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.

Sump pump repair

This is the first review Ive ever written. I had a small but tricky job repairing a sump pump under some cabinetry. Most places wouldnt take on such a job, but these guys were willing to help out at a more than fair price, and their solution was well thought out and well executed. Will definitely use them again if we ever have a bigger job for them.

Jakob and the team are the best in the business

We love working with Jakob and The Inside Guys team because theyre super reliable, communicative, honest and hard working, and the work they do is really high quality. Job site cleanliness is also top notch. Weve worked with a bunch of contractors and trades over the years, and there arent too many out there with as high of standards as The Inside Guys. We recommend them wholeheartedly.

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

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.
