Credible and Reliable Waterproofing Service Provider in Innisfil

Your basement is the area that is at the most risk of water damage, given that it is located below grade and surrounded by soil. Waterproofing reduces overall moisture in your home, which is important as moisture damages fabrics, wooden and paper products, and metal objects through oxidation, causes mould and mildew growth, and makes homes feel warmer in the summer months. Basement waterproofing also reduces the risk of flooding and helps prevent structural damage.

At Direct Waterproofing, we offer a wide range of interior and exterior waterproofing services in Innisfil. Our experienced and well-trained technicians have the relevant certification and understand what it takes to keep a basement dry. Once you call us, we will investigate the possible cause of the leak and then come up with a customized solution. We use the latest waterproofing techniques and only the highest-quality waterproofing materials. Our approach to waterproofing reduces the risk of the problem recurring.

Comprehensive Basement Waterproofing Services in Innisfil

At Direct Waterproofing we offer a full range of exterior and interior waterproofing services, priced competitively, and professionally installed by our highly qualified experts.

Interior waterproofing involves leak repairs, draining of water that may be caught in the walls, and installing pumps and weeping tiles to protect the basement from the inside. It helps improve indoor air quality, prevent respiratory problems associated with mould, and preserve wooden, metallic, and paper belongings. Interior waterproofing works together with exterior waterproofing for the comprehensive protection of your basement from water damage. Our interior waterproofing service involves the addition of an extra waterproofing layer on the walls, installation of better drainage systems to divert water, drilling holes in the wall to drain away trapped water, repairing gaps and cracks, and installing weeping tiles. We have been doing interior waterproofing for many years, and our team has the necessary training and experience for the job. We use the highest quality waterproofing materials.

The nature of emergencies is that they are unpredictable. You can never know when the sewage will back up into the pipes, a pipe will start leaking, rainfall will be too heavy that it breaches the basement, or an appliance will go faulty and overflow. You should deal with water damage in the basement immediately because the longer you wait, the more expensive the solution will be. So, where do you start when you get a water damage emergency when you are least prepared? At Direct Waterproofing, our team is available 24/7 to make any sort of repair and do either interior or exterior waterproofing.

Backwater valves are an important component of every home as they prevent unwanted sewer water from getting back into your home. Common causes of sewage backup are tree roots, clogged pipes and flooding. You need a high-quality backwater valve since sewer problems can cause untold damage to your floor, furniture, and walls, as well as health problems. Some homeowner insurance policies also require that you install a backwater valve. At Direct Waterproofing, our team has experience installing and replacing different types of backwater valves. We will handle the entire process from permit acquisition to clean up after the job.

If your home's foundation is compromised, the entire structure is at risk. Foundations can get cracks and leaks from poor foundation construction, poor drainage, large trees, and even nearby traffic. However, all is not lost if you have cracks and leaks in your foundation. We do foundation repair, which involves installing support under your home, raising the foundation back to the right position, and securing it there. Foundation repair requires a team that has geotechnical expertise. Our team has the relevant experience, training, tools, and equipment for the job. Call us the moment you notice cracks and leaks – we will do a thorough inspection and then give you a customized solution.

Any property can do with some extra space. One of the most efficient ways of doing this is turning the basement into a habitable space that you can then use for your work or recreation. Most basements have low ceilings – basement lowering allows you to increase the height of the ceiling to make the space more usable. At Direct Waterproofing, we use different techniques to raise the basement ceiling so you no longer have to bend your knees or lower your head when entering the basement. In the process, we will identify structural issues like bad footings and unstable walls and fix them. We will also do basement waterproofing.

Weeping tiles help capture and divert water away from your foundation through the small weep holes. To install weeping tiles, we excavate down the base of the foundation wall until we reach the footing. We then install the piping and cover the space. We install a drain that runs the perimeter of the home to carry water away to a storm sewer. We sometimes connect the weeping tiles to a sump pump. Note that you can always go for weeping tile repair, but if there is damage, overhaul is the more cost-effective option. Given that the foundation will be at risk during the excavation, this work should be left to a professional. Our weeping tile installers take the necessary caution when excavating. They also install waterproofing material to ensure you never have water damage problems again.

If you start seeing water marks on your foundation wall below the window or water starts pooling in the well whenever it rains, this could be a problem with your window well. Solutions include cleaning out debris and installing new window well drainage. If you do not have a window wall installed, you need one to protect your foundation and prevent basement water damage issues. The team at Direct Waterproofing can do it for you. The window well installation process involves excavation until we reach the weeping tile level, testing the weeping tile to ensure it is working as expected, applying waterproofing material, and installing a membrane for hydrostatic pressure relief. Next, we will put in pipes from the window sills to the weeping tiles to drain water, attach the window well, and then add backfill and gravel.

