Three 24 by 36 Egress Basement Windows excavation, drainage and install

Dave was very responsive by phone, and what he promised was what he and his crew delivered on. They dealt directly with the City when the inspector came onsite. When I had trouble filling out the City's permit application, Dave helped so it expedited approval. When I discovered that my window supplier had somehow forgotten to order the windows three months earlier, Dave suggested both an online supplier (excellent choice - the windows were a fraction of what I would have paid for custom windows and were delivered within a few days of the order from Toronto - no Customs issues). I also no longer trusted the window supplier so Dave recommended a different window installer who also did an excellent job and showed up on short notice. All in all, every problem I had with other tradespeople somehow got dealt with by Dave efficiently so that I got windows before the winter season.

Weeping tile installation

The work was done when they said it would be done, on budget, and they came every day until the job was finished, weather permitting. The difficult areas to dig by machine were done by hand, so the porches were not dismantled. The site was kept neat and tidy, and when finished, restored well. The crew were efficient, polite, friendly and used a minimum of language your grandmother wouldn't like. We loved that they seemed happy to be doing the job, that they all pitched in with the less pleasant parts of the work. Happy workers make for good work, I think. We are very pleased to have chosen this company.

Addition foundation and waterproofing

I spoke with a few different contractors who specialized in foundations and I was impressed by Dave's knowledge, candour and intregrity. I contracted DM waterproofing to excavate down to the footing around the house and add exterior insulation. Dave also built a a foundation for a 40x10 addition in ICF.

I was very picky about the details and they got them right. Dave and his crew were pleasant to deal with and very professional.

2 Foundation Cracks Repaired: Integrity, Quality, Value

I cannot say enough good about this company. They showed up on the day and time promised; they honoured the price they quoted even though excavation had to go deeper and wider than originally thought; and they cleaned up beautifully with a pressure washer. Their price was highly competitive and they were one of the few contractors that would dispose of the clay they dug up, test the water flow in my French drain, use new and appropriate back-fill material, and return my patio stones and back step to their proper places. The crew was professional and polite. They had the right equipment and materials for the project. They dug out an old sono tube at no extra charge. All that and a 25 year warranty! Because their quality puts them in high demand, expect a few months delay between when you request a quote and when work can begin.

Waterproofing

Dave the owner came out and gave a quote. Everything was clear and quote was laid out on paper. No surprises. The team worked very well together. NO complaining amongst them, or feeling of not wanting to be there. For those of you having to do lots of renos, you'll understand that last part. The tasks were done correctly and the crew was great!

Thanks for taking the time. Can you share what we could have done to get a 10/10 instead of an 8/10? As a private user I don't know who this is, so that I could reach out.

Crack Repair Excavation

We had some leaking in our basement earlier this year and after contacting Dave Marcotte and sending some pictures they pointed out a clear crack on the side of the house. We contracted them and they did a fantastic job to repair the crack (and also a second one that they found while on site). This is a great company which I will recommend to all. Here are a few reasons why:
1. They communicated very clearly from the beginning when then can start the project and respected the start date and the timeline. Once they started they communicated every step and also took pictures and emailed them to me so I could follow up with my insurance company.
2. They did a fantastic job in excavating the side of the house and repairing a deep crack that went all the way to the base of the foundation.
3. On day 1 of the project, the team noticed a second crack that I had missed. I asked them to excavate and repair that one too (also from outside of the house since the inside of the basement is insulated with spray foam).
4. They took the second crack into account when billing and I qualified for some discount (due to multiple crack excavations).
5. They excavated both cracks really deep and filled the deep cracks all the way down to the base of the foundation. Also guaranteed their work (all waterproofing) for 25 years!
6. They put the interlock (that they had to remove) back very nicely
7. They cleaned after their work was completed.
8. The crew was a good size (4 individuals) so the work got done really fast and efficient
9. Everyone was very professional
10. Oh and they did not damage our lawn with their machines and equipment!
I don't typically write reviews and this might be is the first one I've every wrote for a company. I do this because I value the work that was done and I know that homeowners look for a company they can trust. I hope this review will help homeowners in their selection. You will not regret hiring Dave Marcotte Foundations.

Foundation Crack Repair

I was extremely impressed with Dave Marcotte Foundations. They went above and beyond when taking the time to explain the issues and brought in a structural engineer who did the same. This provided us with piece of mind, as anxious new home owners. Beyond this, the work was done with limited interruptions (key when working from home and with a new baby) and the end product looks good!

We have some more foundation work that we're looking to do next summer and are hoping Dave's crew will be able to help us out again.

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.
