Is your basement experiencing any floor crumbling, heaving, or is it just in really bad shape? Is it time for an upgrade? Canada Waterproofers Burlington can help!
Upgrading and adding a new concrete floor has been what many Burlington homeowners are doing in order to convert unusable space into something they can enjoy for themselves or with family. Concrete floors can add insulation and help keep your basement warmer, at the same time increasing the value of your home.
During the installation process of a concrete floor, it is also a great time to install rough-ins for a newly renovated bathroom, or a basement kitchen, that can be used for a potential basement ensuite.
When replacing concrete we recommend replacing all sewer lines within the home in order to take advantage of the fact you are having the old floor removed
It is also a good time to install interior waterproofing and a sump pump in order to prevent flooding that can hit your Burlington neighbourhood
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN INSTALLING A NEW CONCRETE FLOOR
During the installation of your concrete floor in your basement it’s possible to add a few inches of ceiling height. This all depends on the existing depth of the footing level in your home.
It is essential to not excavate lower than that existing footing level because that can cause severe damage to your foundations and lead to catastrophic collapse of the structure.
We strongly believe in the importance of safety. We adhere strictly to the rules and regulations set out in the industry in order to deliver the best service to our customers – safely and efficiently.

SERVICES WE OFFER
We take care of all types of concrete projects regardless of size.
There are many different types of concrete used for different purposes, based on the strength of the concrete. Formulas are used for different types of projects in order to ensure accuracy and the integrity of the finished product. It’s not as simple as just mixing together water and cement.
Consider the average concrete floor in the basement of your home, for example. It is usually 25 MPA (megapascal – how one measures the strength capacity of concrete), which is approximately 3600 PSI (pounds per square inch) meaning that the concrete floor is strong enough to handle foot traffic in your home.
Now let’s compare the average household driveway. This would require 35 MPA, which is approximately 5000 PSI, recommended to handle heavier traffic, including cars or trucks driving on and off of it. As illustrated in the example above it is clear how important it is to understand the work before it has begun and have a plan in place to ensure all work is completed safely to ensure your complete satisfaction.
