Basement Waterproofing

Waterproofing is needed anytime a structure is built at ground level or below ground. Waterproofing and drainage considerations are especially needed in cases where ground water is likely to build up in the soil and raise the water table. This higher water table causes hydrostatic pressure to be exerted underneath basement floors and against basement walls. Hydrostatic pressure forces water in through cracks in foundation walls, through openings caused by expansion and contraction of the footing-foundation wall joint and up through floor cracks. Hydrostatic pressure can cause major structural damage to foundation walls and is likely to contribute to mold, decay and other moisture related problems.

Foundation crack repair

Many foundation cracks can be repaired from the interior or exterior. We typically use our Epoxy / Urethane Injection Process. This process involves sealing the crack on the inside with epoxy and injecting a urethane resin which fills the entire crack to the outside wall.

Interior Drain Tile Installation

Interior drainage systems installed below the water in basement floors to collect underground water and wet wall seepage. A trench is dug round the inside perimeter of the wet basement floor. And A perforated plastic drain tile pipe is installed and surrounded by gravel. The floor is re-cement over the drain tile system. A French drain system usually connects to a sump pump.
