Master bath renovation

This renovation effectively involved a floor to ceiling transformation, with a complete demolition to start followed by a complete rebuild. New walk-in shower, new custom vanity, new bathtub, new toilet, new tiling, new fixtures. The planning and pre-construction meetings were focused and effective. SOSNA staff were very detail-oriented and formulated an operational plan that was followed closely. On-site trades were very good and courteous, maintaining as clean a work site as possible given that the family remained in the house throughout this process. And the attitude of the sub-trades (cabinetry, counter) were consistent with that of SOSNA - their work was almost seamless when viewed with that of the SOSNA staff. Corrective actions to issues that arose during the project were prompt and effective. And finally, the work was completed within the timeline SOSNA provided up-front. The end-result is a beautiful new master bath.

Main Floor Renovation

Once again I hired Andrei and his team to complete a major 10 week renovation of my 1922 built home. In addition to completing basement renos, a small upstairs bathroom and then the rest of the second storey, Sosna Inc. has now completed the whole main floor of my house, stairs to the second storey as well as putting insulation and stucco on the outside west wall.

This year I again turned to Designer Olga who did an exceptional job of maximizing the space in the small bathroom previously. This time her design not only maximized the space for the kitchen, but also opened up the entire main floor living area and virtually made it a new house! I am so pleased with her work. It is difficult in an older home to modernize and yet maintain the unique character of the home. Olga once again listened to what was important to me and worked with the Sosna team to retain certain features of the original home, for example some years ago I had stripped the old finish off wood railings and mouldings and she insisted that this wood was beautiful and not be painted as is often the trend today. She kept even a portion of an old plate rail in the dining room and it looks amazing with the new kitchen.

Care to detail and exceptional workmanship has been noted by all of Andrei's team, not just Olga. The plumber, plasterer, cabinet maker, electrician, stucco team, carpet installers, window installers were all good as well as being punctual and respectful of the areas that were not under construction. Vitaly is amazing when it comes to tiling, both the floor and the backsplash. The original hardwood floor was refinished by Dragos upstairs last winter and with this project he replaced the old with the new. While it may be easier to work with the new flooring, I'd like to add that he was a truly a master when it came to fixing the upstairs floors where repairs needed to be made and some new wood needed to be added in small spaces and matched with the old. The Project Manager, Roman, kept everything to schedule and was a very hard worker himself. He was also always very prompt at getting back to me with any questions I had.

Andrei has always been great on each and every project he has done on this house. He has satisfied every little request and major requests too. He takes care of all details and honours the contract process. It is very clear that Andrei aims to keep his clients happy and finish projects to their satisfaction. However that being said, there are always surprises that cannot be anticipated. The Sosna team dealt with the discovery of asbestos in a wall that was removed in a prompt and safe manner. The abatement costs were additional costs to me but most understandable. I was glad that Sosna Inc recommended a quality abatement company to deal with the asbestos removal safely and very quickly.

In addition to a thorough contract that included timelines, I had a detailed outline of the work to be done and they stuck to it! I continue to be impressed that all workers make a real effort to keep the house as neat as possible and garbage is cleared away regularly. The new hardwood floors were protected until the very last moment when painting and everything else was done.

I cannot say enough how much I value their professionalism and the pride they take in their work. I would highly recommend the Sosna Team to anyone without hesitation.

You can honestly believe their tag line......"A contractor you can trust" !

Basement renovation

We had a perfect experience with Sosna! My mom already had a great experience having her basement renovated with Sosna a couple of years ago and on that recommendation we hired the team to renovate our completely unfinished basement - they 'wowed' us and we are thrilled with our basement as a compete and amazing extended living space (includes bedroom, huge bathroom, open kitchen and recreation area). Here is how easy and seamless the process and experience was for us: Sosna took care of everything end to end, design, architectural drawings, all permits, recommendations and curating of all of the finishes throughout the basement (the in house designer, Olga, is spot on in planning interiors - and it was soooo easy, she brought all of our short listed choices for finishes and pieces to us and put it together so well - she ensured and advised that everything from the doors, to floors, to paint, to lighting to bathroom fixtures flowed across our entire home). The Sosna team thinks of everything, every detail of the project and manages it efficiently and on time. They impressed us with their professionalism and organization. Every day for over 3 months they were at our home before 7am and finished in late afternoon, and everyday the basement was immaculately clean and tidy. The whole crew, Roman, Eugene and the rest of the team were committed, and a pleasure to have in our home. Sosna takes huge pride in their work, down to the last detail, and in ensuring a great outcome and positive experience for the homeowners. We highly recommend Sosna for any reno project.

