Leaking basement walls

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.

Concrete Snap Tie Leaks

 

How to stop running water coming from a snap tie pocket in a basement wall.

1. Remove the snap tie from the wall, wire brush the surface of the concrete.

2. For holes bigger than an 1/8″ , fill with Waterprlug Hydraulic cement. Allow the Waterplug to set for 30 minutes

3. Brush on a heavy coat of Epoxy Waterproofer over the Waterplug and overlap 1″ all the way around the patch.

The Epoxy Waterproofer can be used without Waterplug if the pocket left by the snap tie is less than 1/8″ in diameter.

This repair is permanent and will prepare your wall to accept further waterproofing coatings.

How to stop water from a leaking crack in my basement

leaking crack in basement

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.
