If you have a stone foundation that leaks, it's surely causing you a lot of headaches. Typically, this type of foundation is found in older homes in the area. The materials were once very strong, stable, and secure. However, as time passes, the rocks can become brittle, weak, and they may allow water to seep into the basement of your home. As a homeowner, whenever you go into your basement and see that there are puddles all over the floor, or you have water stains on the floor, you might not know what to do and you may panic thinking that the only solution to the problem is to get total foundation replacement. Fortunately, there have been many advancements over the years in the repair industry, and our team will be able to provide you with effective and affordable basement waterproofing systems that will be able to put a stop to the seepage under your home.
SafeBasements™ Waterproofing System
We can install SafeBasements™ waterproofing systems to take care of this dangerous moisture under your home. We feel as if the systems and products we install are some of the very best on the market. Take a look below to get an overview about what we can install:
1. Safe Edge™ - This is our most commonly installed system. It features a wide profile design which makes it easy to collect a lot of water and direct it off into a sump pump. The system features a multi-flow drainage system that is quickly installed. It also features a rubber seal that diverts water away from the cove area and into the drain system so it can be sent out and away from your home through the sump pump system.
2. Safe Drain™ - This waterproofing system will remove water and reduce hydrostatic pressure around your home. This means that if you have a home in clay-rich soil, it will be able to prevent the swollen soil after a rain fall from exerting so much pressure on your foundation walls. This is often what causes the masonry foundation to become weak and let water seep inside.
3. Safe Track™ - This system can be installed without any excavation in or around your home. It is perfect for monolithic floors and it is specially-designed to provide a simple, non-invasive solution to water getting into a home through a masonry foundation. It also features a patented rubber seal that ensures that water is drained away into the sump pump where it belongs, and it will also prevent harmful soil gasses from entering your home - such as Radon.
