Wall Removal

I hired Bert and his team after moving to a new home in Toronto. I wanted to open up the main floor but was unsure if it was possible. I was happy to learn that Bert could remove one of our load bearing walls to open up the space. He was quick and courteous. 10/10 all around!

Bathroom renovations

Bert did an amazing job removing a load bearing wall so we decided to hire him again to renovate our main bathroom and ensuite bathroom. They both needed to be completely remodeled.
Bert and his crew show up early every morning, they work very hard and get slot accomplished every day. His crew are respectful of our home.
Bert's experience was amazing, as always with any reno there were a few surprises once the new tub and vanity were to be installed. Bert was able to quickly figure out how to work around it and make
it all happen as planned.
They did an amazing job and were finished both bathrooms in under 2 weeks.
We now have 2 amazing bathrooms that look like they are from a spa.
I would definitely recommend this company.

Flush beam installation, replace popcorn ceiling, install potlights

After removing one wall 3 years ago with Bert, we decided to pursue another load bearing wall removal. We were confident Bert could do it properly and efficiently. Bert quickly came to look at the job and suggested that we go with a flush-beam. While it was a little bit more money, my wife and I agreed with him that the flush beam would be the best choice. Since we were opening the wall we also decided to remove the old popcorn ceiling and do flat ceiling with potlights.

Bert and his crew arrived promptly each day. Bert was also accommodating when we asked about taking down another ceiling in the family room. It was no problem for him. Electrical was handled by Rudy who did a great job to fix up messy work done by a previous contractor who installed the kitchen.

The ceiling removal and mudding & taping is a really messy job. Nothing can be done about that. However, we did it at the right time since the wall was being done, plus we had removed our flooring to install new hardwood. It was really worth it though as the ceilings look amazing. It's very nice having good lighting in each of those rooms now, and the ceilings were finished flawlessly.

One minor issue came up in regards to the potlight color that was initially installed, but Bert and his electrician kindly accommodated our request to change them.

Since we were doing other projects such as refinishing stairs, flooring, fireplace surround, breakfast bar/cabinetry, and tiling of foyer, Bert kindly provided his wisdom and experience by answering a number of my questions and offering suggestions on how best to finish each of those areas.

Bert operates a great business, trustworthy, priced well and most importantly done right.

Kitchen Renovation, including partial removal of load bearing wall

We just had our kitchen renovated with Cando Renovations, and couldn't be happier. Right from the initial contact we felt Bert was very trustworthy and knowledgeable, and very helpful in pointing out different aspects of the project. He has been in this business for many, many years, and was able to give us excellent advice, thus reducing our expenses.
We initially requested a quote on the partial removal of a load-bearing wall between our kitchen and sunken living room. Bert was able to show us the best way to go about our renovation and we decided to let Cando take care of the complete project. Bert and his crew removed our old
kitchen and the bulkheads, partially removed a load-bearing wall, and installed a new opening to the sunken living room. As the wall was removed, Bert discovered some faulty duct work, and corrected the builders' mistakes from over 30 years ago! He took care of all electrical, including installation of potlights, undermount lighting and pendants over the island. He relocated and took care of all plumbing, installed drywall and trim as needed and installed exhaust fan and appliances. He also installed our backsplash.
Throughout the renovation Bert was always very prompt in responding to texts, calls or emails. Our kitchen looks very nice, and has turned out
very functional. Thank you so much, Bert! Please, don't retire before we do our laundry room! Also thanks to Adam, who was always cheerful,
professional and polite, and to Justin and Rudy, the electrician.

Wall removal and front entrance extension

We had a supporting wall removed and a 17 foot double "c-chanel" steel beam placed flush into the ceiling as well as moved our front door forward 5 1/2 feet.
Bert and his crew were efficient, knowledgeable and respectful to both our home and young family. Bert helped us to navigate through permits, floor layouts, HVAC idea's and additional contractors. The projects were completed within the agreed timelines and seamlessly that the new changes appear to have always been there. We could not imagine doing such a big project with anyone else.
Definitely worth every penny and will be using their services for future projects.
Thanks Bert and crew.
(Will try to post photos soon)

Home tenovation

We have had the pleasure to work with Bert and his skillful and pleasant crew. Cando completed The first project which included the kitchen and ensuite. This part was completed in the winter months, when we were away. This turned out fantastic! The second project was removing a load bearing wall and installing a new bulkhead and getting it paint ready. The quality was beyond our expectations. I would definitely recommend Bert and Cando.
