Waterproofing Basement Bethesda Solutions
Protecting your house from water damage takes a reliable remedy to prevent water intrusion. After the floor surrounding your house’s foundation is saturated with rain, your basement if not properly waterproofed could leak. As qualified foundation builders we know foundation drainage and how it functions from outside as it rains to inside once the basement flows. There might be many reasons why there’s water in your basement. Typically your house’s foundation is poured concrete or assembled of CMU or concrete block. Poured bases are prone to cracks 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 basement floor.

Our Waterproofing Basement Bethesda options also include 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. 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. For extra protection you will find Zoeller backup pump options which may be installed into 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 technology drainage board at the cove area where the foundation wall meets the basement 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 system. Following the installation of this Polydrain that the trench is sealed using industrial grade concrete.
Interior Waterproofing Basement Bethesda solutions may 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. To get a cleaner look and for walls using a high moisture content Polywall, an extruded resin sheet could be installed. It’s not difficult to wash, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mould or bacteria growth. For wall areas with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain may be installed complete wall or chest high.
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 to the footings and installing a bituthene watertight membrane. Again, we simply use professional grade stuff with this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.

Before beginning the project Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks team to possess the excavation area marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you may be sure that the stability of your foundation is in good hands. The thickness of the excavation determines what heavy equipment will be necessary to execute the digging.
Following the foundation walls have been excavated they’re cleaned and inspected for any flaws or cracks.These are patched and repaired before employing the Blue skin primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are critical in the application of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The identical day that the primer is applied the self-adhering membrane can be installed on the walls and the footers to guarantee an impermeable watertight barrier. Before backfilling the area, the membrane ought to be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the process. Following the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped by the 20000 Leaks team to firm the loose soil around the house ‘s foundation.
