New Garage Build

We hired Cain for a new garage build and overall we are fairly happy with everything. The end product looks great and Cain was professional and detailed throughout the whole process. He was able and willing to pivot when necessary while being courteous to our family in the process. Overall, Cain is highly recommended.

Garage Re-build

Cain Positano and his crew were awesome....the best experience we have ever had with a contractor. From the first meeting to the last clean up and contract finish, Cain was professional and communicated with us at every milestone and even in between. I understand that Cain hasw a background in project management and it was very evident in the execution of our garage re-build project. There were very few surprises and all issues that came up were quickly solved to our satisfaction.

We particularly appreciated Cain's communication style - direct, honest, and transparent. His skills in solving problems were excellent and we were also impressed that he participated every day in the work and was on the job site consistently. He was very particular about quality and he insisted on doing a few things over to meet his own high standards evern shen we suggested not bothering with a few of them.

In addition, we had other repairs/maintenance that he was willing to assist with; but obviously outside of the scope of the project. We highly recommend OESC Home Renovations.

Main floor renovation, entire kitchen, hardwood, moulding and pot lights

This was a big job with multiple components. Cain's budget was very reasonable and he worked with me to find economic solutions that kept me on budget. He was very efficient, skilled and honest with his advice and helped us work through a number of challenges that came up without adding to our bottom line even though the solutions meant more of his time. He is direct and honest which is very rare - I have already recommended him for several other jobs.

Doors, carpentry, shower, lighting, fencing, vanity

I have used Cain for 3 major projects on our 'renovated' home. I was impressed by the work he did for a neighbour and we were needing to do some lighting updates, crown moulding, new front door, closet doors, change a vanity, rebuild a 2 person shower stall, a built-in cabinet and fence repair/build. I have found Cain to be thorough in his work, explaining why/why not we should do something and being respectful of our home by cleaning up at the end of the day. He was extremely patient with surprises in the old shower and very reasonable in rectifying the additional labour requirement. I also found him to be very ethical in his recommendations. Cain agreed to install a vanity we purchased at a national retailer at a great price. At the point of install he told us that while he had installed it for a previous client, after only 6 months of limited use the veneer was peeling. He referred me to a local supplier and I found exactly what we were looking for. I could trust him with the keys to our home without concern and he consistently followed up to ensure everything was working as planned. I highly recommend Cain and will use him again for any future work.

3 piece bathroom and flooring

Cain carried out two renovation projects in our basement, very successfully, efficiently, on budget and on time . The first project was the bathroom. This involved removing the old shower stall, toilet and sink, as well as relocating the heating duct, rewiring, and replacing one of the bathroom walls due to wood rot. The drain pipes in the concrete bathroom floor also had to be replaced due to serious deterioration of the pipes and the concrete around them. The completed bathroom consists of an entirely tiled shower stall and floor, partially tiled walls, new toilet and sink with vanity, modern plumbing throughout, and new lighting. The second renovation project took place in the utility room. This included a new floor constructed with interlocking vinyl panels, new wall panelling over a new laundry sink and vanity, with an adjacent counter top.
We had a very good working relationship with Cain throughout both of these projects, in spite of discovering some unforeseen additional problems such as deteriorated pipes under the concrete floor and wood rot in the walls. We were always able to discuss these surprises with Cain in a friendly and calm manner and determine with him the best solutions.

Bathroom Reno

Cain and crew transformed a tired, dreary 2 piece bathroom into something warm and inviting. There was no wasted time or effort in the job. His attention to detail was outstanding. I would hire them again in a second.

4 piece bathroom

We had a wonderful experience with OESC Home Renovations. They redid the 4 piece bathroom in our place in downtown Toronto. Cain was a joy to work with, the quality of the work was outstanding and the job was done on time and on budget. Kudos OESC - we'll for sure call you again.

Master bath renovation

Terrible experience. Work not completed as agreed or on time.All plumbing needed to be redone (Literally all plumbing leaked, not to code).Construction material was left on site. Requested full payment when work was not completed.Not competent to do work he is contracted to do. * the response below is deceitful. I posted this review to try to protect future customers. It was shameful work and potentially a "Holmes on Homes" episode !!!! Do your homework!

Company Response

This project was a master bathroom reno with a laundry room reno. It was a 4 week contract that was extended to 8 weeks. The delays were due to the customer stopping work twice because they did not like the tiles they purchased after they we installed. Unfortunately the project could not be finished due to non payment. The customer would not adhere to the payment schedule that was agreed upon.
