The Best Options for Waterproofing Your Basement
You might have considered waterproofing if you experience consistent problems with moisture accumulation in your basement. But although basement waterproofing is an effective way to protect your basement, foundation, and the rest of your home, there isn’t just one way to do it. Here are some of the best waterproofing options that you have to choose.
Adding a drain to collect excess water is a great way to keep your basement dry. Typically contractors install the drain by drilling a hole into the foundation. You could also consider the option of adding a sump pump with this method to further remove water from your home. Additionally, you should also have a vapor barrier installed to protect your basement from condensation.
Sealant is a bit of a controversial method because some contractors believe that it is only a temporary solution. But using the right type of sealant will assure that it stays in place. Concrete-based sealant tends to work the best because it can adhere to the concrete already in the basement. Sealant is a great way to prevent leaks in your basement.
While an epoxy injection is effective, many waterproofing contractors consider it only a temporary fix depending on the severity of the issue. The purpose of epoxy injections is to fix cracks in walls and the home foundation. A quality epoxy injection will fill and repair cracks while reinforcing them. But before using epoxy, you should have an inspection to make sure that the cracks are the warning signs of a bigger problem.
