When Should You Waterproof Your Basement in Ottawa?

For best results, we recommend inside basement waterproofing during dry periods such as spring, summer, and early fall. Exterior basement waterproofing is best suited during summer and the warmer months to properly protect your home from water damage and before heavy snow or rainfall.

This allows our team to work on any excavations and allows materials to cure properly.

Interior Waterproofing Ottawa

Inside basement waterproofing is a key step in securing your basement from mould, checking for asbestos, and addressing any issue immediately before finishing or renovating your basement in Ottawa. Our interior waterproofing services include:

  • Membrane Installation: Our membrane installation creates a formidable shield against moisture, protecting your basement from moisture and persevering its integrity.
  • Weeping Tile: Our effective weeping tile systems divert groundwater away from your foundation, maintaining a consistently dry and stable basement environment.
  • Sump Pump:  Our sump pumps will efficiently divert water back to outside sewer lines at times of heavy rainfall and floods, preventing basement flooding and other water-related damages.
  • Backup Sump Pump: During a rare event when the main sump pump fails or is overworked, our battery backup sump pump acts as an extra layer of protection, ensuring your basement stays dry.
