As a homeowner, you can see the most visible effects of basement wall damages on the inside of your home, the fact is that the worst of it doesn’t have much to do with the internal state of your walls. Instead, it’s really the outside of your basement that has the most to do with how well it will stand up against the elements and prevent leaks, wetness, moisture, cracks and flooding.
External Waterproofing creates a barrier between the water in the soil surrounding your basement and your home itself. This waterproof membrane helps keep moisture out of the porous concrete and mortar, ensuring it can’t seep into your building. When we waterproof a foundation, we pay close attention to corners, seams, and utility protrusions so that no gaps or leaks are created.
First we excavate around your foundation before installing a membrane around your entire foundation which forms a barrier between the water outside and your home. The material is dynamic, moving with your building’s foundation and resisting cracking, deterioration, and leaking.
Some basement waterproofing companies will tell you that you only way to do the job from the inside. They may recommend an interior system, which could be more intrusive. Our highly trained inspectors can determine when the seepage can be corrected from the outside of your home.
