Hired to gutt and renovate whole house

Hire to do full gutting, interior renovation and underpin basement in summer/fall 2004. The undermined the foundation of my house by cleaving off the brick footings and caused other structural damage. I had to hire structural and geotechnical engineers to confirm the many structural defects due to the extremely poor workmanship Group 5 provided. Group 5 came highly recommended but when they worked with me they convinced me that didn't need a building permit. I was lucky that the City of Toronto building inspectors were sympathetic to my situation and did not fine me for not having a permit. Had to fire Group 5 as they would not take any responsibility for problems they caused. I wanted to resolve our disputes via mediation but they refused to take responsibility for the defective work. Lost thousands of dollars and peace of mind over this renovation.

Hired to gutt and renovate whole house

Hire to do full gutting interior renovation and lower basement in summer/fall 2004. They underpinned the foundation of my house. Once I had engineers come in they pointed out many structural defects with the workmanship this company provided. They came highly recommended but when they worked with me they convinced me that didn't need a permit city inspectors were sympathetic to me and they concurred with the engineers. I wanted to resolve our disputes via mediation but he refused to take responsibility for his defective work. Lost thousands of dollars and peace of mind over this renovation.
