One of the best things about cottages is how unique they are. A long stretch from the cookie-cutter suburban homes many of us are used to, cottages embrace their quirks and charm.


A customer in Minden, Ontario, had a beautiful cottage that was built directly on bedrock. Many cottages are built like this, but it leaves them susceptible to seepage where the concrete floor meets the rock. The owner noticed a small, constant amount of water seeping into the basement and decided to give us a call.


Due to the steep incline his foundation was built on, access was limited, and there was no room for a sump pump. System Design Specialist Rob Malcomson worked around these issues and was able to provide the customer with a solution.


Foreman Lucio Flores installed a WaterGuard® perimeter around the floor to catch any water and drain it. The customer already had an interior drain system in place, so Lucio connected the WaterGuard® to it. To give the space a clean look and help keep it dry, Lucio encapsulated the floor and rock with CleanSpace® Vapour Barrier.


The customer is ecstatic that his cottage is repaired. He was fearing the worst and is happy that we were able to offer an affordable, non-invasive solution.

Summertime and cottages go hand in hand. If we’re not going to our family cottage, we’re likely bugging a friend to go to theirs.


A customer in Minden Hills, Ontario, has a beautiful cottage that sits right on the lake. He noticed water was seeping into his basement, and he was growing concerned about the possibility of mould growth.


System Design Specialist Robert Langton travelled to the cottage to investigate the building. He discovered water was seeping in from the roadside wall, so he designed a waterproofing system with that in mind.


Foreman Dave Jackson and his team worked hard installing the system. A full perimeter of WaterGuard® was installed to catch any water and drain it to the brand new SuperSump®. Insulation was placed on the walls for extra warmth in the winter, and an Aprilaire® Dehumidifier was used to control the high humidity levels.


The customer is thrilled with the new sump pump system. His family and he can go to and from the cottage each week without the worry of water entering their basement and creating mould.

Fast & Affordable Concrete Repair

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Minden home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse with time, but we can fix it for you!

Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam to provide reliable concrete lifting & leveling solutions. Small holes are drilled in the concrete and the expansion of the foam lifts & levels the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, requires larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel.

If your home has cracked concrete steps, pool decks, patios, or other slabs, then NexusPro is the right solution. NexusPro repairs concrete cracks and joints and is ultra-durable, so it will withstand UV rays, extreme weather, and more.

After utilizing our expert concrete repair solutions, consider the powerful concrete sealant, SealantPro. SealantPro further protects your concrete by bonding with it to guard against oil, gasoline, liquids, and other debris. In just one coat, SealantPro extends the life of your concrete by 3 to 5 times overall. 

Call us today to learn more about our proven concrete leveling, cracked concrete repair, and concrete sealing techniques.

On one corner of the house we have water leaking in . It only happens in the winter and two years ago after it had happened during the winter once the group was thawed I dug down to the drainage gravel and re-tarred the wall where I thought the water might be coming in. However, with the warm temperatures and rain the last two days the water is going in again. I don't get it we are in sandy soil with good drainage.

I have a leak in my foundation. The basement is finished and during heavy rains, spring, the carpet is wet and mold is growing on the drywall. Do you do repairs from the inside? Outside would be possible too but would have to be dug by hand as it would be very difficult to get any size excavator to the leaking corner. Thanks
