This man-made storm water retention lake required viewing platforms and boardwalk. Single length galvanized piles were designed to handle both downward loads and uplift loads. Originally we tendered this project to be done after the lake was pumped down during the summer months. Due to scheduling issues on the part of the developer, the project was not given a green light until late fall. This meant that we would have to do the project during the winter months if we wanted the job. We would need to come up with an approach for installing these piles during the coldest part of the winter.
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.

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.

We have had our fair share of unremarkable and even troublesome experiences with other contractors, so you guys were certainly a breath of fresh air. An honest contractor, bang on with the timeline, finished on time, within budget, your "nothing is too much trouble" attitude...and a job well done.
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.
