Waterman Can Help With Basement Flood Protection in Toronto

Every year, thousands of homeowners wake up, or come home from work, only to find that they have flooded basements. Although their immediate concern might be for their possessions that are being stored, or even for the safety of their family, it isn’t long before they begin to consider the root cause of the problem, and what they can do to correct it.

Flooded Basement Protection

Unfortunately, many regular plumbers aren’t experts in offering flood protection in Toronto. While the problems that lead to basement flooding are common enough, repairing them effectively – instead of simply sealing the cracks – takes an expertise with concrete, drains, and specialty waterproofing.

That’s where the expert team at Waterman Inc. comes in. For a number of years, we have worked directly with plumbers, fixing flooded basements and other drain issues when they are too severe for everyday plumbing tools. Now, we are making our team available to homeowners throughout southern Ontario. So, if you’re dealing with flooded basements, make us your first call.

There are a lot of different issues that can cause flooded basements, such as:

  • Cracks in the interior and exterior of your basement concrete, allowing water in from the outside
  • Built-up groundwater breaking through holes or worn down sealants because of hydrostatic pressure
  • Excessive rain, flooding, and melting snow that can be prevalent in Toronto and southern Ontario during certain times of the year
  • Poor concrete repairs, old masonry work, and sloppy work after previously flooded basements

No matter what the root issue is, however, the team at Waterman Plumbing, Inc. can help you dry things out, repair any damage, and prevent any future flooded basements. That’s because we take a customer-centered approach to every call, meaning that you get the very best in expert help and opinions, whether you have a big job or a small one.

Call Us Immediately for Flood Protection

Once you are dealing with flooded basements, there isn’t any time to waste. Regular plumbers aren’t always equipped to deal with these types of drainage problems, which is why so many of them turn to the expert team here at Waterman Inc. to help out on a regular basis.

Preventing floods is our specialty, so if water is starting to come in through your walls or foundation, don’t lose a second before picking up the phone to call us at Waterman Inc.

At Waterman Inc we protect homes by disconnecting people off the storm line, and installing a backwater valve on the main sanitary drain. Most people have storm water flood because the cities infrastructure cannot keep up with the rain fall. it is vital to disconnect the downspouts from the drain and allow them to flow onto the lawn or into a french drain. Once your home is flood protected you will only keep in mind that if the backwater valve closes during a huge storm, it is important not to use the water in the home because the drain will be closed. We also provide a no monitoring required flood alarm to further warn you that the drain is not working, should not be used, and we need to be dispatched out to your home for a free check in.

I called several plumbing/drain companies for an estimate to unclogg my bathtub drain and Jim was the most reasonable in price. I found Jim to be very punctual, quick and efficient. I also had Jim quote on two much larger drain jobs, he took the time to professionally explain the scope of work needed with diagrams and gave a fair price.

The owner, Jim, was recommended to us by a friend who had a damaged (roots) sewer line, as we did, and used his services. We have nothing but good things to say about Jim and his crew. From the onset Jim was prompt, straight forward and very transparent about options.
