Last winter in Edmonton was an on/off winter, warm one day - freezing temperatures the next. When water falls and then freezes continuously eventually it gets in to existing cracks in the basement foundation .It then freezes and expands causing a separation in the wall of the foundation allowing water to seep in and cause basement leaks and damage. Another culprit is those weeping tiles getting old and plugged with sand and dirt . .Once that happens their is no where for the excess water to go except into your basement causing more headaches and damage to your residential home. Let us fix your leaking basement for good by using our basement waterproofing procedure. 905-823-4663.

Most builders in the Edmonton area offer only a one-year warranty against seepage (basement) on new homes. And when an existing home is sold, most provinces require a one-year dry basement warranty. This shows that the various watch dog consumer agencies are well aware that basement seepage problems exist, on a huge scale. Unfortunately, building techniques reflect the fact that homebuilders are not required to furnish a more comprehensive guarantee than the standard one year.
Hydrostatic Pressure = Leaks
In order to gain a greater overview of a complex problem, let's look at how the average Edmonton and Calgary basement gets built. First of all, the contractor digs a hole in which to place the basement foundation. Often times this excavation takes place in dense, heavy clay typical of many areas in the Alberta areas throughout the western areas. If it rains copiously during the excavation period and before the basement is built, one can see large amounts of water standing in the excavation hole because the rainwater cannot percolate downwards through the dense clay. If the excavation takes place in an area where springs are active, water can be observed gently running into the excavation site from the sides of the hole continuously, even in the absence of rainfall. Basements or crawlspaces are placed anywhere from 3 feet to 14 feet deep in the earth and the depths of excavations vary according to the architect's design. One thing is for sure, if the soil type traps and holds water for longer than 48 hours, then the basement built there is in jeopardy of leaking unless properly waterproofed and drained. But, we'll get to that later.
After the space for the basement is fully excavated and is large enough to accommodate the basement as well as an additional six to seven feet working space beyond where the walls will stand, the footing is poured. The footing is the continuous ribbon of concrete on which the foundation walls will be placed. The structural integrity of this footing is extremely important since tons of foundation walls, plus the superstructure of the house will be permanently resting on it. If shortcuts are taken or if the footing is somehow 'sub-code, then the chances that the basement will leak rise dramatically.
