Backyard fencing - with lots of complications

GSU Contracting did an outstanding fencing job for us and our neighbours. Competitive prices, very experienced team, very happy with them. They're busy, so give yourself some lead time to book a slot. Project manager Grant engendered confidence from the first visit to review/quote on our complicated project here in mid-town Toronto. i.e. Two different fencing styles for each neighbour set on a single set of new posts on the lot line, as well as some standard one-sided fencing with trees in the way on one segment, and uneven terrain on another. The crew was outstanding -- pleasant, efficient, careful, knowledgeable. They even dealt with some attached fencing for another neighbour, and left him happy too. One minor trailing issue (our oversight) was fixed promptly without additional charges. Bottom line: A top-tier operation -- with owner-operator Jay clearly engaged at all times.

Deck, walls, and pergola demolish and build

Jay and Zach were the only company willing to take on the herculean task of dismantling and rebuilding my 3rd floor roof deck, and I'm so glad they were! Because it is a row house, there is no access to the deck except through the house, meaning every piece of the old build and every new piece of wood had to be brought, by hand, down and up 2 flights of stairs. Not only did they undertake this without complaint, they did beautiful work, covering up a number of house-based issues. We've had nothing but compliments on the deck, both in person and in pictures, and it will surely be a selling point for any potential buyer in the future. For now, we get to enjoy this beautiful oasis in the city.

Subdivision Project

I contacted Green Side Up on behalf of my subdivision based on their high Homestars Rating.

From the onset both Jay and Grant were easy to deal with and despite some difficult and frustrating obstacles all sides were determined to see the project through which was greatly appreciated.

Despite of these obstacles, in the end our neighbourhood finally got the fencing we were waiting for (some including myself upwards of three years from moving in) and the majority of us agree that Green Side Up produced a great and long-lasting product.

I would not hesitate to recommend Green Side Up for your fencing needs... thanks again Jay and Grant!

From start to finish, Jay and Zach made the process so easy; they were nothing but professional, provided excellent service and spectacular workmanship on the construction of my new deck.

Custom fence

From the moment I met with Mariana who came to my home to review and estimate the price for my custom fence to be installed around my pool area..I knew that these guys were going to do an amazing job! And they certainly didn't disappoint! Zach was our carpenter for the project and the quality of his work is exceptional! His attention to detail was just perfect..he is also a really hard working guy with a really lovely laid back personality..it really was a pleasure to have him build our fence..I am so happy! I have had so many compliments on the design..I will definitely be hiring Zach again for any future projects.

Fence replacement

Thank you Jay, Mariana, John, Derek for making our fence replacement project such a satisfying experience.

We found Green Side Up on Home Stars and we are extremely pleased that we chose them to replace our fence. We were impressed by how professional, organized, and efficient Green Side Up is. We found that the quote for our fence project to be detailed and fair.

Our journey began with obtaining an initial estimate from their website. We found that the online calculator to be a really helpful tool as a first step. Next, we had a more detailed meeting with Mariana. She was a pleasure to deal with and offered numerous helpful suggestions to some of the issues we were dealing with. We were also impressed with how quickly Mariana (as Project Manager) and Jay responded to any of our inquiries prior to and during the project.

John and Derek were assigned to our project and they too were a pleasure to deal with. The fence that he and Derek built is beautiful. Looking at the fence, you can tell that the quality, workmanship, and attention to detail is top-notch. Thank you John and Derek for a great job! We appreciate the numerous helpful suggestions that John offered and for the gate that he built. We had decided to reuse our old gate, but with John having so much pride in his work, he could not fully complete the job without building a new gate. Our new gate is as beautiful as the rest of the fence. Both he and Derek were also conscious about cleaning up every day. Much appreciated.

Having first-hand experience with Green Side Up, we can see why GSU has won so many awards and deservedly so. Quality work and great service! Once again, thank you Jay, Mariana, John and Derek. 11 out of 10. We will definitely look to GSU for our next project.

Fence Replacement

We had our fence replaced and the workmanship was tremendous! The guys are very talented, skilled and hard working and kept us in the loop over the course of the two days. It was done on time, without any issues and the crew was great - very friendly, knowledgeable and took the time to speak with us throughout the project.

I would certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking for new or replacement fencing.

New Fence

Green Side Up did a great job replacing our wooden side fence. They replaced a different fence a year previously and we didn't hesitate to contact them again. Grant was once again responsive and helpful throughout, and managed the project efficiently. Chase did an excellent job leading the installation - he was friendly, skillful and found creative solutions to a few tricky areas. Very satisfied with Green Side Up.
