"We planned an extensive home renovation which encompassed the entire upper two floors. Jesse and Dan were very attentive to ensuring the finished product met our standards and expectations. They demonstrated great flexibility during uncertain times as our renovation took place during the pandemic and were quick to respond to any issues or problems. We are so happy with the finished product and would definitely enlist the services of the Jedan brothers in the future."

"Renovating my kitchen was a smooth and easy process when I worked with Rammik. They were able to support me through the design and construction phases, answering any questions I had, no matter how small. They considered all aspects of my home and project hopes to help me achieve a kitchen that went above my expectations. Even though my kitchen has a small footprint, it has all the functionality and storage that I was hoping for and it looks wonderful. I look forward to working with them again on my next project."

"I know we said it, but we do want you to know how much we like the addition and all of the work Brodco has done on our house over the years. It has made our house very special to live in. The projects were complex and structural in a historic house, and I know that at least 90% of the planning and complexities that make them all work are forever hidden from view. So again, thanks for treating it like it was your own house. We appreciate it."

"Beautiful, custom designs. We have used Charlene and her team for years both for our commercial and residential designs. Always A+ next level outcomes. Fresco Interiors not only meets our expectations but far surpasses them. In late 2021 the group did a redesign "reveal" of our main floor living space . It was like walking into a show home, but it was our home! Just in time for the holidays too, thank you!"

"Rusch completed a full renovation on our apartment and we are very happy with the finished product, making it the home we had envisioned. Appreciating that apartment renovations can be challenging when it comes to access we found Rusch managed the project efficiently, honestly, on time and within budget. The Rusch team was available to answer questions or offer suggestions on challenges. Thank you so much Phillip, Oliver and Ann."

Muys Construction did a 600 sq ft addition and complete remodel to our existing home. Jerry and his team were very professional, paid attention to detail, and the quality of their work was exceptional. They took pride in their work and it showed. Jerry addressed all questions and concerns in a timely manner and was always accessible. The worksite was left extremely clean and organized at the end of each day. We would highly recommend Muys Construction for jobs both big and small and would not hesitate to use them again."

“My husband and I embarked on a significant renovation of our 1950's bungalow in wildwood. We loved the lot, land and location for 20 years and we finally decided to take the plunge. Renova's project management team (first Tom and then Rob) were great communicators, and project managers. Kal, the interior designer, helped us with our design choices, from cabinets, plumbing fixtures, tile, flooring etc.
The trades were excellent. Every last one were professional and extremely talented. If there were any issues, and there are with any large or small scale reno, they were rectified to our satisfaction. Given the supply chain issues, covid delays, city permitting delays, and weather delays we were really only delayed by a couple of weeks. I really think that speaks to Renova's relationships with their trades and suppliers.
The experience was very good and we are so happy with the end result. We are in a well functioning, beautiful home. I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks Renova team! I would recommend them to anyone.”

"We built our home with Lupi Homes back in 1995 and thoroughly enjoyed 22 years of first class craftsmanship. In 2017 we decided to renovate our home and once again Lupi provided 1st class service and top-quality craftsmanship. Their commitment and pride in top quality construction is what really sets them apart. The owners were involved at every stage of the project and were on the job site each and every day ensuring Lupi standards in a timely manner. I highly recommend Lupi homes for your new home or renovation project."

"What words could truly describe our experience with Stef and Jacquie?
Trustworthy, knowledgeable, respectful are just a few that immediately come to mind. From the start of the project there was a smooth process of feedback, explanation and so much concern and care to each step of the new kitchen. We felt heard, we felt that we were involved in creating what is my dream kitchen! Stef and his knowledge with a high level of craftsmanship demanded the same from all services needed for such a job.
Jacquie and her constant updates and her amazing and stylish eye for beautiful details. She helped me make all those difficult choices, everything from lighting, to flooring to tile. She was there every step of the way. Jacquie organized all of the trades and gave us a timeline and followed through!
Our kitchen is the heart of our home and it feels great to be there every day. The space inspires me to continue to cook for my family and friends. This is the best entertaining space for our extended family and our friends!
It was an amazing experience overall! Would not do another renovation project without them! They take the stress out of a major renovation! Not only do we have a kitchen of magazine quality and beauty, we made friends with beautiful people.
Thank you for everything!!"

"My wife and I hired Rechsteiner Construction to do a full interior renovation of a 30 year old house we recently purchased. Philip worked with us through the entire renovation process from the consultation and budget phase, design and permit phase, and construction phase. Philip was very transparent and helpful throughout the renovation, providing us with multiple quotes when we requested them, explaining all quotes and options whenever we had questions, and giving insightful recommendations on many different aspects of our renovation. All of the sub trades were very high quality and it shows in the overall finish of our home.
Our renovation was on schedule, and we did not have any unexpected large expenses. We are very happy with our new home, and have recommended Rechsteiner Construction to all of our friends and family who are also looking to do a renovation. If you're looking for an honest, hard working contractor with excellent communication skills then we strongly recommend Philip and Rechsteiner Construction."

