This spring on 2 occasions we got rain water in our basement. I had 3 contractors consult with me and give me prices to repair this situation. Prices were quite close but I also made a point of speaking to previous clients of these contractors and the City Wide Group had the best referrals. This helped me make my selection and City Wide certainly lived up to their previous references. Their on site people were superior.

With all the recent rain we've had this year we unfortunately started to see water pent rating into our fully finished basement, what a nightmare. After pulling out some drywall and realizing I'm not dealing with a simple crack but rather ground water seaping in through the foundation we decided to give a few companies a call and get some quotes for full home outside waterproofing. Of the five companies that we called only 3 got back to me but only one stood out for its good reputation, competitive price and solid knowledge. Alex was our point man throughout the project and was always quick to answer or return my calls. Being my first major project I had a lot of questions, Alex was very friendly and honestly just made me feel like I'd known him for years. The entire project took only about a week and half and the vast majority of the work was done within 3 days. The workers would start 7am and generally stayed till until almost 7pm. Watching these guys work will make you break a sweat, everything was dug by hand rather then with machines to avoid damage to the property in 30 degree heat. When all was said and done everything was cleaned up and replaced exactly how it was found. I purposely waited few weeks after completion of the project to write this review and I'm happy to say no further water leakage has been found, in fact I received a life time warranty from city wide, that's right not 10 or 20 year.....life!!! Highly recommend Alex and his team from city wide, if your planning doing waterproofing do yourself a favor and call these guys!

Terrible experience!! Would not recommend as their customer service is completely unacceptable. My wife and I had our basement waterproofed and it's been over a month and I have not received any receipts, an itemized list of work that was done and cost per item, nor have I received any certificate of completion or warranty. I have called and called and left multiple messages and no one will call me back or offer any sort of help. The sales person we have dealt with is Casey. He does not deliver on his word, he does not return messages or phone calls and he has told us multiple times he would send the above items and still hasn't for over a month now. Their hands were wide open when it was time to give them thousands of dollars and now when I ask for a simple request, no one is around. Unacceptable!!!

Great companies are those that put the customer first and honour their commitments. I recently experienced what I called a 'moment of truth' with City Wide Group: I hired them in 2012 to do basement waterproofing for my house. 5 years later I noticed that some rainwater was leaking into the laundry room in the basement. I called City Wide Group and the owner came over to my house and inspect the work. He detected a defect for one window well (slow drainage). He told me that his company is responsible for this, and will send a crew came to remedy. A few days later the repair team corrected the situation. They also noticed that the ground had sunk in some place and re-levelled the patio stones. All of this for free, as part of the life time warranty. Great customer service!

Alex Viera has been very professional and arranged for the project to be done in a very effective and fast manner. It was a time sensitive matter for us to do the basement waterproofing before having a new air conditioning unit installed and Alex has delivered the work even faster than we have expected.

I am incredibly pleased with the work City Wide did for us. Alex responded immediately to my email for a consultation about my badly leaking basement (foundation cracks), he quickly assessed the issue and provided his recommendation. Alex was in constant communication as to the timing of the work being done, the team finished the job on time, and the clean up of my yard after completion was immaculate. Several downpours later I can happily confirm that my problem is solved. I could not be happier with the end result or the exceptional service - a top notch experience.

I noticed water coming in my basement from one of the cracks in the foundation. I called a couple of places that sent a rep to come over to have a look. When I called Citywide​, Alex was great. He explained to me what needed to get done. He was courteous, professional and answered all my questions. Alex put me at ease more than the other two places I called. The two people who came out to do the work were wonderful
Hard-working and friendly, the job was done and now I have peace of mind. We had a lot of rain since the work was done and not a drop of water in my basement. I hope I never have to deal with water in my basement ever again but if I do, I will be calling Citywide.
