Basement Waterproofing Atlanta GA

Basement waterproofing Atlanta GA is our specialty. You will find many articles and theories on how basement waterproofing can be done. Depending on your basement space, layout, your budget, and if you’re looking for a permanent fix or a temporary fix, there’s a few options to choose from.

The two most popular options are the exterior waterproofing and interior below slab drainage system. One of the least popular options is the above slab drainage system.

Interior Basement Waterproofing

Here you see our The Waterproof Group below slab drainage system, which is installed along the footing. The concrete that was removed, has been replaced. Now, water will drain directly into the drainage system and never enter the property.

The sump pump, pumps water from the drainage system and pumps it away from the property. This completely removes any and all water from the system.

Exterior Basement Waterproofing

Here you can see the The Waterproof Group crew working on an exterior basement waterproofing system. In many instances, a large machine is needed to dig down to the footing due to the depth of the basement. We then apply a rubberized asphalt emulsion to the foundation walls after repairing any foundation cracks. A porous drainage matting is applied, and we install a French drain at the footing. The new system prevents hydraulic pressure from allowing water to through.

Interior Basement Waterproofing

Here you see the least popular option; the above slab drainage system. In instances where there is no footing and a below slab drainage system cannot be used and / or an exterior system is too costly, the last option is the above slab system.

This system functions like the below slab system. It collects any water coming into the property, drains it into a sump pump, which pumps it out of the property. This system is the least popular because it is visible; however, it can be placed behind walls if you are finishing a basement.
