Hi Ben,
I am a very happy with my reno. Everything went according to plan. Jerry was a pleasure to work with, top notch craftman; reliable, honest, trustworthy, organized and friendly and it was a relief to stop second guessing the purchases I had made and finally hand them over to an expert.
Thank you so very much.

A short note in recognition of the excellent work done in our master bedroom and two bathrooms. Over the years we have had some rather unpleasant experiences with home renovation people, so have become somewhat sceptical. Thanks to effective CFRB advertising, we felt confident inviting The Home Improvement People to undertake our rather unique project. From beginning to end, Mike and his crew took great pride in their craftsmanship and cheerfully worked through every challenge until we were completely satisfied with every small detail. Communication was always clear, the price fair (with no mysterious "add-ons" as work progressed), and the finished product most pleasing. Not only are we very happy about the great job done, but also know who to contact for future improvements.

Dan:
A dream come true - Goodbye to the 70s fake panelling, the ugly ceiling tiles, the 50s bathroom with the concrete walls, and the myriad pipes and wires dangling from the floorboards over the washer. Larry and his crew have transformed a dreary old basement into a warm and welcoming family room with a beautifully tiled bathroom and laundry with custom paintwork throughout. Thanks to all the crew for their patience in dealing with the peculiarities of an old house (not to mention the old couple who live in it!).

We would also like to say thanks to Bill Carroll for his endorsement of The Home Improvement People. We had many quotes but knowing Bill had actually used your services we were confident you would do a good job and we weren't disappointed. We will show off our new space to all our friends and will recommend your company without hesitation.

Dear Ben

Imagine –a renovator who starts the job when he says he will and finishes within the time frame quoted! You sounded too good to be true. But your people were so good and you were true to your schedule. I have been active with word of mouth praise already.
Home Improvement People were pleasant to have in our home while they each finished their particular job. The finished product-wonderful!

Thanks Bill Carroll for recommending them and I’ll join the other happy homeowners who used them in joining the chorus of praise.

We had The Home Improvement People do 2 bathrooms for us. I am amazed at how well the process went. From the first meeting until the final paint touch up - the professionalism and workmanship were just incredible. They came through on everything they said. We paid slightly more than a competing estimate. But, it was worth every penny for the job to be done correctly the first time. I have had friends and relatives who have done renovations and were literally brought to tears by the process. My experience could not have been more the opposite. It was a great great experience and we look forward to doing our basement in the fall. I would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone and everyone.

As promised - here is my review. sorry it took so long.

A short note to say how happy we are with the renovation done by the Home Improvement People.

Mein and his crew worked extremely well together. The entire process was well co-ordinated and moved along quickly. They worked in a professional, conscientious manner, always waiting to please us in every detail. With Christmas holidays fast approaching, Mein understood the importance of having a functional kitchen as soon as possible. He sacrificed personal time by working on the weekend so that the cabinets could be installed earlier than scheduled. We are thrilled with the new dark look of our kitchen cabinets and to have it before Christmas is a real bonus!
In addition, they placed a new laminate floor in the basement and transformed an old dingy room to a warm and welcoming family room. We just love it! It has given the room a much fresher cleaner look. We are certain that from now on it will be used to its full potential.

Finally, I would like to thank Sylvio for suggesting at the outset of our meeting, the sanding and staining of our living/dining/hallway floors. The new backsplash in the kitchen looks fantastic. I’m not sure if I want to sell my house now as I really love the fresh new look and feel of it.

Great job….well done!

We would not hesitate to recommend the Home Improvement People to my family and friends.
