Leaky Basement Problem In Milton

Basement leaks are not a new thing in Milton homes. While most homes don’t have waterproofing installed, water damage can wreak havoc on your property, causing structural damage, mold growth, and costly repairs. Usually, there are two major factors for basement leaks, i.e. outside water or cracks in the foundation. During the rain, water seeps through concrete basement walls as there is no barrier which will be a torture for you and your home. Besides, hydrostatic pressure also makes them more prone to cracking, so it’s necessary to have a proper defense mechanism to resist it. Whether you own a residential or commercial building in Milton, having effective waterproofing measures in place is crucial.

With the right waterproofing company like GJ MacRae, you can safeguard your property and enjoy peace of mind, knowing that your investment is protected. So, protect your basement with the best waterproofing company in Milton.

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.

Window Wells

Window Wells Milton

Basement windows are a great source of natural light. They can also act as a designated fire escape, but what happens when window wells begin to deteriorate, clog and leak? Our hand-excavated exterior window well repair solutions are permanent and allow for guaranteed unimpeded drainage all year long.

The GJ MacRae Solution: Basement Waterproofing Milton

Firstly we start by inspecting your basement to identify the source and extent of water infiltration. This includes checking for cracks, leaks, and signs of moisture.

In some cases where water is entering through the foundation walls, external excavation may be necessary. We dig around the perimeter of the basement to expose the foundation walls for further inspection and repair.

The third process is foundation repair. We repair any cracks, gaps or damaged areas in the foundation walls using appropriate materials such as hydraulic cement or epoxy injection. This helps to ensure a solid foundation and prevent future water penetration.

Once we finish with foundation repair, an interior drainage system, such as a French drain or a channel drain, is installed along the perimeter of the basement floor. This system collects water that enters the basement and directs it to a sump pump.

Now it's time to install a sump pump. It is installed in a designated sump pit within the basement. It collects water from the interior drainage system and pumps it away from the foundation, preventing water buildup and potential flooding.

The basement walls are treated with a waterproofing membrane or coating to create a barrier against moisture. This helps to stop water from seeping through the walls and causing damage.

If necessary, an interior drainage channel may be installed along the base of the basement walls. This channel collects any water that seeps through the walls and directs it towards the interior drainage system.

For added protection, an exterior waterproofing membrane or coating can be applied to the foundation walls. This helps to further prevent water infiltration from the outside, providing a comprehensive waterproofing solution.
