What are your options in terms of basement waterproofing and exterior waterproofing services? There are a number of basement waterproofing and waterproofing solutions available to you, through our experienced basement waterproofing contractors. They each come with a difference in pricing, advantages, disadvantages, and reasons to choose one over the other.
The following list consists of our basement waterproofing and exterior waterproofing solutions.
The first one of our wet and leaky basement solutions is an exterior basement waterproofing application. This uses a number of materials including the drain itself to create a basement waterproofing system that effectively drains water from alongside the foundation, down to the footing and away from the home. This is the most expensive and is only suitable in situations where an interior drainage system isn’t feasible.
The next less expensive wet and leaky basement solution is an interior drainage system. This involves breaking up the concrete floor and installing a drain along the footing to a sump pump. This is usually done in homes that don’t have finished basements.
The final, and least expensive wet and leaky basement solution is concrete crack injections. They can only be done in cracked concrete walls. There are two types of injections. Epoxy and polyurethane. Epoxy is the prefered basement waterproofing injection as it adds structural strength; however, it can only be done in dry cracks.
