Concrete foundation faces premature and unprecedented deterioration due to the use of salt to de-ice pavements. This decline in quality is one of the problems homeowners experience around reinforced concrete decks of the property.

But one method that combat this unwanted difficulty is waterproofing concrete with pavement or membrane systems.

Our team of waterproofing experts are not strangers to the problem of this kind, because we use a sophisticated method that helps protect the membrane.

We understand that concrete is inherently weak in tension due to the limited bonding strength and various preexisting microcracks and flaws that form during the hardening of the matrix. This is why you need a seasoned professional to stop the leak and fix the cracks.

✓  Installation of grade and underground level drainage system

✓  Applying waterproofing barrier such as Hydro guard pro series, DMX drain 5M, Aqua bloc

How-to-Guides on Waterproofing for Homeowners

✓ Expose the foundation to the bare concrete, remove all soiled building material/materials.

✓ Obtain 2-3 site inspections from qualified contractors. (The main purpose of this is to educate and inform the customer by way of identifying the cause of the water seepage and gathering proposed solutions with the respective quotes.) 

✓ Identify the entry point of the water intrusion pressure

✓ Ensure that all cracks and/holes in foundation walls and floors are sealed 

✓ Ensure that an adequate sump pump is installed to manage all groundwater that collects around the perimeter of the home as well as under the floor slab.

✓ Ensure that internal weeping tile is placed along the perimeter of the foundation as well as all heaved/cracked sections of the floor slab 

✓ Ensure that a vapor barrier is run along the foundation walls to stop condensation from damaging the frost walls.
