Basement moisture infiltration is a very common problem that can be easily corrected with the right method. Dryshield works with only the best materials in our services and up-to-date waterproofing and water control methods to deliver our finest work.
Basement waterproofing is smart investment for homeowners to invest into their home. It can turn an unappealing, damp basement into a dry, inviting space for your family. Dryshield specializes in installing interior waterproofing drainage systems designed to completely address foundation seepage issues. The object is to remove existing moisture and install a waterproofed barrier around the inside walls. Then a series of weeping tiles are built to create drains that divert accumulated water from inside your basement. A layer of concrete from the basement floor then needs to be removed in order to create a trench along the foundation. Gravel is then laid in the trench, along with internal weeping tiles that improve drainage and send water to newly installed sump pump. Once the trench is created, damp-proof wallboard is fastened to the foundation to provide a watertight seal that extracts moisture from the wall and air, while directing condensation into the new drainage system. Once that is completed, concrete is poured over the trench to create the final waterproof layer. The floor can then be relayed and you can start enjoying your new dry basement.
This waterproofing system minimizes hydrostatic pressure and ensures that water stays in drains below the footing, which helps the floor and walls stay dry. As an added benefit, our services come with a 25-year transferable warranty that covers your home even if you decide to sell
