Patching and Painting of Entire House

We bought our house knowing that we would have to re-wire it and remove all knob-and-tube wiring. We hired Doru to help us patch up holes all over the house and re-paint, and we are so pleased that we did.
Initially we only wanted to re-paint a few walls, but after walking through the house with Doru, we realized that a fresh coat of paint everywhere would be a better option. Doru is knowledgeable, professional and efficient. He patched and re-painted our entire house in the promised time period. We trust him with our home and value his advice greatly. We would definitely recommend Doru to anyone that is looking for an experienced contractor.

Washroom renovation

It's pleasure to work with Doru, professional, don't look for short cuts, needy, clean work, has good design ideas. If you got creative designer but his contractor charge way to high go with Heptagon or you have ideas Doru would move your renovation to next level. I'm just very happy costumer)

Basement finishing, General drywall/plaster/carpentry work

I called Doru after he was recommended to me by a friend. I usually do my own work but I asked him to complete some of my basement finishing that I didn't have time to do myself. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I was a little nervous. It turns out that I had no reason to be.
Doru was able to handle all of the jobs I asked him to do and he did them extremely well. Not only did his work stand up to my scrutiny but I daresay it was a lot better than I could have done myself. What truly impressed me was how easily he was able to switch between, and handle, different types of work. From drywall/plaster to finish carpentry to painting to framing (and more!), he was able to do everything I threw at him with a high level of skill and precision.

This guy is a true gem! When you find someone as skilled, reliable and reasonable as this man is, you should consider yourself fortunate and keep his number close at hand.

Not only do enthusiastically recommend Doru to anyone who asks if I "know someone good...", I plan on having him come back to do a lot more work for me. If you do likewise, I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

Renovation of Small Downtown Office Suite

After Doru of Heptagon completed the renovation of my old mid-town condo (which turned out beautifully), I asked him to please help me with some upgrades to my small downtown office suite. Doru demolished the wall to a small office and installed glass sliding doors which turned that office into a small conference room. He also built and installed new customized white desks in 2 different offices in order for my team to utilize as much desk space as possible as well as in the newly-created small conference room.

Doru also put together and installed Ikea cube shelving throughout our office unit, customized wall shelving in a few offices and was also kind enough to install under-desk keyboard trays, coat racks in each office and cable organizers for each desk.

As I saw the rest of our office getting updated in clean white, I asked Doru if there was something that he could do to my old brown and very heavy wooden traditional L-shaped desk (which I have used, for sentimental reasons, for almost 20 years). I did not want to get rid of it and simply replace it with a new modern one. Doru examined my desk carefully, told me he could do it and then came into my office on Sunday to work on it. When I showed up for work on Monday, I had a totally “new”, white laminated desk which looks so different from my old brown one. Totally gorgeous!

Doru is coming back to my office later this week to demolish a half wall separating the reception from the open desk area (which will really open up the space), put together and assemble an Ikea credenza and a pull-down table in the kitchen.

Doru has done an incredible job in refreshing and totally changing the look of our tired-looking cluttered office suite and making it look brand new and fresh (even though we have been in the same office suite for 10 years). He kept assuring me that there was nothing that was too small for him to take on and handle. All he wanted was for our office suite to look great. For that, I am extremely grateful. My staff is very happy with the transformation and so am I. Thank you so much, Doru! You have convinced me that there is nothing that you cannot do.

Renovation of Old Condo in Mid-town Toronto

In the spring of 2016, I finally decided to do a complete, top-to-bottom, long overdue renovation on my old mid-town condo which I confess had gotten fairly run-down. As always, I revisited Homestars to search for a competent and licensed contractor with high ratings. I was absolutely thrilled to find Doru, through his company, Heptagon, to take on this renovation project.

