Basement Waterproofing Services in York
Our basement waterproofing services include first of all an inspection to find out how the water is getting in and how it can be stopped. If the water intrusion is related to a structural problem, we repair it. After that, we install a new drainage system that will ensure your basement stays dry.
Our basement waterproofing solutions in York, NE, Hall County Include:
Interior Basement Waterproofing and Drainage Systems
Sump Pump installation – A sump pump collects water and then pumps it out of your basement.
Drain tile – Drain tile consists of pipes buried under your foundation that collect water and channel it to the sump pit.
Vapor barriers – Vapor barriers are used to keep the dampness out. They’re usually plastic and they’re able to stop moisture from coming in through a foundation wall.
Egress windows – Egress windows work well to stop water from pooling near windows. They also provide a safe way to exit a basement in case there’s an emergency. Many of our customers install egress windows instead of waterproofing their existing windows.
Basement crack repair – Basement wall cracks can be repaired using an epoxy or a polyurethane substance. However, if the cracks were caused by major structural issues, epoxy crack injection will not work.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing and Drainage Systems
Yard drainage – A curtain drain’s job is to take water uphill from your home and channel it away from the foundation. This prevents the type of leaks that are caused by water pooling near the foundation.
Exterior waterproofing membrane – This is applied to the outside of the foundation wall and stops water from coming into contact with it.
Exterior foundation drain (or a perimeter drain) – This is a perforated PVC pipe that allows water to enter so that it can be channeled away from the house.
Window well drainage – If water builds up in your window well, it will find a way to get inside your basement. Therefore, good drainage in the window well is essential.
Downspout extensions – Sometimes, downspouts are too short and dump water near the foundation. Extensions channel it further away from your home.
Underground downspout and sump pump discharge extensions – These channel water away from your foundation and into something called a bubbler pot. After pressure builds in the pot, the lid opens, and the water is evenly distributed across your yard.
