Take Action to Fight Off Moisture and Foundation Damage
Keeping water away from walls helps preserve a foundation. When water is allowed to run freely into walls and soil around a house or commercial facility, it can seep into brick and cement work. Eventually, hairline cracks occur that can weaken the foundation’s strength and stability. Exterior waterproofing creates proper drainage systems to keep walls and foundations dry.

Effective Exterior Waterproofing and Drainage
Professional technicians work to make sure properties have good drainage systems that keep water away from walls and out of basements. A lot feeds into proper drainage. The way the roof can handle and direct rainwater, gutter systems, flashing and other components of a building work together to push water away from a house or commercial building. Here are some other methods that Foundation Support Specialists can use to help with waterproofing and drainage.
- Gutter Maintenance and Repair: Drainage issues usually occur for simple reasons. The most common reason is gutter blockages or breaks. Gutters are an interconnected system that collects water and feeds it away from walls and foundations. If one piece is broken, the exterior is exposed. Clearing and repairing gutter systems needs to happen regularly.
- Curtain Drains: Curtain drains help prevent water from pooling when a building or house is located on a slope. Trenches are made some distance away from the house and pipes are laid to funnel water that comes down the slope.
- Drainage System Extensions: Depending on the facility, the amount of rainfall and other conditions, professional waterproofing and drainage services can extend downspouts capable of doing what’s necessary to keep things dry.
