Wet basements can be caused by a variety of reasons. This includes leakages in the gutter, weather changes, foundation failure, or bursting of pipes. At Reborn Renovations, our basement renovation contractors understand the underlying causes that result in basement leaks and offer targeted solutions for your utmost benefits.
Generally, seepages in your basement take place on wall joints and floors. There are three distinct structures, namely, foundation wall, footing and concrete floors which are joints or seams. Water entry in the basement mostly takes place due to the floor wall joints that are quite common in households.
To make a basement waterproof, sump pumps play an increasingly important role. They not only help in removing water from the tile system, but effectively drain and release the water pressure. It needs to be understood that pumps are mechanical equipment that can fail at any instance. Therefore, the experts at Reborn Renovations suggest the usage of high water alarms, secondary pumps and battery back pumps.
Another common passage for water is leaked pipe penetration, foundation wall cracks, and tie holes. The wall cracks are generally shrinkage cracks that are not a major threat to a household. However, the issues related to waterproofing need to be dealt with effectively.
Similarly, window wells and grade windows can also be a path for water entry in your basement. Primarily, a window well acts as a catch basin for the water along with a functional drain. Furthermore, a seal is also required on the window installation. Likewise, a foundation wall can be another entry point for the water. This tends to happen when the landscaping or exterior grade on the foundation wall affects the framing. This itself is not just a basement waterproofing issue, but can lead to structural issues due to rotting of the wooden framing.
The basement floor cracks can also be an area of concern due to the hydrostatic pressure underneath the floor slab. In case the heaving or cracking is extremely harsh, you might be required to get the floor re-poured or removed. In a majority of the cases, the cracks can be repaired. The technique to be used is to get the weeping tike and sump system fixed at the earliest.
Foundation Crack Repair
The basement foundation is basically made up of foundation wall and footing. If the system is installed with precision, then it can last an eternity. While nobody wants to have a basement with foundation cracks, they tend to occur.
In most cases, foundation wall cracks are mere shrinkage cracks that are non-structural and need to be waterproofed. At Reborn Renovations, we use two techniques to repair basement wall cracks.
Exterior Crack Repairs: In such a repair, an excavation is done to the foundation footing that exposes the full length of the crack. Experts at Reborn Renovations then follow a two-step process that includes a Peel & Stick membrane that is accompanied by the DMX AG Foundation Wrap Installation. This ensures that the water is drained to the foundation footing’s weeping tile system.
Interior Crack Repairs: This type of repair is governed using a polyurethane application, which is then injected directly into the crack.
For repairs that are structural, our contractors will bring on an expert or engineer required to address the issue. To overcome such a damage, epoxy injections and reinforcement is a viable solution.

WEEPING TILE CONSTRUCTION AND RESIDENTIAL REPAIRS
For all new constructions, it is important to install weeping tiles and stones for all households. This makes it easier for the pooling water to affect the home due to the footing that ultimately exerts pressure and builds the volume to push in the household. This ultimately leads to seepages at the floor joints via the cracks.
Today, there are three ways to opt for a weeping tile system – interior, exterior and both. All these are viable options. As a standard, all households should be built using exterior weeping stone and tile. For old houses, the repair can be governed with weeping stone and tile exterior, or by getting an interior weeping tile system installed. The benefit of getting the external repair done is that the re-damp proofing of the wall becomes extremely easy. On the contrary, the downside of such a repair is that it becomes disruptive and extremely expensive, particularly for those households that are situated in the inner city.
Experts at Reborn Renovations recommend households for an interior WaterProof system, if the foundation walls are in good condition. The process is less disturbing, and budget efficient. Moreover, it covers the seepages and relieves the water pressure.
