Not only does water infiltration cause structural damage, but a leaking foundation can lead to a number of other problems, such as mold growth, increased humidity, and musty odors.

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 foundation waterproofing services include the following:
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.
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 CleanSpace® 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.
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.
WaterGuard®, AquaGuard Foundation Solutions’s 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.
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 Foundation Solutions, we install the most reliable sump pumps on the market, ensuring you’ll never have to worry about power outages, clogs, or capacity.
What Causes Foundation Leaks?
Here are a few of the most common causes of foundation water problems:
- Improperly channeled roof water
- Floor and wall cracks
- Plumbing floods
- Water heater floods
- Sump pump failure
- Hydrostatic pressure
- Clay bowl effect
- Incorrect yard slope

Before Our Visit

The cost of waterproofing a basement or drying a crawl space depends on how you customize your solution—no two jobs are ever the same! What you will not experience are high-pressure sales tactics or prices that suddenly drop ten to fifty percent over the course of the visit. Our personable, professional representatives know that our products speak for themselves and we work off of a published price list.

One of the best things about having us waterproof your basement is that we do it all! Our installation crews are trained to install all of our wet basement solutions, including sump pumps, drainage systems, dehumidifiers, windows, and options for your walls and floors.
In most cases, the full installation will be finished in less than two days, and your basement or crawl space can be used immediately after the installation is complete. You’ll be surprised by the skill, speed, and flexibility of our team of waterproofing professionals.
Follow-up from Our Office
Our service to you does not end the day we complete the installation. At AquaGuard Foundation Solutions, we like to follow up a few days after the work is completed to make sure that everything was complete the way it was proposed.
