Foundation crack injection

It was a pleasure to work with Dave on this project. Quick responses. Clear written estimate. Work scheduled quickly, showed up on time, did a great job. Smooth payment/receipt process. Totally professional operation. Hope to not have more foundation cracks in my future, but if I do, I will be calling Dave.

Basement Foundation Crack

We found water leak in the basement. I contacted Dave. He was very helpful in assessing the issue and recommending the solutions. Both Dave and Mirko were fantastic. Mirko came to remove drywall and was able to identify the crack and Dave sealed the crack the following day. The turnaround time from contacting Dave to job well done was amazingly fast (within 2 days)!
I am very pleased with the work that was done professional and quickly.
Dave was very professional, responsive, knowledgeable and efficient.
I would highly recommend DM Foundation for their work and service!

Basement foundation repair

Dave was absolutely wonderful. He came to give me a quote of the job. Super friendly, and easy to talk to. Gave me a written quote within a few hours, and we scheduled the job less then two weeks later. He arrived when he said he would, was done within a few hours, job site left perfectly clean.

I would absolutely highly recommend him for any basement foundation repairs in future.

Basement waterproofing

We hired Dave Marcotte Foundations to help us with a moisture issue in our basement. We had talked to our neighbours who all highly recommended Dave Marcotte and we are so glad we took their advice. Dave came to the house and walked us through the issues that were happening in our basement and it was clear that he knew what he was talking about. The work was completed on time and on budget and the crew did an excellent job. Thanks!

Basement solidifying and waterproofing

After buying our home in 2018, we got Dave and Jesse to come take a look at the foundation and basement. They were punctual, friendly and honest throughout. We ultimately decided to wait a couple of years to do this work. We’re now 2021 and in October I reached out to Dave about getting the work done in the spring of 2022. Dave was quick to respond and even called me at 8pm after sending an email with various questions. He updated my quote and got me in his 2022 schedule to do exterior waterproofing.

This past week (December 2021) Jesse installed Fortress stabilization straps on my basement walls. The guys did an great job and work hard to get it done in a day. We’re very happy with Dave Marcotte Foundations and will definitely recommend when possible.

Install sump pump

We had Dave Marcotte Foundations come in to assess water leakage in our basement. It was determined that a second sump pump would help to alleviate this problem. The workmen arrived on time and in one day had installed a new sump pump. The job was completed and they removed cement and dirt leaving no mess as they had prepared the work area with carpets from the front door to the basement. My wife and I highly recommend Dave Marcotte Foundations.

Basement crack sealing

I hired Dave to fix a crack in my foundation wall, and both he and Shane were fantastic. Dave did the estimate while Shane fixed the wall. Shane was able to come by two days after I asked for the quote, and finished within two hours. I've also used Dave's company to fix my garage foundation and slab, and I have nothing but good things to say. I'll be using Dave's company for all of my concrete and structural needs in the future.

Foundation Repair, two contracts

This is the second time I request foundation repair services from Dave Marcotte Foundations; so I am a repeat and very satisfies customer. In both instances, the required repairs on west side (year 2017 for $11,300) and south side (year 2021 for $13,100) of the building were clearly explained and cost proposals were made. The works started and finished on time. The crew were highly trained and well equipped to carry out the job. They completed the work in a highly satisfactory manner. The crew were pleasant, courteous and organized. The job site was cleaned up after the completion. I highly recommend Dave Marcotte Foundations. people needing such services.

Foundation cutting & window well services for 2 egress windows

I spent time researching various company's on the Internet and settled on Dave Marcotte Foundations. I contacted Dave for a site visit to discuss my project and provide us with a detailed quote. I took the liberty to contact alternates but liked Dave's no-nonsense approach and professionalism. He helped us understand the job scope, details and also qualified the item costs

Dave and his team did an excellent job start-to-finish, and left our home in a better condition than they found it! A fine example of the quality of the work you can expect if you hire Dave Marcotte for your next project

Would highly recommend this company

Egress Window

I really didn't know where to start when it came to putting an egress window into the foundation of my home, but man, I'm glad I came across Dave's company during my internet search.

Not only did he reply with an estimate, he outlined the entire procedure, even recommending me other contractors for each step (ie. engineer, window installer, etc).

For every question I asked throughout the entire process, he had an answer and was sure to point out which direction he felt we should go in order to complete the job correctly.

When it came time to do the job, he and his crew were extremely professional, making sure I was happy every step of the way.

The window turned out fantastic and I couldn't be happier. Dave and his crew were exceptional and I would recommend their services whole-heartedly.
