Foundation Repair

I wanted to let other people know about the great work your company does. Unfortunately we had problems with the integrity of the foundation of our house. Gavin came over, reviewed the problem, recommended a structural engineer, and the process got started. I cant say enough about Gavin and his crew. They were fantastic. After demoing the basement and breaking up the floor Gavin realized that the structural issues were much worse. The scope of the work changed. Gavin kept us informed and up to date on all of the issues. Once the work was completed Gavin ensured that everything was cleaned up inside and out. The issues with the house were not something we ever expected. Having said that, the experience with Gavin and his crew was nothing but positive. I would highly recommend G J MacRae Foundation Repair to anyone that requires this type of work to be done. They deliver what they promise. Thank you!!

Good Afternoon Gene:
Thank you so much for sharing your experience with others here on Homestars. Yes, structural issues are a special type of foundation repair and not always detectable by the naked eye. Once excavation or demolition takes place, Gavin knows very well what to look for and what to do. Gavin also realizes homeowners can become quite unsettled, because yes, structural repair requires a certain skill set, knowledge and experience! Gavin does this type of work on a regular basis and is always aware of just how important his attention to detail is. These jobs are very precise and often take weeks to complete. Thank you for taking the time.

Parging repair

Dean, was very friendly and knowledgeable and didn’t try to sell me anything I didn’t need. Milan was very meticulous and did a fantastic job and cleaned up everything afterwards.

I would definitely recommend them to anyone who foundation or basement repairs.

Foundation Crack Repairs

Any concerns I had about having a foundation crack repair done were alleviated by the focussed customer service and hard working crew on the job. Dean provnded good information, including instructive videos, prior to contract signing, liaised with the landscaper and returned to review the site after completion.

Digging in heavy clay soil can't be easy, but the crew met the challenge efficiently and expeditiously, completing the job in two days on the Easter weekend. The crew started early morning both days, giving me the option of start time on Sunday morning, which was a surprise. The site was left clean and tidy. Even the downspouts were reconnected.

It's a relief to have the job completed in a caring and respectful manner.

Highly recommended

The project had unforeseeable issues but they kept their price the same. In fact they were so honest that they deducted money because they didn't end up having to do work that was in the original quote.

Their crew came back at 11 pm and stayed until after 1am to fix an issue. I don't know of any contractors who would have been that responsive.

They also were the only company that would put back our patio stones, which they did like artists. Milan and his crew did a great job of putting things back.

I apologize for the delay in responding to your review. Thank you for sharing your experience with G J MacRae here on Homestars. You are helping others who need foundation repair work, on their basement, narrow their search so they can make an informed choice when hiring a foundation repair / waterproofing company.

The heavy rain in April / May 2017 called for preventative measures to ensure no water got into a job already in progress; namely your property. Dean knows that and is very particular and aware. Flooding conditions can be tricky and preventative action is always the best way to proceed.

Thank you

Foundation Parging

Thanks to Dean, Memet and Jose for doing a solid, professional job in every way, from customer service, quote, parging and clean-up.

The foundation (from 1924) had a couple of deep gouges in it (5 inches deep and about 4 feet X 5 feet (vertical/horizontal), likely from a neighbour's leaky downspout. The surface was loose along the whole side so they scraped down till they found solid and then built it back up with layers.

Cosmetically it looks very good while it adds strength and leak-prevention to the wall.

I have NO problem recommending this company. You can't take chances with a foundation.

Foundation Leak

Moved into my house to find a small flood in the basement every time it rained. I called GJ MacRae and was greeted warmly by Noreen. Dean came out the next day to conduct an . Normally I get a few quotes before deciding on who is best for the job, but Dean instilled an immediate sense of trust. No pushy sales or scare tactics. The work was done in less time than estimated and the crew even fixed up some other parts of my concrete floor that needed adjusting - a couple of holes and a large hump in the ground that they jackhammered out and smoothed with new concrete. Thanks to everyone, I now have a dry basement! Highly recommended - efficient, thorough, professional.

Shy's Place Restaurant, Dundas

Hardest working trade onsite. Thorough work. Discussed everything in detail in real time. Offered great professional advice.
Water proofing an 1896 stone foundation is no easy feat, although they made it look easy. Great guys, great crew extremely happy with outcome. Having them back to do more as there is no one else I trust with our foundation.
Highly recommend.

Foundation repair, underpinning, waterproofing and new weeping tiles

Work started with an assessment from Dean - very knowledgeable and took the time to explain what was required and answer any questions. Work began within a week, as scheduled. Can't say enough about Magnus and his crew. They exceeded our expectations:) They were polite, respectful of your property, and left the worksite clean, orderly and safe at the end of each day. These guys are focused and know what they are doing! Couldn't believe how much work they were able to accomplish every day!! During the process, they discovered they did not actually need to do as much work as originally thought - as a result the final bill came in less than originally quoted. We would absolutely recommend Dean, Magnus and his crew. You will not find a better team for this type of job!!
