TYPES OF BASEMENT WATERPROOFING SERVICES:
Internal Waterproofing is used when the source of moisture is coming from the inside of your house. This method reduces moisture in the house, diverting water away from the basement via Sump Pump Installation or Weeping Tile Installation.
External Waterproofing structurally ensures the life of the wall and the building it supports. In order to protect your house from water problems like a Flooded Basement, External Waterproofing your basement via Window Well Installation is the only solution.
Sump Pump Installation is one of the most important things you can do to prevent basement flooding. A submersible Sump Pump can be installed into an ABS pit with a cover below the concrete level. The discharge is directed outside. To handle ground waters on any rain, the pit must be tied into the weeping tile from the new waterproofing or in the older system if it is in good condition.
Weeping Tile Installation is a porous pipe with small slits or weep holes in it. Weeping Tiles can be connected to a Sump Pump. When the water is absorbed, the Weeping Tile drains into a solid pipe leading direct into a sump pit, where the water collected in the sump pit can then be removed by a Sump Pump.
Concrete Floor Installation comes with a full dry basement package, including new undergrade internal sanitary drains. Dry basement guaranteed. Draintony provides 25 years warranty!
Window Well Installation is an effective way to prevent unwanted water from entering your basement. Window Wells will keep your basement clean and dry as it helps to collect water when it rains or snows. Window Wells also prevent moisture damage to the windows themselves by preventing soil away from them.
WHY DO I HAVE A LEAKY BASEMENT?
When a basement is excavated, the soil that will be backfilled around the new foundation will be much looser and collect water faster than the surrounding, undisturbed virgin soil. When the foundation walls are poured and the ground is backfilled, the soil surrounding the new foundation will collect water and hold that moisture up against it. Water will eventually accumulate and enter into the foundation walls as they age and deteriorate causing your basement to leak. Whether you live in an older home or one that’s newer, foundations that leak cause all kids of damage to your basement walls. If your basement is leaking, it’s important to get it repaired as soon as possible. Even if it’s not leaking, it’s a good idea to add that extra layer of protection such as Internal Waterproofing, External Waterproofing and Sump Pumps to prevent damages in the future.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO STOP A LEAKY BASEMENT?
Do you want to pay thousands of dollars in structural repairs? Moisture can cause all kinds of damages to bricks, concrete and block structures. Therefore, maintaining a dry basement is more important that you think, as mould spores can travel throughout your home and could be detrimental to the health of you and your family.

IS YOUR BASEMENT PROTECTED FROM A FLOOD?
It is important for your home to be internally and externally waterproofed. Internal Waterproofing is used when the source of moisture is coming from the inside of your house. This method reduces moisture in the house, diverting water away from the basement using a Sump Pump or Weeping Tile. External Waterproofing structurally ensures the life of the wall and the building it supports. This method stops seepage of water into the house and protects it from frost and foundation erosion.
One of the most important things you can do to prevent Basement Flooding is installing a Sump Pump. A submersible Sump Pump can be installed into an ABS pit with a cover below the concrete level. The discharge is directed outside. To handle ground waters on any rain, the pit must be tied into the weeping tile from the new waterproofing or in the older system if it is in good condition.
Downspouts disconnection is the process of detaching the downspouts from the pipes or the paved areas and redirecting water to flow into the lawn, a garden or a rain barrel where it will soak into the ground. It is the redirection of the gutter to discharge free in garden areas and reduce runoff from a property.
You can protect your property from Sewer Backup by installing a backwater valve on the main sanitary drain. A backwater valve is a cost-effective device which allows a one way flow from your home to the sewer and closes up as soon as backflow is detected.
