"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.

Whether you are a home or business owner, we have the tools and experience to repair your basement leak. More importantly, we stand by the quality of our work, knowing the repairs will last for years to come. This commitment is why we are the only basement crack repair service that some people will ever use.

Types of Basement Leaks

Cove Joint Leak

A cove joint is where the floor meets the wall. If there is a leak inside the wall or excess rain, the groundwater along the juncture will rise. Eventually, the water seeps through the cove joint and into your basement. Experts refer to this phenomenon as hydrostatic pressure.
Due to the design, filling the cracks is not enough to fix a cove joint leak. Instead, waterproofers have to redirect the water. One option is to install an outside footer drain that relieves the underground water pressure. Another option is to insert an interior drain tile system to improve overall drainage.

Window Well Leak

If you see water trickling down your basement walls, there is a good chance you have a window well leak. Even light rain can expose problems in a poorly drained window well. Once the breach happens, it will continue to eat away at your home’s foundation until you fix it.
Installing a drain is the most effective way to fix a window well leak. It manages excess groundwater and properly drains it away from the foundation. A drain isn’t the only solution, though. You can also replace the basement windows, cover the window well, or swap out the gravel in the window well.

Floor Leak

Few basement problems are more daunting than water seeping through your floor. There are two possible culprits. The first is a burst pipe in your basement that causes flooding. The second is the water table rising, which typically happens after heavy rain or rapid snow melting.
As ominous as a small lake in your basement seems, a leaking floor crack is fixable. After removing the water, our waterproofers will install a perimeter floor drainage system. The drain collects water as it approaches the floor and diverts it to your sump pump.

Foundation Wall Leak

There are many reasons you may have a foundation wall leak. There could be a crack in your pipes or wall. Perhaps, the waterproofing cannot hold back the hydrostatic or lateral pressure outside the home. Fortunately, there are several ways to assuage these problems.
Sealing foundation wall cracks is an effective and permanent solution. The best sealants stick to the wall permanently, even as the wall expands and contracts over time. Waterproof wall panels are another long-lasting choice. They pull double duty as the panels keep out unwanted moisture while upgrading the look and value of your basement.

Sump Pump Leaks

The sump pump is the unsung hero of your basement. It is what keeps your foundation dry and free of mould and mildew. If there is a leak or other problem, the sump pump can no longer divert water away from your house. As a result, water can fill your basement.
The average sump pump lasts for ten years. If you notice a crack or uneven wear, address the problem immediately. In the best-case scenario, you will only have to replace a single part. If you put off the repair, you may end up paying north of $1,000 to replace the entire unit.

We Offer Free Onsite Estimates

If you have a basement leak, don’t wait. A single hole is likely the tip of the iceberg. The odds are it is a sign of more significant structural damage. Plus, the longer you wait to fix the problem, the more likely the leak is to compound or damage other materials.
MT Drains & Plumbing makes the repair process easy. Our professional waterproofers come to your home and provide a free onsite inspection with no strings attached. That way, you can understand the cause of the leak and how to fix it. Get started with your onsite estimate by calling us at (905) 761-5551 today.

I contacted MT Drains & Plumbing, they called me back immediately and gave me an estimated arrival time.They were extremely prompt. That really counts when you have a leak! Pavel and Eddie are very polite and tidy. They identified and fixed the source of the leak professionally.

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.

We called MT Drains and Plumbers to investigate water marks on our kitchen ceiling. We've called other plumbers before. They were happy to cut holes in the ceiling but couldn't determine where the water was coming from. Dickson arrived on time and quickly located the source of the leak which was from the shower in our master bedroom. He was very professional and personable. I would use MT Drains and Plumbers again.

We had a pipe leaking just before the water meter and main shut off. It was an emergency repair because we were unable to turn off the water to stop the leak. The company was extremely responsive, booked an appointment for the same afternoon and sent a follow up email to confirm. The plumber showed up on time and was very skilled and competent. Plumbing work was excellent. Billing practices less so. On viewing the pipe they quoted $600 to do the repair. I agreed because it was Friday afternoon at 2:30 and with a leak in progress didn't feel I had the luxury to shop around. Definitely felt gouged. The repair took 30 minutes and couldn't have used more than $50 in parts. Would definitely recommend for non emergency repairs when you can get competitive quote but would recommend caution for urgent repairs due to price gouging

MT Drains installed a water softener and water filter at my house. The install was quick and they showed me how to use the equipment. I like the fact they separated the waterline that I use to water my lawn so I don't pour softener water into the ground! The equipment is great and very quite. I hear a lot of people complain about the taste of the water comes out from the water filter, all I can say my kitchen filtered water tastes great and we drink it all the time. If you live north of the city I definitely recommend getting a water softener and filter! the difference is very noticeable!
