Full Home Renovation

I did a whole home reno of my two bedroom 1 1/2 story home, floorboards to studs, basement to attic. The design help totally achieved my wishes and ideas while adding loads of practical advice. The construction phase was really good. There were a few minor errors, which were fixed without question or time wasting. There were all the usual surprises, to the tune of nearly $15,000 yet Colin was able to find sufficient savings and room in his budget to make the final cost under 3% over, while maintaining the overall vision He took on additional challenges cheerfully, AND he finished on time.

There is nothing more I could have asked for: on time, effectively under budget, and willing, kind and helpful contractors and sub-trades. The after-care of those things which have come up has been terrific too.

Basement Renovation (from Undeveloped)

Very satisfied with this basement development. Had an undeveloped basement (house built 2014). I consulted with several vendors before choosing Tay-ky and did LOTS of research. Was referred to Tay-ky via a positive referral from a friend. Positive experience with Colin, Brenden, and the sub-contractors. Tay-ky was also competitive with price (in fact the most competitive) and still managed to create a high-quality space that I'm proud of.
What: I wanted to create an open home theater and dance rehearsal space. Process with Colin and Bonnie went smoothly, required some clarifications (I am very detailed). I definitely recommend Tay-ky Developments for any such work. Colin took the time to plan creation of the space and how to frame the walls (there was low ceiling plumbing that needed a workaround). Had to put up 2 walls to separate the space from: 1) the furnace and back storage room 2) the water meter reader room. As a dancer, Colin arranged the installation of a mirror on one wall so that I can use it as a rehearsal space. I asked for an entertainment cabinet as I don't want to build one on my own. I have a home theater projector that I wanted to put on the ceiling, but I didn't want it to be a permanent solution (which is what a regular ceiling mount is), so Colin created a projector tray hung from the ceiling where I can put my projector on, but also can remove it and take it elsewhere when I want to. Floor is Winchester Plywood Blue Pine. Work was done on time as scheduled (though I wasn't in any rush). The work proceeded without any hiccups and I love my new basement!
Helpful Note: They accept MasterCard however charge a 2% "convenience" fee. I get 1.5% cashback when I use my credit card and was planning to use this to help finance. But had to go with cheque. I understand why such a fee is charged (at least Bonnie tried to explain to me).
Helpful Note: Invoices come from Bonnie, who isn't at the house meetings (just Colin), so sometimes information/costs get incorrectly translated to the invoice. Was able to clarify with Bonnie and Colin when this happened, and have the invoice corrected without any issues.

We wanted to renovate all 3 of our bathrooms as well as patching some ceiling damage in 2 separate rooms. When Bonnie came out to estimate the job I knew I had found someone who wasn't into trying to intimidate me. (Which I had felt during 3 other estimate interviews). I knew I could work with her but needed to figure out if I could also work with Colin. He is like a young Mike Holmes. He does excellent work, as do all the people who work with and for him. Especially Richard. When a glitch happened (as it always will), Colin was there and I learned I could trust him to fix it. This was huge as I tend to be a perfectionist. I had finally found someone who had higher standards than I do and this meant that the stress level was much decreased for the Reno. The results of the work are great and Colin's suggestions along the way made them better than I would have imagined. Richard's willingness to go the extra mile so I would be pleased was a huge gift. When we needed light bulbs that would work with the dimmer on the light fixture Richard trialled different bulbs till we found some that worked. That meant extra trips to suppliers for him and it was great to not be the one trying to find a solution.
All of the sub trades were excellent.
The only frustration came as a result of communication gaps that I think occurred because the company is growing so fast. It was more an irritation than a problem as Colin continued to fix any problems and that simply reinforced our belief that we can really trust him and that is priceless!
I know that any future renovations will be done by Colin!

Window and Door Trim replacement --front of home

We are very grateful for the awesome work done by Tayky Developments on the front of our home! The owner went above and beyond to ensure this small project was completed in a timely fashion and the work was done to perfection. With some slow starts (the people working with Colin were 'no shows'), Colin came to the rescue. He has a strong work ethic and commitment to his clients. Thanks for the great job!

Deck and Fence

Colin was conscientious in the work that he did for us with our deck and fence. As it was a brand new house the ground hadn't completely settled and he even came back to fix the gate that had sunk! Comes highly recommended as long as he does the work. found that his Trainee was not as contentious but Colin fixed all the problems as soon as he saw them and used them as a training moment for the help.
