    Wet basement is a complex problem

    Wet and leaky basements are common in Scarborough and the surrounding areas. Over 40% of homes are vulnerable to the degrading effects of the groundwaters, and even more buildings tend to leak every 15-20 years.

    • Stormwater management;
    • Heavy rainfalls and melting snow;
    • Old houses with vulnerable foundation structures.

    Even though the city services keep the issue under control — for many, wet and leaky basements still cause discomfort.

    Waterproofing is the ultimate solution

    All the seemingly harmless at first wet basement issues tend to get worse over time, turning into a threat to your health, your home’s structure, and your budget:

    • Moldy smell, allergies, and respiratory issues;
    • Leaks that create comfortable damp places for insects;
    • Foundation cracks and slits that compromise the foundation.

    Willfix experts are ready to commit and help you with any basement waterproofing job in Scarborough, whether it’s an interior or exterior solution, or just a crack repair.

    Customer-oriented approach

    Get the solution that suits your unique case. From crack injections to exterior basement waterproofing — we’ll find and implement the best technology for your unique situation.

    We treat every basement like our own

    We understand the struggles a wet basement or a leak may cause. In all our projects, we aim at the same targets as you do: to solve the problem fast, keep the solution efficient, with the technology you can trust.

    Exterior Basement Waterproofing

    Exterior basement waterproofing is the way to protect your foundation from the outside. We expose the basement walls, cover them with multiple extra waterproof material layers, and install a new drainage system.

    No water damage — the water just can’t reach the walls;

    Dry and comfortable basement — uninhabitable for mold or insects;

    Increased foundation safety — with every crack sealed in the process.

    Willfix experts use the best available materials, such as AquaBloc membrane, to protect your basement from the water’s degrading effects.

    Interior Basement Waterproofing

    Interior basement waterproofing does not stop water, but channels it away from your foundation walls. The drainage system and the weeping tile are installed inside your basement and sealed with high-quality concrete, so no leaks will ever occur where they shouldn’t.

    No excavation needed — all the works are on the inside of your house;

    Cost-efficient and reliable solution — with the system that you can control;

    Get the results faster with no quality loss — and the same 25 years warranty.

    Depending on your foundation structure, we might need to release the excess water from the hollow walls or install a sump pump. Our experts will offer you the best solution for your case.

    Foundation Repair

    Every foundation has its expiration date. Most of them tend to leak every 10-15 years because of Toronto’s climate and rainfalls. Willfix’s team of professionals can help you identify the issue and eliminate any problems with the foundation’s structure — even in the toughest cases.

    Sealing the walls and joints — so no cracks lead to leaks and water seepage;

    Increased foundation soundness — the guaranteed result of the repair;

    Only top-quality materials are used — to be proactive and prevent any future problems.

    Foundation repair is vital every 10-15 years. Microcracks are barely notable at first sight but may quickly lead to a dangerous increase in humidity and toxic mold growth.

    Basement crack repair

    Every tiny crack has big potential — and it can grow faster than you expect. In 20 years of experience, the Willfix team has seen all types of basement cracks, from the tiniest to enormous ½ inch slits. We’re ready to offer the best solution to each type of them:

    Foundation crack repair — to ensure that water will never leak through to the inside;

    Concrete crack repair — we’ll fix the problem with commercial-grade hydraulic cement;

    Epoxy crack injection — so the leak is 100% sealed, with no damp basement issues.

    It might be a temporary solution or a sufficient repair to restore your basement structure's main functions — safely supporting the house and keeping the water out.

    Basement Underpinning

    Lowering the floor of your basement with no loss in structural soundness and no plumbing or waterproofing issues might be a challenging task, but Willfix experts are ready to commit. Our team has a certified engineer to help you with the drawings, all the tech, and necessary permits.

    Increase your property price by adding a fully functional, safe, and dry extra level;

    Make your basement a comfortable place not just to store things, but to live as well;

    Improvement of both the foundation structure and the exterior look of your house.

