Underpinning

This company was lovely to work with. The team lead, Jakub, was kindhearted and always used manners and etiquette. His style of interaction translated to his entire team as well. Which was so refreshing! They even showed "class" when dealing with a confrontational grumpy neighbor directly next door to us.

The work included: consulting, designing, structural engineering, plumbing, electrical, city permits, drawings, materials, lots of digging, lots of dumpsters, porta potty and always cleaning up after mess. It was timed well and as expected between 6-8 weeks work from Feb 12 point of basement drill to April 12. Expect 4 weeks of paper work prep before the first dig. All in all, good timing. Our family resided in the home the whole time with no complaints. Now, if you work from home, you may want to set up office on second floor and if you don't have this access, go to your local Toronto Public Library for the work day! We are a busy working family so weekdays was absolutely fine for the guys to work away. They had the freedom to work, blast music and have the job done!

Yes, I would reccommend this company for your next underpinning job.

Basement Underpinning

I recently had Inside Guys Underpinning dig and underpin my entire basement. From the moment they began to the finish the service and quality was without question the best I have ever seen! Not only was it on time and on budget, the work site was always tidy and at the end of each day the interior and exterior was swept and the sidewalks hosed down. Every neighbour commented on how clean and professional Inside Guys Underpinning managed the work site. All of Jakubs staff from Architects, plumbers, HVAC are exceptional!! I was able to remain in my home throughout the entire process which was critical for me.
I will forever recommend and insist on all of my clients use this company. Thank you Jakub for all of your hard work!!!

Basement Floor Slab Lowering and Structural Bench at Foundation Wall

Inside Guys was extremely professional throughout the process of our basement lowering. We wanted to do parts of the project ourselves to save costs which they were very supportive and helpful of, explaining how the process worked, reviewing work completed, and discussing next steps. They provided contacts for subs when needed, and completed their own scope expertly (the most important portion of the project - precise measurements, concrete forming, doweling, granular base and pouring). His crew was very polite, efficient, and clean. The front area of our house between the house and the sidewalk was left cleaner than before they started. Overall they were very hard working and pleasant to work with.

New basement slab in east york

We had a great experience working with Jakub and the inside guys. Our basement floor was very uneven and thin. They removed the old floor, installed a sump pump, weeping tile, gravel, vapor barrier, and poured a new concrete slab.

I really appreciated Jakubs confidence and knowledge with this project, how on schedule everything went, and how clean he kept the workspace and surrounding areas (my neighbors appreciated that as well!).

I would definitely recommend inside guys to others.

New Floor in the Basement

The job required a removal of an existing, floor and replacing with a new concrete slab floor. Inside guys were reconnected to me by a GC and they were excellent. The floor was complete on time and is perfect. So much so that other trades who have been through the house have commented on how good it looks. We have referred the team to our neighbours for work on their own house. Excellent company, great communication and very professional.

These Guys Set A New Bar for Customer Service

We got 3 quotes and they were the lowest yet demonstrated that they understood the assignment (with no attempt to up-sell). They did an excellent job protecting surfaces and putting everything back exactly. Workers were fast, efficient, and SO CLEAN. The jobsite so clean I had to look in the bin to see if they worked! Of course they did, every day. I could hear them work--they laughed and joked and sang! A few hiccups came up with our old house, but the company didn't charge us any extra to fix those. This company exceeded my expectations in every regard and set a new bar for customer service. 100% recommend!!!

Best Underpinning company in Toronto

Simply put Jakub and his crew are the best in the city at what they do. Their workmanship is impeccable both inside and outside of your home. My family recently worked with them for the 2nd time on another 100 year old residential property in Leslieville and it couldnt have gone any better. When the city inspector came for the 1st time he told me that he had never seen underpinning work like theirs! We now have a basement ceiling height of over 8 and will never have to deal with any type of moisture issues. Our 100 year basement has been totally transformed and we couldnt be more thankful for the Inside Guys Underpinning!

Basement Underpinning

Jakub and team are exceptional.

Inside Guys helped us with our basement underpinning which was to plan, on budget, and on time. The team were always professional- often going the extra mile and helping us keep the whole house (inside/outside) clean. Even our neighbours loved the team! There were never any surprises as Jakub communicated ahead of time what to expect throughout the project.

We highly recommend Inside Guys Underpinning!

108 yr old Basement Transformed

There aren't enough positive words to convey how pleased I am that our basement was done by Inside Guys Underpinning. Let's start with Jakub a humble, honest man. Jakub and his team were amazing. For the type of dirty work they do digging excavating sometimes muddy at the end of each day, their tools were lined up so tidy against the wall. This is the biggest home reno my family and I have gone through, and while it took longer than expected because Jakub constantly communicated and explained matters to me, the delay was fine. If underpin is what you need, hire this company.

More about Inside Guys Underpinning

OUR COMPANY VALUES
Quality. Integrity. Value.

The Inside Guys are a full-service basement improvement company, with an emphasis on basement lowering, waterproofing and underpinning. Having worked in the industry for the past 26 years, on over 250 projects within the GTA for various construction companies, we noticed that there was something missing with some of these bigger companies: the communication and professionalism was lacking on many jobsites.

We decided to model our company based on higher ethical standards combined with superior craftsmanship. We realize that we are only as good as our last job and future work success is dependent on our reputation. We not only want to exceed your expectations for the work but also how smooth the project runs so we pride ourselves on being there from the day one until it’s done.
We care about what we build for you.

WE DO ALL THE WORK.

We work with every client, one-on-one from start to finish. We promise to not only quote the work, but to also do the work.

This is something unique in our industry – we want to bring back accountability to the jobsite and ensure homeowners are treated with knowledge and respect.

From the moment we take on your project, your peace of mind is our main priority. We want a clear and transparent process, with on-going communication and continuous support so you can be assured the job will get done right the first time.

We will not only promise to do all of the day to day work but we will also act as project supervisors and ensure that each project is constructed to plan with no variations. We will deal with the City of Toronto Inspectors directly so that no communication is lost if there are ever any discrepancies.
If you have any questions at the end of the day we will provide you with pictures of the day’s work and let you know what the next steps will be.

At the end of the day, it comes down to trust. We feel that we must earn it.

At the end of each job you will receive a folder that includes the original drawings, locates, inspection reports and a zip drive of images for your peace of mind.

Uncompromising quality, exceptional service, competitive pricing and unsurpassed results.
