How do I stop water leaks through my basement wall?
This is a common problem that has a very simple solution. Water can seep through foundation walls leaving stains on the surface or even puddles on the floor. Stop the water for good with Epoxy Waterproofer! We have been making this 2 part waterproofing epoxy for 40 years and have stopped thousands of gallons of water from damaging basements. No solvents are added to this 100% epoxy so there is no obnoxious smells or toxic fumes. Application is as easy as mixing the part B into the part A and then applying with a brush or roller over the affected areas. Color packs can be added in order to tint the epoxy to easier blend or hide repairs.
Epoxy Waterproofer contains 100% solids and is applied from a thin brush application up to a 1/8th inch thick cladding capable of withstanding hydrostatic pressure and stopping radon gas migration in a leaking basement. Cracks and patches can be repaired and made waterproof by adding clean silica sand to Epoxy Waterproofer.
Know the difference between “sealed” and “waterproof”. Epoxy Waterproofer is a specially formulated, heavy bodied, thermo setting, self curing epoxy that hardens to a ceramic like, non-porous, clear, impermeable and waterproof film. This is a 2 part 100% solids epoxy that cures clear or can be pigments to a variety of colors by adding a color pack. Use on interior/exterior foundations, precast concrete tanks, stone, potable water tanks, ponds, waterfalls, pools etc.
Traditionally, basement waterproofing always involved excavating the foundation; a costly undertaking indeed. Today there are a number of ways to fix wet basements from within the basement itself – a much less expensive (and less destructive) proposition.
There are many ways to stop ground water from entering a finished basement through a leaking crack, but none of them are as simple as using our Epoxy Waterproofer. Just brush it over a crack, allow it to set and you’re done, no chipping and no patching. Wide cracks can be sealed by mixing clean silica sand into the epoxy to make an epoxy mortar that will stay in place while it cures. Watch our video to see how simple it is.
