Our Basement Waterproofing Towson options also include 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain pipe, also known as drain tile is joined to a polyethylene sump basin that 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 you will find Zoeller backup pump choices that may be installed into the exact same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain line trench to aide in water stream. Then we install Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board in the cove place where the base wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and placed the wall up and above the trench. It raises water and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile system. Following the installation of this Polydrain the trench is sealed with industrial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Towson 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. It’s easy to clean, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall areas with high water content, like corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain may be installed full wall or chest high. Additionally, there are commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings available.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After analysis by our inspection team the best solution may be to waterproof your basement in the outside. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your base walls into the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. Again, 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 have the excavation place marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you may rest assured the stability of your base is in good hands. The thickness of the excavation determines exactly what heavy gear will be essential to perform the digging.
Following the base walls have been excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and mended before employing the Blue skincare primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are critical in the application of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The identical day the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable waterproof barrier. Before backfilling the surface, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the procedure. Following the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped from the 20000 Leaks staff to firm the loose soil around the home’s base.
