The Best Foundation Expert!

This is a much-delayed review. Our project was a mission impossible, we had a basement crawl space in a century old home, there were no footing, the new concrete walls were all newly built by Chico's extremely hardworking team. There were a giant rock hiding in the crawl space, Chico's team went all out and eventually got it out of the way. Because our home is located in downtown Toronto, the concrete truck couldn't came through our narrow alleyway, hence the team had to manually mixing concrete. It was definitely one of most challenging and difficult project for Chico and the team, but they made it and built us a brand new basement unit! They're detail oriented, generous, professional, and have great work ethic! We're forever grateful to Chico and his team, wish you also have the opportunity to work with them. Thank you so much Chico and the team! Highly recommended anytime!

Basement Dig, Waterproofing & quick removal of P-Trap

Aquashield Chico & team are the best waterproofs in the GTA! Chico’s experience helped make our 20+ year dream a reality. We have an extra 500sq feet added to our Toronto home. His employees were hardworking and helped make our project meet deadlines. I highly recommend Aquashield.

Porch Stairs Repairs

I had a very damaged porch and stairs with lots of cracks and pieces of concrete missing. Aquashield patched cemented and repaired it like new. They initially said it would take 2 days but ended up spending 5 days because the condition much worse than what they had anticipated and they wanted to produce a quality finish. They were very detailed orientated and worked diligently every day until the project was done. My stairs look awesome. Thank you Aquashield.

Basement basement water leak

Chico was recommended to me by my contractor. him and his crew were awesome to say the least. The job was done in a timely fashion. I had asked Chico for someone to come back and do an extra area and it was done the next day. I am very pleased with the final outcome and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for any basement leak repair/fixing.

New front porch and stairs and full house parging

I would highly recommend Chico and his crew. Chico was suggested by my realtor to provide me with new, wider front stairs with a more comfortable rise along with a small landing. After they started it became apparent that I would be having lovely stairs but my side walls would be old and holey. I asked if we could therefore not only parge the whole house but also refinish the top of my front porch to match the stairs. Then we had it all painted dark custom grey. My stairs are now over a foot wider with an additional step which improved the rise or height of the stairs. Through all this Chico was very patient and accomodating. His crew did a great job, cleaned up the property and Chico was very
responsive to my queries and requests.

Efficient, friendly, and budget conscious

Chico was recommended by my realtor when we realized our new home had never been waterproofed. He was out to see the site quickly, had his men on site working full speed at the agreed date, and completed all the work for exactly what he'd quoted me. They even came back to change one of the window wells to make our gate more accessible.

I will absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs work done.

Basement Underpinning and Walkout

I heard about Chico through a friend. He came out and gave us a quote for the work we wanted. He and his team worked professionally and tirelessly through the winter/spring to complete the job. He was communicative. His team was amazing. Despite a number of unforeseen issues (both with the project and covid related) the project was completed within budget. Chico ensured that he was always available to answer questions.

Foundation repair

I found out I needed foundation work and was trying to figure out where to turn. Chico and his team were working across the street on another project. I had noticed a cement truck coming to the other property several days in a row so I went over and spoke to Chico. He came and looked at my property right away and told me what the cost would be and when he was going to be able to do it. Within a couple days his team was their starting to work, it was completed on time and on budget. I was very satisfied with all aspects of the job he was very quick to respond to all questions and inquiries. I would highly recommend him and his team from Aquashield.

Basement water leak

Called Chico based on his excellent reviews here on Homestars ...he and his team (Ardie) didn't disappoint! Chico was prompt, professional and consultative to what our basement issue might be. He was clear on what might have happened to cause the leak, how we can fix it, costs associated, timelines and next steps. I totally recommend him to anyone who's looking for a professional, efficient and excellent job done---even in the middle of winter!

Basement Waterproofing and Parging

I hired Chico and his crew for two jobs. The first was waterproofing a basement wall from the outside. The job was in a tight space underneath a back porch. His crew did a great job in very tight quarters. The second job was in November 2019 when I had Chico come back to lay a concrete pad around the side of my house and parge the side wall. It looks fantastic. The clean up afterwards was perfect. Chico responds to texts and phone calls immediately and regularly comes out to the job site to make sure everything is going well. He is easy to deal with, fair, reliable and accountable. I would definitely recommend him.

Waterproofing

We have all heard the horror stories. It’s spring. The snow is melting, the rain is heavy and the basement floods. The reasons for a wet, or even damp, basement, can be many. Heavier rainy seasons and milder winters are causing the ground to freeze and thaw several times before spring. This contributes to constant shifts in the ground and wrecks havoc on cracked or weak foundations. As torrential rain downpours become more commonplace, these compromised foundations simply cannot keep the water out. more about wet basements ....

Regardless of the reason for a home’s wet basement, Aquashield Waterproofing will assess each issue and identify the most suitable solution to fix the problem(s). more about Aquashield’s specific waterproofing techniques ...

Foundation Repair

There are many different ways to repair foundations depending on the type of foundation, the source of the problem and the level of damage. In many cases, the foundation wall can be repaired with relatively simple and straight-forward techniques. Depending upon the specifics of the issue and the accessibility of the problem area, repairs can be completed from either the outside or the inside of the residence.

In extreme cases, homeowners may need to consult with a structural engineer to confirm whether a home’s foundation is sound or if the foundation may need to be rebuilt. In other cases, another foundation wall built next to the original will provide the necessary reinforcement.

Each waterproofing and foundation repair company will have its own preferred methods. Typically, however, the solution is simple. Some companies, however, will sell homeowners on extremely expensive methods, technology and materials. At Aquashield Waterproofing we will not complicate things unnecessarily. We will work hard to identify the most effective and cost-efficient solution for your home’s foundation issues. more about foundations & their problems ...
Underpinning

When a basement requires more ceiling height or the foundation needs to be strengthened and stabilized, both can be achieved through underpinning. This process involves carefully digging out small sections of the ground below the existing foundation wall in a 1-2-3 sequence that will add depth and stability. To ensure continued support for the structure, it is not safe to underpin an entire length of a wall in one go. The work must be done in sections. A small section, below and beside the existing foundation is excavated and temporary supports may be installed to support the main weight-bearing walls during this process.

The excavated sections are then filled with concrete to create a new foundation or series of concrete footings beneath the original. This process of underpinning is an effective method to extend the depth and width of support offered by the original foundation. Once the foundation wall is lowered, a new concrete floor can be poured, providing additional height in a basement.
