House Reno

We purchased a house in Toronto and wanted to do a near-complete reno before moving in (full gut of bottom floor, removing structural walls and installing a 30 foot steel beam, 2 complete bathrooms, kitchen, full hardwood floors through the house, redo electrical due to knob and tube etc.). We reached out to 4 contractors on HomeStars and ended up choosing Damian Lindsay of Lindsay Contracting. It was a very easy decision for us.

Of the 4 quotes we received Damian was by far the most professional, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He showed up on time, with a camera and notepad and we walked through the house discussing what we wanted. He came back with a detailed itemized quote, a large list of references (which all checked out) and a reasonable price. In contrast the other contractors showed up with nothing and threw out random prices which were far too low (and not realistic) or 2x higher than what it actually cost us, and were quite rude.

Throughout the process Damian was available and was always up to speed on our project. He was available to speak at any time and to meet at the house to review the project and any changes. His team was also friendly and knowledgeable. If there were any issues he was helpful in making suggestions, especially when we didn't know which way to go.

Overall, given the horror stories we had heard involving reno stories, we couldn't have been more relieved to have found Damian as he was terrific in helping relieve the stress involved in a reno of this scale. We recommend him to family and friends and will be using him again in the future.

Bathroom renovation & Living/dining room ceiling repair

Wow what a transformation!! I had a complete bathroom renovation and repair to the living and dining room ceiling, which had badly "scared" popcorn type finish. It was replaced and crown moulding installed. ..Awesome job by Damien and the crew, a very professional and friendly group, who kept me informed every step of the way. The team ran into unforeseen obstacles with the bathroom reno, which were resolve in a timely manner.
I would definitely refer them to anyone who was looking for a renovation contractor! They'll be my team in the future!

Bathroom renovation

Damian and his team have done two renovation projects for us. The first was our main floor including the removal of a load bearing wall and bathroom. This second project was framing and tiling a basement standing shower. Damian's team did an outstanding job! I don't think I could like it any better. I really appreciate that Damian asked us questions about details throughout the process, so we got exactly what we wanted. They also did this project quickly and disposed of all garbage.

We have completed substantial renovations in our home and have had many trades in and out. However, Damian's team ranks #1 for professionalism and quality of work.

Commercial Property Renovation

Had a terrific experience with Lindsay Contracting Inc. They renovated a commercial property for my business and it turned out better than I ever could have hoped for. At the estimate Damian took his time to listen to my vision and to offer his own insights and recommendations. He offered more economical solutions where appropriate and didn't ever compromise the quality of the work. The renovations were completed as per Damian's estimate and according to the timeline he suggested. I highly recommend Lindsay Contracting Inc and will be using them for any renovations or work I need done in the future.

Full bathroom renovation

We need a full gut and rebuild of a bathroom last renovated in the 70s and chose Lindsay Contracting based on a recommendation from a friend. It was a wise decision. Damian and his team were fantastic at every step of the way. Damian communicated with us very well and took time to explain things and give us options on how to overcome certain unforseen challenges. The work itself was top notch, with great attention to detail and a deep knowledge of their craft. We're very happy with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend Damian and his team to anyone who needs professional work done on their home.

Bathroom Renovation

Lindsay Contracting Company was hired to renovate a bathroom in my duplex that was built in 1930. In the construction of a brand new bathroom, old copper cemented plumbing was removed and a new leveled ceiling and bathroom floor was built. Damian and his team were also extremely helpful in suggesting specific stores for purchasing plumbing fixtures, tiles, as well as with ideas to truly modernize the small space. Although there were some challenges because of the age of the house, the work was completed in less than a month and I am extremely happy with the results.

Porch Rebuilt

Damian and his team rebuilt our porch using Trex composite wood. This was the third job we've had him do and again, we're really happy with the results. Throughout the process, communication was top-notch. A couple of surprises came up because of the material and Damian was great at hearing what we'd like and making those choices a reality. I've already recommended Lindsay Contracting to friends and would to anyone reading this review.

Getting a home move-in ready: kitchen, bathroom, electrical, lighting, exterior work

Damian and his team of professionals are an outstanding choice for your project!

We recently purchased a home and needed to get it move-in ready in a timely manner. We got several quotes and Damian’s was the most comprehensive, price competitive and he was firmly committed to our tight timeline. We were really impressed with Damian and his whole team of professionals who worked on the project. For instance, when we opened up a wall, we saw some unexpected blockages, and Damian’s team collaborated with us and they worked extra long hours and weekends to create an effective solution and get us back on track with our timeline. Damian went above and beyond to ensure the details behind each work item were properly addressed, and he kept updating us which we greatly appreciated. It was a great pleasure working with Damian and we will definitely be working with him again on future projects. Thank you Lindsay Contracting!

Additional bedroom, double-door installation and two closets created for the basement.

Damian from Lindsay Contracting Inc. is a true professional and a man of his word. After first assessing my needs, he was able to provide me with a timely estimate as I needed to create a new bedroom for rental purposes. His estimate clearly laid out all of the work involved and the price was fair compared to his competitors. Once the job started, his crew managed to complete the work in a few short days. I was very happy that they left the work site clean as if no one ever worked there. Damian made sure I was pleased with the work and addressed any minor issues before requesting me to submit my final payment. I would highly recommend Lindsay Contracting and will definitely Damian close for any future construction needs.

Bathroom renovation

After meeting with multiple contractors we found that Damian from Lindsay Contracting gave us that "warm and fuzzy" feeling we were looking for. As well as being quite personable, the level of communication he provided was on point. He kept us informed of when to expect the various trades and when decisions from us needed to be made. As far as scheduling, Damian was able to work around the various delivery dates of our custom cabinetry and countertop with no problems and we experienced little "wait time" during the whole process.

Now on to the actual work results.....we had contracted for a complete gut job of our 8 x 8 bathroom but still retained the existing footprint. While we did not have major mold problems hiding behind the walls we did however need the walls and ceiling to be squared up and the existing plumbing needed to be adjusted to now fit with our open vanity. Living through a somewhat major renovation is not a fun experience but the folks from Lindsay Contracting made it as easy and clean as possible. The final result of our now beautiful bathroom was because of the hard work by these folks (and good design choices by us ha!ha!).

As for costing.....we had purchased all the main elements that were installed however Lindsay Contracting handled the purchase of all construction materials so the costing referenced above was primarily the labour and construction material costs only.

We would use them again.....they work hard to make you happy by doing a good job.

As a P.S....on completion of our bathroom project, we also had the tradesman from Lindsay Contracting correct some tiling issues in our other bathroom.
