The first line of defence and arguably the most important protection for your home's exterior waterproofing. Keeping groundwater out of your house should be on the top of your list of priorities when making decisions on how to best protect your investment. We only use premium products that offer the best benefits for every type of foundation.
In some cases, exterior waterproofing is not an option depending on the home landscape or access. Interior waterproofing is a great way to stop unwanted moisture and groundwater from getting into your home. We always recommend this option to customers before renovating a basement to ensure that their investment is well protected.
Sump Pump System Installation
When dealing with excessive groundwater, a sump pump system may be your best bet. It can make a real difference by removing unwanted groundwater that is below your house and relocating it to a safe distance that won’t affect your foundation. The average life of a sump pump is 10 years, and modern sump pumps can now send the user notifications informing them of any issues, such as the secondary pump being activated or complete failure.
Window Well Installation
Window wells are great for keeping damp soil away from basement windows. This metal barrier is simple and effective as it can prevent water from pooling near the windows which eventually leaks through the foundation walls, window frames, or even the window. Some advantages of window wells are they allow for escape in an emergency, and they allow for more natural light, which is useful in basements that have windows below grade.
