When the rains in New Jersey sweep through places like Burlington or Monmouth County, the water is directed somewhere. Your basement is the most common place for the water to build up, and can have a serious detriment to your home if you have not had exterior waterproofing services.
There are many benefits to this service, including:
Water will follow the path of least resistance as it tries to find its way back to the rivers. Oddly, your basement is the easiest path if you think about how your house was built.
The vast majority of homes in New Jersey were started by digging a hole in the packed soil. Then your builder set in block or poured concrete and he covers the outside with a tar coating and pushes dirt back around it.
Once the water can get into your home, the tar is only meant to last one year. Best case is you’ll get 2-3 years from it, but your goal is to live dry and happy in your home for 20 plus years. What now? If your builder had done a complete exterior waterproofing job this timing would not be at risk.
You need a waterproof barrier that adheres to the foundation and then has all of its edges that water could penetrate covered with a secure bar system. Then before it is closed up we make sure there is a barrier to avoid the backfilled rock and dirt to impact this barrier so you know what was done is still done when you are all closed up.
If you live in Burlington County or all the way up to Bergen County and everywhere in between, let us help you stop your water issues at the point of entry.
