Professional Basement Waterproofing Services in New Jersey

Weather conditions, poor foundation building materials, inadequate labor techniques, and other outside factors can cause severe water damage in the lower level of homes. The installation of a basement waterproofing system prevents the water damage from ruining the home and personal items and causing other structural damage. Over time, water issues can escalate and make your home unlivable. Homeowners should invest in a basement waterproofing system before the damage is too costly and extensive.

The first sign of water issues in the basement is seepage. Seepage is a slow and steady leak in the lower level; homeowners will notice water running down the walls, moisture spots, water on the floor, and possibly seepage at the cove joint where the wall meets the floor. We recommend calling a professional waterproofing company, like First Choice, immediately after noticing seepage. Our team will promptly and effectively evaluate the situation and determine the best plan of action for your waterproofing needs.

Our Basement Waterproofing Solutions and process

Signs To Waterproof Your Basement

Damp and Musty Odors with Dehumidifier

Damp, Musty Odor

Mildew and mold can cause a musty smell in your basement. A basement or crawl space with water issues is more prone to mold and mildew growth.

Mold Growth


The most common causes of mold growth on walls are high humidity, condensation, and water leaks hidden inside the wall.

Wall Cracks

Cracks on Walls/Floors

Over time, most cracks in the wall or floor occur gradually and may go unnoticed for a while until homeowners discover a leak. The primary cause of water in your basement is from leaking wall cracks.



Efflorescence is a crystalline deposit of salts on concrete, brick, stucco, or natural stone surfaces. The salt deposits are left behind when water is present in or on the masonry surface. Efflorescence can cause basement and crawl space walls to flake and peel away.

Bowed Walls

Bowed Walls

Excess moisture is the most common cause of bowed walls. Basements with bowed block walls may indicate a large separation between two layers of the blocks where the bowing occurs.

Water Stains

Visible Water Marks On Walls

Visible watermarks on the walls indicate wetness seeping through behind the wall. Exterior hydrostatic pressure can cause this water damage and lead to mold and mildew growth in the basement or crawl space.
