Lee and his colleague installed a large wall-to-wall PAX closet unit in our bedroom. They added the necessary trim, worked the baseboards and door and window sills and with with finicky uneven floors, to make the whole thing look like a high-end built in unit. We love it. Highly recommended.

We used LS Kitchen Specialist for our kitchen renovation, which included removal of the old kitchen, design and installation of a new kitchen, laying of a new tile floor and some electrical work.

From the design stage through to the completion of our kitchen renovation, Lee was a pleasure to work with. Work, including custom work, was carried out on time, within the estimated time-frame, and with no hidden extras or costs.

The quality of workmanship was extremely high, and we very impressed by the finished installation.

Construction mess was kept to such a low level that even our neighbours commented on how clean and tidy Lee and his workers were. We would recommend LS Kitchen Specialist without hesitation.

It was a pleasure working on your project. I enjoy seeing a project from the design all the way to the installation; a master piece comes to life with the help of my team. We are really committed to customer satisfaction through fair treatment of their home, respect to our clients and handling waste efficiently, so there is very little disruption to the client and their neighbours.

Lee and his team did an amazing job! I hired Lee to plan our Ikea kitchen and the results are outstanding. He provided me with some great design solutions to maximize the space, and took our family needs into consideration. Our project involved a complete re-design, flooring, plumbing and electrical. Lee and his team are very professional. He is super organized and completed the job on time and on budget. My guests cannot believe it's an Ikea kitchen and always comment on the quality of work.

I would not hesitate to hire Lee again, and would highly recommend him for your kitchen projects!

It great to see that it is recognized and appreciated.

The kitchen was gutted and ready to go. We've contacted Lee and he gave us an estimate. When he came to see the project he was very knowledgeable and quickly figured out were things need to go. He was experienced with any adjustment that needed to be made and customizations. I would definitely recommend them.

Very clean work, put cardboard protection on the floors and made no mess. Very happy with the results.

We were very happy with the work that Lee and his team did for us. For our kitchen, we had Lee replace our backsplash, sink and build us a new counter/bar using an Ikea system. We were very happy with his suggestion of adding shelving to the counter in order for the Ikea system to fit over the old space. His input on how big the quartz countertop should be was very helpful to make sure it worked with our small condo space and still be functional. We also had Lee install an Ikea Pax closet system for us which required him to extend our wall to cover up the open space near our ceiling so the Pax system wouldn't be visible on the other side of the wall. They did a great job with the dry walling for this and you can't even tell there used to be an open space there. He also built us extra shelving in the closet to make the Pax system fit into our existing closet. The third thing we had Lee and his team fix was to replace our bathroom vanity, install a lighted mirror and new lighting in our shower which they did a great job with. We even asked him last minute to replace the grouting in our bathtub and they were able to do this for us with no delay. Lee was great at communicating with us daily, always on time and finished on time everyday. We appreciated that they would leave the place as tidy as can be since we were still living there during renos. He finished the project on time as promised even a bit earlier than quoted. Overall we were very happy with his services and would definitely recommend him to our friends and family!

The experience with Lee was professional from end-to-end. He turned our 1950s kitchen to a sexy contemporary space. He was on time all the time, and there were no surprises on the cost. He was busy and we waited a few months before the project began, but he's definitely worth the wait. Highly recommended! Thanks a bunch Lee :)

We found LS Kitchens on HomeStars, and are so glad that we did. What we loved about working with Lee was his attention to detail, and desire to build a kitchen that he is proud of. We were really impressed with his ideas, and ended up with a much better kitchen than we had originally planned. Our kitchen had a lot of challenges. But Lee was up to the task, and delivered beyond our expectations.

Lee is also very considerate of our time and schedule, and was respectful to our family.

Several contractors that came in to do other work for us all remarked at how impressive Lee's installation was. A couple even asked for his contact info.

We're so very thankful to have worked with Lee, and would easily use him again, or recommend him to our friends and family.

Lee Sanchez is an amazing professional. From the first time we met him to the last day he left our place, Lee did a spectacular job. His crew and himself were professionals and considerate of our house. Lee and crew are diligent / responsible and on time. I've had previous contractors who were not as considerate of the rest of the house. Lee's crew took the time to prep the whole house to make sure no other damage happened while they did our kitchen. Within a 2 week turn around, lee was able to transform our dated 1980's kitchen to nice modern kitchen. I would definitely hire him again for my next house. You aren't going to find a better contractor than Lee. When it comes to Lee, you're in good hands.
