Basement Technologies® Pulls the Most Permits in the Waterproofing Industry!!!

Basement Technologies® ensures that our work is done right the first time and meets or exceeds all building code and permit requirements. It's for this reason that we pull building permits for ALL basement waterproofing & foundation repair projects when required. Be sure you question any contractor suggesting that a permit is not required. If a contractor needs you to pull the permit, it is likely because they are not licensed to do so.

We work closely with both the Hamilton Building Division and the municipalities within Halton Region to ensure our permits are certified in a timely fashion and that all inspections are performed at the right time during the project. In almost all occasions our inspections are passed during the initial visit of the building inspectors. If any issues are identified, Basement Technologies® will quickly make the necessary change and have it re-inspected.
