Major Structural Remodeling

We needed some major structural changes done in our 100 year old house to make it our dream home, and the Aldo team brought us a big step forward towards that goal! The scope of our project included replacing existing columns and beams in the basement, relocating the basement stairs, removal of two load bearing walls on the main floor, and opening up the rear wall for a new patio door.
During the initial consultations, we found the team to be very knowledgeable, with extensive experience dealing with hidden pitfalls in older homes like ours. That gave us the confidence to engage Aldo to proceed with the work, and we are so glad we did! Due to the age of the house, we encountered many unforeseen challenges and surprises along the way, but the Aldo team helped us navigate through them each time. Through-out the project, the team worked tirelessly within very tight constrains while still being mindful of the bigger picture and end product. Alex and Philip, thank you for all your hard work! It did not go unnoticed!

Ceiling project by Aldo Structural Contracting

After discovering cracks on my ceiling last fall, I spent weeks to find the contractor, some gave me no reply, no show, some even told me it was an easy patching job. Fortunately, I found Alex, who response right away, took it seriously and got the job done in the right way.

Wall removal and ceiling job for old house is tricky, you will find new surprises during the process, like mine, you really need someone like Alex, who is experienced and capable to provide solutions to solve those problems on site, one by one. From watching the team planning on how to move the 23 feet long beam into the house with limited openings, to listening how he communicate and work closely with the engineer to solve the unforeseen issues, it fully demonstrated Alex is the man you can put your money and trust on.

Structural Work done with Care

Trustworthy, great communication, knowledgeable, thorough. Aldo Structural did a fantastic job. I was thoroughly impressed with the level of detail and care that Alex and his team put into their work. They took the time to explain the work, when issues arose because of the unknowns hidden behind the walls, they worked well with the engineer to find a quick and workable solution in order to get the job done in the timeline committed. I had 5 beams and a new basement support column with foundation installed. They competed the job in 4 days! He must have a great relationship with his steel supplier as he was able to get customs beams in a little over one week. I would use Alex again without hesitation.

Load Bearing Wall Removal

While renovating our 50 year old house, we discovered we had a load bearing wall in the main living area. Aldo Structural Contracting was able to quickly provide designs, demolition and have the beam delivered to be installed. The team did a fantastic job in such little time and we are very happy with our new open concept.

Kitchen renovation

I was very pleased with the strategies used by Aldo to deal with removal of a brick wall in a 150-year-old house, and the quality of the finished work. This was the central part of the whole renovation, and now I have the confidence it was done right. The Aldo team also worked late into the night twice to get the job finished on schedule.

Sagging 2nd Floor

My project was to replace a beam which had been installed a few years prior because of renovation being done to my 2nd floor bathroom. When we had initially purchased the place, the previous owner had removed a wall between the living and dining room to make it open concept without putting any additional support in. Over the years as I lived in the house, I noticed that the 2nd floor was sagging but I thought it was due to age of the home. I had decided to renovate my 2nd floor bathroom, the contractor noticed that the floor was sagging and recommended that I put in a beam on the main floor which I did. After approximately 4 years after the work was done, I noticed that the sagging started to happen again. I decided at which time that I seriously needed to investigate it, so I started doing research online as to what the cause maybe and started contacting various companies. I initially thought that my foundation was sinking so I had a professional company come out and the completed a detailed examination and advise that my foundation was perfectly fine but recommended contacting a structural engineer. I didn’t know anyone, so I started googling and found several companies. The first company I contacted, I had the guy come out and I felt like he was just telling me anything that he thought I wanted to hear to get the job but not what I needed to know. When I contacted ALDO, we spoke briefly at first but then he called me back and we had a more detailed conversation. I explained the issue to him, and he walked me through several different scenarios. I sent him some pictures and video that evening. Aldo came out a several days later and he did a very thorough examination of my place and I mean thorough. He spent almost 2 hours looking at every inch of my place and even sit down with me to explain in detail what he had found and the way to remediate the issue. He took the time to walk me through step by step and explain the process to me from start to finish. He even walked me through the process of obtaining a permit and explained the importance of having a proper permit for the work.

The timing of this project came at a very stressful moment, when we all were working from home but wanted to sell and move to a larger house. Due to obvious liability and pricing situations, I couldn’t put up the house for sale in those conditions. It is important to get the job done the right way the first time as it will save you a lot of time and money. I have learned the hard way the importance of having proper engineering drawings and proper implementation process and as well as using the proper resources for the work.

ALDO structural responded very promptly to our needs, did a detailed assessment of the situation, prepared the structural drawings, and obtained the building permit in record time. They also had their insurance company issuing us a liability certificate directly on our name: extra piece of mind! The implementation was flawless, and inspection passed with flying colours!

After the work was completed, I now had to put my place back together to get it on the market, ALDO introduced me to his professional network: we ended up hiring that team of realtors, who came in also with a full package: they finished the renovation, house cleaning, staging and sale.

I would hire ALDO again for any future projects that I may have and strongly recommend their services for your future structural projects. If you are looking for someone that will be totally transparent and tell you what is going on and not beat around the bush, ALDO is the guy for you. He is honest and straight forward and those are the things I appreciate when working with a contractor.
