Waterproofing foundation exterior walls. How we do it.
excavation waterproofing

Waterproofing your home is important if you want to live in a house with a high air quality. It is also important if you intend to increase the value of your home as well as prolong its life span. Whereas your interior drain tile will serve the purpose of draining water already in your basement, an exterior drain tile is more effective in draining water away from your home before it even gets the chance to get to the interior. Whether the source is ground water, overflowing gutters, heavy rains or even misplaced downspouts, an exterior drain tile will effectively protect your foundation from water damage.

Basement Exterior Waterproofing Process:
Foundation Repair Problems:
Cracked Foundation Walls: The appearance of cracks on your building’s foundation can have any homeowner worried. The causes of these cracks and the impact that the cracks have on your building may cause your foundation walls to bow. If you have noticed these cracks forming or have had them fixed previously, it could mean that your foundation walls have begun to sink or shift. If this problem is occurring in your home, look for other symptoms of foundation problems and consult a professional. This is one of the most serious threats to the structure of your home, but we can permanently solve this problem.
Wall or Ceiling Cracks: Whether drywall, plaster or concrete, walls are susceptible to cracks. Even walls in newly-built homes are prone to cracks, which normally occur from settling. We become concerned when large cracks, or entire wall cracks, develop in your main level or upstairs living environment. If you have noticed these types of cracks, it could be a sign that your foundation walls have begun to sink or shift, and you should have a professional foundation inspection conducted immediately. If a structural problem is left untreated, it will be more costly and lead to further damage to your home.
Windows And Doors Are Not Closing: Get a breath of fresh air and open your windows. Do they require a little tug to open or some muscle to get them shut? If your windows begin to stick or refuse to close properly, it could mean that you have a foundation problem. Check for other symptoms of structural damage, and, if present, you should have your foundation inspected by a professionally trained consultant. Although a shifting or sinking foundation is one of the most serious threats to the structure of your home, and severely compromises its value, it can be permanently fixed.
Concrete Is Sinking Next To Your Foundation: Most concrete sinks due to poor or no compaction of the soil base, or occasionally, poor drainage or soil erosion. With that said, there are actually several reasons why concrete sinks. If the concrete next to your foundation has begun to sink into the ground, it could mean that there is a problem with the way that your patio steps were installed, however, there could be further issues. Look for other foundation problems inside and outside of your home and consult a professional. There is a chance that this problem could be the side effect of your foundation walls beginning to shift or sink. This is one of the most serious threats to the structure of your home, we can solve this problem permanently.
Basement Floors Are Cracked, Uneven or Slanting:

If you have realized that your floors are uneven or slanting, that is a very sure sign that there is a structural problem in your home. The cause could be a flaw in the way that your home was built, or a problem with your floor joists, but it could also mean that your foundation walls have begun to sink or shift. If this problem is occurring in your home, look for other symptoms of foundation problems and consult a professional. Although this one of the most serious threats to the structure of your home, we can permanently solve this problem.

If you have noticed that your basement floor is cracked or uneven, there is a chance that you could have an underlying structural foundation problem.

Often, floors can crack and shift due to changes in the soil beneath the floor or because the floor was poured incorrectly. However, If you have noticed that your floor is continuing to lean or crack more in a certain direction, it could mean that your foundation walls have begun to shift or sink. Although a shifting or sinking foundation is one of the most serious threats to the structure of your home, and severely compromises its value, it can be permanently fixed.
