Basement Renovation

Both my husband and I are completely happy and satisfied with the work done by John and his team at Falcon Contracting with our basement renovation.

John was also very knowledgeable, provided us with many good suggestions, was very accessible and didn't hesitate to answer all our questions during the entire process. Thank you for job well done.

Leaking basement

We discovered we had a leak in our basement most likely due to a foundation crack. After hearing differing opinions and wide ranging quotes from several foundation guys, I called John at Falcon and he came in right away to take a look. He was great! He gave me solid advice on how to deal with the situation in a straightforward way that took into account the fact that we have tenants in the basement. He also put me in touch with his contacts for foundation and flooring work so we can get the apartment fixed as soon as possible. Not only that but he followed up another time to come look at the basement again to help identify where the water was coming from and is helping me decide what the right approach for the foundation work should be.

Kitchen renovation experience

Falcon Contracting deserves a big thank you. We are very pleased to be a new addition to their long list of happy clients.

John and the team covered all the bases: efficient, honest, polite, tidy, detailed, precise, professional, experienced, competent. They provided great value for their service and throughout the kitchen reno we felt a great deal of confidence that the work was in the right hands. Our 3rd-party countertop guys actually mentioned how perfect the cabinet leveling was when installing the counter. These are the guys you want.

John & Co, thank you. We hope to work with you again soon.

Bathroom renovation x 2, addition + more

John and his team have done two big jobs in my 100 year old home over the past 6 years and we are looking forward to starting round 3 this summer. We have been consistently impressed with the professionalism and skill of everyone associated with Falcon.

Pre-planning is always thorough and John is very easy to collaborate with. My old home throws a lot of curveballs but John has a sixth sense for predicting most of these and deals efficiently with anything unexpected.

Everyone from Falcon has been very professional

Kitchen Reno

We cannot say enough about John at Falcon Contracting. We were overwhelmed with our first major home Reno and John quickly put our minds at ease. He solved a mini-crises with our kitchen cabinets when Ikea led us astray and as a result we have 2 additional cabinets in a Kitchen the size of a stamp! We can't recommend Falcon Contracting enough!

Outstanding Renovation experience

John and his team at Falcon Contracting have completed several projects for me from a major renovation including basement underpinning, a custom deck and shed build, assorted general contracting, repair and painting, etc.
In all cases the work itself has been excellent and the experience dealing with the company even better. The quotations were clear and detailed, the pricing very competitive, timetables and deadlines met and the level of communication throughout was excellent. John is flexible, responsive and always willing to help with suggestions and alternatives. I can't imagine having been in better hands!

Basement renovation

We are so pleased to be able to write this review for Falcon Contracting! We had hired Falcon Contracting a few years ago for an extensive renovation on our house, turning the first floor into an open concept space and we haven’t regretted it for a moment. In fact, when it was time to re-do our basement, we didn’t think twice about contacting John again. We wanted to be sure we would have an equally positive experience.

Our basement was in dire need of a facelift – it was time to add a second washroom, remove the chipboard that had been used as paneling and to restructure the rooms to make better use of the space. We wanted:

1. lots of storage space

2. a TV area and space for our grandkids to play

3. a 3 piece washroom

4. a laundry room

5. a furnace room with space for many tools

Before we started and after a couple of conversations, John provided us with a quote. He also reminded us that a renovation of this type might uncover unexpected issues we would have to deal with – like water penetration or old pipes – so that we were prepared. Forewarned is forearmed, right? We appreciated John raising the possibilities, even though only minor problems emerged. We decided that we should have a back-flow prevention valve and a sump pump installed. We didn’t know that the city provides rebates for homeowners who have these devices installed – but John did! He advised us well.

I could go on for pages about how pleased we are with the outcome. Previously, the basement was little more than fancy storage – and no one in the family really wanted to spend time down there. That has all changed, thanks to the beautiful job that John did. It is warm, dry, and beautiful and we got 110% of what we wanted, on time and within budget.

The quality and craftsmanship of the work done is superb! John communicated exceptionally well with us, and kept us up to date on the progress, changes that were required, and any delays he encountered. The quality of the sub-trades he hires is second to none. The electrician, plumbers, tile setters and HVAC people worked efficiently, quickly and expertly. We highly recommend John to anyone looking for high quality work, and an honest, professional, trustworthy contractor.

2 Storey Addition and Main House Renovation

I hired Falcon Contracting on a recommendation from my sister-in-law. The contract was to add a 2 storey addition to my older home and do some renovations to the existing house as well as to renovate the closed-in porch. The project lasted 4 1/2 months and was delivered on time. John was very approachable. He also made himself available to review decisions or answer any questions. I would recommend Falcon Contracting as being reliable, professional, and skillful and on time.

Front porch teardown/rebuild

We got a recommendation from John from a friend he did a much bigger job for, and we're glad we did. He rebuilt our aging, drafty front porch encasement for us, including putting a new window and spray insulation. He did great work - excellent craftsmanship, done on schedule, a clean, safe worksite and good communication, can't ask for more than that - and it's stood up well. I'd be happy to hire him again.

Assess insulation issues

John came to our house to assess some issues we were having with cold and insulation. He was courteous, smart, diligent, and practical. He ended providing guidance to us on multiple issues we were having with our house, and then followed up (twice!) to ensure the problems were being taken care of. So grateful for his help and his expertise and would definitely recommend him!!
