Why Does This Happen?
When the pipes, conduits, and air ducts are installed in your home, usually during initial construction, they may only be sealed with some sort of temporary or inadequate patch. Over time, this seal breaks, and allows water to seep in around the pipes.
If water is pooling against the side of your home, or rising up due to hydrostatic pressure, then it will look for the path of least resistance. Pipe penetrations can sometimes be the weak point.
Direct Waterproofing can provide a solution for leaking pipe penetration. We use epoxy resin injections, or urethane injections, in order to create a fully waterproof seal, as well as giving structure to the area, and filling the whole gap. This is the same solution we use for repairing cracks in your foundations.

Pipes, vents, ducts, and conduits are all required to enter the building at some point in order to connect your home to services like gas and water. But these pipe penetrations can create vulnerable spots where water can get in.
