Although exterior waterproofing has always been the most well known, We now know there is a better way!
But not all foundations are an easy rectangle with 4 corners and 4 straight walls, so what about those awkward spaces in your home that aren't as easy.
Straight walls and 90 degree angles are manageable for the WaterGuard system. The drainage line sits on the footing against the wall and is covered nicely with new concrete.
Maybe you have heard about a hot water tank busting and the pain of that hassle. We have a solution for that.
Homes that have older utilities that shouldn't or cant be moved a trench drain can be installed around that area.
Gas lines or HVAC units are a couple others utilities we might go around. This old pressure tank for a well is a good example of a utility you would not be able to run interior waterproofing behind.
Some older basements may have an entry or doors that the traditional WaterGuard or DryTrak will not work.
An inspection port makes checks and maintenance easy. The interior drainage line can be flushed to ensure there are not blockages unlike exterior drainage where the only way to check it is to dig it up.
These are just a few examples of how to work those challenging areas.
Our inspector will determine the best solution for your home after discussing your concerns and priorities. After you have been presented with the options you and your inspector can decide the best permanent solution.
