Bert was referred to us by a friend. They recently had their bathroom renovated and said he had done an excellent job. So I gave him a call to see about renovating our master bathroom and removing a wall on the main floor to open up the kitchen and living room. I contacted Bert and he came by the following day and provided me with an estimate. His price was fair and we decided to move forward with the renovation. Bert and his team started work the following week. They showed up on time and completed the job ahead of schedule. They did an amazing job on the bathroom. The removal of the wall really opened up the main floor. Bert and his team got rid of all the waste and left my house tidy. My wife really like that. Bert and his team were definitely professionals. I would surely hire him again.

We recently had Bert and his team remove a load bearing wall for us. I contacted Bert in the evening and he was able to come by the very next day to take a look at the scope of work and give us a quote.

We were thrilled that he was able to fit us into his schedule the very next week (within 3 working days of first contacting him). Bert and his team were extremely professional and efficient with the work. They had to install 2 steel beams and 3 posts to support the beams.

It was not easy work and there were some unforeseen issues which resulted in additional work having to be done. However, I was never stressed or worried as Bert really knows his stuff and he was able to come up with the solution and successfully complete the job. He was also very forthcoming about additional costs - which were very reasonable given the amount of work done.

I would not hesitate to recommend Bert and his team to anyone. They were also very neat and cleaned up after themselves once the job was done. Thank you Bert and team for the great job that you did!

We just had our wall removed by Bert and his team at Cando Renovations and the job that these guys did went beyond our expectations...So far and beyond the minimum requirements didnt exist anymore....My wife and I are way more than happy of the result...My only "concern" during the 2-day job they did was that these guys showed up too early..LOL...

Again, Bert and your crew, thank you so much...

Bert came as promised, managed to squeeze this job in his schedule, and delivered a quick and great job. Good and professional job done in record time. Even though he had to adjust his work (not due to his problem) he made sure that it is being done the right way.

We first hired Bert and his team in Dec. 2015 to remove a load bearing wall.

They were very accommodating in keeping the mess/dirt to a minimum with having a baby in the home. The pricing was fair and had it done in a day in a half. Because we were so pleased, when it came time to fix up the basement in-law apartment, we hired him again. We had the drop down ceiling replaced with drywall ceiling and installed pot lights; replaced bathroom tub with a walk-in shower. They were able to extend the length of the kitchen counter by matching up the existing countertop and cupboards. You wouldn’t even know it was extended after the fact. Bert & his crew were able to start earlier than anticipated. They were always here on time, very friendly, always cleaning up the area at the end of the day and have attention to detail. Every time I asked about something, they were already on it. Bert under promises and over delivers has great suggestions and is honest which can be hard to come by these days. We’ll definitely use them again for our next project.

I previously had a load bearing wall removed by Bert in 2015 and knew the excellent work he did for that job at a good price. So I was a bit hesitant contacting him for a smaller job, but to my surprise he was happy to come have a look and quoted me a fair price.

Bert was able to fit me in with his other work within the week. Not only did he do a great job putting in the venting for my gas range (on an interior wall), he came in under budget!

Bert's experience in the business is what sets him apart, doing huge jobs in six figure amounts, but you wouldn't know it when he walks in your door. Honest and humble gentleman who wants even small jobs done right.

We will continue to use Bert and his team for as long as he's in business!

I contacted Bert based on his reviews and I was not disappointed with the work he did. Bert and his team efficiently removed a load bearing wall separating my kitchen to the living room and installed a 21 foot steel beam flush mounted to the ceiling. Bert was was able to complete the job in the time frame he estimated and his price was competitive and fair he also kept his word on his quote once the job was completed. Bert and his team were very patient and polite. I would hire Cando again!

Bert has completed four significant separate jobs for us. Each job was completed on time and in a highly satisfied manner. A couple of these tasks had significant challenges to be overcome and Cando came to the rescue. I my opinion many contractors would have been intimidated by these jobs or would have priced them very high. Cando, led by Bert, did a masterful job in each case. Cando are highly efficient, focused on the time line and on budget. In short, a rare contractor. Overall, I rank Cando and Bert exceptional. They will definitely do my next job too, whatever that may be. Satisfied customer: D Richmond.

Our main floor was a family room with brick fireplace on one side and a combination living/dining room with a galley kitchen in the middle. We wanted an open concept design and needed to remove 2 loadbearing walls to do it so we contacted Bert after reading great reviews online. We were really impressed with our initial conversations with Bert and asked him to be our general contractor for the entire project.
We had a pretty extensive wish list which included the new floors, ceilings, walls, staircase, fireplace, window and doors.
Bert completed the job on time and on budget and he and his team were amazingly responsive, attentive to detail and very respectful of our home and our neighbours. Bert is great to deal with- incredibly knowledgeable about every aspect of the project with a valuable network of skilled tradespeople and vendors in the area. We are thrilled with the results and are already planning to use Cando for future renovations on our basement and upper level. We would readily recommend Bert to any of our friends or family.
