Write A Review Reviews by Stephen in Toronto
Purchased a place with cracked tile work in the shower, thought nothing of it until mold started to appear around the crack. Called them in and quickly discovered that the hairline crack allowed moisture and mold to take over the whole wall behind. They gave a quote, explained the process and executed all in under a week. Very punctual, friendly guys, who do great work and don't make you feel stupid when you ask a lot of questions. That was an added bonus! Highly recommended!2 of 2 people found this review helpful.
A review for Vic Porch
Chris was great, upfront, told me what I could do with my budget and stuck to it. He even indulged me in some of the techniques he was using that would result in a superior product that I've noticed I don't see on some other decks. Him and his crew were in an out in a few days, very courteous, clean, and most importantly did a great job and on budget!0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for PJ's Pet Centres
The location is in the city which is nice, and the prices are quite comparable to the other shops. However, this is one of the smallest pet stores I have ever been to and the staff doesn't seem to know a whole lot. Unless you're looking for generic big-brand pet food and don't have a lot of questions, this is your place. However, we're spoiled for choice in Toronto so I would probably just check elsewhere.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Big Al's Aquarium Services
The sales staff are very knowledgable about their products, and the one girl that went over the setup even knew about common issues with the pumps and filters I was looking at (later verified with a google search). The prices were a little higher then Petsmart I later noticed, but I would happily pay a little extra knowing how knowledgable they were.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Lido Pools & Aquatic Services
Josh installed my pears ago and it's held up extremely well, looks about the same as when it was installed. He was the most expensive quote I took but, I felt he was honest and gave the quote straight up and had some pretty happy references. He ended up coming in under budget, ahead of schedule and followed up with me at the end of the first season to see how well we did. Great experience and I definitely recommend him whenever people mention installing a pool.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Alarmforce
Great system, alarm was surprisingly fast install. The installer was nice, courteous and most importantly, showed up on time and did a good job. Used the existing wiring in the wall which was nice. Alarm is really cool, have accidentally tripped it and the live person comes on!0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for SoHo Art & Custom Framing
This place is by my house so I thought I would give it a try. Good quality framing and it was considerably less then most other custom framing places. I recently had an equally sized piece framed in a similar frame for more then double this cost. Granted, there is some give in quality–most frames are MDF. But the turn-around time and look for value was impressive. I also noticed the last time I was here that this is the only place in the city that sells Ork typography city maps. (a hip screen printed typography map from Chicago). It's almost twice the price of ordering directly from them though. Side note: the address listed on homestars is incorrect. It's actually located on Roncesvalles, not Queen West.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Artworld Of Sherway
Used the custom framing services here, but they do host a collection of local paintings for sale. Some of them good, some not so much. Donna (maybe the owner?) is very helpful and they definitely know what they're doing. A little pricey, but framing fine art is a tricky thing where you don't REALLY want to take any chances. They have an excellent selection of frames and matts, and the salesperson spent a seemingly ridiculous amount of time with me picking out the perfect, acid-free, fine-toothed, semi-matte, mat to go inside of a gorgeous mahogany frame. Only complaint would be I have found places that are considerably cheaper that provide equally exquisite work, but they aren't quite as polished in their demeanour.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Ikea - Etobicoke
It's remarkable how fast the kitchen specialists workout a new kitchen for you. Having got some quotes from some more local kitchen renovators, I knew exactly what to bring in. Their quote was almost $20k less then one contractor including install, so I went what the hell. The kitchen specialist used our floor plan and pictures to make a model, designed exactly how we wanted it in less then 3 hours. Three weeks later I was sitting in my new kitchen. Quick, efficient, friendly to sum it up. Only complaint would be laminate cabinets feel a little cheap, but there's not other option if you want a clean, and modern look. Other then that, quality!0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Queen West Antique Centre
Located in the Queen West Antique ghetto on the west end, this place is well merchandised in a huge space. Makes a huge difference since I find it hard to shop in those crammed little stores where you really need to dig for a find. Only high quality, well preserved pieces are for sale here with a strong focus on the 50-60s. Picked up some vintage high school lockers that I use for storage, that I absolutely heart. Sales people are also knowledgable about all of the pieces and were very upfront about any wear and tear on the vintage pieces. Love it here, but prices are a little on the higher end.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
