Coming home to find your basement submerged in water after a big storm is never something you want see. Unfortunately however, this does happen, and it is better to fix the problem sooner rather than later.
With Green Side Up, we offer basement waterproofing services of all kinds around the Main Line, Philadelphia and Montgomery, Berks, Bucks, and Chester County areas. We understand that basement waterproofing isn’t always a one size fits all solution, and that’s why we employ a series of different methods to ensure that the problem will never happen again. At Green Side Up, we specialize in both interior and exterior waterproofing, and even have methods in place to prevent flood damage from happening in the first place.
Our interior waterproofing services are the most common. They involve dealing with the water after it’s already entered the basement. With interior waterproofing, we focus on the pressure of the ground water that’s forcing its way through the basement walls and foundation. We have found that it’s most effective to drill through the concrete floors to install a new drainage system that is able to direct the water in a new direction and out to a sump pump system.
While interior waterproofing involves dealing with the water after it’s already in the basement, exterior excavation waterproofing is a service performed to prevent flood damage from happening entirely. Exterior waterproofing involves excavating 6-8 feet down in the foundation. Once we’re at the appropriate level, we apply waterproof material to the exterior walls that helps in directing any water that may enter, into a drainage system in order to make sure the water doesn’t infiltrate.
