Meeting the Challenge

Protecting Foundations

The structural integrity of building foundations, whether deep or shallow, can be seriously compromised by hydrostatic pressure and water leakages associated with high water tables. Inadequate waterproofing, cracking and joint failure are problems that will result in the deterioration of concrete and the leaking of water into the substructure. In the short term, this can lead to the loss of sub-structure functionality and, over time, the structural weakening of the building itself.
