Every single time it rained, Elfie's basement would flood. Not only was this a strain on her and her family but it was a strain on her bank account, cleaning and drying after even the slightest storm. After having a perimeter drain system installed- complete with sump pump system- Elfie has had no reported leakage problems, dampness or flooding in her basement.
"I feel Omni has resolved my wet basement issue with an appropriate, quality and long lasting solution that suits my needs and I would definitely recommend Omni to anyone in a similar circumstance. Thank you!"
Many times we think that basements are supposed to be damp, musty and leaky. But that is not true. Ken put up with his wet basement for years, thinking that was how it was. Basement = damp. Using an entire floor of his home as a living space and having that area compromised by water and its adverse effects made Ken take action and install a waterproofing system by Omni Basement.
Laurie and Brian had a waterproofing system already in place in there basement. It was a simple sump pump system that was supposed to keep their sub-floor space dry. But whenever the basement flooded, it stayed flooded with virtually no drainage happening at all. Sometimes a sump pump alone is just not enough. If the pump cannot handle the load or if the incoming water is greater than the amount the pump is dispersing, then you will have problem. Omni Basement Systems can install a full waterproofing system in your basement.
The loosened-up, unpacked backfill soil that is used to fill in the space around a houses' foundation after it is constructed will naturally settle or wash away with each successive rain. That leaves gaps around the foundation where water can pool up and seep into your home. That is exactly what Lyndsey was experiencing. That reservoir of water created a constant source of trouble until Omni Basement Systems was contacted and a waterproofing system was installed.
Having a sump pump is a good idea if you are prone to a leaky basement. But what happens if that pump dies out or there is a power outage during a torrential downpour (as often happens). What happens to all that water then? Mike experienced that dilemma first hand and the damage and clean-up was enough for him to call Omni Basement Systems for some help.
Paul and Paula had a persistent water problem in their basement. One of their options was to either place an exterior drainage system around their foundation or to waterproof the exterior foundation walls with a water-resistant coating; both common remedies offered by other contractors. In order to perform either of those installations, the entire outside area around their house would have had to be excavated, removing all trees, sidewalks, driveways, shrubbery, porches and patios.
After a recent heavy storm, Shirley C.'s basement was completely under water. "Water was coming in like Niagara Falls," she lamented. She couldn't handle another basement flood and she knew she had to do something right away. That is when she called Omni Basement Systems. Omni Basement Systems is Greater Hamilton's premier basement waterproofing company, offering over 28 exclusive, patented products to custom design a solution for every type of wet basement problem.
A very common area for water to enter into a basement is the basement window. Even if the window is closed tight, water can still leak in around the outside of the window if it is not sealed or is lined with weather stripping properly. Tom had this problem as well as water leaking in at the floor/wall juncture. By sealing the windows and not allowing water to come in and installing a perimeter drain system around the outer edge of the basement (where the water was coming in), Omni Basement solved Tom's water problems.
Being constructed below ground level, basements and crawl spaces are subject to water leaking and damage more often than other parts of your home. This constant infiltration can cost hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars in clean-up and repair costs. Tony had spent an abundance of money on refinishing his leaky basement with no end to the problem...until he contacted Omni Basement Systems.
