Garage Slab and Driveway Replacement

A 1960s concrete garage slab and asphalt driveway were in desperate need of full replacement. Nathan and team put forward a thorough proposal to get the job done and ensure the quality of the results would satisfy. From the first onsite review, to proposal, construction and final inspection they were professional, punctual and provided excellent attention to detail. All of my questions and concerns were promptly addressed and not knowing construction was never made to feel unknowledgeable. I am very satisfied with the end result and would only provide an enthusiastic and positive review!

Excavation and basement waterproofing

In 2015, we did major construction to a home we purchased in Alta Vista. When we excavated, we saw the home originally had clay weeping tile around the foundation. The new addition would have the proper sock and tube for weeping tiles.

Over the years, we saw our basement sump pump continue to run for a few days after a large rainfall. We knew that there must be an issue with the old weeping tiles. We contacted Ottawa Building & Foundation Repair, and met with Nathan. From the initial meeting to the final check-up, Nathan was professional, knowledgeable and very attentive.

Some of the excavation was on the side of the house and special consideration had to be given to our neighbours fence. The team was great and very careful. They were extremely attentive and very thorough throughout the entire process. The site was left clean at the end of every day and the impact on neighbours was always taken Tino account.

I appreciate the dedication and attention to detail, and would fully recommend Nathan and Ottawa Building & Foundation Repair for your home if you need to waterproof your basement and replace weeping tiles like we did.

Egress window well installation

I had OBFR complete a window well excavation, so we could enlarge a basement window. The team handle everything from Locating the utilities, excavation, cutting a larger hole for the bigger window, waterproofing the area, backfilling and installing the new window well. The completed the job without any issues in timely manner, and left the job site in great shape and even topped up the grass in the area with some fresh soil and grass seed. Would not have any hesitation to use their services again or recommend them to any one I know.

Excellent company excellent work.

I can't speak for other companies but to be sure if you require extensive foundation work you are safe with this company. They redid a big chunk of my foundation around the garage, rebricked the front of the garage and replaced the garage floor. It is clear they did an excellent job and it was important to them that I was a satisfied customer. I gave them top rating no problem.

Small foundation and parging repair

Extremely pleased with the responsiveness and level of service provided. This was a small job and it was difficult to find a service provider who was interested in doing the work. My request for a quote was answered right away and the work was scheduled within a week. You can't even see where they patched it. Thanks so much!!!

Egress Window Cut

We hired Nathan and his crew to cut a large window in our basement, install a window well, and do some parging work. We had a couple of issues we encountered, but the professionalism and desire to work together for a solution was unparalleled. I have dealt with many contractors in this city and I cannot heap enough praise on these folks. Hire them!

Foundation Repair

We chose OBFR to repair the foundation on our home and are very happy that we did. It was our first foundation work, so we contacted three contractors recommended by our realtor. Right away, Nathan’s professionalism was clear to us, as he took great care in drafting his estimate (which did not vary from the final bill) and was always willing to answer our novice questions.

We were preparing our house for sale and under tight timelines. Nathan and his team were quick to schedule and complete the initial work. We ended up asking Nathan to return twice for follow-up, including masonry and backfilling—issues that arose mainly because of the conditions of our home sale—and he was very professional. OBFR also guarantees its work, which is transferable to our new owners.

We were very pleased with Nathan and his team, who were always easy to work with, and would recommend them to anyone looking for foundation repair.

Foundation repair and sump pump installation

Nathan Sally and his team did an excellent job repairing a portion of our foundation and installing a sump pump to deal with water entering our basement. Nathan explained the process clearly and thoroughly in an initial consultation. We were given advance notice of the start date and the work was done in a timely fashion. The team that undertook the work was polite and careful to clean up after each stage of the work was finished. They took the initiative in moving some plants for us and ensured that minor repairs to woodwork, etc. were done after the foundation work was completed. We no longer have water coming in during thunderstorms and the sump pump is working well. We would definitely recommend this company!

Hello Mary,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our work. And I'm very happy to hear the new waterproofing system and drainage with the new driveway are working as they should with the latest week of rain.

All the best!
