BASEMENT WATERPROOFING Virginia And Maryland
Your home will likely be the biggest financial investment you will make. The definition of “home” also goes far beyond any financial connotation.
It’s where you rest and re-energize. It’s where you raise your family and where we work. Home needs protection against those weather elements.
NOVA Basement Finishing after all, when it comes to your home, it’s all about peace of mind.
Waterproofing your home is like putting on a warm, dry coat, protecting you against those elements. Ideally, we waterproof the home for the outside. However, sometimes there is no other option than to waterproof from the inside. Either way, your home will be protected. We guarantee your satisfaction.
WHY DOES MY BASEMENT LEAK?
Foundations that leak cause all kinds of damage to your basement walls whether you live in an old and new home. If your basement is leaking then there is no time like the present to have it repaired and have a better time to add extra layer protection.
When a basement is excavated, the soils that will be backfilled around the new foundation will be much looses soil than the surrounding, undisturbed ground. The loose earth will collect water much faster than undisturbed virgin soils. This water accumulates and eventually will enter into the foundation wall as they age and deteriorate.
HOW CAN I STOP MY BASEMENT FROM LEAKING?
A leaking foundation seems daunting to fix, but we can assure you that with the right waterproofing methods your basement will stay dry, a series of foundation protective coatings, and sealers that will keep the water from penetrating your foundation walls. Weeping tiles will carry away from your foundation and protect your basement from flooding and the event of extreme weather. The only way to relieve this pressure is to install protective layers on the walls, through a system of weeping tiles and sump pump, so that this accumulation of water can be redirected away from the foundation that allows the surrounding soils to eventually dry and settle.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO STOP LEAKS?
Moisture can cause all kinds of damage to concrete, timber, bricks and block structures, which in the end can cost you thousands of dollars in structural repairs.
Maintaining a dry basement is more important than you think as mold spores can travel all over your home and cause all kinds of health issues. Without proper protection, waterproofing provides that leak could be detrimental to health.
INTERIOR WATERPROOFING SERVICE
Waterproofing your basement from the inside is a great option for houses although we always prefer to protect your basement from the outside.
Waterproofing for the inside will stop water from entering into your finished basement, allowing you to enjoy a dry living space. However, there will always be a little bit of water trapped behind the membrane of the foundation which will last in the long term deteriorate your walls.
It’s an effective way of controlling water and keeping your basement dry and free of mold, allowing you to enjoy a space that is warm and dry.
