Basement waterproofing is the home improvement few people see. Many homes and commercial buildings in the Hastings region need attention. A wet basement can ruin expensive belongings and disrupt our lives, as basements are often where family treasures and valuable equipment live, or where a family room, workshop, or additional office space begins.
Your basement may be leaky and damp and smell of mold and mildew. Or worse, flooded after a storm. That’s when you should look to SJS Construction. We know how to turn an uncomfortable or unsafe basement into a dry, odourless, welcoming room your family will enjoy year round.
What are your options?
There are 2 main ways to waterproof your basement. Usually the most effective way to go is from the exterior, repairing and sealing your foundation walls and directing water away from the home. Alternatively, sometimes it is beneficial to do waterproofing from the inside; by trenching within the cement floor and routing water to the sump pit.
