In any building, the basement is the area where water damage is most likely to occur. Because the basement sits below grade, it is especially vulnerable to leaks or flooding. Whether it is groundwater, rain runoff, or a hurricane, the basement is the area homeowners tend to be most concerned about. Basement waterproofing can provide greater peace of mind for property owners. There are several ways to ensure your basement is protected from leaks, flooding, and moisture. Our foundation experts at Shreveport Foundation Repair can discuss the best ways to avoid damage to your basement, as well as the foundation of your house/home and provide you with a solution that is appropriate for your needs.
One way to protect your basement from water damage is to install a waterproof material around the foundation of your home. This membrane helps to keep water from eroding or seeping into your foundation over the years. Waterproofing can be carried out on existing foundation, so there is no need to replace the foundation of your home. Our foundation repair specialists will tunnel around your home or building to expose the foundation, then carefully install the material around the exterior side of it. It is a simple and straightforward process that can go a long way towards helping you avoid future hassles and foundation damage.
In addition to waterproofing the foundation of your home, it can help tremendously to prevent water from pooling around the base of the structure in the first place. Most homes or buildings are constructed and positioned in a way that ensures water flows away from the base. However, the land can change over time and problems can and do occasionally occur with the drainage of water on your property. Proper drainage can help to further waterproof your basement and prevent settling problems and other structural damage. Shreveport can repair or install draining around your foundation, as well as help you identify any issues with the drainage on your property.
