Our Basement Waterproofing Products

We offer a variety of different waterproofing products to provide our customers with the best basement waterproofing solutions in Erie, northwestern Pennsylvania and western New York. Each product serves a specific purpose and can work independently or can connect with other products for a complete basement waterproofing system.

Basement Drainage System

A basement drainage system can be installed along the perimeter of your basement to protect it from water damage. We use the Hydraway Drainage System to collect at the wall and floor joint, which is generally the source of the problem.

It is a compact track that can be installed quickly for minimal disruption to your basement and ultimate protection from water damage. The unique Hydraway Drainage System utilizes a special filter fabric that water passes through before being conveyed to an outlet pipe. This method of residential waterproofing allows for a higher inflow rate than traditional pipe drainage systems and therefore allows more water to escape, reducing hydrostatic pressure around your foundation. 

What is hydrostatic pressure and how does our drainage system relieve it?

Hydrostatic pressure is essentially the weight of the water saturating the soil. Water weighs about 8.5 pounds per gallon and one inch of rain falling on one acre of ground is about 27,154 gallons of water, equal to about 113 tons of water. The average plot size for a home is .20 acres, so you can expect about 22 tons of water to fall on and around your home per inch of rain that falls. The Hydraway Drainage System works to pull that water out of the soil around your home and carry it elsewhere so you won’t have thousands of pounds of pressure against your foundation. 

Waterproof Wall Panels

One of our best tools for repairing wet and leaky basements in the Erie area is our waterproof wall panels. These panels not only protect your basement from water damage, but they can also cover up those unsightly concrete walls and give your basement a more finished look.

Our team installs the DryShield Waterproof Wall Panels to prevent any leaks or seepage from water and provide a complete waterproof barrier for your basement. Waterproof wall panels can quickly be installed to provide the ultimate protection for your basement while making it more visually appealing.

Vapor Barrier

Vapor barrier installation is a great way to protect your basement from water damage. It is a quick installation that can instantly provide complete water protection.

We use the WhiteCap Vapor Barrier, which is a heavy-duty liner that is waterproof, puncture-proof, and provides a nice bright finish to transform your basement. We believe vapor barrier installation is a key part of any basement waterproofing.
