Atlantic Coast is waterproofing Michigan basements one home at a time. Each job that we do receives the proper inspection, diagnosis and quality workmanship that the customer deserves. Our waterproofing solutions are permanent and are not designed to try and stop water but are engineered so we can carry the water away. The key to this fact is that you need to be able to move the water away faster then it is received.

The Truth About Intial Waterproofing
Almost all foundations are sub-contracted to only a few contractors that build them. The contractors that are building a foundation at the beginning of the week for a fifty thousand dollar home are the same contractors at the end of the week building a foundation for a two million dollar home. Therefore the myth that the more expensive the house is the better the foundation is built, is only a myth. Contrary to popular belief, both basements are built the same way.
Surprisingly in most cities and towns, the building codes for waterproofing have not changed since they were written fifty to sixty years ago. This gives the builder basically carte blanche on how he wants to waterproof.
There have been many innovations in products developed by the manufacturers to improve the standards of waterproofing however they have never been set to code. Most of these products are never used on the forefront of initial waterproofing because of higher material cost and the builders eighteen month limited warranty on basement leaks.
Many of the foundations we have inspected, may have never seen water had the builder installed dual draining systems. This application allows for water removal from under the home as well as around it.

The weight of built up water under and around your foundation that begins to push the water through the seams of your basement.
cracks and leaks
Water that enters through foundation cracks can be a sure sign that the previous waterproofing has failed. Understanding your cracks is of great importance to be able to waterproof properly.
History of waterproofing
The invention of the 4" perforated drainage pipe didn't enter the building industry until 1970. Terra cotta ceramic clay tile pipe was the premier choice prior to this time and era.
Deteriorates value and can cause health (some serious) issues. Mold will start growing in the dampest and darkest places where we don’t usually see, so by the time it’s actually visible to you it has been growing for quite some time.
Choosing the right system for your specific needs will ensure your basement is protected. We will assess the situation and best solution for your needs.
