An elevator is a commodity as our cities like Toronto grow vertical. Nearly every structure from an apartment building to a condominium, store, warehouse, and even underground parking has an elevator. Buildings with elevators have a common issue with the flooding of an elevator pit that causes elevator mechanisms susceptible to early corrosion, and rust development, and leads to emergency breakage. Since often elevator pit is often one of the lowest points in the building, elevator shaft flooding is a big threat to normal functioning. How to protect an elevator shaft from occasional floods?
ROOTERWORX offers elevator shaft waterproofing. It is a complex measure that includes inspection of the drainage system of an elevator pit. Proper assessment may reveal blockages and other faults. Our technicians have the expertise to diagnose and fix drainage inside the elevator. Additionally, we inspect a sump pump, and repair, install, and replace it, if necessary.
ROOOTERWORX waterproofing company also offers infrared camera inspection. It effectively detects any hidden damages of the foundation, water passages, leaks, or wet spots, that we cannot observe with the naked eye.
Additionally, we specialize in negative side waterproofing, this method does not require us to do any excavation, which might be impossible or impractical. Crystalline waterproofing is an application of the crystalline directly on the affected surface, the crystalline compound penetrates into the cracks, dents, and pores of the foundation walls. What is remarkable is that crystalline besides stopping active leaks also gets activated by contact with moisture, and that means every time a new leak develops, crystalline would get reactivated and grow further into the foundation forming crystals.
