Kitchen/Main floor/Master bathroom/Guest bathroom renovation

My wife and I bought our house in 2015, and although we loved the location, we did not love the look of the interior of the house. A couple of years ago, we decided to renovate to modernize the interior and make it closer to what we envisioned as our dream home. From the initial meeting with Andrei to share with him what we wanted to be done to the very end when we were in awe of the finished project, we were impressed with the Sosna team. All the steps in the process were well organized and planned out. Expectations with the pricing and the timeline of the project were outlined prior to the start so there would be no surprises. Questions and concerns were addressed very quickly and to our satisfaction. During construction, every team member was pleasant to work with and the team was very accommodating to our needs. We were still able to live in the house with two adults, two kids, and a dog, despite most of the house undergoing major renovations. When the project was completed, we were impressed not only by the visual appeal, but also by the quality of the workmanship and materials used. Now, two years after the project was completed, we continue to enjoy our renovated home. Our home still looks very similar to when the renovations were first completed, which is a testament to the quality of the work. The few minor issues that have developed were promptly addressed by Andrei and his team. I would highly recommend Sosna for any home renovation, and would be happy to work with them again for any of my own future needs. They are the ideal home renovation company, and I am glad I chose them

First and Second Floor complete renovation including kitchen & bathroom

We wanted a complete renovation of our first and second floors in a century-old home in downtown Toronto. We have owned our home for over 34 years and have always wanted to update it into an open-concept entertainers’ dream. The years seemed to be passing by so quickly and we decided it was “now or never”. Finding a reliable and trustworthy contractor was our first challenge. We spoke to family, friends and neighbours who had renovated looking for recommendations. We researched many contractors and read hundreds of reviews on Houzz. One contractor stood out from the crowd and we decided to meet with Sosna. From our initial meeting with Andrei , we felt confident moving forward with the renovation work. Sosna is a “one-stop shop” for all aspects of a renovation from initial design to fixtures and fittings. The best thing about Sosna is the people we worked with. We had multiple design meetings with Sosna’s designer, Camila, who was a pleasure to work with, knowledgeable and very patient with us. She was able to help us bring our vision to reality. Our main Sosna contacts, Project Manager, Vitaly and Project Manager, Roman, were extremely hard workers and always available to answer our questions and address any concerns during construction. Timelines were strictly adhered to and even during a global pandemic, our project was completed beautifully and ahead of schedule. There are so many renovation horror stories but we are delighted to say that our story was a dream come true. Our renovation was completed with attention to detail and on-time results. We would highly recommend Sosna.

Main floor remodel

We first engaged with Andrei at Sosna in January 2020 to discuss the basement, then asked about the main floor. He listened to our concerns and pushed back on many in order to make us focus and articulate exactly what we really needed and wanted. It was great to have that clarity and redirection. Andrei recommended that we arrange for the basement waterproofing ourselves to save money, and we decided that we would engage Sosna for the main floor. Then Covid hit and put a pause on life.
In the fall of 2020 we were ready to re-engage and were connected with Olga, their designer. She worked with us many hours, many meetings, many questions, to guide us to a beautiful design. It was great to have her expertise because I'm not good at coming up with those ideas!
Between our schedule needs, Covid lockdowns, and Sosna's availability, we were not able to start the construction phase until March 2, 2021. But boy, they really do not stop! They were here every day before 7, all the trades required were scheduled in exactly, and the work was completed by the end of April (ahead of their original estimate). Sergey, the site manager, greeted me every morning with a smile as I left with our dog, and would often tell me what was planned for the day and answer any questions I had. Because they plan so well in the design stage, there were no hiccups, no pauses and very few decisions to be made. There were just a couple minor unforeseeable issues that arose and we were presented with the problem and possible solutions. These did not delay the project at all as they were able to continue with other areas in the meantime.
We are thrilled with our new bright open space and I have been hyping Sosna to anyone who will listen, stopping people I see taking info brochures from the signpost on my lawn. I can't say enough about our experience working with Sosna and the results.

Bathroom Renvoations

We had been thinking about renovating our two upstairs bathrooms for a couple of years. After interviewing three different contractors and designers, we felt it was just not a right match. Our friends who had recently completed a renovation of their own having learned of our need of a good contractor highly recommended SOSNA Inc.
Our renovation is now complete and I can say that we are delighted! Team SOSNA came through. Their professionalism is unlike any I have seen from any contractors we have ever dealt with. Andrei walked us through the renovation from beginning to end ensuring that we were comfortable with the process and budget!
An additional benefit to SOSNA is that they have designers on staff. We worked with Olga to put together our dream bathrooms. Olga is not only endowed with talent but is extremely caring about her clients. She guided us through our design and spent time to ensure that we were satisfied with every choice we made.
Vitaly was there day to day and again a total pleasure to work with. He made sure that our property was protected during the renovation process, putting up plastic walls and runners to minimize dust and dirt to the rest of the home.
Roman was our Project Manager and he was there to ensure that the work was done right. He encouraged us to have weekly calls but also came by to inspect the work himself.
Contractors that care, show up each day and come on time! It is a great company with great people!

