Brown and Sons Celebrates 20th Anniversary

May 27 2017

Brown and Sons Construction was formed over 20 years ago from humble beginnings.
Arnie Brown got his start in the business learning from a former boss. When the boss retired, Arnie formed his own company with his wife Joanne and Brown and Sons Construction was born.

Experience says it all. Brown and Sons Construction has made more than 2500 repairs to residential and commercial foundations over the last 20  years. 20 years' experience has given BSC the opportunity to find solutions for a wide variety of issues, both common and complex. BSC has found that most foundation problems can be repaired, from a simple leak to pushing walls straight and reinforcing them with braces. Many foundations that BSC have repaired had voids so big you could slide a hammer through. Home owners are always pleasantly surprised at the reasonable cost of the repair.
Many people immediately assume that foundation repair costs will be prohibitive, but almost all foundation repairs are affordable and can be done in a timely manner.

Although some damage can bc repaired from the interior with epoxy or chemical injections, or in some cases epoxy gel, the most comprehensive and encompassing repairs are done from the exterior. Any leak or damage to the walls can be addressed by covering the entire exterior foundation wall with a flexible membrane which is designed to allow movement during our extreme weather. Brown and Sons Construction have been using the same membrane for over 20 years because of its proven performance on foundations in Manitoba's extreme environment. To enhance drainage, BSC backfills the excavation with approximately 4 feet of round riverwash rock, not a crushed rock or limestone. Although priced cheaper, limestone can compromise or damage the membrane from movement experienced over time. Proper backfill also allows for much less expensive backfill protection to be installed over the membrane. New PVC weeping tiles are installed and a filtercloth between the backfill stone and a soil cap on top. BSC offers a warranty that we stand behind. On job completion once completed payment is received in full, a warranty certificate is issued.
Brown and Sons has waterproofed penthouses on high rises, worked 3300 feet below ground in mines, and have done work on many parkades and bridges in Winnipeg and surrounding areas. Our commercial division also completed services on the Winnipeg Richardson international Airport, hospitals, warehouses etc. both in the private and public sector.

Brown and Sons Construction wlll look at any job big or small, regardless of complexity.

In 2013, Brown and Sons developed several lots on Main and Young to build Selkirk Soil. Selkirk Soil was created to serve the community by offering products to assist with general and custom landscaping. It was also created to supply the company's growing landscape division which allows them to offer complete service from start to finish. Regrading yards, refreshing and building driveways and of course offering drainage solutions are a specialty of this division. Branching off into complete custom landscaping was a natural shift.
From the ground up whether you need regrading, sod or maybe a beautiful water feature in your yard, they can make it happen. Patios, sidewalks, retaining walls, rock gardens or ponds and fountains. The landscaping team has over 30 years' experience making landscaping dreams a reality.
If you can dream it, they can build it. 

New to the company this year is Selkirk Soil Bin Service. Alter seeing a need in the marketplace for demolition garbage bins, Selkirk Soil decided to buy their own truck and bins to support their own company and provide local rentals to Selkirk. If you are looking for a large bin for demolition garbage you don't need to call Winnipeg any longer. They have bins for any purpose from rubbish to rubble.
The company prides itself on being locally owned and operated. Most of the materials used in construction are sourced locally and they prefer to hire local staff. Brown and Sons and Selkirk Soil also prides themselves on giving back to the community including assisting seniors and disabled individuals in town. Whether you are located in Selkirk, Winnipeg or any surrounding areas they offer free estimates and have your problem assessed
