This flexible, lightweight sustainable product is ideal for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain tube, also known as drain tile is connected to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. For additional protection you will find Zoeller backup pump options that can be installed into the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is put in the drain line trench to aide in water flow. We then install Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board in the cove place in which the foundation wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and put up the wall and above the trench. It increases water drainage and leads intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile program. After the installation of the Polydrain that the trench is sealed with commercial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Cockeysville solutions can also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked into the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. It’s not difficult to clean, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall regions with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or old structure, Polydrain can be set up full wall or chest elevated. There are also commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings accessible.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Cockeysville Solutions
After evaluation by our inspection team the best solution is to waterproof your basement in the exterior. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls into the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. We simply 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 group to have the excavation place marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you can be sure that the stability of your foundation is in good hands. The depth of the excavation determines what heavy equipment will be necessary to execute the digging.
After the foundation walls have been excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any flaws or cracks.These are patched and repaired 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 that the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane is also set up 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 procedure. After the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped from the 20000 Leaks team to firm the loose soil around the house ‘s foundation.
