I had a small and unattractive project which consisted of covering the old insulbrick of a row house downtown (no alleyway, through the house only backyard access) with vinyl siding until proper renovations in a couple years - what I called "lipstick on a pig" as for now it's just to waterproof the wall and stop the leaks from further damaging the inside. I received all kind of quotes and feedback from various contractors ranging from "I'm quoting you extra because it's an inconvenient job" to "I'm quoting you so you don't want to hire us". I received 6 quotes in total. Oleg's quote at HomeVision came simply, no fuss, based on pictures and then a visit, where he said coming from inside wasn't a big deal at all (and it wasn't, the other contractors made it sound as a terrifying experience). On the contract he added a line for sheathing replacement in case it was needed, but didn't have to replace any as he found it was in ok condition after all (a few contractors said we'd have to take down the entire insulbrick and sheathing for an additional $2-4K). I said ok and he started the very next day (also a delight of punctuality!), 8am to 1pm, and wrapped up taking away any debris. Voila! It doesn't get easier than that. Sometimes a client really just want a bandaid solution and doesn't have handy capacities to do it themselves. In my case I felt like Oleg was the only one who understood my motivations. You pay a premium for the team to do it instead of a friend, but he still gave me the 7 year warranty and at the end it looks so much nicer than lipstick on a pig ;) Thanks Oleg!

We hired Aquamasters out of 5 bids received for an underpinning/waterproofing of a 120 year old row house downtown a busy street. AM was not the cheapest but Fedor seemed honest, very professional and familiar with downtown projects - and the reviews were excellent and the timing to start just about perfect. For us, this project was downright scary - so much money, and so many worries about the state of the house, which wasn’t good. Not only AM started right on time, but they took exactly the time they said they would to complete, what I thought, was a horrendous project (narrow house with street parking at the front). Both our engineer and the City inspector commanded Fedor and his team for a job extremely well executed on during the three mandatory visits. It was essentially seamless and almost worry free. There are two negatives (that are completely out weighted by the positive experience) that I’d like to note for my fellow customers if they choose AM: The first one came as a surprise expense, which in hindsight, we should have expected by lowering the floor so much but that Fedor didn’t explain in advance, which was the cost of an injector pump. It’s also a big device which made our designers have to re-design the floor plan. Other than that, the cost was the quote. At the end, we ended up having an even better layout so again, not mad about it. The second is the mess they left after work was completed. The house was unoccupied and going through other renos so I can kind of understand, but I was a bit grossed out to have to clean the mud on the toilet and the walls myself, along with the garbage left over. Note to make to ask sure they do a wipe out as I had expected they would (I had read it in another review). It’s not worth taking points out for what I reckon was a amazing job over all and because I would still rehire them in heart beat to do the same project. Good work team Aquamaster!
