Drying in the roof means making it so that water falling on the roof does not penetrate and enter the house. Since we are going to install Davinci synthetic slate on the roof, a special self adhering membrane underlayment is installed on the roof.

We are applying the Rub-R wall product to waterproof the foundation walls. When the Rub-R wall product is used, the company warrants all the areas covered by the Rub-R wall product not to leak for the life of the foundation.

The forms were lowered into the basement and now they are being installed so that the concrete foundation walls can be poured.

Drain tile is a corrugated pipe with small slits covered with a fabric sleeve. The drain tile is then covered with gravel. The slits let water enter the pipe and the fabric sleeve prevents larger soil objects to enter the pipe. The purpose of the drain tile is to collect the water around the basement foundation and divert it to the sump pump pit and then it is pumped out of the house and away from the foundation.

We had the inspection from the Village of Glenview on the footings prior to pouring the concrete and got the green light so we poured the concrete. The next step will be to frame the foundation walls and schedule a pre-pour inspection.

Demolition has been completed and excavation has started on our new construction in Morton Grove. During excavation, the banks need to be protected so they don’t collapse so plywood and steel is used to shore the banks. The shoring is covered with heavy plastic to protect the banks from any erosion by heavy rains.

We have torn down the first house and will start start tearing down the second house this coming week. It is amazing how a house can be demolished in about a day and it takes many months to build.
