BDry® Basement Waterproofing System
YOUR BASEMENT WATERPROOFING SOLUTION
Our patented basement waterproofing system is designed to address the five most common ways ground water enters your basement or crawlspace.
HOW OUR BASEMENT WATERPROOFING SYSTEM WORKS
As a water table rises and the french drain that the builder installed inevitably fails, the water builds up and travels over the footing and under the footing, directly into the patented BDry® high capacity pipe.
Water that enters through cracks in the wall will travel through the weep holes and enter the BDry® pipe. This water seepage is directed by the BDry® wall membrane also into the BDry® pipe.
THE BDry® SYSTEM INSTALLATION PROCESS
To Install the BDry® Basement Waterproofing System a portion of the floor slab is carefully and temporarily removed. A trench is created to slope toward a drainage point. Weep holes are then drilled into the core of the concrete blocks in order to drain them constantly. Our patented BDry® waterproofing membrane Rigid Sealer(R) is placed on the interior wall. Our patented, high capacity BDry® Pipe is then installed in the trench next to the footing.
The concrete floor is then restored. Once this concrete dries, any floor covering tile, carpet or wood floors can be installed on top of your floor slab. While the installation of the BDry® Waterproofing System may take more man hours to install than other methods, this process results in a longer lasting solution to keep your basement or crawl space dry. This unique installation process and the proprietary materials used in our installation process address the five most common ways ground water enters your basement or crawlspace and gives you lasting peace of mind to use the space as you please.
MATERIALS USED BY BDry®
BDry® uses only the highest quality, American made foundation repair materials that meet the latest ICC specifications. BDry® only uses materials from well-established companies and has since 1958.
A sump pump is a mechanical device used to remove water from your basement or crawlspace. Sump pumps are particularly helpful in wet basement waterproofing. Water that arrives via the walls and floors is collected and pumped out of the home. Having a basement waterproofing system and/or a proper sump pump installed are options for keeping a wet lower level dry. Knowledgeable waterproofing experts, like those at BDry®, will be able to help you determine the best solution and whether a sump pump is needed.
