We hired G.J. MacRae for several reasons. 1) They were a family run company that was local and well established. 2) They had been featured on Mike Holmes TV show. 3) Their proposal for the repair was very reasonable.
We wanted the repair done properly from the outside of the house, and I had heard of many problems people had experienced using crack injection type repair companies. MacRae came by for an inspection and was very knowledgeable and gave me some good advice about other issues we had around the house related to the foundation. The weather kept the repair from starting on the scheduled days, but each time I was called early in the morning to let me know that work was not going to proceed that day. When the day came the workers were very courteous and worked all day to dig out the foundation, apply the repair and back fill and tamp the earth. After the cleanup was done, you would hardly know they had been there. We were very satisfied with the workmanship and overall we felt we were dealing with a very professional company. I would recommend them to anyone in my family to deal with.

We love working with people who do their homework before calling us and John you certainly did that! An informed consumer contributes to a positive outcome. Other factors affect your foundation like grading, eaves trough and down spouts. Keep your eaves trough running clear all year and make sure your down spouts are extended away from your foundation! You don't want that roof water spilling against your foundation wall creating havoc! Thank you John for taking the time to share your experience with others; you are educating and directing them to the right foundation repair contractor; G J MacRae. WE DO IT RIGHT!
