What Causes Water Problems in Alabama?

What Causes Water Problems in Alabama?

Water leaks into a basement or crawlspace through any opening it can find. This includes cracks in walls, floors, and the joints. Even the smallest openings water can get into when there is enough pressure built up. Water can even leak through the concrete itself. This is why basements and crawlspaces are notorious for being damp and humid.

Many people in Alabama experience water seepage in their basement. Why in Alabama? Alabama has shallow bedrock, seasonal high water tables, and massive clay subsoils. These circumstances cause a lot of basement and crawlspace water problems in Alabama homes. Sometimes the water issue is very apparent, sometimes it is not. This is why being knowledgeable of the signs is so important. Through knowing the signs of water issues you will be able to occasionally check your Alabama home and know right away if you need to contact the professionals. Check your basement or crawlspace for some of these signs:

  • Bowed walls
  • Foundation cracks
  • Water seepage
  • Water stains
  • Musty odors and mold

No Leak is Too Big!

No Leak is too Big!

 

water leak, BASF, Coastal Construction ProductsNichols/Grout Tech was recently called in to assist with a massive water infiltration at a major processing plant. Water was coming in at around 75 gallons a minute. We used BASF MasterRoc MP 355 1K and with the assistance of Ed Paradis (BASF), and Tim Fitzgerald and Yon Hammel of Coastal Construction Products, we were able to stop the water and let the processing plant get back to business.

This was a big problem and we had to get the water stopped as fast as we could, so the processing plant could be operational again.
