Foundation repair, sump pump upgrade, Kevlar installation

After several estimates, the knowledge, confidence and friendly approach of Dave convinced me to choose Marcotte Foundations. It was an excellent choice. With all four sides of the house needing to be dug up, I was understandably nervous. I had no reasons to be! Dave and his crew were efficient , careful, considerate of my comings and goings...from the materials used, the time well spent, cleanup...I could go on and on. Thanks to Dave and his crew - I live without any concerns about water in the basement!
FYI...Dave was also the only contractor to wear his mask when he came to discuss my project :)

Foundation repairs

Dave Marcotte dug out a around a corner of my house to repair a leak 3 years ago. Dug to the footings and repaired the foundation from outside. They cleaned up the site so you’d never notice. It’s been dry as a bone ever since. I called him this year because there was a leak in a different corner. He was able to fix it from inside by injecting urethane at low pressure. Looks great and has a 10 year guarantee.

Foundation Crack Repair

Water leaking in basement bathroom, contacted Dave Marcotte, asked that we take a few photos to send to him and then within a couple of days was at the house to take a look. Advised what he recommended in terms of crack repair, then waited about a week for his supplies to come in. He was able to fix the crack, have had lots of warm weather and snow melt since and no water has come in. Would highly recommend, he was very responsive, knowledgeable and efficient.
Thanks very much Dave.

Foundation crack

Dave was quick to come by our house to identify the issue and offer a solution. Once the materials arrived, the two cracks were filled by Jesse. They did an excellent job, and finished the project in a timely manner. Highly recommended!

Sump pump connection and foundation crack repair

Due to builders' lack of knowledge when my house was built 4 years ago, I had flooding in my basement. Dave was very helpful in diagnosing the issues causing the flooding and recommending the solutions. He has now completed the repairs and everything is very well done. On top of it, Dave is fantastic to deal with and the guys working with him were very friendly and courteous. I cannot recommend Dave highly enough!

Crack repairs, external waterproofing, etc.

This summer and fall Dave and his guys filled a number of cracks we discovered as we were renovating the basement, investigated water drainage issues, waterproofed, and repaired a poorly installed underground eavestrough drain. This was not our first dealing with Dave. He had done some waterproofing for us about 10 years ago, and a big job for my parents including installation of a sump pump about 3-4 years. We didn't even consider calling anyone else. Some of the guys that work for him today were working for him 10 years ago. He obviously treats them well, and everyone from the top down is courteous and conscientious. I highly recommend Dave Marcotte Foundations.

Damp proofing, insulation, weeping tile,

Both our arborist and engineer recommended Dave, so we went with him. It is quite the operation tbh - the dump truck and bins allow him to haul away earth very quickly (2 days), the damp proofing, insulation and backfill was done in a week. The following week the parging was completed, brought soil back to grade and our lives got back to normal. Dave replaced our lead pipe and when I called him about the garden water connection extension he was there bright and early on a Saturday, no complaints. Dave and his crew were a pleasure to have around the house. I have worked on crews before and these guys were not your typical construction crew, nice, polite, professional. I am happy to recommend them and we are very happy with the work.

New basement egress window

After a foundation crack was filled, I decided to install an egress window, mainly to allow more light into the basement recreation room.

Due to covid, it took a while for things to get going, but, after getting a call on a Sunday afternoon, the wheels went into motion. Monday morning, a team was there to dig a trench and clear out the space for the window including a sub-contracted company coming in to cut the concrete in order to make room for the new window. On day two, the window was installed and the soil and grass were replaced as well as a steel guard to support the trench. Other than waiting for the window installer to come and fix a gap on the upper exterior of the window, everything appears to be 99% complete.

Dave Marcotte Foundations

The problem with the house/garage foundation was assessed and I was given a description of what need to be done, when work was to begin and the cost.
All materials were brought in and work started on the date agreed on.
Everyone from the company was courteous and work was finished on time without any disruption to our household. Site was left neat and clean.
Very satisfied with the work and professionalism of all concerned .

Foundation Crack repair

After heavy rains couple of months ago we found a very small water leak in our basement. After examination we found a very fine crack in the exterior of the foundation wall. We called 3 companies that do foundation repairs for quotes and finally selected Dave Marcotte Foundation. Our selection was based on their professionalism in dealing with the client and their prompt response to many of our questions in a satisfactory manner. Their crew members Ryan and Lyndon were very professional, Courteous and pleasant to deal with. They did an excellent job finished the project on time as well as cleaned up all of the working area. We highly recommend Dave Marcotte Foundation repair company.
