Ottawa Structural Residential Services Ltd.

Testimonials

I want to acknowledge the professionalism and quality of work that was performed by Ottawa Structural Residential Services on our foundation replacement and waterproofing. The job was significant in scope and duration, involving many subcontractors, and throughout the process the crew and staff were superb in their work, management of the project, accommodation of our requests and concerns and courtesy towards our family and neighbours. The end result was a new (and dry!) foundation. We truly appreciate the team at OSRS, and the quality job they performed.

What began as a stressful situation, namely finding a small leak in our basement foundation, ended on an extremely positive note after dealing with Ottawa Structural Residential Services. Indeed, the General Manager, Michael O'Neil, was prompt to respond to our call, was extremely clear as to what was recommended to address the problem during the initial site visit and had a team on the ground promptly. As noteworthy as Mr. O'Neil's response was the crew who carried out the work - their professionalism, hard work, orderly and systematic approach went a long way in easing what is an inherently stressful situation. Their attention to detail also carried forward to their clean-up of the site that left the area better looking than when work began.

We discovered a crack (or a seam from the pouring of the foundation by the builder), when we were having the foundation re-parged by another company. The work provided by OSRS was professional and the price did not shift upwards if they discovered more to be done. They obtained the necessary clearances from hydro, gas, etc which means that they are responsible if something happens. They dug down by hand to the footings, within 1 foot of gas and watering system controls, all within the time specified, and without incident. The team removed the dirt and provided new material to fill the hole. They also left us some mulch to replace the landscaping which had to be removed, which we will replace in the spring as the work was done in late November. They provided a written guarantee for 10 years. We did not have any water in the basement prior to discovering this crack, and do not expect to see any afterwards. We do expect to see less spiders making a home in the crack. Thanks. Well done. We would recommend to anyone.

I was referred to Ottawa Structural Residential Services by my realtor to help address a vertical crack in my homes foundation. We had minor water penetration, but obviously it needed immediate attention. Ron from OSRS showed up as scheduled and on time, and had the crack injected and the job done in about an hour. End of the leaking! Ron was very professional, took time to explain the process, and was very neat and tidy. The injection repair process is very impressive and makes for an efficient and low cost repair. Very pleased with the work and result.

OSR did something that most companies don't seem to do these days. They called to say they were coming, they arrived when they said they would and completed the work in a courteous and professional manner, kept me informed of the progress and cleaned up after themselves. Would highly recommend this company.

My husband and I called Ottawa Structures to assist us with a damp spot that was where the wall and floor met in our basement. It was about 8-12 inches long and damp, but no water coming from it. We were selling our house and needed it fixed properly, professionally and quickly. We had at least 4 estimates that were pretty similar but we were really comfortable with Mike, who came to do our estimate. He was very knowledgeable, reassuring and most of all able to fit us in pretty quickly for this job. If we had any questions we spoke to Mike or Jen at Ottawa Structures, who got our locates done in good time and the job finished before the estimated completion time. We were very happy with job, the staff and appreciated how careful they were about the job and left my property in better shape than before the digging began. They were able to identify the problem (which was a puzzle) fixed it, waterproofed it and the damp spot disappeared and never came back. We sold our house 4 weeks later and provided the new owners with the transferable warranty. Thank you Ottawa Structures for taking care of our property in a timely, efficient, professional and pleasant manner. We would recommend this company to anyone looking to have work done, especially if you are selling your house and want a reputable company to fix your property with care. Thank you Mike and Jen, again, we are very grateful!

I used OSRS twice for a triplex and an investment property. One job was complex and OSRS did the job competently. The other job was more straightforward. Both basements have not leaked since repairs were undertaken. Quality materials used throughout. Staff are competent.

I waited a while before posting this because I wanted to ensure my issue was resolved. A competitor had quoted me 20K to dig out the entire perimeter of the house, water proof etc. Not in my budget. I contacted this company and they proposed an alternative- 2 years later still no water coming in. Very pleased all in all.

Ottawa Structural Residential Services Ltd. has served many homes and businesses for 32+ years and has been commended time and time again for our hard work and professionalism.

"The purpose of this letter is to express our appreciation for the work you just completed on our foundation.

I have been impressed by the total professionalism at every step of the process, from your first visit to assess the problem to completion of the project. You inspired confidence and explained the job required clearly and completely, keeping in contact as the project progressed so that we were consulted and informed at every stage of the work. Your workers were competent, polite, hard working and safety conscious and left the side at end of each day clean and tidy and ready to begin promptly the next morning. No time was wasted.

But probably what impressed me most was your attention to detail and your willingness to go that extra distance to make sure that we were 100% pleased with the end result.

I would heartily recommend your firm to anyone looking for a contractor who conducts every aspect of the work with the highest degree of professionalism and respect."

"For the record, I want to report on the outstanding work we feel privileged to have experienced during two separate jobs, in two different locations

My husband and I especially appreciated and valued:

  • The quality of the workmanship
  • The care and attention to detail
  • The attention to safety of the workers, our family, the public, etc
  • The professionalism of the teams
  • The work ethic of the teams
  • The knowledge, wisdom and various skill sets of the team members
  • The communication - so obvious between the parts of the team and the various people working on the job sites and their direct and honest communication with us on the "big and "little" stuff
  • The cleanup of the sites each day
  • The pride the team takes in their work
  • Keeping the promised schedule
  • The president's word - he does what he says he will do.

Ottawa Structural sets an exacting standard in their work."

"Thank you for an excellent job, and for superior customer relations. I wish all contractors maintained as professional and courteous an attitude as your people did, without exception.

If the opportunity arises, I will be happy to do business with your company again."

