"The work was efficiently and expertly done."
Joan and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank both you and your crew. Dave you did a terrific job for us, start to finish. If we needed this work done again, we’d hire your company without hesitation.
We had done our homework in verifying sources to complete our foundation repairs. Most companies we called never even called back. We had one guy come over to look and then he never gave us an estimate. Every time we called, he’d say, oh, just a couple of days. We were most fortunate that your company was by far the best in professionalism, as well as responding to our needs and meeting the dates we had set.
I did a bit of checking and I called people for references. Your company checked out and our meetings confirmed our decision so, we decided to go ahead. There weren’t many openings left and we wanted to get the job done before the HST kicked in. We were lucky we made that decision. You booked us in, were here when you said you would be here, and were done within a week.
The work was efficiently and expertly done. Your company also does stuff that other companies don’t do, such as using fresh stone to fill the excavation and topping that off with soil (actually great for gardening!). Other companies just dump the old fill back in. They also put insulation around the bottom of our walls, they took care of having our air conditioner professionally disconnected and re-connected when the job was finished. They disassembled a portion of our professionally landscaped retaining wall and put it back exactly as it was. Dave even went to our immediate neighbour to advise what he was doing and let him know any mess would be cleaned to his satisfaction. That is service.
In closing, if you are looking for a reference, please do not hesitate in giving our name.

"The job was done within the estimated time and was on budget."
Dave Marcotte Foundations recently waterproofed the foundation of our 50+ year old home and did a great job. After noticing some water issues in our basement during previous years, we looked into solutions for addressing the problem. Referred to by a friend, we contacted Dave Marcotte Foundations who provided sound advice and recommendations. In consultation with Dave, we decided to have the front of the foundation of our home excavated to install new weeping tile and to waterproof the exterior of the foundation wall. This, in conjunction with some interior work (e.g., replacing our cast iron sanitary with the appropriate pipes, upgrading our water supply line and installing a back flow valve) completed the solution. While the improvements will truly be put to the test this coming spring, a recent winter thaw has already indicated the waterproofing is working. We were very impressed with the work that Dave, his crew and subcontractors did. They were flexible, knowledgeable, accommodating, professional, but most of all, did an excellent job. Our front yard was re-graded exactly as we wanted, once the work was completed. The job was done within the estimated time and was on budget.
We are now proceeding with finishing our basement. And once again, we're using Dave and his team to do the work during his off-season.

"You really cared about our project."
We just wanted to write you a quick note to let you know how happy we are with the work you and your crew did on our house. You changed our basement from a closed-in, damp, dark space to a great, bright, DRY family play area.
We’re so glad that we decided to dig out the basement floor to get some extra height, and the work you did to ensure we wouldn’t have any water or foundation problems has worked out really well. This damp summer put your modifications to the test and you passed with flying colours! Your suggestions on how to add a bathroom/laundry room combo to the basement has really improved the functionality of our home.
We also need to mention how much we enjoyed working with you and your crew. Everyone was very professional and did their best to work with us and around our growing family. (Our toddler misses you and the guys –not to mention all your cool tools, especially the excavator!) We appreciated your honest approach when it came to determining costs, and what needed and didn’t need to get done. You really cared about our project and did your best to make sure you were on time and on budget. Even months later, we’re glad we can call you if we have any questions or concerns.

"We would not hesitate to recommend him!"
We are very happy with the work done by Dave and his crew on the garage floor and foundation of our newly renovated home. He did an excellent job, in a timely manner and at a reasonable price. He was always cheerful and great to work with, providing us with all the information we needed to make relevant decisions. We would not hesitate to recommend him!

"Dave’s greatest strength is in his attention to detail."
We hired Dave on the recommendation of our cabinet maker. Probably Dave’s greatest strength is in his attention to detail. He’s also good at relationship management – with customers and other contractors – and at managing expectations. His guys were great, too.
