When you walk into your basement, does it have a strange odor? Do you notice it’s leaking in specific places? Your basement can leak from one or more of the following areas:
  • Floor
  • Walls
  • Seams
Instead of moving everything in your basement elsewhere, hire our HomeAdvisor®-screened and -approved company. Our waterproofing technicians will evaluate your property, determine the cause of your water issues, and provide solutions to repair problems in a timely and affordable manner.


Dark, damp areas are ideal locations for mold growth. Mold can grow in a variety of colors, including brown, green, pink, and gray. If you’ve had water issues in your basement, you may also have mold growth. Headaches, stuffy or runny nose, itchy eyes, tiredness, and scratchy throats are all common symptoms related to mold exposure. Our experts at J & R Basement Waterproofing will perform reliable mold removal services to ensure you and your family’s safety, as well as your home’s structural integrity.


A sump pump is a pump installed in the lowest area of your basement or crawlspace and is used to help keep the surrounding areas dry. When working correctly, sump pumps help prevent your basement or crawlspace from flooding, even during the harshest weather conditions. However, if your sump pump doesn’t have a battery backup system and the power goes out, your basement or crawlspace may be subject to flooding. Sump pumps can fail to turn on due to:

  • Circuit Breaker Tripping
  • On Switch Failure
  • Pump Motor Failure

Our locally owned and operated company will install battery backup systems that ensure your sump pump works year-round, no matter the weather.
