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 where the base wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and placed the wall up and over the trench. It increases water drainage and directs intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. After the installation of the Polydrain that the trench is sealed using commercial grade concrete.
Great Falls Interior Basement Waterproofing solutions can also include things like wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked into the Polydrain and set up normally from floor to ceiling. It is not difficult to wash, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mildew or bacteria development. For wall regions with high water content, such as corners, problem areas or old structure, Polydrain can be set up complete wall or chest elevated.
