Is Your Oakville Home Experiencing a Basement Leak?

New or old homes, any and all are exposed to the risk of foundation leaks which can cause sever damage to your basement walls.

Majority of basement leaks happen because of vertical-step or horizontal cracks that usually appear on the outside of your basement walls. Moisture can also be a problem. It can enter into the walls that surround the underground wall where your your gas and electric lines enter. Our recommendation in order to prevent any water from getting into your walls would be to have all openings sealed correctly and backfilled all around the outside.

Of course leaks are not exclusive to that example. Basement leaks can be caused due to many other problems. Loose or cracked porous bricks that sit on top of your basement wall can also accumulate water thus build up moisture and lead to cracks. Another instance is when basement windows are poorly installed. Ensuring that installation is sealed and secure will ensure the basement waterproofing will be effective with no weak points. Other examples include; open mortar joints, poorly done caulking jobs where the line for an air conditioning unit is and around the door entrances or any other openings in the house where water leakage is possible. Canada waterproofers Oakville wants to ensure that there are no weak points and that no leak will penetrate your home.

Basement excavation can also pose a problem. When soils are filled around the new foundation after a basement is excavated, the soil itself is much looser when compared to undisturbed ground surrounding the home. Undisturbed soil doesn’t collect as much moisture as loose earth. Loose earth actually collects water a lot faster than virgin soils. Moisture also collects faster within loose freshly excavated soils that surround the homes foundation. This moisture will eventually make its way into the foundations walls as they deteriorate over time and the pressure that is caused from the moisture makes it more difficult for the foundation to withstand on its own.

We pride ourselves on ensuring the work we do is done right the first time to ensure your home is leak free for at least 25 years!
