Protecting your home from water damage takes a reliable solution to stop water intrusion. Water takes the path of least resistance and as all of us know can be very destructive. When the ground surrounding your home’s foundation is saturated with rainwater, your cellar should not properly waterproofed could leak. As qualified foundation builders we know foundation drainage and the way it works from outside when it rains to inside once the basement leaks. There could be a number of reasons why there’s water from your cellar. Typically your home’s foundation is poured concrete or assembled of CMU or concrete block. Poured foundations are prone to cracks from settling, whereas block foundations are porous and can leak at the joints. Both foundation types could leak due to hydrostatic pressure in which the foundation wall joins the cellar floor.

We check your window wells and cellar stairways and try to find any pooling water or sink holes close to your foundation. This information is mentioned by our estimator and can be addressed in their cost quotation where necessary.

We have a complete line of professional grade products to meet all of your Waterproofing requirements.
- Surface Preparation
- Waterproofing Membrane
- Drainage Board
- Protection Board
This flexible, lightweight renewable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain pipe, also known as drain is joined to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it from the ADS pipe. For extra protection there are Zoeller backup pump options that can be installed in precisely the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain trench to aide in water stream. Then we install Polydrain, an air-gap technology drainage board at the cove area in which the foundation wall meets the cellar floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and placed up the wall and above the trench. It increases water and leads intruding water due to hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of the Polydrain the trench is sealed using industrial grade concrete.
Interior Waterproofing Basement Bel Air solutions can also include things like wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier that’s tucked in the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. To get a cleaner appearance and for walls using a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet could be installed. It’s easy to wash, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria development. For wall regions with high water content, like corners, problem areas or old structure, Polydrain can be installed full wall or chest elevated. There are also commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings accessible.
After evaluation by our inspection team the best solution is to waterproof your basement from 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 application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before starting the job Ms Utility is contacted from the 20000 Leaks group to possess the excavation area marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you can be sure the stability of your foundation is in good hands. The thickness of the excavation determines exactly what heavy gear will be necessary to execute the digging.
Exterior Waterproofing Basement Solutions
Following the foundation walls have been 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 both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane is also installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable watertight barrier. Prior to backfilling the surface, 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 from the 20000 Leaks team to business the loose soil around the home’s foundation.
