Brick to Brick Reno of entire home

We renovated our entire home (in Riverdale) from top to bottom including a polished concrete basement floor which George did.

George is the BEST in the business. We would not tender future projects. We would simply ask George when he can start and give him our budget.

George offers reasonable rates. He is neither the cheapest nor most expensive. His rate is very competitive.

His work is excellent. While like myself he is not perfect .. He is as close to it as humanly possible. He is very meticulous unlike every other trade or contractor we have used. We extensively renovated a previous home and had many poor experiences.

George is very honest. He provides daily or weekly reports on work completed, cost (ie overruns not on original quote). He reduced his costs when he found cheaper solutions.

We regret hiring some trades prior to the large reno as George Gets the Job done with superb quality in a cost effective manner (I realize this sounds cliche but its true).

George does most work by himself which does mean he takes a bit longer than some other contractors - but it is absolutely worth it. Most work done by sub trades were done with little thought or needed some re-work. It is worth the wait. George is a perfectionist. He is awesome.

We had radiation in one dump load for which we were charged by the dumping company. George got his own geiger counter the night we informed and checked the whole house (it was fine). This is an example of his dedication to the job.

Whole Home Reno

George is the BEST in the business. In the future, I would simply call George up, give him the job, tell him how much money we have to spend. Did I say George is the BEST in the business.

While George, like everyone ie myself and every human is not perfect, he is as close to it as one can get.

We renovated our 100 year old home in Riverdale. Our project expanded significantly over time. We essentially rebuilt our entire house. (Photos and details available on request). George updated us on costs on a daily and weekly basis. His cost is very reasonable. He is neither the cheapest nor the most expensive. George is very aware of costs and came up with innovative ways to solve problems in a cheaper manner than originally conceived. George reduced his charges when he found cheaper solutions.

The quality of George's work is excellent. Having done other home renos and having used other contractors previously and directly sub'd out trades - which I regret - I can attest to the fact that George does excellent work - the best of any trade we have every used.

George does most of the work himself which means 2 things - he wont be he quickest of any contractor - but the work will be excellent. As mentioned, we had many problems with sub trades ie HVAC, Sprayfoam and windows (directly or indirectly sub'd out). In the future, I would rather have George deal with it.

In summary, we would not tender any jobs. Instead we would call George ask him when to move out and tell him our budget. He is very honest, Very good (NO AMAZING...NO THE BEST) and very reasonable in terms of cost.

Basement Renovation

We had been wanting to renovate our basement for sometime, then someone recommended us to splinter contracting, He gave us a Design plan and was very professional and easy to communicate with. He was able to save our horrifying basement and convert it to a family gather room, where i have no heard the end of the complements. would definitely recommend, and gave us his warranty for one year, but havent needed it so far, every thing is perfect
he did re dry walling, hard wood flooring, plumbling and design, and once finished didnt hesitate to clean up, left the place spotless. i couldnt be any happier

Basement renovation

I had a very bad experience with previous contractors so I was very anal about who to choose. I was recommended to Splinter Contracting, and was very impressed with the results. They were very professional and tidy with everything they did. The prices were reasonable and I would defiantly recommend them to anyone.

First Review

Rental Property Upgrade (new windows, electrical, plumbing, plastering, woodwork)

Our house on Silverbirch needed updating, the windows were old and leaky, the floors were worn, some electrical wiring was malfunctioning and a host of other smaller issues, and since our last tenant was moving out we decided to keep the house vacant for a month and give it a quick face-lift.

Splinter Contracting's quote came in the middle of the three that we had obtained, but since we had dealt with Splinter before we decided to award the project to them.

We were extremely happy with the results. George and his crew once again proved to be truly professional, finishing the job on time, on budget and with a quality that far exceeded our expectations.

We've recommended Splinter Contracting to all our friends and have heard back nothing but praises.

We look forward to having George and his crew on our next renovation project.
