Remove & Restore provides a wide range of basement leak repair services in Oakville. It is crucial that any leaks in your home are addressed immediately otherwise they could potentially cause serious damage to your home or business. If any kind of water damage is left untreated for too long, the repair process will require a more thorough, lengthy, and not to mention costly, fix.
There are some signs you can look out for that might indicate a leak in your basement. Most are obvious like standing water or excessive dampness in certain spots on the wall during heavy rains. Visible cracks in the walls of your foundation or an unfamiliar white powder residue are also telling signs. A less visible indication you might require basement leak repair in Oakville can even be something as seemingly insignificant as an increase in your family’s allergy symptoms.
This might be due to an unfortunate result of basement leaks and water damage; the growth of various different moulds and fungi. A damp, dark basement is the ideal environment for these unwanted fungi to prosper. In addition to possibly lowering the value of your property, the growth of mould can present serious health risks if left rampant.
Basement leaks can sometimes be an easy fix, while other times they can simply be a symptom of a much bigger problem like extensive water damage. In either instance, Remove & Restore can help protect you and your home from water damage through our Oakville basement leak repair services.
Cracks in the foundation and basement walls appear as a house settles over the years. They can also be caused by the expansion and contraction of the foundation’s material as we cycle through Canada’s seasonal changes. Unfortunately, cracks are a lot more common than you would think and can result in extremely damaging basement leaks.
Thankfully, foundation cracks can be repaired fairly easily with minimal disturbance to your home. The cracks are accessed from the basement interior and holes are drilled along their length, cutting across diagonally at a 45-degree angle that is level to the floor. Next, injection ports are installed and a compressor is used to remove any debris from the crack with a mild acid and water mixture. This mixture is then rinsed out with water and hydraulic cement is applied to the foundation face of the crack to act as a barrier for the polyurethane resin that is injected into the crack.
The purpose of a sump pump is to collect excess water that has leaked into your basement, draining it to an external location before it can become a major dilemma. When a sump pump is installed, a small pit is first dug into your basement’s floor and waterproofed using a plastic liner in order to collect the excess water. When the pit becomes fill, a sensor on the sump pump is triggered, signalling it is time for the water to be ejected.
Remove & Restore’s basement leak repair in Oakville includes the installation and maintenance of sump pumps. Installing a sump pump and its complementary interior drainage system is an excellent means to stop leaks and prevent future ones from happening.
If there are ever any problems with your sump pump, contact us immediately and we will come and repair it.
An interior drainage system is our complementary sump pump service for basement leak repair in Oakville. The drainage system is used to carry excess water away from foundation walls when ejected from a sump pump. A weeping tile is installed when there is no ideal pathway for the water to go to an exterior location from the building.
Window wells are a great option when you want to allow more light to be let into a basement and keep water and debris at bay in order to prevent leaks and other kinds of damage. It is important to know that in the window well repair process, the ground next to the foundation needs to be excavated so our repair technicians can access the damage.
As a part of our Oakville basement leak repair services, Remove & Restore can help if your window well floods or lets water into your home.
If you’re looking to take preventative steps to protect your home against flooding and potential water damage, waterproofing your basement is a great option! Additionally, if you are currently dealing with leaks, Remove & Restore can still implement waterproofing techniques to stop it from happening in the future.
We offer two types of basement waterproofing for basement leak repair in Oakville: exterior and interior. Exterior basement waterproofing requires a much more extensive procedure that can take longer than its interior counterpart. However, as it is extremely thorough, it oftentimes is the better basement waterproofing option. Cases where there is no choice but to do interior waterproofing measures is if the damaged area cannot be accessed from the outside, if there is not enough space to conduct the repairs, or if the basement is unfinished.
