Waterproof leaky basement

I had several companies assess the leaky basement, none offered me an estimate just described crazy repairs that would need to be done with no clear understanding of what needed to be done. They dug up the front of the house, replaced the weeping tile, fixed a crack and fixed the whole that was from the water main not being installed properly and fastened a waterproof membrane (I forget what it's called). My quote was very detailed and anyone I read the quote to was very happy with it.

Foundation repair(cracks)

They dug down to the footing and repaired the cracks,sealing them appropriately. The work was done clean and efficiently, considering it rained the week that they worked.

Single Crack Repair

We had water coming in from a rod hole. Dean came right over and had his workman on site the next morning. They repaired the area but a few weeks later the leak came back...I called at 7 PM and left a message, the response was immediate from both Noreen and Dean. Again Dean was right over with Gavin, they looked at the area and saw the problem and were back that afternoon to correct it. It is a day later with apx 30-50 mm of rain on the ground and no issue.Very good work, great response to a follow up issue.One of the best companies I've worked with...

With lots of water coming through an old block wall foundation we dug down to find that a large section of weeping tile was missing because the builder didn't bother to remove an oversized boulder next to the wall. We jack-hammered the boulder into manageable pieces and removed it. There were also several tennis ball sized holes in the blocks. We repaired all and back-filled just hours before a rainstorm. Not a drop in the basement!

I am glad Dean and his crew were able to meet your timeline which sounds like it was just in the nick of time! Again, if you had waited till spring you would have encountered further damage. Our crews have been with us for many years and know exactly what to do when unforeseen obstacles present themselves. Thank you for putting our knowledge and experience to work for you.

I met with Dean who clearly identified what needed to be done. His team was punctual and efficient. The work was done cleanly. They took apart my deck and patio and returned it to its original state. We were very satisfied with the work. Thank you.

MacRea foundation crew did a fantastic job on an underpinning project at my house. This is your dream contractor: done in a short period of time, inexpensive, they made sure I was well informed on everything they did and they made sure I had a plenty of input on the finishing touches. Not to mention the warranty and a ton of sound advises on how to make sure my foundation remains in a good condition. I absolutely recommend their services.

Basement waterproofing

I called G.J. Macrae Foundation Repair when we had a leak in our basement wall because I saw them on Holmes on Homes. They were prompt, courteous and kept their word regarding cost and timelines. They even came out in January 2015 to do the work in the freezing cold. And I was so glad we didn't wait because we had some unusual weather a few weeks later with a big melt and my neighbour had $20,000 of damage in his basement and mine was

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!" An old saying Andrea but still holds true -- especially when it comes to protecting your most valuable asset; your home! You were smart to have your repair done in Jan 2015 as per your comments and not waiting until spring.. We work all year and it is important others realize that if they have a leaking basement in the winter months we can look after their issue in the winter months! Thank you for bringing that to the attention of others. Noreen, G J MacRae Foundation Repair, 905 824 2557 Mississauga, ON

Sump Pump

We've used MacRae Foundations twice, both times to fix different sump pump related problems caused by other contractors. They are knowledgeable, efficient, courteous, reasonably priced and the job gets done right.

Basement waterproofing

We used G J McCrae on two occasions. The first two repair a small foundation crack in a previous home (solved leaking) and recently for waterproofing two basement walls. That was two years ago and I'm happy to report that at this point no leaking in the basement, even after recent heavy rains. The MacCrae crew worked extra hard digging thru heavy clay, by hand in a space too narrow for equipment, applied waterproofing materials, replaced weeping tile, and then a great job restoring patio stones and paving stone walkway.
