- Waterproofing Membrane
- Drainage Board
- Protection Board
Our cellar waterproofing options also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight sustainable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain pipe, also known as drain tile is connected to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. For additional protection you will find Zoeller backup pump options that may be installed into precisely the exact same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain trench to aide in water flow. Then we install Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board in the cove area where the foundation wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and placed the wall up and above the trench. It increases 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 with industrial grade concrete.
Interior Severna Park Basement Waterproofing solutions may also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked into the Polydrain and installed normally from floor to ceiling. To get a cleaner appearance and for walls with a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet could be installed. It is easy to clean, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mould or bacteria development. For wall regions with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or old construction, Polydrain may be installed complete wall or chest high.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
After analysis by our inspection team the ideal solution may be to waterproof your basement from the exterior. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls to the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. We only use professional grade materials for this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the project Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks group to have the excavation area 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 depth of the excavation determines exactly what heavy equipment will be necessary to execute the digging.
Following the foundation walls have been excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and repaired before employing the Blue skincare primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are crucial in the use of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable watertight barrier. Before backfilling the area, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the procedure.
