Removing two load bearing walls

After calling a bunch of companies in an attempt to figure out how to get our load bearing walls removed, I was happy to find Holden. He was patient and detailed with answering the many questions we had. His knowledge and experience with the permit process was very valuable to our renovation project.

LARCON provided an all-in-one solution. They brought in the engineers to come up with a plan, got the plan approved with the city, got the work done with precision and were also on site to ensure the city inspector was satisfied with the work done.

We had renovated washrooms on the top floor just before starting our wall removal project and were very concerned about damage to the new washrooms caused by movement of the floor joists. Holden's team tries very hard to keep house movement to an absolute minimum. They were true to their words - movement was "within 1mm" and no damage was caused to the top floor washrooms.

Very happy with the work done. I highly recommend LARCON for load bearing wall removal projects.

structural wall removed and beam installed

Wow. What an incredible experience. These guys are pros. Holden is so knowledgeable. Explained as much as we wanted to learn, and gave us all the options we needed to make our decision about how much to remove and what to replace it with. His crew even started earlier than originally anticipated and set off our home renovations on a positive note. We LOVE our new open concept main living area and you can’t tell there used to be a wall there. Thank you guys - our house looks AWESOME now.

Load Bearing Removal

I wanted to take the time to write and made sure I included every single detail.

When I started looking to have some load bearing walls removed from my newly purchased home that I stripped to the studs, I contacted a lot of companies…6 to be exact. Some said that what I wanted couldn’t be completed and others said that we just needed 1 LVL beam across the whole span of 35 feet. I grew up in a family of contractors as well as having experience in a fair bit of home renovations myself, so I knew that 1 LVL beam was not going to cut it and actually concerned me that some companies would even offer that as an option.

Enter Holden…I knew from the first meeting I wanted to hire him and his team. The passion alone that these gentleman share in what they do is extraordinary. The workmanship that they do is extraordinary. The attention to detail is extraordinary. They communication is extraordinary. Everything is just extraordinary.
They arrived at 7am everyday and cleaned up the area everyday before they left, leaving such a tidy work zone. We had 2 large flitch beams and 2 large steel beams going up, it was such an amazing process to watch. They took the time and explained every detail to me a long the way which I appreciated.

The tricky part was that I didn’t want a post anywhere on the main floor and have the beams flush to the ceiling… Larcon made it happen. I had a budget and Holden worked with me on that, they were very fair in my opinion given the amount of work that was needed. I knew that they would provide me not only with what I needed BUT the piece of mind knowing that my house was not going to collapse at any given time in the future. I think people need to understand that when you are dealing with the structure of your home its important to work with people that specialize in this type of work. Larcon does this day in and day out and it definitely shows.

They started the project ahead of schedule on August 27th and completed the project on August 29th…ahead of schedule. They even took extra time on the Friday to re-frame my entire upstairs because they said it wasn’t to code. They care…a lot.
I can not thank these gentleman enough for the hard work and dedication that they put into my project. I would tell anyone to hire them in a heartbeat. When it comes to the structure of your home trust me you want Larcon involved. Thanks Holden, Taylor and team :)

Install beam to support double brick exterior wall.

Holden and his team are prompt, professional, fair and diligent. From the quote to the completion of the work- every step was smooth and stress free. Every step of the process was clearly explained and options were provided to a potential complication ( that turned out not to be an issue).
My home is a century home downtown Toronto and we removed the back double brick wall to create an open concept main floor.
My boyfriend and I are completely impressed with Larcon. They do beams and they do them right!! I would highly recommend this company....if I could give them 100 stars I could.

Basement structural beam replacement from wood to steel with addition of 2 supporting posts

Holden and his team were highly professional taking on this small project (in comparison to other of his projects) their team was on time and punctual everyday and delivered exactly what was expected. Their assistance with getting the proper engineering team, permits and proper inspections were very timely as well. Overall we are very pleased with both the final work and also experience working with them. I would not hesitate recommending them for any structural job.

Thank you Holden and the Larcon team!

Kitchen and Main Floor Reno

Holden and his Larcon crew were amazing. We wanted to remove two major load bearing walls without the need for a support post in the middle of the room. Holden offered a solution that incorporated a large steel beam running from one end of the house to the other and delivered the project on time, on budget with all the necessary drawings , permits and final inspections. This crew is definitely at the top of their trade. We are ecstatic with the final result! I would strongly recommend Larcon for any of your structural needs!

Kitchen renovation and main floor

Where do I start... Immediately when Holden came to quote we knew we were sold. His friendly but very professional approach was really appreciated as a first time major renovators! We had originally only planned to take walls down to open our very small (980 sq foot) bungalow but Holden suggested that we vault the ceiling of the main living area and entrance. He was honest about the fact that it was a once in lifetime opportunity to open up that area... was he ever right. His price was incredibly competitive and his team was clean and very punctual. We are beyond words to express how happy we are with the entire project. The engineering plans were amazing and very detailed and the inspector was so impressed. We were even offered to visit other projects in the neighbourhood that were completed... I could go on forever and would be happy to recommend Larcon to anyone.

Hi Natalia & Andrew,

Wow, what do I say... Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a wonderful review, we really appreciate it!! I'm so glad you guys decided to vault the ceilings rather than just remove the load bearing walls. It made the biggest difference and it's something you'll be able to enjoy for years to come! I hope the rest of your project is going well and you're able to enjoy your new open concept layout in no time. If you guys ever have any questions, please contact me directly and I'll be glad to assist.
