Overview

Exterior Waterproofing In Vaughan .

Exterior basement waterproofing is a process that can protect a building’s foundation from water damage. In Vaughan, it is a well-established method of preventing water from penetrating into the basement of a building. This process requires digging around the foundation of the building to expose the walls, and repairing any cracks or defects that are found. Once the repairs are complete, a waterproof membrane or coating is applied to the outer side of the foundation walls. This shield will keep the basement free from water damage and ensure that it remains a dry and habitable living space. This process is important for building maintenance because it helps preserve the structural integrity of buildings and prevents costly repairs.

Exterior Waterproofing for a Residential Home in Vaughan .


Client Challenge: A homeowner in Vaughan noticed persistent moisture and mildew in their basement, particularly after heavy rainfalls. Concerned about the potential long-term damage to their home’s structure and indoor air quality, they sought a professional solution to address the water intrusion.


Our Solution: We proposed a comprehensive exterior waterproofing system tailored to prevent water from entering the basement, safeguarding the home’s foundation and improving the overall living environment.

Execution Steps:

  1. Detailed Assessment: Our team conducted a detailed assessment of the home’s exterior and the surrounding landscape to identify the key areas where water was penetrating the basement.
  2. Excavation and Preparation: We carefully excavated around the home’s foundation to expose the full extent of the exterior walls where waterproofing was needed. All debris and obstructive materials were removed to prepare for the waterproofing application.
  3. Waterproofing Application: A high-quality, durable waterproof membrane was applied to the exterior foundation walls. This membrane was specially selected for its resistance to the harsh climate and soil conditions in Vaughan.
  1. Drainage Improvement: To enhance water management, we installed a new weeping tile system along with proper grading of the landscape to direct water away from the foundation.
  2. Restoration and Final Inspection: After the waterproofing measures were in place, we restored the excavated areas with careful attention to landscaping details. A final inspection was conducted to ensure everything was functioning as intended.

Challenges and Resolutions: During the excavation, we discovered a previously undetected crack in the foundation wall. We promptly sealed the crack with hydraulic cement before applying the waterproof membrane, ensuring a comprehensive and effective waterproof barrier.

Results: The exterior waterproofing project was completed successfully, resulting in a dry and healthy basement environment, free from moisture and mold. The homeowner was extremely satisfied with the transformation, noting the immediate improvement in air quality and the peace of mind knowing their home was protected from water damage.
