Regions prone to heavy rains or snowmelt have increased odds of basement flooding. A basement waterproofing system for your Caledon home can protect your home from flooding and water damage. Plumbing Authority can apply a sealant to your basement foundation walls, keeping water from seeping through the foundation, preventing it from eroding the basement walls, and avoiding mould and rot issues in your home.
Causes of basement flooding include:
- Cracks in the foundation
- Leaky windows
- Poor lot grading
- Plumbing leaks
- Sewer backup
Spotting a leaky basement requires diligence. Survey your basement and identify traces of leaks along architraves and floor-wall floors joints. Watch for discolouration on walls, efflorescence (a chalky white substance left after water has evaporated), and signs of mould growth.
All these are telltale signs that you need a basement waterproofing system. To understand the exact cause of leaks in your basement and get the tailored waterproofing services you need, call Plumbing Authority. We can provide you with customized waterproofing solutions to keep your property sturdy amid any instances of moisture.
We can help you repair cracks on your basement floors and walls so you can avoid water damage and save on water bills. We also offer septic tank repairs and sump pump installation.
Benefits of waterproofing your basement
- Damage Prevention - Canadian winters’ freeze-and-thaw cycle can cause cracks in your foundation. This can then cause unwanted moisture, wall leaks, and spring flooding. Dampness caused by a leaky basement encourages mould growth, creating health risks for everyone living inside.
Basement waterproofing systems can prevent expensive damage to furniture, treasured belongings, and even the home’s foundation. Get the help of experts to protect your home.
- Peace of Mind - Waterproofing the basement of your Toronto home not only saves you the cost of repairs, it also preserves your peace of mind as well. Basic maintenance like sealing non-structural cracks, mounting or replacing pump systems, and compressing crawl spaces will protect your family and possessions from damage caused by moisture buildup, and allow you to enjoy your basement.
