Great full house reno!

We started our reno journey 4 years ago, met many contractors, architects, structural engineers and consultants. Even started with a design build contractor then parted ways halfway through the design when they had already doubled our budget.
Andy was completely open about the costs and what was allocated to each aspect of the project.

They had quality materials included and flexibility for a bit more control if needed though the costs were very competitive.
Andy, Lia, Brad and the team were great to work with and we had a great relationship. The trades were on site near every day and were also very skilled and high quality.
I have already recommended Stratas to others and would use them again without doubt.

Dream House

This is our second time working Stratas Design Build. Our first reno with Stratas was so positive that shortly after we were done we realized that we wanted to renovate again but this time go much bigger and make it our dream house. It took us 5 years to find the right house and when we did, we knew we had to have Stratas do the work. They were with us every step of the way, starting with a visit to see the newly purchased house before we even had possession to help us start thinking through design options. When we ran into some unexpected obstacles with the construction permit, Andy and team worked through the weekend to quickly provide alternative design options which both met our needs and addressed the issues raised by the City. In the end, I think we ended up with a better design then we were originally planning.

We weren’t always the easiest clients, making meaningful design changes during the construction process – thank you Andy for moving the stairs to the other side of the house at the last minute – but the entire team was always accommodating and understanding. Stratas Design’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction is second to none and that dedication extends to his team and trades people who are always more than willing to walk you through their process or provide suggestions/advice. Thank you to everyone at Stratas Design for building our dream house. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with you a third time, but I think we may stay in this house for a while.

Contractor of the Decade!

We were recommended to call Andy for our main floor renovation by a colleague back in 2016. We had met with a few contractors already but when we met Andy we had a great first impression. We decided to move forward using his company and we could not have been any happier with the result. Andy and his crew were excellent - they showed up on time, got the job done right and did an excellent job communicating with my husband and I regarding any issues or questions. In the end, Stratas Design Build renovated our entire main floor - we took down a few walls and built a new kitchen - plus new hardwood floors and 2 bathroom upgrades. We ended up doing the floors on our second level as well. We love how our home was renovated exactly how we wanted it to be! We would recommend Stratas Design Build to anyone looking to renovate.

Full Reno and Addition

Andy, Lia and their team are very dedicated and reliable. Andy is an honest person which gave us a lot of confidence to want to work with him right from our first conversations.

This being our first renovation, it was very helpful that Andy managed the entire project from concept to construction, and walked us through each step along the way.

During our renovation there was constant communication, updates and regular walk throughs and discussions about upcoming work to keep us well informed. Andy and his trades were very profession and respectful, including with how they managed relationships with neighbours.

Lia’s design contribution was also extremely helpful by providing us with ideas and helping us choose finishes along the way. My husband and I have different style ideas and many times Lia was able to give us solutions which combined the two.

We expected this to be a very stressful period in our lives but in reality we really enjoyed the process and now have a beautiful home for our family to grow into.

Thank you Andy and Lia and the entire team for all your hard work.

Excellent Team & Outstanding Workmanship!

We did a 2 story extension, updated our kitchen, replaced our stairs & floors (along with other items) and couldn't have been happier with the renovation process and the end result. Andy and his trades are very considerate and extraordinarily skilled in their trades which helped us move the project forward smoothly and able tackle any unforeseen 'snags' confidently and efficiently.

The was regular communication during the process and they work tirelessly to meet timelines without sacrificing quality. What is most refreshing about Andy and his team is their honesty, everything is on the table from the start which provided us with advance knowledge to help us plan and prioritize our funds and work to be done.

We had (still have) full trust in Andy and his team and highly recommend you use them for any project you may have in mind if you don't want any 'renovation nightmare' stories to share with friends and family.

Mainfloor and Bathroom

After almost a year of interviewing and getting quotes from multiple contractors, we were thrilled to find Andy! From beginning to end, Andy and his team exceeded our expectations. His experience and strong relationship with suppliers really helped guide us through a million decisions and sidestep mistakes. We absolutely love the final product and look forward to hiring Stratas Design in the future.

Working with Andy, Lia and the rest of the crew was a great experience. A complete main floor and bathroom reno in about 8 weeks! Couldn't be happier with the end result and the service and attention to detail was outstanding. Would recommend Andy and Stratas Design Build to anyone looking for a quality job.

Main Floor Renovation

Andy gave us confidence from our very first meeting. Hi knowledge and experience of homes the age and style of our was evident from the start. His follow up was prompt and he was eager to bring us to other homes they have done. The trades people that Andy deals with were all exlempary. Polite, professional and skilled. Our job expanded a little from its original scope and incurred no significant delays or additional expenses along the way. Andy and his team were a pleasure to work with. We always felt we were kept up to date on the progress and he was regularly available to answer questions.
After seeing other properties Stratas had completed, we felt confident they would. E able to deliver what we were looking for and we were right. We highly recommend Andy Stratas and his team.

Fix It Upper - Big Reno

This was our first time buying a home and renovating and all the horror stories we had heard/ read made us nervous. We called in 5 contractors to take a look and provide us a quote. Right from get go Andy made it clear he wanted to partner with us to make our vision come to life. He took us to see a few houses he had renovated, it gave us an insight into the kind of work he would deliver and it gave him an understanding of what we were looking for. We also had a really short window of time within which we wanted this extensive renovation done. Andy kept us on time and on budget, he was also very communicative, available to address our concerns and always offered solutions and alternatives when something went off course. Both Andy and his trades were extremely professional and very thorough. We would work with Andy again without any hesitation and absolutely recommend him.
