WATERPROOFING

A wet basement is caused by excess water pressure (caused by heavy rain or melting snow) that is pushed through cracks in your home’s foundation. This pressure can cause major structural damage to the foundation of your home and will also contribute to other moisture-related problems, such as mold and decay. Whether you use your basement for additional living space, storage, or don’t use it at all, if you have a chronic wet basement, leakage or some degree of flooding, you need to address the problem because it will not go away on its own.

Crack Injections - Residential Waterproofing

This is the area where the wall and floor meet inside your basement. As the soil around your home becomes saturated from groundwater and surface water from rain or snowmelt, it puts pressure against your foundation walls. Hydrostatic pressure can lead to bowing walls and water seepage through the crack joint.

Floor cracks  are rarely cause for concern. As the floor is added to provide a solid base and does not provide structural support for the home, the main concern from floor cracks would be is water infiltration is present when the water table rises. Some remedial action is available to reduce further cracking.

A leaking basement in your commercial property may not only damage your foundation but interfere with the operation of your business.

EXTERIOR

The exterio waterproofing method involves excavating and exposing the foundation wall. Next, clean and inspect the exterior wall for any cracks. Once excavated, the walls are sealed with waterproofing membrane and new drainage  are placed at the side of the footing. Last but not least, we check the connection of the weeping tile to the drain or sump to make sure it is working correctly. With 24/7 emergency service, we can reach you anywhere and at anytime.

POPULAR QUESTIONS

  • How exterior waterproofing is done?

    Exterior basement waterproofing in Toronto is considered to be the most expensive, but permanent solution to flood prevention.

    The process involves digging into the ground around the house which can expose external foundation walls and identify any existing structural damage. Any foundation cracks are then sealed.

    Now it’s time to waterproof. A weeping tile is installed around the exterior walls to provide adequate drainage system and divert the running water away from the house. Walls are covered with rubber Bituthene primer and a rubber Bituthene membrane. Waterproofing companies in Toronto like City Wide Group are actually installing additional layer of outside protection – dimpled sheet of drainage membrane (Delta MS).

    Part of the exterior waterproofing solutions is to fix all other leaking sources, such as poorly insulated basement windows and building of a proper window wells.

    The next important step external waterproofing is the material used for backfill and proper soil grading so it points opposite direction from your house. The quality of backfill plays important role in waterproofing. That is why TRICON ONTARIO INC.  is not only doing a great job, but also offer a lifetime fully-transferable warranty.

  • Why does my basement leak?

    Foundations that leak cause all kinds of damage to your basement walls – whether you live in an older home, or one that’s newer. If your basement is leaking then there is no time like the present to have it repaired. And if it’s not leaking, there still is no better time than now to add that extra layer of protection.

    When a basement is excavated, the soils that will be back-filled around the new foundation will be much looser soil than the surrounding, undisturbed ground. The problem with this is that loose earth will collect water much faster than undisturbed virgin soils. After the foundation walls are poured and the ground is backfilled then that soil that surrounds the new foundation will collect water and hold that moisture up against the new foundation walls. This water accumulates and eventually will enter into the foundation walls as they age and deteriorate

  • Why is it important to stop leaks?

    Moisture can cause all kinds of damage to concrete, timber, bricks, and block structures, which in the end can cost you thousands of dollars in structural repairs.

    Maintaining a dry basement is more important than you think, as mould spores can travel throughout your home and cause all kinds of health issues. Although a little leak may seem harmless, without the protection that proper waterproofing provides that leak could be detrimental to the health of you and your family.

  • Why waterproof the basement from the inside?

    Most floods are caused by exterior structural damage so why would you need to waterproof your basement from the inside?

    The cost of basement waterproofing can be as little as a few hundred dollars or can be several thousand. Interior waterproofing is also much less invasive. Homeowners in flood-prone areas should take preventative measures to protect their home, but often choose to take minimum measures against leaks.
    When there are major obstacles that prevent exterior waterproofing. For example, houses are too close to each other which won’t allow for excavating.
    Deficiencies in existing internal waterproofing or plumbing.
    The basement’s humidity level is too high.
