Great Job

We had an amazing experience working with Colm. He started his work on time as promised and finished it within time. His approach is very professional and did a very excellent job of waterproofing my basement from outside. I highly recommend him. 10/10.

Basement ceiling leakage

I called Act Fast Waterproofing to assess the water damage in my basement ceiling. Colm showed up the same day to look at the issue and then he told me that my basement leak would need to be addressed and fixed from the exterior of my basement and it would not fall under any of the services he offers, however, he still took his time to give me recommendations on who to call and how this leak problem could be fixed. On top of that, he also quickly fixed the side of my house where some waterproofing material started to come off. Thank you for your time, Colm. I wished I had called you to waterproof my basement prior to finishing it.

Basement waterproofing

I can't say enough positive about this company. I needed waterproof my basement so I contacted 3 companies for quotes. Colm showed up when he said he would. He took time to actually looked at the work that needed to be done. Then took the time to explain what was needed and what he would be doing. We scheduled a day for the work to be done. I the discovered another problem that would put waterproofing behind a couple of weeks. Colm told me not to worry about it that he will reschedule. He showed up when he said he would. The work started immediately. His crew are hard working and very respectful. When the work was finished the clean up was great and the job was done perfectly. I can't thank Colm and his crew enough. Worth every penny.

100% recommend!

Colm and team did an awesome job waterproofing the side exterior of our house. Colm is especially a pleasure to work with, always responding quickly, providing detailed information for the job, and ensuring we are satisfied with the work. He was on-site himself and always made sure we knew what to expect. He left the site with no mess when it was complete. He was also very fair with pricing and even reduced the total slightly when the work was easier than expected.

Interior waterproofing and sump pump installation

Colm and the Act Fast team were excellent and I am very happy that I chose them to perform my indoor waterproofing and sump pump installation. They were effortless to engage with, professional, punctual and offered a competitive price. It is clear that Colm takes pride in his work. I appreciated that Colm is an owner-operator, and he performs some of the work himself. After delivering the quote, he doesn’t send out a team, which differentiated him from many other highly rated competitors. Colm explained what was required and even educated me on potential areas where others could cut corners to save a few dollars. He offers a 25-year warranty and has supported me in applying for the City of Toronto sump pump rebates. If you require indoor or outdoor waterproofing, I highly recommend contacting Act Fast Waterproofing.

Waterproofing, Weeping Tile , Sump Pump , Benching

Colm is the best contractor I have ever worked with, from the first call, to the first visit, humoring my overly talkative father during the quote and process he's been polite, fast to respond , honest about what should be done and what isn't worth the cost and straight forward with more than fair pricing.

I couldn't even get other companies to commit to doing the work this year or commit to a time to come quote the job , Colm was at my house the day after my first call and started work within 2 weeks of me giving the go ahead to the job.

Job was done immaculately, job site was left clean, he checked in with me several times throughout the project to confirm where they were progress wise, ask me questions about what we wanted when he ran into choices to make , the work quality was immaculate ( especially the benching to lower the basement ) and worked with my plumber when he found an issue with the outside drain to point out the issue to them, and work with and around them.

When the work was done, he provided instructions and a perfectly itemized bill to get rebates for the weeping tile and sump pump from the city

If you are looking for waterproofing, this is your guy , I happily have his sign out front of my house, and would recommend him to absolutely anyone who needs any type of waterproofing

Cheers
