When looking for catch basin repairs in Toronto for commercial and industrial spaces, it’s important to choose a team of experienced professionals who can ensure that your property is well-maintained, save you additional costs on future repairs, and prevent damage on your paved surface.

Catch basin repair is crucial for paved surfaces in commercial and industrial spaces. Catch basins remove and drain standing water, preventing asphalt from degrading and other costly forms of damage. Installing catch basins, cleaning them regularly, and keeping them in good condition will save property owners money in the long term.

Why Do Catch Basins Fail?


Catch basins, also known as storm drains or storm sewers, fail for many different reasons. Prior to a catch basin failing, you’ll likely see symptoms of the problem on the pavement surface.

Water can damage your asphalt by degrading the surface or seeping into cracks, degrading the ground beneath. Catch basins drain water from your parking lot or other asphalt surface, preventing the costly types of damage that can occur. There are a variety of things that can compromise the effectiveness of drainage—for instance, clogged catch basins, sunken catch basins, or unlevelled pavement can all impede drainage and lead to damage.

We provide a range of professional repairs and services for catch basins on commercial and industrial properties.

Catch Basin Repair

For minor forms of damage, such as broken asphalt around the catch basin or broken frames and grates, simple catch basin repairs can prevent damage from getting worse and help property owners avoid for more costly repairs.


For cracks, small holes, and degraded surfaces around your catch basin, asphalt resurfacing can help prevent the damage to your surface and catch basin.

Asphalt Remove and Replacement

For extensive forms of damage in surrounding asphalt, removing and replacing asphalt may be necessary for repairing your catch basin and surrounding areas.

Catch Basin Cleaning

If catch basins are clogged and drainage is impeded, a cleaning can help return drainage and proper functioning on your asphalt surface.

Catch Basin Rebuilding

When a catch basin collapses or has sunken in, it may need a complete catch basin rebuild.

Catch Basin Repaving

For extensive damage, such as potholes around the catch basin or elevated surfaces impeding drainage, repaving can help correct any issues.

Inlet and Outlet Repair


Inlet and Outlet drain pipes can have tuck-point parging failures around the drain pipes over time. These will allow soil and granular material to enter the catch basin from around the drain pipes. We use high strength hydraulic concrete to repair these areas to ensure durable repairs.

Pup Structure Repair


Settlement around a catch basin could be occurring due to failure of the catch basin pup structure. Using the wrong materials to repair a catch basin (interlock brick as shown), will always result in pre-mature repair failure. We use only pre-cast, steel reinforced concrete modulock units to rebuild structure.

The Catch Basin Repair Process

At Sure-Seal Pavement Maintenance Inc., we follow a standard process for all of our catch basin repairs and catch basin rebuilding for commercial and industrial clients. This ensures that our commercial clients receive the highest standard of repair and service for their asphalt surfaces and catch basins drainage.

Step One: First, we saw cut around the catch basin and remove the damaged asphalt and concrete around the drain. Once the asphalt is removed, we dispose of it off site for recycling.
Step Two: Next, we remove damaged interior brick, replacing it and rebuilding the catch basin, assuming these repairs are necessary.
Step Three: Once we have completed the rebuild, we reset the grate back into the repaired basin.
Step Four: Now, we perform asphalt paving around the catch basin area, grading and compacting asphalt in a multi-layered process. Careful attention is paid to the grading of the asphalt, ensuring that there is proper drainage.
Step Five: Once paving is done, we clean up the work site, removing debris and taking it off site for either recycling or disposal.
Step Six: The worksite is closed off until it’s ready for traffic.


The repair area is saw cut, asphalt removed and disposed off site for recycling.


Once edging is complete, a single pass of spray sealer is carefully applied, directed away from all curb edges.


The Base asphalt layer is placed, graded and compacted .to 1.5″ below final elevation to leave depth for the top layer of asphalt.


The finish layer of asphalt is then paved. Careful attention is given to the grading of the asphalt around the catch basin to ensure the proper drainage of all pavement surface water into the drainage system.


Proper Compaction starts with proper equipment. We use only Heavy-Duty, vibratory asphalt roller to ensure proper compaction and finish on all of our repairs.
