What is included when I Waterproof my Basement?
A free evaluation and estimate is always included for almost any Basement Waterproofing solution we provide. Our evaluations are thorough and comprehensive. We take into account the area in your cellar where the water is intruding, check your sump pump’s functioning and walk the exterior perimeter of your house to search for areas of additional concern. The 20000 Leaks team will note if your gutters are cleaned, your downspouts are functioning and exiting away from your house ‘s foundation. We check your window wells and cellar stairways and try to find any pooling sink or water holes near your foundation. This information is mentioned by our estimator and can be addressed in their own price quotation where necessary. It’s also included on the job-site checklist that’s shared with your Potomac Basement Waterproofing installment team.

Our basement waterproofing solutions also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is ideal for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain pipe, also known as 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 discharge line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team into the sump basin. For additional protection you will find Zoeller backup pump choices which can 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 tech drainage board at the cove area where the foundation wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and put up the wall and above the trench. It raises water drainage and leads intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure into the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of the Polydrain the trench is sealed using commercial grade concrete.
Interior Potomac Basement Waterproofing solutions can also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked into the Polydrain and installed normally from floor to ceiling. For a cleaner look and for walls using a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet can be installed. It’s easy to clean, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall regions with high water content, like corners, problem areas or older construction, Polydrain can be installed complete wall or chest high. Additionally, there are commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings accessible.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After evaluation by our review team the ideal solution may be to waterproof your basement from the exterior. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your foundation 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 job Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks team to possess the excavation area marked for almost any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you can rest assured the stability of your foundation is in great hands. The thickness of the excavation determines exactly what heavy gear will be necessary to execute the digging.
Following the foundation walls have been excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any flaws or cracks.These are patched and repaired before employing the Blue skincare primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are critical in the use of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is applied the self-adhering membrane is also installed on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable waterproof barrier. Prior to backfilling the surface, the membrane ought to be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the procedure.
