My wife and I last renovated 10 years ago, and our infill house was starting to show wear again and we decided our house needed a refresh. We reviewed Homestars for potential contractors in July / August 2017 and selected four contractors for bids. Of the four contractors we chose Lifestyle Renovations & Construction. Greg’s price quote was reasonable, well itemized as we’d requested, and we appreciated that Greg had asked a number of questions and provided suggestions to achieve our renovation goals.
Our original renovation goals were revised significantly however when my wife and I were told our jobs would be eliminated, mine in fall 2017 and my wife’s in mid-2018. Greg worked with us as we reviewed significant changes to our original scope of work and broke the work down into several steps, as we lived in our house throughout the renovation.
Work started the second week of November and was completed a week before Christmas. Broken down by floors the work entailed:
- Upper floor (all): repaint ceilings, walls, trim, and doors and windows; refinish staircase handrails; trim bedroom doors to fit.
- Main floor (all): repaint ceilings, walls, trim, doors and windows; remove and replace tile backsplash from kitchen and buffet backsplash, replace plumbing fixtures in kitchen and bathroom.
- Basement (bathroom only): repaint bathroom walls and trim and replace bathroom plumbing fixtures.
Greg and his team worked regularly and the work moved along at a planned pace and there was communication throughout the renovation.
We are satisfied with the outcome - the work was done on time and on budget, and we would recommend Lifestyle Renovations to others.
