New Basements - PLATON Foundation Protector
SYSTEM PLATON FOUNDATION PROTECTOR
To Insure A Dry Healthy Basement
Damp basements promote the growth of unhealthy spores, mold, mildew, fungus and musty odors.
As well as being unpleasant, these can cause allergies and respiratory problems.
Damp basements also cause damage to walls, floors and finishes and certainly affect articles kept in the basement!
System Platon not only keeps water out, it also dries out the foundation in a way that spray on products can't match!
HOW IT WORKS
System Platon, a tough, waterproof, dimpled plastic membrane, holds wet soil 1/4" away from the foundation wall. The air gap thus formed eliminates water pressure on the wall so even large cracks behind the membrane won't leak. If punctured, water finding its way past the membrane flows to the footing drain, not into the basement.
As an added benefit, basement moisture condenses on the back of the Platon membrane and drops to the footing drain for removal.
PAY A LITTLE NOW - SAVE A LOT LATER!
The money you save by skimping on foundation protection is no saving at all.
Leaky basements are homeowners most annoying complaint and the most expensive to correct.
Most homeowners insurance does not cover water damage from leaking foundations. If yours does, the deductible may have paid for the waterproofing upgrade!!!
A damp wall has less insulating value than a fully dry wall. To reduce heating costs it is important that a wall is able to dry out and stay dry.
System Platon + Good Footing Drainage = Dry Basement
