The Leaky Basement Cure
Once you’ve been diagnosed and have a prescription our team of doctors can start you on the road to recovery. The cure will more than likely be the following.
Excavate alongside the foundation wall in the problem areas, clean the wall off to find any cracks or holes that have formed in the wall or gaps between blocks where the original mortar has deteriorated and fallen out. We need to seal the cracks and holes in your foundation wall that serve as an entry point for water. Sealing these openings is important to stop your basement from leaking.
High-quality materials are used as needed to seal your basement.
- Professional-grade wall repair mortar
- Flexible sheet membrane coverings
- Exterior drain tile systems
- Compactable soils
- (used to re-grade for proper drainage away from the problem areas that have sunk low over time and allow standing water.)
Before excavating some homes may need adjustments to paved surfaces like concrete walkways, driveway, and patio areas. They can sink or crack over time allowing water to drain the wrong way and settle near the problem area. Sometimes the pavement will need to be partially removed by using a concrete saw to cut out any problem sections or completely remove the paved area. Once it has been removed we now can access that area to excavate and seal.
After the walls are mortared and sealed tight, the trench will be filled in and compacted using hand tampers or gas-powered plate compactor. Getting the trench packed in properly is important to make sure that there is no settling after the work is completed.
Next, we add compactable soil along the foundation to create a slope away from the problem areas. The newly graded will be sloped gradually towards the yard in order for the water to drain into the lawn or landscape area where it can soak in naturally, and away from the home.
