What Makes Us Different from Other Waterproofing Companies in Toronto?
Unfortunately, there are a lot of shady dealers out there who give the industry a bad reputation. As a homeowner, you need to trust that when you get a quote, that price is what you’ll pay. You need to trust that when you schedule an appointment, the technicians will actually show up and perform the work. You deserve the services of repair experts who are qualified, courteous, respectful of your home, and take great pride in their work.
We have been in business for over 30 years. We are accredited members of the Better Business Bureau. We are fully insured and bonded. All work is performed by our highly trained staff and we do not outsource any work to sub-contractors. Any work in your home is performed only by professional waterproofers who have completed the two-year apprenticeship program or become licensed as Master Waterproofers. All waterproofers at The Crack Doctor are trained by certified waterproofing instructors at our teaching facility.
Simply put, this is not a “guy and a pickup operation.” We use state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to permanently waterproof basements and repair foundations.
From the estimator who visits and inspects your property to draft a detailed quote, to the office support staff who help with scheduling and any queries you have, to the certified waterproofing technicians who perform the work on your home, to our follow-up support for any warranty service, every single member of The Crack Doctor team plays a role in keeping your basement permanently dry.
We fix more wet basements than anyone in Canada and pride ourselves on high customer satisfaction.
What Causes Basement Leaks?
Basement leaks have a number of potential causes. Your basement water issue could be caused by one of these common culprits or a combination. Basements leaks happen when water enters the home via penetration. Common sources include foundation cracks, tie ride holes, sill plates, failed weeping tile, window wells, construction joints, leaking mortar joints, and leaking penetrations around pipes for electrical, gas, or plumbing.
Water often leaks through the walls, but it can also come from the floor and the edges of the walls. If your home has a failed weeping tile drainage system or malfunctioning sump pump, you can expect to see what through the floor cracks.
Toronto Basement Waterproofing
Our master waterproofers will thoroughly inspect your property to identify the source of the leak. It is important to note that the apparent source of the problem may not actually be the root problem, and solving it with a sealant will only provide a temporary fix. For permanent basement waterproofing, we identify and waterproof all sources of water leaks. We can repair from the inside or outside.
Toronto Foundation Repair
Cracked or crumbling foundations are common in older Toronto homes, but we also see them in new builds that were not properly constructed or where there is significant foundation settling. Whether you have a concrete, cinder block, brick, stone, or rubble foundation, our foundation repair professionals can fix it. We will identify the issue and select the right materials and solutions to use. With a lifetime transferrable warranty on our foundation repair, you can rest easy knowing it is permanent and any repair needs are free.
In a dense city like Toronto, there are issues that can complicate an otherwise straightforward repair process. We have the know-how and creativity to navigate around common issues like the proximity of a neighbour’s home or a deck, sunroom, or landscaping that you do not want to be affected by the repair.
Toronto Crack Repair
It doesn’t matter if your home has an interior crack or an exterior crack – we can fix it. For cracks found in poured concrete foundations, our typical process is to perform a high-pressure injection of a urethane resin or epoxy. There are many crack repair solutions out there, but in our professional experience high-pressure urethane repair is the most permanent, most effective solutions.
For cracks that are only noticeable from the outside, our repair experts will excavate to the bottom of the foundation wall and expose the full-length injection. Provided the foundation is made from solid, pour concrete, high-pressure urethane repair is the right solution. For cinder block foundations and other foundation materials, we generally recommend a membrane repair.
Toronto Mold Remediation
Basement water leaks have a very nasty common side effect: mold growth. If water enters the basement and has no route of escaping, it will stagnate. This may be a huge rush of water due to a rainstorm or flood, it could be a trickle of water from a small crack, or it could even be the result of condensation in a high humidity environment.
Common signs of basement mold include a musty odor, water damage, or black, green, brown, or white spots or patches on the floor, carpet wall, ceiling, or materials in the basement. Mold has many negative side effects, including allergy-like symptoms and breathing problems.
Protect the health of your family – schedule mold remediation from The Crack Doctor. We will perform a top to bottom examination to identify mold and the extent of growth. We will order a complete analysis to identity the cause of mold and permanently eliminate it. Finally, we will safely remove the mold so you can get back to enjoying the space.
Toronto Wet Basement Repair
A wet basement is a health hazard that can affect the value of your home. We offer a range of basement waterproofing services to permanently remedy your wet basement, including the installation of an internal drainage system, French drain, weeping tile, sump pump, or window wells.
