Local Sump Pump installation & Repair

A sump pump keeps your establishment dry by automatically pumping and channeling water away from the foundation. Drain pipe installed inside the basement along the edge of the floor collects water and carries it to a sump pit. The sump pump turns on automatically when water in the sump pit reaches a set level, pumping the water outside the house through a discharge line.

Basement or crawlspace flooding problems are commonly solved through the use of a sump pump. A sump pump installtion should be considered a major renovation. The right sump pump system in your basement or crawl space can mean the difference between a dry establishment or thousands of dollars in flood damage. 

A quality sump pump is an investment that's worth making for years of worry-free flood protection and peace of mind. If the sump pump fails, your basement can flood, causing expensive damage to your establishment and valuables. It's important to have a reliable sump pump that can help you protect your home or business in even the wettest weather.

Have you noticed sagging floors and/or signs of a sinking foundation?

The issue could be your Crawl Space...

Moisture and moisture-related problems have always been common in crawl spaces. Due to their low height and overall conditions, inspecting and maintaining your crawl space can be extremely difficult. Moisture present in the air condensates on surfaces in the crawl space due to differences in temperature between the crawl space and the outside air. Due to this condensation, organic surfaces within the crawl space will develop mold and rot. This mold and rot can cause serious problems for the air quality and the structural integrity of the home.

LS Waterproofing offers establishments with crawl spaces multiple repair services which include:

• Concrete pier/pad(s) additions

• Floor jack(s) additions

• Supplemental shimming for existing support(s)

Basement Window Installations

Basement Egress Windows


 Egress windows serve as an emergency exit for any room that is underground. 

Basement Window Wells


 Window wells can provide an emergency exit, allow natural light into your basement and/or ensure water runs away from your foundation when it rains. 


Egress Window & Window Well System Installations

Egress Window Installation

Planning on finishing your basement, or need major repairs to your establishment's foundation, it is important to install an egress window. 

Egress is a building code term that relates to the ability to exit a room during a hazardous situation such as a fire. Most applications apply to a basement area that will be finished for living space, typically a bedroom.  Adding egress can greatly improve safety in enclosed spaces. Even if a basement is not going to have a bedroom, it may be wise to have an escape route. 

A below- or at-grade window adds considerable value to the equity of a home. Additionally, most building codes require that finished basements have an egress window for this specific purpose. 

Egress windows come in a variety of colors and styles. Standard basement windows are plain, but an egress window can have the same materials and styles of any other window in the home. Please contact LS Waterproofing today to discuss your options.

Window Well Installation

A window well is semi-circular excavation that surrounds a basement window. It is typically constructed from a solid barrier made from corrugated galvanized metal, masonry, plastic or pressure-treated wood. 

Window wells are usually installed for the following purposes:

• Emergency egress

      •  If the window serves a living area -- as opposed to an unfinished basement with exposed utilities  

         emergency escape at a minimum of two locations is required. Window wells allow windows to be used 

         by escaping occupants and emergency crews attempting to enter the house.

•  Prevent moisture damage to basement windows that are at or below grade

      •  The window wells keep the soil away from openings in the foundation walls while still allowing proper 

          grading and drainage away from the house


•  Allow sunlight into a below-grade room that would otherwise require artificial lighting

Contact LS Waterproofing for more details about window wells and egress solutions for your home.
