A. Yes; 97% of our work involves existing structures with residential homes being the most common.
A. No, the whole basement does not need to be excavated. We recommend 8 feet beyond the walls laterally.
A. It depends on the job. We offer free estimates for most jobs. See our services comparison page for a better idea of how much things will cost.
A. Our team of experienced installers will work around any obstacle where the waterproofing system has to be installed. In this short video, Kevin shows an example of what is sometimes encountered in a basement. Pipes, wires, and other structures are typically never a problem for us to work around.
A. Drain Tile is the method of waterproofing a basement by way of removing a portion of concrete along the parameter of the basement, installing drainage pipe and a sump pump, then pouring concrete over top. The end result is structurally and geometrically the same as a normal basement. Baseboard waterproofing is installed when there is only water coming through the walls and does not require removal of any concrete. The finished result is visible drainage trim that is three inches wide.
A. The Legendary UG-18 Drain Tile waterproofing system is installed for less-extensive water leakage issues (typically for repairing water leaks coming through the walls). It requires approximately 18" of concrete removal. Watch Kevin explain the Legendary UG-18 Drain Tile system (video).
The Legendary UG-24 Drain Tile waterproofing system is installed in cases where water is coming up through the floor, through the walls, or both. The hydrostatic pressure of the water underneath the concrete floor requires the installation of a wider, more robust system to mitigate the water problem. It requires approximately 24" of concrete removal. Also, the warranty is longer on the UG-24 Drain Tile system.
A. Yes, most of the time. Request an estimate.
A. Typical basement waterproofing jobs take around 2-4 days. See our services comparison page for a better idea of how long drain tile installation, baseboard waterproofing, or sump pump installation takes.
A. Our most common water damage repair process is under floor drainage systems (drain tile installations).
A. We can remove an old basement floor and pour a completely new, level one.
