Webinar: Waterproofing a Concrete Foundation

Date: Dec 13, 2023

Duration: 1 Hr

Whether working in commercial or residential construction, concrete contractors must deliver foundations that don't leak. Properly constructed or repaired foundation systems will intercept and/or collect to restrict water leaking into the structure's basement. With proper preplanning, contractors can adopt a practical approach.

For new construction, we will focus on the discussion that should occur in the pre-construction meeting. Contractors can bring up the subject of waterproofing when reviewing several sections in the NRMCA/ASCC Checklist for the Concrete Pre-Construction Conference. Our experts will discuss how contractors should construct a waterproof foundation by focusing on water stops, mix designs and surface treatments.

Unfortunately, there can be instances when a concrete foundation leaks. Managing the owner's expectations concerning the scope of work and repair options is best controlled with an effective pre-construction meeting.  

The learning objectives of this session will focus on the "how-tos" of three key factors: 

  • Ensuring water stops, joint fillers and exterior coatings are correctly installed to prevent water intrusion.

  • Specifying performance concrete mix designs to restrict water movement.

  • Managing an owner's expectations of a residential foundation repair.

Contractors, architects and engineers who attend this webinar will be given a Certificate of Attendance for self-reporting certification purposes.
