A review for Waltopine Furniture
We brought our 1960s teak dining room table with leaf extension for refinishing to Walter at Waltopine Furniture. The table was in a bit of rough shape and needed some TLC. Walter did a fabulous job refinishing the table. It looks beautiful. We are very pleased with the work that Walter did, which was also reasonably priced. We highly recommend Waltopine Furniture.1 of 1 people found this review helpful.
A review for Diana Braun-Woodbury
We have gone to see Diana at Peter's Paints several times over the years for help in picking paint colours for our kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and office. Diana has never steered us wrong. The colors that she has helped us pick have been absolutely perfect. This past summer we did a complete reno of the ourside of our house. We did a stucco exterior and we were really concerned about finding the right colour. We actually had a designer who is highly rated on Homestars work with us on picking the colour of the stucco. We told her we did not want beige. Despite our request she still tried to convince us to go with a colour that was in the beige family. Though she was very nice and had some good ideas about things, we did not feel satisfied with the stucco colour she selected and did not feel she was listening to us. Then it dawned on us...Diana! Why did we not go to her in the first place? We contacted Peter's Paints and got her contact information and Diana came on site and worked with us in picking the absolutely perfect stucco colour. It is the perfect blue/gray, in keeping with the historical essence of our home, while still having an urban appeal. She got it spot on. She also helped us pick the colour of the window trim, soffit and fascia, eavestrough and roof. Our house looks fantastic and we get a lot of people stopping and admiring it. We had a front and back porch done and for the last few weeks we were struggling with picking the stain colour. We should have called Diana before we stained a small section and realized our mistake. But we did call her and she came to see us with yet again some fabulous ideas for staining the front and back porch. She is so very gifted at what she does, is reasonably priced and is a super nice, down to earth person. We highly recommend DIana. You will not be disappointed in hiring her.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Master Deck and Contracting
Ken and his crew did a fantastic job building our front porch and back deck. The materials used were Azeck and cedar and the porch and deck look fabulous. It did end up costing more than we were originally quoted because we did make some modifications along the way. In hindsight we should have asked for the cost of things along the way as we were surprised at how much we added on. Lesson learned! But it was all worth it as they did a wonderful job. We highly recommend Master Deck.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Magic Windows
We had all the windows in our house replaced by Magic Windows. We almost went with Brock windows but decided on Magic Windows because of the innovative design of their windows. These are fantastic windows. They are worth the bit of extra money they cost. The window frames are nice and slim, they open beautifully without a crank, the retractable screens are so convenient and the retractable sun blinds are amazing. Mike did a fantastic job installing the windows. The only glitch we had was prior to installation there was a bit of a mixup regarding the size of the window jam and there was a week delay that inconvenienced our stucco installer. But it did get resolved. We are rating the windows and the installation of the windows a perfect 10. We could not be happier with the windows.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Superior Steel Roofing Systems
We interviewed numerous conventional asphalt roofing companies, and were consistently disappointed in the product, the customer service and the information they gave. Our own independent research helped us to realize a metal roof was worth upgrading to. It is environmentally friendly and we will never have to do our roof again. We interviewed the industry leader in aluminum metal roofing and only to discover that there were flaws in their design, they used 31 guage aluminum when a pop can only uses 33, and the cost was outrageous. This lead us to focus on steel roofing companies and not all are created equal. We interviewed several steel roofing companies and realized that Superior Steel Roofing was the best due to their design, and their 26 guage steel that uses a specialized membrane coating process. It has a lifetime warranty and surprisingly was very reasonable in price. It looks really beautiful. We get a lot of compliments about our roof. People ask us if it is noisy when it rains, but it really is not at all. Gary, our salesman was great, Emma in the office was always kind and helpful and the crew was very professional, came on time and went above and beyond to do a great job. We highly recommend Superior Steel. They are out in Guelph but do work in Toronto. You will not be disappointed in getting a roof through them.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Toprock Wall Systems Ltd.
We interviewed several stucco contractors for the stuccoing/EIFS of our entire house. This was a big job as the old and deteriorating stucco had to be removed. Once we met Cuma, we knew that we wanted to hire Toprock. During our first meeting with Cuma, he was very professional, thorough, explained everything in great detail and answered the many questions we had. We felt very confident in hiring him. Cuma’s crew was highly skilled and hard working. Their workmanship was excellent. During the process, Cuma was always available to answer our questions and problem solve when any issues arose. For example, we had an issue with our window company and had a meeting set in the late evening with the window installer to work through the problems with the installation. Cuma did not need to do so, but he came to the meeting in the late evening (10:00pm) to ensure that his stucco work would not be compromised in any way by the problem with the window installation. Cuma and his team did not hesitate like several other companies when they learned of our east facing elevation, which was only 23.5" inches away from our neighbours wall! Cuma had 18" inch scaffolding which he carefully installed and had a full crew applying all layers of EIFS on what seemed like a near impossible area. Other crews told us they would not even attempt that. Cuma consistently went above and beyond throughout the entire stucco installation process. Toprock has an excellent relationship with Durex/DuraBond, whose representatives came out to ensure everything was up to code (which it was). Toprock uses Quantum channeled insulation, which not all companies use in order to cut corners. We could not be happier with the work that was done. Our house looks really really beautiful! We highly recommend Cuma and Toprock. You will not be disappointed in hiring them.

A review for Java Electric Ltd.
Recently, my wife and I hired Pierre from Java Electric to install some pot lights and electrical outlets in the basement of our home. Being an older home it presented some challenges, but Pierre and his understudy/assistant Keith were fantastic. They worked quickly, efficiently and cleaned up the area thoroughly when they were done. The work Pierre did was excellent. in fact Pierre went above and beyond what we asked him to do. Not only is he an excellent electrician and very professional, he is also a genuinely sincere and great guy. We will definitely be using Pierre again and we would recommend him in a heartbeat.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
