I was dealing with an issue in my basement where water seemed to be coming in slowly. I hired a plumber to come in and have a look and they charged me a fair chunk just to tell me it was I drain tile issue.
So I contacted Bob at Drainrock who came out straight away to have a look and he gave me some advice just to make sure the issue I was having was related to drain tile. He told me to remove a bunch of gyprock to see where the water was coming in from and send him pictures. He came back and had to look with me and turns out the problem was not coming from the drain tile but from a pipe further up. That means the plumber was wrong.
Bob didn't charge me for the inspections he was only going to assess and make sure the issue required his services. If upon that second inspection it indicated it was a drain tile issue, he would have been came back with scopes to look through the drains in our area to see if all it needed was a cleaning before moving on to the next step. He was a consummate professional, super friendly and wasn't in it just to make the money... he wanted to make sure he was delivering the right service.
I cannot recommend this company enough!

Sump Dump was cleaned out and drainage perimeter was flushed clear and cleaned - works perfectly now! Justin and his trainee was exceptional, professional and very knowledgeable. They took their time to educate me on the entire drainage system and upkeep for my house. After 15+ years of neglect from previous owners, they pulled out a 12+ feet of roots clogging my drains - Wowza! what a shocker to see the monster-size roots!
Bob was quick to come by for a quote and consult and the work was done shortly after. They are all around good people with a passion for what they do. Would highly recommend them to anyone! You MUST call this family-owned and operated business first - will be the best money you will spend on your home!

We recently contracted Drainrock to help us repair and flush blocked patio and perimeter drains. Our front patio has a central drain that turns into a lake whenever it rains. After several years and many attempts to clear the connected "Big-O" pipes (which I personally think should be banned from use), I decided to replace an old 30 foot section with new 4 inch PVC pipe.
Drainrock (Bob), came to discuss the work and provide a quote. The following week, two of his crew (Brendan and Nick) spent a day digging, installing new pipe, and doing a very thorough job of cleaning all the perimeter pipes on that side of the house.
We couldn't be more pleased to have the work done and the way they did it. Being a bit picky about quality work and value, I tend to expect something to go haywire but every step of the process went smoothly, and all of the Drainrock people were easy to work with and helped make the job a success.
The only minor glitch was with a missing connector they needed for their flushing pump but Brendan was able to find a substitute part and it didn't cause any significant delay.
If we have any other drainage related problems in future, Drainrock will be our first choice and we are happy to recommend them to others.

Five years ago our basement flooded and Drainrock responded very quickly for cleanup and installation of an outdoor sump. They also did a video inspection of our 80-year-old perimeter drainage. Finding several broken or cracked tiles, they said the system would still function but suggested a complete replacement when possible. That project has just been completed.
Bob Wilde's quote included an estimate of 10 days, and they were finished on day 9. The project was fully done to code and passed a City inspection with no problems.
We've lived in the house 28 years so there's a lot of plants that could have been damaged during trenching, but we were most impressed with the care they took to work around them. In our estimation, Drainrock minimized plant loss about as much as was possible.
Our second project with Drainrock Industries was just as satisfactory as the first one five years ago, and we fully recommend them.

Having used Drainrock in the past, and being highly impressed with their work, Bob was the first one we called when we found water leaking into our basement crawl space. Bob came out and had a look, and since we knew from their past inspection that we had some issues with the perimeter drains on the north side of the house, it was decided the best idea was to replace the drains on that side.
The crew, which included Bob’s sons, arrived a couple of days later. They replaced all the crushed and plugged Big O piping with PVC. They also repaired some cracks in the foundation, dampproofed the wall, and then installed Dimple board to provide a completely waterproof wall. After they refilled the trench, they flushed out the entire system and then dealt with a couple of other issues we had.
We were highly impressed again with the workmanship and the finished product, but what impressed us even more was the crew themselves. They were all hardworking, polite, and respectful young men.
Bob and Vanessa, you should be very proud of not only your sons, but also the rest of your crew as well. What a great group of guys.
We have already, and will continue to recommend this great family business to everyone we can.

Had called Drainrock Industries to solve a water leak in my basement that another company (Drainmaster) couldn't resolve. Drainrock took care of the issue discovering Drainmaster did not do a proper job. I highly recommend Drainrock Industries and never will use the highly and most advertised companies. Very professional by Drainrock Industries!
Thank you for taking time to write a review about your experience with Drainrock Industries. You were referred to us through a friend of yours that had previously used our services and was happy to share their experience. Unfortunately, the first drainage contractor you hired did not measure floor height elevations and installed new perforated PVC drainage approximately 10" above the height of the floor slab in the basement. Perimeter drain tile is intended to be installed with the top of the pipe below the bottom of the floor slab at the high point of the system, controlling the water table and preventing water ingress. From all of us at Drainrock Industries we thank you.

We were having some major flooding issues inside our building. We contacted Drainrock Industries for a quotation. They came out and surveyed the issues, issued a quotation and we approved the work. Their crew showed up on time, resolved the one issue we had to our great satisfaction. We then had them come back for another issue and it was also solved to our great satisfaction. Crew and owner are awesome people that take time to explain everything. Would recommend them to anyone needing repairs. Very reliable, dependable, friendly.
Thank you for your kind review about our family business. It is the most rewarding part of this business to know that we have been able to help people through this tough time. COVID has caused stress and anxiety for all of us, but we are thankful that we were able to develop a safe plan to work and help people with their water ingress problems. From all of us at Drainrock Industries, we thank you.

Bob was on time and professional. Quoted us a great rate to clean out our perimeter drains. His crew showed up when they said they were going to, were fast, and professional. For added peace of mind, they scoped the lines to show us they were clear. In and out in half a day.
Highly recommend Drain Rock Industries and Bob.

I had significant problems with Drainage issues at my Father's House. Bob at Drainrock was highly recommended.
Bob went above and beyond to not only to fix the issue, but also made recommendations on who to contact for complete repairs. He even volunteered to speak with the potential buyer to put them at ease.
Bob is one of those individuals who immediately puts you at ease with his many years of experience and knowledgeable assessment of the issues. He immediately gave me a confidence level that he knew exactly what needed to be done. He was also as good as his word with respect to arriving on time and on budget!
I would highly recommend Bob and his team at Drainrock!

Our nearly 75 year-old drainage system was at the end of its life and it was a matter of time before it became a serious problem. Most of the downspouts were draining against the house foundation and the sump in the basement was not taking in water from the perimeter. Bob, Rylan and the team were able to do repairs to all the rain water leaders and replace the old interior sump with a new, to-code external one.
The team was very professional, were able to manage my expectations around the possibility of unexpected issues (it was a 75 year old system after all), and work through the significant delays in the City's permit process. Their clean-up was thorough as well.
I would not hesitate to recommend Drainrock Industries.
