Your foundation had a tar coating which washed away and now when there is a heavy rain you get a wet basement
- The foundation walls are sealed with a tar like substance during construction
- That is your house’s waterproofing or more technically it is called damp-proofing.
- The tar is degradable and therefore not permanent and does not last foreve
- The porous concrete is no longer sealed and you get a wet basement.
Do you want to seal the wet basement again; or get a French drain and sump pump?
Sealing the foundation involves excavating the entire perimeter of the building.
- The exterior method of drying your wet basement involves excavating the outside of your house to re-apply a seal to the foundation.
- Today there are polymer based foundation sealers available that do not degrade and last for the lifetime of the building.
- Exterior waterproofing prevents water from entering foundation walls therefore preventing the wicking and molding of building materials
The French drain basement waterproofing system is designed to prevent you from having a wet basement.
- The French drain is installed inside the basement, below the floor, around the perimeter.
- This French Drain controls the water, delivers it to the sump pump(s), and discharges it out of the house
- French drain systems are recognized as being effective in controlling basement water.
