How the Parks’ Waterproofing System Works
The patented Parks’ Free-Flowing Waterproofing System is not a passive installation. Rather than acting as a simple barrier against water, Parks’ Waterproofing’s system is a multi-layered application that is designed to ensure that water is effectively directed away from your foundation and basement walls. Interior waterproofing membranes do not always provide adequate protection. Your foundation and basement walls are exposed to the corrosive force of water.
With the patented Parks’ Free-Flowing Waterproofing System, your home is protected with a number of features, including:
- Waterproofing membrane
- Termite-treated protective insulation board (increases the R-Value of your home)
- A high-quality filter fabric that surrounds the entire system
- 4” wall of washed stone surrounding the perimeter that allows for drainage
- Concrete shelf diverting water from foundation
- Double French drain (eliminates hydrostatic pressure)
These features work together, ensuring that water never reaches your foundation slabs or basement walls. All moisture is drained away from the property, and hydrostatic pressure is completely eliminated. Conventional interior waterproofing membranes do not prevent water from infiltrating foundations or basements.
Prevent Foundation or Basement Wall Damage
Foundations and basement walls are among the most integral structures in any property. If these structures are compromised, it can result in significant damage throughout the property. Although you may not be able to see your foundation, damage can manifest in visible ways. Doors that jam or gaps above window frames and exterior doors may indicate a damaged foundation.
Cracks or gaps in the foundation or basement walls allow moisture to seep into your home. Mildew, humidity and structural damage are just some of the problems you may encounter. The patented Parks’ Free-Flowing Waterproofing System is proven to effectively eliminate water seepage.
