A review for Templar Mould / Asbestos Analysis and Removal
I needed to take down the ceiling in my basement to run electrical. When I opened up the ceiling I saw some strange insulation that worried me. I phoned Rob, and he came over promptly, took some samples, and sent them off to the lab. When the lab had some technical issues which delayed the analysis, Rob was really great about communicating with us and keeping us in the loop. Thankfully everything was negative, but I would not hesitate to call Rob again if needed.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for M3 Design Group
Mike was a pleasure to deal with in all aspects of this process. I phoned Mike the morning of a day I had off work, and he came out a few hours later. We have old house and were worried that the frame for the shutters would cover up or ruin the look of the original window trim. Mike explained exactly where the shutters would be seated, what the frame would look like once installed, and assured me that they would add to the look of the trim. He gave me a quote on the spot, and I phoned him back that night to give him the go ahead! He installed the shutters 8 days later! Other places wanted 2-3 months before they could install! With regard to the window trim, he was definitely right. The shutters don't cover anything, and they really enhance the look of the window. Overall, Mike was easy to deal with, service was extremely fast, the price was right, and most importantly, the shutters look AMAZING!0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for A-1 Quality Chimney (1986) Ltd
We needed a new chimney liner for a gas furnace and hot water tank. Bob came out the same day I called him and gave a competitive quote. Rick came and did the installation the next day. It was a lot of work to remove the old liner since it was all corroded and in pieces, but Rick worked diligently and efficiently. Excellent service! I'm very happy with the work!
Were very happy to take good care of you Mike. I'll make sure to let Rick know how satisfied you are with his work.
A review for Red Robin Masonry
Red Robin was a pleasure to work with. Mike came out promptly to give us a quote and was very good about going over all the potential masonry work on our house and letting us know if it was "must do", "nice to do", or "unnecessary". We ended up doing a chimney rebuild and replacing about 30 bricks. His quote was detailed and the price was fair. They were also very good about communication, and Dave was great to work with to set everything up. The work was quick, clean, professional, and very high quality. Highly recommended.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Java Electric Ltd.
We recently bought an 85 year old house, so as you can imagine, there was a lot of electrical work to be done. The main job was removal of knob and tube wiring which spanned most of the house. I got quotes from about five electricians which I found through recommendations from co-workers, recommendations from our realtor, ads in the paper, online, etc. Right from the beginning, Java Electric was by far the best service. They returned my call promptly and set up an appointment for a quote. Antonio and Manuel came by the house, on time, and provided a very thorough inspection of the situation and a detailed explanation of what had to be done and why. Antonio informed provided me with a written quote the next day, but he was able to provide me a rough verbal estimate before he left and even told me exactly how he calculates costs. His quote was very fair and competitive. After our first meeting with Antonio and Manuel, there was absolutely no question about who to hire, and we phoned Java Electric to set a date to start the work. When we had to delay work because of other renovations going on, Java Electric was extremely accommodating, and was able to reschedule. Since we had to delay past the deadline our insurance had given us to upgrade the wiring, Antonio gladly provided an official letter to our insurance stating that they were hired to remove the knob and tube wiring and would start work as soon as possible. In the end, we ended up commissioning Antonio to do quite a bit of electrical work, including: -Full removal of knob and tube wiring throughout the house (basement, main floor, upper floor – lights and receptacles) -Installation of a brand new Siemens panel -Amalgamation of lights onto one switch -Running new circuits to the kitchen for more power -Installation of two new outdoor GFCI receptacles -Installation of four new indoor receptacles -Installation of two new three-way switches to control basement lights from the main floor -Removal of bed room pot lights and installation of a center fixture for a ceiling fan The actual work done by Antonio and Manuel was absolutely impeccable. His wiring is extremely neat and logical. I can’t emphasize enough that when it comes to running new circuits, Antonio spends his time finding clever routes and fishing the lines rather than making holes in the walls/ceilings. It is absolutely amazing that they pretty much re-wired my entire house with such few holes. On top of that, they patch up the few holes they do need to make! This is a huge bonus! Lastly, they are extremely clean. They lay drop cloths everywhere they work and thoroughly clean up all the areas they work in on a daily basis. I am not exaggerating when I say my house was cleaner each day after Antonio left than before he came. Contrast this with my neighbour who hired a shoty electrician and had to move out of their house during the knob and tube removal since their electrician made so much dust. They were also amazing in terms of keeping me in the loop. Everyday Antonio would tell me what he planned to get done that day, why it needed to be done that way, and what to expect. Every evening he would phone me to review what was done and what time he would start the next day. On top of everything else, Antonio and Manuel are just genuinely nice guys – the type of guys you don’t mind having in your house. Very, very, very, very highly recommended!0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
