Anchor Job Update

The perimeter foundation is now complete and very water proof. To ensure a water tight basement we added a few things you wouldn't normally see in new construction. For starters we added Xypex to the concrete mixture, this is an extreme waterproofing chemical compound. Then we used a strip Bentonite clay between the sections and at every other joint where new concrete was being poured against cured concrete (the black strip adhered to the side of the partial foundation - see picture). Bentonite reacts with moisture by swelling on contact, this provides a self sealing, low permeability barrier within the concrete. To finish it off we will apply a top coat of Xypex to the entire foundation which will later be covered with insulation and drywall. 

If you or someone you know is thinking about underpinning their foundation call our team of experts @ (250) 634-1989 or fill out a free consultation request on our website www.victoriarenovations.ca. — with Byron Deziel.

We have begun pouring concrete. The engineer has instructed us to pour the perimeter foundation in four sections A-D. For a regular pouring of foundation you would wrap the exterior of the concrete with dimple board after the pour and backfill with dirt after that, a very simple process. We however are underpinning an existing 100 year old foundation from the inside of the house with no room to dig on the outside as there is a driveway. To make sure the basement stays dry for the life of the house we are using dimple board with a non woven filter cloth liner. The cloth gets pushed up against the sandy wet clay and as the water approaches the house it goes through the filter cloth and trickles in between the dimples down to weep holes which are in every 4' section. The weep holes lead the water into the engineered interior perimeter drain and thus into the sanitary sewer line at the street.

There are too many wet basements in Victoria and this home will never be one of them.
