Our Basement Waterproofing solutions also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is ideal 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 by the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump with a 1-” PVC discharge line is set up by the 20000 Leaks team into the sump basin. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump choices that may be installed in precisely the exact same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain trench to aide in water flow. We then put in Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board in the cove place where the foundation wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and placed the wall up and above the trench. It increases water and directs intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile program. After the installation of this Polydrain that the trench is sealed with commercial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Fairfax County solutions may also include things like wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked in the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. It’s easy to clean, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mould or bacteria growth. For wall regions with high water content, like corners, problem areas or older construction, Polydrain may be set up complete wall or chest high.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Fairfax County Solutions
After analysis by our inspection team the ideal solution may be to waterproof your basement from the exterior. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls into the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. We simply use professional grade stuff for this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the job Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks team to have the excavation place marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you may rest assured that the stability of your foundation is in great hands. The depth of the excavation determines what heavy equipment will be essential to perform the digging.
After the foundation walls are excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and repaired before employing the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are crucial in the use of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The identical day that the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane is also set up on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable watertight barrier. Prior to backfilling the surface, the membrane should be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the procedure. After the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped by the 20000 Leaks team to business the loose soil around the home’s foundation.
