    By Evelyn M.
    Hamilton, ON

    I had heard about your company and knew of two houses that your company had waterproofed. Now for the price, I had two other contractors come in to price the job. The first one went to the wrong address and had no financing; while the second was a small company who continued to tell me that he did as good a job as the 'big' companies, he didn't have financing though his price was about half of what this job cost. I was never sent a quote from this company and the overall feeling I got was not good. But when Dave walked in and we discussed the process, financing was approved in less than five minutes - probably a shorter amount of time. I felt his confidence in the product he was selling and the company he represented. His affiable nature meant that despite cost, you were a reputable company with a design on doing everything to meet any customer's needs. Exactly what I wanted and needed to hear. The installation crew was exceptional, explaining what they were doing and cleaning up behind themselves every day. They were professional and easy-going. All of this means that you have a company that is happy and happy companies make customers happy! Thank you!

    David Rademaker was thorough in his outline of the different aspects of waterproofing and installing a sump pump. I had read the literature ahead of time, so I had an idea of what to expect. He came to the site when there were problems the first day, which was much appreciated; we had spoken at length and I felt we understood each other.

    You workers were efficient and polite, they were clean and professional. They walked me through what they were going to be doing in the basement.  Both the sales staff and the project coordinator (Jocelyn) were amazing and fantastic. They were communicative and open and informative.  We had you recommended to us by our general contractor. As a result of our initial meeting with our sales guy David we were hooked. He was informative and friendly and told us exactly what we needed and explained every step of the process.

              David was kind, friendly and very thorough. Analyzed, measured and explained everything to me on what would be the best solution for my basement problem. :) Gord and his crew (Andrew and Baron) were polite, courteous and professional. Protected my floors and walls. His team was clean, efficient, knowledgeable; ensuring I knew the system and the backup battery system operation. Gord's crew works like a well oiled machine. So pleased with them. When jackhammering, the debris was removed as they worked making the littlest amount of dust. They cleaned up and you would never have known they were here. Friend of mine used Omni Basement Systems and gave the company a rave review.

  • "The workmen were professional and they left the site as clean as when they arrived." Read Full Testimonial

    David D. of Oakville, ON

    Customer Testimonial

              I had a 1950s house with a sump pit and pump that was undersized. After a sump overflow and trying with several plumbing services (with limited success) to bring it up to modern standards I contacted Omni Basement Systems that specialize solving basement water issues. They dug and installed a new sump, pump and back up system. The workmen were professional and they left the site as clean as when they arrived. I had exactly the same experience when I had a sewage backwater valve installed recently. An improvement would be to have the sump pump high water and backup alarm systems send out a message by wifi. The audible alarms don't do any good when you aren't home to hear them. I have several other devices from wall plug timers to my Nest thermostat that message my phone when something is wrong so the technology exists, is inexpensive, with no need to have a home alarm system installed or anything.

As is with all crawlspaces, it needed encapsulation which is a vapor barrier over the ground to protect the house from the earth's moisture.

    Jim D. called to say that he had a 120 year old farmhouse in Pt. Colborne with a crawlspace. The farmhouse is rented out and the tenants complained about smells coming from the dirt floor crawlspace and the amount of constant dust in the house. 

    Omni Basement systems came and to do a free inspection. Omni recommended three products as a plan of action. 

    first job was to encapsulate the crawlspace to separate the dirt floor from the airspace. This is done by installing 20mil thick Cleanspace over the floor and up the walls and wrapping the piers. This works much better than just applying 6mil poly on hte floor which ca can come off easily when crawled. The Cleanspace will never com off the walls or floor because it is mechanically fastened and has cord reinforcement built in. The Cleanspace features a product called ultrafresh built right in which acts as a anti-microbial to eliminate mold growth. 

    Step Two was to add Sanidry Sedona Dehumidifation sytem to protect the building materials, reduce odours and lower the humidity. 

    The fianl step was to add supplemental support to the main beam with 3.5" diameter fully gavanized SmartJacks
