Interior waterproofing is done using a sealed drain tile which is installed next to the footing, below the concrete floor. This drain tile system can be used with a wall vapor barrier that directs the water vapor to the drain tile. This keeps the basement free from mold, mildew, and soil gases like radon. The drain draws water from under the slab and drains it into a sump pump system. The sump pump expels the water away from the foundation.
Exterior waterproofing consists of:
A surface drainage system keeps water from pooling in your yard and around your home. Catch basins and grates are used to protect property against water damage caused by excess rainwater. The catch basins are designed as a collection point for the water runoff. The grates are designed to filter out leaves, sticks, and other debris that can clog the drain pipe.
All of the products that Foundation Repair Services uses for waterproofing are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the best in the industry.
