Leak Doctor™ Know-How

 

Water is an 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 ground water 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 is 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 a 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 waterflow 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 foundations.

 

 

 

 

 

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 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.
