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.
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 Do-It-Yourself Kit
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.

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.

Portable dehumidifiers have a lower capacity for dehumidification so they run constantly, which can lead to electrical failure and house fires. Hundreds of these dehumidifiers found at big box retail stores have caught fire, resulting in $24 million in damage.WATCH NEWS STORY
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.

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.”

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.
