Home Waterproofing Benefits
By waterproofing stucco now, you can prevent foundation damage and spare yourself from grief and heavy expense later.
First, excavation of the dirt surrounding your rooms or structure will need to be done, and a waterproofing compound or membrane will be applied to the walls. Waterproofing protects your walls and critical surfaces against weather and water damage over time.
Second, drainage will then be installed, and the dirt put back in place. If this is not done by an experienced professional, sections could be missed, and water will still find its way back in.
Why are drainage panels necessary?
- Drainage Panels: Relieves foundation waterproofing pressure to below-grade foundations, basements, and crawl spaces.
- Rain Runoff: Roof waterproofing gutters and downspouts can help you avoid hundreds of gallons of water saturating the soil against your foundation, creating foundation waterproofing pressure.
- Waterproof Drains: Drainage panels installed over foundation waterproofing and footing profiles provide a protective barrier to the foundation waterproofing work.
