Minor touch-ups

We had our stucco done 3 years ago and it still looks pristine! We called Marco re: some minor touch-ups we required due to some additional landscape work we had done around the perimeter of the house. One of his crew members came within 2 days and got the job done. He was extremely thorough and his attention to detail was over and beyond our expectations. We have the utmost respect for Marco and his amazing Team at Dessano Stucco and their professionalism speaks volumes!

Stucco Repairs

We had Marco's crew's fix some significant failures in our home's original stucco exterior. Marco was great at providing options for the most cost-effective repairs and suggestions to make the house look even better afterwards. His crew were amazing to work with. They were able to complete the job in a short time, cleaned up every day and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. The house now looks better than the original design and we have peace of mind that the right repairs were done and further water damage will not occur.

We would recommend Dessano to anyone with a stucco home for small or large repairs.

Stucco, stone, soffits - extraordinary results

Marco and team completely exceeded our expectations. We had a rough vision to replace a terrible old stucco job with various options. Marco worked that vision to provide multiple combinations of stucco, stone, and siding, and his advice about curb appeal, function, costs, longevity, etc. The team was friendly, professional, and meticulous with every facet. The transformation has been incredible and we’ve had many neighbours complementing the results. On time, on budget, professional craftsmanship, with unparalleled attention to detail. We would highly recommend Dessano to transform your home or commercial buildings.

Re-Stucco - 125 yr old English Arts and Crafts Home

Marco and his crew were amazing. Marco is confident, competent, and comprehensive in his approach to a project. His crew were experts who worked efficiently and were meticulous in their craft. Polite, professional and cleaned the site up well.
Our project was by no means cookie cutter, as the house is not straightforward to work on. The lot is tight, with many plantings and trees. The crew took this all in stride and got to it. Marco walked us through the decisions and design options. He let us chose but was extremely helpful. He wanted this to be our project done our way, but was always ready to offer advice and options when asked. He knows what he is doing. Take his advice.
We highly recommend Dessano Stucco Systems, and were very pleased with the work.

Tudor Stucco Replacement - Excellent Customer Service & Craftsmanship

When was the last time you worked with a contractor that not only met (which is rare enough) but exceeded your expectations? The stucco and beams on our 30 year Tudor were way past their "best by" date and needed replacing. Marco and his crew did a phenomenal job and we are thrilled with the end result.

Every box was ticked:

(1) Quality - The quality of the materials and craftsmanship was spot on & the finished product looks amazing - more so than I expected going into this project.

(2) Value - His pricing was excellent, especially considering the caliber of the work.

(3) Professional - Both Marco and his crew were very professional & accommodating during the entire process.

(4) Responsive - Marco was always prompt in getting back to me when I had a question and his crew were similarly responsive. I really appreciated that Marco was not an "absentee owner" and checked in at the site most days to see how things were going and address any issues/questions personally.

(5) On time - The job started when Marco said it would, the workers arrived promptly every morning and worked throughout the day & the project took the exact amount of time that he predicted (another rarity in any renovation).

Overall a great experience and I would not hesitate in recommending Dessano to others....I'd give them extra stars of I could!

M.M.,
Your review was so good that my Homestars rep called me to talk to me about it. Thank you for all the nice things you said about me and my team. Although it was a bit of a hike for us, we loved working for you in your beautiful natural setting. I'm so glad you're loving your new house and enjoying what we do. The house looks fantastic and the new aluminum soffit made a big difference too. Thanks again for everything.

Regards, Marco

Dessano Stucco Came to My Rescue

The outside of our house was in desperate need of painting but also needed stucco repairs. We found the painters but the repairs were not a big enough draw for the stucco people the painters knew. So I turned to HomeStars. Dessano's was the first company to answer AND the only one who took the time to explain to me the difference between repair vs replace as it would effect how the paint would look. This was even before I asked for a quote.

I did have to chase them a bit to tee up times, and Dessano's was not the least expensive quote, but after speaking with them during the walk around look at our house with my engineering husband, we felt sure the company would do a great job.

