Although our preferred method of waterproofing is an exterior solution, we do recognize that there are many good reasons why an interior waterproofing solution fits the situation or customer better. Below is some useful information about what an interior waterproofing solution entails.
Weeping holes are drilled into your foundation to allow water to be controlled. A trench approximately 1-foot-wide and 1-foot-deep is dug with a jackhammer in the slab above your foundation footing and against your foundation walls. A drain is then installed that collects the water that was been controlled in through the weeping holes. This water flows into a sump pump which then pumps the water back outside.
As you can see from the above diagram, water is managed into the wall, down into the drain pipe, towards a sump pump, and then carried back out again. Because of the nature of how it is installed, make sure you hire an expert and experienced company to install one for you.
If you need or prefer an exterior waterproofing solution, we can provide those for you as well. There are pros and cons to both types of waterproofing solutions.
