Any Toronto home can have a wet basement, no matter how well it is built. A lot of the problem lies in conditions beyond your control, such as the operation of the city sewer system or how high the water table is underground where the house is located. Therefore, it means that most houses need to be waterproofed to take care of wetness entering the house. It may be that your water problems can be solved without it costing a lot of money for labor, too.
Although it’s now common practice to reinforce foundations with Toronto waterproofing materials, a lot of older buildings weren’t built this way. Waterproofing both the inside and outside of foundation walls is the best case scenario, but treating just the inside will definitely help. Even if you have old waterproofing in your basement, you’ll find that the materials weren’t nearly as sophisticated back when your home was built, so it should be replaced or covered with modern waterproofing materials. If you are living in an area that is prone to having water in basements, it’s important to have the best waterproofing available.
The best time to waterproof a foundation, of course, is while the home is being built. By doing so you’ll know that the basement will be resistant to water seepage. It’s also a good idea to waterproof the basement floors. Doing all of this during construction makes it easier to get in all the corners and crevices where water could conceivably come in.
