    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.

    Interior vs. Exterior Waterproofing

    If your basement is often wet, it can lead to complications, such as persistent strongodours and rampant mould growth. Leave it long enough, and it could also damage floors, walls, pillars, and ceilings.
    The wetness could be due to water leaking into the basement from outside from wall seepage or poorly installed basement windows. It could also be internal from a damaged pipe or floor seepage from hydrostatic pressure. Depending on the cause, we can provide a lasting solution through external or interior waterproofing.
    Exterior waterproofing involves waterproofing and sealing the foundation of your home to cover cracks that can let in moisture. Interior waterproofing usually involves concrete coating or installing a drain along the base of your walls. The drain will catch water seepage and safely deposit it outside your basement.
    Let us perform a free on-site estimate to determine if interior or exterior waterproofing is the best solution for waterproofing your basement.

    Benefits to Basement Waterproofing

    It might be tempting to ignore a basement leak, especially if you rarely use your basement or the leak is out of sight. Ignoring the leak doesn’t mean it isn’t causing problems, and it could eventually cause health issues and thousands in property damage.
    The sooner you get basement waterproofing, the sooner you can begin using the room safely, including as a home theatre, studio, or hobby room.
    Early basement waterproofing also prevents:
  • Extensive and expensive water damage
  • Compromising the structural integrity of your building
  • Mould growth, which can be hazardous to your health
  • Damage to plumbing or electrical connections in your basement
  • Basement Foundation Crack Repair Experts

    Various aspects cause basement foundation cracks, including seismic activity, drying, or your house settling into the soil beneath it. Some cracks are harmless, but if your basement cracks are leaking moisture, plugging the holes with cement or other sealants won’t do the job.
    Why Is There a Crack in the Basement Wall?
    At MT Drains & Plumbing, we determine the extent of a crack, assessing it to see if it goes all the way down to the foundation.We’ll dig to the footings to find and fix the foundation crack, which seals the crack at the source and stops moisture from leaking through and damaging your basement further.
    Do you have a foundation crack that’s bothering you? Let our experts at it.

    Subsidy Program in Toronto

    Basement waterproofing is crucial to preventing avoidable water damages, but it isn’t the cheapest project. Thankfully, the Toronto Waterproofing Subsidy Program makes things more affordable.
    Being a recognized waterproofing company, Toronto homeowners can access this subsidy by working with us. Taking advantage of the subsidy can save you up to 80% on installing flood prevention tools, like backwater valves and sump pumps. The subsidy also covers projects like capping, pipe severance, and foundation drain.
    We’ll provide all the guidance you need for claiming the subsidy payment of around $1,700 from the City of Toronto. You can only qualify for the subsidy if you are a registered owner of a Toronto duplex, single-family home, or triple property.
    Also, the property must be an existing one and not have already exhausted its maximum payable subsidy.

    Sump Pump Installation & Repair

    Sump pump installation is an important part of basement waterproofing, especially if your home’s location is prone to basement flooding.
    We install sump pumps at the lowest point of your house, where water leaks or floodwater would accumulate. The pump will have an automatic flotation switch that powers on as soon as the water reaches a specific level.
    Once on, the pump will drain the accumulated water out of your basement and deposit it outside. It’s an excellent preventative measure for keeping your basement safe and dry, and we can supply and install an option that’s a perfect fit for your home.
    We also provide convenient and cost-effective sump pump maintenance and repair services, keeping your installation working perfectly.

    When do you need French Drain

    Stop Water Pooling with a French Drain

    Installing a French drain is an effective interior waterproofing tactic. It involves digging a trench in the basement floor and laying a perforated pipe in it, covered with gravel or rocks.
    Instead of water accumulating on your basement floor, it’ll drain into the perforated pipes. The pipes then carry the water to a septic tank or other drain area.
    Contact us to arrange for a professionally installed French drain that prevents water from pooling in your basement and causing water damage. We can also install French drains outside your basement to effectively drain your yard and direct rainwater exactly where you want it to go.

    Types of Basement Leaks

    There are various causes for a basement leak in Toronto. Popular culprits are wall cracks, hydrostatic pressure, cove joints, and floor cracks.
    • Wall cracks can be caused by the house settling or shrinking, cement drying, and seismic activity. The presence of cracks can create entry points for water in the soil surrounding the basement.
    • Hydrostatic pressure is caused by water underneath your basement floor or wall pushing against the barrier until it breaks into your basement. We install a French drain to control such seepage by draining the water to a sump pump or outlet.
    • Cove joints are where the walls of your basement meet the floor. The point isn’t perfectly sealed, so water can leak into the basement from there. A French drain or other types of interior waterproofing are effective for controlling such basement leaks.
    • Floor cracks can force water from the ground into your basement. Such leaks can be caused by hydrostatic pressure or a burst pipe under the foundation.
    The right approach to fixing a basement leak will depend on the cause. By carefully assessing your basement leak, we can identify the best solution and stop it from reoccurring.
