Exterior Waterproofing Toronto

Exterior Waterproofing is the most effective way to get rid of a leaky basement.

The easiest way to fix a leaky basement is to locate the foundation fractures and cover them entirely using an outside waterproofing solution. Water can seep into your foundation walls over time, progressively degrading them and making them weak and vulnerable to water penetration fractures. Waterproofing your home’s foundation walls from the outside will strengthen them and prevent future basement leaks.

In the basement foundation repair process, our exterior waterproofing Toronto experts will employ a combination of commercial-grade waterproofing materials:

  • Hydraulic Cement is crucial for sealing foundation fractures and preserving them from additional water damage.
  • Rubberized Waterproofing Membrane is applied to the entire foundation and serves as a barrier between the foundation walls and any rain or water accumulation. This tar-like substance is put to the wall beside a reinforcing mesh to keep it from deteriorating over time.
  • Exterior Drainage Membrane is laid over the top to help send water down to the foundation’s bottom, avoiding water from accumulating and freezing on the foundation walls.
  • Drainage Pipe System that runs down your foundation’s footing, gathering excess water and draining it away from your basement walls or to a source where it may be properly disposed of. To aid drainage, the perforated pipe is installed in the trench and covered with 3/4 crushed gravel.

Waterproofing your New Home is Critical

Waterproofing your foundation walls, regardless of when your house was built, can help you avoid a calamity in your basement.

The most common type of foundation walls are brick and concrete block.

  • Water tends to collect on the bottom of block foundation walls, and to relieve the pressure, a small hole is drilled to allow the water to escape.
  • Mortar joints are the crevices between brick, stone, or concrete blocks that can deteriorate with time, allowing water to leak through and into your basement. Water can seep through any cracks in the mortar joints, making it difficult to pinpoint where the leak is coming from because it might flow from one side of your foundation joint to the other.

Water can potentially leak into your window sill, causing more problems down the road. You can avoid this by installing or replacing your windows properly. We also provide custom-made window well coverings that will keep dirt out of your window well and prevent water from draining.

If there is any water seeping through, a gravel drainage bed and vertical weeping tile will ensure that it is adequately drained. This will give you the full exterior basement waterproofing Toronto experience that will take care of all your leaks.
