Oh No, Don't Let the Rain come in....

The forms were removed the day after the concrete was poured and a few days later the process of waterproofing the foundation began. On day one, Nuno and Vera sprayed on a latex based product to seal the exterior concrete. On day two, they applied the 2-ply membrane to the walls with special fasteners. Once the backfilling is completed around the outside of the foundation the pressure of the soil will complete the process of sealing the membrane to the wall. We anticipate that we will never have any water leakage issues with this system. According to Nuno, "this is as good as it gets!"
