What we do:
C&G Concrete is a family owned business and have been concrete contractors for over 2 decades. In addition to our concrete work we offer a full foundation waterproofing service.
If you have a leaky basement there is no need to worry. There is always a solution to stop water from entering your home – often more than one. The most common waterproofing methods are External Waterproofing and installation of an Internal Waterproofing System.
- Exterior Waterproofing – This method of waterproofing consists of excavating the exterior perimeter of your foundation. Next a thorough cleaning and inspection of your foundation walls is performed. Following the inspection, several layers of waterproofing membranes are applied; the types of membranes needed vary depending on the type of foundation. The existing sub-drain is then inspected and replaced if necessary. The final step is to backfill and complete landscape restoration.
- Internal Waterproofing – This method is used when exterior waterproofing is not practical, or on block or stone foundations. To install the Internal Waterproofing System, the perimeter of the basement floor is removed, approximately 35-40 CM (15 inches) wide. A sub-drain is then installed along the footing and surrounded with clear stone. This sub-drain is the same as the drain on the outside of the footing, but is now installed on the inside. Finally a dimpled membrane is fastened to the wall to direct water into the sub-drain and the concrete floor is replaced.
- Foundation Crack Repair - This is a smaller repair than the other two methods and is often the most economical way to fix a leaking crack. Cracks are chiseled out and filled with the most advanced and effective waterproofing compounds providing a completely sealed surface.
