Understanding Basement Water Leakage
Basement is the foundation of the building and the rest of the building is rested on top of the basement. It should be a known fact that what surrounds the basement structure is usually soil which is constantly damp and there is presence of water in the soil. This exposes the basement walls to constant contact with water and dampness.
If basement walls are not properly waterproofed, the water and dampness will find its way past the basement walls into the house. The damage to a building’s structural integrity that water intrusion through basement can bring about is severe, steel reinforcement bars can be corroded and loses its bond with the concrete and this will weaken structural strength. If the structure of the basement is compromised, the entire building will get affected as well. If you find water intrusion, seepage or leakage problems happening in the basement, you must rectify the problem immediately before the structural integrity of the basement gets damaged too seriously.
Basement walls are almost always constructed from concrete and due to the nature of a basement, it is almost impossible to re-waterproofing the basement walls through a waterproofing membrane system. Therefore, the best approach to repair basement water intrusion and seepage is to conduct high pressure polyurethane (PU) injection grouting. PU injection grouting is a hassle-free, no hacking and clean repair method which is more cost effective than many other repair methods.
