Buildings and homes located in Queens, New York have unique characteristics that increase their risk of basement leaks. Saturated wet soil conditions exist under many basements within the Queens county borders. These wet soil conditions existed long before Queens was developed into the populous county that it is now, from when it was woods and farm land.
The foundations of the homes and buildings that were since developed were installed on these wet parcels of land. Unfortunately, the typical basement that was constructed is susceptible to water leaks through the floors and walls as minimal work was performed to protect against basement water leaks.
Fortunately, there are means and methods to waterproof the basements of the houses and buildings in Queens that are efficient, effective and most importantly, affordable. Sub-floor drainage systems sometimes called French drainage systems offer a long-term solution by removing the water from the soil under and around the house. Another common solution is to excavate the soil from the outside and waterproof foundation cracks.
