Harford County Basement Waterproofing Solutions

Protecting your home from water damage requires a trusted remedy to stop water intrusion. Water takes the path of least resistance and as all of us know can be very destructive. After the ground surrounding your home’s base is saturated with rainwater, your cellar if not properly waterproofed could flow. As qualified base builders we know foundation drainage and the way it works from outside when it rains to inside when the basement leaks. There might be many reasons why there’s water from your cellar. Typically your home’s base is poured concrete or assembled of CMU or concrete block. Poured bases tend toward fractures from settling, whereas block bases are porous and will flow at the joints. Both base types could leak due to hydrostatic pressure in which the base wall joins the cellar floor.

We take into account the region in your cellar where the water is intruding, assess your sump pump’s functioning and walk the outside perimeter of your home to search for areas of further concern.

We assess your window drains and cellar stairways and look for any pooling water or sink holes close to your base.

Our cellar waterproofing solutions also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain pipe, also called drain tile is joined 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 release line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team into the sump basin. For extra protection you will find Zoeller backup pump choices which may be installed into precisely the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.

River wash gravel is put in the drain line trench to aide in water stream. Then we put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board at the cove place in which the base wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and put the wall up and above the trench. It raises water and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile system. After the installation of this Polydrain that the trench is sealed using commercial grade concrete.

Interior Harford County Basement Waterproofing solutions may also include things like wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked into the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. For a cleaner look and for walls using a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet could be installed. It is easy to clean, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria development. For wall areas with high water content, like corners, problem areas or older construction, Polydrain may be installed full wall or chest high. There are also commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings accessible.

Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions

After evaluation by our inspection team the ideal solution may be to waterproof your basement in the outside. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. We simply 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 team to possess the excavation place 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 depth of the excavation determines what heavy equipment will be necessary to perform the digging.

After the base walls have been excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and repaired before applying the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are crucial in the use of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The identical day that the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the area, the membrane ought to be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the process. After the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped from the 20000 Leaks staff to firm the loose soil around the home’s base.
