What Are Your Waterproofing Options?

Waterproofing is an important part of any home—and although Metro Home & Waterproofing typically waterproofs homes that are being constructed, we recognize the importance of it at any stage of a home’s life.

If you’re trying to figure out different waterproofing solutions to make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable, all year long, we hope this blog post helps. Professional waterproofing contractors will be able to assess your situation and determine the right solutions for your home, but it always helps to have some information beforehand!

Types of Waterproofing

Three common methods for waterproofing homes are:

  • Waterproofing membranes
  • Drain tile
  • Foundation insulation

We offer all three types.

Waterproofing Membranes

The GMX waterproofing membranes by GMX that we install are designed to bridge shrinkage cracks and seal out water penetration. These spray-applied waterproofing solutions provide a seamless, flexible polymer-enhanced membrane that are among the best in the industry.

Foundation Insulation

Insulation should be installed in all areas of a home—and this includes the foundation! Insulating a home’s foundation helps keep moisture out and improves overall energy efficiency, no matter the season. The team at Metro Home Insulation installs:

  • DiversiFoam Products CertiFoam
  • DiversiFoam Products CertiStud

Drain Tile

Drain tile is another type of waterproofing. Many of us live in a slight slope rather than completely flat ground, and in these cases drain tile is even more important. After all, water moves horizontally through soil. Installed correctly, drain tile effectively keeps water away from your home’s foundation and basement or crawl space. There are also interior drain tile options where the drainage system is installed on the perimeter of the inside of the basement. We install socked interior and exterior drain tile, and our team also offers basement insulation, which is just as important as waterproofing solutions!
