Interior waterproofing

Our interior waterproofing services include removing the floor section at the wall and getting rid of debris, digging the footer, and installing the drain tile and gravel. This system directs seepage away from wall cracks, weep holes, floors and other water intrusion points. All areas are then re-cemented and any debris is hauled away.

Exterior waterproofing

Exterior waterproofing service includes excavation of the affected area, cleaning the wall surface and waterproofing the exterior foundation using tar membranes and a drainage board system. Our team then installs new drain tile pipe with gravel, backfills the excavated area and hauls away excess dirt and debris.

Stabilizing walls

In order to stabilize walls, we excavate the affected area, straighten the wall back to a positive vertical position and secure it by installing a backup steel reinforced concrete foundation. The old and new foundations are then waterproofed with tar membranes. Next, a new footer drain pipe with gravel-and-drainage matting is installed. Finally, the excavated area is backfield and all excess debris is hauled away.


Underpinning is a specialty foundation service that can help with severe issues. Interior and/or exterior settled areas are excavated as necessary using FASTEEL brackets secured to and under the footer. Steel 3½-inch piers are pressed into the ground to the load bearing strata or bedrock using the latest technological hydraulic strut systems. The structure is jacked up to what the integrity of the building will allow.

Other services

We install and/or repair window wells by waterproofing, as well as using drain tile pipe and gravel with a gravity feed runoff.

We can also handle downspout runoffs. Our team installs solid PVC pipe with a gravity feed runoff. Yard drains are another area we cover. Surface or subsurface drain pipes are installed to direct water way from the structure.