Dessano's crew arrived on time, came up with a great solution to a part of the bottom back wall that had never been stucco'd (it had been covered by an elaborate deck and enclosed staircase), discovered part of our front trim was actually stucco molding and repaired and painted that, and did a fantastic clean-up when they were finished. Even our painters were impressed when they came a week later.

We highly recommend Dessano's. If we were to need any other stucco work, we would choose Dessano's again.

Not Just Stucco - Peace of Mind Too!

I selected Dessano Stucco to redo the front of my house after the builder’s original stucco work failed. At all points during the process, Marco and his team were professional, thorough, and pleasant to work with. Marco provided me with several design ideas so that it wasn’t just a repair job, but an enhanced exterior façade for my home. Work was completed as quoted, on time, and with excellent quality. More importantly, the crew were real craftsmen who took pride in their work, and showed meticulous attention to detail. I’m delighted with the finished product! When you choose Dessano Stucco, you aren’t just buying stucco - you are buying peace of mind!

Thank you for this kind review Carolyn. And thank you for being so "easy to work with" throughout the entire process. Not only does the house look brand new again, but I'm really liking our re-design collaboration. This was a great before and after. Keep well and all the best! Thanks again.

Expert Exterior Refresh and Renewal

Last year we finally moved forward on our long standing intention to refresh the exterior of our older (100 year plus) North Toronto home by working with Marco of Dessano Stucco Systems Inc.. We cannot be happier with the results delivered by Marco and his team! From the outset Marco provided us with expert guidance to assist us in our selection of stucco, colours, trim, new exterior door, lighting, eavestrough, stone steps and custom wrought iron to suit our home. We are truly appreciative that he took the time to carefully work with us and honestly express his opinions on the options available, ensuring that we would be happy with the outcome.

Marco is a hands on owner who carefully supervised the project, co-ordinating work with various trades to complete the project in a timely manner, leaving the property in pristine condition. A member of the crew came back after completion of the project to install the cast metal house number which we had ordered from a Canadian supplier in B.C. (Mayfair Signs) to complete the look.

We are extremely pleased with the look, the quality of the work, and the energy savings from installing a new stucco system. We highly recommend Dessano Stucco Systems Inc. to you.

Amazing Exterior Transformation

We have a 71 year old home. Most of the windows were the original to the house, and the painted cement brick and siding exterior was really showing its age. We wanted to address these issues for a long time, however, we felt quite overwhelmed by the extent of the project, until we found Dessano Stucco Systems Inc. We were pleasantly surprised that Dessano’s could deal with everything that needed to be done and manage the entire project for us. We met with the owner Marco who very quickly understood what we were looking for and made several recommendations to enhance the project to the best it could be. Marco walked us through every step of the job and made us feel extremely confident to proceed. Through the process Marco and his team were always on top of every aspect of the job, which had many moving parts. The level of attention to detail far surpassed our expectations, and Marco’s expertise guiding us in choosing the right materials for our job was invaluable. We ended up changing the roof, windows, doors, added trim, stone and stucco, basically remodeling the entire exterior of our home. The end result is far more than we ever imagined it could be and we are very grateful to Marco and his team for making our home absolutely beautiful.

Ronnie,
It was a long thought-out process but I can honestly say the time and planning involved was worth it. These are always my favourite types of renovations. When you see before and after photos and don't realize that you're looking at the same house. From the roofline, to the roof, to the windows & doors, the stone, stucco, aluminum and garage, we both put a lot of time and effort In this project together and the result is stunning. I'm happy to hear the compliments from the neighbours keep pouring in. The potlights around the house were also a nice touch. This will always be one of my favourite projects. Thank you for choosing Dessano.

2 Storey Home - New Stucco

I can best sum up our experience with Marco and his team from Dessano by saying, if you have Stucco work to be done - hire them. I can confidently say that after working with various contractors on our home over the last 20 years, they are by far the best.

We had the all of the stucco on our home replaced. The quality of the work was amazing and it looks beautiful. Not only did Marco help us to resolve a number of structural issues resulting from the original build, he also made some great recommendations on things we could do to enhance the look of our exterior. He did all of this while at the same time presented a very fair price.

His customer service is incredible. Any questions or concerns we had after the work was completed, he responded right away and his team was there for us.

We're very proud of how our home looks thanks to Dessano.
