rear addition and basement reno

we had been planning a renovation and addition for some time and had consulted with several contractors and architects about the job. We were introduced to Greening Homes web site by another client and sought them out at the spring home show. During our initial meeting with a company representative (MC) we found their environmental and businesses practices suited our needs much better than anyone we had met with previously.
Once we engaged Chris and Steven on our project all that we had hoped for came into practice. There suggestions, support and skill led to renovation we anticipated.
They were extremely amenable to our ideas which were new to them, including building an ICF structure, which it turns out they became quite proficient at. Steven (crew manager) attended a construction seminar on how to build with the chosen ICF product and met with the supplier to ensure everything would come off without a hitch. It did.
The Greening team also worked extremely well with our selected consultants on drawings and engineering as well as some additional structural items that they were not directly responsible for. This ensured a timely job and quality results.
Another plus for us is their billing practice, which is completely transparent. They do not offer a fixed price bid and this may be a giant hurdle for many clients but we appreciate the fact that you are billed as work progresses and you know that when change orders occur whether by choice or circumstance, that you will not be shorted on quality or materials as is the case when a fixed price bid runs into obstacles.
I would without hesitation recommend their work and professionalism.

Full home renovation

Greening Homes is the embodiment of the integrity of its owner, Chris Phillips. They not only completed our full home renovation on time and with exceptional care and skill, but we actually had money left over in our budget to do some extra work (a back patio). Their crew are conscientious and considerate, knowledgeable about green building and skilled. I would use them again and have already recommended them to friends who have told me they are so glad I did. These guys (and gals) are the real deal.

Adding a 3rd floor

I wanted to make a point to write a Review, I know how important it is to have the right Contracting Company when it comes to your home. If Greening Homes is a little more expensive then other Contracting Companies you have searched, let me assure you, they are worth every penny!!!! We would not have found another Company to have done a better job! They are very Proffessional and yet it is obvious they put their heart into the Job too. They do care about saving you money and communicate your options, their workers are not only highly qualified but very respectful while in your home. They completed the job within the timeline and our budget. They took down our Roof and built a whole new Support Structure for a 3rd floor, not just anyone can build a new Structure for another floor, they did an Excellent Job!!! We were so impressed with their workmanship, we wished we had enough money to have them complete the Interior.

We plan to build a house in the future, guaranteed we will be calling them back!!! Thank you Greening and all Staff!!! We miss having you around here too.
George and Maria.

Full home renovation

Greening Homes truly lives up to their slogan of “Renovations done responsibly.” They respected our budget limitations, encouraging us to reduce the initial scope of our plan to be more realistic. They also tracked our weekly progress against expenditures, and suggested opportunities for us to save money by performing labour ourselves when it was safe and reasonable to do so. They listened to our priorities and were helpful in maintaining the big picture focus on overall environmental impact, health implications of materials used, and energy efficiency. The crew was creative and flexible in terms of providing design recommendations, such as salvaging and re-using existing materials. The project manager went to bat with sub-contractors to oversee costs and maintain quality – we really felt that he worked for us, in our best interests. In the case of any mistakes or errors Greening Homes took responsibility immediately and offered appropriate compensation. They were very conscious of timeline considerations and worked hard to stick to their original prediction for completion. Communication was incredibly easy, with detailed daily email reports, in addition to phone calls and in-person meetings as needed. Overall we had a feeling of partnership; transparency in the entire process gave us confidence that their motivation was doing our renovation right, not maximizing profit.

Living room Renovation

After having our house renovated by the wrong company, we were fortunate enough to find Greening Homes Ltd. Their knowledge on green materials and building practicies was exceptional. They completed our renovation on time, they showed up when they said they would, when they left our place was spotless. They were extremly professional, and they finished the job on time and budget.

I will always reccomend this company to anyone renovating- they know what they're doing, and it helped put my mind at ease knowing I was getting the best green building materials and the builders that worked with the highest professionalism!
