High-performing foundation waterproofing

Groupe Durasec offers efficient and durable protection and waterproofing for the foundation of your home.

Why waterproof?

WATER IS A UBIQUITOUS ELEMENT IN THE SURROUNDINGS OF YOUR HOME.

The land surrounding your home naturally contains moisture. It must also properly drain sudden water flows from rainfalls, snowmelt, runoff from the roof, or even the watering of your yard. Your home may also be located in a floodplain or near a ground water table, causing your land to quickly soak up water. To keep your home dry, it is essential to protect your foundation walls according to the specifics of your property with the help of proven foundation waterproofing methods.

FROM A PERSPECTIVE OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND ECO-FRIENDLY CONSTRUCTION, THE NUMBER 1 PRODUCT CHOICE IS DEFINITELY THE RUB-R-WALL!

WHY IS FOUNDATION WATERPROOFING SO IMPORTANT?

 

Foundation waterproofing is often overlooked by home builders in favour of a simple tarring, which is certainly economic but is not resistant to cracks and damage in the long run. Tarring is not enough when there is a constant presence of water and moisture around the foundation. Only proper waterproofing can counteract these effects – it is a life-long protection that you can provide to your home as well as your own health.

OUR
METHOD

RUB-R-WALL: A COMPLETE SOLUTION FOR FOUNDATION WATERPROOFING
With the Rub-R-Wall waterproofing membrane, your foundations are completely isolated from the ground. Elastic, it may restrain spalling concrete and even cracks reaching 3.2 millimetres (1/8 inch) in width. When the Geo-Wrap drainage board is placed over the Rub-R-Wall membrane, it protects the Rub-R-Wall against any risk of deterioration and improves the drainage of runoff water along foundations.

A tar-free solution

Although it is a technique that causes pollution and is not as effective in the short or long term, tarring and bitumen-based membranes are often proposed as a foundation waterproofing solution. At Groupe Durasec we will offer you the tar-free and non-polluting solution. The RUB-R-WALL membrane does not contain anything derived from tar. Tested in a laboratory, it will remain extensible and will keep its grip for a minimum of 100 years (ASTM D412, ASTM D2240 tests).

CUSTOMERS TELL US THAT…

After foundation waterproofing work with the RUB-R-WALL membrane, there’s a lot less humidity in the air of their homes. In fact, while people who have a dehumidifier generally accumulate on average one tank’s worth of water per day, in most cases they now accumulate one every two weeks. Trusting Groupe Durasec to carry out your work is a guarantee of quality and attention to detail.

The results
of a good seal

Groupe Durasec’s exclusive technique offers you waterproofing that will protect your house from any risk of infiltration over its total lifespan. Ideally, this step is taken when building the house, but if waterproofing has not been done at that time, it’s still possible to make this improvement afterwards, regardless of the age of your house. If you also combine this with a drainage system adapted to the flows on your land, you will be assured of giving your property a promising future.
