Exterior Basement Waterproofing Toronto

Everybody wants a dry, safe, healthy home. But our changing climate isn’t a situation that is going to reverse itself suddenly. The home’s foundation walls and basement floor are under constant water pressure (hydrostatic pressure, as the soil becomes more saturated). This situation worsens with heavier rains and more rapid snowmelts, on top of the fact that city sewer and drainage infrastructures are ageing and are less reliable.

So perhaps you find water in the basement or water stains on the walls. Probably there is a musty smell, or the onset of mould, in the basement area.

Inaction is not a solution – it will only get worse. Water will always find its way through – concrete is a porous material. It will absorb water. It will erode over time. A particularly vulnerable area is where the concrete floor meets the wall, or through the mortar between concrete blocks.

Of course, you can do it yourself. YouTube has plenty of DIY waterproofing videos, and you can apply a sealant to cracks, but that’s more like a finger-in-a-dam solution.

The most proactive, effective way of tackling the problem is an Exterior Waterproofing solution.

It’s a major excavation project. There is a lot of soil to be placed up on the ground. It requires expertise both in the products being installed and the process of installation itself. For example, without the gravel on top of the new perforated weeping tile/pipe, and soil below it, the system won’t work. The holes in the pipe need to be pointed the right way (down). A fabric barrier and gravel in the system helps keep dirt from clogging holes in the pipe. There are many different steps involved.

If done properly, this is the best way to protect the basement of a home from water seepage, or worse, a flood. It tackles the problem at its source.

But it’s complicated and labour-intensive, and needs to be done the right away. Get it wrong and water will still leak in. It will be challenging to go back for a do-over. It’s probably best to leave a job like this in the hands of professionals – so it’s done correctly the first time.

These guys are organised and tidy. They finished the work on time, protected everything inside my house in the area they were working and cleaned up at the end. I do not hesitate to offer a strong recommendation for their services.

I was very pleased with the work completed by Andrew and his team at Canada Water Proofers. The consult to execution was a seamless process- the interior waterproofing was done exceptionally well, on time and on budget. Couldn’t be happier!

We recently used Canada Waterproofers for 3 seperate, complicated basement water, drainage, and flooding issues. Carl and his team consistently provided outstanding customer service with quick responses, willingness to answer questions and explain issues clearly, giving us high degrees of confidence in their work. They made these stressful situations more manageable than we expected or imagined. We highly recommend their services. One of the best experiences we ever had with a house-related specialist.

I am always skeptical of companies in these types of industries receiving so many 5-star reviews but with this one, I get it. Similar to others, we had a fantastic experience with Canada Waterproofers. They did interior waterproofing (with sump pump installation), camera inspection and service pipe replacement (from outside the house), as well as a main water valve change for us. Andrew/Andrii (the client rep) was a joy to deal with; responsive, friendly, detail-oriented, and gave the most competitive quotes (balancing experience and price) out of the many places I reached out to. Andrew the technician and the rest of his team were also great; they were on time, worked efficiently but carefully, and were communicative and professional throughout. We had a complicated service pipe issue that required detailed inspection and some analysis on how best to tackle it and Carl (the owner, I believe) came to do the inspection himself, who was extremely knowledgeable and clearly very experienced. We received detailed quotes before accepting the jobs as well as professional looking packages with warranty certificates, etc. following completion. The way this company presented itself - which it then backed up with its work - made us feel confident and comfortable throughout the process and brought my anxiety way down (which is not an easy thing to do, as I'm sure Andrii, who patiently answered my many, many calls and questions, can attest to). I have yet to find any reason not to go back to them for all plumbing/waterproofing related work in the future.

The company is not after your money. Carl, the owner came to our house, inspected everything and explained all the steps. He is honest and has a sense of humour. Afterall, he did not recommend waterproofing our basement. Can't get any more honest than that!

Andrew and his team did an amazing waterproofing job for our basement. Andrew came to our house to do the estimate and I received the quote the next day with all the details. Throughout the process, Andrew was very responsive and the job was done on time. His crew were very professional and organized. I definitely recommend Canada Waterproofers for anyone who needs that kind of project to be done.

I've worked with Slava and his team multiple times. Once for basement waterproofing, the second time to fix a sewage pump disaster that another tradesman caused, a 3rd time to upgrade the water supply, and a 4th time to fix an emergency plumbing issue. All on different properties and occasions, and all of which have been excellent work done! Slava and his team are experts at what they do, pricing is fair, and always professional. There's a reason why I keep going back. Don't look anywhere else, this is the team you want to work with when it comes to waterproofing and plumbing!

You don’t need to call around for a waterproofing company. We’ve done it, and we won’t go anywhere else. Carl is professional, knowledgeable, personable, and timely. Most importantly, he provides HONEST advice during assessment. He’s helped us with our house in Mississauga and our rental property in Hamilton when we found water in both basements. Thanks again

Andrew from Canada Waterproofers just completed the installation of a new sump pump at my basement. He is knowledgeable and accommodating. The owner is very responsive as well. I used to doubt the authenticity of all 5 star google reviews under a single company. But Canada Waterproofers does deserve positive feedback. Thank you, guys!

We worked with Carl to quote out waterproofing our foundation. On top of the great customer experience during that quote process the on-site team doing the work was hard working, efficient, polite and eager.Carl went out of his way in terms of follow ups to ensure we were happy with the service.Highly recommend this service to anyone having issues with their waterproofing and foundation patching.

Andrew and his team (all the Andrews!) were fantastic. From the initial on-site inspection for basement foundation leak and sump pump installation quote, to all subsequent communication, booking a date that worked for our household, and day of repair, the team was professional, friendly, courteous, informative, honest, on time, super tidy, and provided excellent follow-up. I honestly can't think of a better experience for customer service and quality tradesmanship start-to-finish. Looking forward to quoting future underpinning work with this awesome crew.

I was having water leaking in our basement for a while just after periods of rains. ,but every time it rain the leak was getting worse , therefore making me more anxious. So after looking online for a reputable company I came across Canada Waterproofers. I gave them a call and got surprised on how quick they were able to come and take a look and give me the best solution to our situation. Not only was the technician very personable ,but the workers doing the job as well. When they finished actually the area they worked on looked better than before. Definitely will be recommending them.

We had an excellent experience with Canada Waterproofers - they completed basement waterproofing, a sump pump installation and a back water valve installation. Their prices were comparable to other companies and we appreciated that they provided all the services we required. Andrew was courteous and very helpful answering all our questions throughout the process; a pleasure to work with. The crew was quick and efficient, the worksite was left tidy at the end of every day, and the work was completed on time. We've had quite a bit of rain since the work was completed and everything has remained dry. Would certainly recommend Canada Waterproofers!

Carl and his team were excellent and we have no hesitation recommending. Having undertaken an entire home renovation Canada Waterproofers provided great recommendations and pricing. We had a very tight timeframe to get the work done to stay on schedule. They started on time and finished in half the estimated time allowing us to maintain schedule. Work included a complete replacement of all our underground sewer lines, moving of rough in’s, new window wells and an entire interior waterproofing of all walls.

This is our second time using Canada Waterproofers and would never call anyone else. Their first basement waterproofing job for us has held for the last 6 years with no problems despite occasional heavy rains. They gave us really beautiful window-well covers too- our friends and neighbours ask where to get them . Aside from great work, they are on time, on budget and very polite. Plus they take good care not to damage your property! Also, great communication and follow-up! Carl and his team are top notch!
