Waterproofing, Weeping Tile , Sump Pump , Benching

Colm is the best contractor I have ever worked with, from the first call, to the first visit, humoring my overly talkative father during the quote and process he's been polite, fast to respond , honest about what should be done and what isn't worth the cost and straight forward with more than fair pricing.

I couldn't even get other companies to commit to doing the work this year or commit to a time to come quote the job , Colm was at my house the day after my first call and started work within 2 weeks of me giving the go ahead to the job.

Job was done immaculately, job site was left clean, he checked in with me several times throughout the project to confirm where they were progress wise, ask me questions about what we wanted when he ran into choices to make , the work quality was immaculate ( especially the benching to lower the basement ) and worked with my plumber when he found an issue with the outside drain to point out the issue to them, and work with and around them.

When the work was done, he provided instructions and a perfectly itemized bill to get rebates for the weeping tile and sump pump from the city

If you are looking for waterproofing, this is your guy , I happily have his sign out front of my house, and would recommend him to absolutely anyone who needs any type of waterproofing

Cheers

Internal waterproofing project

Act Fast Waterproofing was “fast and efficient” when doing our basement waterproofing. While our basement was quite dry we know that basement waterproofing systems directly fortify the foundation with membranes, any waterproofing system will go a long way in protecting our home against moisture problems. We’d hire Colm and his team in a heartbeat but I’m sure we won’t need too…

New Home Waterproofing Review and Fix

Colm and his team are a dedicated bunch who know their stuff and go out of their way to do what's best for their clients.

I got to know Colm from a referral through a local Facebook group and he's always provided his expert insight into waterproofing needs.

We recently purchased a new home where the basement was dug low and the dimple board around the house looked off. I asked Colm to come check out our place and he didn't upsell us and provided honest feedback on our home and did some strapping around the house to help maintain the current waterproofing. He was also helpful in referring us to other service contractors for other needs that Act Fast doesn't provide.

These days, it's nice to know and have a professional team who is there to provide valuable information and services without feeling the need to spend or improve when it's not needed.

We really appreciate Act Fast and their services and hope they are around to help us maintain our homes for a while.

Basement Waterproofing - Highly Recommend

We've just had one of the heaviest and longest storms in a while and I am thrilled that my basement is dry. Colm was really great to deal with. He responded very quickly to my request for a quote, offered detailed explanations and advice on my basement situation, quickly put together a detailed quote, and never once tried to up-sell me. Throughout the job they treated my home with respect, leaving everywhere in good order. Colm and the Act Fast crew worked hard, they worked quickly, and they managed to finish slightly ahead of schedule. I would definitely recommend!

Fantastic work & friendly service

I was looking for interior waterproofing of my basement. Colm did an in-home visit to provide me with a detailed estimate and gave me a couple of options.
The work was done efficiently and on time. Colm and his crew were friendly and consistently gave me updates on their progress.
Would highly recommend the company to anyone looking for water-proofing services.

Basement waterproofing 10/10

I highly recommend giving Colm a call if you are in need of someone reliable, honest, very knowledgeable and who takes into account your specific basement waterproofing issues that are unique to your situation and house. I had some water seepage coming in through my basement which was occupied with a tenant. I met with a few companies but they were not helpful in finding a solution that didn't result in an exorbitant cost, time to complete the job, and major inconvenience to my tenant. Colm was highly professional, knowledge of the area and soil, and provided great advice for my unique situation. I greatly appreciated his concern given that basement water leaking can be a stressful situation. Don't look any further than Colm at Act Fast!

Basement Waterproofing - would recommend!

We're super happy with Colm's work. Colm is professional, honest, dedicated to his clients, and genuinely loves what he does. From the first phonecall, he always took the time to discuss the project in detail and work out the best and most cost effective strategy for us. He always showed up when he said he would, and got the got the job done in a timely manner, on budget without cutting any corners.  We'll be hiring him again in the near future for another area of the house. Thanks Colm!

waterproof/repair basement leak

I was very impressed with Colm and his team. They arrived punctually. We were given a clear and detailed explanation of the repair process. The job was done thoroughly and we were invited to inspect the repair process as it went along to ensure that we were satisfied that no steps were missed. The job site was left clean and clear. They worked tirelessly on a very hot day to complete the job on time. We were more than satisfied and we would certainly recommend them to anyone needing waterproofing/basement leak repairs.

Colm is the best!

In November 2020 I reached out to a number of contractors for a job and Colm was the only one who took the time to analyze the issue when providing his quote. When I hired him he constantly went above and beyond, including being mindful and open about cost. I would not hesitate to use him again and wholeheartedly recommend him.
