DMX – Air-Gap

Experience ultimate protection against moisture, mold, and mildew with the Aqua Bloc 720-38 HYDRO GUARD drainage membrane. This top-tier barrier is crafted from recycled plastics to ensure durability and resilience. It is designed to securely wrap around cracked and weeping concrete walls, preventing water from penetrating your home. RCC Waterproofing, a professional waterproofing contractor, uses the HYDRO GUARD membrane as part of their waterproofing system to provide superior protection for your basement.

The air-gap drainage membrane is rolled out and positioned on the exterior foundation wall, with the raised dimples facing away from the wall. Afterward, the drainage membrane is fastened to the basement foundation wall with specialized plastic washers and concrete fasteners. To cap off the installation, a horizontal plastic strip is placed on top of the drainage membrane to prevent water from getting trapped between the wall and membrane. Once the air-gap drainage membrane is properly installed, weeping tile and 3/4 inch gravel can be added to the trench to finish the waterproofing system.

This advanced drainage membrane outlasts conventional damp proofing materials and is EPA-rated for an incredible lifespan of 300 years. It directs water into weeping tiles and is not affected by frost or settlement. The membrane forms a protective layer independent of the structure, ensuring long-lasting protection against water damage. The complete installation of this exterior water protection system can be carried out in a day or less.

The HYDRO GUARD drainage membrane provides control of mold, mildew fungus, and musty odors, eliminating unhealthy spores and gases. It offers relief from allergies and prevents water damage to wood, brick, and concrete. Additionally, it reduces heating and dehumidifying costs and provides warmth instead of cold, damp rooms during the winter months. In the summer, it offers comfort instead of sultry humidity. With its incredible benefits, the Aqua Bloc 720-38 HYDRO GUARD drainage membrane also increases your property value and adds “saleability” to your home.
