If your basement isn’t waterproofed, a variety of costly issues arise, from damaging mold build-up to full-scale flooding. Homeowners incur thousands of dollars in repairs, and basement water damage could also cause foundational issues. Fortunately, property owners have a range of cost-effective solutions at their disposal, but what is the best basement waterproofing system for your Brampton home?
While a backwater valve is not technically a ‘waterproofing’ tool, it is a useful mechanism if you want to keep your basement dry. Your sewer might ‘back up’ and push water into your basement, for example. Plumbers can install a backwater valve in the pipe or piping system, which ensures this backflow of water doesn’t occur.

Internal Waterproofing vs External Waterproofing Options
Many homeowners in Brampton focus on the exterior waterproofing exclusively, but a minimal amount of internal moisture quickly results in mildew, mold, and a host of other problems that can extend well beyond the basement into the rest of your home.
