Waterproof Solution for Garage

by | Apr 5, 2021

Today’s Waterproof Problem

In today’s video, we’re looking at a garage damaged by a settling foundation, caused by excess moisture.

The Waterproof Solution

We’ll put four piers in the garage to prevent further damage. There are cracks in the walls caused by the settling. So we’ll add carbon fiber to stop the cracks from progressing. And all of that should take care of the damage already done.

If we look outside the garage, we can see that the problem is that the guttering leads to a black pipe which drains into the ground near the foundation. This is the cause of our problem.

What we will do is use PVC pipe to redirect the drainage from the gutters to a dry well about 10 feet away from the house. We’ll fill the hole and this will keep the water from coming back into the garage.

This is our “why” for keeping the gutters clean.

And that’s also why we have this business.

So at the end of the day, this is all very fixable.
