Benifits of Waterproofing Your Home

Without proper prevention measures in place, your property can quickly suffer from water, mold, and structural damage. Investing in basement waterproofing allows you to enjoy the following benefits:

Enhanced structural quality—Leaks can cause your foundation to deteriorate over time, which can result in problems with your flooring and cracks inside your home. Waterproofing helps maintain the structural integrity of your home.

Less exposure to allergens and odours—Moisture in your basement creates musty smells and can cause allergies to flare up. Waterproofing can help you breathe easier while keeping excess moisture out of your home. 

Increased home value—Whether you’re planning to sell your house or rent out your basement, you can command a higher price if your home has undergone waterproofing. 

Peace of mind—Perhaps the most important advantage of exterior basement waterproofing is the peace of mind it gives you. You’ll be confident knowing that even with heavy rain, your home and personal possessions will remain safe and dry.

Damp Proofing vs. Waterproofing

You may have heard about damp proofing. But how does it compare to waterproofing?

Although damp proofing is designed to keep moisture out, it’s only a surface-level solution and won’t prevent standing water from entering your home. 

Waterproofing, on the other hand, provides greater protection. This approach includes sealing any cracks in your foundation to completely keep out water and moisture. 

When consulting with waterproofing contractors, it’s important to take note of the products they plan to use to perform the job. Some contractors will assure you that they are providing waterproofing solutions, when in fact they are using materials intended for damp proofing. 

At ClearView Services, we believe in being fully transparent with our customers. We will discuss our waterproofing plan in detail and provide you with everything you need to know before any work begins. This allows you to make an informed decision and ensures your peace of mind throughout the process.

        • Excavation work around your home (the exact depth and width of the trench will depend on your home’s elevation)
        • Hydraulic shoring (this is used to keep trenches intact and protect the safety of the workers)
        • Foundation walls are inspected for cracks and then cleaned and repaired
        • Rubber membrane layers are applied to your foundation
