New stair treads, risers, railing, posts & pickets

We were very fortunate to find out that Dean and his team also does installation of stair treads and risers, sanding and staining of stairs and railings, stair finishing, and installation of railings, posts and pickets.

To keep costs down, we originally thought we could keep our railing and stain it to match our hardwood floors. However, we found out even before we met Dean that our railing was not up to code so we would have to look at replacing it. This was unexpected and we had a lot of concerns, especially since we were already way over budget. Dean went over and above our expectations by offering us solutions to keep costs down. This would have lowered his quote, and I know there are many contractors who would rather add to the estimate! We really appreciated his efforts to work with us.

We decided to replace the railing as it did look outdated and explained to Dean that we wanted to keep the design very simple. We were not used to posts as our old railing had none. Dean took notes on exactly what we were looking for and when he stopped by to take the templates for our stairs, he also brought along samples of posts and pickets. They were exactly what we were looking for, and Dean offered great advice in terms of design and functionality.

Our old railing was quite shaky and we were shocked when Dean told us that the original pickets were barely installed to the floor by ¼” if that!

Once again, Dean explained the process and answered all our questions and concerns. Honestly, I have yet to meet someone so patient, as we were obviously quite anxious about the results

All my calls, emails and texts were answered in a timely manner which goes to show again how committed and professional Dean is.

Dean finished the project ahead of time (again) and the results are stunning. As you can see from the pictures, it’s a huge transformation! We’ve had so many compliments and the only complaint we have is that we should have done it long ago! The pickets and railing are solid and secure and the entire project adds incredible design and value to our home. We cringe when we look at pictures of our old stairs and railing! Thanks again Dean for a fantastic job!

New hardwood floors

We’ve had carpet in our home for almost 25 years so the decision to install hardwood flooring was not only costly, but one that we spent a lot of time and research on.

Dean was highly recommended to us and while we had other estimates, there were many reasons why we chose Dean. He’s a very down-to-earth and friendly guy, very professional and experienced. I had so many questions and Dean answered every single one of them with the utmost patience. Renovations are stressful, and I think there were times when I even asked Dean the same questions!

We always wanted a modern baseboard design with no quarter rounds or shoe molding, which we actually hate! Dean and I discussed this at length and he explained that he could do as we wished, but there would be gaps. I was quite disappointed and thought about installing the baseboards without any shoe molding. I have to tell you – Dean knows what he’s doing! During the installation, I was shocked at how uneven our floors were. The gaps were very visible and in every single room! Thankfully we took Dean’s advice (at the 11th hour) and purchased shoe moldings. We were even able to find a design that was very discreet and matched our baseboards. We would have been extremely unhappy if we had just let Dean install the baseboards alone. We’re just glad that we took his advice!

We were still nervous right up until the day of installation, but Dean, Jason and Rachel arrived on time and were very focused on their job. They took the time to answer our questions and concerns (and we had many), and we learned a great deal about hardwood floors, installation, and the care and maintenance required.

We especially appreciated what an excellent communicator Dean is, to both his clients and his team. We knew exactly what time they would be arriving, what would be done, and the timeline for the project. They were extremely punctual and hard working. Whenever we had a request, it was noted and done, no questions asked, and more importantly, NO attitude!

They also did an amazing job on our fireplace area. Our fireplace stones are curved where they meet the floor and we had no idea what the finished result would look like. We had previous suggestions to cut the stone and slide the hardwood planks underneath, but we wanted to leave the fireplace intact and untouched.

What Dean and Jason did was scribe the planks. The edge of each plank was cut with small waves/ridges to match the curve of the fireplace stones. We actually watched Jason while he cut the planks and as you can see from the pictures, the result is amazing!! The workmanship which was time consuming and very detailed, far surpassed our expectations!

I’d like to add that we were in renovation mode for three months straight when Dean started, and we were anxious to complete everything. So when Dean finished ahead of schedule, we were so surprised. We were also lucky that Dean was able to accommodate us and have our hardwood and stairs done by mid December. This was a very busy time since apparently everyone wanted to wrap up their renovation projects before the holidays!

It’s unbelievable what a difference hardwood can make to a home. Our hardwood floors and stairs are absolutely stunning. We actually can’t stop staring at the results and have had many compliments!!

Although this review is a little late since we had to finish other renovations, we absolutely wanted to share our experience. Dean and his team did a fantastic job, we loved having them in our home, and we highly recommend Dean for any of the services he provides.
