Waterproofing foundation walls from the outside is a good solution to protect the house foundation 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, and we make sure to advise and perform the best technique for fixing the walls.
The advantage of basement waterproofing done from the outside is that it does protect the walls from contact with water or moisture. When performing exterior waterproofing we get excess to the foundation drain and we do replace it. It is 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 of the best solution to fix it.
Basement waterproofing is a serious task that begins with a proper diagnostic.
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 inside is the best waterproofing solution when: there is excessive moisture in the soil especially under basement concrete slab, or when the basement is very deep, or when the neighbour's property is located very nearby. To perform foundation waterproofing from the inside, the basement wall has to be exposed, and the floor excavated along the foundation walls for new weeping tile pipe to be installed. We use Delta MS drainage membrane to direct water to 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 the ground water from under the concrete slab.
With an internal solution any landscaping or flowerbeds will 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 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.
Have the experts at DrainCom inspect your basement, and advise a basement waterproofing solution that is best for you. We offer a free camera inspection of drain systems and weeping tile pipes as part of our service. Our goal is to provide dependable and professional service to homeowners and business people. We will strive to explain each recommended service and will never recommend unnecessary repairs.
