Exterior waterproofing is one of most efficient and reliable ways to perform waterproofing of your property. This technical solution includes 2 protections – damp proofing and waterproofing.
Damp proofing protects your foundation structure elements from the effects of moisture in the soil. The damp proofing is an asphalt base coat applied by hand or sprayed on your foundation wall.
Waterproofing has been designed to insure redirecting of underground water away from the foundation wall to make sure that water won’t seep through. The waterproofing collects all the water in the soil and re-directs it to special drains (weeping tiles) to drain it away.

Installation of Drainage System
In order to divert water away from the basement structure of your building, we’ll probably install weeping tiles. These are a perforated drainage pipe installed at the level of the foundation wall. It collects water from the ground and drains it to the city storm system or to the sump pump.
Installation of Fluid Membrane System
Prior to installation of waterproof screening, repair of the surface of the foundation wall is mandatory. That’s because we need a flat surface to provide a solid connection between the waterproof screening and the wall. Also, we have to make sure that all the cracks have been repaired prior to installation of any type of waterproofing system.
We coat the surface in a liquid waterproofing membrane after repairing the foundational wall. However, we can do this with a few different materials. Our technical consultant will advise which one is the most suitable. Therefore, we make sure we get the best outcome for your individual home.
Installation of Sheet Membrane System
After we apply the fluid membrane, we can install a heavy duty sheet membrane system. Then, certified technicians will make sure that foundation walls are completely protected.
