Beware What you Say
All incoming voice communication with him is recorded because he tries to get a yes answer from you for a bigger price. He is always vague on what the warranty is. If he believes his work is still under warranty he will not schedule you or return calls. Everything he does is overpriced by industry standards...a Thief? I had a triple sump pump installed, after 2 years the main pump failed, after many phone calls to him and the USA head office he agreed to replace it. a year later that same pump failed again, I had a licensed plumber inspect his work...it was not legal. The failed pump he installed, well turns out he didn't install a new pump but an old corroded pump. This guy is very dishonest. he likes to promote himself as a Church goer who helps the community. Stay away from him.

Reason of review
Resolved: McInroy Basement Systems
On February 2014, I got the estimate for my basement waterproof job in my basement by Tim McInroy, Basement Systems. I have got his brochure with pictures of how the system looks like. I agreed on a proposal to install waterproof system according to this brochure. Before starting work Tim McInroy requested first payment of 35% ammount. The cheque was writing to him on first working day. On first working day I requested references regarding this installation, but never got it then. My request has been ignored. For this first week of company work I did pay 70% of total contract by his request. However, for this short period of their work in my basement I have got two serious damages made by McInroy Basement Systems (storm sever system damage and main water supply line damage), and I realised that this company is not much trained and not much professional. I have got the incorrect workers in my basement. When I got all problems made by Tim McInroy's company in my basement I decided to stop their job in my house and terminate the contract. I sent registered letter and it is came back to me. Then I sent Termination Notice to Tim McInroy's company and his Head Office in US by email. Also, I opened complain case in Better Business Bureau (BBB) in Ottawa. BBB tried several times communicate with Tim McInroy's company, but they also did not received a response from Tim McInroy's company. So, the bottom line is that I terminated the contract by the following reasons: 1. A lot of problems and damage McInroy's company did in my basement. 2. The installation of the sewage ejector pump is not complete and it has not been installed in a professional manner. 3. The water guard pipes (on basement perimeter) is not same (and more chipper) as shows on the contract brochure. 4. The project completed by 30% 5. The water guard pipes are installed on high level that impossible to soak underground water. 6. All Ontario Home Building Codes are broken through incorrect installation and incorrect design waterproof system: 6.1 - Concrete must be at least 4 inches depth, the company installed only 2 inches concrete depth. 6.2 - The company used "Sand Mix" instead of real Concrete mix. 6.3 - The system designed to allow gas Radon comes through to the basement and home.
