This past summer, we decided it was time for a full basement renovation.
A & R Renovations had done a stellar job of our main floor and upstairs 5 years earlier, so we decided to go with them again.

Our goal was to take our unfinished 'ancient' basement and create a family room, laundry room, second bathroom and storage room, while rerooting plumbing, adding new HVAC, and a new high efficiency furnace, and waterproofing the exterior walls.

The project began on time and we immediately saw progress. Alex was always there on time and worked diligently throughout the day, while coordinating all aspects of the project and communicating with us on everything. He worked to minimize the amount of time we were out of the house, and provided us with advise and recommendations as we decided on finishes, fixtures and more.

The end result greatly exceeded our expectations. We couldn’t be happier! We have a lovely space for our family that I am still blown away by every time I see it! The project ended on time, on budget and we would gladly use A & R Renovations on any future projects! Thank you Alex and A&R Renovations for your dedication and expertise!

As an interior designer, it's crucial for me to work with contractors who are professional (both in our working relationship and in how they present to my clients), clear in their quotation, competitively priced, good at communicating, and deliver quality work. Alex checks all the boxes. He is flexible with change orders, always pointing out where there's an increment in cost and where there isn't. His work is excellent. He is pleasant to work with and on point and timely with his communications. I look forward to working with Alex on many more projects to come.

Alex is very professional and did a great job on our complete kitchen makeover. He came day after day and did not work on other projects at the same time- which makes a huge difference in service and shortens the time it takes to complete the renovation. We would definitely recommend Alex and will use him again in the future.

We found Adrian on this website and were lucky enough to have him fit in our renovation on such short notice which consisted in a full build up hair salon,full basement and main floor.
We had a very tight deadline to complete the work. Adrian and his team ensured that not only was everything completed ahead of schedule but also with the highest of quality, attention to detail and excellent communication as to what was being done and when. Even when faced with small unexpected issues Adrian remained calm and professional and offered alternatives and much appreciated suggestions. And never once did his initial quote change.
Adrian is definitely a rare find - very fair, honest and a pleasure to work with. We have already recommended him to friends and will continue to do so. He will be our go to guy for any future work.
The end result exceeded our expectations and we are so happy we decided to go with Adrian.The posted pictures speak for them self's.THANK YOU ADRIAN !!!!and your lovely team!!!!

The renovation went very smoothly, He showed up on time through out the renovation. He was always courteous and explained what was going on if we had any questions. He always cleaned up at the end of the day and explained what he was going to do the next day. I was very satisfied with the work done by A and R Renovations.

Blackmail and bullying is the best way to summarize our experience. Please call me at 416 697 2643, I'll provide pictures and documentation from contractors who fixed all his issues. This is not something we typically do, but now that the project is complete and we have contacted a lawyer, I feel it's our duty to make sure others don't have to go through the same horror we did. We originally found Alex on this site and will never use it again based on our awful experience.

I'll save everyone a long read. But here is a quick summary.

Alex threatened to leave the job the first time out of 5 - 3 days into the project after giving me the extras bill, which we had agreed to no extras without discussing - all of which were core project or gauging. More importantly he already had 80% of the money. We have 2 small children and had no leverage at the time and were living in the midst of a full Reno.

3 of 5 contractors (90 % of work) Alex had never met prior to the project. They all introduced themselves to me when they arrived. His labourer was his nephews friend who he had never done work with before. Alex uses a recruiting service for trades and has none of his own contacts. The ones he did have were just as terrible as he was.

He advertises himself as a G C - but refused to provide his number. Because he isn't one.
He threatened to call the city and not return to complete the project if we didn't pay him in full for work not completed. He also tried to blackmail us to provide a reference on this site. Hence the link provided by him.

We paid him in full to get him out of our lives, 3k not including the cost to fix errors. It was well worth getting Alex out of our lives. We provided him proper notice to end a contract we paid in full (contract is a cut and paste of home depos) even though it wasn't completed and his response was he was going to call the city. He sent us a legal letter that we agree not to post to sites like this one and he is not liable for any work completed.

Everything Alex touched in our home is what we had to have fixed. He does not care about workmanship and does not even use a level. All the contractors that we had in to fix his awful work repeatedly commented on the awful work he had done in our home. All he cares about is a good review and pictures. We have to be reminded of the money we wasted and the horrifying experience he put us through on a daily basis.

Not only is Alex unapproachable and a bully he his litigious and we expect his bullying to continue. 3 months after fixing all his issues and completing the project, we are now ready . We will update this post with all of Alex s next steps.

Do not hire him!!! If for some crazy reason you do - talk to people he has worked for and don't rely on these reviews only since he obviously manipulates and bullies people into writing good things.

Thank you for your review,
We strive to make all our customers happy and satisfied with the work we provide, however we apologize that you feel that standard was not achieved. Every story has two sides and it's only fair that I provide mine seeing as you're personally attacking my character and my company.
The blackmail and bullying you're referring to, is really greed on your part. That greed can make people have adverse reactions, as this review is something you considered 4 months after the project was only 90% completed. The incompletion being due to you signing a contract and not pertaining to it, putting a stop payment on the cheque (which is considered fraud and a criminal act), attacking and threatening me in your own home and me not wanting to provide anymore free extras . You suggested a third party mediator and my suggestion was a city inspector as a mediator who would inspect my work without bias from beginning to end.
If I had truly threatened to leave 3-5 days into the project, why would I have continued working on the jobsite for another month bringing the job to an almost full completion and send you a link for a review. The only point in time in which I stated I would be leaving is subsequent to you backing me against the wall, threatening and shouting profanity at me in front of all of my subcontractors. All of those subcontractors that I had previously done numerous jobs with, aside from one who I had hired due to my regular floor guy being unavailable. Who my labourers are in relation to me should be of no concern as the job was being done to code at all times.
Numerous times throughout the project, as you kept adding extras to be done (for free might I add), I had asked you to please read the contract (which is not a replica of the Home Depot contract) and the invoice which has the job description. If you had done so, many of these issues would not have risen.
We are a transparent company that has been around for 20 years providing great services to our customers through trust and liability. The allegations you make in this review are false and only have a hurtful intent. I have pictures , emails , text messages and documents to back up , picture of the work i provide for you are posted on this site . As for the availability of my licence and credentials, they are visibly posted on Trusted Pros for any browser to find with ease.

We had Alex from A&R Renovations remodel our main bathroom, enlarge our ensuite and turn our 4 bedroom house into a 3 bedroom. From start to finish Alex was hands on and accountable. Each morning at 7:15 am Alex would arrive and start work. The was no waiting around for other tradespeople to show up. Alex did 90 percent of the work himself and brought in guys to do our hardwood floor and tile in main bathroom. Both times Alex was there overseeing the work. Any issues we had were dealt with quickly and without complaint. If you’re looking for honest, skilled a tradesman who is accountable you should strong consider giving Alex a call.
