Our Basement Waterproofing Chantilly solutions also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is ideal for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain pipe, also called drain is connected to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. For extra protection there are Zoeller backup pump choices which may be installed in precisely the 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 tech drainage board in the cove area where the base wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and put the wall up and above the trench. It increases water drainage and leads intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile system. After the installation of the Polydrain the trench is sealed with industrial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Chantilly solutions may also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked in the Polydrain and installed normally from floor to ceiling. To get a cleaner appearance and for walls with a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet could be installed. It’s easy to clean, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria development. For wall areas with high water content, like corners, problem areas or older construction, Polydrain may be installed full wall or chest elevated.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Chantilly Solutions
After analysis by our review team the ideal solution may be to waterproof your basement from the exterior. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. Again, we only use professional grade materials for this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the job Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks group to have the excavation area marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you may be sure the stability of your base is in good hands. The depth of the excavation determines what heavy equipment will be necessary to perform the digging.
After the base walls have been excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and mended before applying the Blue skincare primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are critical 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 watertight barrier. Prior to backfilling the surface, the membrane ought to be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the process.
