What Is Basement Waterproofing?

Waterproofing is a technique used to keep water out of a subterranean room which, in this case, is a basement. Basements are more prone to water leaks and flooding because they are below the ground where water generally tends to collect. As a result, some poorly built or older basement foundations are unreliable. Instead of rebuilding your entire foundation, basement waterproofing is a more affordable and effective alternative.

Types of Basement Waterproofing Techniques

Depending on what your basement needs, there are a few different types of basement waterproofing techniques available

  • Sealant materials
  • Drains
  • Sump pumps

Why You Need Basement Waterproofing

In Massachusetts, the state requires builders to have some sort of drainage system installed for all structures that are built at or below ground level. It’s especially important for homeowners in Massachusetts to opt for basement waterproofing because the water table is high and ground water tends to build up due to the low altitude of the coastal areas such as the North Shore and Boston.

If you have a concrete poured basement and are noticing cracks and chips in the concrete, our basement waterproofing technique is the best option for your home. Our professional basement waterproofing and mold removal company uses a thin yet effective sealant to prevent moisture from entering from these cracks. Using epoxy or urethane substance, the cracks and chips in your basement walls and floors will be filled and sealed completely.
