I am always being asked by my clients to recommend local contractors in the Almonte and Carleton Place area for a variety of “repairs” – from bat removal from attics to building a deck to installing eavestrough to home-cleaning services to foundation fixes.
I love to “shop local” and make a point of connecting with honest, reliable, fair contractors who understand customer service so I love to be able to share good names with my clients, knowing they will receive excellent service.
With all the rain we have had this spring and summer (and continue to have because it’s raining again today) – I recently had the need of a foundation expert, on a long-weekend. Who did I call? I called Ben Tuck, a sole proprietor from Minix Water Proofing. Ben is a local fellow that I have known for several years now. I have had him look at small jobs such as cracks in garage floors, to surface cracks in brand-new homes, to very large cracks in concrete porches (which Ben advised me was outside his league but referred me to someone else who could handle the job!)
What I like most about Ben is that his approach to looking at a job is so practical. He looks for the long-term fix based on his extensive experience, what he knows will work. He doesn’t come into a job and try to line up his next month by making a small job into a big job! He is very calm, practical, no-nonsense, and you end up feeling very informed and confident that he will do the best job for you.
He proposed an excellent fix on this most recent “call for help” and my clients are delighted with his quote and pricing. So, if you have some foundation or concrete concerns, I don’t hesitate to recommend Ben Tuck from Minix…. And don’t forget to tell him I sent you!
