Waterproofing Services in Kansas

Discovering water in your basement or crawl space after a recent rainstorm is a big problem. You can’t use the space for storage for fear that it will fill up with water, ruining your things. Water getting into your basement or crawlspace can also damage expensive HVAC equipment, and lead to long-term mold and humidity problems. That’s why you need a quality basement waterproofing or crawl space encapsulation to keep the water out. Our systems are designed by SafeBasements™ and made in the USA. These products undergo rigorous testing to ensure they work effectively and keep your basement or cralwspace dry. Our waterproofing services are available throughout North Central Kansas.

Offering Foundation Waterproofing for Residential and Commercial Structures 

Commercial and residential properties need an extra amount of care and vigilance to prevent wear and tear. And one of the main important factors in maintaining a commercial and residential building is waterproofing its foundation. Our expert foundation contractors provide foundation waterproofing in Kansas by applying specialized coatings, membranes, and sealant to the exterior foundation wall to stop water from entering the structure. Breaking down this service, we provide–

  • Exterior Waterproofing – We apply a rubberized base coat and waterproof top coat, which will last you 25 years!
  • Interior Waterproofing – In this process, we seal cracks and voids from the inside with waterproof paints, coatings, or adhesive materials.
  • Drainage Systems – We also install sump pumps and drains to redirect water away from the commercial/residential property. These systems also stop water from pooling around the foundation. 

How to Waterproof Foundation Walls from Outside 

Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair has a proven process to protect your property’s foundation walls from water damage. Here’s how we waterproof foundation walls from outside–

Step 1: Excavate the Ground Around the Foundation Perimeter

Our foundation contractors dig around the foundation of the property so that the exterior walls are more exposed to apply waterproofing materials. We dig down to the base of the concrete footing to gain access to the entire foundation and also remove concrete sidewalks, decking, and landscaping. 

Step 2: Inspection and Seal Cracks in the Concrete

Then, we thoroughly inspect any cracks or damage like honeycombing in the exterior walls, which is the cause of water damage and moisture problems in the basement. If we see any cracks and damage, we will figure out the extent of the damage. After that, we do adequate repairs, like injecting epoxy resin or polyurethane, which prevents water from flowing freely between the exterior and interior foundation walls.

Step 3: Waterproofing Membrane to the Outside of the Foundation

Most of the foundation has concrete, which is very porous in nature. So, it is important to apply high-quality waterproofing membranes to the exterior foundation walls. With this process, we create a barrier that protects the foundation walls from water infiltration. For maximum efficiency, we also cover the footing with the membrane of your choice.

Step 4: Drainage System

The next step is installing a proper drainage system to redirect water away from the property. Drainage systems like sump pumps and drains help to prevent hydrostatic pressure from causing any additional damage to the foundation.

Step 5: Backfill the Trench Dug & Grade

Finally, we backfill the trench dug and grade the soil around the foundation. Additionally, we cover the trench pipe with clean gravel and a geotextile so it can drain the water properly without letting the water reach the freshly waterproofed foundation.

How to Waterproof a Foundation Wall 

At Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair, we use a variety of methods and technologies for home waterproofing your foundation wall, such as–

  • Liquid Applied Waterproofing: We apply a liquid waterproofing coating directly to the foundation walls. This coating forms a seamless, elastic barrier that prevents water penetration.
  • Cementitious Waterproofing: We mix a cement-based product with additives to provide a long-lasting, durable waterproof layer.
  • Sheet Membranes: We also secure high-quality, flexible sheet membranes to foundation walls, which provide superior water resistance.
  • Bentonite Clay Waterproofing: We apply natural bentonite clay to the foundation walls, especially if it has swelled after exposure to moisture. Then, we form a barrier against water infiltration.

Basement Waterproofing in Wichita KS

Basement Waterproofing

Basement waterproofing is a two-part system consisting of a water collection system and a sump pump. The water collection system will collect and divert water trying to enter your basement to a sump pump. The sump pump will be installed to safely remove the water from your basement.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation systems work to effectively block moisture from entering your crawl space through the use of a vapor barrier. This seals off your crawl space from the outside using a waterproof layer. Used in combination with a dehumidifier, you can manage humidity levels in your crawl space to prevent moisture damage.
