Home Leak Detection Ottawa
Leak Detection in Ottawa and Surrounding Areas
Many homes, especially older ones, have structural problems that allow water to find its way into your home. Whether you found just a wet spot, a puddle, or you're already up to your ankles in water, it's time to call City Residential Foundation Repair for leak detection services in Ottawa, Kanata, Orleans, Bells Corners, Manotick, ON and Surrounding Areas. We've been keeping local homes safe and dry for many years, and will respond to your inquiry the same day if you’re dealing with an urgent leak detection problem.
Some of the main causes of foundation leaks include weak downspouts, poor grading, flooded window wells, and sump pump failure. Each of these leak causes needs a different method of repair. For effective basement leak detection and repair, it is essential that the problem is diagnosed thoroughly and corrected with professional techniques and equipment. If the real cause of your leak isn’t identified, you might end up spending money on measures that don’t help you solve the actual leak cause.
Why preventative leak detection matters
Not all slab and foundation leaks will be obvious or even visible to you. If you have a leak in your home’s foundation, you may not notice the extensive damage being caused for a while without a set of expert eyes on it. If that’s the case in your home you might notice other signs though, for example:
- Higher than usual water bill over a period of time
- Your water heater turning on frequently
- Sound of water running through your pipes when no faucets are active
Since it is often a challenge to diagnose the root cause of a leak that’s not even visible you want to get a pair of expert eyes on that and ensure the necessary leak detection and foundation waterproofing is carried out immediately.
You may not think that leaks are a big problem for a homeowner, but those who have suffered from water damage know better. When moisture collects under your floorboards, behind your wall, or anywhere in your home, water does more than just damage wood and carpeting. Damp conditions lead to mold growth that can create serious health issues for you and your family. If you suspect your home has a leak, you should call in our expert contractors today. They're fully licensed and insured, so you can trust them to fix the problem and treat your home with care and respect.
There's no reason to leave household leaks untreated. Not when you have a team of experienced professionals like City Residential Foundation Repair in Ottawa, Kanata, Orleans, Bells Corners, Manotick, ON and Surrounding Areas. Leak detection services are one of our specialties, and we'd love to save you from potentially expensive damage with some simple, affordable repairs. Call us today before the problem gets worse!

A JOB WELL DONE BY 'CITY FOUNDATION'
I would have no hesitation in recommending City Foundation. They fixed up my foundation last summer and although the old house produced a few surprises, the professionals at City Foundation got around the problems cheerfully and completed the work. From the start, Chuck kept me informed of all of my options. If I asked for something not already in the plan, he would try to accommodate me if at all possible Chuck and his colleague Don were friendly, and respectful. They showed up every day, put in a solid day's work and always left the property clean, neat and safe for us to move around. And, the price was fair with no surprises. Great guys, good job!
Excellent service, friendly
We had Chuck and his team repair a crack in our cold storage room - they were punctual, neat, and friendly. The job was completed very quickly with great results. Would definitely hire them again and recommend them to friends.
Chuck did a very good job. He promised to be finished by a certain date and he was good to his word. He kept me informed of his progress through pictures sent to my email account while I was at work. My backyard is nicely landscaped and there was no damage or debris left in my yard - just a new window well and no basement leaks.
Can't say enough about the workmanship of Chuck and his crew. They assessed the problem(leak in the foundation) quoted me a price, booked appointment, showed up on time and did a very professional job.The work site was cleaned up to the point it was hard to tell there had been any serious digging at the site. If I have similar problems with my foundation they will be the first people I will call!! I would not hesitate to recommend Chuck and his crew if you have foundation problems that need repair.

Professsional and Polite
My experience with City Residential was very positive. I had a crack on my foundation and knew we needed it fixed. They came in and addressed the situation and did the work cleanly and professionaly. Our property was kept nice and tidy during the repairs and they worked safely during the work. Its been a few years now since the work and no issues whatsoever. I will be using them again once we decided to fix a few areas around the garage that they pointed out would need fixing someday. Very happy and positive experience.
Foundation Crack (back) and Drainage (front)
The foundation crack at the back was difficult to get to and difficult to dig out. The work was done well and on time. the drainage trench at the front was also done very well and on time. I hope I don't need Chuck again but if I have foundation, drainage issues, he will be my 1st call. bc
This is a highly professional company with reliable, honest service. Chuck, the owner, came exactly when promised, took the time to listen to my concerns, explained the problem in an easy to understand language, described in great detail how it could be fixed, and what was - and what was not - necessary. Chuck and his team's attitude and service were at all times very honest, courteous and highly professional. Although I needed to be out of town, there were no surprises or additional costs, and everything was left tidy and clean. Chuck even followed up a couple of days later to check if everything was all right and done to my satisfaction. All in all, I was very impressed with the quality of work and the services received and would highly recommend the company.
City Residential Foundation Repair
Chuck Naish and his team from City Residential Foundation Repair were excellent to deal with in every aspect. Their level of integrity throughout the entire process was outstanding. They were honest, respectful and their ability to explain the process and the solution options were extremely helpful to us. The scope of the project was big, however Chuck walked us through every step of the way; assessment, testing, options and repairs which resulted in a very successful outcome. In addition, Chuck and his team were able to complete the necessary repairs with minimal impact to our newly completed landscaping which included a lot of hard scape, tiered armour stone, gardens and a pool. They kept the work site impeccable over the duration of the project. We have and will continue to highly recommend Chuck Naish for his very professional and skilled foundation repair work.
My experience with City Residential was great. Chuck was very friendly and very easy to deal with. I especially appreciated that he was able to come by and do the estimate in the evening when I was off work. They did the work exactly as they said they would, no surprises (which in my mind is the most you can ask for). I was really surprised by how clean they left everything in the evenings and when the job was complete. They will definitley be the first people I call if I ever need more foundation work.
Weeping Tile system replaced
We are very please with the work that was done. It was always a pleasure to speak with the owner and explain to him what was going on. Although we found the job to be pricey, it is impossible for us to determine if it was adequate or not at it's hard to compare to others. He ran into several problems at my house while doing the job and he took it upon himself to call the City at two different occasion so they could do some testing before he could go on. Safety was very important for them so they took all the necessary precaution so that no one could get hurt or fall into the hole that were done all around the house.
