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.

Foundation crack injection

It was a pleasure to work with Dave on this project. Quick responses. Clear written estimate. Work scheduled quickly, showed up on time, did a great job. Smooth payment/receipt process. Totally professional operation. Hope to not have more foundation cracks in my future, but if I do, I will be calling Dave.

Basement Foundation Crack

We found water leak in the basement. I contacted Dave. He was very helpful in assessing the issue and recommending the solutions. Both Dave and Mirko were fantastic. Mirko came to remove drywall and was able to identify the crack and Dave sealed the crack the following day. The turnaround time from contacting Dave to job well done was amazingly fast (within 2 days)!
I am very pleased with the work that was done professional and quickly.
Dave was very professional, responsive, knowledgeable and efficient.
I would highly recommend DM Foundation for their work and service!

Basement foundation repair

Dave was absolutely wonderful. He came to give me a quote of the job. Super friendly, and easy to talk to. Gave me a written quote within a few hours, and we scheduled the job less then two weeks later. He arrived when he said he would, was done within a few hours, job site left perfectly clean.

I would absolutely highly recommend him for any basement foundation repairs in future.

Basement waterproofing

We hired Dave Marcotte Foundations to help us with a moisture issue in our basement. We had talked to our neighbours who all highly recommended Dave Marcotte and we are so glad we took their advice. Dave came to the house and walked us through the issues that were happening in our basement and it was clear that he knew what he was talking about. The work was completed on time and on budget and the crew did an excellent job. Thanks!

Basement solidifying and waterproofing

After buying our home in 2018, we got Dave and Jesse to come take a look at the foundation and basement. They were punctual, friendly and honest throughout. We ultimately decided to wait a couple of years to do this work. We’re now 2021 and in October I reached out to Dave about getting the work done in the spring of 2022. Dave was quick to respond and even called me at 8pm after sending an email with various questions. He updated my quote and got me in his 2022 schedule to do exterior waterproofing.

This past week (December 2021) Jesse installed Fortress stabilization straps on my basement walls. The guys did an great job and work hard to get it done in a day. We’re very happy with Dave Marcotte Foundations and will definitely recommend when possible.

Install sump pump

We had Dave Marcotte Foundations come in to assess water leakage in our basement. It was determined that a second sump pump would help to alleviate this problem. The workmen arrived on time and in one day had installed a new sump pump. The job was completed and they removed cement and dirt leaving no mess as they had prepared the work area with carpets from the front door to the basement. My wife and I highly recommend Dave Marcotte Foundations.
