How to Drive Water Away from Your Home with Exterior Foundation Repair

Exterior Foundation Repair Safeguards Your Home from Water

Your House is vulnerable to water, especially when it comes to the basement. Despite block walls with mortar in-between, water can seep inside through small holes in the blocks or mortar. Over time, this causes structural damage to the outside of your house as well as severe problems on the inside. Prevent this from happening with exterior foundation repair from A-Proseal Basement Waterproofing in Island Lake, Illinois.

Ask our professionals to take care of the repairs and follow up with waterproofing. We will treat the outside of your home’s foundation with a coating that keeps water out. This protects the structural foundation of your home as well as keeps the inside nice and dry. Reach out to us if you have questions about our waterproofing services.

Tips to Direct Water Away from Your Newly Repaired Foundation

Preventive maintenance is a wise use of your money. It adds value to your home should you decide to sell and it prevents the need for expensive exterior foundation repair services down the road. There are many ways to prevent water from seeping into your home, including waterproofing, adding gutters, fixing cracks in the foundation, and grading the soil.

Rain gutters require regular cleaning by a professional to ensure the water is not washing out of the gutters and onto your house; pooling around the foundation. In addition to cleaning, if not functioning correctly, you may need gutter repairs to keep rainwater away from your walls. Properly working gutters direct water where it needs to go and away from the perimeter of your home.

Poorly graded soil directs water from your yard toward your basement. By adequately grading it, you will ensure water that collects will be led away from your foundation. This helps avoid future issues down the road.
