Our cellar waterproofing solutions also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight sustainable merchandise is ideal for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain tube, also known as drain is joined to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump options which can be installed into precisely the exact same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain trench to aide in water stream. Then we put in Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board at the cove area in which the base wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and placed the wall up and over the trench. It increases water drainage and leads intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of the Polydrain the trench is sealed with commercial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Marriottsville solutions can also include wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked into the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. It’s easy to clean, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mould or bacteria development. For wall areas with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain can be set up complete wall or chest elevated.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Marriottsville Solutions
After analysis by our inspection team the best solution may be to waterproof your basement in the exterior. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof 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 almost any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you can be sure the stability of your base is in good hands. The depth of the excavation determines what heavy gear will be necessary to perform the digging.
Following the base walls are excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and repaired before employing the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are crucial in the use of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is applied 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 shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the procedure.
