Disappointing results. You May have heard claims that your basements a can be made dry without digging a a this process tries to inject a sealing material called bentonite sometimes called Vollay and Hydro Lay by pumping it under pressure around the exterior of the basement or foundation the material is supposed to penetrate the soil and set up a Bond against the porous areas of the foundation. But in areas of compacted or Clay like soil. The material does not penetrate satisfactorily and does not Seal off leakage authorities report. In one Case on record a waterproofing company claimed that its method would keep basements dry permanently in actual fact the method did not solve leakage in at least half of its applications because of weather soil and topographical conditions with which the process can to Cope. Complaints also have been made that the method has been promoted As a government approved a or that the company will provide government bulletins on the problem actually the Federal housing administration will not insure financing for a basement waterproofing process using this method. Many of the complaints involve the guarantee in some cases in better business Bureau files operators have refused to Honor guarantees and sometimes even have gone out of business leaving Many complaints unadjusted. Some waterproofing guarantees really done to guarantee to Waterproof the basement but merely to provide service for any persisting leaks for one year. But charge an extra fee for the balance of the five year contract a listing or and in the yellow pages a 10-year guarantee a to replace All material used against deterioration at no does that mean provide the materials but you pay for the labor9 a phone Call found that the Homeowner would have to pay a $25 labor charge for each return visit. Another company advertises a $50,000 termite warranty. Questioning reveals that this is an exaggerated Promise to pay for any repairs up to $50,000 due to further termite damage within one veal any termite damage within a year could hardly amount to More than a few Hundred dollars perhaps the most dubious claim is that there will be a no outside digging before the operator even inspects your House the fact is outside digging often is necessary to reach and really Seal a crack or apply a Waterproof Barrier sometimes even regrading of the adjacent land and dry Wells May be needed to keep water away from the foundation if a High water table is causing leakage through floors or joints a pressure Relief system May be necessary a study by the Pennsylvania Bureau of consumer Protection concluded that bentonite a cannot Seal areas through which water can readily penetrate Quot and that the Clay injection method could not achieve a uniform and continuous coating in a major Case the Federal Trade commission also found that bentonite injection methods won t Seal All types of basement Walls floors and foundations against leaks not keep basements dry permanently. Also interesting in View of the trend of waterproofed who Promise termite Protection is the Etc statement that this method does not provide termite shielding since both genuine and deceptive waterproofing is expensive homeowners May be Able to do some of the work themselves or at least minor jobs. Certainly the caulking of basement windows promised by waterproofing companies is easy enough. So in inspection of gutters and downspouts to make sure they Aren t clogged or rusted thus dumping water along the foundation. Waterproofing materials Are available from building Supply houses.
