Basement Waterproofing Services

Unless basements are waterproofed, they are vulnerable to water intrusion. Saturated soil conditions will often lead to leaks at the following locations: 
  • Where the foundation wall meets the floor
  • Through cracks in the foundation wall & floor
  • Over the top of the foundation & window sills

Sub-Floor Drainage Systems

Dewater the soil below the basement.

This is the principle behind the Boccia Inc. patented Hollow Kick Molding drainage system which has eliminated thousands of flooded basements across the nation and is guaranteed for the life of the structure. Our uniquely designed drainage systems are filtered to prevent clogging and will positively last the life of the structure. Whereas other companies have created short-cuts, Boccia inc. still provides the quality of deep installations providing dryer basements. Systems installed at or near the floor are inferior as they allow water to contact the concrete floor slab.

Boccia inc. pioneered the concept of proper basement drainage design and continues to install the best drainage system on the market.


Exterior Foundation Wall Waterproofing

Boccia inc. provides exterior foundation waterproofing systems that are unparalleled. 50 years of experience in solving the most challenging foundation conditions is testimony to a tried and true method for maximum protection against lateral water infiltration through basement foundation walls. Most other waterproofing companies will not execute the exterior method of waterproofing and the ones that do are likely to offer a thin liquid applied system. Boccia Inc provides a 3 ply trowel grade reinforced membrane system that has set the standard for the most aggressive membrane that money can buy. While others have opted for an easier system applied by rollers or paint brushes, Boccia has maintained this standard for hand troweled
applications with attention to every detail.

Sill Plate Waterproofing

The wood sill plate is located at the top of the basement foundation wall. This critical junction between the concrete foundation wall and the wood framing should be perched up out of the ground (a minimum of 6" by code). When this sill plate is below grade, water can flow over it and into the basement.

It is not uncommon for people to try to resolve water problems by "re-grading." Though it might be comforting to think that paying the landscaper a few hundred dollars to bring some soil in and slope the dirt away from the house, it can be extremely destructive to the wood frame structure. Boccia inc. can resolve this condition by removing the dirt that is the problem and installing proper drainage.

A Boccia Inc. proprietary Sill Plate Waterproofing System is designed to both seal and drain this location.

Foundation Crack Injection

Basement foundation walls are typically fabricated from cementitious materials which are subject to cracking. These cracks are openings into the basement that water could pass through. Boccia Inc. utilizes the most effective epoxy and urethane products injected under pressure into and behind these cracks sealing them against any further water intrusion.

Crawl Space Waterproofing

Damp and dirty crawls spaces can be hazardous to your health.Unhealthy crawl space air is mixed with the air in the basement and makes its way up to higher floor levels. It is imperative that these dank crawl spaces are cleaned and kept dry. New information on when to vent has confused homeowners and contractors alike. Boccia inc. has knowledge to properly evaluate crawl spaces and propose solutions for the various conditions that exist and can provide proper drainage, dehumidification and a new concrete floor to rectify
poor crawl space conditions. Boccia inc. can properly disinfectant
and apply anti-microbial coatings as may be required. We are
uniquely qualified to clean up and dry out crawl spaces.

Foundation Wall Panels

Trapping moisture in the foundation by painting basement walls can lead to trouble. Often the concrete will start to crumble creating structural failure of the wall. Mechanically fastening a specially designed vinyl wall system to the wall will allow the foundation to "breathe". Any wall moisture will be directed down into the sub-floor drainage system.

Humidity Control

Even after the basement flooding problems have been corrected elevated humidity levels could still wreak havoc in the basement environment promoting mold growth. Replacing the air in the basement with expensively conditioned air from other parts of the house is not the solution. Boccia Inc. Dehumidification Systems will automatically control the humidity in the basement. The systems are properly sized for the application and often do not need require maintenance or draining.

Structural Foundation Repairs

Wet basements often lead to structural distress in buildings. The weight of the wet soil exerted on the basement walls can cause structural cracks. Through the years we have inspected foundations that have cracked like egg shells, homes that have slipped off foundation walls and foundation walls that have simply caved in.

Boccia inc. has the unique qualifications to evaluate foundation cracks and stabilize foundation walls. We can reinforce walls through a variety of techniques, underpin walls, or rebuild walls if required. Boccia inc. can stabilize beams that have been destroyed by termite activity or replace beams if necessary.

Mold can lead to wood decay (wood rot) creating the need to sister floor joists and rotted sill plates. Boccia inc. can evaluate your structural problems. Our affiliate engineering company (www.EBIPC.com) can develop design drawings if required.
