Let’s face it – leaky basement floods are the worst nightmare of every homeowner. The damp and dark reality of a wet basement that is flooded from the outside water leaking in, does not have to be your reality. Whether you had your basement flooded once upon a time – or you want to prevent that from happening and are just taking precautions, let waterproofing contractors like us introduce you to basement waterproofing in Southern Ontario. When you search basement waterproofing near me, RCC Waterproofing can help prevent basement leaks using tried and true waterproofing solutions.
Exterior waterproofing (or sometimes known as external waterproofing) repairs your leaky basement from the outside of your home by exposing the foundation walls and applying the necessary waterproofing material to create a foundation waterproofing system that will redirect and disperse water away from your foundation walls and away from your home. This is one of the best waterproofing solutions used to fix basement leaks and the most common way waterproofing contractors do a basement foundation repair.
Interior waterproofing (or sometimes known as internal waterproofing) repairs your basement leaks from the inside of your home and is the best solution for a damp or wet basement. When your basement becomes damp and moist, it is best to have an interior waterproofing done in your basement to prevent the growth of mold and mildew, which will create harmful smells and bacteria that affect your health. This is also one of the waterproofing solutions that will help take care of hydrostatic pressure that builds up and causes a wet basement.
A sump pump is a water pump that is used to remove water that has been collected in a water-collecting sump basin (sump pit), found in the basement of your home. The sump pit also has a cover to prevent debris from going in and damaging the mechanism. Sump pumps often work together with an interior waterproofing system, and waterproofing companies will recommend having both inside your basement to have a full waterproofing system. Our sump pumps can be installed with backup battery that will make sure your sump pump is always running, even when the power in your house has been disrupted.
If you are looking for a more livable space in your home, your basement is the first and most perfect place you should look at. But what if your basement is unfinished or needs to be lowered to provide a comfortable space for your family? This is where waterproofing contractors can come in offering the service basement lowering or underpinning as it is most commonly known, which is important for expanding your living space in your basement. This waterproofing service will give you higher ceilings and more living space for you and your family in your basement. As well, underpinning is a great way to increase the value of your property.
Foundation cracks are almost certain to result in a wet basement when left unattended. When basement leaks do happen, an epoxy crack injection can be one of the waterproofing solutions that waterproofing companies can use provided the conditions are right. This type of basement foundation repair uses a two part epoxy resin to seal your foundation wall from water leaks and further water damage. The epoxy is injected into the foundation cracks using special ports placed inside the crack. Then the crack is filled and the epoxy solution bonds the pieces of concrete foundation back together.
It is important to have an exterior waterproofing done on your home and there is no better time to have it done than when the foundation walls are under construction. Waterproofing newer homes is a service that we offer to contractors and new construction companies and RCC will utilize the exterior waterproofing process on your job site to fully waterproof the foundation walls. Let RCC worry about the leaky basement foundation repair and rely on trusted waterproofing contractors like us to make sure the job is done right and with our lifetime warranty.
Crawlspace Encapsulation is a waterproofing service that we offer to customers who have a crawlspace inside their homes. It is possible to have a leaky basement if your crawlspace is not properly waterproofed and we offer waterproofing solutions that solve this very specific issue. While it is more common for older homes to have a crawl space, RCC has plenty of experience doing this type of project and we are a waterproofing contractor that will do a proper crawl space encapsulation and seal your home any water related issues that could happen.
A structural crack is where the foundation wall feels uneven or the width of the crack is about ¼” or wider. Some structural foundation cracks will require engineer specifications in order fo waterproofing companies to do a basement foundation repair. The obvious thing to look for is major cracks on the foundation wall. A horizontal crack means that there is a big problem. Though all cracks on the basement wall are generally bad, but horizontal cracks are serious. Horizontal cracks occur with the soil [mainly clay] constantly expanding and contracting putting the basement wall under a lot of pressure. Some walls especially block foundation walls tend to bow.Learn More
Water lines that have been damaged, hot water tanks that have broken, water overflows, and other types of basement flooding can cause significant damage that will only get worse if not addressed quickly. Our flood restoration experts will use sophisticated moisture metres to assess the water damage and dry wet areas with commercial-grade blowers and dehumidifiers to prevent further damage.
Mould can grow as quickly as three days after a basement flood has caused water damage to your home, putting your family’s health at risk. RCC Flood Restoration provides all mould cleanup and removal services that will get rid of the mould, mildew and other bacteria. We can help you detect, locate, test, identify, remove, and treat mould growth in your home or place of business, preventing further damage to the affected areas.
When it comes to sewage damage, timing is everything. RCC Flood Restoration understands how serious sewage water damage can be, and we can clean up sewage water damage as well as disinfect and sterilise the affected areas quickly and effectively. This is critical for preventing the spread of harmful bacteria that can lead to serious health problems and diseases like Hepatitis A, Tetanus, and Giardia.
