Bathroom renovations , and landscaping

We first hired TAG for some landscaping in our backyard and front yard. They did a great job with the interlocking and our deck. They worked with us to create a nice design and we couldn’t be happier with our new space.

The same thing goes for our bathroom renovations. They went above and beyond to make sure everything was installed correctly. They were very open to new ideas and worked carefully with us to deliver a finished product.

Backyard patio, ramp and grading

My wife and I couldn't be happier with how this project turned out. A representative of The Anything Guys (TAG) came to visit first, to get an appreciation of the kind of work we wanted to do, chat about our options, take some measurements and provide us with a quote. A second visit was scheduled to walk through the details, where we were presented with patio stone colour options. We finalized the details together, and we quickly received a start date. The whole thing took a day and a half of work for them. Very impressive speed and efficiency. As we wanted to ensure proper grading, they came in with a tractor and removed the existing ground cover. They were very attentive to the fence already in place. They did exactly what we had discussed. We texted throughout the entire process, as was my preferred way of communicating. They were patient, honest and took every concern we had into consideration. I will be doing business with TAG again.

A year and some months later, the patio still looks as good as new. Still, very happy about the whole team and their work. A job and attitude.

Basement Renovation and design

This is long due, but i just would like to recommend the TAG team and hopethat they can grow their business. I had several quotes against TAG but Tom the president came in and brought unique ideas to the table cooupled with reasonable pricing. His staff were all knowledgable guys who took pride in their work and made sure that my satisfaction with the reno was there.

Communication is also a big plus for TAG, thye have a great office manager and Tom always took the time to call me to ensure everything was right. Sometimes i felt like he provided too many updates ! And thats a great thing!

Remove front lawn grass and replace with soil and new sod; remove and replace decorative fence

This was not the first time we've dealt with the TAG team and as with the previous work, we were very pleased. Tom provided a detailed estimate and went over the work with us. His team did an excellent job and were very professional. The work was done in a timely manner and it looks great. Tom always follows up to ensure clients are happy. We would not hesitate to recommend TAG to others.

Fence Repair and Shed Removal/Installation

The guys did a great job fixing my fence and removing my old shed and replacing it with a new one which had to be put together. They showed up on time and completed the work in the time stated. They even picked up my new shed from the store!
Thanks for a job well done.

Retaining wall and sod replacement

We consulted several companies to provide estimates to remove and replace a deteriorating 50-foot long wooden retaining wall in a part of the back garden. In our research, we were referred to Tom and The Anything Guys (TAG) by trusted friends. Tom responded quickly and freely offered expert advice and suggestions regarding how to improve our initial proposals. He then provided a detailed estimate for the work, an estimate that was competitive with other companies.

Complicating the work timeline were the heat of July 2016 and the need for TAG to provide and work with mechanical earthmoving equipment in a very confined space. TAG tradesmen were amazing in their capability to handle the earthmoving equipment with precision (including passing the earthmover/backhoe through an existing arbour with literally one-half an inch of clearance) and the subsequent accompanying wheelbarrow work required by tradesmen in the heat of summer to remove and replace a huge quantity of earth.

Once underway, based on recommendations from Tom and Andre, it was mutually agreed that part of the remediation would be better accomplished by removing the existing adjacent lawn and replacing it with new sod. The additional cost required beyond the original estimate was reasonable, and the work done was also excellent and done within the original timeline. Throughout, Tom and Andre continued to provide detailed explanations of how the work was progressing, including further recommendations for improving our original proposals.

All of the TAG employees were pleasant, efficient and professional throughout. Final cleanup and remediation (including arisings such as siding repairs) were done quickly and professionally. The TAG staff members were always on time each day, and were easy to contact by phone or e-mail. In spite of arisings, TAG professionals were able to complete the necessary work within a reasonable timeframe.

We are now in discussion with TAG for additional paving stone and asphalt work, and hope to be able to again engage TAG services for this additional task.

We hired TAG after consulting with various companies. Their quote was most competitive both in terms of cost and timeline. Despite some challenges working with our old home (approx 100 years), the team did a great job and we couldn't be happier with the final result. Everyone at TAG was great to work with. The communication was also a strong point with Tom and company. Would definitely work with them again.

The TAG team have been excellent to work with: responsive to questions, offering design suggestions and addressing any concerns quickly. Everyone who came to the house was friendly and the work was always high quality. We look forward to having them back for more projects in the future.
