Window wells are one of the main causes of water leaks in to the basement. If your Toronto home has this issue you should contact a waterproofing professional
Cracks along window wells
Window wells are a weak spot in the foundation, and are susceptible to cracking which can cause them to leak.
Cinder block wall cracks
Older foundations are generally built with cinder blocks and this is fine until they age. As the wall ages then the mortar between the blocks tends to loosen or crack which allows water to enter the basement.
Sump pumps overflowing or failure
Sump pumps have many benefits when installed correctly, but they can also cause problems if they are not installed correctly, or they fail due to either age or just bad quality, there are many good Sump pump systems that will last the test of time, and also there are many backup and warning systems that can be installed.
Drains and sewers backup causing water to enter basement
A drain that is backing up is a big issue and should be addressed immediately, you could have a root issue or even a broken sewer pipe that could be letting raw sewage enter your basement.
If you are seeing water rise from any drain in the basement then is it time to call in the professionals.
Concrete slab cracks causing leak in basement floor
A crack in a concrete slab could mean a few things, but the most common is hydrostatic pressure, which is a build up of water pressure under your slab trying to escape and eventually will push up and crack the slab, but also a crack may be less sinister, and it could just be shrinkage. Watch out for a white powder around the cracks which is the tell tale for hydrostatic pressure.
Weeping tiles are an important part of protecting your home from water entering your basement.
If a weeping tile becomes clogged or broken then water pressure will build up and enter into your basement either through the base of the wall or through cracks in the floor.
This is the most common issue when it comes to concrete foundations. Your concrete foundation is similar to a swimming pool in reverse.
If you have a crack and water hits it then it will leak.
Crack concrete foundations should be addressed ASAP.
Leakage at the footing
This type of leak may be caused by a few things, one is that the weeping tile has failed, and another is that there is a crack in your cinder block foundation and water is entering into the hollow blocks and showing up at the base of the footer.
A professional will be able to find the cause of your leak.
DOES YOUR OAKVILLE HOME HAVE A WATER LEAK?
Whether it’s new or old homes, any and all are exposed to the risk of foundation leaks which can cause severe damage to your basement walls.
The majority of basement leaks happen because of vertical-step or horizontal cracks that usually appear on the outside of your basement walls. Moisture can enter through the underground wall where your gas and electric lines enter. Our recommendation in order to prevent any water from getting into your walls would be to have all openings sealed correctly and back-filled, all around the outside.
Basement leaks can be caused by many other problems. Loose or cracked porous bricks that sit on top of your basement wall can also accumulate water, building up moisture and leading to cracks. Another instance is when basement windows are poorly installed. Ensuring that installation is sealed and secure will ensure the basement waterproofing will be effective with no weak points.
Other examples include open mortar joints, poor caulking jobs where the line for an air conditioning unit is, and poor installation work around door entrances or any other openings in the house where water leakage is possible. Canada Waterproofers Oakville wants to ensure that there are no weak points, so no water leak will penetrate your home.
Basement excavation can also pose a problem. When soils are filled around the new foundation after a basement is excavated, the soil itself is much looser when compared to undisturbed ground. Undisturbed soil doesn’t collect as much moisture as loose earth. This moisture will eventually make its way into the foundation walls as they deteriorate over time. The pressure that is caused from the moisture makes it more difficult for the foundation to withstand on its own.
We pride ourselves in ensuring the work we do is done right the first time, to ensure your home is leak-free!

Want to commend Carl for his knowledgeable diagnosis and efficient service on a driveway trench drain repair. He was always accessible and approachable throughout the entire process. All questions were addressed in a confident and timely manner. Also want to thank Dima and his crew for their hard work. Upon completion the site was left in pristine condition. Canada Waterproofers came highly recommended by some past clients and we will do the same in the future. Will call on this company again if in need of a pluming issue or solution.
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.
I did a lot of research before choosing this company. Met with Carl and he was super professional. His quote was reasonable and has lifetime warranty. I asked Carl to return to touch up on a small area and he was very responsive to my request. Absolutely great customer service with this company. I look forward to no more wet basements!
I am very impressed by the efficiency and professionalism performed by Carl and his team. Carl did the on site visit and gave me recommendations and a detailed scope of work, which was beautifully done on budget with no hidden fees. The workers were really hard working and very friendly. I am very happy with the service and thanks to the google reviews which help me find the company.

I would like to thank the team at canada waterproofers for doing such a good job fixing the leak in my basement. The job was completed on time and on budget. The staff were very friendly to talk to and very professional. Thank you very much for a job well done!
We were pleased with the service provided by Canada Waterproofers.Great job not without mentioning the knowledgable and honest staff.The team took a lot of care and attention to details in work and was able to eliminate the issue at its source quickly.
Very impressive company.First of all Valentyn is a nice person, very good at assessing the problem (experienced), and easy to work with.He came at the appointment time and assessed the issue very quickly. He determined that the cylinder needed replacing to fix the lukewarm water issue (cylinder allowing mixing of water) and that the spout was causing the leak behind the wall.It all made sense, based on where the leak was damaging the wall.He reseated the old, loose spout with new (orange) plumbing tape (thicker than white tape) and it screwed in tightly to the vertical. The new cylinder will be ordered to replace the old one, if available. Otherwise, Valentyn will redo the faucet system. He explained how this would all be done if that needed to happen.We are very happy with Valentyn and and would recommend him to anyone.
Plumber Val was terrific to work with. Was able to come out the next day to fix my leaking pipe. Professional, communicative, and friendly. Got the job done on time and on budget, and did a great job. Highly recommend Canada Waterproofers!
This is a very HONEST company. The price was excellent - much more reasonable than any other quote received. Valentin was extremely nice, worked efficiently and did not try to up sale. Excellent company. I would highly recommend Canada Waterproofers and would not hesitate to hire this company again - extremely satisfied.
This is not the first time I have used Canada Waterproofers because of their excellent reviews on Home Stars and professionalism. Valentin did a thorough, competent job, and took the time to explain the result he found. You won’t regret having business with them.

By ensuring the interior of your home is waterproofed by Canada Waterproofers Oakville it will prevent any water or moisture from entering your finished basement. This will provide you with a dry living space for you and your family.
In order to make sure your finished basement remains dry for many years to come, using the proper vapour barrier and insulation is essential.
If the improper vapour barrier and insulation is used after the interior waterproofing has been installed, it will increase the risk of condensation build- up which can cause health problems for you and your family. This happens due to water being trapped behind the membrane, which builds up condensation quickly. Over a period of time it will deteriorate your home’s basement walls and cause mould.
Spray foam is the solution to this type of problem. The foam itself becomes its own vapour barrier and will stick to the waterproofing membrane to insulate and ensure your home is sealed against any moisture, eliminating the chance of getting mould.
Thankfully, Canada Waterproofers Oakville is available to solve even the most complex waterproofing issues in any and all homes. Give us a call to get your free on-site estimate.
