Custom home design & build

I hired Rs Homes to build a custom home for my family in 2017. Their expertise and professionalism really expedited a seemingly complex permit process. They were able to produce a clear online daily log during construction phase which apprised me of the latest development. Eventually, the project was completed in a timely and professional manner . Job, well done!

Reno follow up

RS Homes completed a beautiful renovation for us 4 years ago. We have only positive feedback to give - professional execution, collaborative approach and top notch customer service. Even years after- they are nothing but accommodating in regards to any touch ups or issues we may have. Thank you RS Homes !

Custom Home Design and Build

In late 2018 we selected RS Homes as our Design and Build partner for our custom home build. The build is ~3500 square feet plus a finished basement and a pool.

Today (April 2020) we are about halfway through the project and we are very happy with RS Homes. Our project has faced a lot of external challenges (city, neighbourhood and COVID-19), but RS Homes has done a fantastic job of keeping the project moving in spite of these difficulties. The build quality and materials used are excellent.

As a customer, there are two traits that I have observed that I greatly appreciate about RS Homes' approach:

1) I am kept extremely well informed of the build project. I receive near-daily site updates that include pictures, weather, progress notes, challenges and solutions. This allows me to react quickly if I need to make a change, or to give a clearer picture of our vision for our home.

2) RS has been very fair to deal with in areas of conflict. No contract has perfect specifications, but how your builder works with you on resolving those specification gaps says a lot. We have had a number of changes that have been absorbed by RS. We have also had a number of changes that we agreed are new costs. And some changes we've met in the middle. With each of those discussions I came away believing that I was treated fairly by RS Homes.

We still have some ways to go on the final project, but I am very pleased with the project so far. I'm a proud RS Homes customer and can't wait for move in day!

Worst builder

This is in response to RS home answer
It’s not you who left the job, you were kicked out of the job as you guys demolished the house without permit and that tells your professional ability. Also tell people that your team took out all the electrical and plumbing fixtures and sold it in our absence when we were out of country.
Not to worry time is there now to answer all the allegations in court soon.

RS Homes Review
We hired this builder to do a major Reno at our house under the impression that they know their job . Unfortunately I don’t think they even have the capability and capacity to handle any project . They claimed to have a full team but during the project we realized that they have none . They hired unprofessional people to demolish our 11000 Sq ft house at Mississauga Rd and screwed up everything including the wiring, plumbing , dry wall and insulation which later costed us approx 250K to fix. They put handyman to do the framing job at our house who put screws on framing rather than nails. They demolished the whole house in a way that we get forced to do everything new. They are in business for more than a decade and have only few projects to show which shows their credibility and efficiency. We end up firing them as if we would have kept them there , it would have costed me a good amount of money for no use . The other contractors were surprised to see what they have done to the property . I would strongly recommend anyone to be aware and don’t pay them anything in advance as you will never get that money again .
Very unprofessional and rude people to deal with and I was surprised to see how his employees work with him .
I am sharing my experience and have many proofs . I am sure every single project they did might have taken them twice the time and double the money as compared to any other good contractor . Please ensure to go and visit at least 5 sites before you even think of giving them business.

Hello Raman, we would like to apologize for your negative experience with RS Custom Home Builders. We take pride in our work and level of service we provide to our valued clients. We had full intentions of completing the job and finishing the work we started, however, because no permit was obtained, we were unable to do so. We understand this was frustrating for you as you were eager to get the work done, however we had to abide by the laws and not continue the work without a permit. This is the first time we started a job that we could not finish for a client. Despite providing you with a quote on the full project the contract we signed was for demolition only - we were not the contractor for this job and did not build anything. If anyone reading this has additional questions or concerns we would be happy to speak honestly and openly on this matter. Please feel free to contact us directly at (416) 480-0282.

House relovation

I’m satisfied with RS Homes’ work and services. They built a good relationship with me during the process, I was involved in every part of the process. They listened to my suggestions and helped me achieve what I wanted. They provided a really good customer service after the work is done too. I would love to work with them again.

