Brand new porch and stairs

We hired Fairney and Sons to redo our cement porch and stairs. They did a excellent job. They were professional, friendly, efficient and clean. They went above and beyond our expectations. Very happy with the job they did.

Residential fence and deck renovations (summer 2022)

We are homeowners in downtown Toronto's Leslieville neighbourhood. Bill and his team of contractors (masonry, carpentry, gas and electrical) were professional, communicative and courteous; they arrived and departed in a timely manner, and cleaned and tidied up after themselves on a daily basis. They were also accommodating when additional unexpected tasks were requested/required. The work on a new fence and deck were excellent. We've used Fairney and Sons often in the past, and will continue to do so in the future. - David & Daniel

Parging & Concrete Work

I was coordinating on behalf of my elderly mom some parging and concrete work along the side of her house -- basically repairing and sealing the side wall of the house; then removing old broken concrete between her house and the neighbour's and pouring new concrete down while creating a better drain slope. I got 4 quotes for my mom and Bill and Michael provided the best quote by far. They were very communicative and diligent in assessing the work to be done and were transparent with the quote. They scheduled us fairly quickly (considering how busy contractors are these days) and got the job done in the time they said they would. Some of the concrete work and parging required removal of old wooden steps that abutted the back wall of the house -- no problem! Bill had them removed and disposed of, had the parging and concrete work completed, and then had a carpenter on site a few days later to build new steps for my mom. This extra and agreed upon work came at a very reasonable fee and completed the whole job perfectly. Due to work, I was out of town while Bill's and Michael's team were there but Bill phoned and texted with me regularly, updating me on progress and getting my approval for any changes required. My mom's neighbour was also pleased with the work done and emailed us afterward to say that he "got the opportunity to chat with the team doing the work. They were great to work with, very communicative and did an excellent job." I would hire Fairney and Sons again for myself, and would recommend them to anyone!

Roof Replacement

Removed old slate-and-shingle and shingle roofs and replaced with new shingle; scrapped down and replaced large flat roof. Crew was very professional, hard-working, quiet and skilled. No extra noise (beyond the noise you make scraping down and replacing multiple roofs!) Care was shown regarding maintaining the angle of the TV antenna as it was reaffixed. Very satisfied.

Roof and Eavestrough replacement; Retaining wall and fence replacement

Fairney and Sons was invested in understanding both the problems that lead me to reach out to them, and also what I wanted as part of the solution. Where I didn't have knowledge of variables/options, what I needed to know to make informed decisions was explained to me. I was provided with quotes for the pieces of the projects separately, and upon agreement the replacements began with great efficiency. The projects took place over a few consecutive weeks, but equipment and garbage were tidied up at the end of each day. Communication with me/the client, as well as what I observed with contractors, was always efficient, respectful and thorough. I will absolutely reach out to Fairney and Sons for future needs.

Exterior Basement Waterproofing + Windows

Excellent experience with Bill and his crew on our exterior basement waterproofing and basement window replacement + window wells. Transparent pricing with explaining potential hidden costs we might come across. Open and consistent communication and top quality work. Job site was cleaned well after they wrapped up. A bonus to be able to support a business based out of East York where I live.

Front and Siding Replacement and Burst Pipe

Fairney and Sons is the best in the business: here's why. The majority of issues between contractors and homeowners boil down to miscommunication and a lack of updates. That was our PREVIOUS experience with a contractor we worked with. I was extremely hesitant to work with another tradesperson after our last guy lacked the necessary skills to do the job well. Not anymore! I don't normally take the time to write reviews but based on the exceptional experience we had with this team I couldn't pass up the opportunity to recommend Bill, the owner, and Patrick one of his tradespeople (pipe and drywall). Weve done two separate restoration projects with Bill. A front of the house siding replacement and a burst pipe. His estimates of work, and project management skills are top notch. He's extremely honest and fair, and genuinely went out of is way to help us solve our issue as quickly as possible. Bill treated us like a family member who has our best interest in mind. I don't say this lightly because I know how hard it is to find reliable, knowledgeable, and trustworthy trades these days. We've contacted Bill with a few other questions related to new issues around the property and he's been a godsent - giving us a sounding board to make informed decisions based on our budget and needs. It doesn't hurt that he's a very enjoyable person to interact with, and Patrick, one of his trades people was an absolute joy to work with - extremely professional and detailed. I can't recommend them enough! You're in reliable and trustworthy hands.
