Our team is here to help with waterproofing projects of any difficulty in Toronto, Metro Toronto, Downtown Toronto, Scarborough, 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 are some of the wet basement repairs we work on most often:
Water Coming Up from the Basement Floor
A common problem to have. There are several 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
This may be a sign that you have mould or fungi in your basement. Mould & fungi prefer high-humidity environments and wet basement problems may lead to mould growth over time. If you notice a musty smell in your basement, you should consult an expert.
Wet Wall Stains
Water can make it through 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 and repair after they happen.

Both internal and external waterproofing offer several benefits in terms of protecting a building from water damage and maintaining its structural integrity. Below are some of the benefits of each method.

Benefits of external waterproofing:

  • Provides a barrier against water intrusion – by applying a waterproofing membrane or coating on the outside of a building’s foundation walls, external waterproofing prevents water from entering the building in the first place.

  • Increases the lifespan of the foundation – external waterproofing can protect the building’s foundation and walls from water damage, which can extend the lifespan of the structure.

  • Reduces the risk of mold and mildew growth – by preventing moisture from entering the building, external waterproofing can reduce the risk of mold and mildew growth, which can have negative health impacts on occupants.

  • Can increase the property value – a building with effective external waterproofing can be more attractive to potential buyers and may command a higher price.

Benefits of internal waterproofing:

  • Can manage water that has already entered the building – internal waterproofing systems such as sump pumps and French drains can help manage water that has already entered the building, preventing further damage.

  • Can be installed without major excavation – unlike external waterproofing, which often requires excavation around the building, internal waterproofing can be installed without major disruption to the building or surrounding property.

  • May be more cost-effective – internal waterproofing can be a more cost-effective solution than external waterproofing.

Overall, both internal and external waterproofing have their benefits and can be effective in preventing water damage to a building. The best approach will depend on the specific circumstances of the building and the severity of the water intrusion.

The best time to do basement waterproofing is before you get an a leaky basement.

Other factors include:

  1. Dry season – it is generally easier to do basement waterproofing during the dry season, when there is less rainfall and moisture in the ground. This makes it easier to excavate around the foundation and apply waterproofing materials.

  2. Before renovation – if you are planning to renovate your basement, it is a good idea to waterproof it beforehand to prevent water damage to your new space.

  3. When signs of water damage appear – if you notice signs of water damage, such as dampness, mold growth, or musty odors, it is important to address the problem as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

Ultimately, the best time to do basement waterproofing will depend on your specific situation and the recommendations of a professional waterproofing contractor. Talk to one of our experts today so we can recommend the best approach in your specific scenario.

It’s worth noting that the specific steps of external basement waterproofing may vary depending on the type of waterproofing system being used and the condition of the foundation walls and other factors. It’s always best to consult with a professional waterproofing contractor to determine the best approach for your specific situation.

External basement waterproofing can typically involve the following steps:

  1. Excavation – the area around the foundation walls is excavated to expose the walls and footing.

  2. Cleaning & inspection – the foundation walls are cleaned and inspected for cracks or other damage that may need to be repaired before waterproofing can begin.

  3. Repairing foundation damage – if there are any cracks or damage to the foundation walls, they are repaired using an appropriate method such as epoxy injection, hydraulic cement, or other materials.

  4. Application of a waterproofing membrane – a waterproofing membrane is applied to the foundation walls to create a barrier against water intrusion.

  5. Installation of drainage system – a drainage system, such as a French drain, is installed to channel water away from the foundation walls and into a sump pump.

  6. Backfilling – the area around the foundation walls is backfilled with soil or other material to restore the grade of the land.

  7. Restoration – any landscaping or structures that were removed during excavation are replaced, and the area is restored to its original condition.

Exterior & internal waterproofing are two methods of preventing water from entering a building structure, but they differ in terms of their location and application.

External waterproofing involves applying multiple layers of waterproofing materials on the outside of a building’s foundation or walls, typically during the construction phase. This can involve excavating around the building to expose the foundation walls, cleaning the walls, and repairing any cracks. A membrane or coating is then applied to the walls, a drainage system is installed and the trench is backfilled. External waterproofing is often considered to be a more effective method, as it prevents water from entering the structure in the first place.

Internal waterproofing, on the other hand, is done inside the building, usually in the basement or lower levels. This can include the installation of a sump pump, a French drain, or a waterproof membrane on the inside of the walls. While it can be effective in managing water that has already entered the structure, it does not prevent water from entering the structure in the first place, which can lead to moisture buildup and potential mold or mildew growth.

Overall, external waterproofing is generally considered to be the more effective and comprehensive solution for preventing water damage to a building, but it can also be more expensive and disruptive to install. Internal waterproofing is often used as a secondary measure or as a temporary solution until the walls can be protected from the outside.
