What is waterproofing?

Waterproofing your home is taking steps to make sure that the place where they live is dry, comfortable, and healthy. One can take various steps to make a structure more waterproof, with many of these options being compatible and complementing each other, thereby creating the optimal scenario for achieving a dry and water-sealed environment. These steps include waterproofing the outside of the property through the installation or replacement of vapor barriers, weeping tile, or correcting issues with the foundation and basement walls by fixing and closing cracks. Steps can be taken inside as well by adding or replacing a sump pump, installing a dehumidifier, and cleaning out drainage systems.

How do I know when I need to invest in my property’s waterproofing?

What is waterproofing

Normally speaking, when a waterproofing issue arises, it is easy to determine that there is an issue that will require attention. Moisture penetration presents itself in many noticeable ways, such as a damp or musty smell, crystallized mineral deposits left on the floor or walls, cracks in the walls and floor, and sometimes even pools of standing water, which can be repaired through interior waterproofing services or avoided with a sump pump installation. At other times, the evidence of a waterproofing issue can be more dramatic, like if you suffer from basement flooding after a storm or during a spring thaw.

The more difficult parts of waterproofing assessment are both in accurately finding the source of the moisture penetration, and being able to get to it in order to correct it. Some situations can be as simple as installing a battery pump backup to your sump pump if your home suffers from power interruptions. Inside the property, this can mean pulling down drywall or pulling up flooring in order to find source of the problem and to remove any damaged materials. It could also just mean you need to invest in a drainage system installation or a drain cleaning and inspection service.

For exterior waterproofing, this can mean some digging in places in order to scope out a clog in the weeping tile or sewer hookup, or more thorough excavation in order to uncover cracks that are bigger on the outside of the property, replace or repair weeping tile or fix a vapor barrier.

It is always important to deal with a leak or other moisture issue as soon as possible. For professional service with satisfaction guaranteed. We’re here to help! contact us today for a free estimate on your waterproofing needs.
