Basement Waterproofing

Wouldn't you like a dry basement?

 

Settled Backfill

Over time, the loose soil replaced against your home’s foundation
settles and allows water to accumulate and seep down and cause damage rather than harmlessly flow away.


Our proven system includes:

  •     Initial site assessment and proposal (bid)
  •     Placing tarps, plywood, etc. as required to alleviate damage to driveways, sidewalks, patios and lawns
  •     Removing (only as required) the existing landscaping in the immediate construction zone
  •     Replacing or resealing (as necessary) any existing window wells
  •     Adding top-quality black topsoil to correct the grade
  •     Replacing any removed landscaping (if desired)
  • Backfill    Updating the landscaping for a fresh new modern look (if desired)

 

Swales and Berms

When the home sits too close to the ground to increase the soil level along the foundation, constructing swales and/or berms are the logical answer.

A swale is a specialized, aesthetically pleasing shallow and relatively wide ditch that channels the water out into the lawn where it can soak in or dissipate.

A berm is the exact opposite—it rises out of the lawn and acts as a dike or levee that keeps water away from the foundation.

We are your one-stop solution! We can correct the initial problem and update your landscaping while we are on-site—no need for you to deal with multiple contractors!
