Long Island, NY Waterproofing Services
If there’s one factor involving Mother Nature that may be a danger to your building or home’s structure, its water. Water can cause a number of serious issues. Although they may not appear to be serious at the moment, they could end up being catastrophic in the future if not cared for. Waterproofing is a service All Counties Roofing provides to seal off all entry points of water to the interior of your building. It doesn’t just involve us working outside; we also apply material on the interiors. Our experts will make sure that there is water repellant not only outside of your building but behind it’s materials as well. We focus on every creak and crevice we can get our hands on including corners, spandrels, lintels, columns, window jambs, headers, sills and the exterior moldings found outside of buildings.
Unfortunately, no building materials are impervious to the effects of weathering. In Nassau County and Suffolk County, buildings will almost certainly face extreme temperatures and wind during the winter. These will inevitably create cracks which will allow water to enter at some point in the future. We use all different types of sealants to keep water, and chemicals out and stand up to the harshest conditions. Building waterproofing can prevent:
- Damage to building structure/foundation
- Pests and other insects from entering and infesting
Long Island Basement Waterproofing Services
Basement waterproofing is an important component in any residential or commercial property. For financial and living related reasons, it’s very important that this is utilized. There’s nothing worse than walking into a wet basement. Flooding can occur for a variety of reasons. These include:
- Your property is located on level terrain but there’s a significant lack of drainage
- Foundation Cracks
- Downspout runoff
- Basement window leaks
- The water level around your property is higher relative to your foundation
- Failure of the foundation drains (weeping tiles)
- Failure of a sump pump
- A blocked connection between your basement’s pipes and the main sewer
A wet basement can produce strong odors, insect infestations (from termites, carpenter ants & water bugs), and a lower property valuation. You can definitely trust us to seal up every possible crack, crevice and install a system that works for you. Unless basements are waterproofed properly, leaks will happen where the foundation meets the floor, through cracks in the foundation wall and floor, and over the top of the foundation and next to window sills.
