BASEMENT WATERPROOFING DIMPLE BOARD

Dimple Board is made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic. It can be used as part of a waterproofing drainage system, exterior wrapping or as a basement floor vapor barrier.

FIX A LEAKING BASEMENT

The basement waterproofing DRY-UP Baseboard DIY Kit is a unique water control channel that attaches to the existing concrete floor to prevent water seepage from passing out onto the basement floor.

STRAIGHTEN WALLS IN 1 DAY

Gorilla Wall Braces® are patented and Professional Engineer tested to safely and effectively stabilize bowing or buckling block/poured walls from the inside of your basement.

DRY-UP Dimple Board

A dimpled waterproofing membrane made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic. The dimples in the membrane are 5/16” in height, creating a 5/16” airgap or drainage space between the wall and the back of the membrane. The DRY-UP™ Dimple Board can be ordered in a variety of different widths.

 

USE FOR BASEMENT WATERPROOFING

The DRY-UP™ Dimple Board is a waterproofing membrane that is “dimpled” so a wall can breathe. This allows moisture to condensate outward so it falls by gravity through the “dimples” in the DRY-UP™ Dimple Board to be directed to a drainage system and channeled away to the sump pump.

  

  

USE AS FLOOR VAPOR BARRIER OR UNDERLAYMENT

DRY-UP™ Dimple Board can be used as a vapor barrier under a sub floor or over concrete to eliminate cold and damp floors. The DRY-UP™ Dimple Board can be also used as an underlayment in crawlspaces before installing a Crawlspace Liner.

USE FOR EXTERIOR WRAPPING

The DRY-UP™ Dimple Board can be used on exterior basement walls to prevent soil and/or backfill material from touching the wall itself. The backfill rests on the outside of the Dimple Board and surface water cannot penetrate through the high density plastic.

 This is a quality dimple board that can be bent around corners without cracking, giving a protective membrane against any moisture intrusion. The “dimples” allow surface water to fall by gravity to the bottom and migrate into the drainage system at the footing to be drained away from your basement wall.

DRY-UP Baseboard System Advantages

• Waterproofing can be done any time of year

• No digging up the yard or basement floor

• Designed to look like a finished basement

• A proven system that works!

 

The DRY-UP Baseboard System is a water control channel that is designed to look like a finished baseboard. The hollow vinyl baseboard is 5 inches tall and extends 2 inches from the wall.

To install, the concrete floor needs to be throughly cleaned. The adhesive bond is an intregal part of this basement waterproofing system so the floor has to be cleaned as per specifications following the instructions provided, using the special tools included in the DIY waterproofing kit.

  

The vinyl baseboard is then attached to the existing concrete floor with high-strength space-age polymer adhesive. Water coming in from where the floor and wall meet is then captured in the DRY-UP™ Baseboard System and channeled around to a sump pump, keeping your basement floor dry.

  

The DRY-UP™ Baseboard Kit can be used with any type of foundation including poured concrete walls, brick or stone walls, and block walls. When waterproofing block walls, holes are drilled into the hollows of the blocks to ensure proper drainage and alleviate water build up inside the basement wall.

AprilAire Dehumidifiers

Prevent the STINK!

High humidity in basements creates an environment where mold and mildew can grow. Mildew has a milder, musty smell – the odor is usually compared to wet socks. Mold odor is stronger and pungent.

The key to mold and mildew control is moisture control.

More Energy Efficient

AprilAire – E100 Dehumidfiers have been recognized as ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient for 2022 – delivering 23% energy savings over conventional dehumidifiers. AprilAire Dehumidifiers cost about $216 less to run during the summer than a cheaper retail model.

 

Better Design = Longer Life

Portable dehumidifiers need to cycle on and off more frequently, causing their compressors to wear down. In contrast, AprilAire Dehumidifiers drop the relative humidity 3% below the set point so it cycles on and off less, reducing the energy use and compressor cycling which extends the life of the compressor.

I have an 80 year old cinderblock basement that was separating on the seems and bowing. I had several contractors give me quotes between 15 and 25 thousand dollars to repair. Way too much money for me so I researched a number of wall brace companies and was immediately impressed with the Resch Inc Gorilla brace system. I saved so much money and Andy at Resch was an incredible help answering all of my questions over several phone calls. I HIGHLY recommend going on line and checking out their Gorilla brace and many other products. As far as I’m concerned it is the best wall brace product on the market!

