Basement wall coatings (fortified cement products)
This Massachusetts basement sealing or basement waterproofing process includes addressing all structural foundation repairs first.
Structural foundation repairs range from setting loose stones and bricks to foundation wall partial rebuilds. If your basement and foundation walls are straight (plumb) then we move on to a thorough inspection of voids and loose masonry, foundation cracks and deteriorated wall joints or plaster coatings.
Filling all masonry voids and removal of the aged lime (soft, flaky, white masonry) joints and then repairing foundation walls with stone and brick pointing is a must in true basement sealing or waterproofing foundations. Only after the foundation is completely repaired (all voids filled, all holes plugged, all water infiltration stopped, all masonry joints repaired, all bricks repaired, all loose masonry set) then do we move on to waterproofing wall coatings.
We use several different fortified cement based products and elastomeric paints to treat basement walls depending on waterproofing requirements and customer request.
Simply attempting to coat walls with sealants without masonry repairs is a futile effort often resulting in very poor results at great cost. Magic sprays and mixtures are no match for traditional masonry coatings and repairs. We repair foundations and waterproof basements the old fashioned way, by hand. We chisel out all failing masonry joints repairing them creating a full repair of your basement and foundation walls.