Family room renovation

This company was so professional. From the estimate meeting to the final review, Andrei was only concerned about our needs and expectations. The work crew were polite, well skilled and on time. The project was completed ahead of schedule and exceeded our expectations. I have already recommended them to our friends for other projects. We would definitely use Sosna again for any other home projects we have.

Bathroom renovation

We hired Sosna Inc after seeing the work they had done in a friends home. We had our bathroom completely re-done. They are very professional, Andrei attended appointments on time, was very thorough with what we could expect from them and what was expected from us. They were upfront with all pricing (no hidden costs), their designer Olga worked with our style and gave us great options plus revised any selection we weren't happy with. They arrived promptly on the scheduled start date and finished on the day they said they hoped to. They job would have been finished a day earlier but we were waiting on a custom piece that came a day later then was hoped for. All workers were very courteous, arrived on time and were gone for the day leaving the house in the condition we were promised. Any concerns or questions we had were answered in a quickly and the only two extra price adjustments were for changes that we needed and authorized. We are very happy with the work and results we've received from Sosna Inc and would highly recommend them to anyone considering hiring a contractor for home renovation.

Master bath renovation

We researched a lot of contractors until we choose Sosna Inc. During the entire process Andrei and his team have exceeded our expectations with respect to professionalism, quality and staying on schedule. The detailed contract that covered all the aspects of the project, and the project drawings, reassured us that this is a company that cares about every detail.
We were also pleasantly surprised that our daily life was minimally disrupted by the renovations; the crew was respectful of our space and our time, they always took great care to cover the areas they walked through and clean after themselves.
We are very satisfied with the design and the final product, our bath looks like a 5* spa retreat. We will not hesitate to recommend Sosna to our friends and family, and we will certainly know who call for our next project. Thank you Andrei, Olga, and the team!

Kitchen, Master Bath & Master Closet

After many years of searching for the right contractor for our kitchen and master bath renovation, we found Andrei of Sosna Inc. We felt very comfortable in the knowledge and expertise Andrei provided. With the help of designer Olga, we came up with a plan that was well executed by the rest of the team. The crew were professional and conscientious while in our home. Reliable, always on time, Andrei runs a well oiled machine. Olga was able change the layout of our master bedroom giving us a much bigger closet and fabulous bathroom. The kitchen could not have come out better. We are very picky. Andrei was always available to answer all of our questions and any concerns we had. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Sosna Inc. to my family, friends and neighbours. In fact, already have. Thank you so much Andrei and team Sosna.

Bathroom Renovation

We did a complete bathroom renovation. It had never been renovated from the original build, 40 years prior. The bathroom was gutted because of mold issues and plumbing changes and it was completely redone, from the studs out.
Sosna Inc did a great job with all the renovations (waterproofing, moving plumbing, tiling & painting, installing fixtures, etc.), they used quality materials and the workers were skilled and knowledgeable.
The worksite was always kept neat and cleaned at the end of the workday.
There was ongoing communication throughout the project, and we were able to collaborate from the design stage all the way to the finished renovation.
The work was also completed within the given timeline.

Whole office interior build

We had a big empty space, and about 2 weeks to get walls built and ceilings installed. It was a pretty daunting task. But the guys at Sosna really pulled through for us and got the job done! I couldn't believe it! The whole job was professional, solid, well built and sturdy. I can not say enough good things about Andrei, Vlad & Roman at Sosna and their total commitment to a job well done. THANK YOU!
