What to Expect from Foundation Repair in Oakville, Hamilton & Burlington
How Foundation Repair Works
Foundation repair typically involves a range of activities that aim to address problems with the structural integrity of a building's foundation. The specific types of foundation repair required will depend on the nature and extent of the damage. In addition, we will adjust specific basement repair services depending on the specific outcome you are looking to achieve. Here are some common activities that may be included in foundation repair:
Assessing the extent of the damage: Before any repairs can be made, a professional foundation repair contractor will typically evaluate the foundation and determine the cause and extent of any damage.
Installing piers or underpinning: Piers or underpinning may be installed to help support the weight of the building and transfer it to a more stable layer of soil. This can help to prevent further settling or sinking of the foundation.
Repairing cracks: Cracks in the foundation may be repaired using a variety of techniques, such as epoxy injections or carbon fiber strips.
Waterproofing: If the foundation is susceptible to water damage, waterproofing may be applied to help prevent moisture from penetrating the foundation walls.
Grading and drainage: In some cases, foundation problems may be caused by poor drainage around the building. To address this issue, grading and drainage work may be required to direct water away from the foundation.
Replacing damaged or deteriorated foundation elements: In some cases, foundation repair may involve the replacement of damaged or deteriorated elements of the foundation, such as concrete footings or walls.
Overall, foundation repair is a complex process that requires the expertise of a professional contractor. The specific steps involved will depend on the nature and extent of the damage, as well as the type of foundation and building construction.
What is Included in Foundation Repair?
Foundation Repair Services can Include Some of the Following
Foundation Crack Repair
Foundation crack repair is a common type of foundation repair that involves fixing cracks that have formed in the foundation walls or floor. These cracks can be caused by a variety of factors, including settlement, soil expansion, and contraction, or water damage. Often times foundation crack repair is done with the injection of an epoxy solution to repair the cracks before they get worse.
A sump pump is an important component of a basement waterproofing system. It is typically installed in a sump pit located in the basement or crawl space of a building. The purpose of a sump pump is to collect water that has accumulated in the sump pit and pump it away from the foundation, preventing water damage to the building. It is important to keep your sump pump well-maintained as a broken sump pump can lead to basement floods.
Basement Sewage Cleanup
Sewage clean-up in a basement can be a difficult task, but with the right knowledge and tools, it can be a successful venture. A critical exercise when it comes to ensuring health & safety of your home.
Exterior basement waterproofing is a process that involves sealing the exterior of a building's foundation walls to prevent water infiltration. It is typically done to address chronic water issues in the basement or crawl space, such as flooding, dampness, or mold growth. Exterior waterproofing is complex, but is often the best choice when it comes to foundation repair.
Basement underpinning is a construction technique that involves strengthening or stabilizing the foundation of a building by extending its depth and breadth. The process involves excavating beneath the existing foundation, pouring concrete footings, and extending the foundation walls downward. There are many benefits to basement underpinning, but one of the major ones is that it adds an extra floor of space to your property.
French Drain Installation
A French drain is a type of drainage system that is used to remove excess surface water and groundwater from an area. It is typically made up of a trench filled with gravel, a drain pipe, and a filter fabric. The trench is dug to the desired depth and the gravel is added to it. The drain pipe is then placed in the middle of the trench, and the filter fabric is placed over the pipe to prevent soil particles from clogging the drainage system. The excess water flows through the gravel, pipe, and fabric and is then directed away from the area. French drains are a way to prevent water damage and flooding.
Interior basement waterproofing is a process that involves addressing water issues from the inside of a building's foundation walls. It is typically done to manage water infiltration and dampness in the basement or crawl space. Interior basement waterproofing manages the water that seeps through the walls and directs it to the sump pump and later - outside your basement.
Emergency Basement Flood Repair
Basement water damage are tough to handle, it's even harder when you have a basement flood. Our flood restoration experts will help quickly assess the basement damage and will use commercial-grade blowers and dehumidifiers to prevent further damage to your property.
Installing a window well will make sure that your basement windows are safe from debris or water, thus keeping your views & space clean. This will also help prevent water from seeping through the basement windows.

What Our Clients Say?
I used Aquamaster for two separate home waterproofing projects and I was extremely satasified with their work and price. Their team are highly skilled, thorough and were able to complete the 10.5 hour job in one day. They were even kind enough to seal my window frame after I noticed a minor leak. I would highly recommend Aquamaster for all your waterproofing and plumbing needs.
The Aquamaster team is absolutely fantastic! They went above and beyond to diagnose and correct the problem that I had with my basement plumbing caused by old pipes and persistent tree roots. I used them once in 2012 and in 2020. I cannot say enough good things about this team - Highly recommend.
Aqua Master quoted me a very fair price for waterproofing and finshed the job ahead of schedule. We haven't had any water issues in our post-war hm since then. Highly recommend this business for its professionalism and quality of work. Hire with confidence!
