Basement Waterproofing Solutions
Protecting your house from water damage requires a reliable solution to prevent water intrusion. When the ground surrounding your home’s base is saturated with rainwater, your cellar if not properly waterproofed could flow. As qualified base builders we know foundation drainage and how it functions from outside when it rains to inside once the basement flows. There could be a number of reasons why there’s water in your cellar. Typically your home’s base is either poured concrete or assembled of CMU or concrete block. Poured bases are prone to cracks from settling, whereas block bases are porous and will flow at the mortar joints. Both base types could leak because of hydrostatic pressure where the base wall joins the cellar floor.

Arnold Basement Waterproofing is a guaranteed solution to solve your wet basement problems. Basements can be waterproofed from either the interior or exterior of the base.

What is included when I Waterproof my Basement?
A free evaluation and estimate is always contained for any Arnold Basement Waterproofing solution we supply. Our evaluations are comprehensive and thorough. We take into consideration the area on your cellar where the water is intruding, assess your sump pump’s functioning and walk the outside perimeter of your house to look for areas of additional concern. The 20000 Leaks staff will notice if your gutters are cleaned, your downspouts are working and leaving from your home’s base. We assess your window drains and cellar stairways and try to find any pooling sink or water holes close to your base. This information is noted by our estimator and is addressed in their price quotation where essential. It’s also contained on the job-site checklist that’s shared together with your Arnold Basement Waterproofing installation team.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Systems
We’ve got a comprehensive line of professional grade products to meet all of your Waterproofing needs.

Our cellar waterproofing options also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is ideal for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain tube, also known as drain tile is joined to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it by the ADS pipe. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump options that can be installed into precisely the exact same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is put in the drain trench to aide in water stream. Then we put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board at the cove place where the base wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and put up the wall and over the trench. It increases water and leads intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of the Polydrain the trench is sealed with industrial grade concrete.
Interior Arnold Basement Waterproofing solutions can also include wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked into the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. It’s easy to clean, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall regions with higher water content, like corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain can be installed full wall or chest high.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After analysis by our review team the best solution is to waterproof your basement in the outside. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. Again, we only use professional grade stuff with this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the job Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks team to possess the excavation place marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you can rest assured the stability of your base is in great hands. The thickness of the excavation determines what heavy gear will be essential to execute the digging.
Following the base walls have been excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and repaired before employing the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are crucial in the use of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the area, the membrane should be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the process. Following the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped by the 20000 Leaks staff to firm the loose soil around the home’s base.
