Here’s what some of our awesome customers have to say…
“I was looking to preemptively waterproof and patch the foundation on my first home after purchasing it and I asked around for recommendations. Kuypers came recommended by several people, including one person who worked with insurance claims. After getting quotes and doing some research of my own I went with Kuypers and I am very glad I did. They were immensely professional in their business and extremely efficient in their work. The crew worked through some pretty rough weather and I would not have blamed them for taking a day. Two years later, my basement is bone dry. I’ve been doing some renovation work in the basement and gotten a look underneath the subfloor. Even after several major rainstorms this summer there isn’t even a hint of moisture.”July, 2020
“After having water issues in our basement on more than one occasion, our friend suggested we should contact K. Kuypers Construction Ltd. My friends had them fix their foundation many years earlier and never had a problem since. We spoke to several of our neighbours who also had water issues and all hired Kuypers to fix their foundation. Everyone we spoke to highly recommended them.
From the day Kevin (the owner) came out to provide a quote, he was professional, down to earth, and straight forward. Shortly afterward, Kevin and his crew arrived and repaired our foundation, waterproofed it, installed weeping tile and a sump pump. As I was seeing all the clay and soil being dug up, I thought we would be spending the rest of the summer repairing our landscaping around the house. But that was not the case. They finished on time and on budget, and when they left you could barely tell they were there. Kevin was there every day working along side his crew; certainly a man of integrity.
We now join our friends and neighbours in highly recommending K. Kuypers Construction Ltd. to fix foundation issues. In fact, we have already recommended them to one of our neighbours as they were emptying out their basement after flooding and they hired them immediately. We now have peace of mind knowing when it rains that water will not leak into our basement and that feeling is priceless.
Many thanks to Kevin and his crew!”June, 2020
“Hi Kevin and Crew.
Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you did installing our weeping tile last week. The whole neighbourhood came out to watch and they were all impressed as were we. We still have folks stopping by to ask us about the work and the guys who did the installation.
When I recommend K. Kuypers Construction, this is what I tell people:
– The guys took great care of our lawn and our patio while excavating around the house. They laid down sheets of plywood over the grass, sidewalks, and patio for protection. When the job was done, the lawn, the patio, sidewalk, and the flower garden looked as good as new.
-These guys work hard. The crew arrived at 7:00 a.m. and worked hard until 5:00 p.m. They did this every day for three days straight. The digging was all done by hand and it was not easy work. We live in an old neighbourhood with nasty clay and even nastier tree roots. It was pretty impressive to watch these guys work.
-The crew was here for three days. At the end of each day, they cleaned up the work site and left everything neat, tidy, and organized.
-The guys did an excellent job back filling and packing earth back into place after the installation. Two days after the crew finished at our house, it rained day and night for three days straight. There was hardly any settling around the house telling me that they packed it all back in tightly. The sump pump worked great and the weeping tile system is working just like it is supposed to. We’re confident to renovate the basement now!
-The work site was organized and neat. The tools were all laid out every morning and the crew took good care of their equipment. When I see the guys taking good care of their equipment I recognize a sign of professionalism and attention to detail. That’s exactly what I look for when I hire folks to work on our home.
-Kevin followed up with us after the job was over to make sure everything was in order. It was of course and it was very nice to know that the company stood behind its work and took the time to call us afterwards. Again, I consider this to be very professional.
-Finally, the price we paid was exactly the price that Kevin quoted us. The job was completed on time and on budget.
You can tell the difference when you hire a family business. Quality and reputation is everything. The Kuypers family has been doing this work since 1954. You can tell.
If you’re reading this testimonial, it is probably because you’re shopping around for a contractor to install your weeping tile. Call K. Kuypers Construction. You can be confident that you’re hiring a professional outfit and you will be happy with the finished product.
Thanks again to Kevin and all the hard working men and women at K. Kuypers Construction Ltd.”June, 2020
“Hi Mr. Kuypers,
I would say thank you for repair my house foundation yesterday. You are the best construction company in my heart, because of your good work and good client care responsibility. Stay safe in quarantine.
