Any Toronto home can have a wet basement, no matter how well it is built. A lot of the problem lies in conditions beyond your control, such as the operation of the city sewer system or how high the water table is underground where the house is located. Therefore, it means that most houses need to be waterproofed to take care of wetness entering the house. It may be that your water problems can be solved without it costing a lot of money for labor, too.
Although it’s now common practice to reinforce foundations with Toronto waterproofing materials, a lot of older buildings weren’t built this way. Waterproofing both the inside and outside of foundation walls is the best case scenario, but treating just the inside will definitely help. Even if you have old waterproofing in your basement, you’ll find that the materials weren’t nearly as sophisticated back when your home was built, so it should be replaced or covered with modern waterproofing materials. If you are living in an area that is prone to having water in basements, it’s important to have the best waterproofing available.
The best time to waterproof a foundation, of course, is while the home is being built. By doing so you’ll know that the basement will be resistant to water seepage. It’s also a good idea to waterproof the basement floors. Doing all of this during construction makes it easier to get in all the corners and crevices where water could conceivably come in.

Sump Pump Installation & Repair
Sump pumps are a good way to control and prevent flooding in your home’s basement. Many sump pump systems can operate with battery back-up systems that can ensure that they operate even during a power outage. The two basic categories of sump pumps are:
- Pedestal Sump Pumps – use a motor mounted above the pit used to collect water, where they are more easily serviced but also more visible
- Submersible Sump Pumps – are entirely mounted inside the pit and are specially sealed to prevent electrical short circuits
In addition, no matter what the job is, you can always count on:
- Same Day Service.

What Toronto Homeowners Are Saying About Us
We wish to express our appreciation for prompt, reliable, competent and courteous services recently provided us by Priority Plumbing. Last winter during extreme cold temperatures, our pipes froze. We called Priority Plumbing and they arrived immediately and safely defrosted them. Just having purchased our house, we wanted to make sure that this didn’t happen again. Priority Plumbing educated us about the various options, explained what the costs entailed, maintained excellent communications throughout, and successfully solved our problem. They provided us with such competent plumbers and excellent service, that when it was time to renovate our bathroom we called them. Priority Plumbing is not only reliable in solving any plumbing emergency but also great at bathroom renovation projects.
Tom Nicolaou, Down Town Toronto
(Upper Annex Toronto ON) Your company is great. Thanks for doing everything just as promised on my recent call. It’s nice to know we have a plumbing we can depend on. Now I have no Plumbing worries thank you. At age 97 this is very important.
I’d had this plumbing problem for a while but kept it off. I’m so glad I called Priority Plumbing you were on time, fixed the problem, and were actually polite and professional too. Thanks again.
