The work included digging down to the foundation and installing a membrane to seal cracks in the foundation, high pressure flushing of the perimeter drainage. tiles as well as diverting two downspouts away from the house.
Drainrock did all of the work in the promised time and within the quoted price.

After researching a number of companies online and on the Homestars website, we decided to give Drainrock Industries a call. We knew that one of our neighbours had had work done by Drainrock and that they were very impressed by them. We had a crack in our foundation and also had water getting into our crawl space. Bob Wilde, the owner, came over to have a look. He explained what his company would do. He said they would totally flush the perimeter drains of the house, and then run a camera thru them to check for any problem areas. They would also dig up the area near the foundation crack, chisel it out, fill it with hydraulic cement, then apply 2 coats of foundation damp-proofing tar, and finally install a waterproof membrane over the area.
We received the quote the same day. We called the next morning to make arrangements for the work to be done. When the crew arrived they got right to the task at hand. The job was completed in one day and everything was done exactly as was described in the quote. They dealt with a few minor problems using their hydro flush system and they also dug a second hole to address a problem where one piece of the pipe was plugged preventing the water from draining properly. I was out with the crew most of the day, watching them work and watching the camera as they ran it thru our drainage system. They explained what they were seeing and answered any questions I had. They even provided us with a narrated copy of the camera inspection of our perimeter drain system on a USB drive. When they left everything had been cleaned up and the yard looked just like it had when they arrived.
We were totally impressed by Drainrock Industries and would not hesitate in using them again. We will definitely recommend them to anyone we know who needs this kind of work.
Bob and Vanessa. You guys run a Top Notch company in our books. Rylan, Cody, and Cole are great, hardworking ,young men. You should be very proud having employees like them.

My husband and I bought an old house, knowing we needed to the full drain tile right away, but with no idea what that meant or where to go. We found great reviews here, and we're so happy with the final product.
From start to finish Bob and his teams were great: guiding us through the process seamlessly; clear about the scope of work, options and issues; quick to communicate when we had questions; managed a couple glitches with the city, without needing to engage us (while keeping us informed). They installed a really great system, worked through frozen ground and massive rain, and made sure the crew repairing ripped up sidewalks and stairs did an excellent job.
Bob's wife, Vanessa, who handles the payments was lovely and friendly. The workers on the crew were really nice. And they took a job that felt a little overwhelming and turned it into a seamless project that had minimal impact on our family and space.

Over time we had been experiencing floods in our crawlspace, more frequently as time progressed. Drainrock Industries was contacted and they cleaned out our perimeter drains and did a video inspection. It became apparent that the outgoing drain feed to the city was plugged by roots. Drainrock was able to remove the roots on our side of the property line but it was apparent that some more existed on the city side. It was found a tree had been planted right over the outlet, which was the cause. Because Drainrock had discovered the problem we were able to call the city and they were convinced to remove the tree, root and installed an Inspection Port which cleared away the remaining problems.read more

Arrived as scheduled. Located our perimeter drain sump and flushed, connected down pipe to drain. They were very courteous and performed quality work in a timely manner. Their flexibility allowed me to perform some of the work myself. Thanks to Bob and his crew.read more

I just had the ruptured water supply pipe replaced by Bob's courteous and professional crew. They arrived on time, located the cause of the rupture, and replaced the PB pipe with a higher quality PEX pipe. Not only did his team complete the repair job ahead of time, the final cost was also less than what was originally quoted. Kudos to Bob and his crew for repairing the ruptured line on very short notice and restoring my water service just before Christmas! I would definitely recommend Drainrock for fixing your drainage problems!read more

We have Drainrock Industries routinely perform maintenance flushing on our drain tile as we get a build up of iron oxide in our drain tile and they are always prompt and professional. We will be calling them again for any future work we need done.read more

We had a total install of drain tiles and a new waste line. Also a new concrete walk and small back patio were put in to replace the old ones that were removed during the job. Bob's estimate was precise and he kept to it; the job was done on time (actually, ahead of time); the crew was utterly friendly and very respectful of our home; they answered all questions; the work was very professional; and the price was right: I had 4 estimates and Drainrock's was by far the most economical.
They also did the work in a manner that was not disruptive at all. It was a big and potentially messy job but it barely impacted our lives, which was much appreciated because we work from home.
I'd recommend Drainrock in a heartbeat to anyone. Great people.

Bob arrived on time and provided answers to all of my questions. Within a day he sent me a detailed quotation for the required work to be done and we then scheduled a day that was suitable to meet my schedule. The Drainrock team arrived right on schedule and got right to work. I was very impressed with their work ethic and willingness to take time to answer all of my questions. They even made suggestions on how to care for my drain tiles and what to look for in future. My yard was left spotless and you would never know that any work had been done. This is a quality contractor and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Great to hire a quality local, family operated company.read more
