Crawlspace foundation rebuild with new footings and sill plate replacement

Gavin and his team did a wonderful job rebuilding a foundational wall covering a 13-foot section of our 120-year-old home. Given the nature of the work and our house, we were expecting a surprise or two. However, GJ MacRae completed the project on budget and as planned within three days. The team worked so efficiently and professionally that we hardly knew they were hereand both my wife and I work from home. They also posted daily updates on social mediaproof, to me at least, that they were proud of the work they did. As a new homeowner, I wish I could have received more frequent updates from Gavin while the work was ongoing. However, everything went so smoothly that it hardly felt necessary at the time!

Club house - Bagshop Foundation waterproofing

The foundation repair GJ Macrae did in our facility was a job well done. The first quote was added because of the extra works they have to do. I was pleased with the result and the waterproofing system they installed is the right one that is required for the condition of the wall.
I am really pleased with how the works is done. The crew was really polite and accomodating with the flow of activities we have during the excavation.
Great job overall.

Underpinning, structural enhancement, dig-out, waterproof, and pour new floor

From initial-meet hand shake to finished-project hand shake, Gavin was truly the most pleasant person you could hope to work with. Very quick to earn our trust with our home and investment, Gavin was a great listener, gave great advice tailored to our needs, showed up to start on plan and finished our challenging project essential on plan (we had some challenges arise which he and the team accommodated which also included some unplanned weekend appearances to pick up some lost time!). We had no major surprises from Gavin on start, process, plan, finish, or costs which greatly helped keep our anxiety levels down. We would happily recommend Gavin and he would be our first call if ever doing this type of work again. Thanks Gavin and team!

Underpinning, Parging and Sump Pit Replacement

My wife and I cannot speak more highly of Dean and the crew. We inherited a bunch of problems when buying a home and each has now been successfully remediated by GJ MacRae. Every member of the team has been respectful, on-time and throughly professional in completing the respective scopes of work, including keeping the worksite tidy and cleaning up at the end of each project. They have our thanks and we highly recommend them.

Foundation repair and waterproofing

Gavin and the team at GJ MacRae did a great job on the foundation repair and waterproofing of our 19th Century home. They were recommended by our General Contractor.

Gavin was happy to answer all my questions about the work being done and regarding maintenance going forward. The team worked hard, were polite, and finished before we knew it. I even got a follow up email after the work was done to see if all was well and if any further help was needed. Highly recommended!

Basement Leak - Needed it to be dry!

The horror of wet carpet in the basement along the foundation wall that you know wasn't the result of a dropped glass of water. It is unfortunately what many of us with block foundations in older homes have experience with. Gavin and his crew were professional in their area of expertise from the first call through to the end of the job. Core work included gaining access to the foundation wall to allow for waterproofing and upgrading the weeping tile system. The work was completed safely, on schedule, thoroughly as per the scope and cleaned up fully. All questions were answered with recommendations and zero pressure. I'd definitely recommend to consider GJ MacRae Foundation Repair to correct foundation wall leaks and improve the performance of your home.

Amazing company to work with. From the initial contact to the completion of the job, Gavin and his crew were fantastic. Very detailed and accurate quote outlined the job, providing a clear understanding of the job at hand.
Not only did they do a fantastic job, but they were ok and out within days but ensured the job site was as clean as possible.
These guys will be my go to if I ever need additional work done.

Waterproofing

We've been using Gavin and Noreen for years and the MacRae's work has always been amazing. Gavin knows his stuff and is more than happy to give you different ideas or recommendations to help resolve the problem. He is always personable, respectful and professional. The team was very flexible with their schedule given the challenges we had co-ordinating permits. They did a fantastic job, as usual. I recommend Gavin to anyone who has foundation issues - you won't regret the choice.
