FIX IT RIGHT, WATER TIGHT
There’s no secret on how to perform interior drain systems. Also known as the “French Drain”. There are a number of them out there and multiple contractors provide the services. The only problem with the process is the installer and material. Some contractors can do this very simple process the wrong way.
Costing you thousands of dollars and only having another company come back years later to fix it again. Be very careful of systems that sit on your footing. As these systems flirt with hydrostatic pressure and are prone to cement cracks after the finish product. Always make sure your contractor is licensed in the state of Michigan and carries insurance to protect you.
THE FINAL FIX TO ALL PROBLEMS
There’re multiple ways to fix your foundation or water problems. The way that basements were waterproofed for decades has been the process of exterior waterproofing. Sometimes the structure is compromised and the water keeps coming in. When multiple problems arise, usually due to delays in fixing the problem, this could be the only choice.
WHY CHOOSE EXTERIOR WATERPROOFING?
At Foundation Solutions 360 we never consider this as the first choice. In fact, we consider this as the last result. This is a very labor-intensive process and everything surrounding your home has to be moved or destroyed in the process. Not to mention the cost is almost double to other solutions we provide. Unfortunately for some homeowners, this might be the only choice. Water penetration along with bowing walls, cracks and mortar deterioration, and shifting of your footings can be a combination and sometimes isolated problem that will often lead to this type of excavation.
I can say without reserve, this method is just as good as any other. It’s a proven method that’s been used for decades and still works today. However, due to the labor and major excavation the homeowner endures, we try to give every solution a chance before this process.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
First, we’ll send out our inspectors and exam the problem at hand. We’ll do a 360-degree inspection, inside and out to see were and what needs to be done. Our inspectors will present a plan of action based on the structure type and code for your area. Our inspectors can answer any questions and love to educate the customer with what is happening and how our solution works.
Next we’ll sit down and go over what works for your budget. Basement waterproofing never comes at a good time. That’s why we have multiple financing plans available. Ask about our 4 years interest free plan. After this we’ll write our proposal and find a date and time that works for you and your family. Most of our jobs are completed within a couple weeks, sometimes sooner.
