One of the top questions customers ask us before getting a FREE quotation is, “How much does it cost to waterproof their basement or crawlspace?”
There is not an easy answer to this question. For the average Toronto home, the basement waterproofing cost for a complete system is between $5,000- $15,000. The reality of it depends on several factors that affect the price range. Some leaky basements don’t require as much work as others though some basements need more involved foundation crack repairs to prevent dangerous settling and caving.
Toronto Basement Waterproofing Cost Factors
The most cost-effective basement waterproofing solution is interior basement waterproofing. Which uses a perforated drain pipe installed inside the perimeter of the footing. The process requires removing and replacing concrete at the slab edge. By placing the drain pipe beneath the slab, it drains the area to a lower level. Similar to exterior basement waterproofing, the drainage pipe connects to a sump pump.
A critical component of this approach is the dimpled plastic sheeting placed at the base of the wall and beneath the slab edge. Dimpled sheeting permits free drainage of the wall into the drain pipe. It is less expensive than many specialized drainage channel systems. In low permeability soils, this system cannot accept rising groundwater unless there is an aggregate layer under the slab.
We recommended that this approach, combined with an active soil gas management system that connects with the sump pump and perimeter drain pipe.
