Waterproofing Basement Abingdon Solutions
Protecting your home from water damage requires a reliable solution to stop water intrusion. When the ground surrounding your house’s foundation is saturated with rain, your cellar if not properly waterproofed could leak. As qualified foundation builders we know foundation drainage and the way it functions from outside when it rains to inside when the basement leaks. There might be many reasons why there’s water in your cellar. Typically your house’s foundation is either poured concrete or assembled of CMU or concrete block. Poured bases tend toward fractures from settling, whereas block bases are porous and can leak at the mortar joints. Both foundation types could leak due to hydrostatic pressure where the foundation wall joins the cellar floor.

Interior Waterproofing Basement Abingdon Systems
We’ve got a comprehensive line of professional grade products to meet all your Waterproofing needs.

This flexible, lightweight sustainable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain tube, also known as drain is connected to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. For additional protection you will find Zoeller backup pump options which may be installed in the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain line trench to aide in water stream. We then install Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board at the cove place 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 raises water and directs intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. After the installation of the Polydrain the trench is sealed with industrial grade concrete.
Interior Waterproofing Basement Abingdon solutions may also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked in the Polydrain and set up normally from floor to ceiling. It is not difficult to clean, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall regions with high water content, like corners, problem areas or old structure, Polydrain may be set up complete wall or chest elevated.
After evaluation by our inspection team the best solution is to waterproof your basement in the exterior. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls into the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. Again, we simply use professional grade materials for this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the project Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks group to possess the excavation place marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you may be sure the stability of your foundation is in good hands. The thickness of the excavation determines what heavy gear will be necessary to execute the digging.
Exterior Waterproofing Basement Solutions
After the foundation walls are excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any flaws or cracks.These are patched and mended before applying the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are crucial in the use of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The identical day the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane is also set up on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable watertight barrier. Before backfilling the surface, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the process.
