Foundation

Dave Marcotte sure knows all there is to know about foundations! We are very pleased with the foundation work he completed at our house. All of the work was done in an efficient manner and was done on schedule. We have been doing a lot of work and renovations on our house over the last 5 years ourselves (mostly) so it was really nice to hire an experienced and highly recommended contractor to come in and complete a huge job in less than a week's time. Dave's knowledge about foundations, his professionalism, his honesty and easy going nature were all huge selling points for us when choosing a company to do this work. Our two young children also enjoyed watching all of the foundation work being done and all of the different equipment(e.g. stone slinger) that were used. None of the crew smoked which we also truly appreciated. Dave is very well connected to other excellent and experienced contractor's too (e.g. parging experts, window experts) which was also very helpful to us. Thanks again Dave and crew members including Mirko and the window guy (I apologize for not remembering your name...) for a job well done!

Sincerely,
Kim Ostapyk and Lee Duncan

Foundation repair for water leakage into basement

Dave Marcotte's company performed the work as per the written agreement. He and his team are very professional and delivered the agreed upon finish product on time and on budget. They completed the work a day early to be exact. He explained everything at the and wrote up the estimate as per our discussion. There were no surprises at all during the work. They are very accomodating to questions as the work is being completed. As a homeowner I felt I received a first class job and service. I would have them back to do more work in the future if I required any foundation work. Excellent work ethic and great price compared to other companies.

Basement foundation repair

Dave and his team did a fantastic job on our basement foundation repair. Our block foundation began to leak in the spring and after getting four quotes from different companies, we found Dave Marcotte Foundation to be the most competitive. His experienced and highly capable team had the job completed within a few days. Dave and his team were very professional and took the time to explain the process, the materials he was using and why. This allowed us to make informed decisions throughout the project. We are very pleased with the quality and timeliness of the work Dave and his team completed. We highly recommend Dave Marcotte Foundations.

Fix Leaking Block Basement

We found water seeping through the front wall of our 43 year old block basement. After discussing with Dave Marcotte it was decided the proper remedy was to excavate the front wall to the footing, apply a rubberized coating, a "platon" membrane, new drain tile and backfill with 3/4" stone. 2" styrofoam was also added to give better frost protection. To do this work meant removing and replacing a considerable amount of interlocking stone.

Dave and his workers showed up right on time and worked steadily even though the weather was very hot. The job was completed in 2.5 days, including replacing the interlocking stone and a thorough cleanup of the area! My wife and I were amazed at how efficiently things were done.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dave to anyone needing foundation work.

Thanks again Dave, Greg and Shane.

foundation repair/waterproofing

Dave and his crew were professional from beginning to end. The work was completed in approximately one week and they left the site clean and ready to be landscaped.

Dave answered all of my questions (and those of my neighbours!) willingly and thoroughly .

I highly recommend his company for any foundation repairs.

Small water leak in basement

We found a small water leak under a basement window this Spring and we called 4 companies. Three of them came and could not find any cracks nor figure out where the water came from. However all three of them told us our weeping tile system was defective since it's common in houses built around 1950. They gave us quotes ranging from 5,000$ to 20,000 +.
Dave came to check the problem and he told us our weeping tiles were fine since the water was coming from the top of the wall. He suggested to monitor the situation for another Spring or two since this wall was not in a finished room and the leak was minor in order to be able to tell where the water was coming from. I will do as he said and if further problems arise will call him first and not waste my time with companies overselling their products. And by comparison, his quote for a window well repair is 1,800$.

Weeping tile installation and foundation waterproofing/insulation

It was a pleasure working with Dave Marcotte Foundations...I recommend the company without hesitation. They came when they promised, did what they promised, and finished when they promised (earlier, in fact, despite bad weather), and they minimized the inconvenience for neighbours. Dave was knowledgeable, practical, skilled, and helpful. His guys were just as good. The project could have been a nightmare with a less ethical team, so I count myself fortunate to have had Dave Marcotte Foundations.

Foundation Crack Fix

When I discovered a crack in my basement foundation, I wanted it to be fixed as soon as possible and done properly. After calling several companies, I found that they all did about the same thing: what I call the "quick and dirty" method for roughly the same price. When I finally got a hold of Dave, he explained his procedure which is exactly the procedure I was looking for. Better yet, his price was the same (in some cases better) than the competitors! Dave is very pleasant to talk to, very organized and his crew is outstanding. I would definitely recommend Dave to anyone who needs the same foundation fix.

Foundation Inspection

We contacted Dave Marcotte to do our foundation inspection for the sale of a home in Arlington Woods. Despite being extremely busy he showed up on time & did a thorough inspection of the foundation and was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable in his field. We very much appreciated his help & will be recommending him to our future clientele.
