How Do We Waterproof Your Concrete Foundation?
The first step is confirming you have a problem through visual and on-site inspection. Then we’ll need to do some exploratory digging right to the footing of the foundation with a small excavator to uncover the affected area. Mini-excavators are handy for this process as they can get into tight spaces and small yards without causing extensive damage to the property.
Every foundation situation we encounter is unique and different repairs are available depending on the overall condition of the foundation. There are a variety of repair methods we can employ to repair your foundation and protect it from further water intrusion. Cracks need to be parged and repaired properly and then “Blueskin” can be applied.
Blueskin is a rubberized asphalt membrane that is laminated to a Polyethylene film through a proprietary process. This provides a very durable, waterproof barrier that is tough yet flexible and adheres very well to concrete substrate such as a foundation. This provides a modern waterproof barrier for any concrete foundation.
Proper basement and foundation waterproofing requires excavating the dirt and soil around your foundation right down to the footing. It also requires inspection and repair or replacement of your drainage tiles.
