Seepage between basement wall and floor

Cove seepage in basementMany homeowners have heard of it, but they might not know exactly what it is. The cove joint in a basement is the area where the wall meets the floor. Often times, when there is excessive hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding a home, it can push into the cove joint. Over time, the pressure will prove to be too much and it can break whatever kind of seal may be in place. When this happens, there will be water in the basement whenever the water table outside the foundation rises due to rainfall or melting snow on the lawn. This water problem is not uncommon, and it can easily be taken care of through the use of our waterproofing products and techniques.

There are some waterproofing contractors who believe that the best option for this kind of problem is to re-seal the cove joint to make sure water doesn't get inside again. However, at Dry Basement®, we do not feel as if this is an effective approach to the problem. Eventually, the hydrostatic pressure will break through the new seal, and the homeowner will again have water flooding their basement. Instead, we feel as if a better approach is to install one of our waterproofing systems, which includes sump pumps, drains and more. Our certified waterproofing professionals will be able to determine what system is going to work best and be most effective in a home based on the problems it is experiencing.

Our proven waterproofing systems will ensure that water isn't able to ever get in through the cove joint, and this means that you will have a dry and safe basement. A basement without moisture is a basement that is healthy, and it can be finished with extra living space being added on to the home for the family to use.
