Basement renovation

I was very happy the day I found John-luc on HomeStars. He and his wife Sandra are a pleasure to deal with. They are very knowledgeable as well as being very friendly and hard working. Being very satisfied with a few small jobs they did for me, I had no hesitation about asking them to do a complete basement renovation. The basement had been flooded in 2013 and I was left with concrete floors, 1/2 walls of drywall and my bathroom looked like the contractors who cleaned out the basement used a sledgehammer. I cannot express how happy I was when John-Luc completed the basement. He had made some small changes when putting up the drywall which left me with more space. There was an ugly support pole in the basement and now it is a lovely column. John-luc and Sandra always let me know what the next step in the reno was and offered advise and recommendations for accessories. They are hard workers and would stay late some days to make sure that everything was done perfectly. They are very considerate and always cleaned and tidied up their work space at the end of the day. I have recommended them to a friend and she is also very satisfied. I will continue to use their services and to recommend them to all my friends.

Basement dryer vent installation

John-luc and Sandra were very helpful in sorting out a dryer venting issue in our basement laundry room. They had some very good solutions to deal with previous work that was not up to code, and did the work quickly and cleanly. It was a very good experience after several other vent cleaners could not do the work because of the complexity, and another contractor would not take the work because the job was relatively small. We will use them again when we have the need.

Repair leaking pipe in laundry room.

I discovered that water from the upstairs bathroom was leaking into my laundry room. Having not used contractors very often, I was nervous about who to hire. I am so glad that John-luc was available to help. He and his team were very friendly and knowledgeable. They explained what they had to do and showed me every step. While they were there, I asked questions about other issues I noticed around the house and they were able to fix all those problems as well. When given the bill, I asked Sandra to recheck her figures because I could not believe the cost was so reasonable. I am planning to have them back to do some outside work whenever they are available. I have other projects in mind for the future as well. I would highly recommend them to others.

Open concept, new kitchen and bathroom

We recently bought a home and needed work done to it. We were recommended to John-Luc and Sandra through a friend. At the beginning they listened to our needs and was confident that our will be met. They did a tremendous job on opening our living/dining room and giving us a newer larger kitchen. We were very happy of their work ethics and how they listened to us. We were kept inform as to the progress of the work and also to the budget. We will definitely call on them for future projects and would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat. Thank you again from our whole family. Brian and Jackie

renovate multi unit apartment building

I purchased a run down multi unit investment property. It required a complete redo as well as the addition of 3 2 bedroom apartments.

The job was extensive and I had apprehensions about choosing a contractor. That was until I met John Luc Rizzo and his partner/wife Sandra.

This major project was completed on time and on budget. John and Sandra are professional, friendly and knowledgable and were able to bring my vision of this project to fruition.

The building is up and running and maintaining positive cashflow. I am looking forward to my next project whereupon I will readily employ the services of John Luc and his lovely wife Sandra.

Basement renovation

I went through an extensive basement renovation with John-Luc and Sandra, and the end result is excellent.

Up front before the work started, John-Luc and Sandra described the work they would do and some of the materials they would use. They only specified good building practices and good quality materials. The pricing was appropriate for what they described but less costly than some other contractors I spoke with. I did find a contractor who was willing to do things for less, but to achieve that lower price, that other contractor wanted to cut some corners. To put it another way, John-Luc and Sandra charged a very reasonable price for good work, not a low price for poor work.

The renovation involved not only demolition of the existing finished basement's interior but also removal of several support walls and replacement with new metal and wood (LVL) support beams. They found a good and reasonably priced architect for me and worked closely with both the architect and the engineering firm to ensure all was done correctly. John-Luc and Sandra did much of the work themselves, and were obviously quite meticulous, taking the time to make sure things were done right. However, the other trades they brought in for the job also impressed me, and in fact, I have since hired the electrician they used for another electrical job in my house.

John-Luc and Sandra were always quick to answer any questions. During the day they were always reachable by phone, but if I thought of any questions in the evening or on the weekend I would email them, and by the next business day I would have an answer.

All in all, I am very satisfied with John-Luc's and Sandra's work. I would definitely recommend them.

underpinning and renovation

On July 15th/2010 John-luc Rizzo General Contractor finished a project at my home. The project consisted of an extensive renovation throughout the whole house especially in the basement. The house had to be gutted, underpinned in the basement,and landscaped outside. New kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, electrical, plumbing, heating, support walls, windows, doors, water lines were installed. I was very impressed with the outcome of the work and the timeliness of the project. The customer service i recieved was second to none! I will definitely use this company in the future.

Partial Basement Renovation

We contracted John-Luc and Sandra's team to update our basement living area (drywall ceiling, closet doors, repair mold, window well repair and tile). Throughout the entire process they were always approachable(in person, phone and by email) and their crew was very professional. They were always respectful of our concerns and willing to accomodate our schedule. For us it was a great relief to have trustworthy, diligent people that showed up on time, did the work and were easy to deal with. I will definitely be passing their name on as a must-have contractor and am already planning the next project. Thanks John-Luc and Sandra!
