Our basement waterproofing solutions in North Platte, NE, Lincoln County Include:
Interior Basement Waterproofing and Drainage Systems
Sump Pump – A sump pump collects water and then pumps it out of your basement and away from your home.
Drain tile – Drain tile sits under the basement floor. It’s job is to collect water and carry it to the sump pit.
Vapor barrier – Any material used for damp proofing can be called a vapor barrier. One example might be a polyethylene (plastic) sheet that’s able to resist moisture diffusion through a wall.
Egress windows – Not only do egress windows offer a safe way to escape a basement in case of an emergency, they also allow water to safely disperse. Many homeowners install one or more new egress windows during a basement waterproofing project.
Basement crack repair – Cracks in a basement wall can be fixed using either an epoxy or a polyurethane substance. This will prevent further water intrusion. Epoxy crack injection is not a repair solution for major structural damage though.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing and Drainage Systems
Yard drainage – When water is channeled away from your home it can’t pool near your foundation and eventually make its way into your basement.
Exterior waterproofing membrane – This is applied to the exterior of your foundation wall and works to prevent moisture from entering the basement.
Exterior foundation drain (or a perimeter drain) – This is a perforated PVC pipe that works to channel water away from your home.
Window well drainage – Window wells work to prevent water from accumulating in your window well. A drain, installed in the window well, ties into an interior drain tile, which leads to the sump pit.
Downspout extensions – Sometimes a downspout dumps water too close to your foundation. An extension can be used to channel the water further away from your home.
Underground downspout and sump pump discharge extensions – These carry water away from your foundation and into a bubbler pot. When pressure builds in the bubbler pot, the lid opens, and distributes the water evenly across the yard.
