We bought our home in the upper beaches area back in 2016. Ever since we moved in we knew we wanted to redo the kitchen, it was a mess, it just took so long to finally decide to do it as it is such a huge investment. For our dream kitchen to come to life, we needed a lot of renovations:
- Structural changes to the wall in the dining room and the load bearing wall that ran through the kitchen. Mark and his team put in the extra work to ensure the structure and foundation was to code and safe. The beam that replaced the load bearing wall was supported on the main floor as well as in the basement with appropriately placed support posts.
- Chris spent a lot of time ensuring that our warped floor was level before we even considered flooring and cabinets - something other contractors have overlooked in the past.
- In addition to the structure changes, the Ashton team also tackled: flooring, plumbing, electrical, drywall, hvac, installation of a new oven hood (finally!), dishwasher, a brand new sink and most importantly - our new cabinets. The trim work was impeccable and the painting was performed with precision.
- The cabinets are the staple piece of our new kitchen. They are made of plywood with high quality hardware. Not only are they robust, but also look very sleek.
Most importantly, Mark, Chris and the rest of the Ashton team were an absolute pleasure to work with. Also to mention, our first baby was on the way so it was stressful having a house under construction. Mark is very trustworthy and gives you the sense that you are in good hands. He explains the process well, keeps you informed on progress and was always available when we needed him most! Chris is a fantastic general contractor - he does great work. He also makes you feel comfortable and that you are in good hands - this is especially important because kitchen renovations can be stressful.
We would highly recommend Ashton Renovations to anyone that wants a fantastic kitchen with intelligent design and a great customer experience.
Thank you Mark, Chris and team for everything you guys did for us!
