Types of foundation walls
Repairing a crack in your home’s basement is an important and tricky task. It requires good hands, technical expertise, and ample experience. There are four main types of foundation walls.
- Brick Foundation wall
- Poured Concrete
- Concrete Block
- Foundation made of stone
Foundation made of brick
Most foundation walls on homes 60 years or older in older Toronto areas are made of brick. At DrainCom we find that that is a very good and strong foundation, it can last for a long time without any serious problems. The only major problems with them is that they normally do not have proper modern waterproofing protection and may start to leak or deteriorate. Another thing that we attribute to older brick foundation homes is that most of them do have quite shallow basements with most homeowners choosing to have the ceiling of the basement lowered to provide more headroom in their main level living space. It is very important to hire good, knowledgeable contractors.
At DrainCom inspecting basement foundation walls in older Toronto we have found many problems with improper basement underpinning jobs, which undermine the footings and may result in basement cracks and basement leaks.
Foundation made of concrete
Basement walls made of concrete are strong and solid, and with proper installation it is the strongest and most leak resistant. But poor, quick construction results in homes with concrete foundations to be the most vulnerable to cracks.
Homes built over the past 40 years often cut corners, like skipping the highly critical step of installing a foundation membrane, to save time and expenses. During DrainCom’s Free Basement inspections we’ve seen this practice result in 10-15 cracks that run all the way up, causing your home to be not only structura unsound, but also unpleasant to look at.
Concrete Block foundation
Concrete Block foundation walls are very common in houses 40-70 years old. We found that those houses are very well built, but again there is no foundation membrane protection installed. Another problem is that the concrete blocks are hollow. If cracks allow water to flow in, it fills the block and can stream to a completely different area of your basement. This makes locating the source of the problem during an inspection for basement cracks and leaks much more difficult.
Foundation made of stone
Basements with foundation made of stone are mostly found in older Toronto. Centennial homes (houses one hundred years or older) very rarely have cracks in their solid foundation, but water infiltration problems are frequent. They all lack foundation wrap and weeping tile at the footing level.
Carl was very professional and competitive with his quote. The crew worked extremely hard and were very professional throughout their work as well. I highly recommend Draincom for their service and competitive costs.

I called DrainCom and they quickly responded to my home crisis. They sent out a great plumber, Les, who fixed the problem immediately and made it easy for me to ask the questions I had to better understand what created the water problem. Thanks to Les and DrainCom

I had 3 plumbing problems in 3 different bathrooms in my house between leaking and no hot water in shower. Les came on the right time and fixed all the problems very professionally and the amazing thing he did it in much less time! Definitely I will use this company again… and ask for Les.

I told the estimator, my story and experience, and he told me the problem I am experiencing is common, easy to rectify, and not very costly. He patiently and professionally explained the cause and how to rectify the problem from the INSIDE at a fraction of the cost I was quoted from the others and with much less damage, mess and time.

DrainCom used a camera to look through the pipe for blockages and identified the cause of the back up… TREE ROOTS! He was able to clean out the pipes and showed us the finished product as well. I would highly recommend Draincom and would contact them in the future for any further plumbing/drain services we may require.
