Installing an exterior drainage system at an existing home or building is another solution when waterproofing a basement or foundation. This requires digging up the area around the foundation and rebuilding it similar to a new house installation. Some exterior drainage systems require digging up shrubs and obstacles around a home or building. Your KC Pro Drainage Specialist will build a plan and review the landscaping or terrain requirements prior to the drainage system installation process.
When waterproofing a foundation and installing interior and/or exterior draining systems, sump pumps are needed to ensure that the water is collected and pumped away from the structure. Sump pumps can save you thousands of dollars by maintaining the value of your home and by protecting your foundation, preventing foundation failure, which can save you a lot of money down the road.
KC Pro provides additional exterior waterproofing solutions to stop water infiltration through your concrete walls; these additional solutions can be applied as individual solutions or used in conjunction together. By applying hydrostatic mastic; a rubberized product, on the foundation cracks or entire wall a seal is created to prevent water infiltration. Another solution is applying MiraDRI; self-adhering waterproofing membrane that is applied to foundation walls. This solution is applied in sheets and covers an entire wall. The sheets are applied and overlap each other to secure a tight seal. A benefit of using MiraDRI is the consistency of the seal throughout the structure. A third solution is MiraDRAIN which is used to not only waterproof your foundation walls, but to allow for better drainage to your tile system.
