waterproofing basement

The Umbrella team transformed our damp, musty basement into a usable space.Vlad and his impressive team did a good job waterproofing the basement walls, replacing a lead water pipe and installing new cleanouts and a bathroom drain.

Waterproofing Job

Umbrella’s team did a huge waterproofing job for us over a year ago, on April of 2009. We wanted to wait and put the job to the test of time and weather before giving a feedback on their work. More than a year after many rainy and snowy months our basement shows no signs of dampness; basement became completely dry shortly after work was performed and the air quality improved significantly. Umbrella’s crew did a SUBLIME waterproofing job, and we want to thank you for your first-class work and for fixing our “homeowner’s nightmare”. (We apologize for not posting a review earlier.) Highly recommended!

drain back-up

We moved into our first house this past February. You can imagine how we felt when our basement drain started backing up almost immediately and the first quote we received was for a $15,000 job to do a complete overhaul of the drainpipes. Four quotes later, Vlad was the man for the job. He promptly came to our house on a Friday evening, took the time to thoroughly investigate, and recommended a $2,000 solution. The job got done that weekend. If necessary (hopefully not), we will definitely call Vlad again.

Waterproofing

I want to thank Umbrella Waterproofing for a wonderful job done in waterproofing my house in Richmond Hill! They are a first rate company that will do anything for the customer. This company stood out amongst all the other companies that we have contacted regarding waterproofing. We got a very pleasant visit from their expert who was helpful, genuine and offered us several solutions. Needless to mention that cost was reasonable and they did not try to make an extra buck out of our situation. They worked hard and delivered sublime results!

Outside Basement Waterproofing

Umbrella’s staff was exceptional from start to finish: professional, very helpful and honest. Their technicians came on time, equipped with newest technology, friendly and very knowledgeable. Vlad took our plumbing problem under control and delivered results as promised. They were very respectful of our home and left the job area impeccably clean after waterproofing was completed. We are so happy with the results that we have hired them already for another project.

Weeping Tile Repair

Vlad was the only contractor (out of at least five) who was truthful about the scope of work needed. He did not try to upsell me through fear tactics to undertake other work and was forthcoming about what the problem was. In addition, he located a smell in my basement and simply filled an empty floor drain. Five "highly reputable" contractors told me that the same smell was moisture and a $10 to $15k dig job around my house. I highly recommend him.

Installation of French drainage system

Vlad was courteous, knowledgeable, and reliable. He cleanly redirected our downspouts on both sides into new French drainage systems, graded properly, and dug out sizable (4x4x4 foot) openings. It was cleaned up, topsoil and grass finished to our liking. I would highly recommend him in future.

Lead pipe replacement. Low Water pressure

We had poor water pressure in the house. We called several companies to get diagnostic and to get quotes for the job. Vlad was the only one who told us about lead pipe and showed it to us. We were exposed to lead (Pb) poisoning and did not know about it!!! No other technicians who came to give us quotes saw it! After we made sure that pipe was indeed made of lead, we asked Vlad from Umbrella to do the job. He replaced ¾ led pipe with copper one (the best ones). He also showed us the build up in the old line. Not only did he do an amazing and clean job(+water pressure is great), He saved us! We need more experts like this! Thank you so much and best of luck to you!

Waterproofing

Hired Umbrella Waterproofing for a big waterproofing job after getting several estimates from various companies. Budget was not an issue, so we based our decision on how preofessional, honest and knowlegeable technician who we spoke to was. Vlad came on a short notice. Was very patient with our questions, listened to all our concerns, explained all the steps. Job execution was flawless. Tahnk you!

Flooded basement repair

My basement was flooded and I needed help fast. Vlad came on a short notice. He was very understanding and willing to give me a price that met my budget! The estimate for the work seemed reasonable and better than estimates I got over the phone from other companies. Vlad also was confident and very convincing. I liked that he was generous with his time, explanations and tidbits of useful information. That assured me that he would deliver great results. He did. Thank you very much for your honesty and great service!
