Protect Your Home from Water Damage with Our Expert Interior Waterproofing Solutions -Guaranteed to Keep Your Home or Commercial Building Safe and Dry.
Stopping water from collecting around and underneath your foundation ranks #1 on the list of “to-dos” when it comes to maintaining a health record on 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 concrete foundation wall and lead to leaks, structural damage, and moisture in your crawl space. An interior waterproofing solution from AMC911 offers you the best protection against water intrusion.
Interior Waterproofing by AMC911
Crawl spaces across Hampton Roads are pretty consistently damp, humid, and soggy. AMC911 can install an interior waterproofing system to drain water away from your home to create a safe and dry living space for you and your family. Interior waterproofing is typically a more simple and affordable solution for crawl space and basement drainage. Many homeowners in Virginia choose to install an interior waterproofing system because it is less labor-intensive and does not require the removal of landscaping like exterior waterproofing does. It can also be installed all year round and is not affected by the outside weather or elements.
How Interior Waterproofing Works
Our experienced team of engineers and design specialists will assess your specific needs. They will then design an interior waterproofing system including a sump pump to keep your crawl space permanently dry and rid of disturbing crawl space moisture.
When you make the smart choice to install interior waterproofing and a sump pump, you are investing in your home and your health. First our team will install a perforated drain pipe (commonly referred to as a drain tile) inside the perimeter of the crawl space. This drain tile is the most effective part of the interior waterproofing system, as it’s responsible for draining water to the sump basin which is the hollow chamber the sump pump sits in.
When the water in the sump basin reaches max capacity, the sump pump turns on and expels the water outside of the crawl space and away from the home using a discharge line.
Because AMC911 sump basins are made out of polyethylene, they are strong and impact resistant. This increases the life expectancy of the sump pump, preventing it from crushing or deteriorating.
Benefits of Interior Waterproofing & Sump Pumps by AMC911
The benefits of interior waterproofing to include drain tile and a sump pump are endless.
Not only will an interior waterproofing system save you a lot of headache and money in the long run, it will contribute to a cleaner, safer home. Many crawl spaces and basements in Tidewater, VA are highly susceptible to flooding… After all, we do live on the coast. Furthermore, heavy rains and plumbing mishaps such as clogged drains can lead to standing water in your crawl space.
The biggest benefit of a sump pump is that it’s an active system verses a passive system. By this, we mean that sump pumps work actively to prevent water from coming into your home while also pumping it out if it does enter. Sump pumps are constantly working to keep water away from your home before it makes its way in through cracks in your crawl space walls. Trench drains, French drains and even exterior water repellent coatings are reactive in that they are simply only present to whatever situation arises.
Without the use of a sump pump, you can be assured that water will find it’s pesky way back into your crawl space somehow.
Crack Injection Repair
Another interior waterproofing method that we use is crack injection repair. If you have smaller cracks that allow water into your home and are not causing serious structural damage, we can seal them with an epoxy or polyurethane injection.
Our crack injection materials are commercial grade and extremely reliable. These waterproofing resins are designed to seal cracks and voids in your foundation, preventing water and air leakage.
