Basement underpinning

Jakub and his team were amazing the whole way through. Theirs was the most detailed and thorough quote I received. The work site was kept immaculate every day. Jakub was very responsive to all questions over email and text. No hesitation in recommending Inside Guys.

Underpinning

We loved working with Jakub and his team. They were the most professional and transparent contractors we’ve ever worked with. Branko their architect was always available for questions. Jakub was always keeping us informed throughout the job too. All the work was done on time and on budget. We got three quotes from other underpinners and we’re so glad we went with Jakub.

Back addition assessment

My home came with a back addition and I did not know how it was built. Neither did any of the independent contractors who I contacted for estimates on external work (waterproofing; patio installation). The unknown was always ‘What’s going on with the addition?” and “The final cost might depend on addition repairs”. I contacted Inside Guys Underpinning for an assessment. Jakub came out to take a look inside and out; and with my permission, pried up an old piece of wood decking to get a good look at what was going with the foundation of the extension. Long story short, I don’t need upderpinning, my addition like most in the neighbourhood is built on a wood and cement block on the ground. I could proceed with the patio repairs; and if needed Jakub would come out and make any repairs to seal up the foundation before the completion of the patio. There was no charge, but I would not hesitate to call Jakub again if needed for his expertise and repairs.

We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review even though we didn't do any work on your foundation! Sometimes work isn't required and that's ok, we want to make sure the owners are informed before investing money unnecessarily. We are glad the investigation put your mind at ease to continue with other work.

Warm Regards,
Inside Guys

Garage underpinning

Jakub assisted by Ogi, worked extremely well together in underpinning brickwork at the corner of our garage.

Inside Guys are professional outfit, do their work efficiently and leave things neat and tidy. They respected boundaries and we had no issues with our neighbour. Jakub is a very accommodating and graciously answered questions and offered suggestions. We appreciated a referral to a mason to replace the brickwork. We have every confidence in recommending Inside Guys to friends who also have aging buildings and water penetration problems.

Basement underpinning

I am pleased with the underpinning work by the Inside Guys especially Milton and Jakub. They are courteous, always available to answer any questions, and helpful suggesting ways to solve any problems that might arise. What I appreciate the most would be how they listened to any concerns, and cared for customers’ needs and wants. It was a bumpy road but thanks to their care and understanding the end results were top notch. Thank you Milton, Jakub and the team for a well done job.

Basement Underpinning

We hired Inside Guys to underpin our basement and they were absolutely fantastic to work with and I would highly recommend them.

Throughout the entire process Jakub and his team kept us updated and they were always available answer our questions in a timely manner which we really appreciated. They also completed our project on schedule as promised which I feel like is something that doesn't happen very often when it comes to renovation projects.

Inside Guys were also very considerate in terms of maintaining a clean worksite at the end of every day and two of our neighbours went out of their way to tell us how respectful the Inside Guys team was during this process.

I'm usually very hesitant to recommend a service but Inside Guys is a company that I would definitely use again. I should also note that their pricing was better than several other quotes we obtained for this project and our General Contractor (who had never worked with Inside Guys before) was very complimentary of their work and found them very easy to work with.

Awesome Underpinning

The Inside Guys are true professionals. They are great communicators, leave the worksite extremely clean and are very conscientious about all the details. I am a picky designer and the Inside guys delivered 100%

Incredibly Demanding Project

We hired the Inside Guys for a very intricate project with very tight working quarters and zero site access and they exceeded our expectations. Budget and timeline was as discussed. Communication throughout the project was thorough, workmanship excellent, site was kept super clean and daily clean up was never missed. Would highly recommend!

100 + year old home ~ Benching, Waterproofing and New Slab

We loved working with Jakub, Milton and their crew.

They were always early, in a good mood and respectful.

We have been managing this project to my own home and this was the one big job we found a sub-contractor for, I haven't bothered in most other cases because I usually find with subs come stress - it was the exact opposite in this case.

They took care of my home as if it was there's, staying late when needed and always including us in the process - but not too much.

I am looking forward to bringing them back when completing future projects in the future.

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.
