There are several options for basement waterproofing repair in Denver, Colorado and Colorado Springs, Colorado. It’s important to understand how and why basements can be prone to leaking so you can understand the best repair solution to ensure your basement stays permanently dry!
How and Where Do Basements Leak?
This option requires exterior excavation to install a drain tile next to the footer. This drain can clog, which would force the water to find its way into your home. This exterior excavation will also disturb any exterior landscaping or hardscape. Re-disturbing this fill soil can also cause foundation or structural issues for the home. This option is also the most expensive.
This waterproofing option involves installing an interior footing drain below the basement floor slab. This solution does not provide any access for inspecting the drain or a way to clean it out if it becomes clogged. If the drain clogs, water will still enter your basement!
With this waterproofing option, the concrete slab floor is scarified and epoxy is used to attach the AquaStop™ Safe Track to the concrete. The epoxy will take some maintenance and patching over time to ensure it’s viability. The above floor can become damaged and difficult to finish around. This adhesive will detach over time, which will allow water to leak in. It also does not lower the water table below the home, so water could still enter from beneath.
This option is a common solution in the market. Though it drains water from the walls, it does not capture water next to the footer or lower the water table. This may cause efflorescence due to water seepage and this system often minimizes the water flow to the sump pump.
