There are several reasons homeowners ask us to interior waterproof as opposed to excavating from the outside, and sealing the outer walls. Exterior waterproofing is more expensive. It’s a major excavation, with significant upheaval around the exterior of the house. Inclement weather can impact how long the job takes.
Or, your house might be located too closely to neighbouring homes, or the soil might be too wet – in both cases making excavation impossible.
Or, you might opt for what many of our clients go for – they get the exterior waterproofing project completed, but still opt for elements of interior waterproofing as a back-up.
Through years of waterproofing basements Canada Waterproofers Uxbridge has found the best methods and applications that work for each type of foundation, and we apply this experience to all of our waterproofing projects – including sealing cracks, holes and other problem areas, installing a protective drainage membrane to the walls, inspecting or replacing your home’s weeping tile system, installing brother-and-sister technologies like sumps pumps and backwater valves, both of which push water away from your home, while also protecting your basement against a back-up a water and sewage from the city sewer system in the event of a major storm.
