What Is Foundation Waterproofing?
Waterproofing is the prevention of water penetration through the foundation of a home. This can be through the crawl space, basement, garage floor or under the slab. Sometimes water permeation is not visible to the eye, and this is why it is important to regularly have experts test your home and ensure that water damage cannot and will not occur.

How AS Foundation Waterproofs
American Standard Foundation Repair will waterproof your home by manipulating the exterior surroundings in order to move water in a way that does not cause damage to the outer walls both above and below ground. We use french drains, irrigation and piping and other techniques. Not only does this promote the movement of water to a place where it is either useful or non-harmful, waterproofing also can change your landscape to be more beautiful and functional by removing areas where water accumulation occurs.
