Does your basement smell musty, or do you see water dripping from wet spots on the roof? These signs, however, subtle or blatant, from your house, indicate the need for maintenance and proper repair. Each sign you see in the house are different, and more often than not, it is based on these differences that the cause of damage is figured out. We at DryShield decipher these warnings from your house perfectly, and style a waterproofing solution best suited to cater to your water problems.

External waterproofing stops seepage of water into the house. Hydrostatic pressure is a common cause in this scenario. Ground water due to the built up pressure difference enters into cracks on the basement concrete cracks. This method of waterproofing has to be externally done, to prevent water from penetrating through the foundation.Contact us for DryShield External Waterproofing Solutions is the expert basement waterproofing contractors in Toronto.

Know More About this Technique:

External basement waterproofing has a number of benefits:

  • The moldy smell in your basement can be easily removed, thus reducing all the allergic reactions accompanying it.
  • Waterproofing the foundation prevents the damage from spreading deeper into the house. Unchecked basement repair can cause leaky basements and harmful moisture builds up, on the walls and other surfaces. These conditions further aggravate the damage to the house and your belongings in the affected areas.

The structural strength is also increased with external basement waterproofing. It strengthens the foundations preventing sub-branches of cracks in the concrete and the shifting of the floors in the house.

Our Method:

Our method of work is simple and quick. We get to the root of the problem, which requires excavation of ground around the foundation. We check the damage on weeping tiles, if any, or instate these tiles in areas necessary. Moisture proof urethane, which is rubberized, is our preferred cover over the foundation walls. Moreover, waterproof layers are laid to divert water into the weeping tiles and to prevent this water from clogging. New drains and layers are installed in the area for additional protection. Our design focusses on reducing the hydrostatic pressure build up, thus preventing further water seepage.
