We first contacted Bill Fairney after a major storm caused water to leak into our basement, and we just happened to see his sign on a nearby lawn. It turned out to be the right choice! Bill came by immediately, helped assess the damage (both inside and out) and recommended a solution (waterproofing the sides of our 100-year old house). The quote was very reasonable for the required work, and the work started fast and was completed efficiently and professionally. One of Bill's biggest strengths is communication -- we always knew exactly what was going on day-to-day, what the timeline was like to finish, and any risks or unexpected changes that were going to occur. We've had no recurrence of any kind of water in the basement since this work (over a year ago) and several neighbours enlisted Bill and his team for similar jobs which I believe have been equally as successful.
The second job Bill and his team did for us was a shower reno, after our upstairs shower was leaking into the main floor. Again, Bill and his colleague were able to quickly evaluate the issue (essentially shoddy work by whoever constructed the shower) and recommended a full re-install, which turned out to be the right choice given what they found when ripping out the shower. This project ran into a number of complications, but again Bill was extremely forthcoming in his timelines and issues, remained committed to the original cost estimate despite the complications, and got the job done.
I would strongly recommend Fairney and Sons to anyone looking for an honest, experienced, and professional contractor.
