Whether you live next to the shore or up on the escarpment, the highly trained and experienced technicians at the City Wide Group will assess your basement to determine where water has been entering your home. They’ll recommend the solution and when it’s fixed you will get a life-time transferable guarantee. Call the City Wide Group --experts who know the building codes, safety issues, drainage patterns and how to protect your home from unwanted water.
The internal waterproofing system is used primarily when the access to the exterior walls of the foundation is not possible. In addition, budgetary considerations also play a role and if undertaking basement waterproofing with the exterior method does not meet your project’s budget, then this is the way to go. The result is a dry basement for your Hamilton home.
Residential foundations leak for various reasons, such as; a congested weeping tile system, where the weeping tile can longer flow due a blockage of debris, soils or tree roots. Horizontal or vertical cracks in the foundation, or separation of blocks, voids where the foundation and footing meet, allow water to enter into the basement.
Underpinning is a two-fold winner. First, it creates added height to your existing foundation, which in turn adds 100% usable living space to your basement. This procedure is usually done with basements that do not have enough headroom to navigate around. Second, underpinning adds positive value to your existing home, also giving your home an added selling feature for re-sale.
Commercial foundations leak for various reasons, such as; a congested weeping tile system, where the weeping tile can longer flow due a blockage of debris, soils or tree roots. Horizontal or vertical cracks in the foundation, or separation of blocks, voids where the foundation and footing meet, allow water to enter into the basement.
CWG Inc. was referred to me by a friend who had previous work completed by them and was extremely satisfied.
My story begins with a less than favorable home inspection... turning up higher then acceptable moisture readings in my basement. Selling a house is stressful enough, let alone being told that your driveway/side of house requires excavation.
Things would take a turn for the better after Casey (from CWG) arrived. He assessed my situation with a calm demeanor and answering my numerous questions with professionalism. Within an hour of him being there, my mind was more at ease, I had a quote in hand and most importantly...his promise that the job would be completed in a timely manner.
Casey was also sensitive to my house closing date and was able to squeeze me in ahead of schedule - this meant I had more time to concentrate on my impending move. His crew, lead by Steve were excellent and walked me through the entire process - going above and beyond by adding a second window well that wasn't on the quote....I can't say enough about these guys....clean-up was if they weren't even there.
I would not hesitate to recommend Casey and City Wide Group to any friend or family member!
