Basement Waterproofing System
Water can be a home’s worst enemy if it leaks through foundation cracks or from a poor drainage system. The results can seriously compromise the structural integrity and foundation of the house, leading to costly repairs and possibly permanent damage to your home.
PermaJack Louisville’s basement waterproofing system prevents water leakage through the foundation. The installation of the system protects the foundation and may even extend the life of your home.
When inadequate or non-existing waterproofing allows water to seep inside your basement, the area may become a breeding ground for black mold growth that can release mold spores into the air. When your family breathes this contaminated air, they may experience respiratory problems, flu-like symptoms, headaches, fever, and other health issues.
Basements are often a family’s recreational area and may serve as a storage space for books, heirlooms, and other items. All of those belongings possibly could be destroyed by water leaking into the basement, leading to the loss of thousands of dollars. In addition to the monetary loss, some of those items have profound personal meaning to the family and cannot be replaced for any amount of money.
If you suspect or notice moisture or standing water in your basement, PermaJack Louisville will send one of our trained and certified waterproofing contractors to inspect your home, diagnose the problem, and offer customized solutions.
Multi-Flow Drain Tile
Our waterproofing company in Louisville uses Multi-Flow Drain Tile engineering to ensure better flow and maintain the ideal flow rate. It’s essential to maintain a slow, steady flow to ensure soil stability and protect the foundation footer, which is the primary support for your foundation.
Our basement waterproofing system doesn’t use the same system as other waterproofing companies. They often use four-inch perforated drain tiles or PVC pipe that draws in fine soil and washes it out through your sump pump system. During heavy rain or snow, most homes find their four-inch drain tiles are half filled with water. Without proper grading, the water won’t flow correctly.
This process removes soil from around the footer of your home, impacting stability, and can reduce the lifespan of your sump pump. Your sump pump has to work harder to evacuate the soil-laden water. If the drain tile system is installed at an angle, the water flow increases, washing away more soil.
Whether you request crawl space waterproofing or basement waterproofing from our Louisville waterproofing company, you can rest assured we’ll install Multi-Flow Drain Tile around the perimeter of your footer on a level plain. This process provides several positive effects. Water flows through the system in five, slow, steady stages. If you have a more severe water table, we can add more tables to your basement waterproofing system.
Staging your basement waterproofing in this manner ensures a slow, steady flow rate, keeping the water table below the slab. With a reduced water table and keeping more soil around your footer, you reduce your risk of slab cracks often caused by hydrostatic pressure.
