Markham is just northeast of Downtown Toronto and one of the most populous communities in the Greater Toronto Area. While there is still a fair amount of agricultural land, much urbanization has taken place and now Markham boasts many large multinational companies who have their Canadian head offices there.
With lots of hills, the intersection of two large rivers — the Don and the Rouge River and their tributaries, many natural spaces, homeowners in the Markham area recognize the importance of solid, dry basements. Sharing the same type of humid climate as the rest of the GTA, there are hot humid summers with lots of rain and cold, snowy winters with lots of spring melt off. Keeping water out of the basement during extreme weather or from excessive melt-off is important in this kind of area.
While steps can be taken to protect your home from taking in water or moisture, it’s best to have a professional company such as City Wide Group inspect your basement and recommend the steps required to keep it dry. Prevention is key to keeping your home comfortable. The City Wide Group is a family owned company with more than 55 years experience in the Greater Toronto Area. They can provide the expertise to conduct a basement waterproofing project for your home.
