When to Seek Waterproofing?

Signs that You Need Basement Waterproofing Scarborough

Several signs indicate the need for basement waterproofing, and recognizing them can save homeowners from significant damage.


One clear indication is the presence of water seepage or flooding during heavy rainfalls or snowmelt. If this happens you may see water pooling on the floor, damp walls, or even visible mold growth.


Musty odors coming from the basement are another indication that waterproofing is needed. This smell indicates excess moisture and points towards a potential mold/mildew issue that can be harmful to your health.


Cracks in the foundation walls or floors are also among the red flags. Cracked basement walls and floors can serve as entry points for water infiltration. Another indicator - peeling paint or efflorescence (white powdery substance) on the walls suggests moisture problems that need immediate attention.


Addressing these signs promptly by seeking professional basement waterproofing services helps prevent further property damage and maintains a safe living environment.

Scarborough Waterproofing Products

Basement Waterproofing Materials Popular in Scarborough

When it comes to basement waterproofing, there are popular materials commonly used for both interior and exterior applications. For interior waterproofing, one prevalent material is the installation of an interior drainage system.


This system typically includes a sump pump, drain tiles, and a vapor barrier to redirect water away from the foundation. Additionally, interior sealants and coatings can be applied to walls and floors to prevent moisture infiltration. On the other hand, for exterior waterproofing, popular materials include the use of waterproof membranes or coatings on the outside of the basement walls.


These barriers provide a robust shield against water penetration. Exterior weeping tile drainage will also be installed. The choice between these popular waterproofing materials depends on factors such as the severity of water issues and budgetary considerations.


We use popular materials such as Delta-MS below-grade dimpled membranes, Corrugated Drain Pipes with Filters, 6-inch Yellow Jackets, Aquablock 770-06 and other materials.

  • How long does basement underpinning take?
    The duration of a basement underpinning project can vary depending on various factors, including the size of the basement, the complexity of the existing foundation, and the specific underpinning technique used. Typically, basement underpinning projects can take several weeks to a few months to complete. The process involves a series of steps, including excavation, installation of temporary supports, underpinning the foundation, pouring new concrete footings, and allowing sufficient time for the concrete to cure. The timeline may also be influenced by factors such as weather conditions and any unforeseen challenges encountered during the construction process. It's important to consult with a professional contractor or structural engineer who can assess your specific situation and provide a more accurate estimate of the timeframe required for your basement underpinning project. They will consider the scope of work, project complexities, and any potential disruptions to your daily routine during the construction phase.

  • Common Foundation Problems?
    There is a number of foundation problems that may occur for different reasons. If you notice the or other foundation problems, make sure to talk to an expert as soon as possible as foundation problems tend to get worse over time. Here is a couple of foundation problems that we often see: Cracks in the foundation - cracks can occur due to settling, shifting soil, or poor construction. They can range from minor hairline cracks to larger, more serious cracks that affect the structural integrity of the foundation. Uneven or sinking foundation - may be caused by soil movement or inadequate soil compaction during construction and other problems. It can lead to uneven floors, gaps between walls and floors, or doors and windows that stick. Foundation heaving - heaving may be caused by the soil beneath the foundation expanding, which causes the foundation to rise. This can be caused by excessive moisture, frost, or poor drainage around the foundation. Basement leaks - water seepage or leaks in the basement can be a sign of foundation problems. They can occur due to cracks in the foundation, poor waterproofing, or improper drainage around the foundation. Bowing or leaning walls - when the foundation walls start to bow or lean inward, it is often a result of hydrostatic pressure from water-saturated soil pushing against the foundation. This can lead to structural instability and should be addressed promptly. Settling or sinking foundation - if the foundation settles or sinks unevenly, it can cause cracks in the walls, uneven floors, and misaligned doors and windows. This can be caused by soil consolidation, poor soil compaction, or inadequate foundation design. Foundation deterioration - over time, foundations can deteriorate due to age, exposure to moisture, or poor construction materials. This can lead to weakened foundation walls, crumbling concrete, or loss of structural integrity. The list goes on. Remember, these and other foundation issue should never be ignored. If you see any signs of foundation problems, talk to an expert as soon as possible!
