If you require foundation waterproofing in the Winnipeg region, contact the pros at Saber Industries Inc. Over the last 25 years, our company has used many different kinds of waterproofing materials on foundation walls. We have found using the spray applied membrane to work the best and have continued to use this method for the past 7-10 years with great success! We are the only foundation contractor in Manitoba with this type membrane. The biggest advantage to using the spray applied waterproofing membrane is that most existing foundation walls are not a smooth surface, therefore, using a liquid membrane covers the entire surface with no air pockets. This can also be applied on top of the footing making a complete waterproofed seal.
On all jobs Saber Industries Inc. carries out, we install a minimum of 1’’ of styrofoam insulation to cover the membrane. This will protect the membrane from being damaged and also give an R-5 insulating value. All jobs are backfilled with clean drainage stone. This will create proper drainage as well as eliminate as much inward pressure as possible. The R-5 insulation will make up heat loss due to backfilling with the clean stone.
Peal and stick membranes are very good as long as you have a completely straight and smooth surface to apply them to. Peal and stick membranes will not stick to a rough surface and it is very difficult to make a watertight seal where the wall and the footing meet. Although Saber Industries Inc. is certified to install this type of membrane, it is mainly used on new construction.
Note: Saber Industries Inc. is certified to install all types of waterproofing membranes.
