WallSeal™ Basement Wall Vapor Barrier

Your basement doesn’t have to be damp and musty. In fact, dampness can present significant hazards to your property and loved ones. 

The AquaStop WallSeal™ Basement Wall Vapor Barrier, combined with our cutting-edge waterproofing techniques, provides unparalleled moisture defense for your basement. 

Foundation Recovery Systems, a pioneer in basement waterproofing, has more than three decades of experience and installs only high-quality vapor barriers to protect your home from potential water-related problems.

What is the AquaStop WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier? 

The AquaStop WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier is a robust 12-mil thick sheet designed to prevent moisture from passing through basement walls. It is fastened securely to the walls, directing any water into our advanced AquaStop BasementGutter™ internal drainage system, offering an immediate solution for wet walls. 

The integration of a vapor barrier with additional waterproofing technologies like a sump pump and dehumidifier reinforces your property and enhances its value.

Is a Basement Wall Vapor Barrier Necessary? 

Often, yes. A basement wall vapor barrier is a crucial component of an effective basement waterproofing plan. Moisture may penetrate even seemingly solid walls due to the porous characteristics of concrete, leading to unnoticed water damage and increasing the complexity and cost of future repairs. 

Address this concern ahead of time by installing the AquaStop WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier, a crucial component of our whole-home approach to maintaining a dry and healthy residence. 

What Are the Benefits of the AquaStop WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier? 

Our durable vapor barrier offers several advantages, including:   

  • Enduring Defense: Crafted from premium materials, our barrier assures long-lasting protection. 
  • Healthy Living: It reduces humidity and prevents mold, promising a healthier habitat. 
  • Elimination of Musty Odors: WallSeal™ blocks moisture, stopping unpleasant odors, particularly when used with a dehumidifier. 
  • Property Value Enhancement: A meticulously maintained dry basement increases the market value of your property. 

To maximize the benefits of the AquaStop WallSeal™ vapor barrier, proper installation is vital. Foundation Recovery Systems’ certified experts utilize proprietary products and processes to guarantee a dry, healthy basement.  

How the AquaStop WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier Works   

Once a qualified inspector from Foundation Recovery Systems determines the AquaStop WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier is necessary, it is incorporated into our extensive waterproofing solutions. 

The process includes: 

  • Preparatory wall cleansing 
  • Secure affixing of AquaStop WallSeal™ sheets 
  • Installation of internal drainage and other components 
  • Strategical placement of the sump pump 
  • Connecting drainage to the sump pump 
  • Installation of basement dehumidifier 

Here is how the complete system works:  

  • If water leaks in through basement walls, it automatically runs behind WallSeal™.  
  • WallSeal™ directs leaking water to the interior drainage system.  
  • Water in the drains flows into the sump pump.  
  • The sump pump removes water collected in its basin.  
  • The dehumidifier removes any remaining basement moisture.  

When Foundation Recovery System installs these essential water management components, you receive a professional installation you can trust.
