Quick and quality response

We discovered a crack in our foundation in early February - Dave was recommended by a family friend and his crew showed up quickly to inject the foundation and stop further seepage - he then moved the exterior work up by a month and we were extremely satisfied with the plan, the team sent on site and their professionalism. The quality of the repair was very high and we would recommend his team for similar work

Foundation Waterproofing and Sump Installation

I couldn't be happier with my experience with Dave and his team! They provide exactly the kind of service that you always hope you get when hiring a contractor - highly professional, responsive, fairly-priced and above all, a superior level of expertise and work quality that inspires full confidence.

From my first call to Dave - who answered directly (a rarity with contractors these days, especially ones booked several months in advance like him) - to him taking full and instant responsibility for an issue that arose after the job, the whole experience was impressive from beginning to end. From the start, it almost felt like Dave was just a very competent and friendly buddy or neighbour who's helping you out with an issue, as he was very personable and responsive throughout the process. There was never any upselling or feeling like I was wasting his important time and instead, it was the complete opposite - he's patient in explaining the ins and outs of your issue and the potential options for solving and very honest in describing the benefits and risks of each option (ie. helping the customer decide the best balance of affordability vs. risk).

Beyond Dave himself, it is obvious that he hires his crew to reflect his way of dealing with customers - as they exhibited the same courteous, helpful and competent ways like their boss. I would not hesitate to hire Dave and his crew again and will enthusiastically recommend them to any friends or colleagues looking for someone in the future.

Thanks again to you and your crew, Dave, for finally giving us confidence that we'll have a dry basement after the next big rain!!

Could not recommend more highly

Dave and his crew excavated and waterproofed most of our foundation in the fall of 2017. We were so impressed—they were quick and highly skilled, and they put our yard back together beautifully afterward. About a year and a half later, we noticed another leak, and without boring you with the details, it ended up being a one-in-a-million issue with our house that Dave's team could never have anticipated. But even though the leak was no fault of the work they had done, Dave was completely on top of it and dedicated to figuring out the cause, and he didn't charge us for the additional work required to address it. I recommend his team to anyone who mentions needing foundation work—with projects this pricey and work that is basically invisible to you but so important to the integrity of your house, having someone as knowledgable and trustworthy as Dave is so valuable.

Basement foundation crack Injection

My basement had quite a few cracks that I wanted to seal before finishing my basement. I contacted DM Foundation and the whole process from initial quote (Jesse) to completion was very smooth. Jesse and Justin came and they were great from beginning to finish. The price was very good compared to other companies for the number of cracks I had. I high recommend them if you are looking for a foundation contractor.

Foundation waterproofing

Last Spring our basement flooded. We researched, consulted engineers, and got estimates from five of the best rated contractors. Dave gave us the best proposal and by far exceeded expectations. Dave and his crew were hard working, polite, helpful, and nice to have around.
Once the inside walls of the foundation were exposed the job turned out to be more extensive than expected. Two foundation walls had to be removed and rebuilt, other walls were stabilized with Kevlar strapping, and a new garage floor was poured. As well, we decided to enlarge basement windows while the foundation was exposed and close off the cold room. Every step of the way Dave came up with the best solutions and quickly engaged extra workers and materials needed. The price for the original work and the additional work was very reasonable. Waterproofing is expensive, messy, and disruptive but Dave and his crew went above and beyond to make it as smooth as it could be. We are very grateful.

Foundation, Garage and Basement Renovation

New to Ottawa, I was looking for someone to assist in a major home renovation including an update to our home's foundation weeping system and installation of concrete walls for a new garage and basement. Dave's team was the perfect fit. Not only did he execute on time and on budget, but was invaluable in helping us source local independent, expert trades people. Dave is intelligent, hardworking and trustworthy. He is a pleasure to work with and his team consistently exhibited the same wonderful values. Thank you, Dave and team, for assisting our family!

Superior service

Had a water leak in basement. I left a message on a long weekend. They followed up and the job was done on the first day after the long weekend.
The gentleman who came to do the work was professional and friendly. His work was outstanding.

Interior Foundation Hairline Cracks

It's important to note that a review does not do enough justice for the service that we received, TOP QUALITY!

We called DM because we read his fantastic reviews on HomeStars. From the very first call Dave was extremely accommodating on the phone and was able to see us within two weeks for an initial consult. During the initial consult Dave inspected the interior of the foundation and actually took the time to explain the situation. He explained to us why these hairline cracks formed and what route is the best to fix them (every case is different). After talking with Dave we decided to use his slow Epoxy Injection method. Dave let us know that we could wait to do this but it was 100% our choice to do now. We felt comfortable getting it all done right away, and he put no pressure on us.

Dave's team filled a total of 16 cracks and were able to complete the job in 1 workday. They were professional, clean and extremely quiet during the whole process. His team kept us updated on the work they were doing and were not afraid to ask us any questions throughout the process. In fact, they would not even leave the stair landing and call us over as they did not want to disturb us. We found this quite professional.

Dave's team did all the heavy work, they cut the wood studs, moved the insulation and placed it exactly where we asked them. They even went above and beyond and filled small areas where the foundation had chipped away with cement (at no charge). This was fantastic and it was quite surprising.

I've read Dave's reviews many times and I honestly could not believe how good they were, but as i said from the start, reviews don't do justice for his work. I HIGHLY recommend DM Foundations to anyone looking to get work complete in the future. His company will be the first one we call in the future (we hope we don't need to) if we need any foundation or garage flooring work done.

BOTTOM LINE: YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH DM FOUNDATION.
