What is Foundation Waterproofing?

Foundation waterproofing is a process that protects your home from water seeping through to your crawlspace or basement, which can become a breeding ground for pests or mold.  It can also prevent your foundation from cracking and causing further structural damage. 

Why Foundation Waterproofing is Important

There are several benefits to waterproofing your foundation:

  • Prevent Water Damage: Water weakens the foundation when continuous exposure to moisture deteriorates materials like wood and concrete.
  • Avoid Mold, Mildew, & Pests: Moist environments are breeding grounds for mold growth and pests like termites, which can cause health issues and costly repairs.
  • Create More Energy Efficiency: A dry, water-tight foundation protects the quality of insulation, helping to maintain a consistent temperature, and also preventing moisture from affecting interior systems.
  • Increase Property Value: Waterproofing is a sign of a well-maintained home, which is attractive to potential buyers. 

Methods for Waterproofing the Foundation

There are two approaches to waterproofing the foundation of your home: exterior and interior. 

Exterior Foundation Waterproofing

  • Membranes: Applying waterproof membranes, like Rub-R-Wall, to the exterior of the foundation to block water entry.
  • Drainage Systems: Installing exterior drainage systems like French drains to redirect water away from the foundation.
  • Moisture Barriers: Using sealants and coatings on the foundation walls to create a waterproof barrier.

Interior Foundation Waterproofing

  • Sealants: Applying waterproof sealants to the interior walls and floors.
  • Drainage Systems: Installing interior drainage systems, such as sump pumps, to manage water that infiltrates the foundation.

What Our Customers Say

Sharon P, Waterproofing & Repair

We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
