Waterproof ensures that excess water is carried away from your foundation and basement area completely. This will allow water to be re-directed away ideally to a storm water drain system. Waterproofing is done on the interior and exterior walls of the basement and by means of gutters and drainage pipes and trenches.
Why Waterproof your basement?
Imagine that you have spent money renovating your basement to transform it into an entertainment area for your family and friends, and then your basement floods, causing severe water damage to your furniture, equipment, and flooring. After an expensive and time-consuming clean-up, you discover water damage covering your walls and water puddles occupying the small nooks and crannies in your foundation.
What a nightmare, and the water won't evaporate quickly, creating more dampness in other areas of your walls. Mold will be the next issue you will have to deal with. Mold is quite toxic to both adults and children, and it can exacerbate long-term illnesses like asthma. Maintaining a clean, healthy, and dry basement is critical, and we have the right choices for you to choose from.
Methods of Waterproofing Your Basement
One remedy is to install an appropriate or additional drainage system around your house. Homeowners, on the other hand, find it to be a very costly exercise. This will include the expense of contractors, as well as all of the materials needed for the drainage project. This is the best option for areas susceptible to heavy flooding during the seasons and will sufficiently improve the grading around your home. Furthermore, this is not the only option; we also have more cost-effective alternatives. These solutions, which include epoxy and sealant injections, are used to seal cracks and holes and prevent water from entering. Due to its hydrophilic behavior, when a product like epoxy or sealant is used to fill the area, it is known to swell completely sealing off the region. These injections are ideal for covering smaller affected areas.
How Waterproofing is beneficial to your Foundation and Home in General
Waterproofing your basement has a number of advantages, including stopping water from accumulating on your foundation, ensuring that your foundation's integrity is preserved and will remain stronger for years to come. Protect your investment by means of waterproofing. Floodwater can significantly increase the likelihood of cracking or worsening any pre-existing cracks. Since stagnant water breeds mold, you're more likely to develop health issues or have chronic conditions worsen. You won't have to risk your family's health or the value of your home as we provide affordable choices.
Basement Waterproofing- Interior and exterior solutions
Waterproofing the inside of your basement, in addition to interior drainage solutions, helps to plug cracks and avoids possible leaks and excessive water buildup. While an exterior waterproofing project is costly, it is worthwhile because it keeps water away from your foundation and out of your home or office building. We provide you with the choice that best meets your goals and budget. We can provide one of these options, or a combination of both, to help you achieve your goal.
