After identifying, we repair. We offer the full spectrum of waterproofing solutions to help keep your home dry, safe and healthy. 

Building Envelope Repair

First, Leak Doctor™ provides a comprehensive leak investigation. These include a detailed analysis of the leak: assessment of damage to structural and non-structural materials; any potential structural failure; determination of root causes for the leak, whether due to design issues, original installation or subsequent repair; sealant failure; as well as flashing failure or design flaws.

 

Repair or remediation plans will be developed for consideration by the client. Leak Doctor™ specializes in Building Envelope, from foundation to roof. We are your ONE-STOP building solution. 

Maintaining the Integrity of the Building

Prevention of the penetration of water/moisture into and through the facade of a structure is an essential part of maintaining the integrity of the building.

 

Leak Doctor™ provides the expertise and staffing to identify and remedy such problems, including repairing and undoing work that was either poorly designed or inexpertly executed when the structure was built or renovated.

 

Application of the appropriate sealants and coatings to joints and processes which are properly designed and installed can significantly improve the structure’s integrity and reduce future expenditures for repair.

Foundation Waterproofing

Nothing is worse than a wet basement. Dampness, unpleasant odours, unhealthy moulds, ruined flooring, stained drywall, sodden insulation and many other ills threaten your home when your basement leaks water. Plus, once your foundation starts permeating the water, the deterioration of concrete happens quicker.

 

We can help protect your health and the investment in your home by preventing leaks and repairing damage already done.

Ideally, waterproofing should always be done from the exterior to prevent water from entering in the first place. However, we offer both services depending on your home’s needs and what scale of a repair you would like to undertake:

When homeowners experience wet basements for the first time, it is important to determine if the water problems are going to reoccur or if it was a one-time event. Essential to solving this question is determining where the water is coming from.

As specialists in both waterproofing and the complete installation of perimeter drainage systems, Leak Doctor™ provides you with turnkey service to ensure that your home will be protected from any risk of infiltration.

Water is a ubiquitous element in the surroundings of your home.

The land surrounding your home already contains natural moisture. It must also properly drain sudden water flows from rainfalls, snowmelt, runoff from the roof or even the watering your yard. Your home can also be located in a floodplain or near a groundwater table, making it so that your land quickly soaks up water.

 

It is essential to protect your foundation walls according to the specifics of your property to ensure that your home stays dry.

 

Why is it important to waterproof your foundations?

Waterproofing foundation walls are often overlooked by manufacturers in favour of a simple tarring, which is certainly economic but is not resistant to cracks and damage in the long run. Tarring is not enough if there is a constant presence of water and moisture around the foundation. Only waterproofing can counteract these effects.

 

It is life-long protection that you can provide to your home as well as your own health. It is ideal to carry out waterproofing at the time of construction but if your foundation walls have not yet received waterproofing, it is possible to make this improvement at all times, whatever the age of your home.

 

Several processes and products are available to satisfy every type of need. In addition, you will ensure a beautiful future for your property by adding a drainage system adapted to the water flow of your land.

 

The exclusive Leak Doctor™ technique: waterproofing that will protect your house from all risks of infiltration throughout its life

 

Dampproofing or waterproofing?

Only the combination of waterproof and water repellent materials creates a protective seal against moisture while wicking water toward the French drain.

  • With the waterproof Rub-R-Wall membrane, your foundations are completely isolated from the ground. Elastic, it may restrain spalling concrete and even cracks reaching 3.2 millimetres (1/8 inch) in width.

  • When the Geo-Wrap waterproof membrane is placed over the Rub-R-Wall membrane, it protects the Rub-R-Wall against any risk of deterioration and improves the drainage of runoff water along with foundations.
