WATERPROOFING INSIDE Interior benefits: The internal system is used for three main reasons: the problem cannot be resolved from the exterior due to confined space or no access. The water problem is not a foundation leak but a hydraulics pressure issue, which means that the ground water under the concrete block raises up and down and cause the water to go through the basement slab. It is cost effectiveness for unfinished living areas. Interior drainage system: The floor is damaged around the borders in which the system is needed to be approximately 6 to 10 inches away from the foundation wall. Concrete is removed and the ditch is dug up to accommodate the 3 inch punctured weeping tile. When the weeping tile is put in, it must be connected to a discharge such as a sump pump or a floor drain. A dimpled sheet of drainage membrane is put in on the exposed interior wall exposed wall of the system that has been installed. We then put in a layer of three quater lucid gravel over the weeping tile to increase the maximum drainage to the tile. Once the membrane and gravel are put in, water from above or below the grade is drained into the installed system. Lastly, a layer of concrete is put in on top of the exposed ditch. This will put the floor back to its original level. WATERPROOFING OUTSIDE Exterior waterproofing benefits Exterior waterproofing cut backs on the moisture in the basement and eliminates musty odors and other allergies affecting people. Waterproofing the exterior foundation walls will give you a structurally sound foundation by get rid of deterioration that is occurring on the foundation walls.