French drains are effective water management solutions that work together with the natural downhill flow of water. The pipe is laid on a trench, which is then covered with absorbent gravel and landscaping fabric. The pipe is perforated for water to enter. When water pools, it sinks in through the gravel into the pipe and is drained away from your home through gravity. Note that if your home lies low, a sump pump is required. French drains also siphon excess water from the earth – this water can lead to soil erosion if not checked. At Direct Waterproofing, our team has vast experience installing and maintaining French drains.

Given the relatively heavy rainfall experienced in Innisfil, ON, you need a sump pump if you have a basement. A sump pump will keep water away from your property. Sump pumps are basically pumps that suck water from the pit or basin and deposit it away from your home. At Direct Waterproofing, our team has experience installing and servicing submersible and pedestal sump pumps, be they water-powered or battery-powered. We position the sump pump at the lowest possible level so all water can flow towards it. The water is discharged to the designated area, be it a creek, pond, neighbourhood drain, or dry well. Our team understands the local government regulations with regard to where the water should be directed.

A sump pump will not serve its intended purpose if it does not work around the clock, even when there is no electricity. This would spell disaster for your belongings and even for the structural integrity of your home. A battery backup pump provides backup power to your sump pump. Although battery backup pumps are optional components, we highly recommend them. The capital expenditure may be substantial, but the results of flooding are even more devastating. Our team will help you buy the best system for your particular needs. The kit typically consists of a battery, a battery-powered pump, a charger, and extra piping. This kit should only be installed and tested by an expert to ensure it works as expected. At Direct Waterproofing, our team has the experience, certification, and tools necessary for the job. You risk voiding the kit's warranty if you do the installation yourself.

Under normal circumstances, water flows with high pressure into the direction of your outlets, such as your taps and shower. However, if there is a sudden drop in pressure, such as due to a break in the main water line, wastewater can flow back into the main water supply, a phenomenon called backflow. This could be shower water, water from a hosepipe submerged in a garden pond, or wastewater in your dishwasher. The solution is the installation of a backflow prevention valve, which allows water to flow in one direction only. At Direct Waterproofing, we install single-check and double-check valves and other backflow prevention solutions. These valves are mechanical devices and can fail from time to time. Our team is experienced in testing, maintaining, and replacing them as necessary.

Clogging can happen in your main line or your sewer pipes from time to time. Common causes of clogging at home are tree roots, soap build-up, and hair. In commercial buildings, common causes of clogging are grease and non-flushable items like female hygiene products and paper towels. Low-flow toilets are particularly susceptible to clogging - a good volume of water going through the pipes ensures readily flushable items do not harden and stick inside the pipes. You should unclog your drains the moment you notice a problem, such as inefficient drainage, foul odours, and leaks due to corrosion. We use a plumber's snake, also called a drain snake, as the primary solution against clogging. This is a flexible auger that comes in handy when the clog cannot be loosened with a traditional plunger. It shreds the obstruction, allowing for the resumption of normal water flow. If this fails, we do hydrojetting or use commercial drain cleaners.

Many homeowners 'forget' about their sewer drains. However, the sewer drain, which transports waste water safely from your home, is a very important part of the drainage system. If it clogs, it can make the house unliveable due to a foul smell, pose a health risk to your family, cause structural damage, and attract pests. Some causes of clogging, such as grease and debris, can be avoided, but some, like tree roots and damage due to corrosion, are a lot harder to predict and prevent. So, what do you do when you notice clogging? At Direct Waterproofing, we understand the urgency with which sewer clogging should be dealt with. We will do an extensive diagnosis using our CCTV cameras to determine the cause of the problem and will then fix it quickly using such methods as drain snaking. Excavation may be necessary, so the task should be left to a professional.

You should hire a professional to do waterproofing to keep mould and mildew away from your family, pets, and belongings. Mould thrives in wet, dark places. If someone in your family is suffering from unexplained sickness such as fatigue, morning joint pains, nausea, and headaches, the culprit is most likely mould.


If your home floods as a result of poor drainage, you may get problems with your home insurance provider. Your belongings, including fabrics and metal, wooden, and paper belongings, are also at risk when your basement is damp. You should hire a professional to test your drainage system, such as testing your sump pumps, because flooding and water damage can cause structural integrity issues. Examples of these are foundation cracks and uneven settling.


If your basement is damp, it will always stink, no matter how many times you clean it. A damp basement also makes the heater go on overdrive to maintain warm temperatures.
