How To Prevent Basement Leaks

Basement leaks often occur when the wall meets the concrete floor. In such cases, the contractors usually apply a waterproofing layer over the cement. Then, after they build the foundation walls and floor, they run a waterproof liner on the cement’s surface. Finally, they put the basement floor over the liner and onto the concrete surface. Contractors repeat this waterproofing process until the leak problem is solved.

Prevent Basement Leaks With Waterproofing

Basement leaks are inevitable, unless and until there’s a waterproofing liner on the cement’s surface. If the liner is not on the cement’s surface, it can not serve the purpose. So, why is this? Because the waterproofing liner will only serve its purpose if applied

on the cement’s surface. When the concrete surface is dried out, and hard, the liner will not work. However, if they use the liner on wet concrete, it will serve the purpose better.

Various Waterproofing Methods Treat Different Issues

Several things should be kept in mind while applying a basement waterproofing liner to avoid basement leaks. First, the type of waterproofing membrane should be selected according to the climate of the area. The membrane should be selected in such a way so that it serves the purpose in a better manner. Also, the material that is to be used should be selected so that it helps to prevent the dampness in the area. As the climate varies from place to place, the type of material that is used for the waterproofing liner should be different in such a way that it serves the purpose effectively. If the moisture is not properly kept in the area, then the leak problems will occur.

Important Factors To Prevent Basement Leaks

Another important thing that needs to be kept in mind while installing a waterproofing liner is the location of the floor and the wall. The floor should be installed at a place where it serves the purpose of preventing the wetness. If the floor is placed in an area where there is a lot of moisture, then the leakage problems will occur.

Before You Install Basement Waterproofing

Before installing basement waterproofing, it is very important to find out the source of water. For example, if the leak is caused by poor flooring or water leakage from the roof, then the best solution is to get a proper waterproofing solution. If the leak is caused due to moisture in the area, then the best solution is to install a waterproof liner on the area. If the leak is caused due to poor ventilation then it can be solved with the help of a proper drain. Alternatively, if it is caused due to water seepage, then it can be solved with the help of a system that is installed above the floor level.

Aquatech was wonderful right from the first contact to having Richard come out and give us a very complete and detailed quote to the two man crew who were here exactly on time and completed the day hours ahead of time. All the locates were taken care of and within a week of contacting them the job was completed. The workman did a fabulous job and were very respectful of our property. They reviewed the scope of the work before they started and asked if we had any questions. When the work was complete it was difficult to see where they had worked and dug the trench. Everything was tidier than before they started. We are very impressed and in a world where household repair companies can be less than favourable, Aquatech stands head and shoulders above any of them. We would highly recommend this company. We also have a life time transferable warranty too. Bravo. We will definitely be telling all the people we know about our wonderful experience. Thank you.

We had a flood disaster the day after we got the keys for our new home. Aquatech Waterproofing responded to my request for help quickly and came to access the damages the same day. They gave us several options for repairs as well as prevention that were fairly priced and a quick turnaround time. They executed our chosen plan quickly and did a beautiful job. They have been very responsive, answering questions about the products we chose and we recommend them to anyone that needs quality work done in a timely manner. Very compassionate and empathetic for our situation as well.

AquaTech is very professional and reliable. Valentina was very friendly, she scheduled the appointment at a convenient time and Nico came out to look at my problem. He diagnosed it and gave me a reasonable price. We went ahead with the job. The crew that came out to do it was very knowledgeable and professional. I had some questions and Igor explained everything to me with no problem. I highly recommend this company. Thank you AquaTech!

EXCELLENT experience. Andrew was the first one to arrive and was extremely kind and helpful. Igor and Basil joined Andrew a few minutes later and all three of them worked very hard and finished this massive job in one day. These are some of the hardest workers I have ever seen. There were no hassles or surprises and Andrew, Igor and Basil were very skilled and courteous. Also, Nico was VERY flexible with our constant changes of plans and was very accommodating and understanding. An excellent experience all around - could not recommend more highly!

Much thanks & appreciation to Slava & his hardworking crew for their excellent job excavating, installing weeping tiles & pipe, repairing cracks, waterproofing, and backfilling the 7'-deep trench 27' along the full side of our home. Wow!! On site, Slava, the lead foreman, clearly explained step by step their work including repairing foundation cracks and securing our downspout and other connections better then before. All in all, we are greatly satisfied & highly recommend Aquatech to anyone looking into correcting their leaking basements. Slava -- you & your crew brought humor, sincerity & experience -- no rush job here, just highly competent work by deserving technicians & company. Thanks also to Andrew and Terry for their super fast service with the gas line locate, the fast return calls, home inspection & estimate. Priced fairly for super work + 25 years warranty that can be passed on to a new homeowner. You guys were great!! Highly recommend! -- Anne & Frank - Scarborough

Terry was friendly, fair, and transparent on his work and recommendations. Other bidders could have gouged myself on the price but he was honest. He kept costs downs but the quality was still top notch. He treated our family like one of his own without being “fake” to get the job. He’s as genuine and real as they come.

Slava and his crew did a fantastic job of installing piers and raised our sinking front concrete 4 inches. Very courteous, hard working crew! They hand dig as opposed to other companies that wanted to use a backhoe thus, saved our shrubbery and trees. I would highly recommend Aquatech!

Installing Basement Waterproofing Is Crucial

It is very important to install basement waterproofing systems at a proper height, according to the level of the leak. For this reason, it is necessary to install the system from the ceiling, but at a proper distance from the wall so that the drainage can be maintained. It is not advisable to install basement waterproofing systems on the wall itself.