Design and Build Custom Home

We started our journey building our dream house almost two years ago including searching for the ideal lot in the area we want. Finding a reliable builder that we are comfortable working with (and vice versa) is as important as finding the right building lot. We are lucky we found RS Homes. The project is a complete design build. We worked with the Architect they recommended to put the dream house onto the drawing board, then got the permits late last summer. It was just eight months ago that the bulldozer first appeared on the lot, the house is now taking shape. It involves so many areas, trades, city and utilities. RS Homes made the process easy. Scheduling work and material deliveries can be a challenge to many as I often heard, but their project manager manages it so well that there were hardly any delay or gap in activities. Wish they can control the harsh winter though. We received progress update almost daily via app as well as regular on site visits that some adjustments and decisions can be made to make everything is as perfect as possible. When we are on site, we can discuss with the trade people such as carpenters, plumbers and electricians. They are the subject expert and can often give you the best suggestion. This has been a very positive experience.

It is also fun to see every stage of the work. The interior of the house is now taking shape. One of the highlights that impressed us is the skylight. It is really spectacular the way it was designed and built. We first saw it on the architecture plan, then the framing, now with the dry wall. I really appreciate the quality work and effort everyone put into the project.

Home addition and renovation

RSHOMES did our house addition and renovated our entire house. We can say that RS homes provide full ranges of custom home service and do quality work. The processing was slow at some point due to weather and other uncontrolled aspects, but was accelerated. And we are able to move in right after the New Year. There are some deficiencies, but RSHOMES responded quickly and all got solved, except grading and some items/touchups to be done when the weather will permit. Overall, we are happy with choosing RSHOMES to complete our beautiful brand new home. Thank you, RSHOMES!

Thank you Eileen you were a great client, understanding when we had the weather delays. Hope the acceleration in work when the weather was better helped to mitigate the weather problems.

Whole Home Renovation

RS Homes worked with us to do a complete do-over of the front exterior facade as well as 2 large extensions and a complete makeover of the interior of our home. We are very pleased with how the overall vision and aesthetic has turned out, working within the constraints of our home's existing structure and layout. Working with the RS team has been a pleasant experience and we were treated with the personal attention and courtesy one could only expect from a family run business.

Because of the decision to add a large extension after the project had already been started, the renovation did run much farther over budget and time constraints than we were expecting so it is difficult to speak to that. As well, this being our first time (and hopefully only) time we have ever done a major renovation on our home, we were a little more hands-on throughout the project than we thought we would be. We are still working out some last-minute kinks but overall, we feel that our practically brand-new house is solidly and beautifully built. Thanks so much, RS Homes!

Dear Emily,

Thank you so much for selecting our team as your builder of choice and for your kind review.

Even though the process and budget were extended because of an extra edition added while the project was in progress, we feel your patience, extra attention to detail and trust in our ability resulted in a home you will enjoy for years.

Again, thank you for trusting us with your dream.

Interior Renovation

We recently purchased a house that satisfied everything we were looking for but the interior was not our taste esthetically. It was clear from our first meeting with Ramtin that he enjoyed helping families achieve their vision, is passionate with his work and very experienced in his craft. We are glad to have a great deal of input during the process but also appreciated receiving expert guidance when necessary. They provided us with many great design solutions that will undoubtedly enhance the interior of our home. So far we have essentially gutted our home and just received approval from city for an extension and now comes the fun part of having the drawings and design come to life. Communicating with the team is very open, pleasant and professional. So far we are very happy with RS Homes and the work that they have done for us and feel assured we have chosen right people to help us achieve our dream home.

Home Renovation

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

I'm doing a major interior and exterior renovation with RS Homes. Everything looks very nice so far. We changed the main floor completely by taking out some walls to open up the space. Kitchen, mudroom, bedroom ensuite, living room and dining room are all brand new. Then we decided to have new stone and stucco on the exterior walls to make it more impressive. I visited their job site a lot and it was always well organized and clean. Unexpected problems always happen when you renovate an old house, but we spent time together to communicate until we find the best solution. RS Homes was always there when I have questions for them. Site supervisor was very conscientious. Good job so far!
