While your property can suffer from water in almost any location, basements are high-risk locations when it comes to leaks, damp and mold.

Once water is present, your foundations could become unstable, mold could spread to other parts of the building and insect infestations can occur. By waterproofing your basement, however, you can prevent damp and minimize the risk of leaks. 

While a foundation repair or reconstruction can take place after a leak has occurred, taking steps to waterproof your basement before a leak happens can be far easier and much more cost-effective. 

Whether you want to protect your property, or you’ve already noticed damp in your basement, Rhino Foundation Systems can provide the appropriate waterproofing solution. With various options available, we’ll determine the best course of action depending on the type of problems you’re experiencing.

When we’re assessing the property, we will look at the following issues:

  • When did the leak start?
  • Does the moisture dry out on its own?
  • How much water can you see?
  • Are any other parts of the property affected?
  • Is mold present?
  • Does the water originate from the interior or exterior of the property?
  • Is the leak consistent?

Three Methods For Basement Waterproofing:

Interior Sealant

An interior sealant helps to keep moisture locked in to the floor of your foundation or the walls of your basement. Essentially a special coating, this will ensure that moisture from the outside can’t penetrate the walls and flooring of your basement. Ideal as a moisture barrier, interior sealants can provide an effective barrier against moisture absorbency but won’t be strong enough to protect your basement from a full-blown leak.

Interior Water Drainage

Interior drainage systems are a great way to carry out basement waterproofing. By collecting and transporting water out of the basement, it is unable to cause any damage to the property or pose a health risk to its inhabitants. 

It’s not uncommon for water to collect in the basement of a property but interior water drainage systems can transport the water outside and away from the property efficiently. As one of the most cost-effective ways to waterproof your basement, interior water drainage is an extremely popular option when it comes to preventing leaks and water damage.

Exterior Basement Waterproofing

When properties are at high risk of flooding or water intrusion, exterior basement waterproofing is a great option. As access to the exterior of the foundations is necessary, this type of waterproofing is usually carried out on new builds and as part of the renovation process. With specialist sealants, membranes and drainage in place, exterior basement waterproofing can offer complete protection from leaks and damp, even in high-risk areas.
