A wet basement may be the result of several different issues. The most common are:
- buildup of hydrostatic pressure,
- foundation cracks,
- overflowing gutters and/or insufficient downspouts,
- storm sewer backup and,
- window well seepage.
There are many routine activities you can implement to avoid basement flooding.
Removing debris from storm drains, installing window well covers, and cleaning out and redirecting gutters can help a great deal to prevent an accumulation of water around your home’s foundation.
With the help of Waterproofing PD, you may also want to consider installing a sump pump system to remove excess water and complete full interior and exterior waterproofing.
The best waterproofing method depends a lot on location, accessibility, and budget. In most cases, exterior basement waterproofing should be the first choice. It is the most extensive and reliable waterproofing method, as it protects your foundation from the outside.
However, sometimes there are extenuating circumstances that do not allow for exterior waterproofing.
For example, if buildings are too close together the equipment required for exterior waterproofing methods will not fit. In cases like that, interior waterproofing is the ideal solution.
Contact Waterproofing PD today to determine which waterproofing method will fit your needs the best.
