Topic: Basement waterproofing

Hi

i am having a basement of about 400 sq feet in my under construction house, the walls & column work is already over and outside plaster is going on, the slab casting shall start in a weeks time, i read about water proofing importance & decided to call some expert, recently a representative from MYK Schomburg visited the site and suggested me to use his products and services, he has quoted a fee of about Rs. 35000/- for doing the entire job with 10 years warranty,

i need your feedback on the company and its product & its realibility, should i really go for such waterproofing or i should use old time method of applying tar coal (Damar) based product ?

Kindly help me on the subject

Dear Jitendra

            In my view the old method is also very good but in this you or your repersentative should watch the work because some time to save material, labor/ contractor dilute the bitumen by adding old black oil and save material and labor.Secondly you should purase the material your self and do the work with labor.

Care should be taken that no space is left without treatment i.e. if there are pin holes etc that do the area after one or two days. Before doing the process there should be no any dust on the wall.

Post subject: basement water proofing with trenches

The alternate method for basement water proofing is by providing  network of trenches inside the buildings.Drain this water to a small sump for collection of seepage waterand pumping this out to the muncipal drain by installing pump with auto level controller