    Basement underpinning requires more specialized tools, machinery, and skilled work than waterproofing, but the final result is probably the best that can happen to your home.

    Why You Need Basement Waterproofing in Scarborough

    No basement is safe from constant water exposure’s degrading and eroding effects. A wet basement is a full-scale health concern that elevates the risks for you and your family. Interior basement waterproofing is your effective line of defense against multiple enemies:

    Insects

    A whole spectrum of insects can inhabit your basement if it has excessive moisture and darkness:

    • Earwigs (Dermaptera);
    • Centipedes (Chilopoda);
    • Millipedes (Diplopoda);

    Some insects may spread diseases, and we doubt you’ll feel comfortable sharing a house with them.

    Mold

    Mold is extremely fast-spreading: it may occur in 24-48 hours in the moist area:

    • Dark-looking brown mold (Stachybotrys);
    • Lighter-looking dry mold (Aspergillus);
    • Black mold (Stachybotrys);

    There’s nothing good about having mold in your house. The spores easily spread throughout the house and can lead to health issues, like allergies or infections.

    Allergies

    “Basement allergy” can be both barely notable and extremely uncomfortable for you:

    • Running nose, sneezing, coughing;
    • Centipedes (Chilopoda);
    • Headache, anaphylaxis, troubled breathing;

    A wet basement can be both a trigger for someone’s allergic reaction and the reason for allergy development.

    We treat every basement like our own — with the utmost care and highest quality as our top priority

    Basement waterproofing is an effective way to increase your comfort while making your basement uninhabitable for bugs or fungus.

    FAQ

    Should I Waterproof My Basement in Scarborough?

    The question of whether to waterproof your basement in Scarborough is a common one. Periodic flooding renders the basement unusable. The degrading effects of groundwater are inevitable. It’s just how soil and water work.

    You cannot control water, but you can manage it.

    Many households have basements with moisture issues. Moisture builds up inside the basement and comes into contact with brick walls and dirt floors. The build-up creates a breeding ground for mold and musty smells that inevitably make their way upstairs.

    The whole floor and crawl spaces are prone to mold growth because of excess moisture. If not addressed, mold will continually grow and create a very unhealthy space for your family. A wet basement in Scarborough will cause the overall structure to crack and crumble because of structural damage.

    Professional waterproofing of your basement in Scarborough should be done sooner than later.

    A moisture problem will only get worse as time passes. A basement with water damage may deteriorate the foundation of your home. Be proactive, preventing damage to your home is the best way to save money.

    When is it Time to Consider Basement Waterproofing?

    When construction workers build a basement, it’s best to waterproof it at that moment — from the start. It would prevent any damage that might occur when the concrete is poured, and it will protect it from rainwater that comes into contact with it.

    Unfortunately, not all basements are waterproofed at the construction stage. Here are some indications that water is slowly entering your basement.

    Water Stains: If you notice water stains on the ceilings, walls, or floor after heavy rain, there is a flooding issue. This may be an isolated incident. However, if this occurs every time it rains, you’ll need to get a team in to check your basement for any cracks or openings in the foundation.

    Unwanted Smells: Are you experiencing musty smells or funky odors? The excess moisture in the basement causes this. Mold, mildew, and bacteria likely grow under these conditions. You may have some damage to the basement walls, floor, or ceilings.

    Efflorescence (White Sparkles): The reason for it is a combination of salts, water, and limestone. If this gets on your walls or floors, it might be infected with water damage. It happens due to the humidity in the basement. If you see this, you should call a residential waterproofing company.

    Is basement waterproofing expensive?

    It can be expensive if you were doing it by yourself and using the cheapest materials from the store. You may save money now, but in the long run — you waste both time and money. The consequences may transpire in 2 or 3 years, but if you see a new leak or a new major crack in your basement — you’ll know that saving on professional help might’ve been a mistake.
