Our team has the experience and knowledge to protect your basement and foundation from the outside elements of Northern Ontario. We ensure a thorough assessment to establish the best water management plan possible for each property and back it up with our 5 year warranty. We cover everything including the excavation, foundation membrane, foundation repairs, weeping tile, sump pump/pit installation, discharge, backfill and finished grade. We also offer general foundation repair services whether it be wood, block, concrete or post and beam.

Before the excavation and heavy earthworks process can begin, the site must be carefully examined to make sure that the natural habitat and artifacts surrounding it are persevered throughout the excavation process. Next, the plans for the size and depth of the site are made and the excavation contractor makes drawings from them to clearly mark the excavation site’s boundaries. Once these two important steps have been taken, the excavation work can begin. This leads us to the next step; Construction! Our sub-contractors take care of the Foundation to the finish. 

The entire process includes:

We work closely with our client’s from the inception of the proposed project to assure the most efficient septic system and design. There are many factors in determining the proper system and size when preparing a design such as footprint, square footage of building, bathrooms to be used, setbacks, and more. 

Most septic systems and applications are subject to approval from our local health and city divisions. Count on our processes to select the proper system for your property.

A systematic approach to larger projects is a team effort between many people, who all have responsibilities:

  • Clients must appoint Generals who have the relevant skills, knowledge and experience.
  • Clients, with the help of the General must provide those who need it (eg, designers, contractors) with pre-construction information that can reasonably be obtained. A range of surveys and reports may be needed depending on the cope of work.
  • General Contractors must plan, manage, monitor and coordinate each sub-contractor and trade from the beginning of the project until the end to ensure safety and quality workmanship.
  • Site managers must ensure workers are supervised and are following safe working practice.
  • Sub-contractors and site workers must follow the instructions and plans given to them by those in charge of the work and ensure that their colleagues do too.
