Couldn't be Happier with Abarent

First time home buyers - Abarent made a potentially overwhelming situation for us very easy.

Crack in the foundation discovered in inspection:
Abarent was available within 48 hours for a complete inspection of the foundation. Everything explained openly and transparently.

Home owners insurance company withheld groundwater and sewage backup insurance until crack was fixed:
Abarent fit us in within 8 days of possession.

Foundation repaired without ANY concerns:
Everything was explained openly and transparently; all questions were answered thoroughly by the crew.

Above and beyond expectations:
Without solicitation, the crew left the stone and rock to be returned to the original location of the crack laid out in order of how we should replace it - incredibly thoughtful!!

Foundation wall repair

We were happy with the detailed explanation that Abarent gave us before the job started and their competitive quote. They were able to come out a lot earlier than we expected, completed the job in a very reasonable amount of time and then cleaned up nicely upon completion.

Foundation Repair

This is our second home that has required the services of Abarent. Both of our experiences with them have been above and beyond. They know how to get the job done right and customer is excellent. Nobody wants to need foundation repair but if you do, Abarent is the company to do it

Weeping tile and sump pump

Leaky basement needed fixing before a renovation. Abarent Construction provided repair options and a competitive quote. The work was done quickly and the crew was courteous. Very happy with the work so far.

Cracked & leaking foundation repair

I had always suspected the previous homeowner had done a foundation repair job on one wall of our St. Albert home. A melting late-spring snowfall and then constant rain confirmed that the repair had failed and started to leak again behind a bathroom wall. After cutting out drywall, Travis (from Abarent) and I confirmed that it seemed to be a poorly done job, apparently done repaired from the inside. Because the bathroom wall & shower obscured the view of the whole crack, we could not tell if it had been completely repaired. We agreed that an outside repair was the best way to fix the problem long-term.
Abarent was very busy with such a wet spring and unfortunately took a month to schedule the work. Then they had to reschedule for a few days later because they wanted to have a full crew to do the repair as quickly as possible once the digging started. Because there was a power line about 1 meter from the wall, the 25ft. of foundation had to be dug by hand! Once the Abarent crew started digging, they had the foundation dug in a few hours...very hard working crew! The cracks were sealed, the new sump pump was installed and the new tar-like waterproof membrane was applied that day. The next morning, after the membrane had set, the crew returned and applied the Styrofoam protection boards and filled the excavation back in with washed gravel. Then they did a good job of cleaning up the whole jobsite.
Travis returned late that day to inspect the job, answer my questions and replace the plastic bathroom vent hood that had been broken during the job.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the work done, the diligence and speed of the work crew, the comprehensive information package accompanying the quote, the level of communication and the clean-up. The only thing that could have been better was to get the work started sooner, but the weather was a factor in Abarent having a prolonged schedule. Also, be aware that until it dries completely there is a chemical smell to the waterproof membrane, but that fades over a few days.

foundation repairs

Abarent replaced a section of weeping tile in my 40 year old home. Travis went over everything in detail with me. Staff were professional and quick. Highly recommend this company!

Foundation Repair and Window Well Installation

Over the past 5 years my wife and I have worked with many contractors as we have been renovating our home. Our experience with Abarent Construction was outstanding. The quotation process was punctual and professional. Once we decided to proceed with the work, Travis communicated with us regularly. the work was done on time with no issues. The crew demonstrated excellent teamwork and cleaned the worksite at the end of each day. Very positive experience.

Foundation Wall Repair

We can not say enough about the experience we had with Abarent. Everything was exactly as it should have been, right from the first phone call to the office and speaking with Nancy (one of the most incredibly kind and helpful company representatives I have ever had the pleasure of encountering) to meeting Kevin for the quotation through to the end of the project. Not only was the quotation reasonable but along with the quote we received a packet filled with information of what a property owner should consider when hiring a foundation company from all of the questions that need to be asked to the references that need to be checked. The incredible professionalism from Kevin and his team was beyond what we had expected. The crew came in and treated our property as if it was their own. They took great care to cover the lawn so as not to damage it with their machinery. They excavated the entire side of the apartment building down to the foundation floor and every step of the repair was completed properly (we received a detailed step by step manifest of the work to be done). The job was finished in two days and they cleaned up everything so thoroughly that you would never even know they were there. Every single member of the crew was exceptionally polite and respectful. I visited the site often and every one of them was fantastically knowledgable about what they were doing not to mention very patient with me and willing to answer all of my questions (and I had many!). I only regret that I did not get all of their names because they absolutely deserve mention. The two that I do know was Andy and Jim but all of them were wonderful. So in conclusion, if it is not already obvious, I absolutely recommend Abarent and would never hesitate to use them again.
Thank you again Abarent for a job well done!

Job Well Done!

Abarent was great to work with. The crew were all professional and hard working. They did the job proficiently and did a fantastic job at cleaning up the yard each day and at the end of the project. I would definitely recommend them to family and friends.
