Protect your home from water damage by installing an exterior waterproofing system by Ground Up Builders. The system we have chosen is made by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the highest quality of waterproofing systems made in the industry today. Stopping water from collecting around the foundation is an important part of basement waterproofing. Water is transferred from the outside of a building to the interior because water takes the patch of least resistance and if this is into the basement, then that is where it will flow. Another way water enters from the outside is capillary action. Concrete is a porous material. As concrete sets in water, the water is absorbed until it becomes completely saturated then disperses moisture inside of the home
The Earth Contact Products needed for exterior waterproofing are:
The waterproofing membrane combines the durability of asphalt with the elasticity of rubber to provide a long lasting barrier against water leaks. It is applied by using a roller or spray to a foundation to stop water from entering. The dimple drainage board is a drainage application prefabricated 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 4" perforated drain pipe is installed beneath the foundation and drains the water away from the foundation. This drain pipe has a superior crush resistance and exceptional water volume capacity wile conforming to building codes for both commercial and residential application.
Keeping water from entering your basement through an exterior drainage system will help prevent any future water problems in your Nashville or Murfreesboro basement. Water can cause a number of health issues if left unattended to. Mold and mildew can form causing respiratory problems, sinus congestion, eye irritation, throat irritation, skin irritation, and nervous system problems. By installing exterior waterproofing solutions from Ground Up Builders, you can protect your home and your family.
