When Your Existing Water Control Methods Aren’t Enough

Heavy rains were bringing water into Lou’s basement, and he needed to do something about it.

Eco-Seal investigated at his home and found that several prevention methods – already in place – weren’t doing the trick. The house had an interior drainage system from when it was built, but it was not handling all the water. There was also a natural drain on the property, designed to draw water away from the home, but it was clogged and ineffective.

Our team dug up the wall where the worst of the water was coming in, built a new wall, and then performed an exterior waterproofing job. We also created a new natural drain and graded the land to move water away from pooling near the foundation.

Heavy rains have already occurred this spring and summer, and Lou’s basement is dry, thanks to the terrific work done by Eco-Seal.
