Basement Waterproofing Experts
Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure that is exerted by a fluid at equilibrium at a given point within the fluid, due to the force of gravity. Hydrostatic pressure increases in proportion to depth measured from the surface because of the increasing weight of fluid exerting downward force from above. Foundation waterproofing eliminates both water seepage and moisture transpiration through the foundation walls. This process requires excavation of the foundation to the bottom of the building’s footing. Foundation cracks, holes and penetrations are repaired with a hydraulic cement to patch or bridge the concrete and allow a smooth surface for the installation of a waterproofing membrane. AM Shield utilizes both trowel grade and heat spray-applied membranes.
