Perimeter Drain Camera Inspection in Chemainus
Buying a home? Not sure about the state of your perimeter drains (drain tiles)? Remove doubt with a RainTek drain tile camera inspection. You’ll be able to see exactly where there are problems, if any, in your drainage system. If you do have a problem, and it can be solved with a simple cleaning, you could opt for drain snaking or hydro-jetting your drainage system at the same time.
Perimeter Drain Repair & Replacement in Chemainus
Depending on the severity of your drainage issues, partial or full replacement of your drain system may be necessary. Using a combination of diagnostic procedures (in-ground camera inspection, digging test holes, water tracing, etc) we will find the cause of the problem. At that point, we will recommend a solution, which may include cleaning the drain tile, replacing a small portion of line, or a full-scale perimeter drain replacement.
Foundation Repair Services in Chemainus
Chemainus, like other communities on the mid-island, has as much or more precipitation than the Greater Victoria area. Because of these heavy rain cycles, basement flooding is common, and we see a high number of homes with foundation issues. With every foundation inspection, we thoroughly review the entire perimeter drain situation to locate the cause of existing water issues, and to spot potential issues and symptoms of problems to come. After that, we can repair or restore your foundation, using the best practices we’ve developed over years of servicing hundreds of clients.
Exterior Waterproofing for Chemainus Homes & Businesses
Most Vancouver Island communities, including Chemainus, share similar flooding challenges. Buildings are built on dense clay soil or bedrock, which makes it easier for rainwater to seep through the foundation into the basement. Slopes, frequent seismic activity, and outdated waterproofing methods pose even more challenges. Without proper drainage and up-to-date waterproofing techniques, your basement can quickly become flooded or see leaks during heavy rains. Our elastomeric emulsive membrane waterproofing system offers triple-protection against water leaks. Unlike traditional liquid asphalt, using this membrane allows your perimeter walls to stay dry even if new cracks or splits form.
Rainwater Harvesting in Chemainus
Looking to take advantage of the rain beyond what leaks into your basement? Rainwater harvesting is a great solution to the frequent rain-drought cycles we experience on Vancouver Island. Not only can you use the water on your landscape, but also to supplement you gray water needs for toilets, laundry, cleaning, etc. And with recent initiatives announced by local Island municipalities, you might even get a financial incentive to do it. Our staff are certified by the Canadian Association for Rainwater Management, your guarantee that they are experts in their craft.
