After a sizeable snowfall this past January we started to get quite a lot of water seeping into our basement from the foundation from all sides. We called Kerrisdale and Tim came out promptly to assess our situation. He suspected that our old house likely had concrete drainage tiles which had failed. Tim was very generous with his time and explained how the system should work and likely what was wrong with ours and suggested that we dig a few test holes to confirm the type of drainage system and its state. Kerrisdale was able to come a few weeks later and after digging the holes, Tim's suspicion was correct the concrete tiles were in very bad condition and the perimeter drainage should be replaced as well as a new line out to the storm sewer. Tim wrote up a detailed estimate which broke down all of the work and costs. Tim set us up with a temporary sump pump which kept our basement dry until his crew could start the work. During the replacement work Tim kept in touch frequently as the project progressed and was always available by phone. His crew worked very hard and were respectful of our house and the neighbours and made sure to keep everything safe. We were pleased that the project was finished sooner than expected and that the crew cleaned up really well. Tim demonstrated how the system worked and what maintenance would be needed in years ahead to keep it in great shape. We would definetely recommend Kerrisdale for drainage maintenance and replacement work!
