Polydrain

Polydrain

concrete damage

Is it possible to put concrete over a leaking basement floor?  Yes!  Using Polydrain and the qualified installers from MoldGoneTC.  Water seeping from a basement floor or walls are common in Northern Lower Michigan.  If you are experiencing occasional or constant moisture or (a river) regular water floor in any concrete area there is a fix.

This picture is of a waterproofing job where Polydrain wasn’t used and the concrete replacement floor blocked the weep holes in the wall.

Clogged or blocked “Weep holes” usually allow the water out to an added drain system  But if you don’t use Polydrain (explained below) this can backfire.

Without Polydrain, moisture can wick through the concrete and condensation puddles will form on the new floor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Polydrain
Polydrain uses Air-Gap Technology to increase water drainage and help restore the foundation floor to its original thickness.
The design maintains a 5/8” gap between the footer and replacement slab, creating a waffle pattern that channels the water
below and supports the concrete above. Polydrain is laid directly onto the footer and extends over the drain system. Eliminating gravel on the footer boosts water flow by removing resistance. By extending Polydrain up the wall, the weep holes are protected and any moisture from the foundation wall is channeled into the drainage system. Polydrain is made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight (UHMW) thermoplastic, and can be bent and folded as needed with no cracking.
