This is one of the best, if not the best, company I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. We had a crack in the wall above a large picture window—the support installed during the window installation was under-sized. The Foundation Experts Inc. easily addressed this and some other concerns of the house I asked about. Alex was by several times or in contact by phone or email to ensure I understood what was happening and if I had any questions. The architect, Trench, was very much hands-on during the initial assessment once the wall was opened up and again for a final assessment and approval before everything was closed up. I have nothing but praise for Noah, Leonard and Stephen who worked diligently making sure I understood what was happening, about to happen and when. Most importantly, everyone that worked on this project was polite, professional and respectful at all times. A final comment: this project was started and finished, including clean-up and painting in 2 calendar weeks, that included the Easter holidays—I think that is phenomenal for a project of this size. When they left, it's like they were never here, and now I have peace of mind at last. Thank you, Alex, and to your crew! I'd happily recommend and refer this company to anyone!

This review comes a bit late (for work done in summer 2022) but I promised Alex (the owner of The Foundation Experts) that I would write one. After getting a few quotes, we chose The Foundation Experts to enlarge our two basement windows and create proper window wells where none existed. Of course, it was very important to find a company that is professional and highly experienced. Alex was great and he put our minds at ease by being easy to communicate with, pleasant, with fair pricing and demonstrating high knowledge and attention to detail. After a small delay (to be expected in this field yet Alex was always very honest and forthcoming), Alex and his crew showed up in early Aug 2022 and worked hard and yet very attentively to minimize any disruptions. I appreciated that Alex was on-site for pretty much the entire job. When a small lateral foundation crack was found, he explained what we could expect (both best and worse case scenarios - which fortunately turned out to be just a minor repair). Alex also took care of coordinating with the concrete cutting / removal contractor. Once the job was completed, the crew picked up everything, and even cleaned our driveway and the road. A few days later, our window company came and installed our new windows without any issues. Everything has been fine so far, and we love the extra sunlight and fresh air in our basements. I was impressed by The Foundation Experts and I would not hesitate to recommend them! Very professional and top notch! Merci Alex!
Alex and Noah did great work repairing our foundation issues. Their work was top notch, and communication was excellent. Alex took the time to keep me informed on the process, which was greatly appreciated. Highly recommended.

When I found cracks in my foundation I called The Foundation Experts and they were quick to come and assess the problem. Alex was great in explaining to me the problem, and explaining in detail the type of work that would be done. Big jobs like this can be stressful but Alex and his team reduced that stress by making things go as smooth as possible. Being given a breakdown each day as to what was going to be done was great, and the team were always extremely friendly and hard working. The Foundation Experts truly are working for you in fixing your home and the team is always there for any questions along the way. Thanks again for making this project seamless and smooth!

Alex and crew were great to deal with. They were prompt and professional, completing the work as discussed and in a timely way. They ran into an unforeseen issue (not their fault) that caused a slight delay and kept me well-informed of everything that was going on. I also appreciated Alex's advice on other issues I had with my house. I'd recommend the Foundation Experts without hesitation.

Alex and his team performed underpinning (summer 2020) along my entire front foundation wall. Alex is very professional and explained how the work would be performed. Engineers were verifying every step, and the job was done perfectly, on cost, and a head of schedule. For this major job to have been done so smoothly is really impressive. Thank you Alex and team!

Frequently Asked Questions

Will You Repair the Entire Foundation?

If your entire foundation needs to be stabilized or waterproofed and repaired to prevent future damage, we will provide you with an effective and lasting solution that ensures your safety and the marketability of your home. Every project that we take on includes a thorough and honest inspection, followed by our recommendation for the work that is required. We never make false claims or engage in band-aid solutions. Quality work and customer satisfaction are our priorities.

Is Foundation Waterproofing Really Necessary?

If moisture can seep through the foundation and collect in your basement, it can lead to mold growth that can cause serious health problems and further damage to your home. Basement waterproofing provides a protective barrier on the exterior foundation walls to prevent water infiltration that can lead to mold and other foundation issues. Nobody wants a wet basement caused by poor foundation waterproofing (or incorrect sump pump installation) for that mater.

When Should I Get My Stone Foundation Inspected?

Small issues can quickly escalate, especially if you own an older home with a stone foundation. That’s why you should arrange to have a foundation inspection as soon as any moisture, deterioration or movement is suspected to diagnose any issues that could need repair now. We offer the necessary repairs for tiered armour stone foundations as well.

How Do You Determine If Something Needs Repair?

Our team of experts will come to your home and conduct a thorough on-site inspection to determine the problem and all the relevant risks. We’ll then offer a cost-effective solution to repair your home based on the type of repair required. Our Ottawa foundation repair Company has foundation contractors trained to provide the highest level of skilled foundation repair work. We check for foundation cracks. We can look at your basement walls, your basement floor. When you wake up to a few surprises, we’re here to offer you reliable solutions while maintaining structural integrity.

How Long Does a Foundation Repair Take?

The average residential foundation repairs can take between 2 to 3 days, but some projects may take additional time to complete.

You will receive a written estimate and regular updates throughout the entire process. Your residential foundation repair in Ottawa is in good hands with us.

How much does it cost to repair a concrete foundation?

The cost to repair a concrete foundation varies on the work that is required. Often, we are unable to provide an exact quote for our services before excavation and engineering take place. The cause of the problem needs to be identified before we can provide repair specifications specific to the cause.

Can a slab foundation be repaired?

You may have a foundation issue, structural damage or a foundation crack. Our residential foundation repair company is qualified to work on any foundation cracks.

Ottawa foundation repair can be broken down in to different areas like foundation restoration, foundation waterproofing, foundation crack repair, basement waterproofing or other house produced foundation repair issues. Your best bet is to reach out to your Cities leading foundation repair expert to hear what their recommending City foundation issues are.

What are the first signs of foundation problems?

Foundation problems can be issues with water infiltration, structural movement, breaking of the foundation and deterioration. These types of repairs require immediate attention as they affect other components of the structure and affect the overall value of a property.

Is it safe to buy a house with foundation issues?

Anything can be repaired. What’s important to consider is what exactly needs to be repaired and how much the requirements might cost. Typically if it’s a structural issue, exploratory work would be included in the conditions of purchase. It’s wise to have a pre-purchase inspection by a qualified foundation repair professional.

What happens if you don't fix foundation issues?

What we can guarantee is that foundation problems do not get better. We can predict based on the history of the home what could happen if the foundation is not repaired.

From our experience, lending institutions and insurance company’s are wary of any properties with structural and water issues and even more so lately. We recommend dealing with any crack repair or that you get your foundation repaired before an inspector arrives.

Does Foundation Repair affect home value?

Foundation repairs can greatly improve the value of a home when completed by a professional organization that stands behind it’s warranties.

What if we've just had newly completed landscaping?

Unfortunately most of our services such as foundation crack injections, waterproofing services, foundation restoration or concrete foundation repair require us to dig in to the ground to gain access. Basement leaks and wet basements caused by a cracked foundation require us to gain access from the outside in many cases. That said, our top notch foundation repair contractors are only going to remove the minimum amount of required soil to complete the work which will have minimal impact. We will speak with you about weeping tile replacement and are always extremely helpful to provide a successful outcome.
