Protect Your Home from Water Damage with Our Expert Exterior Waterproofing Solutions -Guaranteed to Keep Your Home or Commercial Building Safe and Dry.
Stopping water from collecting around and underneath your foundation are important factors in ensuring the long-term structural integrity of your home. Most homes in the Hampton Roads area sit atop expansive soil that is prone to soaking up water like a sponge during rainfall or flooding events.
If you are not careful, water will seep through a porous concrete foundation wall and lead to leaks, structural damage, and moisture in your crawl space. An exterior waterproofing solution from AMC911 offers you the best protection against water intrusion.
How Does Water Enter My Home?
Water is transferred from the exterior of your home to its interior. It seeps into cracks and gaps in walls and floors. Water intrusion can also be caused by surface tension and hydrostatic pressure in the soil. When water makes its way into your crawl space, it saturates the concrete foundation block wall or block piers. When water gets absorbed by concrete, it will lead to humidity and high levels of moisture. As a result, homes may experience mold growth, musty odors, and worst of all… structural damage.
How Does Exterior Waterproofing Work?
Exterior waterproofing is installed around the outside perimeter of the foundation where the footings are. The drainage pipe channels excess moisture in the soil toward a sump pit, and then it’s released away from the foundation via a sump pump and channel drains.
Like interior waterproofing, exterior waterproofing prevents hydrostatic pressure from building up in the soil around the foundation. Excess moisture in the soil flows into the drainage pipe and gets directed toward the sump pit. When the pit fills with water, the sump pump ejects it away from the foundation.
