Basement Waterproofing Glen Arm Basement Solutions
Protecting your house from water damage requires a trusted solution to prevent water intrusion. When the ground surrounding your house’s foundation is saturated with rainwater, your basement if not properly waterproofed could flow. As qualified foundation builders we understand foundation drainage and the way it functions from outside as it rains inside when the basement leaks. There might be many reasons why there’s water in your basement. Typically your house’s foundation is either poured concrete or constructed of CMU or concrete block. Poured bases are prone to cracks from settling, whereas block bases are porous and will flow at the mortar joints. Both foundation types could leak due to hydrostatic pressure where the foundation wall joins the basement floor. Following a thorough evaluation, our foundation specialists will offer a comprehensive Basement Waterproofing Glen Arm solution to keep your basement dry and protect your house from further water damage.

Our Basement Waterproofing Glen Arm options also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight sustainable product is ideal for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain pipe, also called drain tile is connected 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 release line is set up by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For extra protection there are Zoeller backup pump options that 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 at the cove area where the foundation wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and put the wall up and above the trench. It raises water and leads intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of this Polydrain the trench is sealed with commercial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Glen Arm solutions may also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked in the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. For a cleaner appearance and for walls with a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet could be set up. It’s easy to wash, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria development. For wall areas with high water content, such as corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain may be set up full wall or chest elevated.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Glen Arm Solutions
After analysis by our review team the best solution may be to waterproof your basement from the outside. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. We only use professional grade materials with this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the job Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks team to possess the excavation area marked for almost any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you may rest assured the stability of your foundation is in great hands. The thickness of the excavation determines exactly what heavy equipment will be essential to execute 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 employing 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 the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane can be set up on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable waterproof barrier. Before backfilling the area, the membrane should be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the process.
