Foundation Repair

All your foundation concerns can be repaired including cracks in walls/floors, bulging floors, misaligned/separated windows and doors, and sinking/leaning walls. Movement and/or settlement in your foundation can be caused by cracks due to improper soil compaction, expansive/contract clay depending on the weather condition, or poor maintenance around the walls surrounding vicinity. Structural damage not only destroys home value but it’s unsafe for you and your family. If you don’t take immediate action, the foundation can sink and cause more serious harm.

Repairs to Bowling or Buckling

Bowling or Buckling to your basement walls occur from hydrostatic pressure. This occurs when the force of the water against the walls exceeds the capacity of the wall’s weight. If there is bowling or buckling to your walls, then has been a developing problem. Your basement walls can bow to soil lethargy from the expansion caused by frost or expansive clays. Some signs that indicate bowling or buckling of your basement walls include walls leaning from the top, tilting, wall cracks, bulging in the walls, etc. There are many options to fix a bowing or buckling basement wall including replacement of the foundation, rebuilding the foundation walls, foundation anchors, Steel beam Foundation Reinforcement, and foundation helical anchors.

Bench Footing

If your foundation is not deep enough, one of the least expensive and safest approaches to deepening the basement may be with Bench Footings.  This involves stepping inward from the foundation walls, then digging to the desired depth, and constructing new footings which extend deeper than the depth of the new floor.  The new walls extend upward to the original basement depth, and are topped with a concrete cap.  The finished effect will be as if the house has a concrete bench extending along the foundation wall.  This process protects the original footings from erosion / movement which are certain to occur if the soil supporting the foundation is removed.

Since any changes to the foundation of your home risk permanent damage, basement deepening should not be attempted without consulting a reliable and well qualified contractor, such as Ontario Waterpoofing.  Our skilled professionals will assist you in evaluating your structure and recommend the best way to deepen your basement.

Foundation waterproofing

The goal of foundation waterproofing is to keep the foundation dry regardless of any surrounding water rather than keeping the water away. Identifying where the water is leaking is crucial to determining the appropriate repairs/solution. Leakage can occur through the floor, walls, top wall, or joints. Identifying the source of water leakage while it is active can ensure proper location by the contractor.

What are additional factors considered to calculate cost?

  • External waterproofing has to be dug by hand if there are underground utilities. An excavator is less expensive than digging by hand.
  • The accessibility of the area needs to be assessed as well as the length, removal, and reinstallation.
  • After the basement has been waterproofed, the expenditure to re-landscape the area is additional factor that is considered.
