Exterior waterproofing is true waterproofing due to the fact that is keeps water away from the foundation. When water is kept away from the foundation, it doesn't have a chance to enter the basement. PFS Basement & Foundation Repair uses the best products for exterior waterproofing in the industry. These products are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leading manufacturer of basement waterproofing and foundation repair products in the industry.
Water is transferred from the outside of a structure to the interior because water takes the path of least resistance and if this is into the basement, than that is where it will go. By installing an exterior waterproofing system, the water won't have a chance to enter the basement.
The ECP products needed for exterior waterproofing are:
The ECP waterproofing membrane combines the durability of asphalt with the elasticity of rubber to provide a barrier against water leaks that is long lasting. It is applied by roller or spray to the foundation.
The dimple drainage board is a prefabricated drainage board that consists of a solid, formed, three dimensional core covered with a geo-textile filter fabric bonded to the dimple side of the core.
The ECP 4" perforated drain pipe is installed beneath the foundation and drains the water away from the foundation. This drain pipe is crush resistant and has exceptional water volume capacity.
The sump pumps made by ECP are the most energy efficient lineup of sump pumps on the market with high pumping capacities. Along with the primary sump pump, it is necessary to have a battery backup sump pump in cases when the electricity goes out. This will ensure you that water will stay away from your basement anytime there is a power outage.
