Though you may not realize it, waterproofing your home is one of the most important things you can do to protect its value. There are specific times of the year during which your home will encounter excess levels of water. This may be during months such as April, when rainfall is simply higher than normal, or after the winter season, when the collection of snow on your roof and property begins to melt.
When water leaks into the ground that surrounds your foundation, the soil can become oversaturated. This means the soil cannot hold any more moisture, causing water to seep into new or existing cracks in your foundation. This often leads to personal items being destroyed, dangerous mold and harmful fungus growth, or most significant, a shift in the foundation. This shift can cause structural damage to your home – decreasing its value and causing you to spend money on expensive repairs.
Cracks are the most visible signs of foundation problems, especially stair-shaped cracks in brickwork or blocked foundation. Additionally, cracks extending from windows and doors are also a sign of foundation trouble, as walls that feature openings are the weakest in your home.

We use the Hydraway Drainage System to ensure your home is adequately waterproofed and protected. The following types of waterproofing help remove any existing water that may have seeped into your foundation, while simultaneously ensuring that it stays out for good. The areas we most commonly waterproof for clients are the foundation, the basement or crawlspace, and the walls of the home.
This type of waterproofing is useful for repairing cracks that may have formed in your foundation. We utilize an epoxy or urethane injection system to stop concrete from breaking up further. This also restores the structural strength your home needs to retain its value and more importantly, keep you and your family safe. This method is advantageous as it is inexpensive and offers future waterproofing security.
Hydraway has built a great reputation protecting investments of homeowners through innovative technology in waterproofing. Utilizing a simple four-step process, Hydraway can be installed in your basement or crawlspace and ultimately protects your largest investment.
The Hydraway Drainage System has the capacity to handle 70% more water than other methods. Hydraway will capture water before it enters your basement, relieving hydrostatic pressure and resulting in a dry, comfortable area.
The Hydraway waterproofing system utilizes three components to remove moisture, and keep it out of your home. The components are:
- Hydraway 2000
- Hydraway 300
Hydraway 2000 works to remove water and channel it far away from your home, by working in tandem with Hydraway 300. The Hydraway 300 is situated in the weakest part of your foundation, where the floor meets the footing, to direct water towards the Hydraway 2000. Finally, the Hydrapump directs the water away from your home using a series of exterior pipes. The Hydraway Drainage System is ideal for residences that suffer from poor drainage and leakage issues, but has also been used worldwide in athletic fields, gold courses, yard and landscapes, and highways.
This waterproofing system is designed to keep your home dry. It provides the advantages of removing water 70% faster than standard methods, with the guarantee that it will never clog. To learn more, please call us at 800-223-7015 or fill out our “Contact Us” form for a free estimate.
