In early summer 2020, I contracted Blue Circle Contracting Inc. to waterproof two partial sides of the foundation walls of my house to prevent flooding into my basement. The flooding was not significant but still needed sealing externally. Blue Circle arranged for another company to do the repair work. The grounds of the affected areas were dug up, membranes and weeping tiles were installed and the soil loosely put back (without being compacted by machine as normally done) and left. Two weeks after, it rained and water came streaming into my basement, even worse than before, including an area which was never flooded for the 38 years I have been in the house, but which external wall was dug up as part of the “repair”. Blue Circle Contracting claimed that unless I waterproof the entire house, flooding will continue!!! He never came to review the situation and also washed his hands off the project and left with the payments paid to him (in 5 digits). I had 3 other companies come to review the condition, and they were all aghast at the mess created with membranes unsealed, gaping gaps and stones strewn all over my lawn, a plant torn off etc. Finally I had another company re-do the entire work, dug up the soil, ripped out everything and re-did all proofing. They did a phenomenal job, they were efficient, respectful to my property and no more flooding (i.e. no need to seal the entire house). They also did it at half the cost of what I paid Blue Circle.
The Blue Circle Contracting experience is the WORST I have had over the 38 years I have been in my house. I never imagined that I had to pay someone that sum of money to put more damage to my house, at the same time be subjected to his offensive and insulting attitude in disowning responsibility. Lesson learned.
