It’s been said that the only thing worse than having foundation problems is your house catching fire. Having a solid foundation is essential; there are so many sayings about having a strong foundation that it’s practically a proverb. If you are seeing cracks in your foundation, or noticing excessive moisture on your basement’s walls or floors, these issues should be addressed as quickly as possible to prevent further damage.
Moisture and leaks in cellars and basements not only make these spaces overly humid, unpleasant-smelling, and prone to mould, but can also compromise the structural integrity of your home by creating unequal soil moisture levels underneath the foundation. We can help. Contractors Masonry Ltd. offers waterproofing to Aurora, Ontario, and throughout the surrounding areas.
Waterproofing for Aurora, Ontario, and Surrounding Areas
To stop the leaks and prevent water intrusion to your basement, crawlspace, or cellar, we employ time-tested techniques, as well as modern materials such as commercial-grade tars and reinforced mortar cements. These coatings remain pliable throughout every season, allowing your home’s sub-surface areas to stay dry year after year.
Waterproofing, when performed correctly, can be a highly involved process. All too often, many companies are not willing to do it in a way that is designed to last. We believe superior materials and techniques lead to superior results — and of course, happy customers.
If you are noticing cracks, leaks, pooling water, or excessive moisture, we invite you to call Contractors Masonry Ltd. We will apply our vast experience in waterproofing, Aurora, Ontario, homes to stop the leaks, moisture, humidity, and further damage to your foundation.
Leaks, Dampness? Your Foundation May Not Be the Source.
In some instances, leaks and dampness in a basement or sub-surface area do not originate from a problem with the foundation itself, but from having an ineffective rainwater runoff system in place. A leaky gutter can create pooling around the foundation of your home, causing the ground to swell unevenly. The force of this groundswell can cause cracks to form in your foundation, and ultimately water intrusion. If we suspect your leak or dampness issue originates from an issue on your roof, we will let you know so you can call in the appropriate trade to remedy the situation. Depending on how damp or dry the soil is around your home, we may recommend delaying the waterproofing until your rainwater issue has been resolved.
