Basement Waterproofing Process
Sealing the interior walls and floor is a common method to have dispersion in cracks and in pipes in the house having a poured concrete foundation. Sealing the interior through mixtures and coatings has made specifically for this purpose.
How To Waterproof A Basement
There are numerous ways to do basement waterproofing. Two of these are sealing the interior walls and floor, and having operative water drainage in the basement. But before going in details of waterproofing basement methods, one must first understand the requirement. There are several factors that we need to consider while determining the way to waterproof a basement. These factors include:
- The type of foundation
- The source of the leak
- Interior/exterior accessibility
The type of foundation
We must know what type of foundation we are dealing with as different foundation types present different repair options.
The source of the leak
The source of the leak is very important when determining the type of repair. For example: water inflowing a crack can be repaired by injection. But, water that appears through the joint between the floor and the wall require a different method of repair.
Accessibility plays a very important role in determining the method of repair for a basement leak. Incomplete basements allow virtually unbound access to repair most basement leaks from the interior with the exception of leaks behind the electrical panel.
Waterproofing Basement Methods
Sealing the interior walls and floor is a common method to have dispersion in cracks and in pipes in the house having a poured concrete foundation. Sealing the interior through mixtures and coatings has made specifically for this purpose. These mixtures are easily available in hardware stores. This is applied by inserting it into the opening where the surface water pass through. But you can also hire professionals for this because they provide a long term assurance for the repairs that they make.
Another way of waterproofing the basement is constructing an interior drainage for water. This is certainly a means to reach the same goal – keeping water out of the Basement floor.
