Our Waterproofing Basement Ellicott City options also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight sustainable product is ideal for subgrade irrigation water management. The drain pipe, also called drain is joined to a polyethylene sump basin that holds the groundwater collected and channeled to it by the ADS pipe. A cast-iron Zoeller sump pump using a 1-” PVC release line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For additional protection you will find Zoeller backup pump choices that can be installed in the exact 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 install Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board in the cove area where the base wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty built drainage matting is bent and put up the wall and above the trench. It increases 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 commercial grade concrete.
Interior Waterproofing Basement Ellicott City 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 can be installed. It’s easy to wash, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mould or bacteria development. For wall regions with higher water content, such as corners, problem areas or old construction, Polydrain can be installed full wall or chest elevated. There are also commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings available.After evaluation by our review team the ideal solution is to waterproof your basement from the exterior. This requires excavating the soil surrounding your base walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. We simply use professional grade stuff with this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Before beginning the job Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks team to have the excavation area marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you can be sure that the stability of your base is in good hands. The thickness of the excavation determines exactly what heavy equipment will be necessary to perform the digging.
Exterior Waterproofing Basement Solutions
Following the base walls are 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 base wall temperatures are critical in the application of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The identical 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. Prior to backfilling the area, the membrane should be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane is not damaged during the process.
