Dedicated Basement Waterproofing Services in Newmarket

We are well aware of the inconvenience of juggling professionals from different companies to get the job done. That is why we offer comprehensive waterproofing solutions in Newmarket. Our professional services are designed to keep your home dry, permanently, and all without breaking the bank. Here are some of the most popular waterproofing services we offer.

Exterior waterproofing has a significant impact on the structural integrity of your home. It is your first line of defence against water intrusion into the foundation and basement. We offer tailored solutions that are meant to protect your home from moisture damage and water intrusion. To achieve this, we use a combination of high-quality waterproofing materials and proven techniques. The work starts by digging the soil around your building and then installing waterproofing membranes such as liquid-applied coating or rubberized asphalt. This creates a solid barrier that keeps water from getting into your home. French drains and weeping tiles may be installed to eliminate excess underground water.

At times, water damage can be due to backflow from the sewer system or someone forgetting to turn off the water faucet. To prevent significant damage, interior waterproofing is needed. Interior waterproofing involves adding layers of coating to the floors and walls to prevent water seepage. We will also install a sump pump to eliminate water that is already in the basement. To further prevent water damage, we may recommend the installation of a back valve in the sewer line to prevent water backflow. The solutions we offer vary depending on the issue we are solving. Give us a call to discuss our solutions further.

Sewage flowing back into your home is undoubtedly one of the most disturbing things that can ever happen. This issue is common when a backwater valve is missing or damaged. The backwater valve is a mechanical device that forces water to flow in one direction. It safeguards against flooding caused by water backing up in the sewer. Our team starts by assessing the layout of your building to determine the perfect spot for the backwater valve installation. You can call us to assess your sewer line, check the condition of your backwater valve and help with new installations or replacements. Our in-house team has the skills and equipment needed to complete any backwater valve installation quickly and professionally.

Groundwater should be directed efficiently away from your building. Failure to do so will lead to water damage in the basement and eventually compromise the integrity of your structure. The best solution for eliminating water around your building is the installation of weeping tiles. Our team will dig trenches around the perimeter of your building and then install weeping tiles. Their role is to collect water and direct it away from your foundation. We will connect the weeping tiles either to the sump pump or the drainage system to ensure the efficient removal of excess water. Proper weeping tile installation will protect your basement and foundation from moisture buildup, water damage and structural problems.

When you have windows located at or below ground level, you will notice water building up in them. This water can find its way into the foundation and basement if it is not eliminated in time. Installing window wells can help shed water and safely direct it away from your building. The window wells have a slight slope that allows water to flow to a designated drainage area. Eliminating the water before it soaks up in the surrounding soil further removes the issue of increased soil pressure, which is a leading cause of leaks and cracks in a building. We have handled numerous projects involving window well installation in Newmarket. We can help with the installation, maintenance and replacement of your window wells.

Water pooling around your home can lead to damage not just in the foundation and basement but also in the yard. If you have noticed a pooling problem, the installation of a French drain can guarantee you never have water pooling around your home, irrespective of how harsh the weather is. The French drain is a unique pipe that has perforations. It is installed around the perimeter of your building to collect excess water and direct it to the drainage system. The system works by intercepting water so that it never gets to the basement. It also alleviates the issue of hydrostatic pressure, thus reducing the chances of structural damage by water. Our team at Direct Waterproofing will help with French drain installations, maintenance and replacement in Newmarket.

Water retention issues in the basement can lead to myriad problems. The best solution for combating this issue is installing a sump pump. This is a system that channels water out of the basement and into the drainage system. When you contact us for the installation of a sump pump, our team will first dig up a sump pit at the lowest point of your basement. The pit is where the excess water will be collected. Next, we will install the sump pump, which works autonomously to eliminate the water when it gets to a certain level. With this solution, your basement will remain dry at all times. At Direct Waterproofing, we are experts in the installation, maintenance and repair of sump pumps.

The sump pump requires electricity to work. This means a power outage can render it useless. A battery backup pump provides supplementary power during an outage or when the primary sump pump is not working. Thanks to being a battery-powered system, the battery backup pump will pump out the water in the sump pit even when there is an electrical disruption in your area. You can thus rest assured that irrespective of how harsh the weather outside is, your basement will not get flooded even when your primary sump pump fails. Give us a call for a battery backup pump installation in Newmarket.

Blockage or high pressure in the sewer line can cause sewage to backflow. This can be messy and damaging to your building. The good news is that installing backflow preventers will guarantee that sewage never backflows into your home for any reason. Backflow preventers are mechanical devices that are designed to force water to flow in one direction. The device is usually installed to complement exterior and interior waterproofing. Contact us today for a free consultation. We are always happy to answer any questions you have.

Our experienced and skilled experts will ensure you have the best waterproofing solution in place to permanently keep your home dry, irrespective of the season. Call us for a free consultation.

As essential as water is, when it is not handled properly, it can be the source of your nightmare, especially when it gets in the basement or foundation.
