If your basement protected?

The snow has melted in southern Ontario the last couple of days thanks to the great deal of rain we’ve received. Do you sometimes wonder how a contractor is able to protect your house’s foundation from water?  Or what happens when there’s a leak in your basement – why there was no protection?  Maybe you’re missing DMX 5M Drainage Membrane.

I recently had the pleasure of working with DMX Plastics, a company that specializes in ground water control products.  The featured product that I illustrated was a drainage membrane that is placed against a concrete foundation and allows for proper flow away from the foundation.

The challenge with this technical illustration was creating a visual that gave an overview that set the scene for the product, as well as showcasing the features of the product.  We achieved this through a zoom-in section on the illustration that showed details of the various layers.

It was a pleasure working with Steve and Paula on this illustration!
