Exterior Basement Waterproofing
Waterproofing foundation walls from the outside is a good solution to protect the house from leaks. To do this, the foundation wall has to be excavated all the way down to the footing, then, it needs to be cleaned and inspected for cracks.
At DrainCom, we give our customers a 25-year warranty. We make sure to advise our customers about, and, perform, the best technique for fixing walls.
The advantage of basement waterproofing done from the outside is that it protects the walls from exposure to water or moisture. When performing exterior waterproofing, we get access to the foundation drain and we replace it. It is also a good time to check the connection of the weeping tile to the drain or sump to make sure it is working properly.
In case it does not, our technicians will advise you about the best solution to fix it.
Basement waterproofing is a serious task, and, it begins with proper diagnosis.
When calling for a free inspection, our customers should provide DrainCom technicians with all the information necessary, such as when and where the leak has been found. Our technicians use the newest and best diagnostic equipment to determine what is causing the leak.
Interior Basement Waterproofing in the Greater Toronto Area
Waterproofing basement walls from the inside is the best waterproofing solution, when: 1) there is excessive moisture in the soil, especially under the basement concrete slab, 2) the basement is very deep, or 3) the neighbour’s property is located very close to yours. To perform foundation waterproofing from the inside, the basement wall has to be exposed, and the floor excavated along the foundation walls, for the new weeping tile pipe to be installed. We use the Delta MS drainage membrane to direct water to a new filtered plastic weeping tile pipe. The advantage of internal waterproofing is that it is not only protecting the basement from water coming through the foundation wall, but also from collecting groundwater from under the concrete slab.
With an internal solution, any landscaping or flower beds will be not be disturbed and the external appearance of your home will remain untouched.
You will no longer have to worry about water seeping through the floor or wall cracks. If you presently have an unfinished basement and you are planning to renovate, waterproofing your basement will ensure that there will be no future water damage since water will collect under the concrete foundation and be directed into your local drainage system. Your basement will be protected, and your investment will be safe. Many homeowners experience occasional leakage in an unfinished basement. Internal basement waterproofing is still a worthwhile investment to protect the integrity of your home’s foundation, preventing any further cracking or damage.
For homes with lowered basements, or areas with high water tables, internal basement waterproofing systems will ensure your home will remain dry and free of mould and mildew.
