Some of the symptoms of foundation damage include: misaligned exterior doors, garage doors and windows, noticeable cracks in brick, stone or the foundation itself, interior doors that get stuck or no longer fit properly in their jambs
That is why foundation waterproofing is important. It is applied to the exterior side of a foundation, most often during construction of the building. Waterproofing forms a barrier that stops water from entering into the interior of a basement.
The benefits of foundation waterproofing
Foundation waterproofing has many benefits but it primarily can do these two things:
It prevents water under hydrostatic pressure, the force that ground water in the soil exerts against the foundation wall. It is possible for this pressure to actually force water and water vapor through a foundation wall. The more water that is in the soil the greater the hydrostatic pressure will be. Also, the deeper the foundation, the greater the hydrostatic pressure.
It also helps to span cracks in a foundation: Shrinkage cracks develop in foundations as the concrete cures. This is a natural process that occurs in all foundations. Therefore, foundation waterproofing spans these cracks to maintain an impermeable membrane against the water
At DryShield, we can install a variety of waterproofing products, including sump pumps and drain systems, to help with keeping this area underneath your home dry, safe, and healthy.
Over time your home’s foundation settles, shifts or fails little by little leaving the potential for the problem to worsen before it becomes noticeable.
