Home improvement should not be limited to what you can see. Taking steps to protect your building structure can ensure better air quality and prevent costly repairs and loss of property. Investing in a basement waterproofing system in Newmarket is a perfect example of an “unseen” home improvement that makes your house more secure by preventing flooding damage. It is a worthwhile investment.

A mouldy and leaky basement can damage furniture and personal belongings. Mould and mildew growth can expose homeowners to serious health and safety risks due to bacteria. Unfortunately, many Ontario basements can be prone to flooding after heavy rains or the melting of winter snow. There are several causes of a flooded basement, including:
  • Condensation - This natural condition occurs when there is a great temperature difference between the cold basement walls and the warm indoor air.
  • Plumbing Leaks - Burst or leaking pipes, broken washing machine hose, leaking water tank
  • Leaky Basement Windows - Window wells filled with water can spill into a house’s bottom floor
  • Leaky Basement Foundation - Poor yard drainage, a high water table level, defective drainage system, and sewer backups. Water infiltration can be destructive. When ignored, water leaks can destroy the floors, walls, basement or crawl space and foundation. Basement waterproofing experts in Newmarket can help you seal those leaky areas.
  • Backlowing French Drain - Similar to gutters, French drains installed around the perimeter of your house would be an inexpensive method to divert runoff water from seeping into the foundation of your home.

    However, French drains are also prone to clogging and malfunction. Instead of diverting water, a defective drain can send the flow back up and into your home.

    The recommended courses of action for this problem is to call a plumber to fix your drainage system and waterproof your basement or crawl space to block off the water. Emergency plumbers at Plumbing Authority are also skilled to repair cracks on your floors and walls to strictly prevent moisture from seeping into your basement.
