Interior vs. Exterior Waterproofing

A damp basement is either from water coming into the home from outside or condensation forming on the inside due to temperature fluctuations.
From the outside, water can seep through cracks or the walls, thanks to hydrostatic pressure. External basement waterproofing is paramount to keeping these moisture sources from entering your home.
Sometimes, waterproofing the building materials and surfaces isn’t enough to keep the water out, though. Then, we employ active methods to move the water away from your foundation, depending on your structure. We may use sump pumps or a weeping system, for example.
Condensation forms inside your walls when your basement is humid or significantly warmer than the outside ground temperature. To fix this problem, we apply a waterproof coating to the walls. If we cannot access the walls, we employ internal drainage systems.

These guys saved our life by showing up in time and replaced a leaky pipe easily! After that, we scheduled an appointment for the next day to check everything out, so the leaking problem won't bother us again because of the extremely cold temperatures. We had great communication and we received all the answers that we needed for future prevention of the problem. Well done job! I would say, above and beyond.

My wife and I purchased an older home in East York with the understanding that we were going to need to do a fair bit of work to modernize the infrastructure. Plumbing being a major focus. I contracted MT to: replace cast iron plumbing stacks (there were two in my home), plumb our new kitchen main floor, and also a basement kitchen that we have, as well as some plumbing for two new bathrooms. We also decided to replace the clay sewers in the home which were about 75 years old and also install a backflow valve. Eddy, Pavel and their team of plumbers did a great job.

Benefits to Waterproofing

The most recognized benefit to waterproofing is a dry basement or crawlspace. When there’s no unwelcome water, your furniture and other belongings remain intact. There won’t be mould or mildew growing in your walls or carpet, for example.
Waterproofing also keeps your foundation and walls structurally sound. Extensive water exposure causes building materials to weaken, which means that your home is likely to need expensive repairs.

FAQ

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’re a local company that can cater to all of your internal waterproofing requests with impressive skill and enthusiasm.

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.
