We lived in a 60 year old house with a tiny kitchen and a main floor with many dividing walls that made it difficult even to put a proper size dining table. We wanted to have an open space concept mainfloor with a big kitchen connected to the living room. That means we have to take down many walls and gutting the whole floor. We interviewed many contractors. We connected with Simon Wong of S&G through word of mouth and decided to hire him for the following reasons:
Clear and detailed contract
After an onsite meeting with Simon and his designer/partner Alan, a clear, itemized contract was layout. All the work task and specs of all materials were listed very clearly. The pricing is honest and open.
Simon and Alan are very experienced in whole home renovation. From cabinetry to flooring, plumbing, electrical to gas line. They handle it all under one umbrella. There is no need to deal with different suppliers and tradesman. I only need to talk to Simon, my project manager and he takes care of all the logistic. Every step along the way, Simon would speak to me about different choices of finish or certain design preferences. In general, I only needed to know when to move out and when to move back in.
Quality and Pricing
While not the cheapest contractor in down, I found S&G has an excellent quality to pricing ration. We had custom cabinetry in the kitchen and bedroom. It's all custom designed to any style and layout I want. The spray paint finish, the railing, hinges are all high quality. Even the slide out garbage can included under sink was made in Italy. All workmanship is top notch, all the floor tiles grout lines were supper straight. There were not rough cut edges or awkward gaps anywhere, not even inside the drawers or in some tucked under corners. We received many compliments on our kitchen and bedroom cabinetry. The marble shower stall with curved ceiling was a piece of art.
It's been almost 5 years and everything is holding fine. That's why I am very glad to contribute a review and I'd recommend S&G.
