There are many reasons why you might experience damp in your basement, or leaks through to the inside of your home. At Direct Waterproofing we can solve the problem no matter what the cause, and offer a full range of basement waterproofing
and water control solutions in Ontario.
Leaks and damp problems can sometimes be caused by a build up of water in your window well. If you have windows at or below ground level, then they should come with a window well installed.
The function of the well is to capture and redirect water via drainage, but if the drain becomes clogged, or the window well is damaged or non-existent, then the water can stay contained in the well, and can eventually leak through walls, window frames, or even the window itself. If this happens then you will have a very wet basement, very quickly!