At the outset, Doru was unbelievably patient in explaining to us the proposed renovation process, the anticipated timeline and, after seeing my budget, was able to take my wish list of what I wanted and break down the tasks and the associated costs involved. He also provided me with a number of trade references for licensed electricians and licensed plumbers for the electrical work and plumbing work that was also needed to be done. Doru took the time to meet with me and the trade references at the condo to make sure that I got the best price for the required work to be done and to ensure that the tradesmen understood exactly what was required to be done.

Doru showed up at the condo and worked virtually every business day from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and during the weekends, he sourced out, for our approval, the tiles, the flooring, the paint and everything else that was needed for the renovation. He kept us up to date by phone and by text message on a regular and ongoing basis of what had been completed that day and what the next steps were. It was very reassuring to me that he always had everything under control. Doru (i) handled the complete demolition of the old tiny kitchen, old bathroom, old parquet flooring, (ii) took down one of the walls between the kitchen and the dinette area, (iii) removed the popcorn from the ceiling throughout the condo, (iv) created a drop-down ceiling in the kitchen to disguise the electrical work that the electricians installed, (v) installed handscraped engineered flooring throughout, (v) installed a beautiful glassed-in shower and vanity (in place of the old tub and shower), (vi) painted the entire condo (ceiling, walls and trim), and (vii) installed crown moulding throughout. He patiently and carefully put together the Ikea kitchen and despite all the missing pieces that Ikea “forgot” to deliver (which required Doru to return to Ikea on a number of occasions), created a beautiful and customized kitchen to fit a very small space.

Doru is an extremely professional, very honest, hard-working and very skilled renovator. We had so much faith and trust in his work ethic, his eye for detail and his aesthetic (he has a background in art history). He was very generous with his time and treated the renovation as if he were renovating his own home. Nothing was left undone. He single-handedly turned an old run-down condo built in the 1970’s with cement walls into a beautiful showpiece. I was so happy with the work, the way it turned out and, overall, the entire renovation process. Honestly, beyond what I ever expected!

Thank you so much, Doru, for all your excellent work! We appreciate everything that you did for us. It was a perfect renovation from beginning to end and completely on budget. I will wholeheartedly refer you to friends and colleagues who are looking for any renovation work to be done.

handyman, drywall, framing

Doru has come over and worked on a number of renovation at my house. He is always hard working and his attention to detail is superb. He advises me honestly on prospective projects and is very reasonably priced. Doru is extremely flexible both with his skill set as well as his time. He truly makes you feel that the project he is working on at your place is as important as if it was a project for his own house. I would strongly recommend Doru for your renovation projects.

Backyard Fence

Doru was referred to us by a friend. We needed parts of our backyard fence repaired. Doru was very responsive and came to the house as soon as possible to discuss the job and prepare a quote. We were hosting a backyard party in a few days, and asked Doru to complete the job on short notice. Doru accommodated our schedule and provided excellent services. We couldn't be happier with the finished product. He also stuck to the quote. We would definitely use Doru again for any carpentry needs. Highly recommend this company!

Popcorn Ceiling Removal

Doru was referred to us by our painter and we are very glad that he was!
He always arrived on time, kept a clean work space and worked very efficiently. He was very knowledgeable and courteous. He replaced our popcorn ceiling with a smooth ceiling and we were very pleased with his work. He also repaired wall damage around different areas in the house. We will definitely use his services again, he is very skilled in many different renovation areas and was a pleasure to have work for us.

Door replacements, Painting, Plaster work

Dour replaced all the doors including the closet doors on our second floor, dry walled our master bedroom ceiling,and painted our second floor. In addition he did other related small jobs including changing a light fixture and demo'ing our stair railing for the stair and railing contractor. Our house is almost 100 years and all the doors were crooked and the floors were uneven so all the doors had to be custom cut and cased and some walls had to be smoothed out prior to painting. Doru did a great job. He was always on time, efficient, courteous and knowledgeable and left the site clean and tidy. I would definitely recommend Doru and will use him again for future jobs.
