BASEMENTS

Most old structures built before 1910 have brick or stone foundations: under normal circumstances, any moisture entering the masonry wall should be able to evaporate. Use of waterproofing materials, such as cement plasters, synthetic paints, and hard cement mortars prevents moisture to evaporate. This causes the foundation walls decay: brick, stone, and mortar deterioration, leaks, efflorescence and mold build ups.

Basement restoration involves removal of all previously applied waterproofing products and repairing the walls using traditional materials that allow the walls to “breath” again.
