Week 2

It's now week 2.  Finally, the basement walls are poured and we can imagine how large the house is going to be.  I saw the PM today and he told me about the waterproofing wrap around the entire basement.  Here are some details about the wrap.  He said it's much better than the waterproofing spray other contractors use.  A glue is used around the perimeter of the wrap to prevent water from penetrating.

Advantages of DELTA®-MS Foundation Waterproofing Membrane:
  • High density polyethylene is impermeable to water and water vapor
  • Outlasts the life of the structure (will not break down or disintegrate due to soil acids)
  • Non-polluting and non-toxic
  • Can be installed on damp or frosty surfaces
  • Installation is unaffected by temperatures
    (-30° to 80°+ C/-22° to 176°+ F)
  • Requires no maintenance
  • Unaffected by freeze/thaw cycles
  • Spans across all cracks and other surface defects
