A wet basement can lower your property value and reduce the amount of livable space in your home. Cornerstone Structural Repair and Waterproofing uses several basement waterproofing products, all uniquely designed to keep water from leaking into basements. With the proper basement waterproofing, you can turn your basement into a great living space.

From where does water in basements come?

A common cause for water entering a subsoil basement in the St. Louis area is clogged drainpipes or downspouts. If your home's drainpipes are clogged, rainwater cannot be properly carried away from the house. Therefore, the water saturates the soil surrounding your home and can penetrate your basement walls. In addition, most basement leaks are cause by a combination of water seeping through wall joints as well as through cracks in the basement floor. In these situations, basement waterproofing is the ideal solution to stop the leaking.

What waterproofing system is best for my basement?

There are several different approaches, which can be taken when professionally waterproofing a basement. Cornerstone Structural Repair and Waterproofing will determine the ideal system to stop water leaks into your basement based on a number of factors. Due to differences in the soil surrounding St. Louis area basements as well as the variance in age and structural condition of a basement, the best solution to a wet basement can vary. We work with each individual client to determine the best waterproofing solution for their needs. The following solutions are several effective waterproofing products our professional employees use to stop water leaks in basements.

Drain-Main System

The Drain-Main System integrates the baseboard style waterproofing system with the subfloor tile waterproofing system. A benefit of the Drain-Main basement waterproofing system is that it requires minimal concrete floor removal. Finally, the Drain-Main system uses a secondary channel in addition to the main reservoir to collect any backflow. This system is proven effective in fixing basement leaks.

Flat Track System / Drain EZE

The Drain EZE system is a waterproofing product that collects water from where the basement walls meet the footer. This product then directs the water to the Flat Track basement waterproofing system, which also works to pull water from under your basement floor and lead it to a sump pump. These waterproofing products will stop water from collecting in your basement.

Vapor Bright

When water leaks into the crawl spaces around your home it can result in damp and humid conditions in these areas. This moisture can then seep through your floorboards to create a breeding ground for mold and mildew. The Vapor Bright system will create an impenetrable waterproof layer protecting your home from moist conditions.
