Ways to Waterproof Your Basement

Letting water into your basement is a bad idea. That sounds pretty basic, but there are too many basements where this is still an issue. All over the country, flooding damages basements because of cracks, holes, and constant hydrostatic pressure. If your basement isn’t waterproofed right now, your basement could be next.

There are a lot of ways to try to waterproof your basement, but not all of them are equal. Exterior waterproofing uses a rubber liner on the outside of the home’s foundation, usually applied as the house is being built. This requires excavation and if the liners rip anywhere, the entire system needs replaced, at great cost. Other systems use sump pumps, which allow water into the basement, but use a specialized pump to get the water back out. These systems are common, but they only manage basement flooding after it happens, not prevent it. Of all the ways to waterproof your basement, SANI-TRED® products are your best option.

The SANI-TRED® Solution

Of all the ways to waterproof your basement, none are as durable, thorough, and long lasting as SANI-TRED®. SANI-TRED® is a three component liquid rubber waterproofing system that adheres to your concrete, forming a seamless barrier that stops negative hydrostatic pressure before it gets into your home.

PermaFlex™ liquid rubber coating penetrates deep into your concrete substrate, hardening while still maintaining flexibility. This allows PermaFlex™ to stay strong against outside water pressure while still being able to move as the concrete breathes. After the priming coat of PermaFlex™, use LRB (Liquid Rubber Base) and TAV (Thickening Activator) to patch, profile, and repair any imperfections in your concrete. Finish off with a topcoat of PermaFlex™ and you’ll have a seamless coating system that completely and permanently waterproofs your basement. Great for traditional concrete as well as block foundations, SANI-TRED® is the perfect DIY waterproofing system for your basement. Check it out for yourself and protect your basement for the life of the structure.
