When you call us for a consultation, we will schedule a time that is convenient for you to have a waterproofing tech come out to your home. Once there, he will evaluate the drainage and grading on your lawn, and he will also carefully inspect your exterior foundation walls. After a careful evaluation, he will be able to figure out what is going to work best and be most effective for your home's unique needs.

The Seal-Tite Exterior Waterproofing System
This exterior waterproofing system will be able to keep moisture out where it belongs. It's important to ensure that water stays out of your home because once it gets inside, it can cause a lot of serious problems and expensive damage. Water in a basement is sometimes able to seep into the home through cracks in the exterior foundation walls . It may also get inside over the top of the foundation when there are issues with lawn grading and drainage. This is often seen on homes that have hills that are slanted downward toward the home. Whenever it rains, or when there is melting snow on the lawn, the moisture rolls down the hill and pools up next to the foundation walls. Water always finds the path of least resistance, and when you have a weak and cracked foundation, it will eventually make its way inside via this outlet. This is why it's so important to make sure that you get the problem taken care of outside of the home with an effective system, such as one from Seal-Tite.
