Basement Waterproofing Scientists are Basement Waterproofing Specialists in PA, NJ, and DE and offer free in-depth inspections to homeowners in the Philadelphia suburbs and surrounding areas. Contact Us During these inspections, the inspectors evaluate the basement using the latest scanning technology. This helps the inspector identify the source of the basement leaks. With this information, we can identify the best method for permanently waterproofing the basement and directing water away from the home.

Methods

Some Waterproofing methods we use to keep your basement dry include:

Interior Drainage Systems

Interior Drainage Systems are one of the most effective ways to keep water away from the interior of a basement. These systems are installed along the inside perimeter of the basement walls and are designed to collect water that seeps in through the walls and floor moving water away from the interior. The water is then directed to a sump pump, which removes it from the basement.

The design and size of interior basement systems (or french drains) is based on the cause of the leak and the size of the affected area. The goal of basement waterproofing is to make sure that the pathways for water to enter the basement area are closed.

After your free estimate, the entire process may only take 1-3 days to install basement systems and get your basement totally dry. Keeping water out also prevents structural damage. Mold removal will also keep the space healthy.

Waterproof coatings

Waterproof coatings are also a popular option for basement waterproofing. These coatings are applied to the walls and floor of the basement and provide an extra layer of protection against water infiltration. They are particularly effective in older homes that may have porous walls and floors.

These kinds of applications do not keep water away from the foundation, but they may prevent penetration into the living area. The total cost of these kinds of solutions is generally less than more invasive solutions.

Hydraulic cement can also be used to stop many different types of small leaks. This kind of application can keep water from penetrating small cracks or penetrations.

Sump Pumps

Professional installation of sump pumps are another essential component of any basement waterproofing drainage system. These pumps are designed to absorb water from the basement and prevent flooding.

Basement Waterproofing Scientists offers a range of sump pump options for Philadelphia homeowners, including battery backup systems that can continue to operate in the event of a power outage. Sump pumps can not only help keep a wet basement dry, but can also be used in crawl space encapsulation and crawl space repair.
