LET US SOLVE YOUR WET BASEMENT PROBLEM
Under slab Drainage System
Skip the exterior excavation and waterproofing — an interior perimeter
drainage system IS THE BEST WAY TO RESOLVE ANY WATER PROBLEM!
THERE ARE NO “miracle coatings” to prevent ground-water entry with a barrier, our techniques don’t try to stop the water, but rather to manage it. Sometimes we use exterior perimeter drains and waterproofing, but more often we install water-management systems on the building’s interior. Most homeowners prefer this approach because it costs less than excavating around the foundation and is less destructive to their landscaping.
The choice of waterproof membrane comes down to what actually are you waterproofing and to what degree of protection you need. A waterproof membrane by its very title suggests that you are going to introduce a form of physical barrier to a structure to stop any water breeching the waterproof membrane and thus providing a dry and usable internal space. This requires a highly robust, durable and often flexible membrane. With over 1 billion ft installed a year in the United States membrane still seems to be an extremely popular waterproofing choice. The membrane’s jobs require special expertise and quality installations for peace of mind.
GLCWATERPROOFING can get the right product for the job at hand.
Drainage Systems removes excess water from around beds and distributes it back into the surrounding soil.
Moves water away from the foundation reducing moisture and mildew from the basement.

Protection for floor coverings over concrete
Platon is a 24-mil HDPE membrane with a unique double dimple design that gives it exceptional strength in subfloor underlayment applications. Platon forms an impermeable moisture barrier and air gap, allowing the concrete to breathe while keeping the floor dry. The finished floor is isolated from the cold damp concrete and becomes room temperature, not slab temperature. This makes it warmer in winter and odor and condensation free in summer.
Features and Benefits:
- Can be installed in conjunction with any floor covering material – carpet, vinyl, laminate or hardwood
- Eliminates musty odors, mold and mildew associated with flooring placed on concrete
- Turns basements into comfortable, livable, usable spaces
Enjoy a floor that’s warm in the winter, dry and odor free in summer (even in warm humid climates), healthy and comfortable all year round!
Mold represents a potentially significant health hazard for building occupants and a substantial liability for property owners.
GLC Waterproofing Inc. offers professional mold remediation following all EPA and OSHA guidelines as well as industry certification protocols. Remediation includes determining and eliminating the source of mold contamination, in-depth cleaning and disinfection of the affected areas, proper disposal of waste materials and protection of technicians from mold. GLC has spent many years providing mold remediation services from small residential jobs to buildings and commercial structures affected by mold. Our technicians are highly trained and certified by the MICRO (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification) in the proper procedures to restore mold-affected properties.
Containment is set up to isolate the affected area.
Air scrubbers are placed and the work environment kept under negative pressure to keep mold from spreading to other areas. Air changes are set at four changes per hour based on industry guidelines.
If testing is to be performed it will be done prior to any further remediation efforts. Depending upon the circumstances, a variety of techniques may be employed such as encapsulation, application of anti-microbial treatments, sealing, spraying, etc. Any materials requiring demolition are removed two feet past any visible mold. All areas are vacuumed with HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filtration vacuum cleaners and then wiped down with biocide. All visible mold on existing framing is sanded down. The entire affected area is then HEPA vacuumed again and retreated with biocide. Air Scrubbers are then switched to “scrub mode” and run for 24 to 48 hours. Air Scrubbers are capable of capturing virtually every removable airborne particle.
Basement Finishing System
Transforming unused basement space into usable living space is an economical and practical way to increase your home’s square footage. For years, homeowners and remodelers have struggled with basement projects because traditional building materials are not well suited to the damp conditions found in most basements. With GLC basement systems, however, those days are gone.
Our wall systems are specifically designed with water impervious materials for use in damp settings or locations subject to water intrusion – and they won’t swell, buckle or stain like conventional building materials. Plus, our special antimicrobial protection inhibits the growth of such microbes as bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause illness, stains, odors and product deterioration.
