Is Your Basement Wet From Water Drainage Issues?
Most problems with water entry and wet basements inside the house are due to poor drainage on the outside. Quick action is needed as the extra moisture will lead to mold, mildew and decay.
If water is coming from outside the house, the drainage around the exterior needs to be evaluated and improved as soon as possible.

“Waterproofing” your basement is the process of sealing cracks in the concrete of your foundation wall. It is applied to the inside basement wall, although “waterproofing” sealer can also be applied to the exterior wall of the foundation after the foundation walls have been exposed through digging.
At Ideal Renovations, we recommend that you first take steps to redirect the water away from your foundation. Waterproofing can be used as a final step in the drainage remediation process, to ensure that a basement stays dry.
