A basement gets wet due to the seepage of excessive water pressure through the cracks of your home that’s caused by heavy rain or snowing. This pressure can do a lot of harm to the structure and the foundation of your house. Moreover, it will also contribute to various moisture related problems like mould and decay.
Basement leak or moisture problems can also drop your home’s resale value significantly. People like to put their basement to the best possible use. And a leaky basement can prove to be a hindrance in their plans. However, waterproofing can rev-up the value of your property considerably.
Exterior Waterproofing – This is by far the most effective waterproofing service so as to stop water from seeping into your basement.

Interior Waterproofing – Damp basements can bring unwanted damages, health problems and expenses. While exterior waterproofing is highly recommended so as to get rid of the problem, however, there may be certain situations where exterior access isn’t an option. In that case, interior waterproofing methods can greatly help to prevent from future water damage.

Our team first inspects the older weeping tile systems for any kind of breakage/blockage so as to repair/replace them for the best results. A back-flow valve is also a must for a flood-less basement.
