Sponsored by DRYLOK Masonry Waterproofer
Whether you are building a new home or remodeling an older one, if it has a basement, waterproofing is essential. New builds offer opportunities that are often not possible in older homes, and that’s where we’ll start this webinar: with the ideally water-managed new basement.
Once the principles of footing drains, damp proofing, waterproofing, dimple matts, grading, and managing roof loads are explained, we’ll move on to the methods and materials you can use, mostly working from the inside to manage a leaky, existing basement.
