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!
Contacted CW because a leak in the building's foundation was coming through our drywall and flooding the inside of our office. It took CW less than a day to completely patch the leak. There have been no issues since.
We scheduled an in-home assessment. Valentin suggested that we buy a new replacement valve because when we explained the issue, he said it must be the faucet/valve.He kept us updated prior to his arrival and his service was friendly and prompt. He was very helpful and quickly finished the task! Highly recommend!!He even followed up a few days later to ensure everything was working well!
Great experience with this company! Valentin was awesome! He made the whole process clear and easy to understand. Valentin was also super friendly and upfront about pricing making the whole experience comfortable.
High quality, punctual, professional and reasonably priced service for a second time. Jobs have included installation of an automatic water shut off valve, and installation of indoor/outdoor valves and vacuum broker. I’ll definitely use them again.
The whole experience with Canada Waterproofers was great from the beginning to end. In particular, Valentin was really kind and took the time to answer all my questions. I have a home that is 100 years old with an outdoor faucet with a quirky location and design that broke every winter. Valentin was able to figure out a great solution and replaced the outdoor faucet pretty quickly.
Technician Valentin was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. Explained every procedure before beginning work. Was using protection gear due to COVID situation. Completed job to my satisfaction. Thank you Canada Waterproofers for professionalism.
I am happy to choose Slavs Koval to replace my sump pump. He came on time, actually 8 minutes earlier. I am very impressed with his professional work and patience in answering my questions. He not only replaced sump pump which is very quiet when it is pumping the water out, but also showed me how to maintain the sump pump in the future. Definitely I will recommend Slavs Koval and Canada Waterproofers to my friends.
I used these guys to install a backwater valve and to make some repairs to the sewer line. It was a pretty big job in my opinion but they made it look easy. The crew came in on time, installed all of the equipment with a very minimum of interruption to service and cleaned up the property like nothing ever happened. They even filled out all of the paperwork for a rebate with the city. They obviously know what they are doing and make it look easy. I recommended this company to my neighbours and they received the same level of service and satisfaction. Would not hesitate to use them again for any other job.
I would highly recommend Canada Waterproofers. They are well organized. On-time as they scheduled. Valentyn the serviceman was prompt and expert. He did the job and made sure that everything works good and he was having a mask due to Corona Virus all the time. Thumbs up!
This company is OUTSTANDING. Valentin plumber arrived when he said he would and handled all work in a professional manner. At the end he made sure to explain the work that was done and made sure that we new what to do if the problem happened again. Valentin was a joy to deal with.
I contacted CW because I wanted to underpin my my century home in old Milton as I had 6' ceiling and wanted to increase them to 8'.Carl was very helpful and explained the underpinning process thoroughly. I found that I needed to obtain a permit before I could get quotations for the underpinning and Carl recommended a structural engineer who assisted me in obtaining the permits for construction.CW's quotations were competitive and their communication was fast and informative. Note: Canada Waterproofers were the only company that quoted a complete solution for the project. Others required that I hire a plumber or General Contractor in addition to their quotation.Work started on time and the two guys (Andrew and Stas) worked extremely hard until the project was done. I was always kept informed of the project's progress and any concerns that I had were addressed immediately.This is very professional company and their work has been first class. I highly recommend them!
This is the second time we’ve had Boris come to help us with our plumbing issues. Both times he was very courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. We highly recommend Boris to others looking for a solid plumber. He is our #1 go to!
Valentine from Canada Waterproofers came to my house and did a FANTASTIC job repairing a water leak we had. He diagnosed where the leak was coming from and then voluntarily chose to repair it with a high quality copper pipe which typically would've costed more. He also noticed another issue with the pipes where the previous contractor had implemented a poor shortcut solution that would've broken down over time and fixed that proactively as well. Valentine and Canada Waterpoofers went completely above and beyond my expectations and did even more than what was required of the job. They did all this at great value for the dollar as well. Highly recommend this company and technician. Thank you for your service!!!
We had a problem with our shower drain leaking and a botched repair job by a previous plumber. We needed to call in the real professionals this time and Val was our guy. Rest easy if he's the one to answer your call.From his calm and calculated demeanor to his willingness to listen and provide the right solution, it was an absolute pleasure to deal with someone at the top of his field. Highest recommendation!
Wow these guys are amazing. I had the pleasure of dealing with Carl. I had quotes from other companies which were comparable or cheaper, however after speaking with Carl I knew without a doubt I would be choosing Canada Waterproofers. His no pressure approach, guidance and sincerity won me over.
Boris is a true professional 5 star rating plumber because he determined the source of the 2nd floor shower leak right away which 3 others plumbers from other companies failed. He fixed the problem without opening the main floor ceiling. He showed up on time, ensured quality service and charged us a reasonable price for fixing the shower, replacing garburator and replacing kitchen faucet. All 3 issues completed in less than 2 hrs. We are so glad we found Canada Waterproofers online. We will strongly recommend Boris from Canada Waterproofers to our families and friends for their plumbing problems.
Canada Waterproofers are a great company that have amazing workmanship.everyone that i dealt with at this company was honest and had a great knowledge.I would highly recommend this company to anyone.
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.
Cracks are repaired and cement mix applied if the wall is made from either cinder blocs, stones or bricks.
Foundation coating applied
Aqua-bloc 720-38 is applied
Reinforcing mesh applied ( Yellow Jacket)
Another layer of aqua-bloc is applied to sandwich the mesh.
Delta-MS drainage membrane installed as a final layer of protection.
Finishing strip along the top of the delta membrane to sop debris from going behind the waterproofed wall and the membrane.
Approximately one foot of gravel is installed around the weeping tile to protect the weeper and also allow for filtration.
New weeping tile with a filter cloth are installed to carry away the water.
