Basement Waterproofing

Exterior Hydrostatic Pressure is a condition that results in water seeping through cracks within basement foundation walls and those between the walls and floors.  This dampness and/or flooding within your basement results in an unhealthy environment with mold, mildew and deteriorated or damaged wall framing, drywall and flooring within finished spaces.

To alleviate the problem, American Basements & Crawlspaces often recommends a Basement Breakout , one of our basement waterproofing techniques used to trap the influx of water from the interior.  This involves “breaking out” concrete flooring and trenching 12-15″ along the perimeter walls, installing perforated drain tile PVC piping and applying PVC drain board up on the foundation walls.  The drain tile and drain board is re-encapsulated in concrete, trapping any water intrusion and routing through an existing or new sump pit and sump pump.
