Protecting your home from water damage takes a reliable remedy to prevent water intrusion. After the ground surrounding your house ‘s base is saturated with rain, your basement if not properly waterproofed may leak. As qualified base builders we understand foundation drainage and how it works from outside when it rains inside when the basement flows. There might be a number of reasons why there’s water in your basement. Typically your house ‘s base is either poured concrete or assembled of CMU or concrete block. Poured bases are prone to fractures from settling, whereas block bases are porous and will leak at the joints. Both base types could leak due to hydrostatic pressure in which the base wall joins the basement floor.

Our Basement Waterproofing Howard County solutions also include 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain pipe, also called drain is joined to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump with a 1-” PVC discharge line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team into the sump basin. For extra protection there are Zoeller backup pump choices which may be installed into the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.

River wash gravel is put in the drain trench to aide in water flow. We then put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board at the cove place in which the base wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and put up the wall and above the trench. It increases water and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile program. After the installation of the Polydrain that the trench is sealed with commercial grade concrete.

Interior Basement Waterproofing Howard County solutions may also include wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked into the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. To get a cleaner look and for walls with a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet can be installed. It is easy to wash, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria development. For wall regions with high water content, such as corners, problem areas or older construction, Polydrain may be installed full wall or chest high.

Exterior Basement Waterproofing Howard County Solutions

After evaluation by our inspection team the best solution is to waterproof your basement in the exterior. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. We simply use professional grade materials with this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.

Before starting the job Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks team to possess the excavation place marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you may rest assured that the stability of your base is in great hands. The depth of the excavation determines what heavy equipment will be necessary to execute the digging.

After the base walls are 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 base wall temperatures are critical in the application of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day that the primer is applied the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable watertight barrier. Before backfilling the area, the membrane ought to be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the process.
