When Should I Waterproof?

Waterproofing is the art of using sealants, installation of sump pumps, and drains to prevent water from entering your home. This technique should be employed when

you see:


~ A high water table

~ Basement leaks

~ Cracked walls

~ Decay in walls

~ Efflorescence on basement walls

~ Ground saturation

~ Ground water builds in the soil

~ Hydrostatic pressure is observed in walls

~ Moisture related damages

~ Mold in walls

~ Peeling paint

~ Structural damage

~ Water seepage in crawl spaces

~ Water, snow, and/or heavy rain build up inside window wells

~ Weeping tile that is blocked or damaged
