COLVIN CONCRETE, INC. 20 YEAR DRY FLOOR SYSTEM
ENDS WET BASEMENT PROBLEMS
Wet Basements are a problem in new and old homes alike, and the solution can be disruptive and expensive. Now there is a solution for new home builders that's easy, inexpensive or free, and warranted for 20 years!! Floor EdgingTM is an L shaped molding that forms a space between the edge of the walls, and across the footing. This space allows all water to drain down into the stone aggregate under the floor, not on top of the floor. It is then drained to the sump pit and pumped out. This product will ensure that the floor stays dry regardless of what happens to the walls or footing drains Just keep the stone under the floor drained with normal sump pump and your basement is dry forever!!
Floor EdgingTM - Floor Edging was designed to be used with concrete floor slabs of varying thickness (3" - 8"). Therefore, in most residential basement slabs of 4" thick, there would be about 1.5" of Floor Edging showing above the top surface of the finished floor. If the basement walls are going to be finished, we recommend not cutting the excess Floor Edging off. If the walls are not going to be finished and the homeowner objects to the Floor Edging showing, above the slab, it is a simple procedure to cut floor edging off at top of floor with a common roofer's knife.
