Fixing Basements Leaks Right The First Time!

Gordon Crawford of Crawford & Sons Waterproofing in Ajax, Ontario has been in the business for more than 30 years and has been in close to 15,000 homes in Durham Region. Crawford & Sons have seen virtually every possible leaking situation you can imagine.
Crawford's extensive experience has taught him to be innovative and try different techniques to solve problems. He takes pride in his troubleshooting ability.
Crawford & Son's professionally solve problems at the lowest , most reasonable cost to the customer. In some cases that may involve excavating the entire perimeter of the house and replacing the weeping tiles, but that's because it is absolutely necessary. However, if Crawford & Son's believe they can try a different technique first that will provide the same results, they will.
An interior weeping tile system with drainage board can be extremely efficient and cost effective by saving costly damages to exterior landscaping .
Ignoring foundation leaks will result in costly repairs.
Once water begins to build up more and more around your house, the backfill becomes saturated. This added weight creates an enormous amount of force (known as hydrostatic pressure) on the walls. This pressure pushes the water into the basement through cracks and joints, with water most commonly being pushed through the floor-wall joint. Hydrostatic pressure on the walls also pushes water vapor through the porous concrete of your home.
Properly designed and constructed footing and foundation walls are often strong enough to hold up against the forces of nature for many years. However, the combined pressures of gravity, soil swelling with water, freezing and thawing, hydrostatic pressure, and tree roots, among other forces, are all working together to break through. Sooner or later, a crack will form, a seal will break, or something else will give way.
Crawford warns that it's important not to ignore the problem. He says homeowners who invest in their foundations will save money in the long term. Water corrodes and people tend to live with the problem until it escalates into a bigger one. It is essential to fix the problem as soon as possible.
