Leaky basements can create structural damage and decrease the value of your home. That’s why the experts at Reliable Waterproofing & Masonry offer basement waterproofing. It is an inexpensive, effective solution to protect your home from water damage. We service the residents in Richmond, VA with professional drainage solutions. Leaky basements are often caused by soil-related issues around and underneath the foundation. These issues include:

  • Improper downspouts
  • Malfunctioning sump pumps
  • Poor drainage
  • Leaky plumbing

Exterior Waterproofing: Exterior waterproofing is true waterproofing. When installing an exterior waterproofing system, we use the following products:

  • Waterproofing membrane
  • Dimple drainage board
  • Perforated drain pipe
  • Drainpipe fittings
  • Sump basin
  • Sump pump
  • Sump pump discharge freeze guard

Interior waterproofing: This is the most popular system. The products that we use to complete the installation process include water channel, SDS, 4″ drain pipe, sump pit with lid, sump pumps, vapor barrier, and a system clean-out. The installation process involves the following steps:

  1. A perforated drain pipe is installed inside the perimeter of the footing.
  2. We remove and replace the concrete that is around the slab edge.
  3. A drain pipe is installed underneath the slab. This drains the area to a lower area.
  4. The drainage pipe is attached to a sump pump system to help discharge water away from the foundation.
