Basement Waterproofing Service
Upkeep is essential if you have a basement, and you always need to be aware of the structure. The basement is your building's foundation and needs to remain safe and sound. Elite Foundation Repair St. Louis is here to provide you with all your foundation repair needs.
Negative Side Basement Waterproofing
Elite Foundation Repair St. Louis applies a coating on the dry interior side of the basement wall or foundation to prevent water from entering the living space. It is a preferred basement waterproofing method as the exterior is the foundation's positive side.
It is surrounded by soil and water, making it difficult to repair from the outside as it needs excavation to enable us to do this. The materials our expert team uses can withstand hydrostatic pressure. Hence, we use cementitious coatings, epoxy injections, or hydraulic cement to seal cracks in the basement wall.
The best part after doing the basement waterproofing, the area is accessible and might only need future touch-ups, easily repaired.
Drain Tiles & Interior Sump Pump
If you frequently find water in the basement or see water puddles and have seasonal flooding, it helps to install drain tiles or a sump pump. The French tile is a porous or perforated pipe buried down into gravel alongside the foundation footing of the building.
The drain tiles help direct water away from the building foundation to prevent it from seeping into the basement through cracks. In addition, a drain or sump system helps keep crawl spaces dry and prevents mildew and mold growth.
These pipes can connect with the sump pump to help discharge the water away from the building.
