A Message From Our Founder
"I've been told more than once that I'm a bit rough around the edges. My videos are up front, in your face, and no-nonsense. So what?
If you haven't noticed, yes, I do them myself. I started making videos before there was YouTube. Back then, I used Photobucket. The total reason for making all the effort was, is, and always will be to educate on everything you want to know about basement waterproofing and foundation repair."
— Daniel J. O’Connor, waterproof foundation expert and founder of Hydroarmor Systems

Warning Signs of Basement Water Damage!
A musty odor in the basement, is most likely, due to mold, mildew and dry rot. Mold live in areas that have more than 50% humidity, which likely means that the basement has a leak.
Damp Spots on Walls
Discoloration, white or dark outlines surrounding a discolored area indicates the presence of a leak or substantial moisture has penetrated through that area.
A brownish-black fungus grows on walls, clothing and other surfaces. Dry rot is a byproduct of the decay process. A repair process in this case must include finding and remediating the source, anything less is useless.
Mold or Mildew
Mold and mildew grow and multiply in the presence of excessive moisture. Mold and mildew can grow on any surface with a food source.
Cracked Walls and Floors
Step-cracks on the wall, vertical or horizontal cracks are usually caused by settling and pressure on the walls or under the floor. In a high water table area, water accumulation and mixing with mud create tremendous pressure resulting in cracks and sometimes bursting of a wall. Identifying the right cause and proper fix is a must.
Warped paneling is a sign of excessive moisture. Finishing a basement with moisture issue is a waste of money. Anytime you want to finish the basement, make sure it is dry.
White Chalky Substance on Walls
Excessive moisture is also a cause for breaking down the cinder blocks or poured foundation. Sometimes leading to calcium leaching out causing the presence of white chalky material on the wall. A prolonged exposure to excessive moisture can lead to disintegration of the cement and loss of structural integrity.
