Basement Waterproofing and Parging

I hired Chico and his crew for two jobs. The first was waterproofing a basement wall from the outside. The job was in a tight space underneath a back porch. His crew did a great job in very tight quarters. The second job was in November 2019 when I had Chico come back to lay a concrete pad around the side of my house and parge the side wall. It looks fantastic. The clean up afterwards was perfect. Chico responds to texts and phone calls immediately and regularly comes out to the job site to make sure everything is going well. He is easy to deal with, fair, reliable and accountable. I would definitely recommend him.

Basement waterproofing and parging

Chico and his crew did a great job. We had internal waterproofing done as well as the exterior walls reparged. As the scope of the job increased once we decided to dig down for more height and redo the slab, he was able to provide us with options, recommend solutions and implement at a very fair price. He is trustworthy, fair and always quick to respond to any questions.

Waterproofed our basement extension

Chico was fabulous! I would highly recommend him. His crew did a great job. It took longer than they had expected and we had some bad weather, however, they got the job done and we are very happy with it.

Exterior Waterproofing

We have had Chico do two projects for us and are very pleased with the work he and his crew did. Chico is so professional in his approach to work. It is obvious that he is very experienced and is able to determine exactly what should be done. He responds to phone calls and texts immediately, is punctual and entirely trustworthy. Chico is pleasure to work with we couldn't recommend him more highly.

Waterproofing

We used Aquashield Waterproofing based on a neighbour’s recommendation. Excellent decision. The owner Chico was great with communicating and keeping us updated on the progress from start to finish. He waited for approval from Ontario One Call for underground infrastructure locating prior to starting. They were pretty much on the job every day with the exception for bad weather when we had some heavy rainfall in late October and a surprise snow storm in mid-November. His crew was amazing. They were professional, courteous and did a great job with the waterproofing and clean-up. Chico provided all the necessary documents (proof of insurance, business license, WSIB) prior to starting the job. We would definitely recommend Aquashield for waterproofing and foundation work.

Basement Window Well Drainage Repair

Chico and his crew has helped our small condo building with two window well drainage issues. Both times they were fast, efficient and the cost was very reasonable. Highly recommended!

Foundation Repair.

We used Aquahield for a foundation leak this past spring on a house that is more than 80 years old. The damage was caused by the rain storm from August 2018 and had water leak into the basement.

We dealt with the owner of the company throughout the entire process who was very professional and honest and trustworthy. We were explained of the possibilities of the worst case as the house is very old and were given a quote and even prepped the area for us to get through the winter season. The work was started in May and were given a 2 week timline from the start to the end of the project.

After the initial dig, the problem was much worse than anticipated but with a few options we found a way to fit the extra work with in the budget and was the project was finished on time.

We would recommend AquaSheild to anyone that is looking for fix a leak in their foundation or wants to reinforce it.

Waterproofing

We have all heard the horror stories. It’s spring. The snow is melting, the rain is heavy and the basement floods. The reasons for a wet, or even damp, basement, can be many. Heavier rainy seasons and milder winters are causing the ground to freeze and thaw several times before spring. This contributes to constant shifts in the ground and wrecks havoc on cracked or weak foundations. As torrential rain downpours become more commonplace, these compromised foundations simply cannot keep the water out. more about wet basements ....

Regardless of the reason for a home’s wet basement, Aquashield Waterproofing will assess each issue and identify the most suitable solution to fix the problem(s). more about Aquashield’s specific waterproofing techniques ...

Foundation Repair

There are many different ways to repair foundations depending on the type of foundation, the source of the problem and the level of damage. In many cases, the foundation wall can be repaired with relatively simple and straight-forward techniques. Depending upon the specifics of the issue and the accessibility of the problem area, repairs can be completed from either the outside or the inside of the residence.

In extreme cases, homeowners may need to consult with a structural engineer to confirm whether a home’s foundation is sound or if the foundation may need to be rebuilt. In other cases, another foundation wall built next to the original will provide the necessary reinforcement.

Each waterproofing and foundation repair company will have its own preferred methods. Typically, however, the solution is simple. Some companies, however, will sell homeowners on extremely expensive methods, technology and materials. At Aquashield Waterproofing we will not complicate things unnecessarily. We will work hard to identify the most effective and cost-efficient solution for your home’s foundation issues. more about foundations & their problems ...
Underpinning

When a basement requires more ceiling height or the foundation needs to be strengthened and stabilized, both can be achieved through underpinning. This process involves carefully digging out small sections of the ground below the existing foundation wall in a 1-2-3 sequence that will add depth and stability. To ensure continued support for the structure, it is not safe to underpin an entire length of a wall in one go. The work must be done in sections. A small section, below and beside the existing foundation is excavated and temporary supports may be installed to support the main weight-bearing walls during this process.

The excavated sections are then filled with concrete to create a new foundation or series of concrete footings beneath the original. This process of underpinning is an effective method to extend the depth and width of support offered by the original foundation. Once the foundation wall is lowered, a new concrete floor can be poured, providing additional height in a basement.
