Exterior and Interior home renovation. Grading remediation, fixed roof issues, new decks and porches, new driveway, new electrical and refreshed living room, painted exterior

The Home Improvement Group sent us Aldo Leon as the Project Manager and he worked with us on design and build. He helped us achieve a home that was to our taste and budget. The house looks like new again and he helped us fix all home issues including crumbling porch, flooding garage, leaky roof and lack of outside electrical access. His team was incredibly hard working, respectful and provided quality work. The project was on budget, there were no surprises so estimates were done well. We went a bit over on completion time but weather was to blame for that, and overall it was still within reason. We are extremely pleased with how things turned out. Our friends and family are impressed with what was accomplished on the budget we had. We are enjoying the comforts of our old / new home. I have found the only people i'll be turning to for future work on our house. Thank you so much THIG for sending us Aldo, and for managing our account. You were very responsive to my inquiries, very reasonable and accommodating when it came to contracts and payments. Everyone did an excellent job!

Bathroom renovation

We have a 3-piece condo bathroom that needed updating. We replaced everything: bathtub, shower, vanity, toilet, tiles, bathroom fan, paint etc.

Overall the contractors were professional and we are satisfied with the work. Our project manager Ivan was very helpful and replied to our questions and concerns promptly. Although there were some initial issues with expired licenses, Ivan helped to sort these out before the project began.

The contractors and project manager were willing to accommodate all our requests, for example additional waterproofing and special grout composition.

On the negative side, the project ended up costing nearly twice the initial estimate ($15k instead of $9k) and took almost 4 weeks to complete instead of the originally estimated 1 week.

Hi Natalia,

Thank you for your review.
We are pleased to know that you are happy with the results of your project.
Please understand that when more work is added to the initial scope it does take more time to complete and of course the cost for labour and materials then increases as well.
Ivan really does go above and beyond for his clients to ensure that all of their requests have been met.
We hope to work with you again on your next home update.

Kind regards,

Melanie

Garage Repairs and renovation

My project was to tap, and paint the garage walls, and build some shelves and slat walls for storage. Also I needed help to remove the old shelves. I was satisfied with the work. I had Joe assigned to this project. He shows up on time, did a very good job, and come up with good ideas to improve storage in my garage. I look forward to working with the company again.

Kitchen renovation

Our kitchen was original from the 60s, with a perfect layout and dated red oak cabinets. The reno included the straight replacement of backsplash, quartz counter, flooring and refinishing the cabinets. We also replaced all appliances and sink and more significantly, opened a load bearing wall to create a sizeable breakfast peninsula with custom matching cabinetry underneath. I requested 10 quotes, received 5 estimates and followed up with 3 contractors before I decided on THIG. They were mid range among the 3 but our project manager Les diligently answered my many questions and the email eventually became a very detailed account of the scope and approach to the work. This frequent and clear communication carried on throughout the project and they stayed on the original budget and on schedule. Kriss was the lead contractor onsite and his professionalism and attention to detail made the experience both pleasant and worry free. He gained my trust in the first few days by the questions he asked and suggestions he made. Both Les and Kriss anticipated some small but noticeable improvements I had not thought of, demonstrating their care and pride for the work they want to deliver. They addressed every request for final touches prior painting and prior project conclusion. We had some worries about refinishing the cabinets instead of replacing them, but Fabio did a fabulous job, they looked brand new. The rest of the house was well protected from construction and Kris cleaned up at the end of each day giving us full use of the kitchen except for 2-3 days when the appliances were getting moved or fresh paint had just been applied. I would recommend them without reservation. Notes: the budget did not include appliances and some materials (flooring, tiles, electrical fixtures, new handles). I will send THIG before and after pictures so you may be able to request a visual reference for this review.

Urgent Plumbing Issue at Office

We had an urgent plumbing issue at our office washroom. Within minutes of contacting THIG, they set the ball rolling and got someone to look at the issue early the following morning. The person they sent was most courteous and professional in his work and the issue was resolved with utmost speed.

Luxury Baseboard Installation

I had the pleasure of working with Les and his very skilled team to install large 8" baseboards with accompanying cap and shoes for my entire 2,500 square home. Chris the tradesman was an absolute pleasure to work with and immensely skilled. The quality of the work far surpassed my expectations. Chris was courteous, punctual and above all else clean! Cutting baseboards is a messing business and he kept the work site pristine throughout the entire process. The attention to detail and skill was incredible. Corners were done with exact precision and the all the baseboards were finished seamlessly with caulking. It ended up taking a bit longer than expected but I was not charged more. Wonderful experience I will certainly use them again for whatever next project I may have.

Kitchen renovation

The team will be restructuring my kitchen walls, replacing existing cabinets, counters, flooring and lighting. Due to being in a condo, renos have not quite started yet. But drawings and staff sent to my home for prep work and taking measurements were very friendly and were able to answer any questions that I had. Overall, the attention to detail and overall service has been wonderful!
