General Basement Waterproofing FAQs
A: References are certainly helpful. However, if you can visit a project while in progress – is certainly more impressive. Besides, you can really appreciate all the hard work the goes into basement waterproofing. Another good resource is: The Better Business Bureau and the Division of Consumer Affairs. Most of their records date back 3-years. Keep in mind most contractors have 1000’s of past customers, choosing a contractor with a clean slate is better than speaking with several 100’s of customers. A clean slate is hard to achieve these days, wouldn’t you agree?
A: It’s a good start, however it will not solve all your issues. You will need to HydroTex the walls and floors for a 100% “Dry all the time” design.
The nickname “French Drain” is so misunderstood. Most people think they have a “French Drain”, regarding to the gap around the perimeter of their basement floor. This is really called a HydroGap – known as a floating floor. A French drain is a sub-soil (sub-floor) piping system parallel to the footer (not on top of the footer) connecting into a sump pump.
Did you know? Henry Todd French, designed the first ‘French Drain” (hence French drain) in 1845 in Massachusetts – (Fun Fact: most people we interviewed thought it came from France…. now you know better too!). The first French Drain pipe was made of clay tile, with no holes in the pipe. I guess your next question is “how did the water get into the pipe?” Simple, it was spaced ½ inch apart, and pitch on a downward slope (gravity) to the exterior.
A: Yes, call your builder and complain. Cleaning your gutters, extending down spouts, and re-grading sounds like good proactive steps; if it only rains on your roof. But, truthfully, you’re better off buying some waterproofing dirt. The dirt (soil) is the problem. The loose backfill packed around your foundation walls is the path of least resistance. Let’s go all the way back to the day they built your home. Your builder dug a hole and put your home in it – without sealing the walls, the footer, the cove joint and slab – before back-filling. In addition to: never addressing the false table of water, which is the more problematic issue – /contributing to hydrostatic pressure.
