Basement Waterproofing

As you know, a leaking basement can quickly ruin the foundation of your home. It prevents you from renovating that space for your family and almost eliminates the possibility of selling it for its true value. Simply put, we stop the water from coming in, and protect it for the future. Our process is very likely stronger than the steps the original builder implemented. Take a look at a project we finished in Medina to see our process from beginning to end. The homeowner is happy to discuss the job with you. Please get in contact with me to reach him.


The Process

Excavate

1. Excavate

We excavate your leaky wall all the way to your footer. We are careful to keep your your surrounding landscape clean and professional.

Pressure Wash

2. Pressure Wash

We then pressure wash your foundation to clean the debris and highlight any cracks where moisture may be entering.

Patch & Seal

3. Patch & Seal

Next, we permanently patch and seal all cracks with Waterplug Sealant. For added protection, we coat the entire end wall with Thoroseal Sealant.

Rubberized Tar

4. Rubberized Tar

The final step in the repair process is to roll on a layer of rubberized tar to prevent further moisture problems from happening to your recently repaired walls.

Drainage System

5. Drainage System

For proper water drainage, we install 4 inch heavy-duty perforated PVC drain pipe along the footer. We also provide a cleanout on each wall we excavated.

Backfill

6. Backfill

We then backfill with #57 premium wash gravel to direct water to the draintile.

Top Soil Fill

7. Top Soil Fill

Finally we fill the last foot with top soil, not dirt or fill material, so you can utilize the area for fresh landscaping plants!

When we finish you will hardly even know we were there!
