Foundation waterproofing can be approached in several different ways depending on the nature of the problem. Leaks are most likely to occur below ground where hydrostatic pressure against the foundation of the home causes water to seep through the foundation walls and into the basement. This is particularly common in the Atlanta, GA, area where our soft alluvial soil combined with our high volume of annual precipitation can cause the ground to become heavily saturated. If the soil can’t absorb more water, pressure builds against the home’s foundation, which leads to leaks. Additionally, high levels of saturation can also prompt the soil beneath the home to wash away, causing potentially disastrous resettling.
To provide you with peace of mind that your basement will remain dry despite the weather, Engineered Solutions of Georgia provides two primary foundation waterproofing services:
- Interior waterproofing, which is used to collect water as it seeps through the foundation and re-route it away from the home.
- Exterior waterproofing, which entails the installation of an exterior drainage system to prevent water from entering the home in the first place.
Additionally, if your home is at risk for leaking due to an issue with the foundation itself, our foundation waterproofing and repair team will be able to assist. We’ll inspect the problem, develop a comprehensive repair plan, and handle the project on time and on budget.
