Basement Waterproofing & Foundation Waterproofing In Vancouver

Is water leaking into your basement?

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.

Basement Waterproofing

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.

Foundation Waterproofing

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

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.

Internal Waterproofing

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.
