Waterproofing diagram, potential leak areas

Post-construction basement waterproofing

We're inside-the-home waterproof specialists, our mission is to correct post-construction water seepage issues and deficiencies that allow water into your home through the basement. We fix leaks, install new sump pumps and repair potential trouble areas before they become damaging and expensive head aches.

New home basement waterproofing

For new home builders that want to be proactive and head potential issues that may occur in the future, the best time to waterproof is right from the get-go. ... learn more

We provide waterproofing solutions for:


Cove joint leaks

An inherently weak spot on any type of foundation, a cove joint is where the floor/floor slab and wall meet. Under certain conditions such as prolonged rain, ground water and resulting hydrostatic pressure along the foundation walls and underneath the basement floor can cause water to seep upward through this joint.

Entrance & window leaks

Below ground entrances and windows are natural weak spots for prolonged water exposure that can cause frame and concrete deterioration leading to basement leaks.

Solution:
Depending on circumstances and the damage, we can rebuild or replace deteriorating concrete and framing, calk with appropriate masonry sealant and re-engineer and re-grade external problem drainage areas.

Floor crack leaks

Foundation floor cracks are caused by settling, shrinkage and stresses as concrete cures. Often, but not always, hydrostatic pressure will force water up from under the floor. In the cases where hydrostatic pressure is present sealing floor is not an option, as water will typically build up elsewhere.

Mortar joint leaks

Over time, the mortar between blocks on cinder block foundations can deteriorate or become porous, allowing water to seep through open joints into your basement. With below ground freezing and thawing. Left unattended joint leaks can become a progressively bigger problem, by compromising neighboring blocks, causing further damage

Solution:
Call us.

Over-the-sill-plate leaks

Over the sill plate leaks are caused when water is able to travel over the top of foundation and comes into the home through a joint where the foundation and upper floor meet.

Solution:
Usually this issue can be resolved with proper exterior grading and drainage. When proper grading and drainage is not an option, we can also seal the foundation and floor joint to prevent water seepage and insect penetration, or we can use exterior waterproofing membrane.

Floor drain leaks

Foundation floor cracks are caused by settling, shrinkage and stresses as concrete cures. Often, but not always, hydrostatic pressure will force water up from under the floor. In the cases where hydrostatic pressure is present sealing floor is not an option, as water will typically build up elsewhere.

Pipe penetration leaks

Water that seeps around pipes for gas, water, sewer and electrical lines is common. Over time seals deteriorate and allow water to seep around the pipe enclosure and into your basement.

Solution:
Call us.

Porous concrete leaks

Weak or poorly poured concrete can become vulnerable to water forces and constant temperature change causing a deterioration in the cement from which water can enter the basement

Solution:
Call us.

Sump pump installation

Water Grabber® Bull Dog™ is a revolutionary new type of sump pump. It works wonders as a stand-alone unit, but in many cases it also serves as the heart and lungs of our Water Trek Aqua Route® interior basement drainage system.

Tie rod leaks

Over time tie rods used in the foundation forming process can rust, leaving a hole which water can pass through.

Solution:
Call us.

Wall crack leaks

Foundation wall cracks are caused by settling, shrinkage and stresses as concrete cures. Typically these cracks run vertical or diagonally from the top of the foundation down and extend to the exterior. Unfinished basements can be repaired from the inside and finished basement cracks can be repaired from the outside. These types of cracks rarely pose structural issues, but it is typical for them to leak.

Solution:
Depending on the foundation wall material, various solutions are available to seal these cracks., but typically we use a polyurethane injection to fill the crack which is further sealed by a Techni-Crack™ Hydrophobic Membrane. Homeowners can be assured they have a worry free solution in place. Warranted for life.
