Plastic and Concrete!

Do you know the difference between polyolefin and polyethylene?  Did you know there were different types of plastics available?  A lot of people think plastic is plastic and that is just not the case.  Polyethylene is the most common plastic and it is used as a vapor barrier by the competition.  It typically is only 4-mil thick and it will break down over time especially when concrete is poured over it.  The corrosive agents in the concrete like lime will eat through the non treated plastic and eventually there will be no vapor barrier. 

 

When you use plastic under concrete you need to use a stronger plastic.  That is why Concrete Crawlspaces uses polyolefin.  When combining plastic and concrete there has to be something protecting the plastic.  Our vapor matt is chemically treated to protect from break down.  It is 10-mil thick, over twice as thick as our competitors.  The plastic we use under the concrete will last the lifetime of the home and we stand by that by offering a lifetime transferrable warranty.

 

Other companies don’t use concrete at all and they just do layers of the polyethylene, 4-mil, plastic.  This method will never last the lifetime of the home and will always fail.  From over 30 years of experience using a 10-mil chemically treated plastic and concrete we know our way works and will always work.  For more information on a real solution get a free estimate here!

Repair Your Crawl Space

Are you looking for a real solution to repair your crawl space?  Have you ever thought about having someone repair your crawlspace, but then decided it was less important than another repair?  There are hundreds of thousands of unfinished crawl spaces in the Chicago Land area that are damaging homes.  If you have an unfinished crawl space and are reading this please read the whole article.  Concrete Crawlspaces & Basement Waterproofing has a solution for you!  It is a real solution for repairing your crawl space that I will discuss here.

The current building codes prohibit a builder to leave an unfinished surface under the home.  Back in the mid 90’s it was a common occurrence to have a home built with an unfinished surface.  They did it like that to save money that is it.  Back then they were not aware of the health issues it could cause and they sure didn’t know that an unfinished crawl space could damage the rest of the home just by being exposed.

The remedy for an unfinished crawl space is a system that Concrete Crawlspaces & Basement Waterproofing has perfected and works time and time again.  Concrete Crawlspaces & Basement Waterproofing has tested their resolve and will put there system up to any other companies.

First thing Concrete Crawlspaces & Basement Waterproofing will do is protect your home with plastic and tarps.  A crew, of 4-5 guys, will come in and trench the perimeter and check the walls for foundation cracks.  Each guy has a specific job, but all the guys have been trained on the how to perform all the duties.  While they are trenching the perimeter and installing drain tile the foundation cracks are being filled with a 2-part epoxy.  It is inserted every 6 inches to make sure that it is sealed completely form the inside out.  A pit is dug out and a Zoeller pump is installed.  Now that the pump, drain tile, and cracks are sealed drainage board is placed up the walls above grade incase in the future any new cracks are formed.  The 10 mil chemically treated vapor barrier is installed and 4 inches of fiber mesh reinforced concrete is poured.   The guys smooth it off with a darby finish and clean up.  This is how it should be done every time.  With this you will receive a lifetime transferrable warranty.  If you want to repair your crawl space permanently apply here for a free estimate.
