Plumbing, Drywall, Siding, painting, several small jobs

So pleased with Ben Ross Home Services. Keith makes sure he sends professionals to get the jobs done. Have used several times in the past. No hidden fees. If something no quite right he gets it fixed asap. I highly recommend Ben Ross for your renovations, large and small. Have just hired them again for another small job.

Bathroom shower

Have a rental suite that was recently purchased and renovated. Shower was leaking when used. Keith and his team were quick to respond and fix. We discussed options and best path forward. Everything was done as expected with professionalism. Super great experience!!

Townhouse Reno

We were thrilled with everything that Keith and the Benross gang did for us. Great workmanship, timely, and everyone is pleasant and easy to get along with. Have used Keith, for second project, and will use him for the 3rd.

Closet Alterations

I just want to thank the entire team at Benross Home Services very much for the great work that was done! All of our interactions with Keith, Lee, Anne, and Mike were great experiences. We had just bought a new home and the turn around time ended up being a lot quicker than expected. We were also getting carpet work done in our house so we needed the alterations to be done on a very specific timeline. They were able to accommodate this timeline, which was a huge relief to us. Lee, who met us for the consultation was great and very knowledgeable. The work that Mike did was awesome. Not only did he do what was requested, he also ended up fixing a small problem that we didn't even know we had, he saved us some money by re-using some materials where he could, and his attention to detail even on the little things that we didn't even consider was awesome! Keith was great at checking in and making sure that everything was done to what we expected. Having never used a contractor before this was a great first time experience. We definitely will use you guys again and recommend to anyone who asks! Thanks Again!

Ceiling repair

I've used Benross on two seperate occasions for our previous home. In both instances, the workers were efficient, friendly and cleaned up after the work was completed. That is too bad a previous poster had a bad experience with Benross - I can only say nice things about Keith and his team.

On the first job, Kavan had to fix a leak in our bathroom ceiling. Once the leak was fixed, he re-textured the ceiling and even got the colour to match the surrounding areas.

On the second job, Benross' guy was able to fix an electrician's faulty wiring, properly adjust a ceiling fan and install a new lighting fixture. - All of which should have been completed by the home builder as we were within the first year of posession.

Full Bathroom Renovation, New Electrical Panel and Potlights, Interior Doors, Drywall, Paint

From the moment Aaron came to estimate our renovation, we knew this was the company we would trust to do our work. Keith and Aaron and their staff were professional, knowlegdeable and hard working. They did everything they could to accommodate our wants and needs. We could always get Keith or Aaron by cell or email immediately if we had any questions or concerns. The contractors they brought in were all top notch professionals. The work was done in a timely manner (even when we added projects unexpectedly) and the entire team always treated our home, our family and our pets with nothing but respect. If you are looking for a renovator that puts hard work and integrity first, then you should call Benross Home Services. They take great pride in doing the best job possible. We will not hesitate to call Keith and Aaron for any future needs and we highly recommend Benross to our family and friends.

Thanks very much Keith, Aaron and staff:))))) We truly appreciate all your hard work.

Design/build garage storage mezzanine and insulate/poly/drywall & tape garage interior

Dear Benross Homes Services Ltd. team,

We were so impressed with your company’s services in the design and construction of our new storage mezzanine and other scope of work to improve our attached garage. Your team’s smart and creative design has untapped and maximized the storage potential of our otherwise cavernous, high ceiling garage. I first met Keith and Aaron when they took the time to meet to discuss a proposal for an extensive renovation project on a home that we were looking to purchase; we wound up purchasing a different home that better suited our needs and didn’t require major renos. Keith and Aaron left a lasting impression after our introductory meeting, and I knew right off the bat that this was the company that I would hire whenever I needed work done in the future—sure enough, only months later did we make the call to Benross Homes Services when were exploring options for creating additional storage space in our home.

Your company has a highly admirable, personalized level of service and care that is a rare find and a pleasure to experience. Keith and Aaron were great to work with throughout the process, and were always available/accessible throughout the project if we had any questions or simply to check in on work progress.

The experience we had in working with your team left me feeling proud to pass your name along to anyone that I know needing the services of a general contractor. I will definitely be calling you again the next time that we need any work done, from minor to major home renovations.

Thank you for understanding the true meaning of a great customer service experience. You guys have it figured out—never lose that unique quality; it’s what separates you from the competition!

I have absolute trust and faith in your team, and I look forward to referring your services to others and sharing the story of our experience in working with you.

Sincere regards,

Kevin & Jenny Morgans

Door jam repair

Keith McTaggart, Owner/President responded to my concerns - refunded the original call out fee, installed my new door and restored my faith in contractors. I consider the first contact an unfortunate misunderstanding - and the follow-up by Keith and his staff shows a lot of character. Thanks for making this right!

While returned from an unscheduled trip out of town to discover I had been a victim of a B& E and garage vandalism...

I really appreciated the prompt response provided but the cost was high for such a temporary repair - the price would seem to be for a new door not a temporary fix. I wanted to be able to lock the door when I returned to work. .... when I mentioned these concerns amongst others the response was that although I "may be replacing the door soon, but I believe his repair to be more than temporary." Really? the door is covered with adhesive and I need to slam it to close it, the lock sticks... if this is acceptable as a permanent repair, we do live in different worlds. Also - they charge a processing fee for using a method of payment that they advertise as one they accept. Because I had not read the agreement or signed a contract I did authorize the charge. However, my concerns did not change and I will not use this company again.

Upon review, it is my belief that this customer has some legitimate concerns. They will be addressed. We intend to present a scenario to this customer which we hope will put their concerns to rest.

Thank you Dianne, for giving us the opportunity to put this right.

Bathroom Demo

Bathroom demo completed on time. Ben Ross subbed work to another contractor who was not given the complete scope of reno work and therefore did not complete all of work. We therefore short paid the contractor as work was not completed as per specified in writing.
Quality of work issues arose (product not installed as per specifications) and company would not repair unless we meet to pay for the work not initially completed.
Had used company previously with good results but obviously too busy to ensure on going quality control

Company Response

This customer wrongly asummes that we would ever charge extra for incomplete or substandard work.Or that we would not do all we could to fix any problem. They did not give me a chance to meet with them at which time I had every intention of making right the issues at hand. It is also important for me to put forward that I did not subcontract this job but gave the job to a tile contractor whom this customer paid directly. I tried only to act as a liason and help each party get the desired result. This obviously backfired on me. Not only have I not received a penny for this, I am also "on the hook" to pay the tile contractor the balance owing (about $370). He did exactly as I outlined in my emailed estimate. The fact that this estimate did not correspond exactly to this customers to do list, was my oversight which I was more than willing to be accountable for. Had I been given the opportunity, we would not be here now. It's a difficult business to be sure folks! If only we weren't human..
