WallSeal™ Basement Wall Vapor Barrier

The idea that basements are destined to be damp is a big misconception. A damp basement actually poses serious risks to your home and family, but there is a solution.  

Our AquaStop WallSeal™ Basement Wall Vapor Barrier, when integrated with our advanced waterproofing solutions, delivers unmatched moisture resistance for your basement.  

As leaders in the basement waterproofing industry, Foundation Systems of Michigan utilizes a high-grade vapor barrier to shield your home from potential water damage.

What is the AquaStop WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier?

AquaStop WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier is a heavy-duty 120-mil thick sheeting, specifically engineered to stop moisture infiltration through your basement walls. 

This barrier is securely anchored to the walls, channeling any seepage into our superior AquaStop BasementGutter™ interior drainage system, providing instant protection for damp walls. This top-tier vapor barrier is an important element in our whole-home approach. 

Integrating a vapor barrier with other waterproofing solutions such as a sump pump and a dehumidifier, strengthens your home and adds value.

A vapor barrier could be pivotal if you encounter: 

Ignoring these warning signs or postponing repairs could result in severe damage and health issues.  

Foundation Systems of Michigan offers free professional inspections and custom solutions when these issues arise in your basement. 

Is a Basement Wall Vapor Barrier Necessary? 

In many cases, yes. A basement wall vapor barrier is vital for a complete basement waterproofing strategy. Your inspector will let you know if your unique basement will benefit from a vapor barrier or not.  

Moisture can infiltrate even through seemingly intact walls due to the porous nature of concrete, leading to unseen water damage and making subsequent repairs more difficult and expensive. 

Address this issue proactively by installing the AquaStop WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier, an important feature in our comprehensive approach to keeping your home dry and healthy.
