Crack repairs, external waterproofing, etc.

This summer and fall Dave and his guys filled a number of cracks we discovered as we were renovating the basement, investigated water drainage issues, waterproofed, and repaired a poorly installed underground eavestrough drain. This was not our first dealing with Dave. He had done some waterproofing for us about 10 years ago, and a big job for my parents including installation of a sump pump about 3-4 years. We didn't even consider calling anyone else. Some of the guys that work for him today were working for him 10 years ago. He obviously treats them well, and everyone from the top down is courteous and conscientious. I highly recommend Dave Marcotte Foundations.

Damp proofing, insulation, weeping tile,

Both our arborist and engineer recommended Dave, so we went with him. It is quite the operation tbh - the dump truck and bins allow him to haul away earth very quickly (2 days), the damp proofing, insulation and backfill was done in a week. The following week the parging was completed, brought soil back to grade and our lives got back to normal. Dave replaced our lead pipe and when I called him about the garden water connection extension he was there bright and early on a Saturday, no complaints. Dave and his crew were a pleasure to have around the house. I have worked on crews before and these guys were not your typical construction crew, nice, polite, professional. I am happy to recommend them and we are very happy with the work.

New basement egress window

After a foundation crack was filled, I decided to install an egress window, mainly to allow more light into the basement recreation room.

Due to covid, it took a while for things to get going, but, after getting a call on a Sunday afternoon, the wheels went into motion. Monday morning, a team was there to dig a trench and clear out the space for the window including a sub-contracted company coming in to cut the concrete in order to make room for the new window. On day two, the window was installed and the soil and grass were replaced as well as a steel guard to support the trench. Other than waiting for the window installer to come and fix a gap on the upper exterior of the window, everything appears to be 99% complete.

Dave Marcotte Foundations

The problem with the house/garage foundation was assessed and I was given a description of what need to be done, when work was to begin and the cost.
All materials were brought in and work started on the date agreed on.
Everyone from the company was courteous and work was finished on time without any disruption to our household. Site was left neat and clean.
Very satisfied with the work and professionalism of all concerned .

Foundation Crack repair

After heavy rains couple of months ago we found a very small water leak in our basement. After examination we found a very fine crack in the exterior of the foundation wall. We called 3 companies that do foundation repairs for quotes and finally selected Dave Marcotte Foundation. Our selection was based on their professionalism in dealing with the client and their prompt response to many of our questions in a satisfactory manner. Their crew members Ryan and Lyndon were very professional, Courteous and pleasant to deal with. They did an excellent job finished the project on time as well as cleaned up all of the working area. We highly recommend Dave Marcotte Foundation repair company.

Second time/property that we've hired them to repair cracks that extended all the way to the footings. Both times the work was done quickly and professionally. Good communication before and after the jobs.

Foundation repair and waterproofing

We have an older home with a concrete block foundation. Ground water was leaking into the basement through cracks in our mortar.
Dave and his team were great. They repaired the damage, replaced our weeping tiles, added a water proof membrane and a sump pump.

Dave was easy to reach with any questions and his quote was very detailed and accurate. His team was friendly and really seem to enjoy their work. They got the work done quickly and repaired our lawn afterwards.

Foundation repair

We recently had a foundation issue repaired. The team was really good from the start all the way through to the end of the process. The work was exactly as quoted. It was easy to get answers to our questions and there were no surprises with the job.
The crew took the time to explain what they were doing and were very professional. They were also respectful of not only our property, but our neighbour's property as well.
