Rear 2 story brick addition plus finished basement and new detached garage: After extensive research of numerous general contractors in the GTA, my husband and I found Steve Babcook from Kingsway General Contracting Services and I am so happy we did! Good friends of ours had used Kingsway during construction of their own two story rear addition and had nothing but good feedback from their own job.
We did a rear two story brick addition to our 100 year old home with two rear porches, a deck and a detached two car garage. We are so pleased with the quality of work done. We know our home is solidly built thanks to Steve and his crew.
We used a wide range of building materials and custom finishes on the job, including full brick combined with Hardie cement board siding, heated natural stone floors, ICF concrete foundation, extensively customized wiring with full ethernet network capability, Azek porch flooring and railing, hardwood floors and stairs, custom built wood mantels and trim for inset gas fireplaces, custom built cubbies and closets for kids in the mudroom, and the list goes on... Throughout the process Steve was hardworking, diligent, always made sure the job was done right and that we were happy with the results! Any time we wanted to add additional work to the project that wasn't covered by the original contract, Steve was very fair and honest and we never felt like we were taking advantage of or overcharged for extras that were done.
Steve went the extra mile to use green building materials at our request and let us pick and choose the exact finishing details and trim profiles we wanted.
Steve has a very friendly and courteous work crew who cleaned up each night, so impressive! This was very important to us as we lived in the original part of the house throughout the entire build process and his crew had numerous interactions with us and our children throughout the day.
The most important thing at the end of a large project like this is whether you would hire the same person again - we definitely will and plan to do our front porch and laundry room with them in the near future.. and have recommended Kingsway to our closest friends for their own renovation.
