Basement Waterproofing in Ottawa

Would you like to avoid severe structural damage to your property? We at BOL-DAN Foundation and Masonry Inc provide basement waterproofing in Ottawa! Out of all the areas on your property, your basement is the most prone to moisture and wetness development. The soil under your basement often forces water and moisture through the cracks and openings in your basement floors. The presence of this moisture can damage the foundations of your home and cause irreparable damage if ignored. Moreover, it encourages the growth of various bacteria and mould and can potentially harm your health. 

Our basement waterproofing in Ottawa can help prevent all of this from happening but attacking the root of the issue. We install Platon® to your basement floor, which is a dimpled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) membrane. It prevents any moisture from the soil from entering your basement floor and prevents the resulting damage.

How it Works

It is imperative, as with all waterproofing systems, that foundation drainage and a traditional weeping tile (drain tile) is in place and functioning properly to ensure that water and moisture drained by Platon can be removed.

BOL-DAN provides a 20-year guarantee on waterproofing services.


The Benefits

Platon membrane is the right choice for basement waterproofing. Offered in all of Ottawa, this tough membrane wraps your foundation walls and keeps wet soil away. Here are some of the advantages of this advanced technology:


  • The membrane’s double leakage protection makes it possible to hold humid soil away from the foundation wall and provides it with the drainage it needs to stay dry.
  • If your foundation walls are showing signs of wear, the membrane bridges cracks, keeping the water out even if the walls settle, crack or shift.
  • It is also versatile, as it works on just about any kind of walls, including poured concrete walls, block walls, wood walls, ICFs and existing foundations.
  • Platon membrane is easily installed on your foundation walls. A special type of clip keeps it fastened to your foundations even in tough weather.
  • This membrane is environmentally friendly. The high-density polyethylene used in its fabrication comes from approximately 85% recycled material. In addition, none of its components will contaminate the soil or your home’s air.

The Importance of Basement Waterproofing


Your basement is a critical part of your home's foundation, which is why any damage to it potentially threatens your home's structure. There are many reasons why protecting your basement by waterproofing it is essential, including:

  • Prevents flooding - Basement flooding can seriously damage your home and your possessions. In some cases, the damage might be irreversible.
  • Prevent mould - The presence of mould and mildew can give rise to a host of health problems like allergies.
  • Prevents foundational damage - Moisture can creep in your basement floor's cracks and expand, worsening the damage in the process.
  • Prevents energy bill spikes - The presence of moisture in your basement can make it harder to cool it during the summer months and drive up your energy bills.
  • Prevents lowering of your property's value - A damaged foundation and basements directly translate to a lower value for your property.


Please contact us if  you have any queries regarding the damage moisture can cause in your basement flooring and how our waterproofing can help prevent it.
