Water installation in the basement

Whether your basement is functional or an unused room, flooding is never ideal. Moisture intrusion can creep up on you. As water from the outside slowly makes its way through walls or the foundation, there is a real risk of structural damage and other issues.

Even low level moisture intrusion is a problem. Water encourages mold and mildew, which can damage or discolor structures. There is also a risk to health associated with some kinds of mold. You may initially detect an issue due to a stuffy or damp odor. A visual or touch inspection can also reveal moisture on walls, the floor or ceiling of your basement. With holiday hosting to consider, the last thing you need is a flooding disaster.

Basement Flood Risk

In many cases, moisture is caused by poor ventilation, which causes the basement to become damp. This issue is not related to water coming from the outside but, rather, liquid evaporating into the air. The air becomes humid and cannot escape in a poorly ventilated space. Water will seep into the walls from inside the basement, resulting in a damp environment that is the perfect breeding ground for mold.

Flooding is an entirely different problem that is typically caused by a burst pipe or poor outside drainage. Water that cannot find a clear path to drain away in an effective way may find its way to your basement walls. As more and more water pools up against the structure, seepage will eventually occur. If there is a significant breach in a wall or foundation, this water can flood into the room.

Dangerous Structural Damage

Water is a destructive force, even in low volume over a long period of time. You may detect different types of damage, depending on the affected structures. For instance, wood can rot, expand or contract due to moisture intrusion. A higher water-to-cement ratio in concrete will reduce strength, which is not ideal for supporting structures such as a foundation or basement walls. This kind of damage can compromise the safety of your home.

Drainage solutions from Maxwell Landscaping will effectively stop water from reaching your basement walls. Call our offices today to book an inspection at your North Carolina home or business premises.

Maxwell did a great job installing our outdoor patio and firepit and finished ahead of schedule. When a few minor adjustments need to be made after the project was finished, Troy was very responsive, kept in touch, and had the adjustments made perfectly. Highly, highly recommend!

Christine Tobias

Was very pleased with the level of customer service. I had rock, fill dirt, and mulch delivered. When I arrived I was greeted quickly, they helped me make informed selections, and they delivered immediately. Cost of products was competitive. Will absolutely be coming back here for all of my landscaping/hardscaping needs.

Judy Breeding

Absolutely wonderful experience-Paul and Justin went extra mile to get my paver patio just right. They were pleasant and professional. Several neighbors commented on how neat and careful they were. Troy was especially helpful in every way. Highly recommend!!!

Drew Culbreth

Top Notch company....Reliable and Predictable work. I would put the skill and the results of this company against anyone. The outcome of projects always surpasses the expectation. Troy is great to work with and a stand up guy. Wouldn't want anyone else working in my yard.

Mike Stiene

Matt and Dave installed a beautiful hardscape Belgard wall in our front yard. We would highly recommend Troy and his crew to everyone. Thank you Maxwell Landscaping


Very happy with out outdoor fireplace. When you design a hardscape and its your first one a lot of trust goes to the contractor, especially with the larger area we decided to construct(20x20 w a 6ft fireplace, pavers and large natural stones). We felt very confident in Troy the owner of maxwell landscaping and he did everything to our requests. The job went as planned and his crew arrived when promised and since we had good weather the project was completed quicker than expected. Troy went beyond my expectations and the job estimate remained the same at the end. His crew did an excellent cleanup and I was impressed. To find a contractor in our area who is knowledgable, dependable, and honest is invaluable to me and I plan on using Troy again in the future. Dr Ed Scott and Dr Erin Scott
