What clients say about WestSide Drainage

Carlo is very knowledgable and CLEARLY knows what he is doing in this field.
Biba Love - White Rock
We moved into our home 3 years ago, and have had two floods in our basement in that time. After the first flood, we called a local, well known company to come out and diagnose what the problem was. We knew that water was backing up through our drain tile system, but didn’t know exactly what the door cause was. After several hours of poking around, we were told they couldn’t figure it out, and a full replacement of our drain tile was necessary. Quoted many thousands of dollars. Second opinion sought from another drainage company who had a different opinion as to what might help, but still weren’t able to diagnose the root cause. We chose to go with the second option, as it appeared more reasonable at the time. Fast forward one year, flood number two happens. Dumbfounded, we searched for yet another opinion and happen upon Carlo from Westside drainage. He was there the next day. It took him less than five minutes to figure out the problem, and less than ten minutes to expose the faulty connection from the sump to the city drainage line. Wow! His recommendation to change the outgoing drainage line to the city was reasonable in price…..and has worked to solve our problem. Carlo is very knowledgable and CLEARLY knows what he is doing in this field. Thank you Carlo!
After having several contractors look at the damage, he was the only one who spotted the broken pipe, and saved us thousands of dollars.
Terry - Coquitlam
We were told that water damage in the basement was due to the drain tile being crushed and that it needed to be replaced. I called Carlo to provide a second opinion, and not only did he advise that the drain tile didn’t need replacing, but he was able to locate a broken pipe which was the cause of the damage. After having several contractors look at the damage, he was the only one who spotted the broken pipe, and saved us thousands of dollars. I would highly recommend Carlo. He was very professional and knowledgeable.
We are very happy with the result and the honest opinions and the work that was completed.
Aaron - Vancouver
We had Carlo in to scope our very old (100 yr) clay drain tile. He came with his camera and was pleasantly surprised with how good shape they were in. He showed us what he was looking for and tested them out with his hose. We then wanted to add a sump, when he came back to look he found an old buried one that was in pretty good shape. He could have told us we needed a new one but was honest and reduced the quoted price to clean out and add a new manhole barrel. We are very happy with the result and the honest opinions and the work that was completed. Thank very much!
He was always quick in getting back to me, and got the job done fast.
Wayne Ryan - Re/Max Crest Westside - Vancouver

Recommended For Any Drainage Repair or Plumbing Jobs- We hired West Side Drainage Services Ltd. for the drainage tile repair, after dealing with a number of plumbing companies that did not only misdiagnose the whole drainage issues but also asked for a ridiculous amount of money. The drainage repair and maintenance was done in a timely matter. It was great to be able to say goodbyes to our wet basement. The team definitely strikes for professionalism, integrity and workmanship.
He quickly zeroed in on the exact problem, using the latest techniques he had everything cleaned out and flowing in three days
Miles Adam - Delta, BC
Owner Carlo is an exceptional man. Like a surgeon he solved our wet basement by using his amazing camera. He quickly zeroed in on the exact problem, using the latest techniques he had everything cleaned out and flowing in three days. I had quotes up to 20 times the amount he charged us. He is personable, knowledgeable, and honest to the nth degree. He kept me informed about every step of the repair to our 50 year old home drainage. He charged only 2/3 of his quote. I highly recommend him, If you have a drainage problem, be sure to call Westside Drainage Ltd.
Carlo from Westside Drainage was very knowledgeable and with his camera took me through the inspection and identified the blockages in the tile fairly quickly.
Martin N - Vancouver, BC
We were doing some work on our basement and found that we may have had a leak. Carlo from Westside Drainage was very knowledgeable and with his camera took me through the inspection and identified the blockages in the tile fairly quickly. We booked date to clean the tile a week later and then the job was done in two days. Carlo's team was so efficient they finished early and he gave us a break on the price. Overall very professional and a great company to work with.
Carlo was easy to reach, provided experienced advice on the work required, was prompt and well-organized, and charged under the original estimate based upon the actual work required.
Jacques - Vancouver, BC
Very thankful to Carlo and Jay for their excellent work in installing drain system in the back of our house and connecting it with existing drainage system in the front. Carlo was easy to reach, provided experienced advice on the work required, was prompt and well-organized, and charged under the original estimate based upon the actual work required.
Westside Drainage is professional, reliable, and efficient.
