1890s Underpin in Leslieville

We had GJ Macrae underpin our 1890s house in Leslieville over the summer. The team showed up on time every day, the project moved so smoothly. I wish I had another basement for them to underpin.

Highly recommend GJ Macrae for any basement or underpinning work. The final result looks fantastic, we have a beautiful basement, with nice tall ceilings!

The whole team was a pleasure to work with! 5 stars!

Thank you Adam for sharing your experience here working with Gavin and his crew on your 1890's underpin in Leslieville, Toronto last summer 2020. It's so important for other homeowners' to know who to call to create a beautiful basement living space; done right the first time. Underpinning is Gavin's specialty!

Foundation Leak

Leak in my back basement. When called, they came, promptly estimated my work. Started as soon as location services completed. Worked steadily and hard (by hand!) until job completed. Cleaned up well including a remarkable quantity of stones that they had to remove hidden by the builder in the 70s. Very satidfied.

Foundation repair and parging

1. On the outside of my house, parging was completed, as well as fixes to the external foundation structure.
2. On the inside of the basement, all the walls were crumbling, and the team repaired and then parged.

Everything went well, and the project leader, Dean, was especially helpful with recommendations and co-ordination.

Foundation Repair

When water seeps into your basement it is easy to become alarmed.
Such was the case with our family home. One day we noticed a large wet spot along the foundation wall in the basement. We called three companies immediately. Only one called back, on a weekend and that was GJ MacRae. Within a couple of days they were on site with an estimate to repair, within 7 days it was repaired. Price was fair with payment on completion. The crew was courteous and efficient. The jobsite very clean and when completed my lawn/garden was restored immediately. These guys are real pros. Trust them, they are fantastic!

Waterproofing and weeping tile repair

We would highly recommend G. J. MacRae and the exceptional team led by Dean and Magnus. Very professional, efficient, timely, and refreshingly honest! We had a flood in our basement, after having had waterproofing done 10 years ago ny a different company. Dean identified that we had 2 cracks in the foundation that were in the area of the current waterproofing. We wanted advice and honesty on how to best correct the problems. Dean provided a quote and the team started 2 days later. Within 1 1/2 days 27' of waterproofing was completed in the most professional manner. We learned a lot from Dean and Magnus on what had been done incorrectly the first time. We highly recommend this company if you want peace of mind and exceptional trades work! Totally reliable, honest and knowledgable.

Foundation and Weeping Tile Repair

Our home was built in 1949. After heavy rains in October and November water started to leak into the basement. Mac Rae's staff identified the problem right away and once we approved the quote they came out the same week. Mac Rae's crew were polite and took care to minimize disruption when some work had to be done inside the house. Approximately 35 feet of foundation had to be exposed down to the weeping tile which was plugged full of sand. The work was completed in two days during the week of January 27, 2020 and came in as quoted. I highly recommend this company

Stand behind their work

GJ is a professional team and stand by they're work 100%. The initial repair wasn't 100% effective, they came back and made it right.

The work crews took care on my property like it was their own.

Basement parging, exterior waterproofing and sump pump installation

The whole process from contacting MacRae to completion went quickly and efficiently, thanks to Dean and the crews of Mehmed and Magnus. The men worked hard and the quality of their work was excellent, as was the tidy up. I would not hesitate to recommend G J MacRae.
