As a full service plumbing operation, we have the expertise to fully assess the root causes to your wet basement challenges. While many other organizations will simply waterproof or treat the affected area, we attempt to determine the underlying causes to the standing water causing the basement wall or floor leaks.
Exterior wet basement repair and waterproofing
Do you have a finished basement that you want to protect? Our exterior wet basement repair and waterproofing solutions are exactly what you need. We fully excavate the exterior of the affected area, clean and/or replace the weeping tile section, pour new stone, repair and treat the foundation wall and install channeled dimple board to allow for unencumbered water flow down to the drainage system.
Interior wet basement repair and waterproofing
If an exterior repair is not feasible, then you may be better suited for an interior wet basement repair solution. These repairs are accomplished by breaking out a 30cm to 50cm trench in the basement floor from the wall down to the drainage tiles of the affected area. We then repair and/or replace the drainage, pour new stone and install channeled dimple board to allow for water flow and drying. The broken floor area is then re-poured to complete the repair.
Both interior and exterior repairs are fully water tested to ensure that the problem has been solved.
Poured foundation wall crack injection repairs.
A poured foundation wall crack injection involves filling the crack in a wall with an epoxy or polyurethane to bond and fill in the void.
The first step in the process is to affix injection ports over both ends of the crack (short plastic tubes with a flat base that straddles the crack). Next, an epoxy adhesive is applied over the surface of the crack and the injection port base. This seals the outside surface of the crack and secures the injection ports in place. Once this cures (approximately 45min.) an epoxy or urethane is injected into the bottom port of the crack until it is seen coming out of the top port of the crack. The crack is now filled and the ports are then capped. After a cure period of 24hrs, the ports can then be cut off.
NOTE: although this method will stop water from leaking through the treated crack, it does not address the underlying standing water issues.
