Watertite is an incredible company. There work was done right, on time and with no issue. What a breeze to work with them. Kind, understanding and great attention to detail. From the sales team to the foreman to the workers. A . I have used many trades in my life and I would highly recommend Watertite to anyone!
I’m very pleased with the job Watertite did waterproofing the entire foundation of my 70+ year old home last fall. Rino provided a prompt and very detailed estimate after my initial contact. It covered the entire scope of the work to be done and quoted a very competitive price. His crew started and completed the work on time as scheduled. They worked hard each day, ensured the neighbour’s property was well protected, and kept the site tidy and safe and the end of each day. When the foundation waterproofing was completed they did a good job restoring the portions of my interlock driveway and back patio that were disturbed by the work. There was minimal damage to my soft landscaping which was easily repaired this spring.
We had a good amount of snow, freezing and thawing this winter which normally would result in little rivulets of water running into my basement. This year the basement was completely dry for the first time since I moved here thanks to Watertite.
We recently bought an older home that had signs of water leakage and moisture in the basement. We hired Watertite to replace the old weeping tile with a new drainage system, repair water damage to the exterior foundation walls and waterproof them.
Watertite completed the job on time and within our budget. Their staff were professional and friendly. Six months later, we are very happy with the results. We would highly recommend Watertite.
This is the second time I have sought the help of Rino, Barry and the team at Watertite. Great work, tidy, thorough and fast. My go-to company for anything related to my basement and water issues, but hoping not to have to call again!
Thank you for this great endorsement Mary!
It’s always nice to hear from a repeat customer. We are happy that you were so satisfied with our work the first time that you did not hesitate to call us when you had a new issue. Glad to help both times. All the best!
A crew of 6 to 8 men worked on the project. They were incredibly hard-working, and the job went faster than I expected. At the end of the project, they left my property looking better than when they started. Based on this experience I would not hesitate to use them again.
Hi Gerry, thank you very much for your wonderful words, Watertite and our team appreciate them! It was nice to hear that you are very satisfied with the timeframe that the job was completed and the condition your home was left in. We always try to complete jobs in a timely matter and are constantly respectful of the homeowner’s property. Once again thank you for taking the time to write this review. Have a great day!
Recommend by a friend. Great job, professional staff. Work completed on time and at agreed price. Very satisfied.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are so happy that you were satisfied with the work at your home. Please do not hesitate to call should you further require our services!
Watertite sent out a whole crew of people to do, very quickly, a job that would have taken a lot longer than it did. The workmen were polite, knowledgeable and extremely neat. Every night when they went home the outside of the house was swept and tidied up. As will happen with a very old house, once they started to dig there were several surprises (not good ones), which were dealt with swiftly and efficiently. I highly recommend Watertite Waterproofers.
Thank you so much for this wonderful review Karima. You are absolutely correct in that there are sometimes surprises when excavating an older home. Our goal is to identify the problem, offer a speedy and cost effective solution and execute it in a timely manner. We are glad we met your expectations.
We had a great experience working with Watertite. Right from our first meeting with Rino, he took the time to provide a detailed explanation of the problems we were facing and the options. When we faced some unexpected issues with previous work that had been completed by another contractor, the Watertite team worked quickly to come up with a solution. The team was friendly, through and left things looking great.
Hi Eric, thank you for taking the time to write this review it is appreciated. From time to time we do run into situations where additional work is required. Our aim is to present the homeowner with the quickest and most cost effective solution. We are delighted that you were happy with our service.
We are very pleased and satisfied with the waterproof work done around our house by the Watertite team. I have chosen this company over other companies based on: a) Rino(estimator) came across very trustworthy and sincere b) their waterproof method(digging by hand and not by machine) c) they don't use subcons e) reasonable price f) they would work on site (weather permitting) every day until they were done. The whole project went very smoothy. The site supervisor, Barrie, was very easy to talk to and communited any issues that came up. The team was diligent in their work, respectful, they were pleasant to deal with, they were great at cleaning and protecting the site everyday before they left for the day. They also did a few extra things for us that wasn't part of the quote with no additional charge; which we were super appreciative about. We had a very positive experience with this company. They were professional from beginning to end. I highly recommend Watertite Waterproofers with no hesitation. They are an excellent company!
Wow Su, what an amazing review! We are so pleased to see that you were so very satisfied with our service that you took the time to write about your experience in such detail. Thank you so very much and if there is ever anything we can further do for you please don’t hesitate to let us know.
Although dealing with the obvious surface issues such as downpipes, eavestrough's, window wells, grading etc., are the first steps recommended and the ones which are most commonly used, these only mask the symptoms temporarily rather than dealing with the root of the problem. Common sense dictates that you never want water ponding or pooling on the surface against the outside walls, but if it did, it shouldn't end up in your basement. If water or excessive dampness is entering through your basement foundation walls or at the footing level, then you have a serious foundation problem. Foundation waterproofing and restoration of your walls below grade with the installation of a new weeping tile system is really your only proper and long-term solution.
Please remember that unlike in previous generations, basements are now being used as living space rather than just storage or utility space. Basements have become an integral part of homes as they provide much needed and relatively affordable living space unlike additions, which can be cost prohibitive. Therefore, steps need to be taken in order to protect your basement environment as you would the upper floors of your home, should it have a leaky roof. Keep in mind, foundations are what support a house and are vital to its structural integrity.
Unfortunately they have long been neglected, as it was accepted that the basement was a dark, gloomy and musty place. Fortunately, with today's innovative building materials and advanced waterproofing systems, Watertite can offer homeowners a dry basement that will protect your existing finished space or allow you to safely create new living space such as a playroom, office or recreation room without the fear that your new finishes will be water damaged and potentially ruined by mould. Waterproofing your home will give you piece of mind knowing that you have a dry, healthy, livable basement area and at the same time you have extended the longevity and integrity of your foundation walls for many years to come.
Call Watertite for a free consultation before you decide to finish your basement area or if you are experiencing any of the symptoms as outlined in our Do I have a problem section, within your existing finished basement.
