In southern Saskatchewan, the clay-based soil can cause problems for your foundation. The soil is expansive, allows minimal drainage, and absorbs a lot of water. The soil will swell when drenched with water and contract when dry. This movement can cause the foundation wall to crack and eventually leak. If there is standing water around the house's foundation, it will find the weakest point and seep into your home. Rigid Foundation Repair's exterior waterproofing services are the perfect fix for this problem.
First, we dig down to the foundation's footing to expose it and find the source of the problem. Once exposed, we can install a socked 4-inch weeping tile to the foundation. We then roll on a blue skin primer, attach the blue skin membrane, and caulk the edges to ensure it is sealed. Next, we backfill with approximately 8 inches of crushed rock and top it off with 2/3 free drainage sand and 1/3 of native clay. Finally, we tamp the backfill to prevent further settling. Depending on the problems with your foundation, the process may include one or two walls or potentially all sides of your home.
