Ben saved our basement! Ben responded quickly to our request to set up an appointment to provide a quote to fix water that had entered the basement. Ben understood the construction of the house, quickly identified the issue that others had missed, and provided a solution tailored to the problem. Unlike other companies, Ben provided a quote and his availability on the spot.
When the state of the water in the basement became significantly worse one evening due to an extreme storm, Ben made an emergency visit that provided an effective solution that allowed us to sleep that night rather than being up constantly clearing water. When we lost power, we were offered a generator to keep our sump running at no additional cost.
The work was completed on time, as quoted, and to a high standard. I can't say enough good things about Ben and Mini X.
I m happy that I could help out.
Ben and his co worker did a great job fixing foundation cracks and installing window wells. Highly recommend Ben... A straight shooter, no nonsense, and a pure professional. Reasonable quote compared to others, work was done in days with few delays (due to weather). Look no further than Ben to get outer wall issues done right.
If you have recurrent issues with water seeping through your foundation walls, I highly recommend Mini X Foundation Waterproofing. I spoke directly with Ben Tuck as the contractor and owner of “Mini X” and outlined my problem with water leakage in my basement. He came out promptly the next day and inspected the foundation wall cracks and gave me an estimate on the spot. Ben provided a much more competitive quote in comparison to other contractors I had previously consulted. He agreed to come back within a week’s time and repaired 2 significant cracks within a day or so with his co-worker. Throughout the process, he explained the necessary waterproofing steps in detail, and later provided me with several photographs of the procedure. It has rained on several occasions since the task was completed and the repair work has held up without any indication of further leakage. Mini X also provides a 10 year Transferable Warranty for the repair work. Ben and his partner have provided professional workmanship with numerous years of experience serving the greater Ottawa Valley. As a result, I would have no hesitation in recommending their dependable services for all your foundation waterproofing needs.

Ben did excellent work repairing several cracks in our foundation today. He responded quickly to our initial request for a quote. His explanations were clear and his quote was very reasonable. Within two weeks of receiving his quote, we were given a date for the work.
Ben is very personable and professional. We are very pleased with his work and highly recommend his services.
I m glad I could help you.
After contacting multiple companies, Ben provided me with not only the most rational explanation of the work to be done, but also the lowest price. I like the fact that he provided the estimate and that he did the work. There was no gap between salesmanship and operations. Everything he did was professional and personal and with his longtime employee they worked diligently to do the job, both ahead of schedule and on budget. No extra charges, even though they hit a few snags. I would wholeheartedly recommend Ben and Mini-X for his knowledge, decency, timeliness, quality of workmanship, and price.
The job Did have a few fun spots but i was glad to help.
I am very happy with the work Ben did last spring. I’ve told many people about it since the repair and today in the midst of a freezing rain storm a friend called and asked me for his contact info. I got his name from a neighbour.
Your welcome, I m glad I could help.
We waited over a year to submit our review to see if we had further water problems but so far so good! Took a little time for them to fit us in, but Minix charged thousands less than what others quoted. Wish all contractors were as good! We highly recommend them if you have a basement water problem and you want the best job for the best price.
Had the pleasure of meeting Ben for an estimate on my basement foundation crack repair. Ben was approachable, knowledgeable, punctual and a true professional. He took the time to assess the job for the crack repair and provided me with quotes/options to repair it and what he would do to fix it appropriately. He explained in great detail all work to be done and took the time to answer every question I had. He provided me with pictures of his work from start to finish (as everything was below grade) or allowed me to at various steps despite interruption. He also assessed all of the basement unfinished area to be sure there was anything I may have missed.
Competitive pricing and was on time every day and finished the project as described in contract. Would highly recommend Ben and his co-worker for any foundation needs.
Ben Tuck was the first person that I spoke with who made any sense about the leaking basement problems that I had in my house. I moved here in September 2013 and within a couple of weeks, there was a minor flood in the basement. I contacted three companies for information about what could be done. The first one was incredibly expensive (options ranged from $7,000 to $17,000) without any guarantee that the problem would be solved. The second company provided several solutions which all appeared very confusing and costly. When I finally contacted Ben Tuck of Mini-X, I received a clear and concise description of the problem and how it could be fixed at a very reasonable price. Most importantly, the company's work is guaranteed for 20 years and the guarantee is transferrable. Ben and his co-worker removed the existing window wells (4) of my basement windows, dug down to the bottom of the foundation, installed weeping tile and another barrier on one wall that had a large crack. This was followed by filling in the holes with dirt and gravel, re-installing the window wells and fastening them to the wall properly. Since that time, there has been a major thaw and there has been absolutely no water entering my basement. I cannot thank Ben and his co-worker enough for the excellent work they did, at a very reasonable price. I will definitely hire Mini-X again for any other work of this nature and highly recommend this firm.
I've never had the pleasure to work with a contractor like this - thoughtful, courteous, willing to take time to explain details, punctual, very knowledgeable. He made me feel like he actually was trying hard to make the customer happy.
He sealed our basement all around the house, after we had some problems with water coming in. After 3 years, we've had no further water problems, and I fully expect his 20 year warranty to be unnecessary.
Every time I have an issue around the house that need a specialist, I dread making that phone call that will bring another clown to my doorstep to talk down to me, and leave me feeling ripped off when I get the bill. You'll get none of that with Mr. Tuck. He gave us the best quote (by far!!!!) and did a superb job from start to finish.
Did I say "Top Notch" ??? I sincerely wish the best for Mr Tuck and MiniX!!!
