No two projects are alike when it comes to basement waterproofing. Ottawa homeowners can turn to Capital Foundation & Waterproofing Ltd. for both interior and exterior waterproofing services.
Internal Internal or interior waterproofing focuses on the walls and ceilings of your basement. Some solutions include using waterproof coatings or concrete sealers on the walls and proper basement drainage. While the latter isn’t a type of waterproofing in itself, it does help keep out stagnate water.
External This is the most effective form of basement waterproofing as it acts as a direct solution to water problems. Exterior waterproofing often involves fixing uneven grading and inadequate drainage problems on the outside of your basement.
Capital Foundation & Waterproofing Ltd. can identify where and why your basement is leaking and provide customized solutions to solve your individual problem. A small water leak can quickly develop into a much larger problem for your basement, making it essential to have a waterproof foundation in Ottawa.
Some of the basement waterproofing services we provide include:
Inspections An inspection allows us to get to the root of your basement or foundation problem. It allows us to quickly identify problem areas to perform the necessary repairs or suggest new installation projects.
Repairs We handle a wide range of common basement waterproofing problems including wall leaks, floor seepage, sump pump backup, overflowing window wells, and grading problems.
Waterproofing for new builds Waterproofing during the initial build of your basement can help prevent water damage, floods, mould growth, and more. If you’re building a new home and want to add a basement, consider hiring our team.
Sump pit installations A sump pump is used to remove water that has accumulated in your basement. A sump pit or sump basin is where the water is collected. It’s important to have a sump pump in your basement if your foundation is below the water table where water has saturated the ground. Putting in a sump pump pit requires breaking ground and invasive construction work in your basement.
