Waterproofing

If you notice water entering your basement from the exterior of your home there’s a good chance that your house’s foundation is causing a problem. It’s important to at least have the situation looked at and assessed at the first signs of trouble. Left unattended, foundation issues can cause a whole host of issues that can be problematic for the structural integrity of your home, or even your health (if mold starts to develop.)

If you have a basement in Toronto (or the GTA) that is wet, leaking, humid or smelling of sewage, our plumbers can help. We offer the state-of-the-art methods and technologies for waterproofing both the interior and exterior of your home foundation/basement.

Our basement and foundation waterproofing services include:

  • Exterior Basement Waterproofing. The most common method of waterproofing is to stop the water from getting in from the outside, using proper methods that stand the test of time.
  • Interior Basement Waterproofing. In some cases, external waterproofing may not be an option; in those situations, water can be diverted using an internal waterproofing method.
  • Basement Crack Repair. Over time, cracks can develop due to settlement or the shifting of the foundation. Basement cracks are repaired using a series of plugs, drains and rubbers.

Depending on your home’s particular situation, the ideal solution for your wet basement will be determined when a DrainWorks Plumbing technician visits your home and does a full assessment. They’ll walk you through your options, which may include external basement waterproofing, internal basement waterproofing or crack repair. You’ll be presented with a detailed quote before proceeding with any work to be done.

Whatever option is best for your home, the services from our team of experts in Toronto and throughout the GTA ensure that your basement remains water-tight and stench-free.
