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.
There are two options available for waterproofing your basement – interior and exterior. At Dritek Foundation Solutions, we offer both options because we don’t want you to settle! We believe you should know all your options and the pros and cons of each. Then you can decide what solution is best for you.
Interior waterproofing involves drilling weeping holes in your walls and installing drainage inside your basement floor to manage the water that is entering. The water is then directed to a sump pump. This method manages the water that comes in, channels that water, and then pumps it back outside. To learn more about the pros and cons, visit our interior waterproofing page.
Exterior waterproofing involves excavation to the bottom of the foundation, installing proper drainage and treating the walls to prevent water from entering. This method prevents the water from entering your foundation to begin with. To learn more about the pros and cons, visit our exterior waterproofing page.
You may also be having an issue that requires foundation repair, and we can help you with that as well. Don’t settle – call us today – you’ll be glad you did!
The consensus among experts outside of the waterproofing industry (structural engineers, local building department officials, building scientist, etc.) is that exterior waterproofing is the best choice. However, there are several good reasons why a homeowner would choose an interior solution over an exterior one. Visit these pages on our website to learn more about exterior waterproofing and interior waterproofing.
Put simply: because we can permanently repair your foundation problems on time and on budget. Don’t Settle!
