    Customer Testimonial

              To Whom It May Concern, Basement Systems Calgary completed a large remediation project for us in the fall of 2018 that comprised of the installation of 69 push piers around our entire house and attached garage. The project was completed within a reasonable timeframe considering adverse weather conditions were encountered during a portion of the job. Cyle and the installation crew were very polite and courteous throughout the job and worked very hard to complete the work on time and within a reasonable budget. Their experience and dedication to the job was evident throughout the process. We highly recommend Basement Systems Calgary for your foundation and basement needs. Sincerely, Rick & Claudia Kyllo
