HOW CAN WE HELP?
Is your basement floor crumbling, heaving, or just in 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 as a living area or just a storage space. Concrete floors have many benefits for your home and can add value to the property.
A new concrete floor can also 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 Mississauga a call, as we can take care of all types of concrete projects.
WANT TO INSTALL A NEW CONCRETE FLOOR?
- 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 a sump pump, so that your new basement will be protected from all types of flooding
WHAT TO CONSIDER
While installing a concrete floor in your basement it may be possible to gain a few inches in ceiling 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.
At Canada Waterproofers Mississauga we understand the importance of safety, and we follow very strict rules and regulations to make sure that your home is safe and secure.
We guarantee you will be more than happy with the results of your new concrete project.

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?
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.
With these two examples you can see how different concretes can perform, and how important it is to use the correct strength and formula for your project, so that concrete finish will last for many years.
