Window wells are one of the main causes of water leaks in to the basement. If your Toronto home has this issue you should contact a waterproofing professional
Window wells are a weak spot in the foundation, and are susceptible to cracking which can cause them to leak.
Older foundations are generally built with cinder blocks and this is fine until they age. As the wall ages then the mortar between the blocks tends to loosen or crack which allows water to enter the basement.
Sump pumps have many benefits when installed correctly, but they can also cause problems if they are not installed correctly, or they fail due to either age or just bad quality, there are many good Sump pump systems that will last the test of time, and also there are many backup and warning systems that can be installed.
A drain that is backing up is a big issue and should be addressed immediately, you could have a root issue or even a broken sewer pipe that could be letting raw sewage enter your basement.
If you are seeing water rise from any drain in the basement then is it time to call in the professionals.
A crack in a concrete slab could mean a few things, but the most common is hydrostatic pressure, which is a build up of water pressure under your slab trying to escape and eventually will push up and crack the slab, but also a crack may be less sinister, and it could just be shrinkage. Watch out for a white powder around the cracks which is the tell tale for hydrostatic pressure.
Weeping tiles are an important part of protecting your home from water entering your basement.
If a weeping tile becomes clogged or broken then water pressure will build up and enter into your basement either through the base of the wall or through cracks in the floor.
This is the most common issue when it comes to concrete foundations. Your concrete foundation is similar to a swimming pool in reverse.
If you have a crack and water hits it then it will leak.
Crack concrete foundations should be addressed ASAP.
This type of leak may be caused by a few things, one is that the weeping tile has failed, and another is that there is a crack in your cinder block foundation and water is entering into the hollow blocks and showing up at the base of the footer.
A professional will be able to find the cause of your leak.
Whether it’s new or old homes, any and all are exposed to the risk of foundation leaks which can cause severe damage to your basement walls.
The majority of basement leaks happen because of vertical-step or horizontal cracks that usually appear on the outside of your basement walls. Moisture can enter through the underground wall where 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 back-filled, all around the outside.
Basement leaks can be caused by many other problems. Loose or cracked porous bricks that sit on top of your basement wall can also accumulate water, building up moisture and leading 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, poor caulking jobs where the line for an air conditioning unit is, and poor installation work around 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, so no water 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. Undisturbed soil doesn’t collect as much moisture as loose earth. This moisture will eventually make its way into the foundation walls as they deteriorate over time. The pressure that is caused from the moisture makes it more difficult for the foundation to withstand on its own.

By ensuring the interior of your home is waterproofed by Canada Waterproofers Oakville it will prevent any water or moisture from entering your finished basement. This will provide you with a dry living space for you and your family.
In order to make sure your finished basement remains dry for many years to come, using the proper vapour barrier and insulation is essential.
If the improper vapour barrier and insulation is used after the interior waterproofing has been installed, it will increase the risk of condensation build- up which can cause health problems for you and your family. This happens due to water being trapped behind the membrane, which builds up condensation quickly. Over a period of time it will deteriorate your home’s basement walls and cause mould.
Spray foam is the solution to this type of problem. The foam itself becomes its own vapour barrier and will stick to the waterproofing membrane to insulate and ensure your home is sealed against any moisture, eliminating the chance of getting mould.
