Underpinning

Daniel and his team were great throughout our underpin. Very transparent and honest about price and the work that needs to get done, and his team was respectful of our house while the work was going on. All in all a painless renovation experience that I would definitely recommend.

Hi Sean,

I'm glad that such a large renovation was so painless. We like the easy, no surprise jobs too! Good luck with the rest of the renovations.

Basement Underpinning Of Victorian Home

True North Underpinning was a complete pleasure to work with. From the very beginning, during our initial consultation, we felt extremely comfortable with Daniel. He was very knowledgeable and gave us some additional insight we had not considered. Our house being a Victorian, built in the early 1900’s, we expected major challenges but the quote we received from Daniel showed the worst-case scenario. The team: Josh, Aubrey, Barney and Alex were great to work with. They were punctual, extremely hardworking and overall nice guys. Even my neighbour commented on how respectful and friendly they were. Best of all, this phase of the project was completely slightly ahead of schedule. They will be back in the spring to finish the exterior portion of the project and we actually look forward to see them again. We would highly recommend True North to anyone looking to underpin their basement.

Excellent team!

The team is knowledgeable, hard working and extremely polite! They arrived on time, cleaned up everything everyday and the project was completed early. We were informed of the work that was going to be done on a daily basis and we could always contact the site manager if we had questions. Highly recommend.

Underpinning

True North underpinning was great every step of the way. Daniel is very professional and honest and we liked how up front he was when it came to giving us a quote. Aubrey and his team were great. ..Hard working and my kids loved seeing them every day. I can not thank them enough for the job they did. I would highly recommend using True North and would use them again anytime.

Underpinning of porch wall.

I discovered the footing on a porch was not up to code. I wanted to enclose the porch but the footing only went down 12" below grade.
I called Daniel from True North Underpinning to have a look and within 24hrs he had a 2 man crew arrive to carry out the work. They carried out the work over the next few days. This is not the largest job for Daniel and his crew but the attention paid to the work and how well is was carried out was fantastic. I was able to enclose the porch before the cold weather arrived thanks to True North Underpinning.
Highly recommend for any Underpinning work.

Basement underpinning (semi-detached)

From the beginning when Daniel met with us at our home he was professional, knowledgeable, and put us at ease. While the project started a few weeks behind schedule, Daniel kept us informed of the unexpected timeline changes. His crew were exceptional. Professional, polite and ALWAYS on time. Also offering information and answering any inquiries, inclusive of those of neighbours (we live in a semi). Daniel followed up onsite at the end of the project to answer any outstanding questions and address any concerns. We highly recommend.

Hello,

Thank you for the detailed review and sorry again for being a couple weeks late to start. As i mentioned, we had a couple crazy projects this summer that kept us tied up longer than expected. All the best and enjoy the new basement.

Basement Underpinning and Walk out

This was a very challenging job that took substantially longer than expected. Notwithstanding, Dan and John pulled resources together to have as many as 9 people working the site when needed. Conditions were punishing but they didn't give up and greeted us each day with smiles. They worked through multiple injuries and engineering hiccups along the way.
The team was a pleasure to deal and are sorely missed by our little kids. Trevaughn, Fernando, Saul, Abdi were a few of the excellent workers that stood out. But the plumber adrian and engineer ram showed tremendous commitment even after the job was done to help us close the permits.
You pay more for this team but you get a lot more. Excellent service, professionalism, and communication. Over 16 weeks they never allowed our confidence to waver. Thank you True North for an excellent job.

Hi RP,

Thank you for the long and detailed review. Your job was a tricky one, but we pulled it off. I think we'll take a break from your street for a while. Enough of that water for now. Enjoy the new basement space and don't forget to send us some pics as you finish it.
