Leaky Wet Basement Diagnosis

Excess water, often from flooding, heavy rain, or melted snow that gets through the openings or cracks in your home’s foundation is almost always the main cause of wet basements. Keep in mind that water molecules are perfectly capable of moving upwards through the building materials rather than just ending up as puddles on the floor. Since there are so many possible sources of water leakage, it is always advisable to have the water penetrating pattern be analyzed by professionals to help in identifying the source of the leak as well as the best approach for fixing it.

The Two Main Methods to Waterproof Leaking Basements

When examining water issues in the home, Exterior Waterproofing is usually the best place to start, which implies that Interior Waterproofing solutions are used in conjunction with the exterior basement waterproofing solutions. Water leakage is a serious issues and keeping water away from the exterior walls guarantees that it won’t accumulate around the foundation before finding its way into your home.

Exterior Waterproofing

Once excavation is done and the foundation all exposed, our technicians will clean and check for any deterioration and cracks, and will then seal and cover them using a waterproofing membrane, either Blue Skin or Aqua Block. We then install a new drainage system (dimple board and weeping tiles) and test for proper drainage. While this approach usually disturbs the area around the exterior of your home during repair, it is usually the ideal solution for identifying cracks, foundation deterioration, and any other source of exterior water penetration.

Interior Waterproofing

If your building or home is prone to water seepage problems, interior systems can be part of the waterproofing solution. This approach to waterproofing is also recommended for homeowners that don’t have access to their exterior foundation wall.

Interior drainage systems work together with the exterior waterproofing systems to ensure that water levels never rise above the floor of the basement. Sump wells are used for collecting water that’s pumped out and away from the home thus keeping the basement dry. A battery backup system is also installed for providing coverage in case of power outages.

The interior systems are typically installed along the perimeter of the interior walls of the foundation of your home. Interior drainage systems are ideal for homes with frequent basement water issues or surrounded by high water tables.

Etobicoke Basement Waterproofing FAQs

Why Should I Care About Waterproofing My Basement?

A wet basement might appear to be a minor problem, but the reality is that it can lead to much greater problems. A basement that generates a lot of moisture or a leaking basement, may compromise the structural integrity of your home’s foundation or attract toxic black mold.

A leaky basement also runs the risk of soaking any belongings stored there, thus increasing the risk of black mold. Waterproofing your basement can help stabilize the property value of your home and give you peace of mind. To find out more about this, visit our basement waterproofing page.

What Can Contribute to My Basement Waterproofing and/or Mold Problem?

Wet basements commonly occur in homes situated in low-level areas at the bottoms of hills or slopes, but the everyday settling or shifting of your home pay also be responsible for the leakage. Other possible causes include poorly designed drainage systems and poorly-mixed foundation concrete. New swimming pools or home additions (whether in your neighbor’s yard or yours) can also lead to problems.

What Kind of Basement Waterproofing Can I Do on My Own?

Keeping water away from your home’s foundation is the best way to keep it out of your basement, and there are several ways that you can do this. Ensure that the ground surrounding your home slopes away from it and is free from plants or shrubbery that may prevent sunlight from drying out the soil. Install downspouts and gutters and keep them clean of debris and ensure that they drain well away from the foundation by either extending gutters away from your home or piping it underground. You should also keep the window wells covered so that they do not collect water.

What Will It Cost to Solve My Basement Waterproofing or Black Mold Problem?

The price will ultimately depend on the solution. Standard system installations such as exterior gravity systems and French Drains, are typically priced by the foot. Installations of dehumidifiers, backup pumps, and other features can also affect the total cost of the job.

Why Would I Require a Battery Backup for My Drainage System?

Sump pumps are powered by electricity and sometimes require battery backups. Trust us: A rainstorm strong enough to cut your electrical power is definitely one that you require a backup sump pump for. A marine battery powers the pump and is an addition to the primary pump. It will also be quite handy in case of failure of the primary pump since the battery backup pump will be serving as the main pump until the primary pump is serviced.
