Choosing the right waterproofing systems for Twin City homes should always start with an exterior solution. Over time, many things happen that can cause a water seepage into the basement. The soil around the foundation settles, concrete, and other paved surfaces can eventually tip back towards the home, holes and cracks form in foundation walls.
These are some of the reasons for wet, damp, musty smelling basements. It’s necessary to action once you become aware of the situation as black mold and bacteria can grow under these conditions. You may also find more creepy bugs in your home that seek out these moist areas to live and breed.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Systems
There is no need to tear up the basement floor! We solve leaky basement and foundation problems by working outside the home. By using one or more of these systems, we prevent the water from entering your basement.
Grading and Regrading
Grading & Regrading is one of the best ways to shed water away from your foundation walls and divert it to an area where it can safely permeate naturally into the earth, and not into your basement.
French drains are a good way to shed unwanted water from a flat area in your yard.
Exterior Drain Tile
Exterior drain tile is perforated and intercepts the water before get to your foundation.
Foundation Waterproofing Membranes
Waterproofing Membranes are used to seal cracks in the exterior foundation walls.
Channel Drains are commonly installed along concrete or asphalt areas to intercept water similar to a French drain but made specifically for paved surfaces.
Gutter extensions often do not extend out far enough out from a home’s foundation walls or may be missing altogether allowing water to pool up by your foundation walls and entering your basement.
Sometimes it is necessary to install window wells or raise the height of existing wells to keep soil and moisture away from the window frame.
