Our Basement Waterproofing Projects Often Include
Popular Basement Waterproofing Services in Toronto
When designing your project, our team of waterproofing contractors will consider a number of factors – the location of the property, how much groundwater is in your area, the extent of water damage, your plans for the property, your budget, and more. Depending on these factors we will recommend the right basement waterproofing services.
External basement waterproofing is a method of preventing water from entering a building's foundation or basement walls by creating a waterproof barrier on the outside of the structure. This barrier is designed to prevent water from penetrating the walls or foundation and entering the building, which can lead to water damage, mold, and other issues.
This methodology typically involves excavating the area around the foundation, repairing wall cracks, french drain installation, backfilling the trench and landscaping.
Exterior Waterproofing Cost - $100-$300/linear foot
Basement underpinning is a construction method that involves strengthening the foundation of a building by increasing the depth or width of the foundation. This is typically done by excavating underneath the existing foundation and installing additional supports, such as concrete or steel beams, to increase the load-bearing capacity of the foundation.
Underpinning is often used to stabilize foundations that have been weakened by soil movement, settling or other factors. It can also be used to increase the height or depth of a basement, allowing for additional living space or storage.
Basement Underpinning Cost - $85-$450 per linear foot
Window well installation refers to the process of creating a secure and functional enclosure around basement windows or below-grade windows that are partially or fully below ground level. Window wells serve multiple purposes, including providing natural light, ventilation, emergency exits, and access for maintenance and escape.
Window Well Installation Cost - $1,600-$4,000
Basement plumbing rough-ins & basement bathroom rough-ins are some of the most popular services along with new construction waterproofing. They involve our team of Aquamaster waterproofing contractors installing pipes and vents for the plumbing system in new construction projects. This service involves routing pipes through wall cavities, running vent stacks to the roof, laying underground pipes, and installing fixtures and end elements etc.
Internal waterproofing is a method of preventing water from entering a building's basement or foundation walls by installing a waterproof barrier on the inside of the structure. This barrier is designed to prevent water from penetrating the walls or foundation and entering the building. It is important to note that internal basement waterproofing doesn't prevent water from entering the foundation walls, but helps manage the water that has already made it through.
Interior Waterproofing Cost - $70-$350/linear foot
Cracked basement walls or floors will almost 100% lead to water leaks or even worse. After the basement cracks are detected, we will go for foundation crack repair. Foundation cracks will be injected with an epoxy-resin solution that bonds the pieces of the concrete foundation together. While larger basement wall and floor cracks may require other repairs.
Foundation Crack Repair Cost - $1,500-$3,200
Basement leak detection services are the first step our team will take before the leak repair. Pipes, basement wall cracks, and many other issues can create wet or damp basement walls & floors. Our team has all the necessary equipment and training to identify the source of the leak and repair it.
A weeping tile, also known as a drain tile or french drain, is a porous pipe that is used to manage groundwater around a building's foundation. The pipe is typically made of plastic or clay, and is installed around the foundation.
The purpose of a weeping tile is to collect groundwater and divert it away from the foundation to prevent water damage and flooding. Ask our experts how your property can benefit from weeping tile installation or cleanout services!
Sump pump installation is often a part of interior basement waterproofing. Sump pumps are mechanical devices that are used to remove excess water from the basement or crawl space of a building. It is typically installed in a sump pit, which is a hole dug into the basement floor or crawl space. The sump pump is designed to automatically activate when the water level in the sump pit reaches a certain point, and then pumps the water out of the pit and away from the building. A sump pump is a common element of internal waterproofing systems.
Sump Pump Installation Cost - $500-$3,600
A backwater valve, also known as a backflow preventer or sewer backup valve is used to prevent the reverse flow of wastewater or sewage into a building's plumbing system. Heavy rainfall, flooding, or a blockage in the public sewer system, can cause
sewage or wastewater to back up into the building causing water damage and contamination.
If your property has a crawlspace, you need to take care of it. Due to the difficulty of the task, crawlspaces often don't have concrete floors, as a result, moisture can enter the space causing foundation damage, mold growth, and poor air quality on your property. Our team can help seal the crawlspace, install a dehumidifier, or convert the crawlspace into a full-sized basement. If you have a crawlspace, ask us how to make the most out of it!
Walkout basement construction is an excellent way to add functionality to your basement and allow better ventilation, sun, and more. Walkout basements are a popular investment for property owners who are looking to increase the value of their property or make their basement into a more functional space or even convert it into a rental with a separate entrance.
Common Waterproofing Problems in Toronto
Signs that you Need Basement Waterproofing Services
Aquamaster Basement Waterproofing can help with a number of services, all designed to prevent wet basement problems & repair basement leaks. Depending on the specific source of the leak, your project can include a variety of leaky basement services. Our team is here to help with waterproofing projects of any difficulty in Toronto, Metro Toronto, Downtown Toronto, Scarborough, Richmond Hill, Hamilton, Oakville, Mississauga, and other locations throughout Ontario.
Our team of basement waterproofing contractors is here to help repair existing leaks and help you keep the water out of your basement. Here is some of the wet basement repairs we work on most often:
Water Coming Up from the Basement Floor – a common problem to have. There is a number of potential causes of this problem, with groundwater being one of the common ones.
Wet Basement Walls or Floor – if walls or floors in your basement feel damp when you touch them, there must be something causing this. In scenarios like this, our basement waterproofing contractors often start with leak detection services. Once the source of the leak is identified we repair the cause of the leak.
Tie Rod Leaks – tie rods are used to hold together the form for foundation pouring. Once the tie rods are removed, this leaves a hole in the foundation that may allow water to enter the basement.
High Humidity – one of the signs of basement leaks is high humidity. Moisture makes it through the foundation and humidity in your basement increases.
Musty Odor – may be a sign that your basement has mold or fungi in your basement. Mold & fungi prefer high-humidity environments and wet basement problems may lead to mold growth over time. If you hear a musty smell in your basement, you should consult an expert.
Wet Wall Stains – water can make it through the basement wall cracks, through a leaking window well, or through another source. If it does, you will likely see basement wall leaks. This is a sign that you should talk to waterproofing contractors.
Basement Leak Prevention – ideally, waterproofing should be used to prevent basement leaks before they happen, as opposed to leak detection & repair after they happen.

Basement Waterproofing Testimonials
I used Aquamaster for two separate home waterproofing projects and I was extremely satasified with their work and price. Their team are highly skilled, thorough and were able to complete the 10.5 hour job in one day. They were even kind enough to seal my window frame after I noticed a minor leak. I would highly recommend Aquamaster for all your waterproofing and plumbing needs.
The Aquamaster team is absolutely fantastic! They went above and beyond to diagnose and correct the problem that I had with my basement plumbing caused by old pipes and persistent tree roots. I used them once in 2012 and in 2020. I cannot say enough good things about this team - highly recommend.
Aqua Master quoted me a very fair price for waterproofing and finshed the job ahead of schedule. We haven't had any water issues in our post-war hm since then. Highly recommend this business for its professionalism and quality of work. Hire with confidence!
