Bulkhead Installation and waterproofing in Massachusetts and Rhode Island

Bulkheads, also known as basement doors or cellar doors, are a type of exterior access point to a basement or lower-level space in a building. Bulkheads are a common source of water intrusion issues for basements in Massachusetts and Rhode Island and if installed improperly can lead to moisture issues and flooding. Drycrete Waterproofing can help solve that problem with expert bulkhead installation and waterproofing.

Common Bulkhead Issues:

Leaking Bulkhead
Water leakage through the bulkhead doors or seals. This can lead to water entering the basement or lower-level space, potentially causing water damage, mold growth, and structural deterioration.
Cracks in the Bulkhead Walls
Cracks or fractures in the walls surrounding the bulkhead. These cracks can weaken the structural integrity of the bulkhead enclosure and allow moisture to penetrate, leading to further deterioration and potential leakage.
Leaking Cold Joints
Cold joints are formed when new concrete is poured against previously cured concrete. If these joints aren’t properly sealed, water can infiltrate through the seams, causing water intrusion and potential damage.
Poor Grading
Improper slope or grading around the bulkhead landing can cause water to pool near the entrance. This can lead to water infiltration into the basement and erosion of the surrounding soil, affecting the stability of the bulkhead area.
Masonry Damage
Damage to the masonry materials (such as bricks or stones) used to construct the bulkhead walls. This damage can compromise the structural integrity of the walls and create openings for water to enter.
