HOW CAN WE HELP?
With seemingly more inclement weather and heavier rainfall, basements are more susceptible to flooding. Budgets are tight in this day and age. It might be tempting to put off having the waterproofing health of your home assessed to a later date.
All it takes though is one major flood, or even what seems to be a minor water leak, over time, for you to be faced with major, expensive repairs to your home. Repairs might involve having to replace dry wall, or floor boards, wiring, baseboards. Water leaks lead to mould and mildew. Water and mould eats away at timber, brick – you might be facing more serious, structural issues.
Making an investment in a waterproofing system for your home will give you the peace of mind knowing your basement will stay dry. And how do you put a price tag on peace of mind?

Exterior waterproofing is the most comprehensive, foolproof method of protecting your home. It tackles the issue of water leaks right at the source.
When our team comes to your home to install an exterior waterproofing solution, their first step will be to dig down to expose the trouble areas on your foundation wall, clean the wall, grind out any cracks and open them into a “V” shape. We’ll apply hydraulic cement to the cracks (the cement sticks better if the crack is opened into a “V” shape), or, in the case of leaks through cinder blocks in the foundation, apply a cement mix to the entire wall.
Aqua block is next. This a rubberized tar, or foundation. Then we’ll apply yellow jacket, which is a fibreglass mesh, that is squeezed into the aqua block. Then another coat of aqua block is applied (kind of like a sandwich – aqua block is the bread, and yellow jacket is the meat). On top of that our waterproofing contractors will apply six millimetres of poly, that sticks to the aqua block. A rubber membrane is also applied to the wall, so water can drop down into the weeping tile.
We’ll always replace the weeping tile system in any excavation work that we do. Weeping tile is the drainage system installed when your home was built, to re-direct water away from your foundation. Any leak between your home’s footing and the concrete foundation is taken care of by the weeping tile system.
