    Wet basement is a complex problem

    After working in the area for 20 years, we know that wet basement issues are pretty common in Toronto. According to the Toronto officials website — the list of possible reasons for that includes:

    • Drainage failure;
    • Sewer clogging;
    • Heavy rainfalls;
    • Snow melting.

    The core reason is simple: basements are vulnerable to water’s adverse effects by design, rarely made to last over 15 years, and will inevitably leak — sooner or later.

    Waterproofing is the ultimate solution

    Even understanding the reasons, people still underestimate the consequences of a wet basement. It’s a major threat to multiple aspects of your life, even if it looks like a barely visible crack at first:

    • Your health, because of the toxic mold and its spores;
    • Your comfort, because of the smell and insects;
    • Your budget, because of the decreased home value and damaged belongings.

    Willfix experts are ready to commit and help you with any wet basement issues in Toronto, whether it’s an interior or exterior job, 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 Toronto

    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

    Why should I care about basement waterproofing in Toronto?

    The last thing you want is your basement to flood during the rainy season, which happens in Toronto every year. A flooded basement can be incredibly disruptive, not to mention the cost of repairing it. If you care about the health of your home and your possessions, then you should make sure that your Toronto home has a waterproofed basement.

    To really understand why you should care about waterproofing in Toronto, let’s look at what happens when a foundation isn’t solid enough to avoid leaks and water damage.

    1. First comes mold, which can cause a range of respiratory problems;
    2. Then there’s the mildew that can settle into drywall and permanently damage your home;
    3. You start feeling the smell of mold in other areas of your home;
    4. Your basement walls crack, and water enters through the walls to the inside;
    5. When you enter the basement to get rid of the damp spots — you notice that the population of insects is growing;
    6. Some of your belongings that you keep in the basement get damaged;
    7. You finally decide to fix it all, but a full-scale foundation repair is costly (even though it’s definitely effective);
    8. Finally, you want to sell your house, but the basement issue significantly decreases the price.

    That’s it. Now you either live in a dangerous place (with compromised foundation), pay a lot of money for a full-scale basement repair, or sell it with an extreme loss.

    All of it could be prevented with proper maintenance, some epoxy crack injections, and a simple, cost-effective waterproofing. That’s the worst case scenario that would take years of negligence, but it’s still totally possible. That’s why you should care about basement waterproofing.

    How to prevent basement water problems before they occur?

    Maintenance, attention, and waterproofing are the answer. In order to prevent basement water problems, you need to waterproof your basement walls. You can do this by:

    • Installing a french drain and covering the walls from the outside (exterior basement waterproofing);
    • Digging a drain and applying water-resistant materials to the inside of your basement walls to channel the water away (interior basement waterproofing);
    • Sealing all the cracks and making sure that your foundation’s structural soundness is not compromised (crack repair and foundation repair).

    Remember, waterproofing your basement is one of the best things you can do for your home. This will improve its overall condition, keep it smelling fresher longer and increase its resale value.

    All of it can be implemented in a DIY style, but it would never guarantee success, unless you’re a specialist yourself. Waterproofing is a complex process that requires experience, skills and a set of commercial-grade tools.

    My new home was waterproofed by the construction company just a few years ago, why do I have a wet basement?

    Have a look at your developer’s construction log to see if it in fact waterproofed your home while it was still under construction.

    Most importantly — look at the materials they’ve used. The market is full of cheap-grade “water-resistant” materials that simply don’t work or last a year or two. Did they use Delta membrane? Aqua-bloc? What was used for the french drain?

    The problem is either in cheap materials or in the construction team’s negligence and insufficient experience with waterproofing solutions.

    If you don’t have the log anymore or it doesn’t mention waterproofing your basement, then you need someone to come and check it. We have free estimation form for it. It could take a few hours or only a few minutes (depending on the issue), so don’t delay getting someone over for an inspection if you suspect that there might be a problem.

    Even if the original waterproofing is failed — you can call Willfix waterproofing team to fix it. It will cost less if the construction team had actually installed at least some parts of the system properly.
