Protecting your house from water damage requires a reliable solution to prevent water intrusion. Water takes the path of least resistance and as all of us know can be very harmful. After the floor surrounding your house ‘s base is saturated with rain, your basement should not properly waterproofed may leak. As qualified base builders we know foundation drainage and how it functions from outside as it rains to inside when the basement leaks. There could be a number of reasons why there’s water in your basement. Typically your house ‘s base is either poured concrete or constructed of CMU or concrete block. Poured foundations are prone to cracks from settling, whereas block foundations are porous and can leak at the joints. Both base types could leak because of hydrostatic pressure where the base wall joins the basement floor.

Our Forest Hill Basement Waterproofing solutions also include 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable merchandise is ideal for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain tube, 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. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump with a 1-” PVC release line is set up by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For extra protection you will find Zoeller backup pump choices which may be installed in the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is put in the drain trench to aide in water stream. Then we install Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board at the cove area where the base wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and put the wall up and above the trench. It increases water drainage and directs intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile system. After the installation of this Polydrain that the trench is sealed with commercial grade concrete.
Interior Basement Waterproofing solutions may also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked in the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. To get a cleaner appearance and for walls with a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet can be set up. It is not difficult to wash, 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 may be set up full wall or chest elevated. Additionally, there are commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings available.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After analysis by our inspection team the best solution is 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. We simply use professional grade stuff 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 base builders you may rest assured that 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.
After the base walls are excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and repaired before applying the Blue skincare primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are critical in the use of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The identical day that the primer is applied the self-adhering membrane is also set up on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the surface, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the process.
