Waterproofing Basement Montgomery County Solutions
Protecting your home from water damage requires a reliable solution to stop water intrusion. After the floor surrounding your home’s foundation is saturated with rain, your basement if not properly waterproofed may leak. As qualified foundation builders we understand foundation drainage and how it works from outside as it rains to inside when the basement leaks. There might be a number of reasons why there’s water in your basement. Typically your home’s foundation is 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 foundation types could leak due to hydrostatic pressure where the foundation wall joins the basement floor.

We take into account the region on your basement where the water is intruding, assess your sump pump’s operation and walk the exterior perimeter of your home to look for areas of further concern. The 20000 Leaks staff will note if your gutters are cleaned, your downspouts are functioning and exiting from your home’s foundation. We assess your window wells and basement stairways and try to find any pooling sink or water holes close to your foundation.

Our Waterproofing Basement solutions also comprise 4″ ADS, single wall HDPE perforated pipe. This flexible, lightweight renewable product is excellent for subgrade irrigation water control. The drain pipe, also called drain 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 release line is installed by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump choices which may be installed in the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is put in the drain trench to aide in water stream. Then we put in Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board at the cove area where the foundation wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and put the wall up and over the trench. It raises 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 Montgomery County solutions may also include wall systems. Alternatives are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked in the Polydrain and installed typically from floor to ceiling. It is easy to clean, 100% waterproof and does not support mold, mould or bacteria growth. For wall regions with higher water content, like corners, problem areas or old construction, Polydrain may be installed complete wall or chest high. Additionally, there are commercial grade epoxy and polymeric acrylic coatings available.
After evaluation by our inspection team the best solution is to waterproof your basement in the exterior. This necessitates excavating the soil surrounding your foundation walls to the footings and installing a bituthene waterproof membrane. Again, we simply use professional grade materials for this particular application, Henry’s self-adhering Blueskin.
Exterior Waterproofing Basement Solutions
Before starting the project Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks group to have the excavation area marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified foundation builders you may rest assured the stability of your foundation is in great hands. The thickness of the excavation determines what heavy equipment will be necessary to perform the digging.
Following the foundation walls are excavated they are cleaned and inspected for any defects or cracks.These are patched and repaired before employing the Blue skincare primer. Outside temperatures and foundation wall temperatures are critical in the application of the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day the primer is applied 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 ought to be shielded with a durable tear resistant drainboard, so the membrane isn’t damaged during the process.
