Talk to a Canada Waterproofers Pickering technician about a waterproofing solution that best fits your home. We offer with exterior and interior options.
The exterior solution is the one we recommend the most – since it’s the most complex solution and tackles the water leakage problem at its source. Interior waterproofing is becoming a more popular option for homeowners. It is less costly than the exterior option. Also, in many instances houses are too closely bunched together, meaning our crews can’t excavate, or the ground is too moist for us to dig.
Foundations that leak cause severe damage to your basement walls. It doesn’t matter whether you live in an older home or a newer one. If your basement is leaking now, don’t wait – get it repaired.
Don’t settle for cheap service and low quality materials. Go with the best. Contact Canada Waterproofers Pickering!
We will explain in real time why your basement is leaking, and how to avoid foundation cracks and a wet basement from the water pressure being exerted on the foundation walls of your house.
The most foolproof way of waterproofing your home is an exterior system featuring protective layers on the outer walls, combined with a system of weeping tiles and a sump pump, to re-direct water away from the foundation, to an outer dumping area.
A leaking foundation may seem like a big job to fix, but we can assure you that with the right waterproofing method your basement will stay dry.
To protect your investment, first and foremost. Moisture is an enemy to any home, sparing no part of it. It can cause damage to your bricks, timber, concrete. It will cost you thousands of dollars in repairs – never mind the cost of replacing your possessions. And what about the upheaval in your life that flooding causes? And the emotional impact?
When these damages occur, not only is your home’s health at risk, but so is your personal health, as well as the health of your family. Although it may seem harmless, water damage leads to mould, and mould spores can travel through your home, creating serious air quality issues. That can lead to health issues, like throat irritation, coughing, eye irritation, nasal stuffiness, and skin irritation.
The average cost to finish a basement varies, depending on whether you are doing most of the job yourself or hiring a contractor. Doing it yourself can run you as high as $50,000. Do you intend to put in a bathroom down there, or another kitchen area? A lot of people see their basement now as a rental income project, which also adds value to the home.
Canada Waterproofers Pickering also handles concrete floor installation, or basement underpinning (or basement lowering), that can add ceiling height.
With all of this, why wouldn’t you want to protect your investment against water damage? Get on the offence. Give us a call, for a free, no-obligation assessment of where you stand.
If a basement is finished with drywall, for example, and a leak occurs, not only does all the drywall have to be redone but also the flooring, baseboards, and everything else, so that all the mould can be removed.
Make sure a waterproofing solution is installed prior to refinishing your basement. A water-damaged basement would normally cost an additional $20,000 to $30,000 to repair.
n the end, a lot of this comes down to weighing return on investment.
The cost for interior waterproofing ranges from $65 to $125 per foot. The determining factors are concrete thickness, height of the basement, amount of footage, commercial or residential, and accessibility.
Exterior? Those costs range anywhere between $90 and $600 per foot, depending on factors like accessibility, the depth needed to excavate, and the space between houses, and if it’s a commercial and residential property.
