Our Basement Waterproofing Forest Hill solutions also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable merchandise is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain pipe, also known as drain is connected to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it by 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. We then install 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 up the wall and over the trench. It raises water drainage and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of this Polydrain that the trench is sealed with commercial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Forest Hill solutions may also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked in the Polydrain and set up normally from floor to ceiling. It’s easy to clean, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall areas with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain may be set up full wall or chest elevated.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After analysis by our inspection team the best solution is to waterproof your basement in the exterior. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your base walls into the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. We simply use professional grade materials for this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the project Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks team to have the excavation area marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you may be sure that the stability of your base is in good hands. The thickness of the excavation determines exactly what heavy gear will be essential to execute the digging.
Following the base 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 base wall temperatures are critical in the use of both 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 insure an impermeable waterproof 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.
