Choose the waterproofing option that suits you best:
Indoor waterproofing diverts water from the foundation toward the sump pump, so that it can be discharged outside your home.
We've developed the Pressure Relief System®, an inside waterproofing option that handles hydrostatic pressure that exists under a basement.
Pressure causes water seepage, and leads to discoloration and mold or cracks in the floors and walls. The inside system includes a pressure relief pump and piping that releases water in the walls.
This exterior approach involves removing the earth away from basement walls (where possible), cleaning and recoating the walls, and updating the existing drain tile. Additionally, the idea is to treat any foundation cracks etc., that are found, to attempt to prevent future seepage. This system relies on the structural integrity of the original foundation basement walls, and can only be performed where access can be gained to those areas.
You should be aware that this method is also fairly comprehensive and that some disruption to landscape and or side walk areas, along with resettlement, is to be expected.
This inside, outside and indoor environmental approach to total foundation protection gets its name, and its patent, from its ability to resolve the entire water problem vs. just one or two parts of it like option 1, or option 2.
The Multi-Step System gets its popularity by not only solving the current problem, but preventing future ones as well as improving the comfort and health of the homes indoor atmosphere.
Usually only necessary in cases where the foundation has seen neglect due to poor maintenance, this method can give you an entirely new foundation in place of the original deteriorated one. Because of its major impact on landscaping, driveways, sidewalks, utilities and re-settling, not to mention extreme cost, this option is usually reserved for only the most serious foundation cases.
