Wet Basement Foundation Waterproofing & Crack Repair Services in Kingston, Ontario

Kingston, Ontario, is a beautiful city located at the eastern end of Lake Ontario. While the city is known for its historic architecture and natural beauty, homeowners in the area must also contend with specific foundation drainage and waterproofing issues that can arise due to the area’s climate and geological features.

Foundation Drainage Issues in Kingston, Ontario

The climate in Kingston can be described as humid continental, with four distinct seasons. During the spring and summer months, the area can receive significant rainfall, which can lead to water infiltration and flooding. Additionally, during the winter months, the ground can freeze and thaw repeatedly, which can cause the soil to shift and settle, leading to foundation cracks.

One common issue with foundation drainage in Kingston is poor exterior grading. If the ground slopes towards the foundation, rainwater can pool against the foundation wall, leading to water infiltration and damage to the foundation. Poor exterior drainage can also cause issues with the soil settling unevenly, leading to foundation settlement and cracking.

Another issue that can arise with foundation drainage is a malfunctioning or inadequate drainage system. If the downspouts and gutters are not functioning correctly, rainwater can overflow and accumulate against the foundation. Additionally, if the foundation perimeter drains are clogged or damaged, water can accumulate in the soil around the foundation, leading to hydrostatic pressure, which can cause the foundation to crack and bow.

Waterproofing Issues in Kingston, Ontario

In addition to foundation drainage issues, homeowners in Kingston must also be mindful of waterproofing concerns. Without proper waterproofing measures, water can infiltrate the foundation walls and cause significant damage, including mold growth, wood rot, and structural issues.

One common waterproofing issue in Kingston is the presence of groundwater. Because Kingston is situated on a bedrock shelf that sits below the water table, groundwater can accumulate and put pressure on the foundation walls, leading to cracks and bowing. Waterproofing measures, such as exterior waterproofing membranes, interior drainage systems, and sump pumps, can help alleviate this pressure and prevent water infiltration.

Another issue that can arise with waterproofing is the presence of cracks in the foundation walls. Even minor cracks can allow water to seep into the foundation and cause significant damage over time. To prevent this, homeowners should consider applying sealants to any visible cracks and addressing any underlying foundation settlement issues that may be causing the cracks.


Homeowners in Kingston, Ontario, must be mindful of specific foundation drainage and waterproofing issues due to the area’s climate and geological features. Poor exterior grading, malfunctioning drainage systems, and the presence of groundwater can all lead to foundation damage and water infiltration. Similarly, cracks in the foundation walls can allow water to seep into the foundation, leading to significant damage over time. By addressing these issues proactively and investing in proper drainage and waterproofing measures, homeowners can protect their homes and ensure their long-term structural integrity.

The guys from DoneRite have saved an old guy a lot of grief. Their work was fast and very clean, getting into and out of the basement, and keeping my shelves protected.

They were friendly, knowledgable. When on breaks, they helped me understand some of their work.

No more up and down stairs emptying buckets every day, and my sleep is peaceful now.

The DoneRite team was masterful, I highly recommended them!

We bought our home in 2015. It had waterproofing previously, but was limited, we had more work done years ago. The extra work was effective but not covering our whole house. Sadly, more leaks, and more complicated.

I tried to learn enough before they came to do an estimate. They provided a quote covering both outside and inside and explained a technique to connect both wraps I had not heard of when looking up waterproofing.

A window well filled with water, and then leaked, like Niagara Falls, in May.

The crew at DoneRite excavated and repaired a crack within a few days of my call.

You guys are amazing. Thank you!
