Waterproofing

Waterproofing of the foundation wall (below the ground level) is a process of applying a water-resistant compound onto the foundation wall. Sounds rather simple, doesn’t it? But what compound to choose? Do all applications fit YOUR specific foundation wall? Will YOUR basement get drier?

There are several important things a homeowner has to know and understand about the waterproofing process of the main foundation wall(s):

One application almost NEVER can accomplish all of the expectations one may have while repairing ones damaged foundation wall. At the same time, certain layers of treatment application can be absolutely unnecessary, while some layers of treatment can be even harmful, as in the example of “Blueskin” – if it is improperly installed it may result in a condensation effect.

There are different types of the foundation walls in Ontario. Normally, there are four types which are: block foundation, brick foundation, poured monolith foundation, and the foundation wall composed of stone, hence there are minimum treatments, and the recommended treatments can be different in achieving the main goal – having your basement dry, eliminating the musty smell, and stabilizing the foundation wall.

Proper treatment (by which we mean the ideal bonding, effective drying, and long-lasting effects) will depend on how long and how badly damaged the foundation is or was.

These are just a few things you want to know in order to get what you need and to not end up being disappointed with the final result.
