Why Foundations Have Problems

Foundations are made of many different types of materials. This is why they suffer from a variety of problems. In Canada, the most common foundation types are solid poured concrete; cinder block; or stone. Less-common types are made from brick, wood and slab on grade foundations.

Why Foundation Problems Leads to Basement Leaks and Cracks

All basements can suffer from leaks and cracks, regardless of the material used to construct a property’s foundation. Issues can stem from a number of causes, including:

The good news is that most wet basement problems can be fixed from either the inside or the outside of the house. Plus, many times there is no digging necessary.

HELPFUL TIP: Not familiar with a “sill plate”? It’s the joint where the house sits on top of the foundation. This joint needs to be above the ground, but when gardens, driveways, patios and landscaping cover this joint, water will be carried into the house. These areas can be made waterproof.

IQ Testimonials

I wanted to send you a quick note to say how pleased I was with the work that was done on my foundation wall. Your quick response to my leaking wall was greatly appreciated. The technician was courteous and professional, and thoroughly explained the process he was going to perform to fix the crack. I originally thought it was just a leaking tie hole, but he pointed out the crack to me and proceeded to fix it. Thank you again for your efforts.
