Overview of Major Basement Waterproofing Services

Difference Between Exterior & Interior Basement Waterproofing

Interior and exterior waterproofing are two distinct methods used to prevent water from entering a building or structure. The main differences between the two are as follows:

  • Location – the most obvious difference between interior and exterior waterproofing is the location where the waterproofing is applied. Exterior waterproofing is applied to the outside of the building or structure, while interior waterproofing is applied on the inside. 

  • Purpose – the purpose of exterior waterproofing is to prevent water from penetrating the exterior of the building or structure, while interior waterproofing is designed to control water that has already penetrated the interior of the building.

  • Cost – exterior waterproofing is generally more expensive than interior waterproofing due to the additional materials and labor required to apply it. However, exterior waterproofing is typically more effective in preventing water damage in the long term.

  • Maintenance – exterior waterproofing requires less maintenance than interior waterproofing. Once the exterior waterproofing system is installed, it can typically last for many years without needing any maintenance or repair. Interior waterproofing systems, on the other hand, may require periodic maintenance to ensure that they continue to function properly.

In summary, exterior waterproofing is typically more effective at preventing water damage, but it is also more expensive and requires more labor to install. Interior waterproofing is less expensive but is designed to control water that has already entered the building or structure.

Some of our Basement Waterproofing Services Milton

What is Included in Basement Waterproofing Services?

Every basement waterproofing project is different. Our basement waterproofing contractors will suggest different services depending on your goals, the extent of the water damage (if any), your budget, and other factors specific to your specific situation. Below are some of the basement waterproofing services Milton.
Interior basement waterproofing is the process of managing water that has already entered the basement through the walls or floor of a building. This approach involves installing various systems and materials inside the basement to control moisture and prevent water from further penetrating the walls or floor. Internal basement waterproofing can involve the installation of interior drainage systems, sump pumps, vapor barriers, waterproof coatings, epoxy or polyurethane injections, and more. These systems work together to control the flow of water, channeling it away from the foundation and into a sump pump, which then removes the water from the basement.
Exterior basement waterproofing is the process of preventing water from penetrating the foundation walls and basement of a building from the outside. Basement waterproofing contractors will excavate the soil around the foundation to expose the exterior walls, repair foundation cracks, and will then apply multiple layers of waterproof coating and waterproofing membrane. As mentioned above, external basement waterproofing is typically more effective than interior waterproofing as it prevents water from entering the basement, as opposed to managing the water that already made it through.
Nothing increases the value of one’s property as much as more square feet. In addition to increasing the height of the ceiling and the footage of your home, basement underpinning is used to help strengthen the foundation. Depending of the extent of foundation damage, location of the property and other factors basement underpinning can use a variety of techniques & services.
Sump pump installation is a common solution for managing water in the basement of a building. It helps remove the water that has already entered your basement. This helps prevent basement floods. Sump pumps are designed to remove excess water that has accumulated in the basement. By removing the water before it reaches a certain level, a sump pump can prevent basement flooding, which can cause damage to the structure of the building and its contents. Sump pumps are a part of interior basement waterproofing.
Foundation cracks can be caused by a variety of factors, such as settlement, shifting soil, or water infiltration. As a building settles, the foundation may shift, causing cracks to form. Shifting soil, such as expansive clay soils, can also cause foundation cracks. Water infiltration can cause the soil around the foundation to expand and contract, which can put pressure on the foundation walls and cause cracks to form. Foundation crack repair method will depend on the size of the crack and other details.

Basement Leak Detection & Basement Leak Repair

If you are experiencing wet basement problems or see foundation leaks on your walls, this could be a sign that you need a foundation leak repair.

Before repairing the leak our team will work to identify the source. Basement leak detection will help identify the source of water infiltration in a basement. Water infiltration in a basement can be caused by a variety of factors, such as cracks in the foundation walls, damaged or clogged drainage systems, or groundwater seepage.

To detect basement leaks, professionals may perform a visual inspection of the basement walls and floors, or use specialized equipment such as moisture meters, thermal imaging cameras, or dye tests to pinpoint the source of the water infiltration.

Plumbing rough-ins refer to the installation of the initial plumbing infrastructure in a building before the walls and floors are finished. This includes installing pipes, vents, and drains that will connect to future plumbing fixtures such as sinks, toilets, and showers. One of our most popular services when working with new construction.

Window Well Installation

Window well installation involves the construction of a well around the outside of a basement window. The well is typically made of metal, plastic, or concrete and serves several purposes, including providing an emergency exit, allowing natural light into the basement, and preventing water from entering the window.

Window wells are required by building codes in many areas and can be installed during the construction of a new home or added to an existing home.
