A Whole-House Approach to Basement Waterproofing
While there are many interior reasons that your basement might leak, not all are directly related to the home’s structure itself. How well your yard and concrete areas are graded will also contribute to how much water enters your basement.
At Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions, we take a “whole house” approach to waterproofing, making sure to consider all the usual — and not so usual — suspects. Isolating and treating the right problem the first time can save you time and money.
Correcting a Poorly Graded Yard
Ideally, your home should sit on the highest point on the property, with the yard surrounding the house sloping downward to facilitate drainage. When it rains, this downhill slope prevents water from collecting around the foundation, where it can cause foundation cracks or basement flooding issues.
Similarly, soil around your home can sometimes settle, especially if your home was built recently. This creates improper grading alongside its walls. At Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions, we can level your yard to ensure a dry basement and strong foundation.
Correcting a Poorly Graded Driveway or Patio
Concrete leveling, also known as mudjacking, is a process of raising settled concrete slabs by hydraulically pumping a grout mixture, typically an aggregate material with cement, under the slab of concrete. When the mixture is pumped beneath the settled concrete, it creates pressure on the slab and lifts it upwards.
Mudjacking is a very quick, cost-effective process. We’ll ensure that your hardscaping is smooth and trip-free, and that your basement waterproofing needs are met.
