Leaky Basement Waterproofing From The Outside

Over time water can seep into your foundation walls slowly deteriorating it and making it weak and prone to damage. Waterproofing your home from the exterior foundation wall will strengthen it and protect your most valuable asset from water damage and moisture in the basement. This can help eliminate problems due to moisture such as mould and damp odors.

Common Exterior Foundation Problems

Type of Foundation

Leaky Basement Waterproofing - Block Foundation Wall

For block foundation walls, a small hole will be drilled to let the water out.

Brick and block walls are a very common type of foundation wall. Water can seep through any cracks in the mortar joints and at times it can be very difficult to track where the water is leaking from as it can travel. For block foundation walls the water typically sets on the bottom and to release the pressure of the water buildup, a small hole will be drilled to let the water out.

Mortar Joints

Leaky Basement Waterproofing - Mortar Joints

Mortar joints are spaces in between your brick, stone or concrete blocks. Over time these joints can become deteriorated and allow water to seep through and into your basement.

Window Well

Water can leak into your window sill to prevent this, you can upgrade or replace your older window well. Installing a gravel drainage bed and vertical weeping tile will assure that if there is any water seeping through will be properly drained out. We also provide customer made window well covers that will protect any debris from getting in and disturbing the drainage process.
