Excellent service from beginning to end. We would highly recommend this company. Dean assessed the problem (water leaking into our furnace room as a result of a window well that another company had incorrectly installed previously) and provided a thorough estimate detailing every aspect of the project. He then scheduled the job to be done before the big winter storm that had been forecast. The crew arrived exactly on time and completed the job, to the very best professional standard, in less than a day. We are so glad we chose G.J. MacRae. Thank you very much.

The GJ MacRae Solution: Basement Waterproofing Burlington

The beginning step of our basement waterproofing process begins with a thorough initial analysis of your basement. We'll examine the current condition, identify existing issues, and discuss your concerns and goals.

Next, our experts will conduct a detailed inspection to identify the source of moisture and water intrusion in your basement. This includes checking for cracks, assessing the drainage system, and examining potential entry points for water.

Based on the assessment and inspection, we'll develop a customized waterproofing plan tailored to your basement's needs. This plan will outline the recommended solutions and the steps involved.

If foundation cracks are present, we'll prioritize repairing them. Our skilled technicians will use specialized materials and techniques to seal the cracks, preventing further water intrusion effectively.

To ensure comprehensive protection, we'll address the exterior of your basement. It involves excavating around the foundation, applying waterproof coatings or membranes, installing drainage systems, and optimizing grading for proper water diversion.

Interior waterproofing is the next step in our process. We'll apply waterproof coatings or membranes to the interior walls and floors, creating a robust barrier against moisture penetration. This helps to maintain your basement dry and free from water damage.

We recommend installing a sump pump system in areas prone to excess water accumulation. This system collects water that enters the basement and pumps it away from your home, ensuring a dry and protected environment.

Once the waterproofing process is complete, we provide ongoing maintenance and support. We'll guide you on maintaining your basement's waterproofing integrity and address any concerns you may have. Our goal is to ensure long-lasting effectiveness and your complete satisfaction.
