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:
A whole spectrum of insects can inhabit your basement if it has excessive moisture and darkness:
Some insects may spread diseases, and we doubt you’ll feel comfortable sharing a house with them.
Mold is extremely fast-spreading: it may occur in 24-48 hours in the moist area:
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.
“Basement allergy” can be both barely notable and extremely uncomfortable for you:
A wet basement can be both a trigger for someone’s allergic reaction and the reason for allergy development.
In the last 20 years, we performed over a thousand projects all across Toronto. We’re proud of our reputation and always appreciate the kind words from satisfied clients:
Three processes can solve the problem and ensure your basement’s dryness and safety:
Interior basement waterproofing is a combination of the three best approaches. None of the factors would work alone, but together — they create a powerful synergy that protects your basement from any leaks from the inside.
Interior basement waterproofing is sometimes called “negative side waterproofing” or “basement water management” because the main aim of the work is channeling the water away from your foundation, not blocking it completely. As the result, you get a comfortable and dry basement.
WillFix experts will protect your basement from the inside in 7 steps. Here is how we do it:
The water does not magically teleport from the soil to the inside of your basement. It makes its way through cracks and joints (where the walls connect to the floor). We seal all the vulnerable areas with top-quality hydraulic cement
The basement floor along the walls gets carefully removed to create a narrow trench, deep enough to fit the system. No worries about the foundation: the process is safe for your home’s integrity and the structure itself is not affected.
Weeping tile is the best way to redirect the water from the area it can damage. In simple terms, a weeping tile will act as a channel for the water to flow away from the walls. It’s the best solution to the hydrostatic pressure on the market.
All the excess water should go somewhere, so we connect the weeping tile perimeter and install the sump pump: the system that will collect the water safely and discharge it away from your house.
We apply the AquaBloc membrane to the walls and cover the weeping tile with a layer of gravel to be 100% sure: all the water goes to the drainage system and ends up in the sump pump, as intended.
We check the system again and cover the trench with concrete to get your basement floor back to its original level. Along with sealing the cracks, it improves your home’s foundation soundness and makes it not just dry, but safe as well.
Before the team leaves, we clean up all the mess, get rid of all the debris and dust, and make sure that your basement has its original look. By the time Willfix experts leave, you’ll have a clean and perfectly waterproofed basement.
Forget what wet basement looks and smells like and rest assured that you're covered. In the next quarter of a century you'll either have no basement waterproofing problems or we'll come and fix it for free.

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.
Basement waterproofing prevents the moisture, usually caused by a leak in the foundation, from seeping through and damaging your home’s interior. Basement waterproofing is a process that includes placing a layer of waterproof materials between the walls of your basement and the soil, if it’s an exterior solution, and creating a drainage system along your basement walls on the interior, if it’s interior waterproofing.
This way, even if water manages to leak into your basement, there will be as little contact between it and anything else as possible. If a substantial amount of water tends to breach basement waterproofing, the structure is designed to allow it to drain without contacting anything within.
Yes, basement waterproofing increases your home value. While there’s no hard data to back the numbers, it may add several thousand dollars to the price of your house. It’s defined by simple calculations:
In the majority of cases, you can expect your ROI (return on investment) to be about 30%. Especially when the warranty is tied to the property — not you as the waterproofing client, and it will transfer to the next owner. That’s exactly how it works with Willfix.
A basement that has been properly waterproofed is supposed to be dry, have no uncomfortable smell, and would look similar to what construction workers call “clean, dry, and undamaged,” — meaning the walls are dry and solidly intact.
If you have a damp basement or your concrete walls are soft and crumbly (these are the most common properties of wet concrete) your home probably needs waterproofing. Other common signs would be mold, moldy smell, or damp spots.
In theory, a waterproofing failure would result in significant damage to the foundation structure and require professional plumbing and construction help. It can cause considerable damage to the walls and may require complete reconstruction.
We say “in theory” because it’s an extremely rare outcome that ostly happens when people try to waterproof their basements with DIY kits from the store, with no skills or experience.
In 20 years of work, Willfix experts had no failures with any of more than a thousand projects. Our team has no members with less than 10 years of personal experience, and we treat every basement with utmost care. We also provide a 25 years warranty on our basement waterproofing services, and have all the insurance on hands.
Yes, waterproofing is covered by warranty, but only when it’s done by a certified company. The typical warranty for waterproofing is about 10-15 years, but that’s something that you should ask your waterproofing contractor about. We at Willfix keep our quality standards high, so our warranty is extended to 25 years.
While it’s an effective way to prevent your basement from leaking, it’s not always the most efficient one. Depending on the case, you might need other services. Some of them may solve your problem faster and for a more fair price. Willfix team has enough experience and is ready to help anyway.
Exterior (and commonly called “external”) basement waterproofing is the way to protect your basement from the outside, so the water does not make it to the inner side of your basement walls at all. It’s a time-tested and reliable solution that the majority of our clients prefer.
Exterior basement waterproofing might be a better option when:
The Willfix team has over 20 years of experience in exterior basement waterproofing and we’re ready to commit.
You can’t waterproof a foundation that has long exceeded its purpose. Increased humidity, cracks and leaks are major red flags. Even a tiny foundation crack is a threat not just to your comfort, but to your home's safety as well.
You need foundation crack repair in case:
We have been helping Toronto residents to fix their basements for over 20 years now and have all the necessary certifications for it.
Concrete in your basement walls was never made to last for ages and withstand the immense water pressure from the soil. The walls bend and bow, deform and lose the structural soundness. The best way to fix the issue is to repair the damaged area.
The Willfix team has over 20 years of experience in concrete crack repairs. We know how to do it right:
A concrete crack repair is never the final solution because it doesn’t protect your walls from the groundwater’s degrading effects, but it’s enough to restore your foundation’s original structure.
Concrete forming allows you to build brand new structures for any of your project needs. Our experts can accomplish residential and commercial projects regardless of the complexity of the task:
The Willfix team has more than 20 years of experience and we guarantee that only the best materials and machinery will be used in your concrete forming project.
Basement cracks are relatively harmless when small, but the frequent rainfalls, snowy winters, and sometimes — extreme temperature changes can make a small crack expand dramatically overnight.
For every basement crack repair, whether the crack is around the window frame, on the floor, or on the wall — we have a professional solution:
The only unchanging aspect is the result: you get your problem fixed with no chances for it to appear ever again.
Epoxy crack injection is the fastest and the least expensive way to fix a crack in your basement. It’s one of the most popular wet basement repair methods, but it won’t work with cracks that already leak — only with the ones that are potentially dangerous.
Epoxy crack injection is the perfect option for basement repair when:
Willfix professionals use only high-quality epoxy with commercial-grade ports that leave no chances to the tiniest hollow spots in your basement walls.
When you need to enlarge your living space or make your basement more comfortable — you need floor lowering, not waterproofing. We have a certified engineer to do the drawings and a team of professionals to help you with basement underpinning.
Basement underpinning has multiple benefits:
Willfix has over two decades in lowering basement floors in Toronto. We can add extra 2 feet of height to your basement to make it a truly comfortable and functional area.
Willfix experts are familiar with the specifics of the Great Toronto Area and have enough experience to deal with any basement waterproofing job in any city. We know that snowy winters, frequent rainfalls, and groundwater management issues are equally damaging to basements and foundation walls of people in all communities.
