Sometimes all it takes is a small amount of water leaking into the basement of your home to cause a serious problem. Are you seeing any of these issues? These could be indicators of a leaky basement:

  • Damp basement walls
  • Drywall damaged due to moisture or mold
  • Stains or white powder on your basement walls (efflorescence)
  • Peeling or cracks in paints or wall coatings
  • Leaky basement windows
  • Cracked or stained basement floors
  • Water insects

If you are experiencing these problems it is a sign you might have to do some basement leak repair so it doesn’t cause further damage to your foundation and cost you a lot more in repair bills down the line.


As a foundation waterproofing company, Abarent Construction can investigate foundation issues and recommend the best method and technologies in basement leak repair. There is a comprehensive process we need to conduct to ensure a long-term solution. The main focus of basement waterproofing should be preventing leaks through rerouting water in the first place! We will take the time to supply you with product specifications and building code information that you will understand so you may make an informed decision on the best solution for your basement waterproofing needs.

First, we inspect the perimeter of your home to check for any drainage issues which might require a weeping tile (French drain) or a sump. After we have conducted an assessment of the drainage, we will look for evidence of water leakage and cracks.


Abarent’s team can also help you with more than a leaky basement. We can also do foundation waterproofing for residential and commercial clients in Vancouver. As a foundation waterproofing company, we have experience with exterior waterproofing and interior waterproofing techniques.


Exterior waterproofing are the methods and approaches used on the outside of your home to prevent water from pooling around your foundation. A waterproofing membrane should be installed around the exterior of your home will create a seal to keep out moisture and prevent leaks. We can also ensure you have a proper drainage system with gutters and downspouts in the appropriate areas to prevent water pooling. Foundation waterproofing may also involve the installation or repair of weeping tile (French drain).

The process of exterior waterproofing can be more expensive, especially if it requires weeping tile repair or installation. The main thing to focus on is keeping the foundation dry so it doesn’t undergo damage and cracks allowing water to seep. Over time, this might be a more reasonable option, especially if you live in an area with a high water table or increased flooding risk.


Interior waterproofing is a second line of defence against water damage.

The downside of using interior waterproofing methods only is that they are only a backup when water is already in your basement. If your budget allows, a combination of exterior and interior waterproofing is the best approach to keep out of your basement.


If you need more information on basement or foundation waterproofing, we will be happy to answer your questions. Basement waterproofing costs can vary depending on the situation we discover and the extent of the repairs which may need to be completed.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done. After this past weekend’s deluge, our basement was left completely dry.

We have had our fair share of unremarkable and even troublesome experiences with other contractors, so you guys were certainly a breath of fresh air. An honest contractor, bang on with the timeline, finished on time, within budget, your “nothing is too much trouble” attitude…and a job well done.

Michael Abbott

Abarent provided a 3-page, itemized list of the specific work to be done at each stage of the project, including descriptions of optional issues (including additional costs) that might arise during the work. The company president did the initial walk-through for their estimate and later went through it, line by line. He pointed out potential problems and things we had to prepare for during the work (extra cracks, concrete dust, effects on neighbors, etc.)… Repairing a foundation is a very traumatic event for any householder because all of your house investment is (literally!) in the air. If you have to do it, call Abarent. They are professional – we cannot recommend them highly enough.

John Baker

It is terrific to see that your company’s motto of “Quality without Compromise” is more than just words… The job was completed ahead of schedule and the workers ensured that when they left, the yard looked just like it did when they arrive. Well, actually it looked better…
