Aquatech was wonderful right from the first contact to having Richard come out and give us a very complete and detailed quote to the two man crew who were here exactly on time and completed the day hours ahead of time. All the locates were taken care of and within a week of contacting them the job was completed. The workman did a fabulous job and were very respectful of our property. They reviewed the scope of the work before they started and asked if we had any questions. When the work was complete it was difficult to see where they had worked and dug the trench. Everything was tidier than before they started. We are very impressed and in a world where household repair companies can be less than favourable, Aquatech stands head and shoulders above any of them. We would highly recommend this company. We also have a life time transferable warranty too. Bravo. We will definitely be telling all the people we know about our wonderful experience. Thank you.

We had a flood disaster the day after we got the keys for our new home. Aquatech Waterproofing responded to my request for help quickly and came to access the damages the same day. They gave us several options for repairs as well as prevention that were fairly priced and a quick turnaround time. They executed our chosen plan quickly and did a beautiful job. They have been very responsive, answering questions about the products we chose and we recommend them to anyone that needs quality work done in a timely manner. Very compassionate and empathetic for our situation as well.

AquaTech is very professional and reliable. Valentina was very friendly, she scheduled the appointment at a convenient time and Nico came out to look at my problem. He diagnosed it and gave me a reasonable price. We went ahead with the job. The crew that came out to do it was very knowledgeable and professional. I had some questions and Igor explained everything to me with no problem. I highly recommend this company. Thank you AquaTech!

EXCELLENT experience. Andrew was the first one to arrive and was extremely kind and helpful. Igor and Basil joined Andrew a few minutes later and all three of them worked very hard and finished this massive job in one day. These are some of the hardest workers I have ever seen. There were no hassles or surprises and Andrew, Igor and Basil were very skilled and courteous. Also, Nico was VERY flexible with our constant changes of plans and was very accommodating and understanding. An excellent experience all around - could not recommend more highly!

Much thanks & appreciation to Slava & his hardworking crew for their excellent job excavating, installing weeping tiles & pipe, repairing cracks, waterproofing, and backfilling the 7'-deep trench 27' along the full side of our home.
