Exterior Waterproofing

I did exterior waterproofing of my semi this past Spring. The job was complicated by the narrow area between the houses, an the structural issues we uncovered due to the age of the house. Barry and his crew were fantastic, answering all my questions, keeping the site clean and tidy, and taking care inside as well. Angelo and Rino offered advice and straight talk about challenges and costs, which I truly appreciated. I have not had any water issues whatsover this summer, and I think the last few months have been a good test of the work done - so relieved! Good follow up too! Thanks Watertite!

waterproofing

Watertite waterproofed our home. They came and worked everyday until the job was done. We have not have any water issues in the basement since the work was done. I can recommend them and have recommended them to friends.

Waterproofing

I selected Watertite to waterproof two walls of our home based on a referral from a neighbour. The entire process was fully explained in their quotation and their price was competitive. The crew was very hardworking and the foreman Barry was always on site to direct the work. They completed the work in a very careful and professional manner. An issue was discovered with one of our walls that required additional work below the footer. Due to the very wet conditions and soil erosion, this wall was completed in sections requiring several extra days of work. They also identified and resolved an electrical problem with my air conditioning line that had been inappropriately buried underground. A window well was also installed at no extra charge. I am very pleased with the job that was completed and highly recommend them to anyone who needs waterproofing done.

Exterior waterproofing

We were recommended Watertite by a neighbour who was very happy with their work. After getting quotes from 6 different contractors, we felt confident that Watertite was the right choice. Rino was the first contractor to get back to us, explained the process & our options in a way that made sense and was reasonably priced. (Quotes ranged between $8k- $30k)
Their workers, especially the foreman Barry, did an excellent job. Our property and our neighbour's properties were treated with exceptional care- shrubbery that was removed was replanted, the deck was removed & replaced, tarps were laid under piles of dirt that was excavated by hand and our landscaping ended up looking better than before.
We had the work done at the end of November 2012 & with so much snow & rain this winter season, we are very happy with the results of the work, which is backed by a 20 year warranty.
We wholeheartedly recommend Rino & his crew to anyone considering waterproofing their basement.

Highly recommend !!

I had quoation from different contractors and selected Watertite Waterproofers. Rino is very professional, transparent and well organized person. 20 years of transferable warranty card!! The quotation papers and final agreement were very clear. The price was fair. They started work and finished on schedule. Chimney work was done very well. The workers on site were very courteous, and clearly communicated what they were doing and took the time to answer our questions. Berry was at the site every day, so he knew exactly how the work was going. We were very impressed by how clean watertite kept the work. Their work was very neat untill the end. They took safety as priority during the work. I highly recommended Watertite Waterproofers..Thanks Rino.

waterproofing exterior wall

Great customer service, Rino was very articulate in explaining the work he was recommending. Introduced me to the foreman (Mike) the day before work started. Mike and the rest of the crew did a fantastic job, and a thorough cleanup afterward. Price was competitive with other estimates I got. I would definitely recommend Watertite to anyone who needs this kind of work done.

West wall

We are repeat customers to Watertite Waterproofers. Our first house need the entire perimeter waterproofed. The basement became dry, warmer and sealed tight when they finished. Our second property we noticed moisture on our west wall while painting. We had a competitive quote done by Angelo including provisions to do the job in stages for specific areas. What we uncovered during the West wall took care of the moisture and ensured us that the weeping tiles were working around the rest of the foundations. Our job was 1/3 of the work and cost than what was planned for. Angelo's crew were hardworking, polite and experts at repairing and putting our property back together. I will only call Watertite in the future.

Exterior Basement Waterproofing

We had 4 different companies quote on a waterproofing for about half the perimeter of our house. After a lot of research and a thorough review of the techniques each company was using, checking references through respected people in the industry, we moved forward with engaging Watertite to perform the work. Given the very wet spring and the mixed weather over the summer, it took about 3 months to have them come (we didn't have an emergency situation) but they did set this expectation up front so this did not present an issue.

Both the representative (Rino) and the crew showed up when they said they would and kept the site at tidy as possible at the end of each day. When they ran into concerns they were quick to communicate with me.

I took photo's of the work at the end of each day and was very happy with the quality of the work and the condition that my property was left in when they were done.

Overall, we were very happy and would recommend Watertite for anyone needing this type of work.

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.
