Basement Waterproofing Systems Installed for Homes in Atlanta, GA & Throughout the Surrounding Areas
Waterproofing your basement can be an extremely valuable investment. Basements that are not properly waterproofed are susceptible to water damage and flooding that can ruin belongings. For example, it’s not uncommon for homeowners to have finished basements with expensive electronics and valuable, one-of-a-kind keepsakes. These items can all be damaged, lost, or destroyed by flooding as a result of having a basement that is not equipped with a waterproofing system. To help homeowners avoid these problems – and others like them – Engineered Solutions proudly installs basement waterproofing systems throughout the Atlanta, Georgia, area.
Basement Waterproofing Systems from the Specialists at Engineered Solutions
We offer two types of basement waterproofing services – interior and exterior. While they perform essentially the same function, the two systems are slightly different:
Interior Basement Waterproofing Systems
Interior systems are often a remedial measure to correct improper basement drainage. With this system, we’ll open up a trench inside the basement, parallel to the area that is flooded or consistently damp. Then, we’ll install a drainage system that will effectively move water out of your basement and away from your home. We also often install sump pumps and dehumidifiers, as well as sealants, to help reduce moisture and prevent any future water issues in your basement.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Systems
Exterior systems are more of a preventative solution to ensure your basement never floods in the first place. During this process, we’ll start by excavating the soil surrounding your foundation until the footing is exposed. We’ll then clean the foundation wall and install a drainage system that reroutes water away from your home and foundation. Then, we’ll seal off the outside walls, preventing any chance for water to seep into your basement.
