What Type of Basement Waterproofing is Right For Your Home
There are a few different tactics our basement waterproofing specialists use to fortify foundations. Every home is different, so the price of healing every home is different. Exterior projects that require excavation might be more expensive than other homes that need an interior sump pump installation. Your cost is often determined by what your home needs, not by what you want to pay. At the end of the day, if you ignore warning signs, it’ll wind up costing you more in the long run.
All told, your basement might require any one or all of the following basement waterproofing methods.
Protecting your home from the inside out is equally important to exterior waterproofing methods. This is especially true if you are already experiencing a degree of water seepage in your basement system or crawlspace.
Seepage wares down on concrete walls, creating wall cracks and water damage as a result. Left unchecked, can erode your foundation walls and ultimately lead to a collapse.
The act of waterproofing basements is an attempt to make and keep your basement dry. How our professionals accomplish that goal depends on what your home needs, and that will ultimately determine your costs.
Basement waterproofing involves anything from applying a concrete sealer to wall cracks to installing a new Hydraway system complete with a submersible sump pump. Schedule a free estimate with a Helitech professional today to learn what a waterproofing project might look like for your basement.
Just like interior waterproofing, exterior waterproofing aims to keep your home’s foundation strong and your interior basement dry and free of any dampness.
Your home’s foundation is constantly under pressure from the outside world. That’s okay to some degree, though. A concrete foundation can withstand some levels of water pressure for decades. However, if you aren’t properly draining water from your home, you might be putting more pressure on than it can handle.
At Helitech, our waterproofing system involves a wide range of solutions and tactics, depending on the foundation. We often help clients by installing a french drain or downspout extensions, which help transfer water away from your yard. Your home might also require an exterior sump pump to help remove excess standing water.
Once again, the full solution for your home’s foundation is a bit complicated. We’re happy to send a professional your way so they can fully assess your foundation and give a transparent pricing figure.
Typical Labor Costs Associated with Waterproofing Contractors
Of course, as with any contracting job, factoring in labor costs is essential. Our trained professional staff works tirelessly to ensure every foundation repair method is implemented properly and to our client’s complete satisfaction.
For labor, the number of square feet being serviced will help inform our pricing. If you’d like a more detailed look at what labor costs might look like at your home vs. embarking on a DIY adventure, please consult with Helitech. We offer free estimates that break down the costs by line items so you know exactly what you’re paying for.
Additional Potential Costs for Hiring a Waterproofing Company
Waterproofing a basement comes with a warranty offered by a basement waterproofing company such as Helitech.
Whenever workers are spending more time excavating, the price usually goes up. This makes working from outside on a deep foundation more cumbersome than interior waterproofing.
For some, purchasing a dehumidifier solely for your basement is a worthwhile investment. This allows you to control humidity better and eliminate bad air quality.
Gutters play a huge role in basement waterproofing. Always make sure your downspouts are clean and that they are discharging water at least 5ft from the foundation.
If you are a gardener or landscaper, make sure your plants are at least 12in away from the foundation to encourage water drainage.
