As qualified foundation builders we know foundation drainage and how it functions from outside when it rains inside when the basement leaks. There might be a number of reasons why there’s water in your basement. Typically your home’s foundation is poured concrete or assembled of CMU or concrete block. Poured foundations tend toward fractures from settling, whereas block foundations are porous and will flow at the joints. Both foundation types could leak because of hydrostatic pressure where the foundation wall joins the basement floor.

What is included when I Waterproof my Basement?
A free evaluation and estimate is always included for any Basement Waterproofing Butler alternative we provide. Our evaluations are comprehensive and thorough. We take into consideration the region on your basement where the water is intruding, check your sump pump’s functioning and walk the outside perimeter of your home to search for areas of further concern. The 20000 Leaks staff will note if your gutters are cleaned, your downspouts are functioning and leaving away from your home’s foundation. We check your window wells and basement stairways and look for any pooling water or sink holes close to your foundation. This information is mentioned by our estimator and can be addressed in their cost quotation where essential.

Our Basement Waterproofing Butler solutions also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain tube, also called drain is connected to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump options which can be installed in 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 put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board in the cove place where the foundation wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and placed up the wall and above the trench. It raises water drainage and leads intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of this Polydrain the trench is sealed with industrial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Butler solutions can also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked in the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. It is not difficult to wash, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall regions with high water content, such as corners, problem areas or old construction, Polydrain can be installed full wall or chest elevated.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Butler Solutions
After analysis by our inspection team the best solution is to waterproof your basement from the outside. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls to the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. Again, we only use professional grade stuff for this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the project Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks group to possess the excavation place marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you can be sure the stability of your foundation is in good hands. The depth of the excavation determines exactly what heavy equipment will be essential to execute the digging.
Following the foundation walls are excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any flaws or cracks.These are patched and mended before applying the Blue skincare primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are critical in the use of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is applied the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable watertight barrier. Prior to backfilling the area, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the process.
