Brackett Foundation Repairs is more than accustomed to the unpredictable weather and soil conditions of North Carolina. Depending on the location of your home you could be experiencing an excessive amount of water built up around your foundation and well as in your crawlspace. Water infiltration can cause many problems such as cracks in basement walls, bowed walls, sticking doors, mold as well as many other foundation issues. Brackett Foundation Repairs is prepared to handle those concerns by providing Waterproofing and Drainage System Installation services to protect homeowners from damage caused by excessive moisture/water conditions.
WATERPROOFING & DRAINAGE SYSTEMS:
Waterproofing is the process of making a structure waterproof or water-resistant, so that it remains relatively unaffected by water.
Brackett’s waterproofing system consist of cleaning the wall(s) affected, filling any/all voids/cracks and applying a waterproof membrane. Brackett Foundation then covers the wall(s) with a 20-mil plastic and a protects it with a foam board.
Brackett’s drainage system is then installed which will consist of a 4” perforated pipe wrapped in a geo-textile fabric and covered in #57 stone. The stone is then brought up to grade level. The system is then often gravity fed and terminates at an appropriate location on the property.
Downspouts are often extended to draw water in a more positive flow away from the foundation.
