What You Should Know About Basement Waterproofing, Pond Creek, Kentucky

Of the many tasks required to take care of your property, it’s understandable if basement waterproofing may initially slip your mind. However, as anyone who has worked with The Dwyer Company has come to understand, this project is of the utmost importance in order to protect your property. But what exactly does this type of project entail? These expert contractors with locations in Louisville and Lexington, KY and West Chester, OH, have your answers.

When Do I Need Basement Waterproofing?

Basement waterproofing is a common solution that is used when homeowners discover persistent dampness or leaks in their basements. The exact nature of each waterproofing project can vary, depending on the needs of the property—but each waterproofing project is designed to prevent future leaks and help property owners avoid the need for foundation repair.

How Does It Work?

basement waterproofingBecause each waterproofing situation is unique, there are several techniques that may be used during the process. One of the most common methods used is interior excavation waterproofing. During this process, contractors install new drainage systems or a sump pump in the basement to ensure that water is removed quickly and effectively. 

Another common basement waterproofing method involves the installation of an exterior waterproofing system. Contractors dig around the foundation of the building and install a new exterior drainage system, while also applying waterproofing materials to exterior surfaces of the foundation. While this process can be more time-consuming, it requires virtually no maintenance after installation and ensures that water won’t enter your basement.
