Basement Waterproofing Cost Hamilton

When it comes to basement waterproofing, one solution doesn’t fit all. The age of your house/foundation, the depth, accessibility to the parameter of your house, the soil type, if the excavation is machinable or manual, the type and quality of materials used, the extent of foundation repairs needed, all these factors and more will determine the basement waterproofing cost.

In the case of exterior basement waterproofing, the basement waterproofing contractor has to have available space to dig down and around your foundation walls.

The Cost Of Basement Waterproofing In Hamilton

The available space will determine if an excavator can be used or the soil needs to be dug out by hand. If it is dug manually then that increases the man-hours and length of the projects and of course the price.

Existing landscaping that surrounds the house has to also be removed before the excavation begins, which can add to the cost depending on if you wish to have everything carefully removed to be replanted and reinstalled after the waterproofing process.

Also, the type of soil and depth that it needs to be dug out (for proper waterproofing the contractor needs to excavate down to your foundation footings). Again, more man-hours that need to be billed and a longer project timeline.

Depending on the condition of your foundation and if it has suffered severe cracks or even block separation that can also add to the cost of the waterproofing project. The condition of your foundation is the most important thing when it comes to structural integrity and repairing cracks, fissures and separations are the best investment you can do for your property.

How Much Does Basement Waterproofing Cost Hamilton?

All these factors can contribute to the basement waterproofing cost but the most important one is the materials being used. When you are in the process of receiving quotes for your waterproofing project, the most important question is what are the waterproofing materials the contractor will use. Different materials provide different protection. Also, be very aware of basement waterproofing companies that will sell you on their waterproofing services but perform damp-proofing which does not protect from water intrusion. So, the cheapest quote is not necessarily the best.

Finally, if your property does not have enough space around its parameter to excavate and install an exterior basement waterproofing solution then your only choice is to use interior basement waterproofing systems. Interior basement waterproofing costs more as the procedure is more complicated. Drywall and flooring might need to be removed, part of the concrete subfloor has to be dug out to install an interior weeping tile and sump pump system.

We had some issues with moisture in our basement as we back on to the Bruce trail hillside. I contacted Aquatech and within a couple days, Shawn came out and assessed the issue, made recommendations and supplied a quotation. This was all done quickly and very professionally. Their pricing was competitive with the other two quotes I received. I chose Aquatech because of Shawn and their excellent reviews. Shawn was a pleasure to deal with. If I had a question, he always picked up his phone and never rushed me. Slava led the 4-man crew that performed the work. He was also very professional and kept me in the loop with their progress each day. He also spent the time to explain the process as I have a habit of asking many questions. Slava and his team worked during four of the hottest days of the summer and never complained. They completed the work on time. I cannot believe how hard they worked. They even made a point of cleaning up the work site before they left. I would highly recommend them.
-Cam Shearer, Hamilton ★★★★★

Excellent service and quality of workmanship. I had a massive wrap-around deck that had to be removed in order to complete the work. The employees saved the joist and labelled each board allowing me to keep the order consistent. As a result I was able to save significant money on the rebuild only having to purchase decking boards. This consideration was unexpected and definitely appreciated. I would recommend this company with confidence to any of my friends or family.
