Waterproofing Solutions for Your Alabama Home
Alabama has a shallow rock bed, high water table and clay soil. All of these factors contribute to water entering the basement through any opening it can find. This includes cracks in floors, walls and joints. The obvious sign that you are in need of basement or crawlspace waterproofing is standing water. However, there are other, not so obvious signs that you may be in need of waterproofing. Some of these are:
- Condensation – damp walls, dripping pipes, rusty hardware
- Humidity – excess humidity in the air
- Seepage – dampness on walls or floors
- Leaks – water trickling from a wall or floor
- Subterranean water – a thin, barely noticeable layer of water on the basement floor
Don’t let a small water problem turn into an even larger problem. Let the professionals at Grout Tech inspect your home and offer you the best solution for your waterproofing needs.
Grout Tech offers surface drainage, interior drainage, exterior drainage and sump pump systems.
Surface drainage consists of a channel drains, conventional drains, catch basins, drain pipe and water discharge emitters. All of these surface drainage products will keep the water flowing away from the foundation.
Interior drainage consists of installing a perforated drainage pipe along the interior footing of the basement and then is connected to a sump pump system. By installing the drain pipe below the slab, it will drain the water to a lower level.
Exterior drainage systems consists of installing a drainage pipe along the exterior of the foundation. This pipe is connected to a sump pump system to keep the water from pooling around the foundation. Stopping the water from collecting around the exterior of the foundation will prevent the water from ever entering the basement.
Grout Tech installs sump pump systems that includes the sump pit and the pump itself along with battery back up sump pumps. The pumps Grout Tech installs has a high quality switch mechanism that won’t fail. We install dual switches to provide redundancy in the case of switch failure.
All of the waterproofing products we install are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in the manufacturing of waterproofing products in the industry. ECP waterproofing products will stand the test of time and last longer than builder’s grade waterproofing products.
