Condo Renovation

With my overall vision to guide them, HIP took my preferences and tastes and with the assistance of their professional designer, turned what used to be an old ordinary condo unit, into a stunningly luxurious designer masterpiece. It is truly a transformed space, and a sight to behold. it is just beautiful. I absolutely love it!

We had significant overland water damage in our basement last year. After getting quotes from a couple of places, We hired the Home Improvement People to help put it all back together again. Elia came to the house and answered all of our questions and provided us with the estimate. The project was completed without issue - it was done on time and on budget. We are very happy with the work done by Lino and his son Junior - the basement looks great again - and they went over and above in the work they did. Very diligent and reliable - we would most definitely use them again should the need arise.

Two bathrooms in 8 days!

I've been through many renovations and never would have believed that two bathrooms could be completely renovated in 8 working days, but that's exactly what happened and they are beautiful. Thank you to Ben, Charlotte, Gerhard and especially Dima and Slav who worked so hard to get this job done quickly. Their work was impeccable and they did it without breaking any of the condo "rules".

Basement Renovation

After much research, my husband and I decided to use The Home Improvement People for our basement renovation. Our experience in working with H.I.P. was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. From the initial meeting with Elia and the follow up calls thereafter Elia put us at ease with the project.

Start date was scheduled and the basement reno started right on time!!! Elia introduced us to John and Moises who were assigned to our project and we couldn’t be more thankful.

We were very impressed with the quality of their work and the knowledge they brought. John and Moises were very professional, efficient and attentive to all of our questions and believe me there were many questions!!! John and Moises provided alternative solutions when and as needed so that we could make an informed decision on what would work best. These guys are great and as far as home renovation projects go this was by far the best experience we’ve had on this large of a scale. Even the billing process was smooth and accommodating and I’d like to thank Haydee for that.

We have no hesitation in recommending the team at H.I.P and will look forward to future projects.

Signing off as Happy Customers!!!!

Underpinning, basement apartment, 2 floor complete reno

We needed to completely gut and renovate 2 full floors, including underpinning and creation of a legal basement apartment in our 100 year old semi-detached home, and knew that excellent communication and project management was our top priority in selecting a contractor (and to maintain our sanity throughout the process). Working with Larry, Elia, Charlotte, and all of their subcontractors made the project seamless from start to finish, and any hiccups encountered were promptly responded to and dealt with. Our job included: architectural drawings and permitting, underpinning, waterproofing, structural work, fire proofing to code, all new windows and doors, all new electrical, all new HVAC, 2 washrooms, 2 full kitchens, hardwood floors, insulation, tiling, a backyard deck, finishing, and everything in between.

Navigating the legal basement apartment construction and permitting process can be a complex task in downtown Toronto. Larry managed everything perfectly through the inspection process, and all the subcontractors hired were professional, courteous, and delivered high quality work. After having gone through a stressful renovation in the past, hiring HIP this time around was a no-brainer, even knowing that they would cost us a bit more. We highly recommend their service, and would gladly hire them again in the future.

John and Moses had completed a superb job on our total gut Basement about 6 months ago.

A Contractor is measured by the quality of their work AND, just as importantly, by their response to issues after the work has been completed and the final cheque has been cashed.

In the past week we noticed a water issue in an enclosed ceiling caused by condensation on a pre-existing cold water pipe in proximity with a dryer vent exhaust. The problem did not manifest itself until recently due to the warmer weather. We called the 'Boys' and they promptly responded, making time in their busy schedule to come by, assess the situation and apply the required fix.

Again John and Moses did not disappoint and we continue to be impressed with their high level customer service even months after the job had been completed.

Thanks again.

From your very pleased and satisfied customers... Jack and Barb (Lankin Blvd renovation)

Great kitchen, on budget, on schedule

We had our kitchen/office space completely gutted and renovated in October of 2017 by the Home Improvement People and we could not believe how fast and efficient they were. The workers were always a pleasure to have in our home and everyone from the painters to the plumbers showed terrific attention to detail. My house was very old, not square, and this area had not previously been renovated, so we were prepared for issues and delays. Yet, even though they did find mould behind one of the walls, there were no delays at all - they gave us a very reasonable estimate for the additional work to replace the damaged wood, and it had no impact at all on the timeline. We got a completely new and beautiful kitchen in four weeks start to finish.

I also appreciated the design expertise that Charlotte brought. We wanted a white, modern kitchen that would not look out of place in our colourful, old-fashioned house, and she gave us terrific advice on integrating the different spaces so that it all flowed smoothly. We would absolutely recommend The Home Improvement People and will be sure to call them first if we have any further renovation work needed.

We recently had our main bathroom renovated and we were very impressed with the work performed by Kris and his team. The renovation exceeded all of our expectations and was completed on time and on budget with minimal disruption in our household. They were very pleasant to work with, very efficient and provided many excellent ideas.

Special thanks to Kris, Key and Harry for a job well done.

Hired HIP to do a full kitchen renovation. Working with Charlotte (the designer) was great, she created the drawings for the cabinetry & helped us pick out colours. Also did a great job in picking out floor tile for us as we were really stumped. It was a pleasure working with with her.

Larry (contractor) was also very great to work with. The job took a month, and he did a great job at always getting the next person in to do their job (usually the next day). He was also good at listening to what we wanted, and figuring out a way to get it done.

Overall, I’m really happy with my new kitchen, and really happy that I hired the HIP to do the job. I plan on calling them in a few years to renovate my bathroom!

I’m really happy that I hired them.
