Information of Exterior Basement Waterproofing

When a basement is excavated, the soils that fill around the new foundation will be much looser. Loose soils will collect water much faster than undisturbed virgin soils. As the building age and deteriorate, the accumulated water eventually will enter your basement.

You should hire a skilled and expert professional for exterior basement waterproofing. They will take a tour round the house to find out the root cause of the problem and find specific solutions to fix the problem areas. A membrane can be applied to the exterior of your foundation walls to keep water and moisture away from your foundation walls. A paraseal membrane also prevents mold and mildew growth. A building which does not use exterior waterproofing membrane always sits on a damp soil. An exterior membrane system will prevent the foundation from sitting on the damp soil and allows the foundation to be dry.

An exterior foundation drain stops the water from pouring through the block walls and keep the basement walls and floor dry. It provides a second layer of protection to your home. Apart from this, crushed stone, perforated PVC pipe and protective filter fabric can also be installed.

Exterior waterproofing is the best for your basement. The process involves excavating the basement floor to the foundation. Then the concrete wall is cleaned carefully and made damp proofed with either a tar or waterproofed with a paraseal membrane. A perforated PVC pipe is then used as a conduit to allow the water to flow through it. This pipe will always slope away from the house as it carries unwanted water.
