Excavation and Coating Methods

Outside excavation and coating methods of waterproofing can be effective, but can also be very costly. Exterior excavation is commonly done when there is water penetration through the walls, in order to expose the exterior wall surface and apply a waterproofing coating or membrane. This method is usually effective, if done correctly, to stop water penetration through the walls.

The major drawback to excavation is the additional expenses incurred in removal and replacement of any sidewalk and/or driveway, deck, plantings and anything else that may be close to the wall you are planning to excavate around, as well as similar expenses should it leak again and require service. Make sure this is all discussed, planned and budgeted for with your contractor when deciding to utilize this method of basement waterproofing.

How To Check For Basement Water Damage

Leaking basements or basement water seepage is a condition that must be arrested as soon as possible, or you could eventually face huge bills for repairing or replacing foundations, walls and floors. What’s more, water in your basement poses health and electrical hazards. It needn’t happen if you stay alert.
