Waterproofing in building construction involves using membranes and coatings that protect the building’s structural integrity.
In basements, water enters the home through:
- Walls only (most of the time)
- Walls and floor
- Floor only (rarely)
Many waterproofing and water-resistant systems are available.
In some cases, we may waterproof your basement foundation both internally and externally. It’s essential to pick the right waterproofing system for the foundation type—clay bricks, concrete blocks, or poured concrete.
Interior foundation cracks
We inject epoxy resin into the structure.
Exterior foundation cracks
We excavate a trench around the leaking exterior wall. Then we apply a waterproofing barrier. This could be a rubberized flashing system or poured concrete.
