Outside Water Deflection In Place of Total Excavation

Outside Excavation Services in Albany, Troy, Schenectady, Saratoga Springs and all of Eastern NY

Kinetic Basement Tip - Most outside major excavation is costly and unsuccessful. It can even make your problem worse. If done improperly, disturbing the soil next to your foundation can allow an influx of water to make contact with the structure. KBS offers many alternatives to major excavation which are less expensive and in many cases, more successful. Let the hydrology experts help you save frustration & money!

If a full excavation is necessary AND if the application or environment is perfect for it, Kinetic Basement has the experience to perform one. However there are hundreds of solutions that may be a better alternative to your water situation. These are just a few:

  • Ditches, colverts and piping
  • Running gutters underground and away from your home
  • Retaining walls
  • Repitching Yard
  • Grading dirt up against foundation
  • Dry wells - outside pumps
  • Window wells and covers

Backfill - Yard grading

  • Pitching dirt next to foundation gets water away!
  • Common failure in home sale inspections

*Free Inspections are for homeowners. The homeowner must be present during the time of the inspection. If the property is on the market or in escrow, a fee will be charged for the inspection to go towards the costs of repairs.


Home gutters are a must, but proper installation is even more important. Improper installation can cause problems and headaches. Basement water professionals know how to get the water at least 15 feet away from home without those ugly pipes running across your yard.

Window Wells/Windows

Kinetic installs both metal and vinyl double pane windows along with the wells. This lets in light and keeps out water on windows subterranean or less than 6” above ground to top of window.

Sometimes minor excavation and site work can fix big problems. Let our experts give you a free estimate on any outside water problem that may be the cause of your home's troubles before you invest a fortune in major outside excavation.

Basement Waterproofing

To save the foundation from deterioration often requires digging up for a purpose of installing new outside footing drains (French Drain Style) and MarFlexing (Liquid Rubber) application to walls at base of footing. This is the best alternative for saving foundation for structural reasons. However, this is not always possible due to the site and does not offer the same warranty that we can give with our indoor water systems.

What is Marflex, and how is it part of our outdoor water systems?
Kinetic would first dig up the area to be repaired down to below footing wall. We would then pressure wash the wall at 4000 lbs of pressure to expose the pores of the concrete. One to two coats of liquid rubber MarFlex would be applied with a driveway tar brush and hard brush, leaving behind what looks like a black pool liner glued to your wall. At footing area we always put 2 coats and install French Drain using Grate Drain piping with large holes and drainage stone. After installation, sand is used to within 18” of surface and top soil is used to encapsulate system for surface water back graded pitching.
