COMMERCIAL WATERPROOFING SERVICE OVERVIEW

Commercial waterproofing  grade products use patented expandable bi-fold technology to absorb the common wave deformity generic dimple mat can’t overcome. Our system allows us to work smarter and faster with the horizontal troughs and structural footer dimples.  This design allows us to yield higher drain allowance & clog-free seepage collection benefitting for all our commercial contractors.

PLAN AND DETAILS

1.  Start by installing the sump pump system first (if needed in your situation), we can also connect to existing sumps as long as canister meets requirements. This will help manage water flow during the process of breaking out the concrete along where the floor and walls meet.

2.  Beginning at the sump pump, we remove concrete floor away from the walls and all the way down to the footer.

3.  We then precisely grade the French drain on the footer and verify that the vertical portion of the system will stick up above the floor surface a quarter inch to 1-inch after the cement work is finished.

4 . Seems between the main sections should will be covered to keep concrete from getting into the system while pouring concrete.

5.  Once the system is completely laid out and seems taped, we pour crushed rock into the trench, filling up to the horizontal plane of the top of the French drain system. This will leave allow space to pour concrete yet over the channel allowing for the back fin to stick up above the concrete and catch any water that may come down the wall through cracks or window wells.

  • Why finishing your basement is important?

    Basement finishing is a very important way you can return value to your property when done properly and you can do this by adding extra living space without building an extension to the existing foundation.

    You can easily take advantage of the space you already have and convert it to either family room, game room, gym space, home office or playroom.

  • Why waterproofing your basement is important?

    1.  It is always better to waterproof your basements so that you can prevent your property from structural damage.

    2.  If you reside in a hurricane prone or heavy rainfall area, then you must not neglect waterproofing your basements. This is because these areas are vulnerable to flooding. Excess water from the ground might seep in through the basement easily.

    3.  If you don’t waterproof, the water seeping in can ruin your belongings, especially if they are made out of wood.

    4. Damp areas act as breeding platforms for microorganisms and contaminants. Different kinds of mold breed beneath damp and padded carpets or in between the walls. The most dangerous contaminant is the black mold since the high levels of toxins present in it can cause death.

  • How can encapsulating your crawl space save you 20% on your energy cost?

    A house as usually believe likes “to breathe”, taking air from lower levels and expel it via upper levels. With this being done, the air gets into the crawl space and caries all the humidity of the dirt, thereby exposed the crawl space.

    This phenomenon causes an increased load (extra energy) on your heating and cooling systems since the air must be heated , cooled or dehumidified.
