Waterproofing Projects

Review some of our "before, during and after" photos for basement projects.

Stages of our SFDPR Basement Waterproofing System

Our Sub-Floor Deep-Pressure Relief (SFDPR) system ensures no leakage from the walls or the floor. Our system is designed specifically to your house to ensure adequate water drainage from within and around the foundation walls and placement of the sump pump (if needed) to allow for discharge away from the house.

Finished Basement Systems

Our finished system will show a new concrete patch along the walls where the system was installed and about 2-3 inches of the moisture diverter along the wall. The sump pumps are safely installed inside the basin about two feet below the floor surface to discharge water as it gathers. An optional battery backup pump includes two pumps in one combo unit and a battery that stays safely inside a container next to the basin. The battery is ready to activate should power go out during a storm.

Project 1: Crawl Space Encapsulation

Homeowner had a crawl space with dirt floor and a musty smell. Her goal was to have an area where she could store items in a dry location, free of water and musty, damp odors. We installed a reinforced vapor and moisture barrier and a sump pump. The barrier comes with antimicrobial additive to prevent mold growth and the pump ensures excess water collecting within the soil is removed. The client now has a clean, dry space to store their holiday decorations and garden items.

Project 2: Adding Cement Floor to Crawlspace

Rather than encapsulating the floor, this client wanted to cement the entire floor. We leveled out the area and cleaned out debris that was present, laid down a gravel layer and our 14mil moisture barrier for additional protection, then brought in cement to give them a new floor to their crawl space. We had to slope the floor down a bit to ensure access to the sewer clean out valve.

Project 3: Foundation Crack Repair

This client opted for a hydraulic cement patch across two vertical cracks in their garage. We chiseled out both sides of the crack (inside and outside), cleaned out loose debris, and filled it in with hydraulic cement. The wall was smoothed to allow for the client to paint the walls at a later time.

Project 4: Crawl Space Encapsulation

Another client had a dreary crawl space that she wanted cleaned up, reinsulated, and encapsulated. We cleaned out the crawl space by removing a lot of old insulation, plastic, and debris. We leveled the existing dirt floor with gravel and encapsulated the space. We reinsulated the ceiling to make her living area above warmer. They are very pleased with our work and found our workers to be very respectful and helpful.

“With over 5″ of rain from Hurricane Elsa the drain system in the basement was put to the test and worked. We had a steady stream of water coming in at the well pipes and along about 6′ of the left rear wall… The water went into the drain system…there was NO water on the center of the basement floor. And nothing running across the floor… The drain system is a success.”

“We had a great experience… The (new) owner and the workers were all careful, respectful and excellent in their work. Tom, the owner, was very patient detailing all the installation details and how to maintain the system moving forward. Very highly recommended and very reasonable price as well.”

“…Tom and the team worked efficiently and completed the work on time, leaving the area clean. During the work, an additional problem was discovered which Tom was able to resolve within the already agreed terms. Overall very happy with what was done and will gladly recommend their work.”

“Tom was very responsive, thorough, helpful and professional. He and his staff/crew did a great job. The cost was reasonable for the job and he did very timely follow up and communicated throughout the entire process.”

“We had an emerging issue with some water seepage in our basement and Tom came to take a look and offer some suggestions.  The work was done on time (one day) and on budget and very professionally.”
