  • Why Might You Need Basement Waterproofing Services?

    Whether your basement is finished or unfinished, you might want to consider basement waterproofing to keep the foundation intact and prevent moisture from seeping into the basement. The purpose of waterproofing is to keep moisture from the basement and protect your home’s foundation. Foundations and basements are vulnerable to leaks, dampness, and water damage. Moisture could find its way into your basement through rainwater that pools against your home or from groundwater in the underlying soil. If leaks are not addressed, they could ruin your belongings or even cause structural damage to your home. If you notice signs of water damage in your home, you should contact a professional waterproofing company to have the problem addressed.

Basement Waterproofing Services Available In Hamilton

  • The Most Trusted Exterior Basement Waterproofing Experts!

    Unlike interior waterproofing that involves working from inside the building, exterior waterproofing consists of digging out the dirt around basement walls and placing a moisture barrier to waterproof the basement from the outside. Waterproofing the basement from the outside helps to stop the water before it penetrates the basement. The aim of exterior waterproofing is to prevent water from ever entering your basement. This waterproofing method is effective for basements with concrete or masonry block walls. Compared to interior waterproofing, exterior waterproofing is more labour-intensive and costly. However, it is a more permanent solution to basement leaks. It creates a waterproofing system that directs the water away from your foundation walls. Our experts will expose the foundation and repair the leaky basement from outside by applying the necessary waterproofing materials.

  • The Most Trusted Interior Waterproofing Experts!

    Interior basement waterproofing involves sealing the basement from the inside. Our experts will add extra layers of protection to your walls using waterproofing materials. Interior waterproofing ensures that any water that leaks into your basement is rerouted away from your home. It involves installing drainage systems consisting of pipes and drains in the foundation to collect the excess groundwater. The excess water is directed into a sump pump that pumps the water out of the basement. When the water reaches a certain level in the sump pit, the sump pump starts to pump it automatically. Interior waterproofing may also involve installing vapour barriers made of foil sheets or plastic along the basement walls to seal out moisture. Waterproofing also involves sealing any leaks and cracks that could allow water into your basement.

  • Basement Waterproofing Emergency Services

    Waterproofing emergencies can occur in many ways, and if not addressed, they could cause extensive damage to your home. At Direct Waterproofing, we take quick action whenever you have a waterproofing emergency. To ensure that we can serve you whenever you need us the most, we provide a 24/7 emergency line. We take great pride in providing emergency waterproofing services in Hamilton at any time and any place. You can’t predict that you will have a waterproofing emergency. A pipe might burst when you least expect it. Flood damage could occur, and when it happens, you want immediate assistance. We understand what it means to have a wet basement and the risks it poses. Our emergency basement waterproofing services seek to dry your basement and keep it that way.

  • The Most Trusted Experts For All Your Backwater Valve System Needs!

    We install a backwater valve or backflow preventer below your basement floor to prevent stormwater or sewerage from backing up in plumbing fixtures or drains. Whenever the backwater valve senses a reverse flow, it closes the gate, stopping it from backing up. This valve serves as the last line of defence in preventing water from entering your home. Every home needs a backwater valve. Because every home drainage system is different, we will discuss how to install a backwater valve that is most suited for your home. You can count on Direct Waterproofing whether you need to install a new backwater valve system or replace the existing one. Our team will help you with the necessary permits, installing the new backwater valve, and home drain line testing.

  • The Most Trusted Foundation Repair Experts!

    We will restore your floors and foundation walls to their sturdy state through our foundation repair services. We will repair the foundation cracks, holes, and penetrations using hydraulic cement to bridge or patch the concrete and allow a smooth surface for a seamless installation of a waterproofing membrane. We have a team of experts who understand all the geotechnical issues related to retaining walls, slopes, foundation construction, and other structural elements. Our expert and highly trained professionals will help you handle foundation problems of any type. By choosing our foundation repair services, you will be partnering with a licensed contractor. You can have peace of mind knowing that nothing could go wrong.

  • The Most Trusted Basement Lowering Experts!

    In many homes, the basement is just a skeletal structure on which to build. It is often not tall enough for you to walk about. If you need more ceiling space or want to expand the basement, basement lowering is an ideal option. You could lower the floor of your basement using two methods: benching and underpinning. Both involve making structural changes to the footings and foundation walls. Basement lowering allows you to have more space in your basement and creates space for basement waterproofing. To maintain the square footage of your basement, we use underpinning. However, if underpinning is not possible, we recommend bench footings because they are much cheaper. Humidity ventilation products and water damage prevention are part of our basement-lowering project.

