Even with the best exterior waterproofing system in place, the interior of your basement requires protection from water damage. Our solutions in interior waterproofing don't just focus on adding a layer of coating to the walls and floors but also on managing the water that makes its way into the basement. To do so, we install French drains and sump pumps, which efficiently redirect water away from your building. Our interior waterproofing solutions will permanently eliminate the issue of dampness, mould and any other form of water damage in your home. We can install interior waterproofing in new construction and during remodels. Call us today, and let us keep your building dry.

Sewage water flowing into your basement is one of the worst things you can face in your home. This is more likely to happen when you don't have a backwater valve installed or if the installed valve is faulty or damaged. The work of the backwater valve is to ensure sewage flows in one direction - away from your building. When you contact us, the first thing we will do is perform an assessment of your building's layout. This enables us to identify the best location for the valve. We can install a backwater valve in both new constructions and remodels. We have the experience, skills and equipment needed to do a great job.

Failing to remove groundwater can cause increased pressure, leading to water damage in your basement and compromised structural integrity. The best way to prevent the accumulation of water around your foundation is by installing weeping tiles. The installation process of weeping tiles starts with digging a trench around the perimeter of the basement. The weeping tiles are then installed to collect and redirect water to the drainage system or sump pump. This effectively combats moisture problems in the basement. In addition to keeping the basement dry, weeping tile installation will protect your foundation from problems related to moisture and water buildup.

Water buildup in the window well can cause dampness and leak problems in the basement. For windows at or below ground level, we recommend installing window wells to shed the water away from the building. At Direct Waterproofing, we only use solutions that are built using sturdy materials. All the installation work is done by an experienced and certified team to guarantee perfect results. Our window wells can also offer protection against soil pressure. Soil pressure is what causes cracks and leaks. We have completed numerous window well installations in Waterloo.

Pools of water around your building can cause significant damage to your basement, foundation and yard. The installation of French drains can ensure you never have pools of water around your building, irrespective of how heavy a downpour is. This is because these drains will improve water diversion away from your property. French drains are pipes that have perforations. They are buried around the perimeter of a building to eliminate excess groundwater. The excess water will seep into the French drains, which will, in turn, direct it to the drainage system and away from your building. We are happy to help with French drains’ installation, maintenance and repairs in and around Waterloo.

When dealing with water retention in the basement, a sump pump installation will be the most effective solution you can go with. The sump pump channels water out of the basement and away from the building. The installation process starts with digging a pit at the lowest point of the basement. The pit is where the excess water collects. A sump pump is then installed to suck out the water from the pit and into the drainage system. We have been installing, maintaining and repairing sump pumps for years. We will assess your basement and install the right sump pump so that you never again deal with extreme water retention in the basement.

If there is a power outage, your sump pump will be rendered useless, irrespective of how much water is in the basement. That is why you need a battery backup pump for when the power goes out. The battery backup pump will kick in whenever there is a power outage or when the sump pump fails. This guarantees that you can enjoy peace of mind irrespective of how bad a storm is. We only install high-quality battery backup pumps from reputable manufacturers. All the work is done by a certified team of installers to ensure no mistakes are made. Contact us today, and let's discuss the available options for your building.

Sewage can back up into your home when there is a blockage or high pressure on the other end. This can cause flooding in the basement and compromise your entire plumbing system.

Direct Waterproofing specializes in the installation and maintenance of backflow preventers. With the solutions we offer, you can be certain that backflows will never be a problem in your home.
