The work involved gutting three floors of the townhouse and installation of a full kitchen, two bathrooms, sub-floor on third floor, all floors throughout, all new doors, trim, lighting, all windows, stairway railings and all hardware. Carmela, Joel, Sebastian and the trades were fantastic to work with! I did get several quotes and I chose Carick because their price was reasonable, but more importantly I chose Carick because of the people -- they are extremely kind, helpful, fair, supportive and problem solvers. The renovation took four months -- was planned for about three, but there were two small delays -- installing the subfloor (was unplanned) and the custom windows took a bit longer due to a colour choice issue. The townhouse looks great and you really can't find kinder or more professional people to work with.

Selecting a contractor to renovate our newly purchased 25 year old condo suite was a daunting task. After reading many online reviews Carick Home Improvements stood out amongst their many Toronto area competitors. In addition to positive reviews on the quality of the work and their reputation for service, Carick embraced condo renovations where so many other contractors were reluctant.

On a visit to the spring Home Show my partner and I spotted a booth for Carick and were able to speak with one of the co-owners, Mr. Geno Scopelleti. We had already spoken with many contractors and designers that day, Geno, however, was really the only person who was friendly and down-to-earth without giving us a "hard sell." Geno also mentioned that he was already working on a unit in our building. This was very important to us because he was familiar with the rules particular to our building as well as the quiet and respectful nature of the residents. Our decision to proceed with Carick
was cemented once we received a follow up telephone call from Geno and in-home visit.

We had a top to bottom renovation. Popcorn ceilings were replaced with smooth, the kitchen and bathroom were completely made over, hardwood flooring and crown mouldings were installed, recessed lighting was installed in the bathroom, living room, bedroom and laundry room, every room was repainted and new interior doors were installed throughout. The original kitchen entrance was closed off and and a new entrance was created giving us a great space with tons of storage compared with the original layout.

We are delighted with the results. Carick really respected our design vision for a traditional, closed concept space. Everything looks and functions beautifully.

The team of tradespeople were very good and Michael, in particular, put his heart into everything. We so enjoyed having Michael in our home for the duration of the project. He is a wonderful and talented man.

Above all, Geno, set the tone for the whole project from the start and was consistent in his commitment and enthusiasm. He understood that this project was not only a big investment for us but also a really exciting time in our lives. He was always accessible and always a gentleman. Any hiccups along the way were dealt with efficiently and in a timely manner.

Carick Home Improvements and Geno Scopelleti get top marks in our books. We are satisfied and grateful for such a positive experience.

Thank you for the nice words. Working with you was a pleasure. Renovating can be very stressful and I believe that our good communication and relationship made this project run smoothly.

I can't begin to thank Joel and his team enough. The kitchen is gorgeous and the entire condo is updated. The design has gone from tired early 90s, to contemporary.

Mario (subcontracted by Joel) delivered a gorgeous kitchen and the design is both beautiful and functional (the storage room alone is something to write home about). We gutted the old kitchen and removed the wall separating it from the living area. The work was done on time and on budget. I am very happy and have recommended him to friends who are also renovating.

I can't wait to get to redo my bathrooms too!

Carick provided a consultation, explained the projected cost/time line, and described each step of the work that our bathroom renovation would require. In addition they made recommendations that aided us in selecting materials (whether it was grout colours or fixtures) that would give us a beautiful end result. We could not have asked for a more professional, courteous and friendly team of people to do the work needed to transform a room that was a disaster area into a gorgeous bathroom. This has given us a lot of pleasure and truly improved our home. We were so pleased with Carick's work that we asked them to do further renovations on our house. A highly recommended company.

I recently had Carrick do some renovations within my townhome to the master bedroom and guest bathroom. This is the second time I have engaged the company for renovations to my home. Once again, I found the work to be on time and on budget with a high degree of attention to detail. The work is always professionally executed and of high-quality. In the past I have recommended the company to my relatives and friends and will continue to do so. Thank you so much Gino for helping me out.

I recently had a major renovation done to my home that included an addition. The project was extensive and there were many hurdles to overcome. Geno and Joel were patient and always available to answer questions. They returned phone calls promptly. The home improvement business is full of shady characters and overpromises. Carick did everything in their power to keep their word and make sure I was happy.

I used Carick Home Improvements for my bathroom renovation and was very impressed. They helped me with every last detail, from sourcing the right fixtures to painting and lighting. Everyone I dealt with was professional as well as pleasant and knowledgeable. The work was done on time and within budget. My family is very happy with the result.

We had a lovely town home in Cabbagetown….EXCEPT for the entrance. The doorway let snow drift in to the house and the "outdoor" slate tile were unsightly……now, exquisitely laid black & white tiles gleam in the foyer and the entrance is sealed from outside…..ABSOLUTE PERFECTION…thank you Carick

Just wanted to thank everyone at Carick for working on my kitchen. I think it looks terrific and I really like it. Everyone at the company were very helpful. A special thanks to Vince and his guys (Paul & Alfredo) who were such great people and made everything so easy for me. Thanks also to Carmela who took all my calls about the elevator bookings!
Thanks Joel for all your help and never making me feel like it was too small a job for your company.
Best regards,
Ann

Dear Mr Scopelleti,
I am writing to tell you how happy we are with the most recent renovation in our house by Carick Home Improvements.
About ten years ago my first experience with Carick was the complete demolition and creation of a new kitchen and addition of a sunroom, carried out by Thomas and his helper. I was so pleased with the results I decided that if ever another renovation was needed ,I would be calling you and requesting the same team.

Ten years later when we decided to convert a bedroom into a new bathroom I needed only one call to you to discover that Thomas and his assistant Nikko would be assigned to the current renovation. The work expanded, as you know, and is now complete. Thanks to you Thomas and Nikko everything was completed in a timely fashion and we are very happy with the results.
I will have no hesitation in recommending Carick to anyone planning a renovation.

Yours Very Truly
