Brian and his team are exceptional renovation and installation specialists. We contracted them for a full and extensive kitchen, bathroom, and dining room renovation, along with full removal and installation of a new 1st floor tile floor.
We were aware that there are contractors out there who will cut corners, who will quote one price, and surprise you with another midway, who will turn your home reno dreams into nightmares. None of this takes place when you've got Brian's guys working on your project. We were fortunate tto have Warren and Dave assigned to us for the bulk of the work, and these guys were astonishing in the level of commitment and care they took on the project. They were thorough with the demolition, did what needed to be done to bring the house up to standard, worked above and beyond when presented with some unexpected structural and layout challenges, and then built everything back up to an exacting and professional standard. Floors, walls, fixtures, electrical, plumbing, and trim: all 100% top end work that clearly shows years of skill and knowledge. The project called for the installation of heated floors, and Brian brought in his own people to make sure the plumbing and heating systems could accommodate. The kitchen installation threw a number of challenges at the guys - nothing fazed them. Brian does NOT sub -contract: these are HIS guys, and theyve worked with him for years, decades even. THAT is something you want to explore with your contractor - how long has the crew been with the company? Ask too about your contractor's certifications - Brian's got a pile of letters after his name, all legitimate, all indicative of years of experience, study, and certification. He can accommodate client requests to the letter, and will tell you straight up whether your ideas make sense, or will be folly - he's not going to go ahead with something if he knows its going to result in problems later, or cost you far more than your budget, or is just plain stupid: he gets to know you, and keeps you focused on the core of your project. You can source your own materials, or let Brian do it; he'll take care of the kitchen , or you can Ikea it like we did - and the guys installed a kitchen that absolutely blew us away - better than we'd even expected.
At the end of the day, it was pricey, but here's the thing: it was 100% worth it - we had ZERO contractor issues, ZERO sleepless nights worrying about craftsmanship or construction issues, ZERO issues with the project that weren't sorted or resolved right away.
I cannot thank Brian, Warren, Dave, Chris, Eric, Ian, Simon, and the rest of the crew for the unbelievable and beautiful work they did in transforming our house into a home, and, you know what, transforming our life.
These guys are good. Get in line. (Because we've got another bathroom for them to to do too next year! )
