How We Handle Your Basement Exterior Waterproofing

Basement ExteriorThe biggest difference between professional basement waterproofers and the amateurs are those that consider the entire source of a basement leak; inside and out. At Tom’s Basement Waterproofing, we don’t just get the water out of your basement, we make sure there is no way that it’s going to get back in. The only way to ensure this is to waterproof your basement not only from the interior, but also the exterior.

First, we examine the entire exterior of your business or home, from top to bottom. If drainage problems are existing on the roof, we handle it. If the slope of your foundation is coming back to your walls, we fix it. By closely looking over the entire building structure of your foundation, we can get a better idea of what exterior waterproofing is necessary.

Here are a few of the most common ways that Tom’s Basement Waterproofing handlers exterior basement waterproofing.

  1. Exterior Membrane – This is the first step to any exterior waterproofing venture. At Tom’s Basement Waterproofing, we place a thick substance of membrane around your entire exterior foundation, in order to ensure that no water will seep through your business or home again.
  2. Crack Injections – In order to repair the cracks that are forming around your foundation, we need to inject them with material that will stop the water from coming into your walls. We utilize a polyurethane substance in order to reach smaller and hard-to-reach areas of your foundation, and keep the moisture away.
  3. Drainage – After we’ve installed a membrane around the exterior of your property, we will often add in outside drainage systems, in order to confuse the water of where it wants to go. This drainage system will guide water along a different path and away from your basement.
  4. Sheeting – Tom’s Basement Waterproofing will use a variety of different sheeting to protect your basement, including vinyl and plastic. If your basement waterproofing is going to be a larger project, we will often install sheeting to catch water in areas we’re not able to tackle right away. This will also show us where the biggest problem areas for water in your basement are present.

Remember, when it comes to basement waterproofing, you always want to make sure the job is done right, inside and out. At Tom’s Basement Waterproofing you can guarantee that our thorough inspecting of your home will save you thousands in repairs in the future!
