After some basement renovations of my 100 year old Victorian house I realized I had serious water leakage problems at different locations within the basement. I contacted Tornado Plumbing as per very positive reviews on Homestars to provide an assessment of the work needed. After careful inspection of my house Serghiy (Sergey) provided his assessment where a number of issues were apparent. 1) the whole side of the house next to the neighbours needed to be done, 2) a backyard portion containing interlocking stone needed to be done, 3) a previously installed 0.33 horse power sump pump section needed to be incorporated, and 4) waterproofing of a basement room from the inside as there was an add-on section of the house lacking a foundation was required. Serghiy provided a solution where the whole basement (house) would be waterproofed with surrounding weeping tiles connecting to the previously installed sump pump location with a 0.5 horse power upgraded sump pump. This assessment was similar to another contractor’s proposal however the price was by far more reasonable. The job was completed within record time where they worked on a Saturday – despite finding a 1.5 meter granite rock at the foundation of the house that could not be removed – so that added waterproof lining had to encapsulate the rock. Despite the extra work and material, the quoted price was maintained. The interlocking stone was replaced exactly as it was and the site was cleaned up completely after the work was completed. The result was a very pleased customer who highly recommends Tornado Plumbing.
