Reno Coach gave us full peace of mind for our house renovation

We are glad we have chosen Reiner when we start our full house renovation from the very beginning. Reiner's expertise and knowledge help us pick the best options and contractors. The whole house renovation completed very quickly, so we can move back just before COVID-19 second lockdown. Thank you Reiner for your excellent options and guidance throughout the project. We would never hesitate to recommend Reno Coach to anyone.

2 story build

Reiner - the Reno Coach - was fantastic and an integral part of our two story build from digging down our basement to building our two story house. His expertise and experience helped us at all stages. He provided us with great contractor options. He provided expert advise to us and the builders. He was an invaluable advocate to ensure our build was the best it could be. Finally, as a person who knows nothing about home construction, he reduced our stress ten fold as we could count on speedy responses and thorough answers to all of our questions. Moreover, for those wanting an energy efficient build he is knowledge is unsurpassed.

3 level extension and interior gut

The scope of our project was extensive, requiring us to move out for 6 months (March 2018 - Sept 2018). We live in east end Toronto, (Coxwell/Danforth area), our home is semi-detached and approx 80 years old. Work completed: basement lowering 3 story extension out the back, main and second floor remodeling.

We connected with Reiner very early on, knowing we had no basis of knowledge to move such a huge project on our own. We are so glad we did. His network of designers, contractors and architects were all excellent and worked well together. Reiner was also essential to getting us through the committee of adjustments in conjunction with our design architect. He further connected us to our underpinner, designer, and general contractor. All were excellent. Reiner was also very helpful in moving issues along and providing advice/options. He was careful to be impartial when it came to selecting vendors - he presented us with options and left the choice to us. He also assisted reviewed contracts, making helpful suggestions as needed.

Overall, we would highly recommend Reiner. Our reno was smooth and delivered on time. The end result is something my family and I benefit from every single day. Thank you Reiner!

major house renovation

We did a major, year long renovation to our home in the Beaches. Reiner handled obtaining bids, helped with choosing contractors and then did a great job in making sure things went well throughout the renovation. He is extremely knowledgeable and we are very happy to have had him assisting with this renovation.

Kitchen Renovation and Garage new build

We have no hesitation in recommending The Reno Coach.
Having undergone previous projects/renovations where we were unhappy with contractors and results, led us to enlist Reiner's help. From the initial obtaining of permits (and subsequent COA process), to the completion of our projects, Reiner connected us with the best people and was involved as little or as much as we needed him to be.
Reiner's guidance and expertise and contacts proved invaluable and well worth the investment. It was a pleasure working with him.

Front of house reno

Reiner was very helpful with our reno. Even though our reno was considered relatively small compared to the work that Reiner typically does, he was instrumental in getting Committee of Adjustment approval and hiring the right contractor for the job. Would use him again!!

The Reno Coach Kept Us Out of Trouble!

We really enjoyed working with the Reno Coach and diverted many potential disasters for doing so. They fully understand the infrastructure of obtaining permits, handling Committee of Adjustment cases and choosing the right contractor for your job. It may feel like an extra expense, but your investment will save you much more money in the long run!

Kitchen and Bath Renovations

We are grateful for the services of Reno Coach! We were guided and coached through our kitchen and two bathroom renovations from start to finish. The end result exceeded our imagination. We especially appreciated how this project was completed within the time frame given. We value Reiner’s knowledge of the industry; his expertise of what and how things are to be done properly and his experience of seeing many projects.

House Renovation

Amazing Experience!
We were originally hesitant about doing a renovation because we had heard of many bad experiences by friends and acquaintances. We are thrilled to report that not only was our renovation a success in terms of the outcome, but it was a surprisingly positive experience. The Reno Coach was instrumental in helping us throughout the entire experience. This included helping us get drawings, obtain permits, find and select our contractor (who was fabulous too). The Reno Coach was our partner all the way to the end of the reno, ensuring we were happy with the process and outcome. We are very happy customers, and highly recommend the Reno Coach!

Complete Gut & Underpin in Midtown

We'd been living in our 1920's-built house for 15 years, with all of the associated problems: no insulation in the exterior walls, not-even-6-foot-high basement ceiling, no weeping tile, and so on. We decided it was finally time to fix the place up properly, and we were very lucky to find The Reno Coach on Homestars.

Reiner helped us from the start, when we weren't even sure exactly what we wanted to do, all the way through to the end. He guided us through getting prices for options, setting the scope of the project, putting bids out to contractors, selecting the one we wanted to work with, and then keeping things on the rails through to the end. We were on time, and we were on budget, and everyone I've spoken to about that can hardly believe it's possible.

I've already recommended him dozens of people asking about our reno. The thing that blows their minds most? You can get a contract where your contractor pays you $100/day if they're late finishing! Yes, it can happen, if you get yourself a Reno Coach. So do that.

More about The Reno Coach

When it comes to home renovations, what you don't know really can hurt you. TM That's because successful renovations aren't as easy as they seem. Far from it. Behind what looks like a simple process lurks the potential for very expensive, very frustrating lessons. In fact, it's more than just ...
