Exterior waterproofing sounds pretty involved, but actually is a straightforward process. After determining the problem area from inside the basement, we work with homeowners on determining how wide of an area to dig based on time and budget. From the outside, we then dig approximately 8 feet down to the drain tile. With the wall now exposed, we thoroughly clean it and the crack before applying black tar all over. From there, a waterproof plastic is applied, and then more tar goes on top. Then, the hole is filled with pea gravel to ensure proper drainage down to the drain tile, to quickly and effectively move any water that would have otherwise found your wall.
