Our Basement Waterproofing Fairfax solutions also include 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain tube, also known as drain 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 choices that can be installed in the exact same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is put in the drain trench to aide in water flow. Then we put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board at the cove area where the foundation wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and put the wall up and above the trench. It increases water drainage and directs intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile system. Following the installation of the Polydrain that the trench is sealed with industrial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Fairfax solutions can also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked in the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. It is not difficult to wash, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mould or bacteria growth. For wall regions with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or older construction, Polydrain can be set up complete wall or chest elevated.
After analysis by our inspection team the best solution is to waterproof your basement in the exterior. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls into the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. Again, we simply use professional grade materials with this 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 can rest assured that the stability of your foundation is in good hands. The depth of the excavation determines what heavy equipment will be necessary to perform the digging.
Following the foundation walls have been excavated they are 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 the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day that the primer is applied the self-adhering membrane can be set up on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the surface, the membrane ought to be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the procedure. Following the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped from the 20000 Leaks team to business the loose soil around the home’s foundation.
