Taras and his team just finished our renovation on our house and we can't say enough about how incredible he is to work with. No one can believe how seamless the renovation was and how happy we were with all aspects, and this was in no small part because of Taras. For context, the scope of our project was a full main floor gut of a 120 year old Leslieville Victorian semi.
We found Taras through Homestars, and met with him a few times before deciding. We got a good feeling from him but it was seeing his relationship and speaking with a former client that sealed the deal for us. I would recommend doing the same.
As for the project, he wrapped up ahead of the schedule he promised, right on budget, and the workmanship far surpassed our expectations. I'm a very detail oriented person, and Taras, Terry and Mark would re-do things that I could see no problem with because they take such great pride in a perfect finished product. We had some very tricky aspects because of the age of our house, but they were always motivated by the challenge and never ever complained. They put a substantial amount of extra work and materials in to make sure our house was safe and the finishes were perfect, and there was never any fuss made about extra cost.
Taras only does one job at a time, which means he is there in person, all day, every day. This is incredibly valuable for 2 reasons. It gave us great peace of mind knowing he would be there when any other trades or delivery people came through. He really took care of the house for us like it was his own. The other benefit is that he wants to finish the project on time as much as you do. He's very experienced so you can put stock in any timelines he gives you.
Finally, and probably most importantly, Taras, Terry and Mark are some of the nicest guys I have ever met. They are extremely patient, honest, and genuine. I'm sure you'll be as thrilled as we were with the entire process and the finished product if you work with Double T.
