While it’s often esthetic elements such as siding, roofing, landscaping and decks that get noticed the most, none of that means a thing without a solid and waterproof foundation.
 

 

Perimeter Drain & Foundation Inspections

At Flintstones, our specialized drainage crews devote their every day to doing high-quality drainage installations. All of our drainage installers are hand-picked by our professional production team and assigned to a project which best utilizes their talents.

 

Building Envelopes & Exterior Waterproofing

Over time, roofs, windows, gutters, siding, stucco, brick or concrete begin to wear and your home will become more susceptible to leaks, thermal loss and water damage. Left untreated, this can result in mold and other moisture-related issues such as rot and structural damage. Moisture is a major concern for the integrity of every home and a proper building envelope system will allow your home to breathe by releasing any trapped moisture to exit the wall assembly or prevent it from ever getting in. Performing preventative maintenance and fixing problems quickly is the key to avoiding an expensive renovation in the future.

 

Foundation Restoration & Underpinning

The bulk of homes in need of foundation repair and or structural upgrades, are typically older homes in areas such as Oak Bay, Rockland, Fairfield and James Bay. Some of these older homes have foundations that are constructed of stone and mortar. They are then either formed or pointed with concrete or mortar on the inside walls which in some cases is almost 100 years old. We are able to deploy a variety of techniques to help repair or restore your foundation and provide structural upgrades no matter the original construction-concrete, stone or block.

 

Perimeter & Surface Drainage

Defective perimeter drains are the most common source of basement flooding and foundation deterioration in Victoria. Debris, plant roots or old and broken drain tiles can cause improper drainage. As a result, rainwater can pool up next to your foundation, causing major problems not limited to flooding. Water damage can cause a multitude of problems, including dangerous black mold on the inside of your home, which can cause health issues for you and your family.

 

Crawlspace Remediation

Outside of being an excellent place for hiding household items we no longer use but refuse to part with, crawlspaces are often forgotten and neglected. Crawlspaces serve as a large conduit for your home, running a majority of your plumbing, electrical, furnace and ducting from one end of the home to the next. Your crawlspace can also make a suitable home for rodents and other pests which is why it’s so imperative to have it inspected regularly. Leaking pipes, disconnected ducting, mold and rodent droppings can affect the air quality in your home, which can lead health issues for you and your family. Call Flintstones for an inspection today and to find out how we can make your crawl space a safe and functional part of your home.

“I am at a loss of words as to describe how truly amazing every member of the Flintstones team has been with our chimney repair. From our first emergency call with a leak into our basement and living room to cleaning our entire front yard as part of completing the job every step has been ideal. True craftsmen and conscientious members of our community feels like a huge understatement. Mike and every member of his crew are always upbeat, hard working and friendly. A strong focus on both job site safety and quality of work for the “boots on the ground” masons was both refreshing and admirable in a day and age where unfortunately these important considerations are glazed over in favour of profits by too many contractors.”

“Flintstones re-created a beautiful yard for my ocean front heritage home. Stone walls, stairs and pathways; drainage; lighting; wooden stairway and landing; and house repair and improvement. This company can do it all! They are courteous, clean and caring and finish the job to the customers’ complete satisfaction.”

Lanne

“We were faced with some unexpected issues just after moving into our new home. Lucky for us we made the smart decision to contact Flintstones. Their timely communication, sensitivity to our situation and well thought out plan made the decision to engage them an easy one. The team provided immediate comfort that only the work necessary would be done, that it would be completed to the highest standard and priced fair for the incredible value. We were constantly kept abreast of the project plan, brought into the decision-making process and were extremely pleased with the final product.”

“I couldn’t be happier with hiring Flintstones to finish out the basement in my 1912 Fairfield home. The finished space is absolutely stunning! Everyone was such a pleasure to work with and the entire process flowed smoothly and as promised. They truly are the best!!! I’m already looking forward to having them help me with my next project!”

Laura

“I must applaud the service we received from Flintstones. Their professional attitude and work ethic was exceptional. They had great design ideas and their attention to detail is second to none. They were careful to protect our property and gardens and they took the time to do a thorough cleanup afterwards. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Flintstones Masonry.”

Arch

“Words sufficiently fail me to adequately convey the quality, attention, and professionalism of all the employees of Flintstones Masonry and their hands-on owner Mike De Palma. We had a decrepit, small, poorly-utilized patio which has high exposure by the front door and wanted one that was low maintenance, semi-private and practical. Flintstones wisely convinced us to have a garden architect design the patio area for us. . . and it resulted in a great, collaborative outcome. Not only did the Flintstones help us with creating spectacular, first-rate concrete and stonework portions of the job, but they were involved in helping us obtain and coordinate the carpentry, electrical, irrigation, and gardening aspects as well. What a team! They get great grades!”
