Water Leaks in Your Basement
There are various leaks that can occur within your basement were seen and unseen water poses a threat to your concrete and structural integrity. Whereas, basement waterproofing is the only solution. These will consist of:
Leaky Wall Cracks
If you notice wall cracks in your basement walls, in most cases water, will leak through. These can range between minimal to extreme leaks depending on the severity of your wall crack, and the surrounding soil conditions that may be water-logged. This can come from climate and naturally occurring materials in the soil which create hydrostatic pressure against your walls. Cracks begin to form, and leaks begin to spout water within your basement. A simple basement waterproofing system will help alleviate this problem by mitigating water before it meets the wall.
Floor Crack Leaks
Floor crack leaks are similar to wall cracks. Hydrostatic pressure and rising water tables create unstable soil conditions underneath your basement floor, causing cracks and leaks. By using a basement waterproofing system underneath the concrete floor, we can effectively mitigate excess water away from the foundation to remove pressure and ward off further leaks.
Other Leaks from Unknown Entrances
There are other various openings that can occur, beyond the obvious cracks in most basements. These consist of cove joints which are areas where the wall meets the floor, masonry walls where the filling between mason bricks are leaking, basement window leaks around the seal, plumbing pipes that do not have the appropriate seal around the opening, 'tie-rods' which are exposed metal pipes from deteriorating concrete, and over-flooded floor drains. These are all different aspects of wet basement waterproofing issues that have affected thousands of homes. Each of our waterproofing systems will address each unique problem in specific ways to repair, protect, and mitigate water.
