    What is Exterior Basement Waterproofing?

    Exterior basement waterproofing Toronto homes consists of completely insulating the basement to protect against the deterioration of the foundation and prevent the formation of any leaks. If interior basement waterproofing works to protect against water that has already made its way in, exterior basement waterproofing works to make sure it never makes it inside to begin with.

    Simply put, soil is excavated from around the perimeter of a building, a moisture barrier is installed around the foundation, a drainage system is placed, and the excavated area is filled back in. Exterior basement waterproofing the most proactive and preventative method of waterproofing, as it protects your foundation from any water contact.

    There are many benefits of exterior basement waterproofing, the most important of which is that it solves the problem of wet & leaky basements that cause flooding in the home. It is an extensive and long-term solution that undoubtedly strengthens the structural integrity of the foundation and entire structure.

    When to choose Exterior Waterproofing

    An integrated waterproofing system is necessary whenever there is a risk of water infiltration. Exterior waterproofing is a more advanced and in-depth approach than interior waterproofing and does not require much, if any, maintenance. It is ideal to complete exterior basement waterproofing during the construction process of a home; however, it can be done on any basement.

    Below are additional reasons why you might want to choose exterior basement waterproofing:

    Address Damage that has Already Occurred

    If you are noticing signs of potential water infiltration, such standing water or cracked foundation walls, it is imperative to act quickly. It is necessary to waterproof the exterior of the basement to prevent chronic leakage and to mitigate the effects of hydrostatic pressure. If the problem is left unresolved, severe foundation damage can occur (and the repair bill will likely be significant).

    Prevent Basement Flooding

    If rainwater collects around your basement with nowhere to go, it is likely to cause damage to your foundation, greatly increasing the risk of flooding. Exterior waterproofing includes the installation of an underground drainage system that directs water away from the structure, so that the foundation is fully protected.

    Preserve Structural Integrity

    Exterior basement waterproofing prevents the deterioration of your home’s foundation. A strong foundation supports the rest of the building. With a fully waterproofed basement, the value of your home is even increased.

    Control Humidity Levels

    You may have noticed that your basement tends to get extra humid during summer months, for example. Without exterior waterproofing, excess moisture in the soil makes its way into your basement, often in the form of humidity. Overly humid environments are at risk of mold and mildew growth, which can pose a serious health risk to occupants.
