Exterior Water Prevention

Sometimes, the best way to prevent water infiltrating your home is resolving the issue from the outside so you are not relying on a basement waterproofing system. After removing the perimeter dirt around the exterior foundation wall, Quality Waterproofing's Exterior Water Prevention system includes thoroughly cleaning the foundation of all debris, and then evenly applying a sprayed on polymer modified asphalt waterproofing membrane to the concrete wall, forming a flexible, water-tight barrier hidden below the grade of your yard. Next, we install an integral exterior drain tile system that is covered in clean rock and connected to the sump bucket to pump the water outside and away from your home.

Downspout Extensions

Direct water away from your foundation with a simple installation. Directing roof water is the 1st line of defense to ensure you have a dry basement. We supply and install gutter downspout extensions to route water away from your foundation, preventing water infiltration into your basement.

French Drain

A French drainage system, which is essentially a trench containing a perforated pipe that is then filled with clean gravel, is used to help distribute excess water from yards and downspout extensions. Installing this prevents water from damaging your home’s foundation.

Yard Drainage

An additional way to help keep water away from the foundation is to improve the yard drainage. This will generally include some grading of the area around the house to make sure all land slopes away and will keep water draining away from the house and not down to the foundation.

We work with many of the area’s largest builders to provide high quality, efficient waterproofing services without impeding the construction process. Learn more about new construction waterproofing practices and materials.
