Protecting your home from water damage takes a reliable solution to stop water intrusion. After the ground surrounding your house ‘s foundation is saturated with rainwater, your cellar should not properly waterproofed could flow. As qualified foundation builders we know foundation drainage and the way it functions from outside when it rains inside when the basement flows. There might be many reasons why there’s water in your cellar. Typically your house ‘s foundation is either poured concrete or constructed of CMU or concrete block. Poured bases tend toward fractures from settling, whereas block bases are porous and can flow at the joints. Both foundation types could leak due to hydrostatic pressure in which the foundation wall joins the cellar floor.

What is included when I Waterproof my Basement?
A free evaluation and estimate is always included for any Anne Arundel County Basement Waterproofing alternative we supply. Our tests are comprehensive and thorough. We take into account the region in your cellar where the water is intruding, assess your sump pump’s operation and walk the outside perimeter of your home to search for areas of further concern. The 20000 Leaks team will notice if your gutters are cleaned, your downspouts are working and exiting away from your house ‘s foundation. We assess your window drains and cellar stairways and look for any pooling water or sink holes near your foundation. This information is mentioned by our estimator and can be addressed in their cost quotation where necessary. It is also included on the job-site checklist which is shared with your Anne Arundel County Basement Waterproofing installment team.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Systems
We’ve got a complete line of professional grade products to fulfill all of your Waterproofing requirements.
- Surface Preparation
- Waterproofing Membrane
- Drainage Board
- Protection Board
This flexible, lightweight sustainable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain tube, also called drain tile is joined to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump using a 1-” PVC release line is set up by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For extra protection there are Zoeller backup pump choices that may be installed into precisely the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain line trench to aide in water flow. We then install Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board at the cove area in which the foundation wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and placed the wall up and above the trench. It increases water and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile system. After the installation of the Polydrain the trench is sealed using industrial grade concrete.
Interior Anne Arundel County Basement Waterproofing solutions may also include wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked into the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. It is easy to wash, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mould or bacteria growth. For wall regions with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain may be set up complete wall or chest elevated. There are also commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings available.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After analysis by our inspection team the ideal solution may be to waterproof your basement in the outside. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. We only use professional grade materials for this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the project Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks team to have the excavation area marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you may rest assured the stability of your foundation is in great hands. The thickness of the excavation determines exactly what heavy equipment will be necessary to perform the digging.
After the foundation walls are excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any flaws or cracks.These are patched and mended before applying the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are crucial in the application of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is applied the self-adhering membrane can be set up on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable waterproof barrier. Before backfilling the area, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the procedure.
