How Concrete Leveling Can Solve Your Waterproofing Woes

Waterproofing and Concrete Leveling | Mr. Level

What is Waterproofing?

Waterproofing involves the use of techniques and resources necessary to prevent water from getting inside your home’s basement. When it rains very hard, a waterproofed basement will not experience any water from outside.

If you have recently experienced a basement flood, it is important to understand the root of your problems before choosing a plan of action. Even if your basement has seen its share of water, insufficient waterproofing may not be the problem.

Why Your Problem May Not Be Bad Waterproofing:

Depending on your home, calling your local waterproofing experts may not actually solve your problem. It’s important to know where the water came from. If your basement looks fine on the inside, with no cracks, water marks or any presence of mold, mildew or any foul smells, then your basement might not be the problem, after all. Instead, you should rather think outside the basement.

If you have concrete outside your home, it could be sunken in, cracked or sloped in a way where a current of rainwater can be directed towards the house. As a result, you can get water leaking into your basement due to all the water going where it is not supposed to.

Instead of hiring a waterproofing expert and investing a lot of time and money into slightly improving your basement, there could actually be a simpler job that the folks at Mr. Level can do for you. Mr. Level may be able to save you thousands by re-directing your concrete (with polyurethane) so that water won't go into your basement.

Cement Leveling to Redirect Water to Your Basement

How Concrete Leveling Can Be Used to Redirect Water

There are a few different approaches to concrete leveling. Mr. Level levels your concrete with polyurethane foam. How do we get the polyurethane foam under your cement? We drill small (dime-sized) holes into your sunken concrete in strategic spots. Then, a highly dense polyurethane is pumped into these holes. The soil underneath will then be compacted, and capable of holding up the concrete competently once again. As the polyurethane flows underneath your slabs of concrete, it will exert a balanced pressure across your whole driveway or patio, therefore raising back to its proper position.

To further restore the look and performance of your concrete, the holes will be filled, along with other possible cracks, in order to make your driveway, patio or other concrete slab look good as new. The next time there is rainfall, any water will not be directed towards your home, resulting in no longer getting your basement flooded.

This entire process can be done in less than a day, and as a result, you can prevent your basement from experiencing floods before the next storm comes.
