New fence

I'll start by saying that Jay and Team were awesome, professional, and I would work with them again in a heartbeat (and recommend them to others)!

Jay visited our property multiple times to facilitate the quote process, and worked around our busy schedules.

He immediately set the tone as a knowledgeable, yet practical and reasonable contractor. It became very clear that he was an individual you could trust.

That trust factor was called upon and proven true during our job when the complications arose. Jay took care of us and rectified the issues immediately without any questions or hassle.

Kudos to Jay and Team for building our fence. While we don't want to put another one up for a long time, we look forward to working with their crew in the springtime for landscaping work.

Fence

I needed to put up my fence pretty quickly and Grant was able to fulfill my need. He had CJ build the fence for us. CJ's work is amazing. You can tell he's very experienced. My fence receives many compliments from my neighbours.

Replace yard fence

Green Side Up recently did a great job of tearing down our old fence and replacing it with a new one. Their pricing was fair and the guys who did the work were professional, did a great job on the construction of the new fence and cleaned up any debris after the work was done. We were pleased with their work and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!

Major Backyard Renovation

We engaged with Green Side Up for a major back yard renovation. I had previously worked with Jay on a smaller balcony project and loved the engagement. That positive experience plus the number of positive reviews on this site, along with some of the other projects we saw they had completed gave us the confidence to choose Green Side Up.

Our back yard renovation was no small task. Here's a list of what we had done with Green Side Up:
- Removal of existing wood retaining wall and replaced with armour stone
- Removal of existing interlock and replacement with new beautiful interlock (excavation and re-grading of the entire back yard)
- New fence and gates
- New custom deck around our hot tub
- New grill gazebo over top of our BBQ

The carpentry work by CJ was amazing - his attention to detail is unmatched

The overall experience was great - any final tweaks and adjustments were completed promptly. I would recommend Green Side Up on anyones back yard renovation

Thought I would include a link to a video that was done to show the finished product:

Deck Replacement

We had a fantastic experience and highly recommend this company. The job was done on time and budget and is simply gorgeous. They were very attentive to detail and made sure we were satisfied with the job. And, cleaned up the site when done. Thanks for a great job.

Fence

AVOID!!! This is unprofessional company! We were dealing with both Grant and Jay, they sounded like they know what they are doing but in reality they will bring unprofessional group off people to work in your property and will not only manage their work, but also won't come to avaluate it after.
My husband end up taking days off from work to manage them.
In the end of the project they end up fixing what they did, which delayed the project.

Hi Mari and Milla,

We replaced the four fence boards your husband didn't like. We picked up the gravel that got turned into the ground through the four consecutive days of rain we had....all before we even requested the final walk through. We also accommodated you with 5% discount which you quickly accepted.

I'm also very surprised that your husband didn't mention ONE word of your unhappiness when I met with him to pick up the final payment and conversed with him for just under five min. In fact it was the opposite when we were talking, he wanted to know if "it was too late for us to do your landscaping project this year?" which I said it was.

At the end of the day, although your husband's two concerns were quickly addressed, it's very disappointing that you feel this way.

But a zero out of ten and "AVOID"...really?? That's bizarre....

Please keep in mind you have a four year warranty on the fence posts and framework and if you ever have any issues please let me know.

Take care,

Jay Saveall

Very impressed. Quality work by real professionals.

First let me start off by saying this isn't my first rodeo...I've been buying and flipping houses for over a decade in the GTA. I have met my share of contractors good and bad and I can happily say I found a good one in Jay and Green Side Up Contracting. Jay and his team were prompt, polite and professional. They completed a very large stone driveway as well as an overhaul of my existing gardens. The work was completed flawlessly.

Continued service, well beyond expectations.

My wife and I had Jay and team completely re-do our backyard. Fences, Deck, and Stonework. The team was in and out quickly, on time and on budget. I can't express how much joy this has brought our family.

The really impressive part though, was the follow up. One season later, Jay called me up to see how I was liking the new backyard. I mentioned to him that I saw some discoloration in the stone. Jay immediately had a video of the stone sent to Permacon (the manufacture). The Permacon rep. came by and let us know that all the stone had a default and had to be completely replaced. Jay's team was tied up in other jobs, so Permacon had another highly reputable company come and replace all stone at no cost! The job was well done and on time. This is a testament to not only Jay for flagging it and getting an immediate response from Permacon, but also Permacon for providing an exceptional product that really stands by their promise to customers. Fantastic work and outstanding follow up. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
