    Interior vs. Exterior Waterproofing

    MT Drains & Plumbing uses interior basement waterproofing to redirect unwanted water away from the house. Often, this process includes adding drains and pipes along the walls to catch seepage and collect water under the foundation. The water then flows into a sump pit, before the sump pump ejects it.
    Meanwhile, exterior basement waterproofing is the first line of defense against water damage. It uses surface drainage and exterior drainage systems to prevent moisture from entering the home. For instance, a French drain or drain tile system actively transports water away from the foundation to keep your basement safe and dry.

    "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.

    These guys saved our life by showing up in time and replaced a leaky pipe easily! After that, we scheduled an appointment for the next day to check everything out, so the leaking problem won't bother us again because of the extremely cold temperatures. We had great communication and we received all the answers that we needed for future prevention of the problem. Well done job! I would say, above and beyond.

    My wife and I purchased an older home in East York with the understanding that we were going to need to do a fair bit of work to modernize the infrastructure. Plumbing being a major focus. I contracted MT to: replace cast iron plumbing stacks (there were two in my home), plumb our new kitchen main floor, and also a basement kitchen that we have, as well as some plumbing for two new bathrooms. We also decided to replace the clay sewers in the home which were about 75 years old and also install a backflow valve. Eddy, Pavel and their team of plumbers did a great job.

    Benefits to Basement Waterproofing

    We already touched on the importance of waterproofing from a monetary perspective. The investment also improves the overall structural integrity of a house. Moisture breaks down concrete, which the entire basis for your home. Waterproofing combats the erosion that can otherwise disrupt the foundation.
    Internal and external basement waterproofing also improve your health. The water reduction and diversion prevent pesky mildew and mould from taking hold. The drier, climate-controlled environment means you’ll spend less time and effort cleaning your basement, too.

    Subsidy Program in Markham

    Thanks to the city of Markham, you can get paid to invest in basement waterproofing. The city offers single-family, duplex, and triplex residential homes a subsidy of $3,400 if they install flood protection devices. You can earn it if you:
  • Install a backwater valve
  • Install a sump pump
  • Sever or cap the external weeping tile connection
  • Sever or cap the home’s storm sewer
  • A flooded basement costs the average Canadian homeowner $43,000 to repair. While flood insurance can cover part of that, you could still be left footing a several-thousand-dollar bill. The best way to protect your home from water damage is to invest in waterproofing.
