Local Basement Waterproofing Bradford
‘Last updated: February 8, 2017‘ Basement waterproofing Bradford is an important preventative service that should be considered if you have not done so for your home already. Interior and exterior basement waterproofing are a couple of options which both do a great job of keeping your home safe from water damage and flooding. Exterior basement waterproofing is more extensive as it requires digging up the soil around the foundation of your home but it is perhaps more certain in terms of having a full proof solution to water damage. Interior basement waterproofing is a solid option though and will do a good job of keeping your home safe and dry. It is also considerably less in terms of cost.
Weak Foundation or Cracks in The Walls
Water leaking into your home through the foundation is never a good thing. Most basements are below ground level and the moisture that builds up in the soil can weaken the walls of the house foundation. The cracks caused by the hydrostatic pressure of the moisture in the soil pose a real threat as the leaking damages your basement floors and walls. It can lead to basement flooding, water damage, and mold damage. All of which are a difficult challenge to repair and recover your property and belongings from. Be confident that when you call our local plumbing and waterproofing experts we will provide basement waterproofing Bradford that keeps your home dry.
Plugged Weeping Tiles
Besides basement waterproofing Bradford you can take a number of other steps to keep your home safe and dry. Should your foundation’s weeping tiles become plugged and end up moving water in the wrong direction back into your home caused by leaks that occur by the pressure this causes, this can be damaging. What happens is that the PVC pipe which makes up your exterior drainage system around the foundation of your home can become blocked by soil or tree roots and force the water that would usually leave away from the house or into a sump pump, to move back into the house. Our plumber will inspect your plumbing system to ensure your household is kept safe and dry.
Leaky Windows and Blocked Drainage Tiles in Window Wells
Windows that are leaky are another main cause of water damage in your basement. Our basement waterproofing Bradford will include sealing the windows in your basement to make certain they never leak or seep moisture which can damage your floors, walls, ceilings, and belongings. Frames around windows weaken over time and any rainwater or melting snow water that seeps through can cause not only water damage but mold damage as well. When you call our local plumbing team for help ensuring your home is safe from water damage, mold damage, and flooding we will do a very thorough job. You can count on our more than twenty-five years of experience providing this service locally.
Mold is another cause for concern besides water damage and flooding. It is one of the main causes of health issues in the home. Although there are some relatively harmless types of mold such as penicillium, Alternaria, Cladosporium, or aspergillus, there are harmful types as well such as Stachybotrys which can aggravate existing health conditions as well as cause illness to anyone who comes in contact with it. Mold grows wherever there is moisture. Don’t let it ever become an issue by having our basement waterproofing Bradford. Rest assured, we will be available to help you prevent any of these or similar types of water-based problems to your home.
Bradford Basement Waterproofing. The best way to prevent mold from entering your basement is to prevent moisture from getting in is with basement waterproofing Bradford. Here is how we prevent moisture from entering your basement.
1. Every exterior basement waterproofing job starts with first excavating down to the footing of the basement. The depth will obviously range but we typically excavate out 2-2.5 feet from the wall.
2. We dig out the old weeping tile and replace it with new 4″ weeping tile with filter cloth.
3. Next step is to clean the foundation walls searching for cracks, voids, and any other defects, chisel them out and fill with hydraulic cement which expands to completely fill the void.
4. From the grading down to the footing, we apply a rubbery membrane which is the most critical component in preventing water from breaching your foundation walls.
5. On top of that layer, we apply a dimpled drainage board which will be up against the soil. The dimples create little air gaps so that any water that gets through, drains directly down into the weeping tile.
6. Now that the waterproofing membrane is installed, we install a layer of 3/4″ gravel on top of the weeping tile and then do a water test to ensure the drainage is working properly.
7. We then backfill the excavated hole we made with the same soil we took out, compact it with a tamper to the original level, and clean up the area so it looks like we were never there!
