Exterior Waterproofing

External waterproofing stops seepage of water into your home. Hydrostatic pressure is a common cause. Due to the build up pressure, ground water seeps into cracks in the basement.

Exterior Waterproofing

The exterior waterproofing system repairs your leaky basement by exposing the foundation and applying waterproofing material to create a foundation waterproofing system that will direct and disperse water away from your foundation walls. This is one of the best waterproofing solutions used to fix basement leaks and the most common way to do a basement foundation repair.

Leaks in your foundation can be prevented by maintaining your weeping tile system, or repairing cracks or separation of blocks. Horizontal or vertical cracks in the foundation, or separation of blocks, voids where the foundation and footing meet, allow water to enter into the basement.

If you want to eliminate the musty odours and other allergies that come with a wet basement, water seepage and moisture, waterproofing the exterior foundation walls is the way to go. It will preserve the structural integrity of your foundation and reduce deterioration.

Exterior waterproofing is a system that requires excavation around the perimeter of the building’s foundation. The depth of the excavation depends on the elevation of your property, so most excavations range from 5 to 8 feet deep and are about 2 ½ ft wide. Deeper foundations than 8 feet will require additional shoring and the excavation to be stepped back to greater widths to prevent cave ins.
