Retaining Wall and Fence

This fence job is something we were both looking forward to greatly and had immense nerves about for a long time. We had seen our previous, old, badly constructed fence take quite a beating over the past couple of years as the climate and sloping backyard gave it a beating. At first, we were thinking of finding an alternative to the customary wood fence because we wondered whether thinking of different materials would help it last longer. We wanted to make sure our fence was as close to a forever fence as could be. The work this team did has exceeded our expectations.

Jay and his team were wonderful to work with from beginning to end. They are professional, organized, great at communicating (something we notice is in short supply in the contracting world), and take great pride in their work. The retaining wall they made is something beautiful. And the fence looks like it will keep all the zombies away once the apocalypse hits;)

Thanks Jay, Zach, and team!

Deck and Roof Rebuild

I had to rebuild the deck and roof above it because the previous owner built them without permit. After obtaining the building permit I contacted a few reputable deck builders in GTA for quotes. Green Side Up Contracting was probably the last few I contacted but the first to provide me the quote. Jay actually sent Zach the next day to inspect the site before providing the quote. The quote was very competitive compare to other contractors. After reading through the reviews here I chose to go with Green Side Up Contracting and I think this is one of the best decision I've made. The job involved:
- Demolishing and disposal of the existing deck and roof
- New concrete piers to the depth of 48" or more
- Rebuilding the deck and roof

Jay was very patience with me even when I changed the materials used for the job and provided the updated quote which I couldn't refuse. He ensured the job started on the promised date, managed the project very well, ensured my questions are answered and worries are taken cared of, and completed the project to my satisfaction.

Zach, who demolished and built the deck, was just a one man army. I've never seen a hard-worker like him. He was not only a perfectionist but also ensured the job was done to my satisfaction and provided useful suggestions when I was in doubt. Jay & Zach ensured the deck and roof was built strong and beautiful- for example, the drawing only called for 16" inch on centre joists but these guys built the joist 12" apart, installed beautiful joist hangers for the roof and brackets for the posts, wide pickets for the guard rails and many more.

In the end I have a beautiful Trex deck - (Spiced Rum spiced rum with Vintage Lantern picture frame) with aluminum guard rails. I will definitely hire Jay and his crew for any future projects.

Fence project for 4 Neighbours

This is hands down the best experience i have had with a contractor. Jay made this so easy, especially when dealing with 4 different yards, and all the neighbours attached. Jay is the most responsive contractor I have ever dealt with, so their was never a question of when things would be completed. Jay walked us through the process step by step, so their were no surprises. The fences look amazing. I would highly recommend Green Side Up Contracting, for any contracting needs. I will be using them for all my contracting needs.

New Fence / Gates and Drain

We hired GreenSide up to help us replace our fence and solve a drainage issue we had for years. We were in the middle of a Reno and one of our Neighbours wanted an earlier start date and additional work. GreenSide was incredibly accommodating and came in early to do half the project and additional work for our Neighbours. They were then able to wait a couple of months with no additional cost and came back to finish the work.

There was even a last minute hiccup where we had to delay slightly further due to a last minute Reno change. GreenSide had no issues working to accommodate our schedule. Zack was incredibly friendly, flexible and willing to assist where ever he could. The site was left clean each day.

They were also able to accommodate a last minute request to help install a fence drain to solve our water issues!

A few weeks after the project we had an issue with one of the gates. GreenSide dropped by without any issue and at no cost to fix the issue.

They did an awesome job and I would recommend them for their quality and flexibility!

First a beautiful deck then an amazing fence!

Green Side Up built a beautiful deck for us in 2018. They just completed a brand new fence along our property. The crew did an amazing job, completing the work quickly. The fence is exactly the way we wanted it. Jay and his team are excellent indeed!

Great service and great communication!

Thank you Jay and Mariana! They helped us out of a pinch and did a great job. We had hired a fencing contractor/handyman who was unable to do the job, due to illness. I called Jay in early November and he and his crew got the job down by the 3rd week in November, despite the snow and freezing temperatures. We had to replace an old fence and gate, after having removed a large, dying tree.
Their crew members were polite, considerate and more importantly, did a great job! I LOVE the new gate!
The work had to be paused during the below zero temperatures but it was completed in very reasonable time, which impressed us. Jay is excellent at communicating with the customer and we were always aware of the process. We will have them back in the spring to do more work.
