Waterproofing the basement walls

Waterproofing the basement walls

Now that the concrete has been poured and the forms removed it is time to "tar" the basement walls so they are water proof. Although this tends to be a nasty job it is important if you want a dry basement. Typically a concrete wall that is covered with "tar" will be dry. The one last thing to do is install perimeter drains that will drain away any ground water. These steps are what keeps a basement dry.