Andy and the folks at Resch Enterprises were fantastic to work with and were flexible in meeting my needs. I had a basement wall that was slightly bowing in and their perpendicular Gorilla Braces worked perfectly to partially close the bowing gap and provide significant additional support. My installation was slightly unconventional based on the recommended practices from Resch Enterprises, but a personal phone call from the owner allowed me to work through the details and make sure I was getting a product that would suit my needs. If you are looking for a quality wall brace system for your bowing block wall, look no further! I installed seven braces in about 3hrs time.

Purchased seven Gorilla Braces for a bowed basement wall made of brick. These were combined with locally sourced steel beams. I was very happy with the quality of design and construction. Resch Enterprises is family-run and they know basements! They are highly recommended

Excellent customer service, excellent product, they were extremely helpful in the whole process from beginning to end. In fact it almost seemed too easy. I have a poorly built 70 year old block wall that was bowing and shearing due to large clay deposits and poor drainage. The system was able to remedy the bow and give me confidence that any block movement was ceased. Photos don't do justice to the massive improvement. I went from the beams being about 2-5 inches away from the wall to near plumb within a weekend.

My experience with Resch Enterprises was among the best I could have hoped for as a consumer and do-it-yourself type. The quality of the product, accuracy and speed of the delivery, and their customer service was 5-star worthy. I made an error with the order yet they were very gracious to correct it when I made them aware. Becky was great with that. I’ve often purchased product in my personal and professional life and dealing with Resch restored my belief in American entrepreneurship and a desire to exceed expectations. I highly recommend them.

Great Problem Solvers I did some research and decided to contact Resch Enterprises to solve a basement wall problem. It had been back filled too soon after construction many years ago. Resch Enterprises did very well for me. The hardware was 100% complete and high quality. The shipping was right on target the date and followup support and instructions were great. Andy and his team members are wonderful with shared expertise and technical support! I can see, and prove with measurements, that the beam installation will do the job. This was a good solution my project. Thank you. Sincerely, John in Central Wisconsin

I have researched quite a bit about various ways to correct bowed basement walls. After narrowing things down, I contacted Resch Enterprises to discuss their Gorilla Wall Braces. I spoke directly with Andy Resch, who answered all my questions and had the braces at my door next day (I live in Illinois). Within just a few days, my wall is almost completely straight and I must say that I'm truly impressed. If you have the recommended tools and a little DIY skill, its a fairly easy job.

The gorilla system works awesome. My wall was about 2 1/2”out. I excavated the dirt away from the basement wall to waterproof at the same time. Gorilla system was easy to install and my walls were straight with just a couple hours of work. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Gorilla Wall Braces® Review

“I was quoted over $30,000 for this repair and I completed all of the work for less than $4000 for 2 houses!”

“I am happy to report that I have successfully moved the wall back to the original position and closed the cracks in the back house .The main house still has some open cracks but the top of the wall is returned to plumb and the visible cracking has been significantly reduced.”

Gorilla Wall Braces® are the only Professional Engineer-Stamped DIY solution to straighten bowing basement walls.

BEFORE/AFTER GORILLA WALL BRACES
Gorilla Wall Braces®

Available for PERPENDICULAR & PARALLEL basement walls.

Patented, engineer-stamped and better designed!

Works on BLOCK & POURED CONCRETE basement walls.

Gorilla Wall Braces® are the only DIY product in the industry that have been through stress and pressure engineering tests – earning a Professional Engineer Stamp approval as a safe and effective solution to fix bowing basement walls.

Fixing Basement Walls PERPENDICULAR to the Floor Joist
Unique in the industry, PERPENDICULAR Gorilla Wall Braces® straighten bowing basement walls by utilizing the support of three floor joists. This patented design distributes the wall loads more evenly to reduce side pressure to the floor joists, which in turn prevents the floor joists from buckling or twisting which can happen in other basement wall straightening systems that push off only one or two floor joists.

Fixing Basement Walls PARALLEL to the Floor Joist
PARALLEL Gorilla Wall Braces® are secured similarly so they evenly distribute basement walls loads over multiple floor joists – a superior DIY basement wall straightening solution.
