Are you faced with the question “Why is my basement Leaking”? Do you have water intrusion coming through the walls, foundation, or drains? There are companies out there promising to repair your leaky basement with indoor water control treatments. The cost appears to be reasonable but in actuality they are putting a band-aid on the situation and masking the water intrusion. This is actually called water control. That process still allows water to leak into your basement causing mold, mildew and deterioration of the foundation and block walls behind their fancy looking dry lock wall boards. MSA’s basement waterproofing methods, permanently stops your basement from leaking water from the outside into your basement. Our methods will permanently fix your basement while increasing the value of your home and making it a safer environment to live in.
Below is a brief summary of MSA’s real basement waterproofing solutions, the correct way and in most circumstances actually will cost less in the long run.
Step 1. We excavate all the dirt and clay soil from around the house, removing it off sight. This must be completed first because clay acts as a sponge and does not allow the water to get into the drain tile to flow away from the house. Clay also freezes and expands causing pressure on block walls creating cracks and movement which can cause water leakage and unstable foundations.
Step 2. We remove the old drain tile that is usually clogged or collapsed and replace it with new PVC style drain tile. We then Install cleanouts for maintenance of drain tile. This will insure that you will never have to go through this process again.
Step 3. We then coat the basement walls with mortar and iron-nite and apply a top coat of tar. The tar is used to repel moisture.
Step 4.We then fill the entire ditch around the wall with washed gravel. This allows water to flow into the drain tile with no resistance and the washed gravel acts as a cushion around the foundation through the freeze and thaw cycles.
Step 5. All area that have been excavated are then restored areas back into its original form. All grass, concrete, and flower beds will be fixed to original place.
