Basement floor replacement and lowering

Jakub and his team were consummate professionals and we could not be more pleased with their work. Inside Guys arrived on time, communicated well, kept job site exceptionally clean and organized and completed the job so as to exceed expectations. These guys are hard workers who really know their craft. In addition to re-doing the concrete floor, Jakub gave us some good ideas to better address walls and plumbing and generally create extra space and improved aesthetics in what is a near original basement in a century old home. Very happy that we chose Inside Guys Underpinning and strongly recommend. Thank you guys!

Basement Underpinning.

LOOK NO FURTHER for underpinning and waterproofing. I can't think of a single thing to complain about. The whole experience with Jakub and the Insude Guys crew was painless. Every single question I had was answered. Any minor issue encountered was taken care of. And these guys keep a clean, tidy and professional worksite. No neighbour complaints. This is the only company I've ever worked with that I'm comfortable recommending to others. Honestly, I can't say enough positive things here. Just a pleasure to work with. Scott Gorman

Rear basement entrance

I have previously used INSIDE GUYS to underpinned, lower, and waterproof my basement. They did an excellent job. I got approval from the city to put a rear entrance to my basement and I used INSIDE GUYS again I could not be more happy. They were professional, courteous, and got the job done. The owner will drop by and ensure the site was clean and tidy and orderly. I would not hesitate to recommend them again.

Foundation Work

Our home required foundation work. The team was highly professional, responsive, and thorough in their work. The quote provided was accurate. The work was done on time and with an impeccable level of professionalism. This company did an amazing job and I would recommend them for all foundation needs.

Basement lowering and walkout

An excellent experience!

Jakub and his crew lowered the basement floor of my 100 year old semi by about 18" and added a new front walkout stair. They also installed a steel frame (engineered by others) to remove an interior structural wall. The work included new floor drains, sewer backflow preventer, sump pump, and interior waterproofing. Jakub also coordinated with an in-floor heating installer before pouring the new concrete floor slab.

Jakub was at all times easy to reach and quick to respond. He provided a detailed cost breakdown with some optional extras (like the backflow valve) and there were no surprises with the final cost.

My general contractor (working on the overall house renovation of which this was a part) said Inside Guys did some of the best underpinning work he'd seen -- and I trust his judgement! In particular, he was impressed with the crew's professional attitude and care when it came to keeping the site and surroundings clean and orderly. He also said that they did a remarkably good job on the slab pour, which we are polishing and leaving exposed as the finished basement floor.

3’ Underpinning of a 1903 Victorian in Downtown Toronto

The project was to underpin a 1903 Victorian semi-detached home by 38 to achieve a finished 8 ceiling. The business owners provided a detailed quote, kept to the schedule that was negotiated, provided a cleaning service to keep dust down, all employees courteous and left the basement clean. Any issues we had due to underpinning in the winter were resolved promptly.
This is a great team to work with even if youre a first time renovator. My advice is to go with them!

Full basement underpin and waterproofing went beautifully! Best experience.

This family-run business, with principle contact Jakub, operated at such a high level of professionalism that my family couldn't stop raving about them. They are expert communicators, answering the phone promptly and always ready to make an on-site visit if required. They worked hard, took great care and showed a respect for our space, leaving it clean every night. Unbeknownst to us, their cost even included a house cleaner who came once a week to ensure there wasn't much dust. Unbelievable! They finished the project on time, on budget. We are incredibly impressed.

Jakub is one of the most professional and reliable guy

Jakub is honestly one of the best. He was bang on with the estimate. Very easy to reach by email or phone. His employees were the hardest working guys, I've seen.
The finished job was a dream come true!

Best contractor we have ever used

Inside Guys were amazing to deal with from start to finish. Jakub was extremely responsive to all questions and got back to is usually within minutes of an inquiry.

The work was done on time and on budget.

The biggest surprise was how clean this crew worked given how dirty digging out a basement can be. They tidied up at the end of every day and they even provided a cleaner to take care of the house for the duration of their work.

I would not hesitate to recommend Inside Guys for your underpinning project.

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.
