Waterproofing solutions for the
ultimate peace of mind
If your basement or crawlspace has ever leaked or flooded, then you should consider a professionally installed quality waterproofing system. Without the proper attention, water problems are sure to worsen. Even occasional water leaks can give mold an environment to thrive in and impact the air quality of your home. If you plan to finish your basement, having your basement waterproofed beforehand is a wise investment. Foregoing water management beforehand could lead to costly repair bills in the future. Our waterproofing systems can be customized to meet the needs of any home or basement, regardless of age or size.
Interior Waterproofing Systems
Interior pressure relief systems function by relieving the hydrostatic pressure around the floor and the walls. The installation of the system involves opening the floor around the perimeter of the basement or crawlspace, digging a trench, installing pipe, gravel and mira drain at the footer. In the case of cinder block foundations, weep holes are drilled into the core of the block to relieve any pressure in the walls. The system also includes a pump housing container to collect the water from the perimeter drain to be directed away from the home via a pump and a discharge line.
Exterior Waterproofing Systems
Exterior waterproofing consists of excavating to the footer around the perimeter of the foundation. The walls are cleaned, scraped and sanitized. Any cracks or voids are filled with epoxy and/or hydraulic cement and then a CCW Carlisle membrane is applied to the foundation from top to bottom. At that point a drain is installed at the footer to direct the water to a telescoped crock and sump pump. Lastly, the excavated area is backfilled and tamped.
Sump pump installation requires removing a section of the concrete floor and digging down approximately two and a half feet. At that point, a sump container is installed and surrounded with clean stone (which acts as a natural filter) and concrete is poured level with the existing floor. The pump is installed into the container with a solid pvc discharge pipe that will leave through the foundation and direct water away from your home.
