Denver Basement Waterproofing
Discovering a wet, damp, musty basement or crawl space is a homeowner’s nightmare.
For many in Denver and the surrounding area, the nightmare is all too real. Thanks to the area’s clay loam soil, homeowners often see water in their basement or crawl space when rain or snowmelt occurs. Water damage and excess moisture aren’t ever a one-time problem.
The first time you notice the problem won’t be the last. The water leak will continue until you call a reliable waterproofing expert. Installing a permanent waterproofing system can save you money long-term and even help you avoid health problems from mold inhalation.
The experts at Groundworks have more than 20 years of experience repairing Denver area homes. With more than 1,300 positive reviews, local service awards and a free inspection, there is no reason not to call. Contact Groundworks to schedule a time to meet with our friendly inspectors.

What Causes Basement Waterproofing Problems?
Your Denver home is impacted by the soil and the weather conditions more than you think. It’s the area’s clay loam soil that’s the most problematic. Soil with a high percentage of clay easily absorbs water and expands quickly if the proper drainage system is not installed or has failed at your home. Since Denver receives only 15 to 20 inches of rainfall annually, significantly less than the national average, when rain or snowmelt occurs, the molecules in clay soil are ready to absorb the liquid as quickly as possible.
This wet soil surrounding your home’s foundation doesn’t drain well and commonly finds the path of least resistance into your home. As a result, you may see or feel water on basement walls, see water damage where the floor and wall meet, or notice a basement leak over the top of the wall. Water can enter due to hydrostatic pressure caused by the heavy clay loam soil or because concrete is porous and absorbs water surrounding the foundation.
Regardless of the reason, a permanent drainage system must be installed to stop the problem before it becomes more costly by stealing value from your home and putting your family at risk. Mold easily grows in damp, dark areas, and spores travel through the house because of the stack effect.
Common Causes of Basement Water Problems
Clay Bowl Effect
The clay bowl effect contributes to flooded basements and crawl spaces. Here, we cover what causes this effect and how you can prevent it.
Basement waterproofing solutions need to accommodate for combating hydrostatic pressure. This phenomenon can cause damage to your basement walls.

Our Patented Basement Waterproofing Solutions
If you’re struggling with a basement waterproofing problem or water in your crawl space, Groundworks has permanent options for a fix it and forget it solution. You can feel confident you’ll receive a custom repair for your unique home. Below are a few solutions your Groundworks inspector may suggest.
Basement Sump Pump
The most common solution homeowners in Denver think of when dealing with a wet basement is a sump pump. It’s essential your sump pump is properly functioning and built to last. Often the big box store units won’t do. If you can’t trust your sump pump during wet weather, what good is it?
Groundworks offers the most powerful lineup of sump pumps available. We have answers to clogged sump pumps, failing switches, power failures and provide remote monitoring services. Our sump pumps offer ultimate peace of mind protection regardless of whether you’re at home for a rain event.
Similar to a sump pump, homeowners in Denver may be familiar with a French drain to solve their basement waterproofing needs. Groundworks offers AquaStop BasementGutter™. Similar to a French drain, this patented drainage system is placed inside the home along the perimeter walls, collecting water from both the walls and the floor.
Water is redirected to a sump pump, where it is pumped out and away from the home. The clog-free interior drain prevents groundwater from pooling and flooding your basement. Protecting your home’s structural integrity, your personal belongings, and your investment.
Although not always needed, a basement dehumidifier is an excellent solution to remove water from the air in your basement. Keeping the humidity levels in your basement or crawl space is essential since mold can grow easily in humid areas, even without standing water.
After addressing the water issue, a basement dehumidifier may complement your basement waterproofing solution nicely. Not all dehumidifiers are created equal. Groundworks offers an energy-efficient, self-draining unit capable of removing up to 100 pints of water per day and filters up to 280 cubic feet per minute.
