    Interior vs. Exterior Waterproofing

    If your basement is often wet, it can lead to complications, such as persistent strongodours and rampant mould growth. Leave it long enough, and it could also damage floors, walls, pillars, and ceilings.
    The wetness could be due to water leaking into the basement from outside from wall seepage or poorly installed basement windows. It could also be internal from a damaged pipe or floor seepage from hydrostatic pressure. Depending on the cause, we can provide a lasting solution through external or interior waterproofing.

    Exterior waterproofing involves waterproofing and sealing the foundation of your home to cover cracks that can let in moisture. Interior waterproofing usually involves concrete coating or installing a drain along the base of your walls. The drain will catch water seepage and safely deposit it outside your basement.

    Let us perform a free on-site estimate to determine if interior or exterior waterproofing is the best solution for waterproofing your basement.

    Types of Basement Leaks

    There are various causes for a basement leak in Toronto. Popular culprits are wall cracks, hydrostatic pressure, cove joints, and floor cracks.
    • Wall cracks can be caused by the house settling or shrinking, cement drying, and seismic activity. The presence of cracks can create entry points for water in the soil surrounding the basement.
    • Hydrostatic pressure is caused by water underneath your basement floor or wall pushing against the barrier until it breaks into your basement. We install a French drain to control such seepage by draining the water to a sump pump or outlet.
    • Cove joints are where the walls of your basement meet the floor. The point isn’t perfectly sealed, so water can leak into the basement from there. A French drain or other types of interior waterproofing are effective for controlling such basement leaks.
    • Floor cracks can force water from the ground into your basement. Such leaks can be caused by hydrostatic pressure or a burst pipe under the foundation.
    The right approach to fixing a basement leak will depend on the cause. By carefully assessing your basement leak, we can identify the best solution and stop it from reoccurring.

    Oftentimes, the external ground around your home and the soil under the house will naturally erode over the years. This is caused by water saturation from weather conditions or other external sources of water and it will eat away at the home’s foundation causing major structural damage over time. Putting up a waterproofing barrier will ensure this erosion is brought to a halt.

    Basement windows can serve as a much-needed light source in a basement but also as a means by which water can seeps into your basement. Basement windows are the typical entry point for water to get into your basement. Sealing them may not be enough, so an extra step to take is installing a Window Well to make sure that any water that is getting in will have a proper drainage channel to get out.

    internally waterproofing your home not only protects your foundation, but it also makes your basement more comfortable to be in as it prevents excess moisture and humidity caused by groundwater penetrating your foundation.

    We respond to the waterproofing needs of commercial and residential customers. We can help you with everything from weeping tile installation to French drain installation and beyond. We can even assist you with basement crack repair and window well installation work.

    Internal waterproofing service is a pretty simple concept. First and foremost, it entails digging a trench from within your basement. This trench should run directly alongside the problematic space. Once the trench has been dug, drainage system insertion starts.

    The purpose of this system is to guide water accumulation over to ways out of the home. Concrete is then poured in order to close the trench. This provides property owners with the promise of basements that are perfectly dry and comfortable.

    Plumbers rely on internal sealants as a means of stopping additional water escape, preventing potential water damage. These kinds of sealants are not necessarily effective in stopping leaks for good. They can be useful for the sealing of conspicuous cracks that are present on floors, ceilings and walls.

    Note that weeping tiles and French drains are both typical sights in the internal waterproofing world.

    Internal basement waterproofing in Vaughan can be beneficial for many households. It doesn’t negatively influence outdoor surroundings in any manner, and it safeguards basements of all kinds from the hazards of the outdoors, too. It minimizes hydrostatic pressure while being remarkably budget-friendly.

    The difference between internal and external waterproofing is that internal waterproofing seeks to waterproof your basement walls from the inside and includes the installation of a internal drainage system to redirect water away from your homes foundation. This also includes the installation of sump pumps which seek to divert water that has made it into your basement away to prevent water damage and mitigate risk of mold forming.

    External waterproofing on the other hand brings the waterproofing process to the outside of your foundation and is considered to be the best solution in-regards to protecting your basement foundation, but in certain applications is not possible, due to a list of potential factors. Our waterproofing contractors can advise you on the best course of action to stop your basement walls from leaking.

    There are several potential causes of a wet carpet in a basement in Toronto. Some of the most common include:

    1. Leaky pipes: A leak in the plumbing system can cause water to seep into the basement and cause a wet carpet.

    2. Flooding: Heavy rain or snowfall can cause water to seep into the basement through cracks in the foundation or through window wells.

    3. High humidity: High humidity levels in the basement can lead to condensation on surfaces, which can cause a wet carpet.

    4. Clogged or malfunctioning sump pump: A sump pump is used to remove water that has accumulated in the basement. If it is clogged or not working properly, it can cause water to buildup and create a wet carpet.

    5. Improperly installed or maintained drainage: Improperly installed or maintained drainage systems can cause water to collect around the foundation and seep into the basement, creating a wet carpet.

    6. Improperly installed or maintained window wells.

    It is important to identify the cause of the wet carpet and take appropriate action to fix the problem. It’s better to seek professional help in order to find out the source and prevent any further damage.
