Our cellar waterproofing solutions also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight sustainable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain pipe, also known as drain tile is connected 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 may be installed in precisely the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain line trench to aide in water flow. Then we install Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board at the cove area in which the foundation wall meets the cellar 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 because of hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile system. After the installation of the Polydrain that the trench is sealed with industrial grade concrete.
Interior Chevy Chase Basement Waterproofing solutions may also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked in the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. It’s not difficult to wash, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria development. For wall areas with higher water content, like corners, problem areas or old structure, Polydrain may be installed complete wall or chest elevated.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After evaluation by our review team the best solution may be to waterproof your basement in the outside. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. Again, we only use professional grade materials with this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the project Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks group to possess 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 thickness of the excavation determines exactly what heavy gear will be necessary to perform the digging.
After the foundation walls have been excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and mended before employing the Blue skincare primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are crucial in the use of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day that the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane is also installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the area, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the procedure.
