It all started when Rick Robson threw a rock in to his neighbours window when he was 12 years old. Robson’s dad encouraged his son to pay off the costs to repair the window by working for his foundation repair company. Rick at the age of twelve got the opportunity to excavate his first foundation. Robson’s Grandfather was the original excavating contractor in Niagara Region.

At only 16 years old in 1973, Robson started working full time for his dad’s company pairing foundations in the Niagara region. It was nearly 42 years ago that Robson built his first foundation, and that foundation is still standing.

When Robson started he was one of the only three-foundation repair tradesman. Robson’s many years of experience in construction and the trades has provided him with the skills truly needed for a professional basement repair company.
