Products for Basement Waterproofing
Wet basement waterproofing products have really come a long way! There are many different products and solutions to choose from when you have decided it is time to waterproof your home’s basement. Crack injections, french drains, sump pumps, just to name a few, are some solutions in battling your wet basement.
Many waterproofing products that specialized contractors offer, normally come with a lifetime guarantee. This means that the area of the basement that was waterproofed, if you ever have an issue in that part again with water, the contractor will come back out and fix it for free. Please note that sump pumps generally have a one year guarantee.
Popular wet basement waterproofing products include the following:
- Crack injections
- Sump pumps
Basements that have cracks in the foundation that has water coming through them can be repaired using crack injections. Crack injections can come in polyurethane, or epoxy. Polyurethane is flexible. It forms a barrier that water cannot penetrate, however, it does not add any structural strength. Epoxy can add strength to the foundation, and also stop water from seeping through the cracks and crevices.
Sump pumps are also great when it comes to keeping your basement dry. You can also chose how much protection you want when you install one. When I say protection, I mean there are different types of sump pumps you can go with.
- Sump pump
- Ultrasump with a backup sump pump
Ultra sump pumps have a primary pump and a secondary pump all in one. If the primary pump fails to operate, or cannot handle all the water flowing into it, the secondary takes over or assists the primary pump in pumping the water out of your home.
- Triple Safe Sump pump system
This is the Ultrasump system, but with this, there is also a battery back-up with this pump, in case power goes out in your home.
Waterproofed paneling is a way to go if experiencing water seepage through foundation walls. The paneling not only waterproofs your home, it also improves the appearance of the basement and brightens the rooms up!
