Basement waterproofing Alberta


Residential waterproofing is an essential service for every home owners looking for a permanent solution to their wet and leaky basement.

This service is best achieved by installing appropriate heating to the tile reduce relative humidity to an acceptable level depending on the Usage Grade requirement. This is achieved by instituting the appropriate ventilation, dehumidification, or air conditioning systems.

In basement refurbishment or upgrading situations, waterproofing systems will invariably need to be applied internally. It is very rare that walls can be exposed to allow an external positioning of the system and, on the few occasions when they can, it is usually impossible to apply the membrane under the structure


To design an appropriate waterproof system, the structure needs to be surveyed and assessed to establish the following:

1.  The intended usage of the basement area.

2   The existing form of construction.

3   The existing ground conditions, e.g. height of water table, contamination.

4   The suitability of the structure to accept the chosen system.

Having investigated and established the form of construction and the soundness of the structure.

Having fully assessed the structure, a decision needs to be made as to whether a cementitious coating, a multi-coat render, or a cavity drain membrane is to be applied.

We apply the general principle and maintain that waterproof coating must form a continuous, unbroken membrane over the entire area being treated.

  • Why finishing your basement is important?

    Basement finishing is a very important way you can return value to your property when done properly and you can do this by adding extra living space without building an extension to the existing foundation.

    You can easily take advantage of the space you already have and convert it to either family room, game room, gym space, home office or playroom.

  • Why waterproofing your basement is important?

    1.  It is always better to waterproof your basements so that you can prevent your property from structural damage.

    2.  If you reside in a hurricane prone or heavy rainfall area, then you must not neglect waterproofing your basements. This is because these areas are vulnerable to flooding. Excess water from the ground might seep in through the basement easily.

    3.  If you don’t waterproof, the water seeping in can ruin your belongings, especially if they are made out of wood.

    4. Damp areas act as breeding platforms for microorganisms and contaminants. Different kinds of mold breed beneath damp and padded carpets or in between the walls. The most dangerous contaminant is the black mold since the high levels of toxins present in it can cause death.

  • How can encapsulating your crawl space save you 20% on your energy cost?

    A house as usually believe likes “to breathe”, taking air from lower levels and expel it via upper levels. With this being done, the air gets into the crawl space and caries all the humidity of the dirt, thereby exposed the crawl space.

    This phenomenon causes an increased load (extra energy) on your heating and cooling systems since the air must be heated , cooled or dehumidified.
