Protecting your home from water damage requires a reliable solution to prevent water intrusion. After the floor surrounding your home’s foundation is saturated with rainwater, your cellar if not properly waterproofed could leak. As qualified foundation builders we know foundation drainage and how it works from outside as it rains to inside once the basement leaks. There might be many reasons why there’s water in your cellar. Typically your home’s foundation is poured concrete or assembled of CMU or concrete block. Poured foundations are prone to fractures from settling, whereas block foundations are porous and will leak at the joints. Both foundation types could leak due to hydrostatic pressure where the foundation wall joins the cellar floor.

Our cellar waterproofing solutions also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight sustainable merchandise is excellent for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain pipe, also called drain is connected to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. For extra protection you will find Zoeller backup pump choices which may be installed into the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain trench to aide in water stream. We then put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board in the cove area where the foundation wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and placed up the wall and above the trench. It raises water and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile program. After the installation of this Polydrain that the trench is sealed using commercial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Great Falls solutions may also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked into the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. For a cleaner look and for walls using a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet could be set up. It is easy to wash, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall regions with high water content, like corners, problem areas or old construction, Polydrain may be set up complete wall or chest high. There are also commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings available.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Great Falls Solutions
After analysis by our review team the best solution may be to waterproof your basement from the outside. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls to the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. Again, we simply use professional grade materials for this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the job 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 may rest assured that the stability of your foundation is in great hands. The depth of the excavation determines what heavy gear will be necessary to execute the digging.
After the foundation walls are excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any defects 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 applied the self-adhering membrane can be set up on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable watertight barrier. Before 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 from the 20000 Leaks team to business the loose soil around the home’s foundation.
