I called RCC based on ads I had seen and overall positive reviews on this site. The home we had just purchased was the third I’ve owned over 25 years and was supposedly leak free. Sadly not true. After experiencing a different company in Winnipeg with a much larger excavation, expectations of time to complete the job and how the yard would look afterwards were not high. We were told it would likely be a 2 day job, though RCC would send one of their best teams. Sure. We’ve heard that before.
When the crew of 5 arrived on time and started working of course the excavation of 16 feet wasn’t a pretty sight. It’s a deep hole in mud, with lots of mud out of the hole.
The excavated mud however was stored on tarps and our neighbor’s wall was protected in a spot where the houses have very limited clearance.
Bottom line is the wall was excavated, the crack located, chipped out carefully, sealed with hydraulic cement and then a membrane over the rest of the wall. Each step was done with care.
When the wall was repaired and the weeping tile replaced, the mud was returned to the excavation, packed in stages and gravel placed over the mud as a walkway until next year when a final packing will take place if the ground sinks at all. Job done in about 6 1/2 hours. Could I tell they were there after the crew had packed up? Hardly. The yard and storage sites for the excavated mud looked almost like nothing had happened. Couldn’t be happier with the end result and after a significant rain, no more water in the basement.
All in all reasonable price for great work.
