What is the difference between waterproofing and damp-proofing my basement?

Basement waterproofing in Edmonton is much different then basement “Damp-proofing”, which is what foundation contractors provide when building new basements. Basement waterproofing involves the use of a brush or spray-on waterproofing product that offers a higher quality, and more permanent solution to water seeping into basements through foundation walls. This is because basement waterproofing is a more labor and time intensive process, and is why new home builders usually opt to simply damp-proof foundation walls.

Damp proofing will usually prevent your basement from leaking for a few years – to a few decades, depending on the contractor. This is because all foundation walls will crack in their lifetime due to Canadian freeze – thaw cycles, leaving lightly damp-proofed basement walls vulnerable to leakage.

Waterproofed basement walls have the ability to offer more resilience to movement – due to the thickness and durability of waterproofing membranes over damp proofing graded materials.

What does basement waterproofing cost in Edmonton?

The cost of basement waterproofing in Edmonton can range from $250.00 – $450.00 per linear foot of foundation wall. Depending on the basement waterproofing contractor, this pricing scales down based on the area requiring waterproofing and can include repairing any defects in the foundation wall, such as cracks and areas of leakage, and usually includes replacement of the weeping tile along the foundation walls footing.

This cost is also reflective of the repair method a company will use to first repair, and then waterproof your basements walls, and usually also includes the addition or replacement or any window wells in the area, vertical drains leading down to the weeping tile, and the replacement of weeping tile in the areas excavated.

Our team at Abalon has been waterproofing basements since 1981 in Edmonton, and has our franchises experience across Western Canada to properly assess and waterproof your basements walls.

My basement is leaking, how do you waterproof basement’s in Edmonton?

Basement waterproofing involves the excavation of soil around your foundation walls, adequate shoring of the surrounding soils, to then apply a waterproofing membrane that surrounds the exterior of your basement walls and waterproofs the walls from the surrounding water table and penetrating moisture present during the spring – fall months. Most basement waterproofing contractors will firstly repair any defects in the foundation walls, such as cracks, holes, or leaking joints. Then a waterproofing membrane is applied by brushing on, or spraying on to cover the entire existing walls. 

At this time, it’s common for the waterproofing contractors to also inspect and replace the weeping tile surrounding the footing or install new weeping tile where none was present. Once the waterproofing membrane has had a chance to cure, the area is then back-filled. 

Since 1970, we have gained the knowledge and expertise to properly waterproof basements in the Edmonton and surrounding area. This is due to our franchises experience across Western Canada, providing us with the foundation to prevent your basement from leaking or seeping ever again.
