House Foundation Repair

Extensive Foundation Water Proofing in Kelowna.

1
Day one, mobilization to site and create path to and from rear yard. In this image the negative slope towards the house was most visible at a couple of inches.
2
Removal of concrete slab to allow for room to work, it was noted that the slab had negative slope towards the home.
3
Functioning irrigation lines where encountered. Some of said lines did not have glued together Bell Ends as we where able to disconnect at joints.
4
Cracks where uncovered above and below grade and some align with slab elevation.
5
Foundation wall once exposed received a new layer of damp proofing. Once that had time to cure and set we applied a new 3m Foundation seal 3015 tape for added protection from water intrusion.
6
3M 3015 tape applied, the water observed is from a live and holing water irrigation line.
7
Further excavation revealed an electrical conduit exiting the foundation wall. This was in the previously slab and could be a potential point of further water intrusion. It is recommended that this be secured and attached in accordance with local building codes.
8
Existing perimeter drainage exposed and found sitting on top of the footing.
9

Rather than running new lines, we tied into the existing perimeter drainage system. The previous system was found in only earth material. This made it not free draining and would cause the system to not wick water as designed.

Please not the lower layer of landscape fabric below the newly installed perimeter drainage system.

10
We then cover the pipe as per code with drain rock.
11
Exposed irrigation lines are capped and set for retirement.
12
Rock graded above perimeter drainage system. Paint lines on wall are at 1 foot increments for compaction purposes.
13
Rock installed and is then covered with additional land- scape carpet.
14
Compaction being performed in lifts.
15
Further compaction being performed in lifts.
16
Removal of excess spoils.
