The buildings foundation is important and so if it is having problems; it may pose danger to those living in it and a possible financial loss to the owner.  The main sources of problems to most buildings are the foundations. Wet soil and moisture can make your building swell and become unstable. Luckily, this can be avoided by using the right waterproofing product, which  can keep away water vapour and liquids from your building.  Keeping water drained away from the concrete as well as preventing it from moving through the concrete is key for a strong structure.  To do this, you may consider doing the following:

  • Draining and redirecting water ways away from your building using concrete moisture sealers
  • Treating the walls or concrete with the appropriate product so that you can route the water a drain away from the building
  • Treat the entire ground surface adjacent to the building so that you direct the water away from your structures.

Note that it is important you do this in the right manner since you may not get an opportunity to do it another time.

In some severe cases, it can lead to litigation.
