Walls removal on the main floor, creating an open concept layout

Contacted Alex for walls removal on the main floor, creating an open concept kitchen-living room layout. Alex was offering structural drawings as part of his services which was very convenient as I didnt have to look for a structural engineer specializing in residential buildings myself. Structural drawings were received in a couple of days, signed by the engineer which allowed us to proceed with implementing bearing walls removal. Alex and Philip came on time every day and conducted work in a professional and neat manner, observing safety and high execution standards. Support steel beams were installed in literally one day once delivered by the manufacturer. Alex also did all the correspondence with the city on my behalf, including obtaining the city permit and passing inspection. In conclusion, I will definitely recommend Alex and Philip for your structural project. Adhering to high performance standards and uncompromising work quality set them apart from any other structural contractors in the GTA area. If you need the project done professionally and in a timely matter Alex and Philip are the guys to contact.

Beam Replacement, Lintel, Joist Sistering

The Aldo team did an outstanding job replacing the beam supporting a 100 year old house, involving removing the existing support pillar and installing a new support post and footing in order to increase the usable space and properly support and level the floor above. This project also involved sistering a joist and installing a lintel above the cold room and was completed within a week.

It was clear from the start Alex knows his business inside and out and takes pride in completing work the right way. What sets him apart: expertly navigating the permit process, open and timely communication, always being punctual, working with the engineer to develop the initial plans and handle any surprises along the way, obtaining custom made steel components with exceptional turnaround time from the vendor, and even going above and beyond with a few additional improvements I hadn't initially even asked for!

Major Structural Remodeling

We needed some major structural changes done in our 100 year old house to make it our dream home, and the Aldo team brought us a big step forward towards that goal! The scope of our project included replacing existing columns and beams in the basement, relocating the basement stairs, removal of two load bearing walls on the main floor, and opening up the rear wall for a new patio door.
During the initial consultations, we found the team to be very knowledgeable, with extensive experience dealing with hidden pitfalls in older homes like ours. That gave us the confidence to engage Aldo to proceed with the work, and we are so glad we did! Due to the age of the house, we encountered many unforeseen challenges and surprises along the way, but the Aldo team helped us navigate through them each time. Through-out the project, the team worked tirelessly within very tight constrains while still being mindful of the bigger picture and end product. Alex and Philip, thank you for all your hard work! It did not go unnoticed!

Ceiling project by Aldo Structural Contracting

After discovering cracks on my ceiling last fall, I spent weeks to find the contractor, some gave me no reply, no show, some even told me it was an easy patching job. Fortunately, I found Alex, who response right away, took it seriously and got the job done in the right way.

Wall removal and ceiling job for old house is tricky, you will find new surprises during the process, like mine, you really need someone like Alex, who is experienced and capable to provide solutions to solve those problems on site, one by one. From watching the team planning on how to move the 23 feet long beam into the house with limited openings, to listening how he communicate and work closely with the engineer to solve the unforeseen issues, it fully demonstrated Alex is the man you can put your money and trust on.

Structural Work done with Care

Trustworthy, great communication, knowledgeable, thorough. Aldo Structural did a fantastic job. I was thoroughly impressed with the level of detail and care that Alex and his team put into their work. They took the time to explain the work, when issues arose because of the unknowns hidden behind the walls, they worked well with the engineer to find a quick and workable solution in order to get the job done in the timeline committed. I had 5 beams and a new basement support column with foundation installed. They competed the job in 4 days! He must have a great relationship with his steel supplier as he was able to get customs beams in a little over one week. I would use Alex again without hesitation.
