Applied Waterproofing in Massachusetts and Rhode Island

Are you looking for a proactive approach to preventing water damage and moisture-related issues in your basement? Drycrete Waterproofing offers applied waterproofing services in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

What is applied Waterproofing for Your Basement?

Applied waterproofing involves the use of specific materials that are designed to withstand hydrostatic pressure, adhere to your foundation walls, and provide a long-lasting protective coating. The benefits include:
Protection against Water Intrusion

Basements are prone to water intrusion, especially in areas with high water tables or heavy rainfall. Applied products create a barrier that helps prevent water from seeping through the foundation walls, keeping your basement dry and free from water damage.

Prevention of Mold and Mildew
Moisture in basements can create an ideal environment for mold and mildew growth. Applied waterproofing products help to control moisture levels, reducing the risk of mold and mildew formation. This is crucial for maintaining a healthy indoor environment and preventing respiratory issues associated with mold exposure.
Preservation of Structural Integrity

Excessive moisture can deteriorate the structural integrity of your basement over time. Applied waterproofing products help to protect the foundation walls from water damage, including cracks, erosion, and weakening. By preventing water penetration, applied waterproofing preserves the strength and stability of your basement.

Long-Term Cost Savings
Investing in applied waterproofing products for your basement can save you money in the long run. By preventing water damage and the need for costly repairs, you can avoid potential expenses associated with structural repairs, mold remediation, or replacing damaged belongings.

applied Waterproofing as a system or stand alone

Applied products can be used on their own or as part a larger system with more comprehensive waterproofing methods such as French drains and sump pumps. By combining applied products with complementary methods, you create a multi-layered defense against water infiltration, giving yourself layers of insurance against water damage.

As a standalone product applied waterproofing is particularly effective for moderate moisture issues or as a preventive measure to avoid future water-related problems. They offer a cost-effective solution, making them a popular choice for homeowners looking to waterproof their basements.

What Applied Products does Drycrete Waterproofing Use?

Drylok Extreme:

Drylok Extreme is a high-performance waterproofing product designed to provide exceptional protection against moisture intrusion. It is commonly used for interior basement walls, where the primary goal is to control moisture and prevent water seepage from the inside.
Drylok Extreme is designed to withstand hydrostatic pressure and can withstand up to 15 PSI (pounds per square inch) of water pressure while still allowing moisture vapors to escape.

Crystalline Waterproofing Membrane:

Crystalline waterproofing is a cementitious waterproofing product that penetrates concrete and chemically reacts to form crystals, blocking capillary pores and microcracks. This product provides long-lasting waterproofing and can withstand high hydrostatic pressure.
One of the greatest features of crystalline waterproofing is its ability to self-heal. If new cracks develop in the concrete over time, the crystalline technology allows the coating to reactivate and form new crystals, sealing the cracks and maintaining the integrity of the waterproofing barrier.
Due to these self-healing characteristics, crystalline waterproofing has also been shown to support the structural integrity of concrete over time.
