Here at Wet Seal Waterproofing we do a number of things that will prevent water seepage into your home from the outside. We extend downspouts to ensure that all water is properly rerouted away from your foundation. In some cases water can puddle in dips and swells in your yard. In this case you may need a catch basin to redirect any puddling. Any puddling water near and around your foundation is a potential risk of water seepage.

down spoutIn some instances driveways and dirt grade slope toward your house inviting rain water to enter your garage or carport. This can cause major foundation settlement not only to your foundation but to your slab as well. To avoid this problem it is best to install an outdoor channel drain that catches any storm water run off before it enters any cracks or causes any settlement.

Sometimes needing to be excavated completely and install a retaining wall to hold up surrounding soil. Wet Seal only installs the best and never settles for less. It is always recommended using stone, block or concrete retaining walls. Wooden retaining walls and rail road ties are never recommended.
