With the continuing rainfall in Edmonton, Canada it is not a surprise to find many homeowners with basement seepage and flooding. Countless Edmonton residents have called in contractors to help fix or prevent seepage problems. One of these contractors is Basement Systems Edmonton’s Glenn Suprovich.
Suprovich estimated that there thousands of Edmontonians with leaky basements and even more with moisture problems at this point. When asked if it business had been busy his response was, “It’s not busy. It’s stupid busy.” Suprovich worked with homeowners Sam and Lianne Unger to solve their problem with the dampness and smell of mildew in their basement. Their problem, a crack in their foundation, will cost them $950. That was his fourth appointment of the day. With appointments piling up there is a waiting list that is booked until September. His appointments have quadrupled due to the rainfall.
Suprovich said when it comes to waterproofing; homeowners are often reactive, not proactive. His advice for them is to check for cracks in basement walls and ensure sump pumps run properly.
