How To Waterproof A Basement

Most water enters basement from hydrostatic pressure at floor/ wall joint or up thru floor cracks.  To relieve this pressure a drain is installed sub- floor around perimeter and drained into sump pit.

Typically, the basement waterproofing installation process is as follows:

  • The inside perimeter of the floor is cut about 10 inches from the wall. A trench is excavated and cleared of all debris

  • The lowest course of block is drilled at every core pocket to release and remove the entrapped water. This step is not necessary with field stone or poured concrete walls

  • The Flat-Track or Quick-Flo drain is laid in the trench and pitched towards the sump pit(s). A cove base specific to your foundation is installed against the wall. All subfloor voids are then filled with ¾” washed gravel.

  • A vapor barrier is installed over the excavated trench and the floor is re-cemented to its original level.

  • The water is then discharged away from the house to a small drywell with a  bubble pot. and freeze guard.
