Waterproofing will result in the driest possible basement. All causes of water seepage are addressed. Experts agree that the very best method to deal with water intrusion is on the outside where the problems exist. If any one tells you different, they are attempting to sell you an interior water control system. No work is necessary inside of the basement when true basement waterproofing is performed, as all of the water is kept outside where it belongs.
Basement waterproofing requires excavating to the footing, or the bottom of the foundation, replacing both sets of drainage tile, footing and downspout, and treating the walls. An important difference is in the material used to waterproof the walls. Most companies are using the same sealant that was being used twenty years ago, tar. Tar is not waterproofing, it is damproofing. Tar has no flexibility and quickly will crack. With the seal compromised, the whole process of dampness leading to cracking leading to water, begins again.
The Integrity Process
Proper waterproofing is an involved process. Few companies accomplish this in a timely manner, with minimal damage to property, and little or no inconvenience to their customers. Fewer yet use the best materials available. Inferior products produce inferior results.
Integrity Waterproofing has proven that, when your focus is on exceeding your customers expectations, excellence becomes routine.
