TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - Autumn's rainy weather is an important
signal for homeowners to proactively waterproof their homes so that
potential damage from Winter ice and Spring thaw can be averted.
Soaked carpets, destroyed home theatres, mouldy toys strewn around damp
playrooms, and sopping wet family photographs - are some of the sad

floors. With the increase of finished basements in Ontario, basement
waterproofing has become a necessity to protect the lifespan of our
homes and their valuable contents.

Many homeowners might not know it, but some Ontario cities subsidize
waterproofing programs to supplement their efforts to improve the
overall water system. For example, the City of Toronto's Basement
Flooding Protection Subsidy Program offers consumers subsidies of up to
$3,200 to assist with the cost of basement waterproofing. An example
subsidy available to homeowners is for sump pump installations, which
are subsidized up to $1750.* Sump pump installations can be one element
of a larger internal waterproofing and drainage system.
