Leaky Basement and Purpose of Internal Waterproofing
The basement, because of its below grade position, is vulnerable to water seepage. Statistics show that 90% of basements will eventually leak for various reasons, such as: Foundation cracks, form tie holes, blocked weeping tiles, drain back up and e.c. Water seepage will cause substantial damage to the house if not addressed in time. The extra moisture encourages the growth of mold and fungus, which can cause serious health concerns. Additionally, the structure of the entire house is at risk. This is why proper waterproofing of the basement is essential – the sooner the better.
The Biggest Concern For New Home Owners
Did you know that basement leaks are the leading, major complaint from new homeowners? According to Tarion Ontario New Home Warranty Program, if you signed an Agreement of Purchase and Sale for a new home and gave your builder a deposit, Tarion’s two year warranty program protects against water penetration through the basement or foundation walls.
High quality basement waterproofing plays a crucial role in protecting your property. Nowadays, foundation waterproofing in new houses is done during construction. However, tar is still used as a foundation sealant, and this is wrong. Tar rates as damp proofing, not waterproofing, and will fail eventually.
