Protecting your home from water damage requires a trusted solution to stop water intrusion. Water takes the path of least resistance and as we all know can be very destructive. After the floor surrounding your house ‘s base is saturated with rainwater, your basement if 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 in your basement. Typically your house ‘s base is either poured concrete or constructed of CMU or concrete block. Poured bases are prone to fractures from settling, whereas block bases are porous and can leak at the joints. Both base types could leak because of hydrostatic pressure where the base wall joins the basement floor. Following an exhaustive evaluation, our base specialists will offer an extensive Waterproofing Basement Olney solution to keep your basement dry and protect your home from further water damage.

This flexible, lightweight sustainable merchandise 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 with a 1-” PVC discharge line is set up by the 20000 Leaks team to the sump basin. For additional protection there are Zoeller backup pump choices that may be installed into the same basin either centrifugal, water-powered or battery backup.
River wash gravel is placed in the drain line trench to aide in water flow. Then we put in Polydrain, an air-gap tech drainage board in the cove area where the base wall meets the basement floor. This heavy duty constructed drainage matting is bent and placed the wall up and above the trench. It raises water drainage and leads intruding water because of hydrostatic pressure to the subgrade tile program. Following the installation of the Polydrain that the trench is sealed with commercial grade concrete.
Interior Waterproofing Basement Olney solutions may also include wall systems. Options are a 6 mil polyethylene vapor barrier which is tucked into the Polydrain and set up typically from floor to ceiling. It is easy to wash, 100% waterproof and doesn’t support mold, mildew or bacteria growth. For wall areas with high water content, like corners, problem areas or older structure, Polydrain may be set up full wall or chest elevated.

Before starting the job Ms Utility is contacted by the 20000 Leaks group to have the excavation area marked for any underground utility lines. As qualified base builders you may rest assured that the stability of your base is in great hands. The thickness of the excavation determines exactly 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 mended before employing the Blue skincare primer. Outside temperatures and base wall temperatures are critical in the use of both the primer and self-adhering membrane. The same day that the primer is implemented the self-adhering membrane is also set up 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 is not damaged during the process. Following the area is backfilled, the soil is then tamped by the 20000 Leaks team to business the loose soil around the house ‘s base.
