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.

When we deal with such old houses, it's crazy some things we dig up and come across. We always have a solution in rectifying the issue and keeping the cost down as best as possible.
Glad we were able to solve your pesky water issue.

Waterproofing

Darby, Nick and the Mud Monkeys team did a fantastic job waterproofing the foundation of our 70 year old house. We had the work done on a different side of the house every year or two to spread out the expense. They were professional, reliable, on budget and on time, every time. I was amazed that they were able get to the foundation under our deck and do the work with absolutely no damage to the deck. I highly recommend Mud Monkeys!

We called several companies when our basement flooded last Spring. The Mud Monkeys responded immediately to assess our situation! They were thorough and professional, giving us all of our options and associated cost. We highly recommend them and will only use them going forward.

Basement waterproofing

Had a foundation leak in in the basement of our 100 year old house. They came to inspect the issue and found that it looked like it was coming up from around the footing. We ended up having three walls done from the inside and had a sump pump added when it was discovered that there was significant dampness behind the walls. Their work was fast and professional and the basement is now dry. We would happily recommend them.

Underpinning of an old house in Leslieville (1914)

We just bought our first family home and have a small baby daughter (under a year old). We had some money saved up after the house purchase and wanted to renovate our basement. After a lot of back and forth we decided to get our house underpinned! It was a big decision but we have no regrets whatsoever. The basement had 6.5ft. ceiling height which made it only useful for storage and maybe laundry. Because of the age of the house there was a lot of make-shift projects (old countertops, half a bathroom, old shelves) left in the basement. Mud Monkeys came and with hyper-efficiency removed all the garbage and did a fantastic job getting permits, bins in and out, and dug out an additional 2.5 ft. (9ft total) in our basement. We feel like we gained a whole new floor of our house and we are planning our 3rd bathroom, walkout, and rec room down there. They completed the job within schedule and budget. Thanks Mud Monkeys!

Thank you for your review Atif.
Its always hard to find new useful space within such old homes. I'm glad we were able to help you with your desired renovation and to give you that much more head room to enjoy the space!
Good luck on the rest of the project and take care.

Waterproof

After multiple failed attempts at waterproofing our basement with other companies, we were referred to Mud Monkeys. From the beginning Darby was extremely helpful, understanding and professional. The team was very friendly, polite and worked hard to get the job done on time, with zero added or surprise cost's at the end. We can't thank Mud Monkey's enough for the work they did. Gone are the days of worry when rain is in the forecast!

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.
