Total Infill Reno

Rectangle did a fabulous job. We did a 3 floor, down-to-the-studs renovation of our 1990s infill. Rectangle helped reorient our main floor to make it a better use of space – focusing on where we spend our time (the kitchen!) and giving the overall look and feel of all three floors an update. They had creative solutions, listened to our preferences and helped to create an effective and efficient design. Rectangle came in on budget and on time. Any issues that we had during the process were managed through direct and fair communication. We were happy with the quality of the work and really love the end result.

Full House 'to the studs' reno

We did a full 'to the studs' reno on an original 1959 house with Rectangle. It was a great experience. They were professional, had great design advice, were on time and extremely responsive when there were hiccups (even on weekends!). We would definitely hire them again!

Great Contractor !

I have worked as an HVAC sub-trade for Rectangle Design for the past 9 years. The Rectangle team have great co-ordinating skills with all the sub-trades which really helps the project move smoothly and helps us all to do our job well and stay on schedule. I work for a lot of builders and renovators and it is real nice to work for a contractor as organized as Rectangle Design.

Full home reno

We did a complete reno with Rectangle and only have amazing things to say about their process, their people and their product. They were on time, on budget and a real pleasure to work with along the way. They helped us make our house a home and if we ever reno again, would use them in a heartbeat.

New Inner City House Build

We built a large, inner city home with Shane and his team in 2015.

We worked closely with Rectangle throughout the process and were impressed by how candid and straightforward our interactions with Shane and team were. Rectangle was quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had, regardless of day or time. They hold themselves to a high standard for their clients, and we encountered this time and time again during the course of our build.

Rectangle also came up with the design concept for our home, and we are very happy with their vision. Natural light is always streaming into our house, and the finishes are classic and will stand the test of time. Our space is modern and will adapt seamlessly with our family as it grows. We get endless compliments on our home when friends come to visit, and Rectangle gets all the credit for their hard work.

Shane and team are very dedicated to their clients. If we build a second time, we will definitely work with Rectangle again . 12/10 - we highly recommend!

Rectangle were great

The team at Rectangle listened to what we wanted and came up with a great plan. We took a 1950's bungalow and converted it into a modern two story home. They truly care about what they do and how the customer feels about the project and will absolutely go that extra mile to make sure that the customer is satisfied. We love our home and would absolutely recommend using Rectangle.

Kitchen / Family Room Renovation

It has been 3 years since the completion of our renovation and we are still happy we went with Rectangle. Everything is perfect after all this time and it looks that same as it did three years ago.

I made the mistake of going with another company on a more recent renovation...I will not do that again. I kick myself every day for not using Rectangle. I guess you learn from your mistakes.

I would recommend Shane and Rectangle on any future job you may do.

Complete Reno of 4 Level Split

When we made the decision to purchase an older home, we new we wanted to have it completely renovated. We researched a few companies and was impressed with the design of Rectangle.

We read all the reviews on this very website Homestars so we decided to work with Rectangle and was very excited to get started.

We had no doubts based on the reviews, they have great design and excellent quality however we must have drew the short straw when our project manager was assigned to us.

Without getting into all the details these are the issues we had, some of the general issues we had are:

1) We felt we had to follow up with the PM to frequently to ensure that everything was completed as expected.
2) I believe there were additional expenses that could have been avoided if the PM was on the ball
3) We must of have had a rookie plumber as we had issues with the plumbing fixtures in every room, either leaking, no cold water, no hot water, installed internal components backwards etc.
4) Final year end warranty walk-through - absolutely no contact or follow up from Rectangle to schedule the walk through as they said they would.

Either way, we aren't totally disappointed with the end result, in fact we love it. However, I would have expected a project manager that had more experience that did not require someone to followup on a daily basis with them.

Do we like their design: Absolutely
Do we like their customer server: Absolutely not

If you get a good project manager, I'm sure you will be happy with the end results, however based on our personal experience, we just can't recommend them, unless you feel like being the PM yourself.
