The Importance of Basement Waterproofing
A wet or damp basement can lead to a wide range of problems that can be both costly and dangerous. Water damage to the structure of your home can lead to significant repairs, while mold growth can cause health problems for you and your family. Basement waterproofing can help prevent these issues, keeping your home safe and dry.
The Process of Basement Waterproofing
The first step in basement waterproofing is to inspect your basement for signs of water damage, such as dampness, mold growth, and water stains. Our team of experts will inspect your basement thoroughly to determine the cause of the problem and recommend the best solution.
Exterior waterproofing is the process of waterproofing the foundation from the outside. This method involves excavating the soil around the foundation to expose the exterior walls. The walls are then cleaned and treated with a waterproofing membrane, which is applied to the surface to create a waterproof barrier.
Interior waterproofing is the process of waterproofing the basement from the inside. This method involves removing any damaged or deteriorating materials, such as drywall or insulation. The walls are then cleaned and treated with a waterproofing material, such as a liquid membrane or a sealant.
Drainage systems are an important part of basement waterproofing. The purpose of a drainage system is to collect and remove water that has penetrated the foundation. There are two main types of drainage systems: interior and exterior. Interior drainage systems are installed on the inside of the basement and collect water that has entered the foundation. Exterior drainage systems are installed on the outside of the foundation and collect water before it enters the foundation.
Foundation Crack Repair
Foundation cracks and basement leaks are common problems in basements. These cracks and leaks can be caused by a variety of factors, including settling, water pressure, and freezing and thawing cycles. Our team of experts can repair foundation cracks and leaks to prevent water from entering your home.
Basement Flood Protection
Basement floods can be caused by a variety of factors, including heavy rain, snowmelt, and sewer backups. To protect your home from basement floods, we recommend installing a sump pump and backup battery system. A sump pump collects water that has entered the basement and pumps it away from the home. A backup battery system ensures that the sump pump will continue to function even during a power outage.
