Drainage and waterproofing are absolutely essential to the safety of your home and property. Getting to know your local drainage heroes is essential, too, so you know that you can trust them to do good work. With that, here are some essential facts about us, Ashworth Drainage, so you know what you can expect when you need solutions to your water problems.
Where are you located?
We’re in the greatest city of all, the Forest City, Canada’s 11th largest municipality: London, Ontario!
Well, then, what are these services?
If you have a cracked foundation, water flooding your basement, flooded yards, leaky window wells, sump pump problems – heck, if you have just about any problems with drainage and waterproofing, we’re there for you. Anything from advice to excavation, residential or commercial, we are up to the task.
Excavation sounds pretty extreme.
Well, we believe an easy repair is better than a big replacement, don’t worry, and we don’t ask for deposits on our work. However, if you need comprehensive work done, we can excavate with precision around the foundation of your home, treating it as if it were our very own, and back it all with a 20-year guarantee. We know big jobs, but we know that we can provide the very best coverage so your problem doesn’t become a recurring one.
I hear all I need is a plastic membrane and my foundation will be protected. That sounds pretty easy. Should I go with that?
No! Please, please, please, do NOT use a plastic membrane for waterproofing your foundation. We understand it sounds like an easier way to go, but believe us when we say it’s not.
A plastic or rubber membrane is a sheet glued to your foundation walls. That’s all. You don’t get maximum protection from the soil and everything burrowing its way through the soil, so it can tear easily. Once that membrane is torn or breaks down, nothing stands between the moisture and your foundation. And think of the cost of having to continue repairing the membrane AND your basement?
Not only that, but a membrane doesn’t do anything for water flow. The moisture will just sit there, in the soil, waiting to get at your foundation.
That sounds bad! What do you offer as an alternative?
When waterproofing your basement, we offer the most comprehensive treatment around. One-inch round stone, laid next to the foundation walls, protects the foundation because any moisture that gets through is allowed to flow right through. It’s a barrier between the soil and your wall, yes, but it’s one that doesn’t let moisture just sit next to your basement.
We also apply a waterproof coating to the foundation to make the waterproofing as tight as possible.
So, waterproofing is good, then.
It’s GREAT, but it’s not the whole story. The rest is in our name!
We specialize in all kinds of drainage, from sump pumps, sewer installation, French drains, weeping tile systems – all kinds of methods that will take standing water away from your home. We give no-charge assessments and never ask for a deposit. We want our solutions to work best for your home and your property.
