Tricolour Concrete Ltd. invites you to read through some of the testimonials of our happy and satisfied clients.
“We contracted Tricolour Concrete to complete the work on the basement. Throughout the 4-week project, we were impressed by the professionalism, courteous nature, cleanliness and welcoming attitudes of all workers toward our kids. What's more, the work was completed ahead of schedule and on budget!”

“Tri-Colour lowered our basement with a bench footing and replaced the foundation to an existing addition of our home that was heaving from frost. Their price was competitive, we were really happy with the quality of their work and impressed how fast they were, finishing ahead of schedule. They were easy to deal with, work incredibly hard and cleaned up very well after every day. After they finished the job they did a very thorough clean-up of all their access points to the job. I will definitely use them in the future and recommend them to friends and family.”
“Pat, Tony, Connie and John did a great job underpinning our basement. They showed up on time and worked diligently each day. We have a young child who spent most of the time at home during the project, so we were concerned with having people working in the house for an extended period. With that said, we were very happy with the crew who were very friendly and courteous to us and our child. For a project as invasive as underpinning, they did a great job of isolating themselves in the basement with as little disruption to us as possible. I wholeheartedly recommend Pat, Tony and their crew.”
Efficient and Tidy
“I initially contacted Tricolour in late May along with 4 other companies who specialized in basement renovations and underpinning to get quotes and a timeline to undertake the work, should we decide to go with them. We selected Tricolour, not only because they came recommended from a neighbour who used them a couple years earler, but they were also the most responsive in terms of answering questions, providing clarifications when asked and of course price.
You will still need to get an architect to do up the building plans for submission to the city to get the permits. But Pat and Tony were very helpful in giving us direction to ensure the plans were done correctly. Once we decided to go with Tricolour, couldn't have asked for a better outcome. They initially told us it would take 4-5 weeks to complete (done in 3-1/2 weeks) and would be available to start work first week of August (equipment arrived the Friday before).
They came in around 7am everyday, set up the protective tarps for our garden and the neighbour's house (we have a small laneway between the two houses, so all of the dirt came out the window). And they laid tarps down inside the house (from the back door to the basement) to protect our hardwood floors in the kitchen.
At the end of the day, they picked up the tarps and ensured the house was secure. And they ensured there were no mounds of dirt in the laneway thereby enabling us and our neighbours to have access to the backyard. On garbage day, they ensured the bins were moved from the sides of both houses to the street first thing in the morning and were returned to their locations at the end of the day.
The best part of the experience, there were no surprises. They finished ahead of schedule, on budget and all the requisite building inspections with the city passed.
Since the work was completed, we've had no issues with any of their work (ejector pit for basement drainage, sump pump pit for the weeping tile, new drainage lines) and no dampness to speak of at all. And they were quick to respond when I had questions from my plumber about the drainage lines. I just wish the contractors we hired to finish the basement after the underpinning work were as reliable, efficient and tidy as Pat, Tony and crew.”
“Pat, Tony, and their crew did a great job from start to finish. Their quote was competitive, they were always responsive to phone calls and emails, they started on time every day and kept the work site clean. I was kept informed on things as they progressed, and they worked really well with other trades coming in. They explained options clearly and solved problems, and even finished ahead of time. A contractor working next door told me he could tell they knew what they were doing. Everything came out great, the process went very smoothly, and everyone was a pleasure to interact with, plus they were really nice to my little boy, who loved watching it all. Great service all around - absolutely recommended.”
