A cove joint is the area where the basement floor meets the wall section. In over 50% of cases basements are preinstalled with 2 slabs: the floor slab and then the wall slab during the concrete pour of construction. If you do not have a waterproofing system set up in your basement, you can suffer from leaks going in and through the small openings. Constant change in the soil puts pressure on the basement walls and floors which pushing water and moisture in through the cove joint- especially during the rainy and snow-thawing seasons. The leaks can start small and if left untreated can become larger as concrete deterioration occurs and more soil/water pressure continues to build up.

Solutions: Methods For Fixing Leaky Cove Joints

Many of our competitors believe that the best solution to leaking cove joints is to seal off the cove joint. However, at Denver Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing, we feel this will cause a lot more harm than good. When you seal this area off, the increased hydrostatic pressure created from the changing water table will continue to put extreme amounts of pressure on the joint. The seal will eventually break and you will find water in your basement once again.

Any one of our systems will fix this problem and will be decided depending on the severity of water. Each system we carry ranges from extreme cases of basement leaks to minor seepage problems.
