Exterior Waterproofing

Protect your home from water damage by installing an exterior waterproofing system by Pro Foundation Technology, Inc. The system we have chosen is made by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the highest quality of waterproofing systems made in the industry today. Stopping water from collecting around the foundation is an important part of basement waterproofing. Water is transferred from the outside of a building to the interior because water takes the path of least resistance. If water enters the basement, then that is where it will flow. Another way water enters from the outside is capillary action. Concrete is a porous material. As concrete sets in water, the water is absorbed until it becomes completely saturated then disperses moisture inside of the home.

  5. ECP sump basin
  6. Combination primary/back-up sump pump

The waterproofing membrane combines the durability of asphalt with the elasticity of rubber to provide a long-lasting barrier against water leaks. It is applied by a roller or spray to a foundation to stop water from entering.
The dimple drainage board is a drainage application prefabricated that consists of a solid, formed, three-dimensional core covered with a geotextile filter fabric bonded to the dimple side of the core.

The 4” perforated drain pipe is installed beneath the foundation and drains the water away from the foundation. This drainpipe has a superior crush resistance and exceptional water volume capacity while conforming to building codes for both commercial and residential applications.

Keeping water from entering your basement through an exterior drainage system will help prevent any future water problems in your basement. Water can cause several health issues if left unattended. Mold and mildew can form causing respiratory problems, sinus congestion, eye irritation, throat irritation, skin irritation, and nervous system problems.
