Waterproofing Block Walls
The wall is excavated to the footing and old drain tile is removed. Bleeders are flushed clean or installed if not present. The wall is pressure washed to remove all debris. The cracks in the wall will be repaired and re coated with masonry cement. The wall will be coated with Marflex waterproofing to seal the wall. Wall will be backfilled with ¾ inch washed stone 20 inches from grade covered with a below grade geotextile filter fabric in areas. Finish backfilling trench areas with impervious fill to within 6” of ground surface, place topsoil to finish grade height and pitch soil away from building.

Dehumidifiers & Moisture Control
Our revolutionary basement dehumidifiers and crawlspace dehumidifiers address humidity and condensation by drying under the slab before moisture enters. Basements are similar to a cave – they are below ground level (subterranean) and are conducive to a damp, wet environment that more often than not, requires proper dehumidification. Independent studies have shown that up to 80% of moisture in basements originates from under the floor! If the source of the dampness is addressed, then 80% of the problem is eliminated.
