HOW CAN WE ASSIST YOU?
Has your basement floor been crumbling, or heaving? Is it in bad shape overall? Canada Waterproofers Scarborough is here to help with all your concrete floor installation needs!
Have you ever considered converting that unusable space in your basement into a living area? A concrete floor can be the beginning of a new home renovation project. It adds insulation to help keep your basement warmer and secures your foundation walls by supporting the bottom of the existing footings. The best part is that it can actually increase the value of your home.
WHAT WE RECOMMEND:
- During the concrete floor installation, it’s an ideal time to install rough-ins for a future bathroom, basement kitchen, or even a second ensuite in your home
- Whenever installing new concrete floors, we highly recommend replacing all sewer lines in order to take advantage of the old floor being removed
- Take advantage of the work being done as part of the project to install a full waterproofing package by adding a sump pump, all to ensure your new basement is protected from leaks and floods
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN INSTALLING A NEW CONCRETE FLOOR
One of the major benefits of installing a new concrete floor in your basement is that it might be possible to gain a few extra inches in ceiling height. That all depends on the depth of the existing footing level in your home. Keep in mind that it is very important to not excavate lower than the existing footing level because it can cause severe damage to your foundations and possibly cause a catastrophic collapse of your home.

Mixing concrete isn’t as straightforward as it may seem. Many calculations and formulas are utilized to ensure any structure is made to withstand the necessary weight for use.
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.
These two examples illustrate just how important it is to understand what type of project is being worked on in order to ensure proper workmanship so it lasts for years to come. Canada Waterproofers Scarborough has the experience required so any work on your home is done with a high degree of accuracy and precision.
