Drainage repair

While doing some restoration work on our 56 year old home we thought it would be a good idea to move our sump outside and replace the drain tile due to some recent water back-up issues. After getting a couple of pricey quotes I decided to call Carlo. He said a camera inspection will be the best way to determine our options. Once inspected he found a few minor issues and saved a ton of money by not having to move the sump or replace the drain tile. He even commented that our system quite clean for the age. A while later our neighbour had a water leak so I recommended Carlo. He came quickly and, yet again, saved $$ by providing honest advice on what needed to be done. A huge thank you to Carlo for his honesty and efficiency. I am confident our home will be dry for many years to come.

Drain Tile and Drainage Flush and Repair

Carlo was a pleasure to deal with, he took the time to walk me through the his work and to explain in full detail how best to maintain the drain tile in the future. He also advised on some remedies I could achieve myself in order to have the best functioning drain system possible while alleviating pre-existing issues.
Would recommend him to friends and family.
I asked a lot of questions and he took the time to answer all of them. Thanks Carlo!

Renew Drainage flow

Owner Carlo is an exceptional man. Like a surgeon he solved our wet basement by using his amazing camera. He quickly zeroed in on the exact problem, using the latest techniques he had everything cleaned out and flowing in three days. I had quotes up to 20 times the amount he charged us. He is personable, knowledgeable, and honest to the nth degree. He kept me informed about every step of the repair to our 50 year old home drainage. He charged only 2/3 of his quote. I highly recommend him, If you have a drainage problem, be sure to call Westside Drainage Ltd.

Drain Tile Inspection/Cleaning

We were doing some work on our basement and found that we may have had a leak. Carlo from Westside Drainage was very knowledgeable and with his camera took me through the inspection and identified the blockages in the tile fairly quickly. We booked date to clean the tile a week later and then the job was done in two days. Carlo's team was so efficient they finished early and he gave us a break on the price. Overall very professional and a great company to work with.

Drainage

Very thankful to Carlo and Jay for their excellent work in installing drain system in the back of our house and connecting it with existing drainage system in the front. Carlo was easy to reach, provided experienced advice on the work required, was prompt and well-organized, and charged under the original estimate based upon the actual work required.

Fixed outside drainage problem

Westside Drainage is professional, reliable, and efficient. We appreciated Carlo's great attitude and his thoroughness in diagnosing the problem. He and Jay dug up our old pipe, replaced it with the right kind, and left our yard in better shape than they found it. Great service, good price.

Drain tile repair

Our sloping driveway turned into a small lake after a very heavy rain last spring, resulting in some water in our garage. So I wanted to get it taken care of before the return of the winter rains. When Carlo came (on a Sunday as he was very busy) and checked the drain tiles with his video camera he showed me how badly blocked they were. He explained what he'd do to determine the extent of the blockages and what he expected to find and provided a written quote to do the work.

As Carlo exposed the areas he needed to see he kept me constantly updated with what he was finding and explained to me very concisely what had to be done. After cleaning the blocked areas and repairing a couple of connections he demonstrated to me that the drain tiles were working properly. He came up with an innovative solution to replacing the drain cover at the bottom of our driveway, and advised me on how to keep the drain tiles cleaner for the future. The work was done efficiently and the areas that were being worked on were left safely covered or taped off at the end of each day.

Had some rain the other night and everything worked great, the water went where it was supposed to go - away from the house.

Carlo demonstrated the experience, knowledge, honesty and professionalism that we all look for when we hire a contractor. He also passed on some great tips for growing tomatoes.

Drain tile repair

After explaining to Carlo at Westside Drainage that we were concerned with mold and the health of the family in our home, he made extra time in his schedule to view our blocked drain tile. He explained each step first with the video inspection and on his second visit, the repair. He answered all our questions and gave us peace of mind. We would certainly recommend his company to family and friends.

drain repair

The surface drains at the end of our reverse-slope driveway were draining too slow. During the biggest summer storms this year, they would not drain fast enough, and water would rise and enter the back of the house. Carlo was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and experienced and did the repair to the drainage system as quoted. He told us what we could do ourselves for maintenance in the future. The true test will be the next time we have another downpour as heavy as the one that flooded us out, but I now have confidence thanks this company. It was a bit on the expensive side, but I do believe in paying the right price for knowledge and experience and this was one of those occasions. I also believe that Carlo tried to find the simplest and most cost effective solution to our problem and discouraged any unnecessary work.
