If your home has a basement installed underneath it, it will be acting as the foundation system. It therefore makes it the single most important piece of space on your property, tasked with supporting all of the weight of your house. Although, your basement could also be at risk of the effects of moisture. From rainwater and other sources of water, your basement may be directly at risk. If it is left to continually face these problems, the entire structure of your home could be under threat. It is important to negate these unwanted prospects, as early as you possibly can; so that you can ensure the safety of your property.
Basement Interior Waterproofing
When you can visibly see that moisture is penetrating your basement, you want to find a quick and comprehensive fix. From inside your home, we can install a system which will be able to remove any water, as soon as it has entered. If you are looking into interior waterproofing, we will supply you with our sump pump systems. Using a buried series of drainage pipes, your sump pump will extract any liquids and divert them away from the basement. With this approach, you can guarantee that the flow of any water is controlled and will not be able to cause disruption to the surrounding terrain.
Basement Exterior Waterproofing
The other way that you are able to waterproof your basement, is to take precautions from the outside. An exterior waterproofing method will mean that any moisture can be stopped, before it reaches the structure of your home. When you are looking for this particular method, you can put your faith in us, to install you a superior system. Using provenly effective layers of waterproof materials, we will separate your home from the ground around it. All and any moisture will be deflected back into the environment, keeping your basement protected.
Crawl Space Waterproofing
If your home is built with a crawl space at its base, you will know how easily water can build up and pool. For as long as this is able to continue for, the greater the chances of it doing structural damage to your home. With wooden framing, this can lead to rotting and degrading, as well as acting as a catalyst for the growth of mold and mildew spores. It is therefore, very clear to see that having your crawl space waterproofed is all but essential.
The typical way that we waterproof a crawl space, is by using a vapor barrier. Plastic sheeting, that covers every surface, keeps out all sorts of moisture; including rainwater and condensation. In doing this, the chances of any wood rot or molding occurring are eliminated. You may also want to install vapor barriers into your basement space, to add additional water resistance. This is a cost-effective way for you to ensure the longevity of your basement and crawl space, and so is an option you really have no excuse not to be getting.
