Waterproofing Scarborough | Underpinning Scarborough


Named after a seaside town in England, Scarborough in the Greater Toronto Area, has an interesting topography with two large watersheds — Highland Creek and the Rouge River.  Both flow into Lake Ontario through narrow channels.  Although Highland Creek watershed and parts of the river run through parks, a greater portion is devoted to urban uses. In some areas the river has been diverted or channelled to allow for industrial or residential developments.

The area is also home to the Scarborough Bluffs where the shoreline has been experiencing a great deal of erosion with some property owners forces to abandon their homes.  Due to its location in the South and its nearness to the lake, the whole Scarborough area experiences a moderately humid climate with warm humid summers and cold winters.

Home owners in an area with such he geography and climate are required to pay particular attention to the condition of the foundations of their home.  Watershed areas tend to have a higher water table and are susceptible to taking in water when there is any extreme weather or local flooding.  Taking steps to waterproof their basement just makes sense.

City Wide Group has been operating in the Greater Toronto Area for more than 55 years and has the experience and expertise to handle any basement waterproofing project.  They can identify any problems with your foundation and provide you with an estimate to conduct either exterior or interior waterproofing. As a family owned company, they know how important your home is to you and will treat it well. When they are finished, you will have a dry basement — with a lifetime, fully-transferable warranty.  Call City Wide Group today.
