LEAKING  BASEMENT REPAIR DryMaster Basement Waterproofing  has a proven system of basement waterproofing that we guarantee 100% for life.
BASEMENT WATERPROOFING    To install an interior subfloor pressure relief system, (1) an approximate 12" wide by 10" deep trench will be excavated in the floor along the cove base and according to plan. (2)The trench will be lined with a filter paper and a 4" peforated subsoil drainpipe will be installed in the trench encased in "drain stone". (3) In the event of cinder block foundation walls only, weep holes will be drilled into every core and seam of the first course of block to aide in drainage.  (4) The drain pipe is attached to a sump pump system which will discharge the water into a pvc pipe which will go through the foundation wall to the outside. (5) The weep holes will be covered by a drain core board which will extend above and below the floor. (6) The trench will then be concreted over flush with the floor.       
 
In addition to basement waterproofing, all wet basements should have mold removal.

  ADVANCED DRAINAGE SYSTEMS (ADS) subsoil drain pipe is manufactured in the United States and distributed worldwide. BASEMENT WATERPROOFING PRODUCTS
More than 40 years ago, ADS observed the cumbersome and ineffective materials being used for drainage and surface water control. Recognizing the importance of managing our nation's water resources, researched and developed a structurally superior corrugated polyethylene pipe that was perfectly suited for subsurface drainage.
Introduced in the United States in 1966, this plastic pipe proved to be far superior to the materials in use at the time. Its many advantages included lightweight construction for easy handling, high resistance to corrosion and abrasion, and strength and durability to withstand severe loading conditions. It was not surprising that the ADS pipe soon became the clear choice for applications in residential, agriculture, mining, forestry, recreation, and civil engineered construction projects.
FRENCH DRAIN
  • Surface Drainage
    Strong enough to handle H20 and E80 loads, ADS corrugated HDPE pipe drains roads and drainage under roads. Diameters up to 60" provide outstanding storm water management capacity.
  • Subdivision Stormwater Management
    ADS provides pipe strong enough to handle H20 and E80 loads under roads. Diameters up to 60" provide outstanding storm water management capacity.
  • Retail and Business Parking Lots Storm Water Drainage
    Incorporating engineered pipe, catch basins, and curb inlets, a sound storm water management system will keep parking lots well drained and prolong the service life of the paved structure.
  • Airports Storm Water Management
    Rapid removal of stormwater and supporting the integrity of the sub-base are top concerns for engineers designing airport runways, taxiways, tarmacs, and railroads. N-12 pipe and corrugated single wall pipe have continued to meet the designer's requirements.

    20 Mil REINFORCED CRAWLSPACE MOISTURE BARRIER
    Made from premium grade virgin polyethylene resin. Most plastic manufactures can't say that and be truthful!  SilverBack™ brand crawl space vapor barrier has a new look and comes in three new sizes! The top of the SilverBack™ is still white but the back is now Silver. As always our vapor barriers are true thickness, so our 20 Mil measures 20 Mil at the barrier not the string reinforcement and naturally resists Mold and Mildew. Due to the increased availability of low quality "white" plastic from China being sold as a crawl space vapor barrier the manufacturer  decided to change how the American Made SilverBack™ vapor barriers looks. You still get the absolute best quality and performance as well as the technical support you need to install our products and answer your questions. The 20 Mil SilverBack™ is a perfect choice for high traffic areas or for homes that require additional storage in the crawl space. This product is reinforced with a polyester thread for additional tear strength. Use the 20 Mil SilverBack™ on the floor and the 12 Mil SilverBack™ on the walls to keep the costs inside the budget.

    FOUNDATION REPAIR   

      Foundation Construction

    In order for you to understand what causes a water problem in your basement, it is important to understand how the foundation was originally built and waterproofed.
     
     
    1. First a hole was dug
    2. Then a footing was poured
    3. Next, the walls were built on the footing
    4. The floor is poured between the walls
    5. Drainage tile and gravel are placed at the bottom of the hole next to the footing
    6. The walls are sealed
    7. Finally, the hole is back-filled with the soil that was dug from the hole.
     
    LEAKING BASEMENT WALL  BOWL EFFECT
    The soil in the clay backfilled area is now "loose" disturbed soil, compared to the "dense" undisturbed soil around it. This difference in soil creates the "BOWL EFFECT".

    Clay Backfill will swell as it becomes saturated with water which creates PRESSURE directed towards the foundation wall.

    Loose Soil + Dense Soil + Saturation = BOWED WALLS

    PRODUCT OVERVIEW
    Our patented Rhino® Carbon Fiber Wall Supports link the foundation base with the house framing making it the strongest system on the market!

    The carbon fiber is fastened to the sill plate with a galvanized bracket and secured to the foundation floor with a carbon fiber pin. Deterioration does not occur because our patented carbon fiber system is secured to the foundation wall allowing for an even distribution of outside pressure.

    Rhino® Carbon Fiber Wall Supports can easily be painted to help prevent the aesthetic problem with potential buyers, or covered with white wall panels. 
     
    CARBON FIBERhas been used in the aerospace, industrial, medical and transportation industries for over 25 years.
    CARBON FIBERfoundation repair and wall bracing systems have proven that they can hold up to an immense amount of     pressure and increase the strength of steel and concrete.
     CARBON FIBERhas been proven to provide foundation repair that lasts.
     CARBON FIBER is engineered to be remarkably strong and will not bend, stretch or crack even under 10 times  normal pressure.
    CARBON FIBER is stabilized with epoxy that permanently binds them to each other and to the foundation wall. Once installation is complete, your home's foundation is locked in place, eliminating further cracking or bowing problems.
     
    WALL ANCHORS
     During the installation of our  Anchor System,   anchors are embedded into the soil  away from the foundation wall.  the anchors are connected to  steel wall plates with  anchoring rods. The anchors will hold the wall in its current position without any further adjustment. The  benefit of an  Anchor System, is the ability to tighten the wall anchors during dry periods when the soil has contracted. This enables straightening of the wall over time.
    • Can be installed year-round
    • Most jobs completed in one day
    • Minor disturbance to your home, lawn and landscaping
    • Easy to conceal when finishing your basement
    • Your walls will not bow or tilt in any further
