Here is a brief overview of the basement waterproofing services that we offer in Columbia, Maryland:
- Internal waterproofing, where a covered trough is installed in the basement to collect any water that seeps through the foundation. This water is then re-routed away from the foundation and out of the home through a drainage system, often with the assistance of a pump.
- External waterproofing, where the dirt immediately surrounding the foundation of the home is excavated and the existing drainage system is cleaned, repaired, and optimized to help prevent water from entering the basement.
