With experience and expertise, we have the waterproofing solution

  • We will dig from the outside, by hand or with a machine, down to the footing and completely seal the exterior of your foundation wall.

  • Once the wall is completely exposed, we will patch any cracks or holes we may find in the foundation wall. Then we will seal the wall with a flexible waterproofing coating to completely seal the foundation of your home or business. After the wall is coated, we can install either a rigid insulation board or a drainage diverter over the coating. Our representative will be able to explain which would be best in your particular application.
  • The next step in the exterior basement waterproofing process is to install an exterior footer drain to take away any water that may build up around your foundation wall. On top of the exterior footer drain, we will install plenty of washed 2 lb. gravel. In most cases, we back-fill with at least 2’ of gravel. This helps eliminate the hydrostatic pressure that is associated with the wet, expansive clay that may be around your foundation. To finish the exterior waterproofing process up, we will re-grade the work area with screened topsoil. This will allow you to replace any landscaping that may have been removed during the excavation process.
