We check your window drains and basement stairways and try to find any pooling sink or water holes near your base.

Interior Basement Waterproofing Systems
We have a comprehensive line of professional grade products to fulfill all your Waterproofing needs.
- Surface Preparation
- Waterproofing Membrane
- Drainage Board
- Protection Board
This flexible, lightweight sustainable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain tube, also called drain is joined to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it by the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump using a 1-” PVC release line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump options that can be installed into the exact 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 area in which the base wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and placed up the wall and above the trench. It increases water and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile system. Following the installation of the Polydrain the trench is sealed using commercial grade concrete.
Interior Edgewater Basement Waterproofing solutions can also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked into the Polydrain and installed normally from floor to ceiling. It’s easy to wash, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mould or bacteria development. For wall regions with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or old structure, Polydrain can be installed full wall or chest elevated.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After analysis by our review team the best solution may be to waterproof your basement from the exterior. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. Again, we only use professional grade stuff with this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the project Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks team to possess the excavation area marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you can be sure the stability of your base is in great hands. The depth of the excavation determines exactly what heavy equipment will be necessary 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 applying the Blue skincare 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 implemented the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the surface, the membrane ought to be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the process. Following the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped by the 20000 Leaks team to firm the loose soil around the house ‘s base.
