In the Atlanta and Athens areas, basements come in every shape and size and are built in many different ways. And so wet basements and basement leaks also come in every shape and size. Your home was built to keep the water out, not to leak. So if water is coming in, then something needs to be fixed to keep it out. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for leaking basements here in Atlanta. That is why we custom craft each waterproofing solution for each house and each customer.

Why settle for water management when you can waterproof?


What are your options? There are really only two options available to solve wet basement problems: interior systems or exterior solutions. Interior systems use weeping holes in your walls and drainage inside your basement floor to manage the water that is entering and direct it to a sump pump. This method really should not be called waterproofing, and so we call it water management. Water management systems allow the water to come in, manage that water, and then pump it back out. True basement waterproofing is achieved  only by exterior excavation to the bottom of the foundation, installing proper drainage and treating the walls to prevent water from entering. Let the water in and pump it back out, or keep it out altogether. This is the main difference between waterproofing and water management.

Which method is best for your foundation? The consensus among experts outside of the waterproofing industry (structural engineers, local building department officials, building scientist, etc.) is that actual waterproofing is the best choice. So why are there so many companies in the waterproofing industry that propose water management? Because that is what they do, and it is all they do. Water management systems do have their place; however if moisture, cracks, mold, or foundation settlement is your situation, water management systems can actually make your problem worse.

How do I figure it all out? When assessing your situation, a real expert will take a problem-solving approach. An honest foundation expert will inspect your basement or crawl space in order to discover the real cause of your water problem. They do that so that they can offer a solution that fully customized for your needs. Because the solution he will present is the same for everyone, a system company salesman is not worried with the real cause of your water problem. You should be aware that a growing number of water management companies try to recommend some outside work, but it will not really be beneficial to you. They suggest things such as shallow outside drainage or excavation that they have little to no knowledge about.
