A case Study of Failure
Our goal at Foundation Technology, is to eliminate the water and the corrosive effects it can cause to your structure.
Unfortunately waterproofing failures are often overlooked until damage has become extensive. Design professionals tend to hear less about them until many years after the corrosive damage has begun its process.
Effective and permeant solutions may require multiple visits to determine and eliminate all water intrusion sources. This may also require a combination of systems, including injection through floors/walls , topical or saturation coatings, and even water extraction pumps and Educator wells.
