Maryland Interior Basement Waterproofing Solutions

Protecting your house from water damage takes a trusted solution to prevent water intrusion. Water takes the path of least resistance and as all of us know can be quite harmful. When the floor surrounding your home’s foundation is saturated with rain, your basement if not properly waterproofed could flow. As qualified foundation builders we understand foundation drainage and how it works from outside when it rains inside when the basement leaks. There could be many reasons why there’s water in your basement. Typically your home’s foundation is poured concrete or constructed of CMU or concrete block. Poured foundations are prone to fractures from settling, whereas block foundations are porous and can flow at the joints. Both foundation types could leak because of hydrostatic pressure where the foundation wall joins the basement floor.

We take into account the area on your basement where the water is intruding, check your sump pump’s operation and walk the outside perimeter of your house to look for areas of additional concern. The 20000 Leaks staff will note if your gutters are cleaned, your downspouts are functioning and leaving away from your home’s foundation. We check your window wells and basement stairways and try to find any pooling water or sink holes near your foundation. This information is mentioned by our estimator and can be addressed in their cost quotation where essential. It is also included on the job-site checklist which is shared with your Basement Waterproofing installment team.

Maryland Interior Basement Waterproofing Systems

We have a complete line of professional grade products to meet all of your Waterproofing needs.

  • Surface Preparation
  • Waterproofing Membrane
  • Drainage Board
  • Protection Board

This flexible, lightweight sustainable merchandise is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain tube, also called drain is connected to a polyethylene sump basin that 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 into the sump basin. For additional protection you will find Zoeller backup pump choices that may be installed into precisely the exact 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 in the cove place where the foundation wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and put the wall up and above the trench. It raises water and leads intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile system. Following the installation of this Polydrain the trench is sealed with commercial grade concrete.

Maryland Interior Basement Waterproofing solutions may also include 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 doesn’t support mold, mould or bacteria growth. For wall areas with high water content, such as corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain may be set up complete wall or chest high. There are also commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings available.

After analysis by our review team the ideal solution is to waterproof your basement from the outside. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. We only use professional grade stuff with this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.

Before starting the project Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks team to have the excavation place marked for almost any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you may be sure the stability of your foundation is in great hands. The thickness of the excavation determines exactly what heavy equipment will be essential to execute the digging.

Following the foundation walls are excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any flaws or cracks.These are patched and repaired before applying the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are critical in the application of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane can be set up on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable waterproof barrier. Before backfilling the area, the membrane should be protected with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the procedure. Following the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped from the 20000 Leaks staff to business the loose soil around the home’s foundation.
