Figuring foundation waterproofing
My contracted project is underway and I have chosen to do my own waterproofing as the builder planned for simply hot applied asphalt and j drain tile . As you see in pic it is a walkout with a full front porch and my builder sees no reason to anymore . Id like to apply drain board , dimple mat , pvc and gravel, polyurethane waterproofing ( tremco 250gc r )
the full footer and wall of the porch has me perplexed. Do I waterproof that as well , run pipe inside / outside of that area , or both?or just fill with dirt and cap with slab.
The ground in the area percs well and I am near top of a slope , I see no big water issues. But then again I dont want to make an irriversible mistake. Ps- I will have to settle with pipe on top of footer as in most area no form was used
