We want to thank Natanael, Antonio and the rest of his team at P&P General Contractors for building the kitchen and main floor of our dreams!
For us it was a dream many years in the making. After being burned by working with a terrible contractor on a smaller renovation project, we wanted to make sure we found someone who not only did great work, but was also dependable and ethical. Natanael and his team delivered on this in spades!
After eight weeks of hard work they transformed our 50-year-old main floor by taking out two walls and installing an LVL supporting beam to open up the entire space. Everything from the new solid oak flooring, porcelain tiles floors in our entryway and kitchen, our fabulous new fireplace, to our new kitchen cabinets and island with quartz countertop, ceiling pot lights, new plumbing, and our amazing honeycomb tile backsplash was installed professionally.
The work was done on schedule and on budget. And even though we asked for some major add-ons midway through the project, including a new staircase railing for both the ground floor and basement stairs and new sliding glass doors, the team was able to finish everything within the original schedule.
Natanael would meet with us every week (sometimes even more often) and go over everything that was completed that week, and would explain what would happen during the next phase – all of which was outlined in the detailed work agreement and payment schedule.
Like any large renovation, not everything goes exactly to plan, but when we hit any road bumps (like major plumbing leaks that were hidden in the family room ceiling and walls, or when the location of the range hood on the wall of our kitchen wasn’t correct in the IKEA design and was off centre on the actual wall) Natanael would go away and always come back with great solutions. His entire team was courteous and friendly and a pleasure to work with.
While we were ecstatic to have our new main floor done on time and looking sensational, by the end of the renovation, we were actually sad to have to say goodbye to Natanael (his laughter is infectious) and his workers, who always went above and beyond in their work.
Natanael was at our house nearly every day during the renovation and actually installed the flooring and kitchen cabinets himself. An expert with Ikea kitchen cabinets, he planned out the best way to make the most of the space we had and customize the layout to our taste (for example, I ordered a pullout spice rack cabinet from Amazon and Natanael incorporated it into the wall of IKEA cabinets and it looks amazing.)
We can’t wait for Natanael and his team to return so they can tackle our next project to completely renovate out upstairs bathrooms.
