    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 Richmond HillTrusted 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.

    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.

    Oftentimes, the external ground around your home and the soil under the house will naturally erode over the years. This is caused by water saturation from weather conditions or other external sources of water and it will eat away at the home’s foundation causing major structural damage over time. Putting up a waterproofing barrier will ensure this erosion is brought to a halt.

    Basement windows can serve as a much-needed light source in a basement but also as a means by which water can seeps into your basement. Basement windows are the typical entry point for water to get into your basement. Sealing them may not be enough, so an extra step to take is installing a Window Well to make sure that any water that is getting in will have a proper drainage channel to get out.

    Internal waterproofing service is a pretty simple concept. First and foremost, it entails digging a trench from within your basement. This trench should run directly alongside the problematic space. Once the trench has been dug, drainage system insertion starts.

    The purpose of this system is to guide water accumulation over to ways out of the home. Concrete is then poured in order to close the trench. This provides property owners with the promise of basements that are perfectly dry and comfortable.

    Plumbers rely on internal sealants as a means of stopping additional water escape, preventing potential water damage. These kinds of sealants are not necessarily effective in stopping leaks for good. They can be useful for the sealing of conspicuous cracks that are present on floors, ceilings and walls.

    Note that weeping tiles and French drains are both typical sights in the internal waterproofing world.

    Internal basement waterproofing in Vaughan can be beneficial for many households. It doesn’t negatively influence outdoor surroundings in any manner, and it safeguards basements of all kinds from the hazards of the outdoors, too. It minimizes hydrostatic pressure while being remarkably budget-friendly.

    The difference between internal and external waterproofing is that internal waterproofing seeks to waterproof your basement walls from the inside and includes the installation of a internal drainage system to redirect water away from your homes foundation. This also includes the installation of sump pumps which seek to divert water that has made it into your basement away to prevent water damage and mitigate risk of mold forming.

    External waterproofing on the other hand brings the waterproofing process to the outside of your foundation and is considered to be the best solution in-regards to protecting your basement foundation, but in certain applications is not possible, due to a list of potential factors. Our waterproofing contractors can advise you on the best course of action to stop your basement walls from leaking.

    There are several potential causes of a wet carpet in a basement in Toronto. Some of the most common include:

    1. Leaky pipes: A leak in the plumbing system can cause water to seep into the basement and cause a wet carpet.

    2. Flooding: Heavy rain or snowfall can cause water to seep into the basement through cracks in the foundation or through window wells.

    3. High humidity: High humidity levels in the basement can lead to condensation on surfaces, which can cause a wet carpet.

    4. Clogged or malfunctioning sump pump: A sump pump is used to remove water that has accumulated in the basement. If it is clogged or not working properly, it can cause water to buildup and create a wet carpet.

    5. Improperly installed or maintained drainage: Improperly installed or maintained drainage systems can cause water to collect around the foundation and seep into the basement, creating a wet carpet.

    6. Improperly installed or maintained window wells.

    It is important to identify the cause of the wet carpet and take appropriate action to fix the problem. It’s better to seek professional help in order to find out the source and prevent any further damage.
