My foundation had split and was endangering my home. Eric fixed it.

Due to subsidence my foundation had split endangering my 700K home. Eric did an excellent job on time and on price. He was not the cheapest bid but clearly the best one. Good to work with, he kept us informed at all times and his workers were top notch. During the construction the site was safe and clean every day. I am pleased to give Eric a strong recommendation. He and his staff were professional at all times .

Foundation Repair

After consulting three companies for the repair of two foundational cracks, Eric’s professionalism, in-depth knowledge, experience and confidence in his staff impressed us. From the initial meeting, Eric provided a clear explanation of the repair, kept us informed and introduced us to the Team Lead (Scott). The Team was extremely efficient, hard working, professional, provided quality work and cleaned up the work area. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Eric’s Concrete & Masonry Services Ltd for any foundational repair work.

Garage foundation

I had a large tree on my property whose roots undermined the garage foundation. Eric knew what had to be done, clearly explained it, answered all my questions, and provided an itemized and thorough written statement of work.

Eric and his crew did an excellent and professional job of excavating inside and outside the garage, stabilizing the garage foundation and fixing cracks, raising the garage end of the house to make the house level again, backfilling, and pouring a new and properly-sloped garage floor.

Basement waterproofing and weeping tile

After consulting with multiple companies about our foundation and constantly running sump pump, the choice was clear: Eric's Concrete.

Eric was thorough, professional and clear about the options and what the work would entail. The detailed information that was provided (as well as confidence in the result), made the decision to go ahead with our large project obvious.

Eric assisted throughout the planning process, with recommendations and advice about all facets of the work (including work not done by his team).

When the work started, it was on budget, on time, and as promised. The crew was excellent, as was the end result.

With many heavy rains (seasonal and not), we are completely satisfied with out choice, and happy to not have to worry about any issues around, or under, our foundation.

I'd recommend Eric without any reservations.

Foundation

When you are investing so much in your home (for us over 32 years) it was a pleasure to meet Eric and dealing with his Company and team. From day one of our meeting being comfortable and a feeling of trust was important to us, and it was there.

His staff/team was extremely professional, punctual and went out of their way to satisfy our and our neighbours concerns.

Always explain details of report findings that we could understand.

We chose Eric's Concrete from more than one referral and we would also join and also refer his Company and team!

Foundation repair

I would highly recommend Eric's Concrete to anyone needing foundational repair work done. He is very knowledgable, professional and the work came in under budget. He's warrantied his work and we feel very comfortable knowing the work has been done properly. His crew dug about 8 feet down in 2 spots outside and you can't even tell they were there. Thank you Eric and team!

Repairing Deteriorating Basement Concrete

A few years ago, it became obvious that we needed work done on our house's deteriorating foundation. After reviewing the credentials and bids of several contractors, we settled on Eric and his team. One of the reasons was that he had experience doing concrete work on bridges and industrial sites ... far more demanding uses than typical residential requirements.

Eric was meticulous and methodical. He examined our foundation and explained in layman's terms the scope of the work to be done - a completely new foundation for the most damaged of the original foundation and a repair of the remaining foundation, along with the necessary reinforcement and waterproofing. His in-depth knowledge, extensive experience and thorough explanations were reassuring, whereas other prospective contractors offered only vagaries.

Eric and his team ‎worked everyday for five weeks to get the job done. At the end of each day, they cleaned and tidied the worksite as well as reinforced areas where structural support was still warranted. Eric was always willing to answer any questions that we had. He dealt with all aspects of the work, including dealing with the City of Ottawa inspectors and any permits that were required.

Without question, we recommend Eric's Concrete for any foundation work you may have. In fact, we have already done so with a couple of our neighbors and friends whose houses have foundations similar to our own. We now rest easy knowing that - with the help of Eric and his team - our house rests on a solid foundation.

Hello Brad. I am very pleased to hear of your satisfaction and trust with the work my team provided for your home. It is very important to me to ensure the most efficient methods are taken to allow you to enjoy your home and not have to worry about the stability of your foundation. With the waterproofing, it will also help prevent any unforeseen damage now that we have made the necessary repairs and reinforcements. I wish you the best. Sincerely, Eric Pietryka, Owner.

foundation's waterproofing and insulation

We have chosen Eric's company to waterproof and insulate our older home. It was the best possible decision and by far the best team we had to this day. We asked many questions; Eric made sure we were satisfied with all his answers and suggestions. We also requested several additional works and changes to the initial agreement. Eric advices reflected his in-depth knowledge and we were confident that he gave them in our best interest. For example, we wanted to use 4 inches insulation boards instead of the usual 2 inches ones. Eric suggested to stay with 2 inches considering the cost, we agreed at first than changed our mind two days later and decided to go for 4 inches ones. Eric not only has found the required longer fasteners, but he also tested them prior to the installation. We knew then that we were in good hands. Eric was frequently on the job site to make sure everything was going according to the plan even if his foreman Richard proved to be able to oil-run his experienced and competent team. Only to be expected as some work together for years. Team was always on time, the work was advancing smoothly, the job site was cleaned each day and the excavations protected by the fence. We were particularly impressed by the excavations, a piece of art by its precision. Eric and his team have taken care of our home as if it was a two-million dollar residence. We felt as millionaires not only because they were competent but because we felt that they wished to do us good through their work and they haven't hesitated to go beyond expectations in order to satisfy us. Thank you.

Foundation replacement and repair

When we first had a flood in our basement last summer and discovered that the foundation of our nearly 100 year old home was on its last legs, we were distraught with the news. Then we met Eric - and everything changes. He had come highly recommended from neighbours who had worked with him in the past. With his reassuring manner, his in-depth knowledge and extensive experience, he examined our foundation and explained in layman's terms the scope of the work to be done - a completely new foundation for the most damaged of the original river stone foundation and a repair of the remaining foundation, along with the necessary waterproofing.

The work began ahead of schedule and came in on budget and on time. Eric's team of extremely professional and competent experts ‎worked everyday for three weeks at our house to get the job done. At the end of each day, they cleaned the worksite - even washing the sidewalk, so that our house and property were spotless, despite the messy nature of the work. Eric was always willing to answer any questions that we had and was always reachable by phone. He dealt with all aspects of the work, including dealing with the City of Ottawa inspectors and all the permitting that was necessary.

We can unequivocally recommend Eric's Concrete for any foundation work you may have. In fact, we have already recommended them to our neighbours, many of whom walked by our house during and after the construction and noticed the quality job his team accomplished.

Hiring Eric's Concrete was the best decision we could have made to ensure the continued well-being of our home. We can sleep in peace knowing that our foundation is solid and we will never have to worry about it again.

Thank you Eric!
