I have a 100yr old detached house with a concrete foundation in the Dundas/Coxwell area. We knew there had been water damage when we bought the house, but didn't realize the amount that had been coming in until a major rain a few weeks ago. After much investigation, we think that exterior waterproofing will be the best coarse of action. The perimeter of the house is roughly 125 ft. There is an ashphalt driveway on the south side, and a concrete path on the north. We need something with a good guarantee that is transferrable to the next owner, as we probably won't be in the house for more than 5 yrs or so.
We aren't in a big hurry to get the work done, but are looking for a good, reliable contrator with a good price. We have interviewed 5 contractors already, each of which has given us vastly different diagnosis and costs.
We look forward to hearing from any interested parties.
3 out of 4 sides were excavated and weeping tiles etc done in 2001. The third side is on a mutual drive and until now was not accessible for excavation. We require that full side plus approximately a 6 to 8 foot wrap around to be excavated and weeping tiles etc put in place. Total approximate length is 56 ft.
I have a sewage ejector pump and a sump pump in my basement. When it rains, water enters both the sewage pit as well as the sump pit. Both pumps work, but I don't like the fact that the water is entering the sewage pit because I don't have a back up for this pit.
I am looking for a pro who can explain to me why the water is getting into the sewage pit. Shouldn't all the water be going into the sump pit? How this issue can be resolved.
We are looking for a contractor for exterior waterproofing of our basement.
We have a bungalow with concrete block foundation and we have an issue with moisture and water in the basement. Water is leaking through walls in couple of places in one room and in another room walls and floor are dry by there are some old traces of water leakage. Total length that needs to be waterproofed is 75 feet; depth is 5 feet. There isn't a lot of space around the house but I assume that a bobcat will fit in.
Please respond with ballpark price and timing when you are available. We would prefer to start asap.

We live in an older home (from the 1940s). We've never had any obvious water problems in the basement, but while refinishing a room below grade, we found some dampness and efflorescence on the interior foundation wall (poured concrete, I think). There is a sump pump that I believe is attached to a French drain system.
Looking for someone to ensure the perimeter drain is still functioning well and not clogged, and to advise re: making the basement drier when we refinish it. (Need for interior drainage system vs. patching and sealing).
(a) The water is shut off for the residential property (located near Airport and Morning Star intersection in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada), since it gushes out of one of the broken (either, due to vandalism or freezing) garden hose taps in the fenced yard.
There is also a crack in the wall adjacent to it, near the basement entrance.
Currently, we do not know whether there is also a foundation-crack, and-or the connecting pipe (for the garden-hose tap in the yard) is broken within the basement wall.
(b) Furthermore, we want to ensure that the basement washer is operational.
(c) Also, there may be other required repair work for:
(i) electrical, (ii) (possible) foundation-crack, (iii) broken-step at entrance.
2) For any repair work, we REQUIRE from a reputable trades-person: a "CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE" (with a current business card), a Licensed and Insured Plumber/ trades-person, a Written estimate of work, Pay with a cheque and get a Legally Valid Receipt, with a Written Warranty for performed work.
3) A "Release from Liability" waiver needs to be signed BEFORE the contractor steps on our property (noting the name of the signer, from a government issued ID, such as a Drivers License), as advised by police and legal counsel.
4) Let us know if you provide a Free Estimate of work (at NO obligation to us), or if there is a charge for coming in-person, to give us an estimate.
NOTE: This is an Inquiry for Information at NO obligation to us. It is NOT an "Order for Service". Accordingly, we do NOT incur ANY contractual obligation, nor do we agree to reimburse for any performed services, UNTIL we hire the contractor, and services are ACTUALLY performed by the hired trades-person.
I need to have the porch waterproofed. I tried the internal waterproofing using on the wall cement based compound, now it looks like external waterproofing is required. Porch drawing isclick here right side has concrete, left and front sides have just the soil. In the centre there are stairs - they can be skipped, as that area doesn't leak (if it doesn't contradict your recommendation).
Thank you for providing your quote.
We're renovating our basement and are looking for assistance with a handful of items:
1. Interior door. Our basement is comprised of two separate sections each of which has its own staircase. The two sections are "connected" visa-a-vis a small carved out section of a retaining wall (18" to 30" wide x 60" tall). Note that there's no lintel above this "carved out section" We'd like to make this into a formal doorway and need a lintel and posts (if required by the building code).
2. Basement window. We're looking at adding an above grade basement window approximately 5' to 6' wide x. 3' x 4' tall. We have a brick foundation; our driveway extends well past this section so there's easy access to the location.
3. Basement waterproofing (possibly). Looking at approximately 40' around our backyard deck. Easy access as the driveway is right next to the patio. Only difficulty could be a large walnut tree on the other side that has a well developed root system.
We have an area between our house and the neighbours that is quite tight. The older part of the foundation (below brick, above ground) is allowing water to travel inside the house. Access to the space is very limited but not at all impossible to access. We need the area to be either A) parged, with a little concrete work at the base done in order to have water directed towards a drain or B) need to have some foam / siding / flashing installed in order to shield and redirect whatever water might reach that area, in addition to the light grading at the base.
