Complete 1st and 2nd Floor Reno

If you think you're getting a different kind of contractor or the quality and experience of the company's HGTV star when you hire BQC, you're not. BQC is just like everyone else in the industry: they over-promise and under-deliver. You're told during the sales process that they use a cloud-based software program to manage the project timeline and budget, but no one in the company appears to know how to use it properly, so after 2 months, the information shown is useless and out-of-date. We were also told that BQC 'owns' a cabinetry company, called Baeumler Custom Cabinetry (BCC). This is not true. BCC is a cabinetry design service only; all cabinetry is manufactured by a third party in Quebec, which created a number of problems throughout the project.

Where BQC really fails to deliver is in the selection and management of their trades. They claim to only use highly skilled, "Baeumler approved" trades, but several of the trades they used delivered sub-standard work. Much of our custom millwork is cracking and pulling away from the walls (which they claim is a humidity issue, not an installation issue) and the final bill for electrical work was more than twice the original quote (despite zero increases in scope).

The actual project timeline was 6.5 months, vs the original quote of 4.5 months. During the two month delay, there were stretches of several days (in a couple of cases more than a week) where there were no trades on site and no work performed. We're now more than 2 months past the date when we moved back in and we're still dealing with repair issues.

On the plus side, we found most of BQC's on-site personnel to be very pleasant and they generally want to do a good job. This statement does not extend to the company's senior management. The senior partner on our project never once called to ask how the project was going and never visited the site to assess the status of the project or quality of the work. The only times he came on-site were when we demanded a meeting to address concerns over the budget and/or timeline.

At the end of the day, I expected a company bearing the Bauemler name to be as capable and skilled as the personality we see on TV. Unfortunately this is not the case and I would never recommend them.

Basement Finish

Working with Baeumler Quality Construction was the smartest idea my husband and I could have ever come up with when we finally decided to finish our basement. We looked around for a long while for a contracting company to employ. Most didn't even bother returning our phone call and those who did, didn't seem to care. BQC on the other hand, responded very promptly and showed a friendly and genuine interest in working together on our project. We had a bad experience with our past renovation, so were wary of who would work to the standards we were looking for. However, after our first meeting with Paul, we were confident in starting our project with him. During the construction, everything went smoothly. Barry was always available to answer my emails or phone calls and the tradesmen working in my house were always polite, friendly and very tidy! The entire process from beginning to end was simply enjoyable. I'm almost sad it's over; almost! The finished product is incredible, the workmanship and attention to detail superb and the functionality is wonderful. We would highly recommend Baeumler Quality Construction for any renovation project. Suzanne and Ali Jahed

Large Ensuite complete reno

This was the most pleasant experience I've ever had with regards to work performed in my home. Project was finished on time and within estimated cost in spite of a number of 'surprises' once the room was gutted. Staff was polite and very professional. Would hire this group again in a heartbeat.

Exterior & Interior Renovations

We recently bought an older home in the Mimico area of Toronto. We needed the second story renovated ~ skylights/suntunnels, floor levelled, new hardwood floors, new tiles in bathroom, new drywall, new roof, new doors/frames/baseboard/quarter-round installed etc. Bauemler Team was friendly, conscientious, on time and professional! Work quality is exceptional. After hearing a number of renovation/contractor horror stories from friends, we realize how lucky we were to work with the Bauemler Team. We have recommended the Baeumler Team to friends and family. Not surprising that the Home and Garden network gave them their own show - Do It Yourself Disasters You won't be disapointed. They do it right!

front porch

This was the best contractor experience ever! Work started on time, finished early. The guys were incredibly considerate never blocked driveways, took off their shoes inside, etc. The work was great, and when it didn't exactly match what we wanted, they did it over with no complaint.
