Basement Waterproofing Etobicoke
WHAT IS WATERPROOFING?
Which areas of my home need to be waterproofed?
While we often think of our home as one big asset that helps protect us from the elements, do not forget that there are certain areas of the building itself that are more integral to its safety than others. The basement, for example, is invaluable to the overall structural integrity of a home, making it an area that is vital to protect. This is probably the most important area of your home, then, that should be waterproofed as quickly and as thoroughly as possible.

Signs of Water in Your Basement
It can be difficult sometimes to discern whether or not there has been water – or is still water – in your basement. Indeed, while it might seem like the answer to this question should be fairly simple to see, it is important to understand that water doesn’t always announce its presence via standing water on the ground. In fact, sometimes the water is fairly well hidden and is only visible when the individual in question is specifically searching for it. In order to help you determine whether or not there is (or has been) water in your basement, there are a few tips to follow.
First of all, do not only look for a wet floor! On the contrary, consider examining the walls of the basement carefully as well. Look for obvious dampness, of course, but also look for discolored areas of the floor or walls. Check for obvious cracks and water streaks, even if they are dried. You don’t need to find water actively seeping into your basement to have water damage. Even just the evidence of water itself can be alarming.
