Basement flooding is always a homeowner’s worst nightmare. The dark, damp reality of water leaking in from the outside can happen to anyone, but that doesn’t mean it has to be your reality. Let us introduce you to basement waterproofing in Southern Ontario.
Basement waterproofing is the most effective and efficient way to channel rainwater from outside and prevent leaks in the basement walls and flooring. Ever since foundation waterproofing was invented, it has been a must for all homeowners who want to prevent floods in their basements.
Basement waterproofing is best when it’s done at the outset, because it guarantees that the benefits will last longer. Additionally, it’s easier to waterproof a basement during construction because the tiny gaps are easier to reach before they get closed off.
To do basement waterproofing, there are two options: exterior and interior. Exterior waterproofing is typically applied to the outside walls of your basement, and can be done with a bonding substance or a membrane. Interior waterproofing is more complex and is applied on the walls and floor to direct water beneath the floor into weeping tile.
