Rubber is the best way to protect your exterior foundation walls from water infiltration. Its like "putting your foundation in rubber boots". It just makes sense doesn't it? If its raining out...what do you put on your feet? tar boots!?? NO! You put rubber boots on your feet! Some products on the market are Asphalt based but rubber enhanced. Our Flagship Waterproofing Product Rub-R-Wall is the only 100% liquid rubber foundation waterproofing product on the market that comes with a amazing LIFETIME WARRANTY!
The best part about this amazing waterproofing membrane is that we have to be certified to install it. We dont just go to the local hardware store and pick up something off the shelf. To apply the rubber we travel for training to keep current with new technology. On our Waterproofing truck, we have a truck mounted sprayer. Yes to apply the rubber membrane we spray the foundation walls. When you spray the membrane you get a better adhesion to the substrate or foundation walls. When the membrane is glued or troweled on, you do not "achieve a maximum adhesion to the substrate". In other words, it doesn't stick as well to the walls of the foundation.
That's not the only characteristic of the sprayer. We also heat the rubber as it is sprayed on. Heating the rubber makes it alot more plyable than membranes that you buy in a bucket or a peel and stick membrane you buy in a roll. So next time you get a quote for foundation waterproofing....make sure we are one of them! If you can get a superior product for the same value why not? Your home is your castle. Its your biggest Investment, It is your shelter, your home and you deserve the best!
