Subsidy Program For Basement Flooding Protection In Toronto​

Basement Waterproofing For Your Leaky Basement? We Can Help!

Due to changes in water pressure, several storms, extensive flooding and inadequate sewerage network, many premises suffer from basement flooding. In cities like Toronto, this problem continues and is reaching unprecedented levels and only worsening. Despite the sewer capacity enhancement works being undertaken by Toronto City, it is still unable to control the vice.

While Toronto City administration focuses on improving the pipelines and sewers, it also recognizes that this may not stop flood damage within the households. In order to help homeowners tackle the problem of basement flooding, it has introduced subsidy programs to prevent the menace. Homeowners can have flood prevention devices fitted at reduced cost where the City caters for much of the cost ranging up to $3,400 for a property. Such subsidies apply to sump pump installation, pipe severance and capping, and backwater valve installation.

To receive the flooding control subsidies, homeowners need to meet certain criteria. They must be registered homeowners occupying their house. They must fill in the subsidy application forms and be willing to get the services from reputable contractors like Aquatech Waterproofing.

Sump Pump Subsidy Toronto

Sump pumps come in varying designs and capacities. Properly installed pumps discharge water quickly from the property and direct them to where water is required. In case of rains, they are able to pump water from basement fast. Sump pump subsidies can cover up to 80 percent of the cost of installation or to a maximum value estimated at$ 1750. The subsidy can be used to install sump pump, replace the existing one or install backup system for the sump pump.

Valve Backflow Prevention Subsidy

Excess rains cause backflow due to overstretched drainage system. Backflows are controlled by the installation of a backflow valve. They are intended to prevent water from flowing back into the premises and flooding basement areas. Backflow valves have flaps set within the pipe works, allowing water to flow only in one direction. Therefore, even in the event of torrent rain, they prevent basement flooding by letting water flow out but not back in the basement.

Experience has shown that installations of these devices are highly efficient in flood control. The city of Toronto subsidies backwater valve installation up to 80 percent of the cost or up to an estimated $1,250.

Take Advantage Of The Flooding Protection Subsidy Program

Homeowners having properties in cities where flood control subsidies are provided should register to benefit from such schemes. At Aquatech Waterproofing, we guarantee excellent flood control services for all homeowners both with and without the flood control subsidies. Since these installations are fast, they save time and with the subsidies, they surely save money.

Acting now can protect your property against potential damages occasioned by flash floods, torrent rains and inclement weather. Instead of waiting for your property to be damaged, causing it to depreciate in value, making you lose tenants, and leaving you several thousand of dollars poorer, why not stitch the problem in time?

We at Aquatech Waterproofing services can help homeowners desiring to utilize these subsidies on the procedure of application and requirements. Once applications have been approved, homeowners can spent as slow as 20 percent of the costs of these crucial flood prevention projects.

Aquatech was wonderful right from the first contact to having Richard come out and give us a very complete and detailed quote to the two man crew who were here exactly on time and completed the day hours ahead of time. All the locates were taken care of and within a week of contacting them the job was completed. The workman did a fabulous job and were very respectful of our property. They reviewed the scope of the work before they started and asked if we had any questions. When the work was complete it was difficult to see where they had worked and dug the trench. Everything was tidier than before they started. We are very impressed and in a world where household repair companies can be less than favourable, Aquatech stands head and shoulders above any of them. We would highly recommend this company. We also have a life time transferable warranty too. Bravo. We will definitely be telling all the people we know about our wonderful experience. Thank you.

They gave us several options for repairs as well as prevention that were fairly priced and a quick turnaround time. They executed our chosen plan quickly and did a beautiful job. They have been very responsive, answering questions about the products we chose and we recommend them to anyone that needs quality work done in a timely manner. Very compassionate and empathetic for our situation as well.

EXCELLENT experience. Andrew was the first one to arrive and was extremely kind and helpful. Igor and Basil joined Andrew a few minutes later and all three of them worked very hard and finished this massive job in one day. These are some of the hardest workers I have ever seen. There were no hassles or surprises and Andrew, Igor and Basil were very skilled and courteous. Also, Nico was VERY flexible with our constant changes of plans and was very accommodating and understanding. An excellent experience all around - could not recommend more highly!

Terry was friendly, fair, and transparent on his work and recommendations. Other bidders could have gouged myself on the price but he was honest. He kept costs downs but the quality was still top notch. He treated our family like one of his own without being “fake” to get the job. He’s as genuine and real as they come.

Slava and his crew did a fantastic job of installing piers and raised our sinking front concrete 4 inches. Very courteous, hard working crew! They hand dig as opposed to other companies that wanted to use a backhoe thus, saved our shrubbery and trees. I would highly recommend Aquatech!
