Our professional basement waterproofing contractors are skilled in diagnosing existing issues, spotting potential problems, and fixing them all before it’s too late.

Wet Basement Wall Repair in Milwaukee
Moist or wet basement walls are a sign of an improperly waterproofed foundation. Wet walls can also lead to bigger issues in your basement, from cracks in the concrete walls to flooding and mold. Some homes may experience bowed or leaning basement walls caused by outer pressure on the home’s foundation. Stabilization is necessary to prevent more cracks and further damage to the basement walls.
It’s not too late to regain your basement space back. Our Milwaukee concrete contractors know the common causes of bowed or wet basement walls and how to repair them. Don't let the problem fester until you're dealing with a collapsed foundation wall.. Contact MUDTeCH™ today for more information about our Milwaukee basement wall services.

Milwaukee Egress Window Installations
Egress windows are now required for finished basements with a bedroom. Egress windows allow a means to escape the basement in the event of a fire (or to let firefighters in). There are numerous code requirements, and they vary from city to city – so be sure to check with your local ordinance on what is required for your home.
Basement egress windows have four main requirements as set by the International Residential Code (IRC):
- Minimum width of opening – 20 inches
- Minimum height of opening – 24 inches
- Minimum net clear opening – 5.7 square feet (5.0 square feet for ground floor)
- Maximum sill height above floor – 44 inches
The Milwaukee basement contractors of MUDTeCH™ will know the codes and requirement for your area. If you have questions, or want to get a quote on egress windows for your home, call MUDTeCH™ at 262-337-0934.
Signs Your Basement Needs Repairs
It can be difficult to tell if water has entered your basement. While standing water after a flood is very obvious, there are many subtle signs water has found a way into your home.
Here re several ways to tell if your basement has water infiltration:
- Musty odor
- Stains on walls, floor, or ceiling
- Peeling paint
- Mold and mildew
- Cracks or spalling in concrete
- Mineral deposits (efflorescence)
- Bowed out walls
- Puddles of standing water
Any of these signs means water has already found a way into your home. Older homes are more susceptible to water damage since they were not built with a modern understanding of waterproofing. With our professional waterproofing service, you’ll be able to enjoy your basement once more without worrying about water damage.
