Water is Your Basement’s Worst Enemy



Poor drainage and an unprotected foundation can allow moisture to seep into your basement, damaging flooring and walls, lead to poor air quality resulting in the growth of mould and mildew and respiratory health problems.

Ensuring your home is graded so that water runs away from your house can help protect your belongings.

The problem  of exterior waterproofing foundation wall can cause moisture to seep into your basement. To seal the foundation, a waterproofing company will need to excavate around the perimeter of the home in order to access the problem area.

First the foundation problems will be restored, and then a flexible waterproof membrane will be applied to seal the wall. Next, a drainage layer is placed over top of waterproof membrane. This will prevent water from entering your home’s foundation.
