How to Waterproof Your Foundation
For the best results, protecting your foundation from water damage will consist of a number of foundation waterproofing solutions in conjunction with improved exterior water management.
Foundation Waterproofing Solutions from AquaGuard
From improperly channeled roof water to plumbing leaks, water can make its way into your home and foundation in a variety of ways. Because of this, foundation waterproofing doesn’t come one-solution-solves-all. That’s why AquaGuard offers a number of solutions to address your specific needs. Our Atlanta foundation waterproofing services, basement repairs, and sealing include the following:
Wall crack injection repair
One of the most prominent culprits of foundation and basement water problems is leaking foundation cracks. At AquaGuard, we provide polyurethane foam wall crack injection repair to permanently seal foundation cracks and waterproof your foundation.
Foundation wall cracks can be caused by a number of issues ranging from shrinkage during the concrete curing process to structural foundation damage. At AquaGuard Foundation Solutions, we provide complimentary foundation inspections. During your inspection, we will help you discern the cause of your foundation’s wall cracks and which repair method is best for preventing water intrusion and further structural damage.
AquaStop CrawlSeal™ vapor barrier installation
Basement and foundation walls, especially concrete block walls, allow in cold and moisture from the outside. Although there are many foundation waterproofing solutions that attempt to prevent this from occurring, none are as effective and reliable as vapor barriers.
Our AquaStop CrawlSeal™ vapor barrier system is a 20-mil thick plastic liner that is durable, mold-resistant, poly-reinforced, and 100% waterproof. It stops water vapor from entering your basement and drains wall leaks, completely protecting your basement from mold growth, pest infestations, high utility bills, and structural damage.
AquaStop BasementGutter™ perimeter drain installation
Most basements flood at the wall-floor joint—a perimeter drain eliminates this possibility by capturing water at the point it enters the structure and diverting it to a sump pump. AquaStop BasementGutter™ perimeter drainage system, is guaranteed to never clog and is backed by a warranty. This foundation waterproofing solution installs in as little as one day, costs half as much as exterior foundation waterproofing, and doesn’t require excavation outside of your home.
Sump pump installation
A reliable sump pump is the most important component of a complete foundation waterproofing system. Many basement and foundation waterproofing solutions rely on sump pumps to dispose of captured water. Not only that, but your sump pump is your first line of defense against major flooding.
At AquaGuard, we install the most reliable sump pumps on the market, ensuring you’ll never have to worry about power outages, clogs, or capacity.
