Removal of load bearing walls and installation of I beams and LVL

I wanted to remove some load bearing walls and put in place some beams. Friend of mine recommended Alex so I gave him a try Alex was very professional. Gave a quote and pretty much stuck to the price. He did a great job and everything looks great. He took great care to check his work and make sure everything was safe. Highly recommended.

Removal of 2 structural walls

We wanted to open up the space in our newly purchased home. This meant the removal of 2 load bearing walls, and the installation of beams, to go from 3 rooms to a single, open concept space. We did our research and found Aldo Structural on Home Stars. Alex from Aldo visited the site and provided expert advice. We moved forward with Aldo and were immediately impressed with Alex and his team. Aldo provided end to end service, including drawings and permit application. They were efficient, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Alex was friendly, personable and always willing to answer any questions. Aldo Structural finished the job on time and on budget and the results are simply amazing. Everyone who sees Aldo's work, including other contractors and trades people, are simply amazed at the results and compliment Aldo's high quality work. If you need structural walls to be removed, call Aldo. I wholeheartedly recommend them. You definitely won't be disappointed.

Solarium construction and interior wall removal

Alex did a fantastic job! I wanted to build a custom solarium for my tropical plant collection, a project for which I had only a vague vision and very limited understanding of the actual work involved. Alex was extraordinarily helpful in working out the nuts and bolts, guiding my decision-making in areas where I had little experience and going out of his way to find creative solutions for the many difficulties associated with realizing this one-of-a-kind project in a very tight space. The final result is beautiful as well as functional! Alex also removed an interior wall in a separate part of the house, exposing and cleaning an aesthetically attractive brick portion that had formerly been hidden by plaster.

Not only is Alex technically skilled and creatively talented, but he is also very organized, communicative, and transparent. It was easy to ask questions and get quick answers, and he always made sure I understood the advantages and disadvantages of various choices. He clearly outlined his workflow and updated me whenever his plans changed, and he was very upfront about the cost of individual project elements so that I could trust he was being fair. He was also very reasonable when it came to unforeseen challenges; he worked especially long hours to complete the project after his work crew lost one member. I'm incredibly lucky to have found Alex for my project, and I'll certainly call him back for my next renovation!

Removal of Foundation Wall and Steel Beam Installation

I have nothing but good things to say about Alex and his company. We presented him with the difficult task of removing a load bearing cinderblock wall, preparing and pouring two concrete footings, and installing two steel posts and an 18 foot steel beam.

Alex was calculated and methodical throughout the duration of the job. Both he and his crew worked extremely hard and efficiently to remove the wall and I had 100% confidence in their ability to perform the work safely and to do exactly what they set out to do.

If you are looking for a structural contractor for a home renovation, as either a home owner or a general contractor, do not hesitate to contact Alex and to use Aldo Structural for your project. You will not regret it.

LVL for open concept

I wish I met Alex earlier and use his engineer and surveyor for my project.My renovation would be so much less stressful.Do not be foolish like me and hire Alex “all inclusive”-you will save tons of time ,nerves and money.I absolutely seriously think that Alex is touched by”construction God Mother”Everything he touches turns into something even better than was initially designed.Very professional,precise,thorough ,fair pricing for job.Hope my review will help some homeowners to find peace of mind when they bring Alex for their project.

Remove walls and insert beams with post

A truly skilled tradesman. Not only will Alex and his crew get the job done. He will problem solve every possible issue to resolve your intendended plans! The outcome was even better than the original planning and done with integrity. Installed were steel beams replacing all supporting walls with steel posts well made to precision! In 2 weeks this major construction was completed with Alex's engineer even modifying the original engineering drawings! Overall impressed and would recommend to anyone redesigning the structure in their home!

Load Bearing Wall Removal

One of the most difficult decisions for a homeowner during a renovation is to select a contractor with the right skills who has recruited the right talent to complete your project. My project involved a 30’ load bearing wall removal and a new post to be relocated in the basement. My home was built in 1978, a typical 4 bedroom 2 car garage. Needless to say things like basement posts and beam sizes in the basement were undersized by today's standards. Aldo Contracting not only met my exceptions but surpassed them in all areas. These guys surpassed minimum code in all areas without the need to hold their hand throughout the construction process. I will do business with Aldo again. Aldo Contracting sets the diamond standard for construction.

A huge recommendation for Alex of ALDO. Great communications.

Removed a load bearing wall on the main floor of our home in downtown Toronto. Delivered on time. Delivered on budget. Sees the big picture and smallest details down to the last nail. I plan to hire Alex again on the next big project.
