Crack Repair Excavation

We had some leaking in our basement earlier this year and after contacting Dave Marcotte and sending some pictures they pointed out a clear crack on the side of the house. We contracted them and they did a fantastic job to repair the crack (and also a second one that they found while on site). This is a great company which I will recommend to all. Here are a few reasons why:
1. They communicated very clearly from the beginning when then can start the project and respected the start date and the timeline. Once they started they communicated every step and also took pictures and emailed them to me so I could follow up with my insurance company.
2. They did a fantastic job in excavating the side of the house and repairing a deep crack that went all the way to the base of the foundation.
3. On day 1 of the project, the team noticed a second crack that I had missed. I asked them to excavate and repair that one too (also from outside of the house since the inside of the basement is insulated with spray foam).
4. They took the second crack into account when billing and I qualified for some discount (due to multiple crack excavations).
5. They excavated both cracks really deep and filled the deep cracks all the way down to the base of the foundation. Also guaranteed their work (all waterproofing) for 25 years!
6. They put the interlock (that they had to remove) back very nicely
7. They cleaned after their work was completed.
8. The crew was a good size (4 individuals) so the work got done really fast and efficient
9. Everyone was very professional
10. Oh and they did not damage our lawn with their machines and equipment!
I don't typically write reviews and this might be is the first one I've every wrote for a company. I do this because I value the work that was done and I know that homeowners look for a company they can trust. I hope this review will help homeowners in their selection. You will not regret hiring Dave Marcotte Foundations.

Foundation Crack Repair

I was extremely impressed with Dave Marcotte Foundations. They went above and beyond when taking the time to explain the issues and brought in a structural engineer who did the same. This provided us with piece of mind, as anxious new home owners. Beyond this, the work was done with limited interruptions (key when working from home and with a new baby) and the end product looks good!

We have some more foundation work that we're looking to do next summer and are hoping Dave's crew will be able to help us out again.

Great, honest work

I had a nontrivial foundation repair request and Dave did a great job undertaking the work. Other contractors either quoted me absurd amounts or simply refused to do the work. Dave and his team were respectful of my property and returned it to original. I especially appreciated him breaking down how the work was going to be executed and what to expect. Would definitely recommend for foundation repair.

Foundation, window well repair

The guys were efficient, on time and did a great job. I was impressed with the quality of their work and the fact that the job took 2 days. Once done, they cleaned up and everything looks great.

Crack in foundation

Dave came to our house in fall of 2021 to inspect a crack in the parging at our house. He booked to do the excavation and repair early spring. They came the week promised, did the work they had outlined and fixed the crack. Everything was done in a few days and done well. Workers kept the work area clean and safe and were excellent to deal with. Communication was good throughout.

Basement lowering and waterproofing

We hired Dave Marcotte Foundations to lower our basement and waterproof our 100 year old foundation. Dave and his team were honest and highly communicative throughout the process. The work was completed ahead of schedule and on budget. They are experienced with old homes in our neighbourhood so we had no surprises.

We highly recommend them!

Basement Window Enlargement and Addition

After quite a bit of research, quotes and due diligence, we choose to go with DM Foundations for our Basement Window Enlargement and addition project.
We really enjoyed the process working with Dave and his team. The whole onsite team ran by Jesse was as professional and polite it could get.

Ours was a large project with 3 windows 55x49 each with all the engineering requirements which comes with this kind of project. Everything was done on time and professionally in span of 5 working days.
We are really happy with the final results and will highly recommend Dave and his team to anyone looking for this kind of work.
