Bethesda Basement Waterproofing Solutions
Protecting your house from water damage requires a trusted solution to prevent water intrusion. After the ground surrounding your house ‘s foundation is saturated with rain, your basement if not properly waterproofed may flow. As qualified foundation builders we know foundation drainage and how it functions from outside as it rains inside when the basement flows. There could be a number of reasons why there’s water in your basement. Typically your house ‘s foundation is poured concrete or constructed of CMU or concrete block. Poured bases tend toward 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.

What is included when I Waterproof my Basement?
A free evaluation and quote is always included for almost any Bethesda Basement Waterproofing solution we supply. Our tests are thorough and comprehensive. We take into account the area on your basement where the water is intruding, assess your sump pump’s operation and walk the outside perimeter of your house to look for areas of additional concern. The 20000 Leaks staff will notice if your gutters are cleaned, your downspouts are functioning and leaving away from your house ‘s foundation. We assess your window drains and basement stairways and look for any pooling water or sink holes close to your foundation. This information is mentioned by our estimator and can be addressed in their own cost quotation where essential. It is also included on the job-site checklist which is shared together with your Bethesda Basement Waterproofing installation team.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Systems
We have a complete line of professional grade products to meet all your Waterproofing requirements.
- Surface Preparation
- Waterproofing Membrane
- Drainage Board
- Protection Board
This flexible, lightweight renewable product is ideal for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain tube, also known as drain is connected to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump using a 1-” PVC discharge line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. 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 flow. We then put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board in the cove place where the foundation wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and placed the wall up and over the trench. It raises water drainage and leads intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. After the installation of the Polydrain that the trench is sealed using industrial grade concrete.
Interior Bethesda Basement Waterproofing solutions may also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked into the Polydrain and installed normally from floor to ceiling. It is not difficult to clean, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall regions with high water content, like corners, problem areas or older construction, Polydrain may be installed complete wall or chest high.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After analysis by our review team the best solution is to waterproof your basement from the outside. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls into the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. We only use professional grade materials for this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the project Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks team to possess the excavation place marked for almost 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 exactly what heavy equipment will be essential to perform the digging.
After the foundation 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 foundation wall temperatures are critical in the application of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day that the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable watertight barrier. Before backfilling the area, the membrane ought to be shielded 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 staff to firm the loose soil around the house ‘s foundation.
