Is your basement leaking?
How do you know you have a problem? Water intrusion is the most obvious sign of a problem. But if you notice cracks in your concrete, bubbles or peeling in the paint, or efflorescence, you may have a basement that needs waterproofing… sooner than later. The scope of this project is not DIY. We find the source, fix the source, and implement proper drainage systems, finger space drains, waterproof coatings, sump pumps, low-pressure crack injections, and more. We do what’s necessary to leave you with a dry basement where your family can spend more time laughing and less time using a wet vac. Our service areas include Cumming, Alpharetta, Roswell, Canton, and Buford, Georgia.
Our basement waterproofing stops water in its tracks
Residential basement waterproofing is a task that requires the right equipment and latest technologies. Finger-space drains, for example, can create a dam to stop water and redirect it away from your foundation. They are excellent at keeping your basement dry. At Archie’s Veteran Waterproofing, we stay up to date on the latest technologies and processes so we can ensure our customers they’re getting the best service. After a thorough inspection, we may find we have to dig up around your basement walls, waterproof the exterior, and install french drains and/or finger drains around the perimeter. Other times, we may find a sump pump is necessary or that your shrubbery needs to be removed. Large shrubbery close to your home can present all sorts of problems with roots trying to find water. Our team is here to answer your questions and deliver the best service.
What is efflorescence?
This is sometimes confused with mold. Efflorescence is the chalky white substance that can be found on concrete basement walls and is a display of minerals that are left after moisture has passed through your porous concrete block walls. Seeing efflorescence is a sure sign of groundwater or even surface water running towards your foundation instead of away from your foundation. Poor drainage and lack of drainage systems in place are most likely the problems. While we can use a waterproofing coating inside your basement, we don’t need to ignore the source. If the outside walls are not waterproofed and water directly away, you’ll experience a recurring problem.
