If you’re planning to renovate your basement to transform it into a newer, more livable space, it’s essential to consider interior waterproofing solutions to prevent costly problems in the future. Before you begin to put up new drywall, lay carpet or tile and bring in furnishings and textiles, it is critical to ensure that the space is dry and free from possible flooding.

Protect Your Investment!

Basement flooding is an unfortunate fact of home ownership due mainly to overland flooding (above ground openings), infiltration flooding (through cracks) or sewer backup affecting both older and newer communities. Although municipalities are working to manage basement flood risks by updating and improving city infrastructures, there are things that you can do in your home and on your property to reduce the risk of basement flooding.

Ways to Prevent Basement Flooding

Interior Weeping Tile Systems
Sump-pits & Sump-pumps
Backwater Valve (Back-flow Valve)

Other Things to Consider Before a Basement Renovation

Resurfacing Floors & Walls
Plumbing for Possible Washroom, Laundry Room, and Wetbar
Radiant Floor Heating – Energy-efficient electric concrete floor heating
