renovation

My renovation for my family home was just completed. I am so happy with the attention and service provided by lakeshore. The owner saved me thousands of dollars, completed on time and was VERY PROFESSIONAL. His team was fantastic. We highly recommend this company.

Condo Renovation

We have enormous sympathy for the individual who gave this company a 0 rating. We were undertaking a $200,000 plus condo reno. But with a week to the start date, the company still hadn’t provided us with a promised contract. When we pressed, we were told to pay a $5,000 retainer and the contract would follow on our agreed terms. Our backs against a time wall, we paid it. The contract that we then received was a joke, containing none of the points we had negotiated. Unbelievably, it actually required US to pay for the company’s insurance! There was no penalty for late completion, nor was the company obliged to guarantee its quotes, although we were to be penalized for any lateness even if we were not responsible. We were also expected us to pay the company’s lawyer for drafting the contract. Naturally we refused. The "retainer" was never returned. In the end, our project was a dream. The trades we scouted were fantastic, and although we went high-end we came in tens of thousands under what Lakeshore had estimated at the low end. Our relationship with this company had us awake at nights; we lost $5,000 but we count ourselves lucky.

Renovation

Leo beautifully renovated my home in Oakville. The end product was exactly what I had described and wanted. His trades were professional, personable and highly skilled. Leo's attention to detail coupled with his level of experience, knowledge and expertise are second to none. I would certainly recommend Leo and Lakeshore Custom Homes.

New Custom Home

We had our dream home built by Leo Scomparin of Lakeshore Custom Homes Inc. this year. He did an excellent job and we were very pleased with his trades and suppliers. He is very professional and honest. His system of open book Project Management suited my wife and I very well as we felt a part of the entire process.
His technical knowledge and is very good and his attention to the smallest details is remarkable.
We strongly recommend using this company.

Project Manager

I have used the sub-trades employed by Lakeshore Custom Homes both as an Architect and a General Contractor. They are exceptional in a highly unregulated residential construction industry. I have experience with Leo as an architect and find there is nothing underhanded or 2nd rate about his services.

I encourage those with problems with residential contractors to look at a CCDC 2 which is a stipulated price contact from the Canadian Construction Documents Committee and see just what an owners responsibilities are and what the usual recourse is when there are problems. Slandering someone is easy. Making a project work is hard.

We had Lakeshore Custom Homes build our new home.

NEVER, EVER HIRE THIS BUFFOON AND HIS COMPANY. HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING. IS COMPLETELY UNPROFESSIONAL, IS A FRAUD, UNETHICAL AND UNABLE TO DO ANYTHING. OUR HOUSE IS A MESS. WE HAD TO HIRE ANOTHER BUILDER TO START FROM SCRATCH - FIX ALL THE MESSES (AND HAZARDS) FROM LAKESHORE.

PLEASE, PLEASE DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE WE DID. TELL EVERYONE.
