Waterproofing and Sump Pump Installation

I was highly recommended by my neighbour who used their service to contact Colm at Act Fast Waterproofing to get a quote. The next day Colm looked at the exterior wall and within a few hours received a fair quote. Approval was given to waterproof and install a sump pump and now the work is completed.
Colm, Paul and Dominic are an amazing team and very professional. Mutual driveway and work area was left very clean. I really appreciated Colm’s honesty and trust in whatever decisions he needed to make to complete the job. Colm has kindly offered to help me submit the rebate application form for the sump pump.
I would highly recommend Act Fast Waterproofing - fairly priced and excellent workmanship.

Professional, Fast and Easy to work with

We hired Act Fast in spring 2019 and had a wonderful experience. After receiving multiple quotes there were 2 companies with a comparable technique that was what I had researched was the more effective method for waterproofing. They both had comparable pricing but Colm was able to start a lot sooner and was much more responsive to questions/communications.

Throughout the process he kept me updated with photos and discussions. He kept a close eye on the weather radar and worked hard to get outdoor jobs finished before upcoming rainfalls (and ended up finishing ahead of schedule). He went out of his way to make sure we were happy with the job during and after. Colm did a professional quality job and was so easy to work with. I highly recommend Act Fast Waterproofing.

The proof is in the parging

Colm is very professional and thorough, and does a proper job with surface prep - some companies will take shortcuts here. We got a number of quotes too and Act Fast was one of the most competitive. Great value.

Internal Waterproofing & sump pump installation

I contacted 6 different contractors - I chose Act Fast - Colm as he was knowledgeable, professional and did not push to sell his services. The price was the best out of the 6 and were able to do the work on the date I requested. Colm and Dominic came in and covered everything with drop sheets, prepped the area, made sure to cause as little disruption as possible. They cleaned up the area, no mess, everything done perfectly and by 5pm the job was finished. ActFast is great, professional and affordable - I would highly recommend them. Thanks Colm & Dominic!

Fantastic Job!

My basement had a leak just before I was going to finish the basement so it was very important things were done right. I was impressed with the thought he puts into how to best fix the problem and giving me options at different price points that all made sense. Honest, respectful, and great workmanship! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending or using Act Fast again for any leaky basement issue. 100%! Thank you, Colm.

Sump pump install, concrete work.

Colm and his team are just first rate. Super honest, great communication and excellent service. We’ve been having water infiltration issues in the spring thaw with the rising ground water levels and needed a sump pump. I got several quotes from well reviewed contractors. Colm was the only person who offered not only a decent price, but also told me about things I thought I needed but that I could actually do without. He actually saved me money! His team was very efficient, polite and cleaned up after themselves.

I’m looking at doing underpinning soon, and he will be the first person I call. Thanks again, Colm!

Exterior Wall and Window Sealing

Colm was a pleasure to work with. He was quick to look at the scope of work and give us a quote. He sealed our exterior wall and installed a window well and cover. Colm communicated regularly and clearly throughout the project. He also kept the job area clean and neat. Excellent workmanship and we would highly recommended his services.
