Exterior waterproofing is work that is better left to the professionals to take care of. If you don't know what you are doing, you could end up doing more harm than good by using store-bought products and systems. At The Basement Doctor, we use the best of the best materials when it comes to protecting a home from the outside. We will make sure that we take care of all lawn grading problems, and we will also be sure that moisture isn't able to accumulate next to your foundation walls where it will eventually find its way into your basement environment. Regardless of whether you have a finished basement or not, you still need to be sure that you are keeping this space protected, safe, and dry.
Extensions can be added to your downspouts to stop water from building up next to your foundation walls after it is sent out from the top of your home. These extensions are available in several different colors so that they can match with your existing gutter system. Installation is fast and simple for our team of professionals.
We install French drains in the lowest lying-area of a lawn where water will usually collect during a heavy rain fall or on a warm winter day when there is melting snow. The drain will have pipes that can lead into your home and into the sump pump system. The drain will help with preventing problems with lawn flooding.
Exterior Waterproofing Membranes
To protect your foundation from moisture damage, we can install exterior waterproofing membranes around the base of your home. This membrane has special dimples, or holes, built into it that will let water flow inside. Once inside, the moisture will be directed into your home and into a sump pump. The water in the pump will eventually be sent out of the home once it reaches a certain level inside of the basin. This moisture will be sent out to a safe distance away from the home. It is important to protect your foundation against moisture since it can easily make its way into your basement via tiny cracks on the surface.
