If you have a wet or leaking basement, we can install an interior waterproofing system to drain water out of your home and keep your basement clean and dry. Interior waterproofing is typically a more simple and affordable solution for basement drainage. Many homeowners in Virginia choose to install an interior waterproofing system because it is less labor intensive and does not require removal of landscaping like exterior waterproofing does. It can also be installed all year round and is not affected by the outside weather or elements.
Our interior waterproofing system consists of:
The perforated drain pipe, which is installed inside the perimeter of the footing, is the most effective part of the system. It is designed to drain the area to the sump basin. Because sump basins are made out of polyethylene, they are strong and impact resistant. This increases the life expectancy of the sump pump, preventing it from crushing or deteriorating. Also, the sump basin has a unique bell-shaped design that makes it more efficient. As groundwater fills the pit to a certain level, a switching device turns the pump on and water is diverted outside of the home.
The water channel is a lightweight system that consists of interlocking joints to make connections fast and easy. Its modular design makes it flexible. With a channel drain, there is no need for grading a deck surface. Channel drains can be applied to parking lots, driveways, patios, and much more.
Another interior waterproofing method that we use is crack injection repair. If you have smaller cracks that are allowing water into your home, and they are not causing serious structural damage, we can seal them with an epoxy or polyurethane injection.
Our crack injection materials are commercial grade and extremely reliable, manufactured by Earth Contact Products. These waterproofing resins are designed to completely seal cracks and voids in your foundation, which prevents water and air leakage.
