Why is a concrete floor a good idea?
Is your basement floor crumbling, heaving, or just in a bad shape, and in the need of some TLC?
A concrete floor is a great way of converting unusable space into something that you could use for a living area or just a storage space. Concrete floors have many benefits for your home and can add value.
A new concrete floor can add insulation that can keep your basement warmer, and can also help to secure your foundation walls by supporting the bottom of the existing footings. Feel free to give Canada Waterproofers a call, as we can take care of all types of concrete projects.
Canada Waterproofers advises
- While installing a concrete floor it is a good time to install rough-ins for a future bathroom or even a basement kitchen.
- We always recommend replacing all of the sewer lines within the home when replacing concrete floors, as it is a good time to take advantage of the old floor being removed.
- Also while installing a concrete floor it is a good time to install interior waterproofing and sump pump, so that your new basement will be protected from all types of flooding.
Things to consider when installing concrete floors
While installing a concrete floor in your basement it may be possible to gain a few inches in height, but that all depends on the depth of the existing footing level of your house.
It is very important that you do not excavate lower than the existing footing level as that can cause severe damage to your foundations, or even a catastrophic collapse.
Here at Canada Waterproofers we understand the importance of safety, and we follow very strict rules and regulations to make sure that your home is safe and secure.

Did you know that there are many different types of concrete strengths and formulas that must be used for different types of projects and applications?
For example an average concrete floor in your basement will be 25 mpa which equals approximately 3600 psi, which is more than enough strength for your floor within the house, as its only used for foot traffic. Now lets say you want to put a driveway at the front of your house, then this would require a 35 mpa, which is approximately 5000 psi which seems very strong, but this is whats recommended for a high traffic area that will include cars or trucks driving onto it, with these two examples you can see how different concretes can be, and how important it is to use the correct concrete for your project so that your concrete finish will last you for many years.
Canada Waterproofers always use the correct strength and formula for your project so that your project maintains its beauty and strength for years.
