Pre-Construction

 Here a proper sized, below floor drainage system also called a Hydrostatic Pressure Relief System is shown just prior to cementing the system back up. A 12” deep trench lined with crushed stone with a perforated ADS pipe laid in the center of the trench is topped with more crushed stone and then a dimpled drain board. The drain board is folded up the wall and serves as a vapor barrier to prevent moisture in the drain system from wicking up through the cement as well as a way for water to reach the system in the event there is any penetration from the wall above. This system is connected to an automatically operating sump pump which removes the water to the outside of the home.

BRICK SPALLING

Brick Spalling or flaking brick is a type of failure caused by moisture and the freeze/thaw cycle.   We remove the brick and replace with a new matching brick. We have 5 different brick yards in the local area we work with.  Best way to stop this from happening is a brick or stone sealer.  a clear masonry water repellent that contains silanes and siloxanes.  

MORTAR JOINT DAMAGE
