Basement leaks are one of the most disappointing issues for homeowners. They can potentially cause a great deal of damage to your foundations.
At AWS Services we utilise state-of-the-art waterproofing techniques and materials to prevent water from the leaking basement of your house or residential building. If it is a below ground basement, we will also apply more materials and tools, such as sealant and sump pumps.
A small volume of water that slowly penetrates through a wall and floor of a basement is not very visible and can take years to be detected. AWS Services lists some significant warning signs that can help you find the invisible leaking at the early stage:
- Slowly widening cracks on the concrete walls or floor
- Bowing and buckling walls in your basement
- Paint bubbling and peeling appear
- Powdery residues on your basement walls
- When mould is showing up on walls and ceilings
The processes start with diagnosing the water problem and to find the sources of seeping water. After that, we begin to clean and get rid of excess moisture from the basement walls and floor, seal cracks and apply waterproofing coatings. We will also add gutters and extend downspouts if it’s needed.
