Great price, great value, honest and knowledgeable staff

I received multiple quotes from other contractors but Wise Guys gave me the best (and most reasonable) quote right away. They were very responsive and accommodating to my last minute changes/requests and made themselves available when my schedule permitted. They were friendly and very meticulous with their work. Wayne put in 150% throughout the entire process. He took extra care and time to ensure that the measurements were done properly. He used the best quality materials to ensure that the pad would drain properly and hold up to pressure over time. He is very knowledgeable about concrete and knows what he's doing. He is also not out to make more money off of you. I inquired about more expensive types of finishes and he was upfront and honest and told me how much maintenance would be required yearly and how the weather would affect the durability of the type of finish i was looking into. Because of that, I was able to make an educated decision for myself. I highly recommend him for any concrete project. The quality is good, price is very fair and the staff are honest.

Front porch, walkway and driveway extension

We hired Wayne and his crew after getting multiple quotes.
We are impressed with the final product. It gives our home a more updates look with clean lines and a safe, stylish porch and walkway. We also have space to park an extra car.

Front porch

It has taken me almost a year to write this review. If I had written it in the summer of 2019 I would have been too irate. So I waited until now.

Wayne and his crew were respectful and the constant delays to building my porch were due to constant rain and not Wayne's fault. I haave however a number of concerns to share.

1) Gravel was delivered ahead of time and I had not been informed of it's delivery. After the porch had been poured, said gravel hadn't been used and remained on my driveway for at least 3 weeks. This, despite my repeated emails and voicemails asking him to come pick it up. The only reason Wayne came to pick it up was because I said I would write a scathing review on Homestars.

2) In excavating the area to frame the porch, all dirt soil, debris etcetera was taken to my back yard and poured into one of my gardens as well as an already overflowing compost area. I thought when someone came to do this kind of work they were supposed to take what had been excavated away!

3) Wayne showed me a few colour palettes and we matched them to the brick on my house. I had chosen a sand colour according to the palette swatches he showed me. The porch that was poured is pink. I expressed my disappointment at the time only to be told it would fade. Nine months later and after one winter it is still pink! And, I hate it.

4) The concrete pour splashed all over the bottom framework of my front window as well as the existing concrete door tread leading into the house. It was not cleaned up and remains to this day an ugly glued on concrete mess.

5) The inside 90 degree corner between the porch and step up to the front door was not smoothed out properly. Gravel is readily apparent. To me that indicates a shoddy job or lack of skill.

Wayne and company, if you read this and are willing to fix the mistakes including the ugly pink colour of the porch and the concrete over splash then maybe I could promote you and your business in a better light. As I wrote above, if I had written this review last summer when I was very angry it would have been much nastier.

Hello Joanne,
Thank you for your review.
Sorry we didnt meet your standards, a few things to point out:
1) You chose the colour of the concrete, the colour is provided by the Ready Mix company, not my company. I have nothing to do with the colour of the concrete.
If you remember I told you not to choose that colour I told you to go with Boulder grey you wanted Brown to match your house.
2) The dirt that we excavated you gave us permission to put in the back corner since it was a minor amount I even have it in my contract, you also watched us put the dirt there.
3) As for the Step at the 90-degree corner, when you add colour to concrete and the forms are removed we are unable to parge, due to color matching issues.
I'm sorry that you're unhappy with the way the colour of your concrete turned out, I will do everything in my power to rectify the situation with the ready mix company that provided the colour.
Again thank you for your review. I will say we could have done better getting the stone out of your driveway a little quicker, but the weather last season backed me up substantially and I apologize for that.

***Update**** went to this customers house and sealed her concrete for free, and darkened it up, and still the review remains..........***

FRONT ENTRANCE PORCH AND STAIRWAY

I had Wiseguys hired to do my front porch and stairs with exposed concrete after a recommendation from a friend of mine and I was not disappointed. After following special instructions from Wayne for proper curing it turned out great. Wayne came himself for final finishing, touch ups and sealing. Great guys, great service, awesome job! A very happy customer indeed.

Great work

I contacted Wayne to remove and redo the concrete in my parents garage and walkway. Wayne gave me a great deal and promised the work would be completed in 3 days. He was true to his word and his team did great work. Wayne returned a month after the concrete was laid to put the finishing coat on himself and we could not be happier. I would recommend Wise Guys Concrete Inc., Wayne and his team to everyone.
Thanks for the great work!

New Garage Floor

We hired Wayne based on his HomeStars reviews to repour our garage floor which was cracked and sunken. He removed the old floor, put in a proper base and rebar support and poured a new slab with a perfect slope to fix the drainage issue. A year later he came back just to check that everything was ok. The floor is perfect - still looks brand new. Wayne is very pleasant to deal with, has reasonable pricing, and takes a lot of pride in his work - highly recommended for any concrete work.

Concrete steps and sidewalks

On the recommendation of a neighbour, I went onto the Homestars website looking for a concrete contractor.
I just cannot say enough about Wayne and his company Wise Guys Concrete. After agreeing to a time for an initial quote, Wayne and his assistant showed up promptly at the agreed upon time. They both took time to answer all my questions concerning new concrete steps and sidewalks on both sides of the garage. I was then happy to sign a contract, with a deposit, and set a start date for work to commence. Although there were three different days of setbacks due to intermittent rain, Wayne and his competent crew finished the job to my satisfaction. Wayne also put my mind at ease by stating that if there were any problems in the future he would come back and fix them. There are none so far.
It was a great experience for me to watch Wise Guys Concrete company throughout the job. Everyone answered all my questions and happily agreed to reconfigure the concrete forms to my satisfaction at three different times.
Everything was cleaned up after the job and left neat and tidy.
I highly recommend Wayne and his Wise Guys Concrete company for great work at a reasonable price.

NOTE: Work was done in the fall of 2018 and I am writing this review in the spring of 2019 living with the new steps and sidewalks through the winter. I strongly advise that you take Wayne's suggestion of a brushed concrete finish rather than a smooth finish for steps and walkways. We had no worries at all walking safely on the brushed concrete finish when it was wet from rain or snow.
Thank you Wise Guys Concrete.

front steps and walkway

They did a great job resurfacing and extending our front landing and steps last year. We have invited them back to do our back patio, walkway and driveway edges this year.

Concrete Patio, Entrance, Walkways and Curbs

Thank you for working tirelessly to make our house look great again. They did a fantastic job excavating a previous poorly done concrete job and replacing with with a quality, beautiful looking product. Very happy with the finished work. True to his word, the owner returned without question to fix a couple small issues. Awesome work guys!
