A Wee Little Bit About Us
During an era when basements were used for coal, food storage and the occasional hogmánay we were one of the first Toronto contractors to realize the benefits of a fully dry, fully usable basement way back in the early 1970’s.
1970 – 1975
“As dearcáin bheaga a fhásann na crainn is airde – mighty oaks from little acorns grow”. John MacRae begins specializing in below-grade concrete waterproofing projects with his father.
1975 – 1985
John and Noreen MacRae welcome three children into the world, and although times were tough in the early years they always found a way to make ends meet. GJ MacRae slowly begins to gain traction.
1985 – 1995
The kids become involved on the weekends helping Dad clean up job sites while they study and nibble on timbits. Gavin shows a keen interest in masonry and the seed continues to grow.
1995 – 2000
GJ MacRae becomes a full service foundation repair company specializing in basement waterproofing, structural foundation repairs and underpinning. The kids work with the crews during the summer and the collective interest continues to expand.
2000 – 2005
More specialized projects become attractive as our expertise and experience grows. Platon replaces tintest, weeping tile detail changes within the OBC, John transitions to sales and Gavin starts his first crew.
2005 – Present
45 years pass since the seed was planted and the mighty oak still grows! GJ MacRae continues to set the bar in all phases of below grade waterproofing, structural foundation repair, underpinning and heritage foundation restoration.
