Basement Waterproofing

Do you have leaky basement walls? The issue of our times is a changing climate, and the impact that has on all of our lives. As the air becomes warmer, and temperatures rise up, that means a more intense water cycle, with more moisture evaporating into the atmosphere. That leads to changes in rainfall patterns, and more storms. Downpours are more intense. There is more snow, which melts more rapidly. With an increase in precipitation comes an increased risk of flooding. If you own or rent a house, with a basement, you know what we are talking about. The home’s foundation drainage system is interconnected and complicated, just like french drain, it includes the city’s sanitary sewer lateral, perhaps a storm service lateral (in newer homes), a weeping tile system that channels water away from the foundation, drain pipes. Any failure there leaves the home exposed to flooding.
