Two story 1940’s home in Millcreek Ravine with walkout end in Edmonton that had evidence of foundation movement and settlement over a portion of the walkout end of the foundation. The owner was selling the property and needed to have the foundation stabilized. We assessed the pattern of settlement and put together an Engineered Plan for Underpinning Remediation using our Proprietary Steel Pipe Push Pile Technology.
(After a record-breaking rainfall in July 2012 and days before we were leaving on vacation, we returned home and) found that our basement was flooded...The Abarent team had done what I thought was impossible. They installed the weeping tile in two days over the long weekend and on a very tight deadline. Their crew was very professional and know what they were doing... Two days before our vacation, the project was complete and we were able to leave and enjoy our family vacation without worrying about flooding.
Access to the site was a challenge. Material to be removed and replaced had to be loaded into wheelbarrows and pushed uphill and down. It was an arduous undertaking and the men on the job worked very hard. The work ethic and discipline of the crew was impressive. As well, we were very pleased with the workmanship and clean-up following completion of the project.

Abarent provided a 3-page, itemized list of the specific work to be done at each stage of the project, including descriptions of optional issues (including additional costs) that might arise during the work. The company president did the initial walk-through for their estimate and later went through it, line by line. He pointed out potential problems and things we had to prepare for during the work (extra cracks, concrete dust, effects on neighbors, etc.)... Repairing a foundation is a very traumatic event for any householder because all of your house investment is (literally!) in the air. If you have to do it, call Abarent. They are professional - we cannot recommend them highly enough.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done. After this past weekend's deluge, our basement was left completely dry.
