Complete Basement Water Proofing

Basement Waterproofing

Van Rite Trucking & Excavating permanently and economically fixes foundations using over 25 years of expert knowledge regarding the Greater Green Bay area soils with proven local experience. Every foundation is unique and requires special inspection to restore the structural integrity to buildings and residential foundations. Also repairing sinking, sagging, settling, cracked, bowing, and damaged foundations.

The settling and shifting of foundations can often be caused by building a structure on expanding or contracting soil due to freezing water, improperly compacted fill soils, or from poor maintenance of the dirt around the building's foundation. Whatever the cause of a troublesome settling foundation, this settlement can ruin a building's value and even render it unsafe

Exterior Waterproofing

To be sure water never enters your foundation, we believe in stopping the water from ever coming incontact with your walls:
  • Exterior waterproofing prevents water from entering foundation walls therefore preventing the wicking and molding of building materials.
  • Waterproofing a structure from the exterior is the only method the IBC (International Building Code) recognizes as adequate to prevent structural damage caused by water intrusion.
  • Waterproofing an existing basement begins with excavating to the bottom sides of the footings. Once excavated, the walls are then sealed with a waterproofing membrane and new drain tile is placed along the side of the footing and into a sump pump pit. By the time you’ve begun to notice bowing or buckling in your basement walls, there’s a good chance that this situation has been present for a long time. owing walls occur most often due to the force of hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure occurs when water presses against the basement walls, causing the weight against the walls to exceed their capacity. Walls can also bow and fail when expansive clays or frost cause expansion of the soils to fatigue and damage the wall. Cracking, bowing, and buckling foundations are indicators of a serious problem for a homeowner.
Steel Beam Foundation Reinforcement

To install steel beam foundation support, the floor along the foundation walls must be jacked where the beams will be placed. The beams are then installed and bolted to the wooden floor joist above. The pressure bearing against the wall is transferred to the wood floor joist. With the exterior waterproofing method, the heavy clay and fill excavated. We fill the exterior perimeter of the foundation with drainage stone. There is less hydrostatic pressure and a clear trench for the water to enter the sump pump with ease.
