My house is 50 plus years old and I learned from internet that over a period of time, cemented walls and foundations will soon crack that will cause basement flooding. This alerted my concerns and had planned to do basement waterproofing. Before executing my plan, I studied and learned about interior and exterior waterproofing. I learned about signs and causes of basement flooding. I concentrated on exterior waterproofing which the best plan suited for my case. I saw and listened videos on the steps and process in basement waterproofing. I am a cautious and conscientious homeowner. To avoid being taken advantage as there are many contractors that take advantage of ignorant and innocent homeowner, I did my research and learn the work to be done, the materials being used and contacted at least 5 contractors. When you do your own research, you'll be able to follow and understand what the contractors are talking about. I got these 5 contractors quotes and analysed and compared them, which quotes are comparatively the same. I had chosen a contractor that will do everything that I wanted to be done, and that was Canada Waterproofers. Not only they quoted me reasonable price but also willing to do other stuffs such as replacing the 3-year old sump pump with a back-up battery. They also installed a trench drain and new catch basin in the end of my driveway as it is slopping down from the street level that cause water puddles & flooding. They also fix my dryer vent which have been almost at the ground level. During winter, fallen snow would blocked this dryer vent. Canada Waterproofer installed PVC pipe extending upward, elevating the dryer vent one foot height. All these works were done in 5 days. Basement waterproofing was manually done, hand-digging around the perimeter of my house due to gas pipe line. I am very satisfied and happy of the work done. I would not hesitate to recommend this company for waterproofing and other plumbing work. The team of Carl and Stewart did an excellent job. I would be proud to highly recommend them.

I invited 3 companies on site to inspect the property, assess what was needed to stop water leaking into the basement and to provide an estimate. Two of the companies did not provide a satisfactory remedial plans. Carl McDowell of Canada Waterproofers had excellent knowledge of waterproofing and very practical solutions to the problem. Carl was a pleasure to deal with from the first site meeting to signing off the job at its conclusion. He was patient and clear in all his explanations, and in many respects went above and beyond expectations. His crew was efficient and thorough in their workmanship and their follow-through in terms of finishing details and clean-up. The restoration work was superbly done. Carl was always accessible and helped me complete the City of Toronto flood subsidy forms. I had excellent experience and would highly recommend Carl.

We recently completely gutted and renovated a 110 year old home. One of the projects that had to be completed was basement underpinning and Waterproofing - one of the back additions of the house did not have sufficient foundation. We had 3 contractors quote on the job and by far Carl and the team at Canada Waterproofers were the most responsive and professional. The crew that completed the work were fantastic - there was nothing easy about the job - the soil in our area is like clay but they got the job done, and very well done, in 3.5 weeks. The basement is dry and the house didn’t budge even 1 cm from the underpinning. Of all the contractors we’ve had in our house in the past year, Canada Waterproofers is one of the best. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to waterproof or underpin.

I had leak in my basement about two months ago and contacted several companies for an estimate. Carl, a representative from Canada waterproofers, came by within a few hours. Carl was very helpful, professional, and knowledgeable, and gave me the most competitive price and reasonable start date. He was also very quick in answering my phone calls/text messages and stayed within the quoted price.
The staff was extremely efficient, skilled, and courteous. They completed the job within the estimated time. They also did a great job in cleaning up after the work was completed.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Canada waterproofers and I highly recommend it.

For years I had dreaded the thought that I needed to have my entire foundation waterproofed. Not only the enormity of the job but We also have a lovely back porch made of wood, which we enjoy and did not want to loose.

I had four quotes, but little confidence in the people who had quoted. I looked on Home Stars and found Canada Waterproofers. I contacted them for a quote.

Slava Koval came to quote the job. I was immediately impressed with him and his knowledge. He explained, he spent many years doing the actual digging and sealing himself. I could tell he knew his trade well. We agreed on the start date.

On the agreed date, Slava and his team arrived. Without delay the men put their heads down and dug, and I mean dug, there was not enough room for any machinery. I could not believe how hard his team worked. They took the time and actually dug under our back porch.

In five days they completed what I saw as an insurmountable task. I would highly recommend Canada Waterproofers and Slav Koval to anyone who asked. Thanks Slava.

Canada Waterproofers was the 4th company to come by our place to assess leaking in our basement. The previous visitors had suggested it might be a problem with our drains or foundation, both of which would entail costly repairs. After hearing my background of what we knew so far, in just minutes, Slava identified the real source of the problem, shining a flashlight into our furnace room and pointing out what no one else had noticed, that our furnace was leaking! When I was stunned at how quickly he'd figured it out, Slava mentioned that before he even knocked on the door, he'd looked at how close our gutters are to our neighbours' gutters and decided that water getting to the foundations was an unlikely cause of our problem, and so he was already investigating other possible sources. He also pointed out a tiny particle floating in the water, running west along the back wall toward my closet (where I'd thought the leak was). It was so clever and efficient that it reminded me of Sherlock Holmes explaining how he solved a mystery! I asked him how much we owed him and he laughed and said it was our free assessment. Wow! I would definitely call Canada Waterproofers if I ever needed waterproofing in the future, or recommend them to anyone else who needed it.

After receiving a quote of $40-$50k to fix my foundation, Slava arrived and following assessment, quoted $3K. Without removing my deck, the workers did a meticulous job that already withstood another insane rainstorm. This is a quality operation led with integrity. Highly recommend.

Slava and his team were a dream to work with. I got a couple of quotes, and his was the most reasonable, he was able to quote immediately, he was available to start on short notice, and promised to finish the job in a shorter time frame than anyone else. He also showed me his beautiful work at another job site. Everything was done as promised, but even faster than he anticipated. His crew worked over a weekend to ensure they stayed on schedule. They also did additional concrete removal that my demolition crew weren't sure how to handle. They kept everything clean and were extremely professional. Slava is extremely responsive. I am so grateful for their hard work, and I would use them again without hesitation.

After canvassing several friends for recommendations, and getting three estimates for flood-proofing a basement storage room (new interior weeping tile, sump pump installation and sealing membrane on the walls) and installing a backwater valve, I went with Canada Waterproofers. Carl McDowell was the project coordinator, and he was a pleasure to deal with from the first phone call to signing off the job at its conclusion. He was patient and clear in all his explanations, and in many respects went above and beyond expectations. His crew was efficient and thorough in their workmanship and their follow-through in terms of finishing details and clean-up. Carl also helped me fill out the City of Toronto flood subsidy forms. All in all, a first rate experience!
