Wet Basement repair in Midtown

I agree with so many of the reviews on this site and now truly see why everyones been so happy with this company. They really did a perfect job from start to end. There is nothing I can say that I would have had them do differently. Brilliant!

Waterproofing

When reading the recommendations on websites its hard to know how much is truth and how much is fiction. City Wide has received great reviews, and we now know why. Not only do they do excellent work (they repaired two leaks that had been giving us problems for years) but their prices are fair and they are a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend City Wide.

Weeping Tile Replacement

I used the City Wide Group to resolve basement water issues that I had with a house that I purchased a year ago. The house is 60 years old and had an outdated weeping tile system. I was able to meet with Harry, who outlined all steps involved, and estimate for the time that they work would take and the cost. They were able to start 1 week later. After the first day that the work was started, I arrived home to witness a very clean, and minimally disrupted area where the work was being done, that included tarped areas. The work was completed within 2 and 1/2 days, and when done, I was impressed with the fact that I hardly could tell that a major excavation had been completed around my house. They even hosed down any dirt in the front area and driveway. There was minimal disruption to the neighbours property since the space inbetween the 2 houses did not leave a lot of room to work and they were able to preserve the neighbours trees. I was happy with the work that was done, the professionalism and hard work of all their workers, and the ease of the whole process. I would recommend this company to anyone that needs this type of work completed.

Waterproofing

I recently hired City Wide Group Inc. to do waterproofing in my basement.They were super fast and professional. They did extra work beyond the scope of our contract with no extra cost to me. Their service was superior and the work was beyond my expectation. Most importantly, this company has a "moral concience"; their employees stay with them for 30 years which tells me City Wide treat thier employees well. I recommended them to my friends. They are the best of the best. Cris (owner) please accept my sincerest thanks and gratitude for a job well done.

Underpinning the house for a habitable basement.

Best decision made. This is a huge undertaking. Underpinning is a type of job not to be given to anyone. Choose very carefully! City wide was prompt, gave a timely quote, started when promised, presented costs for additional work I requested during the job. There were no surprises in the end. The crew that worked with us treated our family and home with utmost respect, got the job done right and well beyond expectations. Issues come up during a job of this magnitude, City Wide are great problem solvers, they are all gentlemen and I would recommend them to you. City Wide is as professional as they come. They have the proper underpinning insurance and carry all the proper credentials. Pricing is a tad more but you get what you pay for. I also requested additional work outside of the contract along the way. Radiant floor heating, furnace installation and some needed plumbing. Well tackled. Our family thought moving was our only option for more space, we did not want to build an addition because we love our garden. MLS Listing fees and percentages coupled with the land transfer tax would add up to more than this job cost. It made sense to have this project completed. Well worth the investment! Thanks Chris and Harry and all the gents on the crew. If you think I am gushing... I am... I just know too many people with absolute horror stories of underpinning gone wrong. Good luck!
ps. great warranty too!

waterproofing basement

CityWide Group waterproofed my leaking foundation this past month. Chris gave me a fair quote and had one of the crews start work that same week. The crew was very polite, and most important to me they kept things very clean. We have had a few good rain storms since and the basement is bone dry! I will happily recommend this company experiencing a wet basement like mine. Thanks.

Underpinning and waterproofing

As a CEA ( CerTified Energy Auditor)and Home Inspector I had the possibility to see a work done by this company in the basement of a client.
I was very well impressed and I made the decision to hire them to make the underpinning of my basement.
The job just has been finished and honestly that has been amazing!!
Harry and Chris are very professional and the work team they have is very qualified to do these kind of jobs.
I will recommend City Wide to my clients in the future. I think they are the right people for these difficult jobs.

Underpinning Basement

Harry and Chris lined up everything very well for our basement underpinning. Helped us find good subs for other work, and were overall very easy to deal with.

The crew worked tirelessly and the job was completed on time.

Will recommend, and will use them in my own business when I can.

Thanks Guys

Waterproofing Foundation

CityWide undertook at a contract my residence. They waterproofed 3 sides of my home, which I am totally happy with. They completed this job to my total satisfaction within 5 working days. My property was left very clean and tidy considering the undertaking. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to have a job like this executed effectively and efficiently.

Basement lowering

I am a General Contractor myself, so am quite critical of others in the industry. Prior to engaging City Wide I interviewed 2 other small residential contractors. Both provided quotes that were completely unreasonable, and totally unegotiable. Then I met Harry. He knows his stuff, he is quick, efficient, client-satisfaction centric, and his crew is exceptionally respectful of the fact that they are working in a house that people are living in. The job was cleaned every day, and the site was very safe.
Through the process there were a couple of changes. Harry and I negotiated completely reasonable and amicable terms on the changes and the job was completed in record time. Start to finish - 9 days.
Harry is a contractor's contractor and I would recommend his company to anyone. Don't take the chance on the guy with no insurance and a promise of doing the work for 10K. You will be sorely disappointed.....not to mention, your house may fall down.
