Deep basement underpinning with heated floor and new walkout

Journeymen underpinned our basement (increasing the finished height to 8’ clear), poured a new slab, built a new entry stair and cut a new opening for a double entry door. It was a big job so I had the pleasure of getting to know both owners during the project. They were always present on site and also subcontracted the under-slab plumbing, hydronic heat piping and concrete floor polishing for me, so it was a one stop shop.

I am an Architect and am very particular with how I like things done. Donal Fisher’s patience and his clear, quick correspondence lasted right from our first meeting to the end of the job. He also kept me informed about what the plan was for each week and at what stages payments were due, and I felt 100% informed throughout the process. We encountered some extremely challenging soil conditions going down so deep and their crew was dedicated and relentless in their efforts. They were also willing to work with the structural engineer on a unique detail for the underpinning which kept the new part of the foundation wall flush with the old part so that we saved 4" of space on all sides. This required more complicated formwork (see photos) and extra time spent pouring the concrete into the forms. Tom Nugget’s masonry was very clean and precise and his concrete floor troweling was so good that we had the floor polished and sealed and are keeping it as exposed concrete. We were living upstairs while the work took place and Journeymen took extra steps to make sure we (and our neighbour) always had clean and convenient access to our doors. They power washed the driveway multiple time during the course of the work and installed a plastic barrier on the basement ceiling to help keep the dust and smells from coming up through the floor.

These guys know their stuff and were also spoken highly of by the structural engineer I was working with. I wouldn’t hesitate to call them back for any masonry or concrete work in the future and am confident that you would be satisfied with their work.

Great people!

I had a flood and Journeymen came and handled everything professionally! I am completely satisfied! Mr Vulpis is an honorable man.... I have heard horror stories about restoration companies so I am glad I chose Journeymen.

Chimney rebuild & repointing

It started out as a chimney repair but due to poor construction by Mattamy Homes, no bricks above the roofline could be salvaged. Donal and his team rebuilt the chimney and repaired several other cracks in the joints and bricks.

Kitchen Reno

Repairing brick work and opening up an 8 foot wide, 8 foot tall sliding opening working with a double brick wall in a century home. This Reno project isn't for the junior guys, you need to have skills and understand structural for it to go perfectly smooth. That is what Journeymen is all about. They discuss, they review, they plan, then they build. The site was always clean, runs smoothly and the finish product is no less than perfect. Thanks guys for another great job.

Outdoor Painting and Construction

We contracted Donal and his team to sand and stain our cedar shed as well as to put together a second pre-fabricated shed in our backyard. Donal came to our house to quote on the project, provided an accurate estimate and then proceeded to get the work done in just 2 days. Donal also helped find and purchase the best product possible to protect our shed from the weather. His team worked hard and efficiently in hot weather and they produced a top notch job all around. We would not hesitate to hire Donal again and recommend Journeymen Restoration
