Watch builders Travis Brungardt and Mike Guertin plus masonry-sealer expert Lance Lang in a roundtable discussion. They will discuss methods and materials for keeping basements dry.
If you are building a new home or remodeling an older one and it has a basement, waterproofing is essential. New builds offer opportunities that are often not possible in older homes. That’s where we’ll start this webinar: with the ideally water-managed new basement.
They discuss how they use footing drains, damp proofing, waterproofing, dimple matts, grading, and managing roof loads. Moving on to the methods and materials you can use, mostly working from the inside to manage a leaky, existing basement.
Basements are a huge concern for builders, homeowners, and remodelers in the industry. Often the solutions are complex and expensive as we all agree it’s easier to get it right the first time. Thank you all for being here to learn more about Basement Waterproofing Systems in this roundtable discussion!
