What Causes Basement Waterproofing Problems?
A consistently wet basement can snowball into a more significant problem than a homeowner may think. In Colorado Springs, where they receive less than 20 inches of rain per year, it can be easy to push basement water damage off for many other home projects.
The issue with Colorado Springs is the expansive bentonite soil. Although the area receives less than average rainfall, bentonite soil is problematic, changing its volume drastically during wet and dry seasons. This big change in volume means basement leaks pop up quickly and can create a mess in your basement, ruining belongings and creating health problems resulting from mold growth. Mold needs three things to thrive, food, water, and oxygen, all of which your basement has. So keep an eye out for mold in dark corners or on your personal belongings after a significant rain event.
Unfortunately, mold spores don’t stay in the basement. Instead, they travel through the home, kicking asthma and allergy symptoms into high gear and leaving homeowners wondering why.
Stop dealing with the problems and start addressing your water damage as soon as possible. Groundworks has a team of certified inspectors that specialize in basement waterproofing in your area. Since they live and work in your here, they understand the unique conditions Colorado Springs homeowners face and know how to find and solve the root of the problem.
From drains to sump pumps to dehumidifiers, your inspector will provide you with a thorough look at your water problem and recommend only the solutions you need—no high-pressure sales pitch. Contact us to schedule your free, no-obligation inspection.

Our Patented Basement Waterproofing Solutions
Determining if basement waterproofing is the right solution for your Colorado Springs home can be a complicated journey. Thanks to the internet and countless DIY videos, contradictory information is prevalent. The best way to understand the whole picture is to have an inspector perform a hands-on inspection at your home. Below are some of the solutions they may suggest.
Keeping your basement free of water is the first step to a healthy, dry, usable basement. An interior drain system from Groundworks keeps your basement healthy and your home safe for years to come.
The BasementGutterTM Interior Drain System is installed at the perimeter of the basement, collecting water from both the walls and the floor. Water is then moved to the sump pump, where it is pumped out and away from the home. Since BasementGutterTM sits on the home’s footing rather than in the mud, clogs are a thing of the past.
One of the key components of a waterproof basement is a reliable, high-quality sump pump. While there are many sump pumps on the market, choosing a sump pump you know will protect your basement during a rain event is vital. Groundworks offers a unique three-pump unit designed to keep your basement dry regardless of the situation. If the main pump fails, pump two kicks on to do the heavy lifting; if a storm causes a power outage, a third battery-powered pump automatically starts removing water efficiently. In both scenarios, our system will alert you while continuing to function—ensuring ultimate peace of mind.
Wall Vapor Barrier
If you have significant leaking wall cracks, high humidity, or stained basement walls, your home may be a good candidate for a wall vapor barrier product.
AquaStop WallSealTM is installed on your basement walls to keep your basement dry and moisture-free while creating a white, fresh, clean look. Unlike hardware store brands, WallSealTM is thick and won’t rip or tear with everyday use. It also resists mold and mildew growth because of its antimicrobial material. Backed by a lifetime warranty, AquaStop WallSealTM is the best choice to ensure a dry basement.