"Within minutes of meeting Wes I knew my search for the right contractor was over. His calm and friendly disposition kept me at ease while his unwavering professionalism provided me the confidence to know my project was in the best hands. His attention to detail, relentless work ethic and swift problem solving skills are just a few of the amazing qualities he possesses that makes him stand out from the rest. Every time I enter my house I’m reminded of how much effort was put into making my dreams a reality and I could not be more thankful."

"In late 2019 we initiated a major addition to our 1830's stone home just outside of Perth. We engaged Hay Design for the design and chose The Lanark Design/Build Group among 3 considered builders. Construction in the 2nd half of 2020 was challenging, as was the case with all projects in that period, but we kept our eye on the prize and by early 2021 we had a completed home that we were thrilled with. We have engaged many builders over the years on cottage and home projects and Mark and his team showed a level of attention to detail in finishes and in building science that I haven't seen before. Many visitors have marveled at the way old and new are combined in both the design and in construction details.”

"It is a great pleasure to recommend our Renovator, RND Construction. We first got to know our future renovation team at a home tour event in 2019. Shortly after that we asked for a quote for our planned renovation. From the beginning we were impressed by the professionalism of the team.
They provided us a detailed quote, with several options, in a timely manner. This experience contrasted with our dealings with other renovation companies, who provided approximate estimates or didn't follow-up on our enquiries. Initially, we planned a large renovation to take place in 2020, however COVID-19 came along and changed our plans. We split the renovation into two, doing a smaller amount of work in 2020 and the larger portion of the work in 2021-2022. RND Construction was very flexible about this change and assured us that they could work within our schedule.
The work in 2020 was completed on-time and to a high standard of quality. We started planning and designing the kitchen renovation with the team in early 2021. They provided us with an impressive plan based on our concept, taking our needs and preferences into consideration. For instance, we had a Black Walnut tree blow down in our yard during the tornado of 2018. We had kept the wood planks and the renovator connected us with a kitchen company that was willing to add some live-edge details into our kitchen using the wood from our tree. It looks amazing and was a great way to use the beautiful wood.
One of the most reassuring things about working with RND Construction was the frequent communication. The team kept us in the loop as to what was happening and followed-up on our questions promptly. As with any construction project problems arose, but the proactive communication and response on the part of the renovator kept things progressing. There were some delays in materials and obtaining trades people, due to COVID-19, however we always felt like RND Construction was on our side and working to speed things up.
Another positive aspect of the project was the ability of RND Construction to find wellqualified, professional staff and trades people to do the work required. The designer, site manager, staff and contractors that worked on site were extremely professional and helpful. We interacted with everyone who came to our house and they were competent, friendly, and we also had a few laughs, which was a bonus! At one stage there was a tiling emergency and the tiler dropped everything and came to check out the damage for us immediately. This was above and beyond I
Overall, working with RND Construction was a great experience and the end result is a wonderful renovated home with room for family life, including our dog, who loved having the renovation team around! We heartily recommend RND and we look forward to the opportunity to work with them again."

“I found Novak Contracting online when I did a search for ‘best contractor’. I scrolled through the list and opened the one that had a photo of a kitchen just like the one I wanted. Bright, fresh, and new. I called Reilly and now, a few years later, after living for some time in my beautifully renovated home, I am very glad that I did. Reilly took full control of the project, which is what you want your contractor to do, but final decisions were always mine and he was always mindful of my input and questions. He always seemed to be in my corner.
He made some great suggestions that I am so glad I agreed to. For example, he suggested opening a wall at the back of our closet to transform a walk in closet into a spacious combo laundry room/walk through closet with a nice bright window for natural light. It is actually one of my favourite places in the home. Every day when I walk through my new home, everything I look at makes me smile. The beautiful tile, the beautiful floor, the warm glowing fireplace, the quality workmanship, just everything. We are very happy in our home and have received so many compliments. Thanks Reilly.”

“This is not the first renovation we have trusted Rick and his team with. As usual, it was much more about the consultation, design and planning than just providing a quote. We usually ‘know’ exactly what we want, then we meet with Rick and Dayna, after which we ‘think’ we know what we want, until we meet a second time or in some cases a third time. As much as possible, all through the project there is flexibility and suggestions on design, layout, colors and just the project as a whole. The subtrades and vendors that Rick’s team relies on or suggests we use are always top caliber as well, the crews are always respectful of our home and schedules and maintain a safe clean workspace at the end of each day. The finished product speaks for itself, each and every time.
Over the last 10 years we have renovated our basement family room as well as our kitchen and upstairs living room with Rick and his team. When the time comes for our next project, we know who we’ll call. I would recommend Rick, Dayna, and their team to anyone looking for a high quality, professional renovation that is built on consultation, design and ensuring a top shelf finished project.”
