Waterproofing perimeter of house

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.

Sincerely,

Exterior Waterproofing

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.

waterproofing

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!

Basement Waterproofing

We would highly recommend the Watertite team to waterproof your home. Rino provided professional advice and explained in detail the process needed to solve our basement issues. The staff worked extremely hard to excavate around the perimeter of our home by hand. They were extremely considerate cleaning up the job site daily and leaving the site in the same condition in which they found it, keeping our neighbours happy. The waterproofing was completed within the estimated time. We would like to thank all the staff involved with our project.

exterior waterproofing

The project included exterior waterproofing 2 walls on my foundation and attaching a back flow valve in the basement.
The work proved challenging on this 120 year old house but Rino and Barry and his team kept me informed of the issues and offered straight forward solutions.
The on site work was professional and respectful of the rest of the yard and garden.
Although the work took longer than expected to begin, it was well worth the wait to have Watertite do the job.
For unexpected reasons the back flow valve could not be installed at this time but I will be contacting Rino again in the near future to complete the job.

External waterproofing of basement walls

We have had two jobs done by Watertite and have been extremely satisfied with the work. The jobs were done in the estimated time, their staff were extremely courteous and went above and beyond to leave the work site in the same condition that they found it. If we needed additional waterproofing work done we would not hesitate to have Watertite do the work.

Waterproofing side of house.

The Watertite team was extremely professional! They had to dig by hand along the side of our house in order to waterproof it with painting a seal and attaching a membrane, and also installing window wells. As they dug, they ran into big rocks and roots, which had to be removed. The job was done efficiently and they were done in 2 days! They did an amazing job of cleaning up, including our neighbour's driveway, which they had to use to put the dirt on when they were digging. The team leader, Rino, kept us informed throughout all the steps of the project. I would highly recommend Watertite!

basement leaking water

Mr. Averso of Watertite company provided prompt, courteous and knowledgeable assessment of the problem, water leaking into the basement; he quickly identified the problem source and the remediation required within a week after the original request for assistance. I would feel very confident in requesting additional assistance in the future and most certainly will recommend Watertite waterproofing specialists to my friends and family!

Thank you Roslyn for taking the time to write this review. Not all homes we inspect require waterproofing. In some cases, such as yours, we identify issues that can easily be rectified by the homeowner and that are the source of the problem. I am happy we were able to help!

More about Watertite Waterproofers

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.
