Why Waterproofing a Foundation Is So Crucial

A waterproof foundation is vital to the health and safety of your home. Without exterior foundation waterproofing, groundwater can easily find its way into your structure due to the porous nature of your foundation materials (e.g. stone, brick, concrete). And when water gets into your foundation, you'll likely find yourself dealing with problems like mold and mildew growth, foundation cracks, bowed basement walls, musty odors, and humid air.

Needless to say, none of that is good for the well-being of your household.


Thankfully, the specialists at Top Course Masonry have many years of experience waterproofing exterior basement walls and waterproofing foundations. Thus, we know what it takes to assess your foundation issues, pinpoint the weaknesses, and design the right foundation waterproofing system that will provide your structure with ample protection.

Whether you're experiencing foundation leaks, basement floods, or excessive moisture and humidity, you can rely on Top Course Masonry for waterproof foundation solutions that may include:
  • Foundation repairs
    • Crack injections
    • Piering
    • Anchoring
    • Wall replacement
    • Repointing
  • Sump pump installation
  • Exterior drain system
  • Elastomeric membrane with sheet of reinforced polyurethane (preferred method for below-grade foundations)
  • Water-based solution that soaks into the porous masonry and prevents water penetration (preferred method for above-grade foundations)
Importantly, when it comes to waterproofing exterior walls, we can perform all digging and excavation required to complete the job. Having our licensed contractors there for every step of your project, including excavation, leads to greater safety and more consistent, reliable results.
