Ultra-Shield GMX

Durham Exterior Wall Waterproofing

At Regional Foundation & Crawl Space Repair, we are proud to offer comprehensive exterior waterproofing services to our Durham customers, using innovative Ultra-Shield membrane products. 

Ultra-Shield is a polymer-modified sealer that offers outstanding elastomeric properties at an affordable cost. It is specifically formulated to be used as the membrane component for exterior wall waterproofing systems. Ultra-Shield creates a robust and durable membrane that effectively covers and fills cracks due to shrinkage, effectively resisting the growth of mold, fungus, and bacteria. Additionally, it maintains its high-performance qualities even up against various soil chemicals.

Maximizes Living Space

If you want a drier, more livable basement, the Ultra-Shield from GMX is an effective solution to achieve this. With the addition of this insulating layer, you can achieve better equalization of air temperatures between indoors and out, reducing condensation and minimizing freeze/thaw damage on the walls.

Economical, "Quick Dry" Application

Thanks to the fast-drying, resilient qualities of the Ultra-Shield spray application, installation is quick and hassle-free. It can be applied to block walls as soon as the mortar dries, and on poured walls right after removal of the forms, in temperatures down to 20°F. This saves on time and cost of labor.

The Custom-Tailored Waterproofing System

Our exterior waterproofing specialists in Durham can tailor the Ultra-Shield application to suit your unique property. It can be made to work with a range of insulation boards and drainage options, for a comprehensive moisture-reduction strategy.

Exterior Membrane

Durable, Long-Term Membrane Protection

Ultra-Shield creates a durable, flexible seal that outperforms traditional waterproofing products for below-grade wall surfaces. It effectively resists the growth of mold, microbial and chemical damage, and maintains its integrity even after extended exposure to soil and water. For added peace of mind, you can get a limited 10-year warranty on labor and materials. Moreover, the Ultra-Shield waterproofing system can help reduce energy use in your home. Uninsulated basement walls are a major source of heat loss, but adding insulation boards to the Ultra-Shield system minimizes this loss and saves on energy costs.

GMX Ultra-Shield Installation

To make sure your property qualifies for the warranty, our Durham exterior waterproofing experts follow these GMX installation procedures:

  • Ensure dry, strong foundation walls and footings. We don’t apply Ultra-Shield in standing water, and we allow concrete or mortar to cure for 16 hours before applying.
  • Remove debris and excess mortar from foundation walls and footings. We repair cracks or honeycombed concrete with non-shrinking grout.
  • Fill minor voids with solvent-based asphalt mastic.
  • Spray apply Ultra-Shield at a rate of 20-25 sq. ft. per gallon. Apply more on unparged block surfaces. We don’t apply below 20°F, and heat to 120° to 160°F before application.
  • Touch up uncovered areas with a coat of Ultra-Shield. Brush out excess to a ⅛ inch thickness.
  • Within one to three hours, install a board for drainage, insulation, or protection and press firmly into place.
  • Install drain tile according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
  • Grade backfill to direct surface water away from exterior foundation walls.
