joel-225x300Foundation Works is locally owned and operated by Joel Goyette. Joel has spent the last 20 years waterproofing homes in the Ottawa and surrounding areas by performing everything from foundation repairs and foundation waterproofing to roofing with his very successful roofing company “Worry Free Roofing Inc.” which he participated strongly in building from scratch, teaching everything he knew about roofing and the roofing business to his business partner and uncle Denis Bérubé who brought in to the company his business operation skills, management and marketing experience. Together they made an exceptional team to the last day of their partnership of this company.

Joel chose to sell his shares of “Worry Free Roofing Inc.” to his partner (2003-2013) in order to build his own independent business “Foundation Works” within his extensive background of foundation repair, foundation waterproofing so that one day his children could take over a well-established family business built with an unsurpassed reputation.

Joel takes pride in building his company reputation one job at a time. He prefers to keep his business on a smaller scale with goals of maintaining 100% customer satisfaction. One of his policies is take your time and do it right.

Joel certainly knows what level of work ethics is needed in order to attain total customer satisfaction. In fact, the roofing company replaced on average 600 residential roofs annually. As of March 31st, 2013, when Joel sold his shares, Worry Free Roofing had A+ rating complaint free status with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) as He will never leave a customer unsatisfied.

Joel is a hardworking, country-based, family man with great values that will be noticed through his communication, work ethics, and pride in his work. From a young age Joel was operating all types of farming and commercial machinery with his brother by his side. Together they performed foundation repairs and waterproofing, as well as roofing. Still to this date, his brother Bob Goyette, works by his side and is the main equipment operator for foundation repairs and waterproofing, excavations, and backfill. Between the two brothers as owner and work site team leader you can be rest assured that any project taken on will be done right and to total customer satisfaction. These good old-fashioned country men with good values and morals will never cut corners on a job for any reason. They take pride in noticing everything and constantly going above and beyond the scope of the contract. “If you see something that needs to be done and you’re right there, then do it whether it’s on the contract or not” is what is preached to the teams.