  • The Most Trusted Weeping Tile Installation Experts!

    Weeping tile helps reduce the amount of water that is present in the soil near your foundation. The difference between a quality weeping tile system and a cheap one is evident in whether you have a dry basement or one that occasionally floods. A quality weeping tile system helps to resist clogging; it contains a big drain outlet to the sump enabling it to drain water from the walls. A quality weeping tile system will not cause structural damage to your foundation. At Direct Waterproofing, our waterproofing system meets all the outlined characteristics. Our quality weeping tile system will keep your basement dry at all times. We provide complete weeping tile installation to help drain away water instead of leaving it to soak your foundation and flood the basement.

  • The Most Trusted Window Well Installation Experts!

    You probably have window wells if your home has a basement with windows at or right below the ground level. Improper window well installation could lead to leaks in your basement. The build-up of water in your window well often leads to dampness issues. Window wells work the same way as a roof shingle by shedding water through the window seals once it fills up to prevent water damage. At Direct Waterproofing, we provide window well installation services for both new window wells and replacements. If your window wells are clogged and not working the way they should, you can count on our unclogging and replacement of drain systems services.

  • The Most Trusted French Drains Experts!

    One of the best ways to keep your basement dry is to prevent water from developing the pressure it takes to enter your basement. You can install a French drain, also called a drain tile, outside your foundation. This could keep your basement dry and eliminate the need for maintenance and replacement. Nothing feels worse than having a rainwater pool in your yard or against the foundation. If this happens, you will have leaks in the basement. Pools of water could also compromise the structural integrity of your foundation. A French drain system contains a perforated pipe that collects water and redirects it from the foundation, often to absorbent gravel.

  • The Most Trusted Sump Pump Installation Experts!

    The role of a sump pump is to regulate groundwater and prevent it from flooding your home. It’s common for basements to flood. You can mitigate this flooding through sump pump installation to control groundwater and prevent it from entering your building. The majority of homes in Canada are affected by wetness below the ground, and installing a sump pump is one of the most sensible steps you can take to protect your home from moisture. Water build-up is the leading cause of cracks and flooding; a sump pump will help prevent it. We take pride in providing installation, repair, and maintenance services.

  • The Most Trusted Battery Backup Pump Experts!

    Just like any other system, your sump pump may fail. It helps to have a battery backup pump, which provides backup power to your sump pump and ensures that it never fails. With a backup pump, your basement will always stay dry even when there is a power outage. The cost of a backup pump depends on the type of pump you intend to acquire, its size, and the complexity of installation. Installing a backup pump is complicated and definitely not a DIY project. You need an expert to help you install the backup pump. You can count on our highly trained and experienced experts at Direct Waterproofing to help you choose the ideal system and install it.

  • The Most Trusted Backflow Preventers Experts!

    The ideal situation in your home is to have clean water flow in while dirty water exits. However, the flow of water might change at times, making dirty water flow back towards the clean. You should invest in backflow preventers, which act as a line of defence against dirty water. With a backflow, you might even have the sewage come back up your pipes or into your basement. When you install a backflow preventer, the water will only flow in one direction. The system will enable you to prevent potable and non-potable water from mixing. Our experts at Direct Waterproofing will help you install, repair, or replace your backflow preventers.

  • The Most Trusted Drain Snaking And Cleaning Experts!

    Accumulation of dirt in your drains could lead to clogging, which could pose a major challenge, mainly in your sewer pipes or main lines. The plumbing in your home will not function properly when the drains are clogged. Our experts will use a drain snake, also referred to as a drain auger, to unclog the drains. Some drain lines could reach deep into the pipes and remove whatever item is blocking them. Some clogs might call for more than a drain snake. In this case, we employ advanced commercial drain cleaning methods to unclog the pipes. The typical methods include hydro jetting and video inspection.

  • The Most Trusted Sewer Drain Cleaning Experts!

    There isn’t a single sewer that doesn’t need occasional cleaning to ensure that it is functioning properly. The sewer drain plays a crucial role in carrying the wastewater from your home and directing it to the underground mains. The sewer drain is a critical component for plumbing because your house can’t function properly without it. If you find standing water in your sinks or toilet, you might have a clogged sewer drain. Our expert plumbers will identify the problem and restore your sewer to function within a short time. We will keep the sewer in perfect condition by using different cleaning methods.
