Top Basement Waterproofing Methods

Let us discover more about the top 3 methods of Basement Waterproofing in Charlotte NC.

 

Interior Sealants and Waterproofing

Unique sealants are injected inside the opening, and penetrate through to the outside in which they seal the path off to possible leaks and moisture. Usually, these sealants last for a long period of time and are available with lengthy warranties. Even though inside sealers are great for preventing humidity and leaks, they will not work perfectly if there’s strong water pressure pushing against the foundation.

Utilizing waterproof coatings on the interior of your basement also is an excellent idea. Concrete waterproofing coatings permanently adhere to concrete walls and will work well where there’s a minor issue with condensation or dampness. Waterproof coatings and sealants can’t repair basement floods or major leaks. For your basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation needs contact Dry Otter Waterproofing.

 

Exterior Waterproofing

This technique is achieved by completely excavating around the house to the foundation’s bottom. Once that’s completed, the walls will be sealed using a waterproof coating, which waterproofs the walls and directs water down to the drain system.

The drain then can be directed to a sump pump or directed down a slope which leads away from your foundation. This method efficiently will stop water from getting inside your basement and home through the foundation or the walls.

 

Interior and Exterior Drainage

If water somehow did make it inside your house through a leak, a proper drainage system will be an excellent method of keeping water under control. The simplest way to use drainage inside the basement includes having a sump pump which collects the water from inside then pumps it away from the house.

Interior drainage systems work by draining underground water from along the foundation of the house then pump it away from your basement. Those drainage systems ought to be ready to work in the instance of a power outage, a snow melt, heavy snowstorm or overwhelming rainfall.
