Local Basement Waterproofing Bolton
‘Last updated: December 6, 2016‘ Our basement waterproofing Bolton is world-class and provided by local experts with more than a quarter century of experience in the local community. Basement waterproofing is an important service to consider as it can be the difference between having a home flooded with water or wastewater, or not. Water makes it way into your household a few different ways and none of them is a good thing for the integrity and value of your home and property. Your home’s foundation can become compromised and leak which leads to flooding. The mold will cause sickness and the property value of your home will go down significantly.
Weak Foundation or Cracks in The Walls
One way water makes its way into your home is due to the hydrostatic pressure which builds up in the moisture of the soil which surrounds your home. It places pressure on the foundation of the house and eventually causes cracks and leaks which lead to bigger problems. Many basements are below ground level and will have this issue to deal with at some point in time if you do not take advantage of our basement waterproofing Bolton. Whether it is interior or exterior waterproofing that you decide on they can both help you prevent a catastrophic problem such as basement flooding which is costly to repair and difficult to recover from financially and emotionally.
Plugged Weeping Tiles
It is important to ensure you have a backwater valve installed to prevent water from entering you home through drains in your kitchen, bathroom, or basement. The PVC pipe that is responsible for draining excess water outside can become plugged or clogged and end up moving water towards the home rather than away from it. It happens by adding pressure to the foundation which eventually leads to cracks and leaking. You can be confident that our plumbing and waterproofing expert will do a thorough inspection to ensure your weeping tiles are functioning properly and that your home will be kept safe and dry all year around. Give us a call 24 hours a day for prompt service.
Leaky Windows and Blocked Drainage Tiles in Window Wells
Another aspect of your household to watch for issues is your window wells, basement openings, and doorways. Any leaks that allow water or moisture through will cause serious damage to your home’s basement, floors, and ceilings. This rainwater or melting snow is relentless and the mold caused by this moisture is also another issue that will have a negative effect on the residents of your household. Allow our local plumbing team to inspect your plumbing system and seal up your windows, doorways, and basement openings so there are no leaks. This service along with our basement waterproofing Bolton are great ways to prevent water damage, mold damage, and flooding.
Mold is something that will grow wherever there is moisture and there are forms of it which are harmless and others which will cause illness. Several types of mold are harmless and are often called penicillium, Cladosporium, aspergillus, or alterniaria. Another type of mold that will aggravate existing health issue or cause sickness is called Stachybotrys chartarum. You risk having this type of harmful mold grow in your basement should there ever be any moisture collecting from leaks. If there is a basement flood this mold remediation is a major cause for concern as it is both damaging to your property, belongings, and the health of the people in the residence.
Bolton Basement Waterproofing. The best way to prevent mold from entering your basement is to prevent moisture from getting in is with basement waterproofing Bolton. Here is how we prevent moisture from entering your basement.
1. Every exterior basement waterproofing job starts with first excavating down to the footing of the basement. The depth will obviously range but we typically excavate out 2-2.5 feet from the wall.
2. We dig out the old weeping tile and replace it with new 4″ weeping tile with filter cloth.
3. Next step is to clean the foundation walls searching for cracks, voids, and any other defects, chisel them out and fill with hydraulic cement which expands to completely fill the void.
4. From the grading down to the footing, we apply a rubbery membrane which is the most critical component in preventing water from breaching your foundation walls.
5. On top of that layer, we apply a dimpled drainage board which will be up against the soil. The dimples create little air gaps so that any water that gets through, drains directly down into the weeping tile.
6. Now that the waterproofing membrane is installed, we install a layer of 3/4″ gravel on top of the weeping tile and then do a water test to ensure the drainage is working properly.
7. We then backfill the excavated hole we made with the same soil we took out, compact it with a tamper to the original level, and clean up the area so it looks like we were never there!
