How Long Will my Project Take?

Cost of Basement Waterproofing, Underpinning & Related Services Toronto, GTA & Beyond

Internal Basement Waterproofing

Duration: 1 Day - 2 Weeks

Interior Basement Waterproofing will help manage the water that has already made it to your basement. Water will then be directed to the sump pump and pushed outside your basement.

Basement Crack Repairs

Duration: 1 Day

In most cases, basement wall and floor cracks will take about one day to complete.

Window Well Installation

Duration:  1-2 Days

Window well installation is a farly popular service. Duration of installing a window well will depend on materials that we need to excavate (soil or concrete), type of a window well, number of window wells etc.

Crawlspace Encapsulation

Duration:  1 Day

Crawlspace encapsulation projects usually take 3-10 days. However, the details will depend on your specific project. Our team will estimate the duration during the on-site estimate.

Exterior Basement Waterproofing

Duration: 1 Day - 2 Weeks

Exterior Basement Waterproofing requires excavation around the foundation of your property. The walls will then be cleaned, and cracks repaired. We will then apply multiple layers of waterproofing materials and install a drainage system around the foundation of your property. The trench is then backfilled and landscaping/concrete installation will be done.

Basement Underpinning

Duration: 4-6 Weeks

Basement underpinning projects can take anywhere between four and six weeks to complete. Specifics will depend on the size of the basement, how hard it is to access the basement and other factors.

Basement Walkout Construction

Duration:  3-6 Weeks

Basement walkouts can take anywhere between 3-6 weeks to complete. Specifics will depend on how easy it is to access the basement, the materials that we need to excavate (concrete, soil etc.), and other details specific to your project.

Wall Crack Injection

Duration: 1 Day

Depending on the specifics of the cracks we find we may recommend injecting the cracks with an epoxy-resin solution to do the repair.

Bench Footing

Duration: 4-6 Weeks

Basement benching can take anywhere between four and six weeks to complete. It's a process similar to underpinning, except it does not require digging under the foudnation, but leaves a "bench" inside the basement instead.

Egress Window Installation

Duration:  1 Day

Egress windows can be easily opened from the inside without any keys, tools, or difficulties. It usually takes about one day to install an egress window, however, the details may vary.

Understand the Duration of Your Project

Factors that Impact How Long Your Project Will Take

  • Waterproofing Method – exterior basement waterproofing is often more expensive.

  • Scope of Work – basement waterproofing projects can include a number of other services – window well installations, basement underpinning (floor lowering), etc. The more services included under basement waterproofing, the higher the cost will be.

  • Depth of the Foundation – foundation depths in Toronto generally range between 5 and 8 feet. Deeper foundations require more labor and materials, which results in a higher cost of basement waterproofing.

  • The Extent of the Damage – before we start your project, our team will examine your foundation to determine the extent of existing damage. Small basement wall cracks can be repaired using relatively inexpensive materials such as epoxy injection. More extensive foundation repairs (such as foundation reinforcement) are more complex and increase the cost of basement waterproofing.

  • Materials – if your basement waterproofing projects only involve foundation crack repairs cost of materials will be lower compared to interior waterproofing or exterior waterproofing.

Basement Waterproofing Reviews

What Our Clients Say?


Stephanie G.

Residential Client

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!