Again, the space is tight but there was still enough room to allow the neighbour to stucco his side of the house in that area.
I'm open and welcome to other solutions, of course but these two options made the most sense to me.
Beach's home, approx 75 years old.
1. Front pillar/column at porch, need to repair surface damage to bricks from water freezing. Column is strong currently, but needs the outer surface repaired and sealed. 2. The front soffet damaged with some rotting, this needs to be replaced. New eave and downspout needed also.
3. Would also like to get basement waterproofed from the outside. Total basement waterproofing is approximately 30 linear feet along a TTC chain link fence, a paved walkway runs the length of the side of house. Approx 10 linear feet is in back. Backyard has a porch, work can be done underneath porch, just need to remove some of the wood to gain access to wall. you have access to back yard from a shared laneway with a private yard and parking area. Approx 40 linear feet in total needs to be done.
Interested in an online estimate first and go from there.
There is a moisture problem in one area of the basement that is recurring. On the outside of the house, this is in the backyard where there are two windows at ground level with window wells. The outside around the window wells is concrete.
I would like to fix the wall so that moisture stops coming in. The room has been gutted as mold had previously appeared, it looks as though it is returning.
Dig along the 30 ft wall to foundation footing. Inspect and patch where needed with cement.
Pour a 2' run of cement along the footing and place weeping tile. (Drain is already provided)
Sealproof the side before burying. ( maybe petroleum base and plastic )
Provide some barrier to prevent neighbor's ground water from draining into my land. Or Rplace the sand & stone
top with a clayey material to allow time for drainage.
Parge (3/4 " min) 4 ft strip along the length.
( will consider advice )
Replace some red bricks and tuckpoint some areas.
Lift chimney (6 ft showing x 16" x 16") another 2 ftt (or replace it with newer bricks.)
Hello, I require work done that involves
-demoing and removing front concrete steps
-exterior waterproofing (approximately 30 linear feet, hand digging required, 5' to the footing)
-install a sump pump in laundry room
-tuck pointing and parging in some areas
-small concrete pad for new staircase, and small walkway
My home is a condo stacked townhouse, and my unit is on the 3rd and 4th floor. Both of them are CONCRETE floors.
We have a balcony on each floor, and both have been having this water problem since we moved in 10 years ago, at least twice a year. It usually happens after a heavy rain or when there is accumulated snow. The water seeps underneath the door into the room.
A contractor hired by our property management did waterproofing with asphalt felt seven years ago, but did not fix the problem.
We are tired of begging them, and feel it might be possible to fix it from inside than just from outside. So we decided to hire somebody and pay ourselves this time.
Please note: both balconies are shared with another unit, which might be a challenge.
House age= 80 years old
Wall Measure= 12 wide x 30 deep
There is only 4 feet between neighbor's wall
I ripped out the dry wall in the basement and noticed mold and moisture. It's brick wall foundation approx 4 feet undergroud. I suspect i need to properly wather proof from outside. There is a deck over the front and back. New weeping tile is likely needed. Finished basement (minus the drywall I ripped out). Not sure if it can be fixed from the inside. Cash payment an option
I live in a newer home about 5 years old. Approx 1 year ago, I had a contractor removed the existing porch roof in order to and install an oval glass porch enclosure. When the existing porch roof was removed, there were no stones behind there. Therefore, I called a stone/brick layer to fill in the gap. After the stones were installed, the oval porch enclosure was installed. This is the issue now!!!!!.... Whenever it rains or when the snow melts my house is now leaking water inside the porch enclosre, water is seaping from inbetween the frame of the front door and water is driping into the cold room located in the basement. I believe that the water is seaping through the exterior stone above the porch enclosure causing the water issues. I am lookingfor a free assessment, no obligation quote from a contractor who is insured, certified and provides a warranty on their work. Thank You.
My basement is leaking through on half of one side of the house. the walls require downspouts to be moved and it requires either interior or exterior waterproofing. As some water is accumulating (and then evaporating) in the basement, it would be good to deal with this sooner rather than later. Earlier patching had been effective, but the large volume of rain has eroded this.
THE PROJECT HAS BEEN CONTRACTED
I also have some other renovations that are needed with less time pressure and would like to discuss these. These include:
1) a snow shelter for back basement stairs,
2) the replacement of two back doors and
3) the eventual bolstering of the front porch.
Happy to look at a package for a good contracter.
Basement issue is first.
I need exterior waterproofing the wall it about 26ft long , and there is A/C there , and the floor is large concerte slab you might need to cut it to dig to the footing
I live around Jane/lawerence in toronto. I'm looking for contractors who does only waterproofing
how much does it cost me ?
My wife and I purchased a newly renovated older home in the Beaches area last June. Recently, we have noticed peeling paint in the attic and in one of the upper bedrooms, as well as discolouration on our kitchen ceiling. We suspect a leak, either from the roof or from the windows. We also do not believe the flashing around our windows was done properly as many of our window sills are bowing.
We are looking for estimates including an assessment of the cause of the problem, a proposal for a solution and the expected cost of implementation.
