Waterproofing Fieldstone Foundation Walls

S+H Construction has developed a unique system that revolutionizes waterproofing old fieldstone, brick walled or concrete basements - - from the inside. The three-coat process stops water from coming through the walls using crystals that grow inside the presence of water, filling capillaries in the mortar and concrete, which stops the migration of water! Unlike any other waterproofing system available, S+H's innovative system also enhances the structure and stabilizes stone foundations.

The only caveat is that the entire basement must be waterproofed, not just the area that leaks. If the water is stopped in only one area, it will find its way in through an untreated area. Just like the hull of a boat, the entire envelope must be waterproofed, including the floor, or it will continue to leak.

The end result is a flat stuccoed surface, to the living area. The system is guaranteed to prevent any seepage, which can lead to mold. We have had a decade of success with this method, and can recommend it without hesitation.