“K Kuypers Construction Ltd. responded almost immediately to a leaky basement this spring caused by two foundation wall cracks. Kevin came to my home within 2 business days of my call to provide an estimate, and within another 3 business days the job was completed. His team of employees was very professional and the job of digging down to the weeping tile level and repairing the two cracks from the outside was completed in less than a day. When the project was completed my yard was as tidy as the day before they arrived. I would recommend K Kuypers Construction to anyone with a foundation problem. They are prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and dedicated to their projects.”May, 2020
“K. Kuypers Construction came to the rescue after having taken advice from several experts to no avail on a slow but steady trickle of water on one spot of my basement wall. I had opened the wall up near the wet area but no one had come to the right conclusion about what the problem was until K. Kuypers came.
They identified the most likely source of the problem and I agreed to retain their service as my next door neighbours had also very good results from work they did for them a few years ago.
The K. Kuypers Team came out at the pre-agreed upon day and time and dug a narrow, very deep trench all along the basement wall. they prepared my yard with great care with planking so material hauled out and brought in did not damage my front yard. The crew was cheerful and courteous and they worked very very hard.
The cause was located and confirmed immediately. The weeping tile was found completely crushed, probably since home construction in the seventies. Also fine horizontal cracks came off the entree hole for the electrical in the basement wall. With moisture and frost these cracks had developed further with a crumbling of the concrete wall around the electrical main entree. It probably got gradually worse over many years, as this water seepage was only noticed since a little over a year .
All clay and faulty weeping tile was removed by the Kuypers Team by the truckload. New weeping tile was installed with proper fill, the window wells were reinstalled and drainage re-created away from the home. The surface was tidied around the window wells which made the job an extra challenge.
The fence was put back together, the yard very nicely tidied and within two days all worries had evaporated: a great job and no issues ever since.
I still go down after the frost is out of the ground and after heavy rains to check with a moisture meter. The wall remains dry as a bone and the small opening in the insulation and finished wall on the inside of the basement has been reinsulated and put back together after keeping an eye on it to make sure.
The peace of mind and the pleasure of money very well spent will bring comfort and a sense of security well into the future.
Many thanks for a successful project K.Kuypers Construction.”May, 2020
“We called Kuypers Construction when my parents basement flooded in Sherwood Park. The owner of the company Kevin was great as was his entire team. They were responsive and professional and got the job done quickly and at a reasonable price. If you ever have issues with your perimeter drains, this is the company to call.”April, 2020
Enclosed is a cheque for the foundation work you did on our house. You and your team were AWESOME. We really appreciated the good job you did. THANKS SO MUCH!”
We have been negligent in not contacting you to Thank You for the great job that you completed last year. What can I say everything is dry and we are still amazed at how your people cleaned everything up. Please have any potential clients call us if they are looking for a referral.”
“Dear Kevin & Crew,
Thanks so much! Excellent job – we appreciated how quickly the job was done and the fact that when we returned home, the place looked great. Even my husband (who was the naysayer all along) was pleased. We would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone.”
I just wanted to thank you again for the super job and great customer service that I received last fall for the installation of weeping tile and a sump pump at my residence. I was truly impressed with your professionalism and how quickly you and your team were able to get such a HUGE job done in such a short amount of time — amazing! My basement is 100% dry and I hear my pump kicking in from time to time to get the melting snow away from my foundation! I am so relieved! Thank you very much, once again, for the superb service and value! I have already recommended you to my neighbours to the west of my house. (I believe they have contracted you for work later this spring). If there is anywhere else I can post this testimonial to help your business, please let me know as I would b e happy to do so.”
I am just writing to thank you for the job that you did on our basement last fall. If anything was going to be a test of a waterproofing job on a basement, this past winter was it. Who would have thought that you would need a sump pump in Edmonton in January, and February ?!?!?!
The last week or so this thing has been working overtime keeping us from floating away in all the snowmelt. My neighbours say thanks too, as I’m helping keep them dry too! Your crew was great, fast, efficient, cleaned up the site well, and our basement has been dry every since. We could actually notice a difference almost right away as the wet earth was not in contact with our basement any more. By far the best money that we’ve spent on our house since moving in! I have a couple of friends who have recently bought houses in established neighbourhoods, and have told them that if they have a wet basement, you’re the people in town to call to get it fixed. Thanks again, James and Erin
PS: I actually heard about you (Kuypers Construction) from a colleague who had the previous generation of you guys do his basement a number of years ago and has been dry every since.”April, 2011
