As part of the B.C. Plumbing/building code and municipal code requirements, either two coats of foundation damp-proofing or both damp-proofing and foundation membrane are required. With all drain tile repairs, foundation crack repairs or full drain tile replacements, we will meet or exceed current municipal code. With the installation of a dimple board membrane, we are able to create a solid barrier between the soils backfilled and the concrete foundation. This reduces hydraulic pressure and assists waters ability to gravity feed into your homes perforated drainage piping system.

Finding a long term repair solution starts with our free site visit, including an evaluation and estimate. Your homes concrete foundation can have several types of deficiencies, such as cracks, cold joints or blemishes that allow water to penetrate into your living space or crawlspace under your home. Concrete foundations also settle over time and small hairline cracks can develop. During the winter months when we experience heavy rains, the ground becomes saturated with water. it is common to find that hydraulic pressure from the saturated ground outside forces water through any foundation deficiency.
Repair solutions include:
Externally excavating a hole or trench to the foundation footing, cleaning the wall and chipping the crack. Filling the crack with hydraulic repair material and sealing with two coats of foundation damp-proofing before a rigid membrane called Delta MS is installed over the affected area. All soils are then backfilled and the site put back as original.
Internal solutions have become more popular in recent years to avoid the invasive work such as excavation, break and removal of concrete and disruption of landscaping. Internal foundation repairs include epoxy and poly-urethane injection. Prime candidates include underground parkades, deep basements and areas covered by structure or concrete.

Delta MS foundation membrane cut down and repair
Yesterday our Drainrock crew attended to a customer in Surrey who needed a Delta MS cut down and repair which we notice is a common problem in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley area! As you can see in the photo above the membrane is higher than the dirt line and allows the sun and heat to deteriorate the material and cause it lose its foundation proofing purpose.
The second photo is the proper look and function of foundation damp proofing after one of our drainage technicians cut down and re-strip the top of the membrane to code requirement!
If you notice that your Delta MS Foundation Membrane is in similar condition or higher than ground level then call us today!
