Damp And Waterproofing
These are two of the most effective lines of defense one can add to their home or business to protect your foundation. Dampproofing is added to the exterior of your building and is made up of an asphalt coating. It is used to protect your foundation against the water which is retained by the soil beneath your home. If you want to go that extra mile, then waterproofing may just be the ideal solution for you. This method is much more precise and overs a greater level of flexibility. To get a better understanding regarding which would be better suited to you, give us a call today.

The Right Slope
Once again this is an aspect of planning that we find many of our clients, and surprisingly enough, many of our competitors tend to forget about when they make changes in and around the foundation of a home or office. It does not matter how good your drainage system might be, if the gradient of the slope in and around your property is not taken into account, you will be fighting a never-ending battle very soon, and believe us when we say that gravity will always outlast even your best attempts to correct things.
It Is Extremely Important
The one answer we get from clients when we ask them how they allowed things to get so bad concerning their foundation's drainage system is that they did not think it was that important. They however quickly realize how important these systems are when they are standing in the middle of a partially collapsed, sinking property. We guarantee that there is no worse feeling on earth, and to ensure that you never find yourself in this position, all you have to do is give us a call right away. Our friendly experts are always happy to help.