Pat - Vancouver, BC
Westside Drainage is professional, reliable, and efficient. We appreciated Carlo's great attitude and his thoroughness in diagnosing the problem. He and Jay dug up our old pipe, replaced it with the right kind, and left our yard in better shape than they found it. Great service, good price.
Carlo demonstrated the experience, knowledge, honesty and professionalism that we all look for when we hire a contractor.
John - White Rock, BC
Our sloping driveway turned into a small lake after a very heavy rain last spring, resulting in some water in our garage. So I wanted to get it taken care of before the return of the winter rains. When Carlo came (on a Sunday as he was very busy) and checked the drain tiles with his video camera he showed me how badly blocked they were. He explained what he'd do to determine the extent of the blockages and what he expected to find and provided a written quote to do the work. As Carlo exposed the areas he needed to see he kept me constantly updated with what he was finding and explained to me very concisely what had to be done. After cleaning the blocked areas and repairing a couple of connections he demonstrated to me that the drain tiles were working properly. He came up with an innovative solution to replacing the drain cover at the bottom of our driveway, and advised me on how to keep the drain tiles cleaner for the future. The work was done efficiently and the areas that were being worked on were left safely covered or taped off at the end of each day. Had some rain the other night and everything worked great, the water went where it was supposed to go - away from the house. Carlo demonstrated the experience, knowledge, honesty and professionalism that we all look for when we hire a contractor. He also passed on some great tips for growing tomatoes.
...We were concerned with mold and the health of the family in our home, he made extra time in his schedule to view our blocked drain tile...
Tina - Burnaby, BC
After explaining to Carlo at Westside Drainage that we were concerned with mold and the health of the family in our home, he made extra time in his schedule to view our blocked drain tile. He explained each step first with the video inspection and on his second visit, the repair. He answered all our questions and gave us peace of mind. We would certainly recommend his company to family and friends.
...Next time we have another downpour as heavy as the one that flooded us out, but I now have confidence thanks this company.
E. - Vancouver, BC
The surface drains at the end of our reverse-slope driveway were draining too slow. During the biggest summer storms this year, they would not drain fast enough, and water would rise and enter the back of the house. Carlo was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and experienced and did the repair to the drainage system as quoted. He told us what we could do ourselves for maintenance in the future. The true test will be the next time we have another downpour as heavy as the one that flooded us out, but I now have confidence thanks this company. It was a bit on the expensive side, but I do believe in paying the right price for knowledge and experience and this was one of those occasions. I also believe that Carlo tried to find the simplest and most cost effective solution to our problem and discouraged any unnecessary work.
He made sure that I understood the risk and potential of the current system.
Kurt - Burnaby, BC
Carlo inspected the drain tile of a house prior to my subject removal. He had proper equipment and was very informative about the good and bad of the current system the house has. He also gave me estimation on the cost needed to maintain the drain tile, even for jobs that cannot be done by his company. He made sure that I understood the risk and potential of the current system. He helped me making an informed decision, and I will not hesitate to have him working on the drain tile system coming possession time. And I will recommend him to anyone with drainage issue.
Can't say enough positives about him and the work and besides, he saved me a ton of money.
Winston Toudy - New Westminister, BC
We have lived in our home for 17 years without any problem with a wet basement. It had been saturated with water when we moved in but I dug up and repaired the drain along one side and the rear of the house myself. I assumed the other side and front had been repaired by the previous owner as the white clean out drains were in place. Well we noticed wet spots on that side this spring and fearing we were now in for a total dig up and replacement of drains we called Westside Drainage.Carlo was at our place promptly and scoped the system with me showing me all the problems which were along the side and front that I thought had been replaced; no they had not. He assured me he could repair three sections that were plugged, stated that existing tile did not need to be replaced and all other sections were clean. He then returned and dug at 3 spots and sure enough found plugged tiles. He was glad to have me watch the work proceed and include me in his observations. The worksite was kept neat and clean and he did not disturb plantings along the wall. Work done in 3 days and you would never notice that it had been disturbed. He also gave me good advice should we decide to put a bathroom in the basement. I would highly recommend this gentleman for any plumbing, drainage work. It was actually a wonderful experience as it was a pleasure dealing with an honest, forthright contractor. In my opinion he was the best I have ever dealt with. Can't say enough positives about him and the work and besides, he saved me a "ton" of money
