Exterior waterproofing is the best way to prevent water from entering into your home's basement or crawl space area. While interior waterproofing controls the water that has already entered into your home, exterior waterproofing prevents that water from entering in the first place. While most modern building materials may be competent to withstand the weather, not all homes are designed in such a way to block water from entering the home. Some older methods of drainage have been shown to be ineffective, even making the problem worse.

Signs that your basement needs exterior waterproofing:

  • Clogged downspouts that keep water from flowing where it should
  • Poor or damaged drainage pipes that no longer pull water away from the home
  • Cracks or gaps in the foundation wall from water continually collecting next to your house
  • Water seeping through cracks in the concrete
  • A negative grade caused by solid slopping toward your house instead of away from it
  • Rodents or insects inside your basement could indicate cracks or holes in your foundation wall and an entrance for water

What can cause water to enter my basement?

One area of your home where seepage most commonly occurs is the cove joint. The cove joint is the juncture where your home's floor and wall meet. Water entering your home at the cove joint occurs due to hydrostatic pressure, the pressure against your house caused when the soil around your basement is saturated with water putting pressure on your foundation. This pressure can also cause water to pour in under the footer or through cracks it may form in your basement's floor slab.

Simply sealing the cove joint or slapping some exterior waterproofing paint or sealant on your foundation walls may lead to other problems with your foundation. In most cases, the best way to eliminate water from entering your home is to partner with a waterproofing expert.

Our proven exterior basement waterproofing method

Our exterior basement waterproofing solution consists of drainage board, four-inch perforated pipe, a waterproofing membrane and gravel. Like traditional pipe-and-gravel systems, water freely flows through the plastic pipe away from the home with the 1" washed gravel allowing space for excess water. A thin membrane protects the pipe from silt or mud buildup. The dimple drainage board and rubberized membrane sit squarely against the foundation wall, an added measure to protect the basement from potential seepage. These additional precautions are part of the reason Stealth Foundation can offer a lifetime, fully transferable warranty on every waterproofing or foundation repair project it executes
