Sump pump installation

The Mud Monkey crew were very professional, courteous and quick. They cleaned up their work area completely, showed up on time and did the job at a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend!

Waterproofing basement

Our neighbour decided to concrete the back pathway with a slope towards our house! The first big rainfall sent water and mud into our basement.

We heard of Mud Monkeys through a friend. They came very quickly to assess the damage and came up with a plan. Unfortunately there was no room to fix the problem from the back path, so they decided that the best option was install a barrier in our basement back wall.

The work was completed in 2 days with as little mess as possible. The crew was courteous and polite, very nice guys. They did a great job, cleaned up the mess very well and we haven't had a problem since.

I'd highly recommend Mud Monkeys for quality of work, punctuality and competence. A bargain too, for the work that they did.

Waterproofing / weeping tiles

We used Darby and his team for our waterproofing and weeping tile replacement of our very old home and can not say enough about the service. They were respectful, prompt and are skilled at what they do! I had questions after the work was completed and Darby prioritized my concerns, returned to the house and alleviated my worries by fully inspecting what turned out to be nothing! He is a pleasure to deal with. Since they did our waterproofing we have had zero dampness in our basement! Highly recommend!

basement waterproofing

Our basement has leaked for a long time Mud Monkeys had a plan that fixed it. The workmen were professional and answered all of our questions. They arrived when they said and actually finished the work early. They also guarantee their work.

Exterior Waterproofing

We had exterior waterproofing done, which took about 2 days. Darby and his team were great and I would recommend them to anyone. I also needed window wells in my narrow driveway so that the ground level could come up high enough to slope away from the house without blocking the windows. They cut the window wells down so I could still get my car through the driveway, and the backfilled dirt and gravel was sloping away from the house. After driving over the backfilled dirt and gravel for several months, a trench developed while the dirt settled. We had a big rainstorm and rain pooled in the trench, but the basement stayed dry! I called Darby who came within the week to top up the dirt and gravel (at no charge) so that it once again sloped away from the house so that water no longer pooled in it.

Thanks for your time in writing the review. We always try to leave our customers satisfied with the quality of work we do. That is why with exterior waterproofing the earth will settle, which is a good thing before you put your asphalt or concrete back. But we are always just a phone call or email away to come back and top up the settled area for all our customers.

Great waterproofing!

Great communication and great work! Mud Monkeys did a wonderful job helping me with some minor basement flooding in my old home. They also helped coordinate the installation of a sump pump with a local plumber. Highly recommended!

Underpinning a semi

I was very anxious about the project, but Darby immediately made me feel confident that it would go well, and it did. The whole thing was a lot less disruptive than I thought it would be. Darby was always available to me and helpful with my neighbours (very important when you're underpinning a semi). Darby's team of workers, which included his son Zack, were polite, friendly, respectful, and kept the place as clean and organized as possible. I actually miss having them around now, but at least now I have a deep, dry basement! Highly recommend.

Waterproofing

Darby and his crew were very honest and listened to our concerns and made some clear recommendations for our basement waterproofing project. And the overall follow-up service by Mud Monkeys on some issues that we were concerned about was excellent! My wife and I were very pleased with the overall work and the final successful result. We would highly recommend Mud Monkeys for good, honest and hard working positive results for your waterproofing home needs.

Waterproofing basement

We hired Mud Monkeys to do the waterproofing work for us as they had been recommended by a friend. We had a flood in a fast melt during March and so the wall needed to be sured up for the future. A crew of 3 young guys came to the house, dug out a trench about 3ft wide and 15ft long by hand, then they waterproofed the wall, re sealed everything, refilled and put in a window well.
The mess was minimal considering the work that was done and the finish was professional.

Basement waterproofing

We experienced some leaking in our basement when the snow melted last spring and called Mud Monkeys after reading their reviews on HomeStars. It turned out we had a type of cistern (approximately 4'x6'x4') buried at the back of our house abutting against the basement wall that was the source of the problem. Darby and his crew explained everything to us, were prompt - both in giving a quote and then coming to do the work. kept us fully informed about progress, did a professional job removing the cistern and waterproofing the walls, including clean up when they were done.

WATERPROOFING

Tired of mopping the water in your basement? Does your basement smell of mould and mildew? Is your foundation wall retaining water slowly and deteriorating? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then the following will describe the reasons why, and how, to eliminate the problem. The cause of your basement's musty smell is because your foundation wall is retaining water, be it in the hollow block cavities or trapped behind the double brick or stone wall, as well as the water that is absorbed by the block, brick and stone. This combination causes the wall to produce mould, mildew and epharecense. The water trapped in the wall slowly deteriorates the wall, starting at the bottom.The water that makes its way into the basement through the wall and seems to cause us the most grief may not be the most concerning problem. The same problem will not occur with a solid poured concrete wall. The reason being you will find a defined crack in the solid wall that allows all the water to enter in, without retaining little, or any water.Regardless of which type of foundation you have, it can become watertight, mould and mildew-free by sealing your foundation from the OUTSIDE. With solid poured concrete foundations, you can inject the crack from the inside and the elements stay out.You must expose your foundation wall from grade level to 6" below the top of the footing. Then you must clean the wall thoroughly, exposing the deteriorated areas and cleaning all the dust and dirt from the wall. Then, restore any cracks or loose mortar joints with hydrolic cement. Cement coat the wall,Tar and install 6mm poly plastic on top. Once the wall is treated, install a 4" continuous weeping tile covered with 6 inches of 3/4" stone. Then back-fill the earth compacting at every foot. At grade level slope the earth, concrete, interlocking etc. away from the house.This method never fails. I have used this system over 13 years without fail. I have the references for you to refer to. We also have a photo album to take you step by step through the procedure.So, stop mopping! Relieve your allergies from mold and mildew and restore your foundation. When you do decide to restore your foundation do it the right way - from the outside. Remember, 40% of all my work is fixing other people's attempt to stop the water.
