Flooding Basements – How To Stop Water

Stone Basement WaterproofingWith the recent excessive snow in the Buffalo, New York area (seven plus feet of the stuff in some areas), people are nervous about how they are going to waterproof their basement as temperatures warm up. Plenty of homeowners are going to be severely disappointed when their basement flooding “protection” fails and they’re left with an expensive mess.

Traditional basement waterproofing consists of letting the water in then pumping the water out (which always just re-enters right where it came from). Doesn’t it make sense to plug the leak? If your boat is taking on water . . . instead of just trying to get the water out wouldn’t a smarter approach be to plug the hole(s) first?

Concrete, concrete block and other masonry products consist of a whole bunch of “holes” . . . whether microscopic holes or larger. These capillaries are typically the method of entry of water into your basement (besides cracks & voids). Our PermaFlex works by deeply penetrating the microscopic holes with a “gasket–like” effect inside of the surface. When vapor moisture pressure is present, the flexible gaskets swell and tighten-up against the inside of tiny holes completely preventing water from getting through (and from the coating ever blowing off).

Cracks and voids are addressed by our Liquid Rubber Base and Thickening Activator products to plug up the larger areas that need to be treated.

We just don’t mitigate water by lessening the amount of water in your basement, we ELIMINATE it using our basement flood protector!  Visit our basement waterproofing page to learn more about the benefits of our Do-It-Yourself basement flooding solution then CONTACT US TODAY to order!

  4. Do I need to repoint the basement rock walls before using this material. Can this be used as substitute for mortar. Thanks

  5. My house is 100 years old. I have some cinder block that has crumbled. When i re-concrete the basement, how does sani-tred work to stop the damage on the outside since you apply it on the inside? If the block is crumbling on the inside isn’t it also damaged below grade on the outside?
