Foundation Crack Repair

Great service from start to finish. Dropped by on a Saturday to check out the issue, confirmed what needed to be done, and provided a detailed estimate within 48 hrs. Excellent communication on timeline, and the job was done thoroughly and professionally in two days. Couldn't be happier with the crew - friendly, knowledgeable, and left an immaculate work area between the two days of work. When they were done you couldn't even tell they had been there - house was exactly as they found it. Highly recommended.

In the spring there was some water seeping into the basement of my 40 year old house. Waterproofing the north side now became a necessity. Fast forward, the work has been done and Dave Marcotte and his caring, competent team exceeded my expectations. The waterproofing of my block foundation home now has coating of water repellent, styrofoam insulation, a barrier ..., a flawless parging job, an appealing finish of evenly laid river rock, and soil that is graded away from the house. (and a sump pump system that won't leave me dreading the next spring thaw). Dave's team kept me informed of the daily work, and answered all my questions with patience and reassurance. They were considerate of my 2 german shepherds who felt compelled to supervise them and enticed them to play fetch at every opportunity. They still look out the laneway hoping for their white trucks to pull in. I am grateful that I chose a team that takes pride in their work and where integrity still matters.

Breathing new life into elderly foundation walls . . .

My intention here is to make yet more obvious why the experience of hundreds of reviewers before me have inspired such universal acclaim for the work of Dave Marcotte Foundations.

Last winter, one early morning during a thaw, I heard water running somewhere in the basement. Knowing I had not left a tap open, I feared the worst and the worst was soon realized. Water was pouring through two of my window casements into my finished basement.

During the protracted cleanup, mould was discovered on the subfloor so, in addition to the leaking windows, the foundation itself must have been leaking water behind the drywall, under the rug and onto the subfloor for perhaps a number of years. I would need a company well-experienced in foundation and sump-pump rehabilitation. Also needed: four window wells.

Dave Marcotte Foundations was the last of the companies from whom an estimate was requested. Dave's was by far the highest-rated company but his estimate was more than reasonable compared to those of others and so I committed to Dave with a modest down payment. The only downside in doing so was that I was also committing to a rather long wait before the work could find a place in his schedule. (It should go without saying that Dave's hard-earned, solid reputation has left him much-in-demand.) I didn't mind in the least waiting for work from a company who had inspired such confidence.

The crew of 5 guys showed up the first week in September 2019 and the work was finished within 4 days. The work order had been detailed and every point on it was satisfied completely before his crew pulled out. Even if you've never had such work done, digging up a foundation is understood to be disruptive and possibly chaotic. Dave's workers were focused, systematic, and disciplined throughout, minimizing disruption. After the work was completed, the site was left in pristine condition, and I must admit, much better than they'd found it.

As should by now be clear, my endorsement of Dave Marcotte Foundations is as full-throated and whole-hearted as I can possibly make it. Should you need assistance with a foundation issue, Dave and his crew will not disappoint.

Sincerely,

Foundation repair

My neighbor and I had the side of our house dug up in order to fix and reinforce our foundation to hopefully prevent future leaks. The guys showed up early every day and the job was completed in a timely professional manner. No leaks in the basement will mean a great job done.

Foundation Repair

We had a critical situation which needed immediate attention. This on the recommendation of the engineers we brought in to assess the foundation. Dave, despite being booked until October (This was in early June.), brought his crew in immediately and got the work done. The engineers upon review of the work, gave a glowing report. We are grateful to Dave and would recommend him to anyone who requires foundation work. Dave is a true professional in every sense of the word.

Waterproofing

Had a weeping tile replacement, foundation waterproofing and sump pit installed. Not the cheapest quote, but not the most expensive, and by far the most thorough. Professional, knowledgeable, organized, friendly, great crew, great communication. Would give them 10 stars out of 5. Will hire them to do the rest of the house!!

Foundation Crack, Blocked Driveway Drain & Catch Basin

Dave Marcotte and his team are AMAZING! They have a high level of expertise and are very professional. VERY competitive price and HE WILL NOT RIP YOU OFF! Very trustworthy and honest, which is great when you are dealing with these kinds of costly repairs.

We were selling our house in 2018 and wanted to fix our foundation crack, fix our driveway drain and catch basin, get a new garage floor and new driveway. We contacted other companies for quotes and our overall experience with Dave Marcotte’s company was by far the best.

Dave Marcotte Foundations gave us a free written estimate for the
work that needed to be done. There was a crack between the garage and house foundation. They repaired the crack and installed a
waterproof membrane. Our driveway drain seemed blocked, so, they had to dig the side of the foundation 12 feet to the main pipe to see what the problem was. The weeping tiles had collapsed. They installed
a new drain and catch basin. Because some of this work could not be determined until they dug and the problem(s) was confirmed, there was an extra charge, which was very fair and reasonable! All possibilities were discussed in great detail prior to any work commencing! If there is any unforeseen work, which is possible, they will not rip you off! They work hard and do quality work in a MINIMAL amount of time. All of Dave’s team are amazing and go above and beyond to make for a great work experience. They leave the place clean. HIGHLY recommend! They are busy though so don’t know what the wait time is?

Dave recommended an excellent and reputable paving company to do our new garage floor and driveway. They provided us with a free written estimate. We also got 2 other estimates, which varied greatly in work and price! We went ahead with Dave’s recommendation and were VERY pleased with their work, etc.. Times were coordinated perfectly between the two companies!

Urethane Injection (Foundation Crack Repair)

I had a crack in my foundation which needed to be repaired. Dave confirmed that it could be repaired with a urethane injection and provided a fast estimate which was within my budget.

The work was scheduled quickly, performed on time and Shane did a great job with the repair.

I am happy with the overall experience and wouldn't hesitate to give them a call the next time I need work done.

Foundation work

Dave's crew did a fantastic job on my foundation. They were incredibly efficient and very conscientious. I was surprised at how quickly they were able to get the job done, but they did not cut corners. They went out of their way to make sure that any shrubs or plants that were dug up were not destroyed and could be replanted once everything had been backfilled. Marcotte foundations was very cost competitive when I was seeking quotes and they just offered more bang for my buck. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to have foundation work done.

Foundation crack repair

Great service from Dave Marcotte Foundations. Dave came to the house and helped us to determine the best method to repair a crack in the foundation. Dave provided a prompt digital quote, invoice and receipt. We decided on an interior repair and Dave’s technician completed the repair promptly and professionally.
Dave referred us to an experienced contractor who opened the wall to expose the crack in the foundation and closed it back after the repair.
I would highly recommend Dave Marcotte Foundations. Dave provided a transferable guarantee on the crack repair.
