Our goal is to create homes that are as beautiful to look at as they are comfortable to live in. [...]
Having a basement is a great benefit when the time for renovation comes. There is no other space that is so original and versatile in functionality and design in the entire home. However, many homeowners don’t feel comfortable doing basement renovations in Ajax on their own, because of the wetness and dampness associated with the basement area.
Basement renovations start with a very thorough assessment of your waterproofing needs. There are many technologies and materials available that will help you control the water and moisture impact on your basement. It is best to hire a Certified Renovantage™ contractor to help you determine the cause of water and dampness in your basement.
Potential causes may include:
- Water that wells up between the foundation wall and slab
- Cracks in the foundation
- Gutters and downspouts that do not function properly
- Ground water infiltration
- Plumbing leaks
How to Handle Wetness and Moisture
Our basement renovation contractors in Ajax have the expertise to determine which method is best for your situation. The way you counteract water and moisture depends very much on how water and moisture gets into your basement. Therefore, determining the cause is the first step to handling the problem.
It is very important that your contractor carefully assesses all the potential causes of water damage. If you discover one cause, it doesn’t mean that it is the only cause. That is why our Pickering basement renovation contractors explore all the possibilities to make sure they eliminate all causes, and not just the most obvious ones.
Water damage can be controlled using the right technology and the right materials. In most cases, there are several alternatives. Our Certified contractors consult with each customer in order to determine what the best solution is. Price should not be the decisive factor in your decision. Remember that a basement renovation is a great value-adding project. You don’t want your furniture and tiles to be destroyed by water damage in a year.
