Protecting your house from water damage takes a trusted solution to stop water intrusion. Water takes the path of least resistance and as all of us know can be quite harmful. After the ground surrounding your house ‘s base is saturated with rain, your cellar should not properly waterproofed may leak. As qualified base builders we understand foundation drainage and the way it functions from outside as it rains to inside when the basement leaks. There could be a number of reasons why there’s water from your cellar. Typically your house ‘s base is either poured concrete or assembled of CMU or concrete block. Poured bases tend toward fractures from settling, whereas block bases are porous and will leak at the joints. Both base types could leak due to hydrostatic pressure in which the base wall joins the cellar floor. Following an exhaustive evaluation, our base specialists will offer a comprehensive Waterproofing Basement Arnold solution to keep your basement dry and protect your house from further water damage.

A free evaluation and quote is always contained for any Waterproofing Basement Arnold solution we provide. Our tests are comprehensive and thorough. We take into account the region in your cellar where the water is intruding, assess your sump pump’s operation and walk the exterior perimeter of your house to search for areas of further concern. The 20000 Leaks staff will note if your gutters are cleaned, your downspouts are functioning and leaving from your house ‘s base. We assess your window wells and cellar stairways and look for any pooling water or sink holes close to your base. This information is noted by our estimator and can be addressed in their price quotation where essential. It is also contained on the job-site checklist that’s shared together with your Waterproofing Basement Arnold installation group.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Systems
We have a comprehensive line of professional grade products to meet all your Waterproofing needs.
- Surface Preparation
- Waterproofing Membrane
- Drainage Board
- Protection Board
This flexible, lightweight renewable product is ideal for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain tube, also called drain tile is connected to a polyethylene sump basin which holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it by the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump using a 1-” PVC discharge line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For extra protection you will find Zoeller backup pump choices which can be installed in the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is put in the drain line trench to aide in water flow. Then we put in Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board in the cove place in which the base wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and put up the wall and above the trench. It raises water drainage and leads intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of this Polydrain that the trench is sealed using industrial grade concrete.
Interior Waterproofing Basement Arnold solutions can also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked in the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. It is not difficult to clean, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mould or bacteria growth. For wall areas with high water content, such as corners, problem areas or old structure, Polydrain can be installed complete wall or chest high. There are also commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings available.
Exterior Waterproofing Basement Arnold Solutions
After evaluation by our review team the ideal solution is to waterproof your basement from the exterior. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. Again, we only use professional grade stuff for this application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the job Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks group to have the excavation place marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you can rest assured that the stability of your base is in great hands. The depth of the excavation determines what heavy gear will be essential to perform the digging.
Following the base 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 base wall temperatures are crucial in the application of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day that the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane is also installed on the walls and the footers to insure an impermeable waterproof barrier. Before backfilling the area, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the process. Following the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped by the 20000 Leaks staff to business the loose soil around the house ‘s base.
