Exterior Waterproofing FAQs

Exterior waterproofing is a comprehensive process that involves several key steps to ensure your home remains protected against water intrusion. First, our experts conduct a thorough assessment of your property, identifying vulnerable areas such as foundation cracks or areas prone to water seepage. Next, we excavate around the foundation to create space for waterproofing materials. We then apply a high-quality waterproof membrane, followed by improving soil grading and drainage systems to channel water away from your home effectively. Finally, we backfill the excavated area, ensuring proper compaction to prevent future water pooling.

The longevity of exterior waterproofing largely depends on the quality of materials used, the effectiveness of the installation, and environmental factors. Generally, a professionally installed exterior waterproofing system can last up to 25 years or more, providing long-term protection against water damage and preserving the structural integrity of your home.

While DIY waterproofing kits are available, we highly recommend hiring a professional for exterior waterproofing due to the complexity and importance of the process. Certified professionals have the expertise, access to high-quality materials, and the necessary equipment to ensure effective and lasting waterproofing. Attempting to do it yourself may lead to subpar results and potential future issues.

Several signs indicate the need for exterior waterproofing:

  1. Water stains or discoloration on basement walls.
  2. Cracks in the foundation or basement walls.
  3. Damp or musty odors in the basement.
  4. Gaps or deterioration in caulking or sealants around windows and doors.
  5. Water pooling near the foundation after rainfall.
