From the Inside: Waterproofing Your Basement in Atlanta, Georgia and Beyond
To clean up after leaks and flooding and to prevent future water damage, we often work from the inside. Waterproofing a basement from the interior consists of opening a trench inside the actual basement, parallel to the affected area. A drainage system is then placed within the trench to route gathered water through the drain to an exit, which is outside of the basement. The trench is sealed with concrete, and your basement is guaranteed to be dry.
Often the first step toward a functional basement waterproofing system, this will redirect water out of your home once it has made its way inside. It is relatively inexpensive compared to some other basement waterproofing techniques, such as exterior basement waterproofing.
Internal sealants are also used to prevent further water seepage and damage. While they cannot prevent flooding in any permanent sense, they can close up cracks in walls, ceilings, and floors where water gets through to the inside. Waterproofing your basement is made easier when using a method like this, which is insurance against flooding when combined with one of our other methods, such as external waterproofing and inside waterproofing of your basement.
Waterproofing is an investment for your home and your future. Be sure that you maintain the waterproofing after it’s done, and frequently check drainage for obstructions. Your house will be better protected than you ever imagined it could be.
