Basement Waterproofing Wheaton
Wheaton property owners know that with Illinois weather during all of our beautiful seasons in the midwest, that basement waterproofing is an essential part of owning property. There are a few different types of basement waterproofing approaches that vary in price as well as abrasiveness to the property itself.
The key areas to assess your need for basement waterproofing improvements in Wheaton are:
- Window Wells
- Mortar Joints
- Interior Wall Floors
- Around the Floor Drain
- At the top of the Foundation Wall
- Around a Sump Pump
- Along any Bowed Walls
As a Wheaton property owner, you can waterproof the basement and foundation from the outside. The ground around the foundation will need to be dug up in some cases. The purpose of basement waterproofing is to stop water and moisture before it gets in.
If it happens to be a colder season in Wheaton, basement waterproofing can start on the interior with the coating of the walls with a waterproof seal for cracks and any porous concrete that water can seep thru easily. Additional basement waterproofing techniques include installing an interior drain tile along the interior walls of the foundation to direct moisture and water down and out away from the property. Another basement waterproofing step is any access points in the foundation such as window wells and drainage pipe inlets should be waterproofed and sealed properly.