Total Transformation World Class Craftsmanship Great After Sales Service Great People

We hired Sosna to renovate our kitchen, bathrooms and to remove structural walls, paint, new electrical outlets and fixtures, and plumbing , remove popcorn ceilings etc.

They are a class act from start to finish. Their designer Olga is extremely talented and a pleasure to deal with. They protect your property from the renovation process as if it is their own putting up plastic walls and runners to limit the impact of the work on other parts of your home. The staff including Andrei Leo Jacob and the others not only know how to do their job great but are great people. Minor corrections are attended by the next business day.
The job is done right by a contractor who always shows up and the work product is magazine/ showroom quality. We will miss them like family/friends being in our home during the process.

Shower stall issue

Part of the protective seal on the new shower door had come away. Not an urgent issue, but I called the owner of the company who did the original renovation over a year before. Got a call right away from his installer, who arranged - in these difficult times (very busy for contractors too) - to do the repair at his earliest convenience. He went out of his way (geographically) to do a 15 minute job. Although the issue came to light outside of the warranty period, the work was gratis. Great people make a great company...and it starts at the top.

Mysterious Leak

Once again Andrei and his SOSNA crew improved our house and our lives. They have created new rooms for us in the past, this time they repaired some faulty original construction, that has caused leaks in our kitchen ceiling over the past 25 years.

The obvious cause of a water stained kitchen ceiling would be a leak from outside. We have had our extended kitchen roof repaired three or four times - but every few years the water stains were back. Andrei’s keen eye suspected a different problem. First he had us hire a heat-escaping engineer/photographer who confirmed Andrei’s suspicion. The original builder had not insulated the metal beam that supported the second floor where our kitchen extension roof ends. This allowed the beam to get very cold in bad winters and cause condensation to drip onto our kitchen ceiling.

His polite and efficient crew came in one morning, covered the floor from the front door through to our kitchen and draped sheer plastic sheets along the working corridor. At night when the work was done for the day, we would lift and tape up the plastic sheets to make doorways to our kitchen cabinets and family room. The main floor looked a sultan’s tent.

One thing that was up in the air was whether or not we would have to paint the kitchen ceiling where the drywall was removed to install spray-in insulation foam, or if Leo, our congenial site foreman, could match the paint to the rest of the kitchen ceiling saving us from having to paint the whole of the main floor ceiling.

Leo matched it and Andrei happily lowered the estimate. How unusual for a contractor to lower costs after their work. But it is not surprising if you deal with an honest contractor like SOSNA.

Andrei, to you and your crew - thank you again. We look forward to working with you on more of our home improvement projects.

Home renovation

I just have to write to say how pleased I am with your services, which you already know :). We have known each other for about seven years now and each and every time I have spoken or emailed about anything to anyone I have dealt with, it has always been the most pleasant of experiences. As recently as yesterday, Vitaly was here to do some small adjustments/touch ups and, of course, he's as pleasant as ever, and did a great job.

Both Brian and I feel very lucky that we found you when we were looking to do our first renovation.

A huge thank you to you and your team, which with your leadership, has just over and over again proven excellence.

Kitchen Renovation

Thank you for sending Boris today to fix the caulking in the kitchen. He came immediately. The training your workers have is exceptional. They are professional, courteous and personable. It was like greeting an old friend when he came today!
As I have said before, it is a pleasure dealing with your company. You stand behind your work. If there is something to be fixed, it is attended to rapidly and with care and proficiency. It makes us as customers feel we spent our money wisely when we chose your company to do our renovations.
Thank you!

Take care,
Sheila

Mississauga Open Concept Main Floor

We were introduced to Sonsa by a close friend, who had just finished his Toronto townhouse renovation. We had just bought a house in Mississauga that had the original floor-plan - completely separate living room, dining room, kitchen, and the smallest powder room ever built.

Our designer Anna was great to work with, as she has a similar aesthetic as us, and knew how to execute the bold and modern design elements we were looking for.

The most impressive and unique part of the renovation was how they reconfigured the front entry to make the power room larger. They switched the front door and the sidelight, and built the sidelight into the bathroom as a window, which almost doubled the square footage of the bathroom.

We're really happy with how everything turned out, and can't wait to have them back for future projects!
