Great, honest work

I had a nontrivial foundation repair request and Dave did a great job undertaking the work. Other contractors either quoted me absurd amounts or simply refused to do the work. Dave and his team were respectful of my property and returned it to original. I especially appreciated him breaking down how the work was going to be executed and what to expect. Would definitely recommend for foundation repair.

Foundation, window well repair

The guys were efficient, on time and did a great job. I was impressed with the quality of their work and the fact that the job took 2 days. Once done, they cleaned up and everything looks great.

Crack in foundation

Dave came to our house in fall of 2021 to inspect a crack in the parging at our house. He booked to do the excavation and repair early spring. They came the week promised, did the work they had outlined and fixed the crack. Everything was done in a few days and done well. Workers kept the work area clean and safe and were excellent to deal with. Communication was good throughout.

Basement lowering and waterproofing

We hired Dave Marcotte Foundations to lower our basement and waterproof our 100 year old foundation. Dave and his team were honest and highly communicative throughout the process. The work was completed ahead of schedule and on budget. They are experienced with old homes in our neighbourhood so we had no surprises.

We highly recommend them!

Basement Window Enlargement and Addition

After quite a bit of research, quotes and due diligence, we choose to go with DM Foundations for our Basement Window Enlargement and addition project.
We really enjoyed the process working with Dave and his team. The whole onsite team ran by Jesse was as professional and polite it could get.

Ours was a large project with 3 windows 55x49 each with all the engineering requirements which comes with this kind of project. Everything was done on time and professionally in span of 5 working days.
We are really happy with the final results and will highly recommend Dave and his team to anyone looking for this kind of work.

Crack repair to house foundation

Dave was conducting a foundation repair at my neighbors house and asked him to take a look at a small crack that ran vertically in a corner of my foundation. Although there was no water infiltration, humidity was present on both side of the line fracture and could smell the mildew after removing the insulation. He provided me a quote within 24 hours an came at my earliest convenience. Fix the crack within 2 hours, no mess and the concrete dried completely within a couple days and the smell went away. A+++

Structural foundation assessment

We live in an old house that needed a structural foundation assessment. Dave arranged for the engineer's assessment right away. They provided a thorough consult and laid out in a clear way what our repair options are.

We highly recommend Dave Marcotte Foundations!!

Thanks Dave and to your team

During a winter rain storm and melt we discovered water in our basement. A contractor friend of mine recommended Dave Marcotte Foundations. Dave immediately called me back, assisted me with discovering where the water may be coming from. We had two cracks on either side of our window well. I did the demolition, which he removed from my billing after the work was completed. Thanks Dave, this was not an insurance claim, but he had given me a 10 year guarantee of work.
