It is essential to take this problem of water infiltration seriously, in order to avoid heavy repair costs. Because the longer you delay processing them, the higher the bill will be. We are experts in water infiltration treatment and our experts can help you solve this problem.

How to identify water infiltration?

It is difficult at first glance to identify water infiltration. There can be all kinds. Here are some things that will help you spot an infiltration:

  • Abnormal condensation in windows
  • Paint swelling or moisture visible around windows
  • Presence of mold stains on the walls or ceiling
  • Presence of traces of water on the ceiling
  • Friability of brick joints can cause seepage
  • Very high humidity level compared to normal
  • Presence of cracks in the foundations or on the walls
  • Damage to the roof covering

It is complicated to identify the source of infiltration. It can be water infiltration through the roof or infiltration through the windows. In this case, it is necessary to call on a caulking expert equipped with a thermographic camera to analyze the surface of the different materials and thus identify the sources of infiltration.

Water infiltration in the basement or cellar

Water infiltration in the basement or cellar in the basement can lead to mold growth, bad smells, damaged walls and floors, and ruined furniture and objects. It’s necessary to get rid of the water, address the underlying issues, and take steps to keep your basement dry.

If the water in your basement seems to be only near the exterior foundation wall, the problem is likely due to rainwater on the surface not draining properly. There are several issues to look for around your home.



Repair of water infiltration in the roof

The source of most roof leaks is difficult to find, as it comes from a location far from where the leak is occurring. To find the source of a leak, call a roofer’s roof inspection service or “think like water.”

Once the water has passed the roof, it runs along sheathing, roof rafters or above ceilings until it finds a place to drip – inevitably onto your favorite piece of furniture.

Look for a leak in the roof during the day. Go to the attic with a bright flashlight; only step on solid structural members and never on insulation or the top of the ceiling below – none of these will support you! Start above where the leak occurred and work your way up the roof, looking for excess moisture along the framing members. Do not forget to check the insulation of the windows and the roof, if you have any. It is advisable to install and renew your sealant regularly to guarantee the thermal and sound insulation of your home.

What are the consequences of water infiltration?

It is very important to treat the problem as soon as it is revealed, because it can have serious consequences on the health of the occupants of the house. At first, the symptoms are not serious: simple irritations of the eyes, nose and throat. But in the long run, too much humidity and the proliferation of mold trigger serious respiratory problems such as asthma attacks.

Water infiltration can cause significant damage to your home. For example, the consequences of water in the basement can cause much more expensive work than a simple caulking intervention. Indeed, the concrete foundations on the basement could be seriously damaged and your house would then lose value. It is therefore strongly advised to ask a professional to install expansion joints in the cracks to prevent the deterioration of your home.

Insurance companies are also alerted on these subjects. Sometimes the contracts do not even cover damage caused by water damage. We must therefore deal with the problem upstream.