"Rarely does someone sing the praises of their contractor. In my limited experience, most people have contractor-horror stories to share. But after dealing with your company, I am pleased to report otherwise.

Your company promptly addressed the longstanding structural problems in my new house with expertise and the utmost professionalism.

I am a happy client, Mr. O'Neill. A happy client, happy to refer your services to others who may require them."

"We would like to express our sincere appreciation and thanks to all of those who worked on the repairs to the foundation of our home. Everyone was very professional and thoughtful in their approach to the situation and we were very pleased with how careful they were regarding the minimum of mess and disruption created during the entire period. They were all very courteous and polite and left things as tidy and clean as possible after each work period."

"We are very pleased with the service we have already received from you and look forward to the actual project. On the basis of what we've seen to date, we are quite sure that we will be writing an appreciative letter to the Better Business Bureau when the contracts are finished."

"Please be advised that it is not often that I feel compelled to comment on any service for which I have contracted, however there are exceptions.

Good service is expected from any service provider; however all too often the only comment an employer hears from the field are complaints about his employees or about the quality of work performed.

It was apparent from the outset that your company's reputation did in fact speak for itself. You see, OSR Services Ltd. came highly recommended to us by a number of persons involved in the construction field.

I would like to end this short note formally thanking you for a job well done. My wife and I were very impressed with the service rendered by your company, and we wish to assure you that we will not hesitate to recommend OSR to anyone who may require your services."

"This is your well-deserved chorus of praise from two very satisfied clients. You and your company were everything we had hoped for, as a result of your most professional presentation.

This was a fairly complicated project involving underpinning the corner of our house and excavating the whole perimeter to install a drainage system with insulation.

Your team was competent, conscientious, organized, clean, tidy, friendly and extremely helpful. They ensured that the contract was not only fulfilled, but exceeded.

We hope not to need your excellent services again, but if we do we shall not contact anyone else."

"We would like to express our complete satisfaction with the patio and repair work that you have just completed for us at our house; it was done beautifully, professionally, and, just as you promised, the job site was thoroughly cleaned up afterward.

You set and live up to the highest standards of your trade. But, you do more, much more.

This was the second time we had dealt with your company. The first time had been for some water leaks in our basement, and this time we turned to you for some beautification project.

As a Business Professor, I will continue to tell my students about the way Ottawa Structural Residential Services Ltd. actually makes customer service a way of doing business, beyond the slogans that so many companies use."

"From the outset, the professional approach of this team made us realize that we were in the hands of experts, who had our best interests at heart.

A major concern for us was cost. We were provided with a cost estimate early in the process, and we are pleased to say that the contractor stayed within his estimate. There were no cost overruns.

We particularly want to praise the team of workmen who did the actual repair work. From the Project Supervisor to the labourers who did the digging, they were a dedicated bunch of workers. They were friendly, worked steadily and took pains, even with the little things, to do a good job.

This is the first time we have ever written such a letter, and we want you to know how satisfied we are with the work of Ottawa Structural Residential Services."

"We hired Ottawa Structural Residential Services Ltd. to do repairs to the foundation of our house. We hired the company after a long search, and are very pleased that we found it. Unlike our experience with some other companies, personnel at Ottawa Structural returned our phone calls promptly, showed up for appointments, and gave estimates and quotes when they said they would. Everyone with whom we dealt at Ottawa Structural was courteous, professional and prompt. The work was explained clearly, all our questions were answered, and both before and after our signing the contract, the President, Vice-President and site manager always had time to talk with us about the job. Workers were polite and respected our living space, the site manager was organized, trustworthy and talented, and the job was done within the promised time to very high standards. And everything was left as clean as it started.

Personnel of Ottawa Structural Residential Services Ltd. made this experience, which could have been quite difficult, much easier.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ottawa Structural Residential Services Ltd. to other homeowners."

"I came to your company through a combination of the yellow pages and a vague comment from a co-worker that he thought you did an embassy near his place in Sandy Hill and he had heard you were good.

I was very impressed with your staff. The gentleman in charge at the house was communicative, responsive, professional and tidy.

Finally you completed the work in the time and budget allowed.

All in all, this was one of the least painful experiences I have ever had with a contractor in the course of renovating my home."

"I wish to take this time to say that my wife and I are extremely pleased with the work performed. We would not hesitate to recommend your firm to others requiring similar work.

I was extremely pleased that your employees not only solved the immediate problem, crack in the basement wall; identified a situation, partially blocked weeping tiles, that would have caused problems in the future but also recommended a cost effective solution."

"We would like to thank both your staff and yourself for the outstanding job done in waterproofing and re-pouring of our basement floor.

Everyone from your receptionist, the on-site staff, and the construction manager to yourself proved to be extremely professional. Your team did what they said they would do by scheduling the dates we need to answering our questions on-site and bringing in other expertise when we looked at making additional changes.

When we set out to have our basement waterproofed we had concerns with doing the job on the interior. After speaking with CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation), they told me if we chose Ottawa Structural we would not be disappointed and we're not!"

"I am compelled to write to commend the work done by the tradesmen assigned to perform the work that was recently done at our residence.

Not only were we impressed with the craftsmanship exhibited by these tradesmen, but we were extremely pleased by their polite, friendly, and cooperative deportment.

Each evening they took great care to store their tools neatly, rinse the driveway, and ensure that there was a temporary walkway for access to the house.

Indeed it is rare to encounter employees of this caliber and they should be applauded.

Thank you for a job well done."

"I want to thank you and your company for the truly excellent work you did in correcting the foundation leaks in my house. The work was more complicated than originally expected, and I appreciate the fact that you persevered until there are no known problems left. I will be more than happy to recommend you (or act as reference)."
