"I Would Recommend MT Drains For Waterproofing"
We had the pleasure of working with Pavel and his team of waterproofers. Our basement wall crack was causing a leak in the basement. Pavel came the same day to investigate the issue, the guys did an amazing job and it like there were never here. I would recommend Pavel for waterproofing and plumbing to everyone.

Interior vs. Exterior Waterproofing
If you are debating between adding exterior or interior basement waterproofing to your home, it’s better to consider a combination approach. By combining efforts on both sides of your walls and foundation, you have the best chance of keeping your home dry and mould-free.
Internal waterproofing involves covering the inside surfaces of your external walls with a water-resistant layer. The process is easiest in an unfinished basement, but still possible for most homes.
External basement waterproofing takes similar steps. First, we seal any cracks or breaks in the walls. Then, we create a waterproof barrier between the groundwater and your home.
Sump pumps, weeping tiles, and related methods of water removal work equally well inside and outside the home.
Reviews From Our Happy GTA Customers
Cameron from Richmond HillTrusted Pros
We had a leak in the corner of our basement. Pavel examined the area and provided some tips on how to inspect and find the cause. After finding and locating the root of the problem, he provided me with a reasonable solution and reasonable estimate of cost. The work his crew did was professional and clean. I highly recommend Pavel, for I find him professional, reasonable, responsive and cooperative.
Diane from TorontoTrusted Pros
During the heavy rains in May, water seeped into my basement. I consulted many companies specialising in waterproofing basements and installing back valves. As the 2 jobs involved digging a deep hole, it seemed sensible to choose a company that could do both. The crew arrived promptly and quickly set to work. I had removed all the plants from the working area, so they could start digging immediately. Tarps were spread out to hold the earth excavated and after 1 day the back valve had been installed and trenches dug. On the 2nd day, again, after prompt arrival, the crew quickly set to work.They even dug up a plant that I was concerned about and replanted it later. The work was completed on the 2nd day and it was a large area to dig. I would recommend this company based on my observations of the work they did at my home.
Timothy from TorontoHomeStars
Pavel and his team did an excellent job in helping me with my leaking basement. They were very responsive and provided honest advice. Two days work was completed in one day and they took great care in keeping the area clean, returning it to its original condition. I would highly recommend MT plumbing!
DP From MarkhamHomeStars

Thiai from TorontoHomeStars
I selected this company from several estimates because it seemed to offer a good combination of experienced, professional knowledge and reasonable pricing. It more than lived up to expectations, with work completed exactly as specified, time lines met, custom made window wells designed as requested, and clear communication throughout. I would definitely recommend this company.

Benefits to Basement Waterproofing
Even if you don’t have cracks in your walls or pooling around your foundation, your home may still benefit from waterproofing the basement. The ground naturally holds water, so anything below the surface regularly sees moisture.
The dampness will seek through your walls and cause mould or mildew. It could also lead to long-term health issues for your family or break down the structures of your home if left unabated.
Keeping the moisture from entering your home saves money and convenience. You won’t have to repair or replace the damages that result from flooding or seepage.
Sump Pump Installation & Repair
Even the basement with the most solid construction and best waterproofing needs help to keep water outside where it belongs—it is where a sump pump comes in handy.
Sump pumps pull water out of one location and move it to another spot further away from your home. We can install these helpful devices outside around your house to prevent puddles or in areas that flood routinely.
The sump pumps are an ideal part of any comprehensive waterproofing plan. Based on your needs, we will either recommend a durable model with a long-lasting battery or a smaller version that’s great for more temporary jobs.
