Foundation Waterproofing is a broad term that describes the range of services provided to repair a wet basement. We often get questions like “How much does it cost for a basement to waterproof a basement?” It’s the equivalent of taking your vehicle to a dealership and saying, “How much is it going to cost to fix my car?” Generally, the answer is, “It depends on what you need.”
Identifying the source of the leak in a wet basement is the first step in foundation waterproofing. Usually, this can be done by consulting the homeowner to determine how, when, and where the problem occurs.
A good portion of our wet basement solutions involves sealing foundation wall cracks in poured concrete foundations (poured concrete is the most common type of basement in the greater Seattle area). Using our Epoxy / Urethane injection process, holes can be closed from the inside or from the outside using our Wall-Clay process. Both approaches are very effective in preventing any leakage through the hole and into the basement.
Another typical basement waterproofing issue is when the origin of leakage is in the cove joint, where the floor and wall touch. This is often caused by hydrostatic pressure, which occurs following heavy rain or snow melting causing the water table to rise. A drain tile relieves hydrostatic pressure by giving the water an easy path to escape, thereby eliminating water pressure. The problem can be tackled either from the inside or from the outside.
In their years of research, Seattle Foundation Repair has developed long-term and practical solutions for your wet basement troubles. We took conventional waterproofing concepts to come up with innovative and practical solutions in combination with new ones.
There are many other ways in which water can also enter a basement. The key to waterproofing your wet basement is to diagnose the source of the problem properly.
