bathroom renovation

Bellsmith ( Christian and J.P. ) was a pleasure to work with. They were respectful, consiensous, trustworthy, and very careful of the rest of the house and garden despite the fact that digging and cement pouring were necessary. All trades did exemplary work and were clean, helpful and pleasant people. The job was well coordinated such that little time was lost. They were able to solve all unexpected problems after demolition and still reproduce the architect's requirements. The end result is that the bathroom is more beautiful than anticipated. We have done many renovations with many contractors over the years. Bellsmith is the best company we have worked with.

Renovation and Addition

It is a pleasure to write a review for Bellsmith Carpentry and Renovation. They were hired for a project that involved renovating and constructing a new addition for a semi-detached house, originally built in 1883, situated in the Little Italy area of Toronto. The principals in the firm, Christian and JP, were consistently available, professional and lovely to work with. Our project was seamlessly organized and consequently the renovation and addition were on time, on budget and produced a final result that exceeded our expectations. This is especially surprising given the age of the house and is a testament to the accuracy of their initial project assessment, budgeting process and skill in working in older homes. Hiring Bellsmith Carpentry and Renovation was undoubtedly the best decision that we made in the course of our project. They bring a professionalism and pride to their work that is a rare find and undoubtedly the reason for their success.

First floor gut renovation

These guys are a real pleasure to work with, Christian, JP and their crew are consummate professionals and will put to rest all the horror stories you have heard about contractors in Toronto. Where to start? Well, I''l summarize this way: on time and and on budget and no corners cut. From the first interaction with them everything was transparent, from the quote onwards. More importantly, the quality of the work is outstanding; these guys care about their work, its longevity and the craft they practice. The attention to detail was incredible and they figured out how to do some very tricky things in our place and made them look amazing. When I have another big reno to do I'll go to Bellsmith again and wouldn't have the slightest hesitation in recommending them.

Full Home renovation including Kitchen and Bathroom

I heard terrible stories about home renovation and I am happy to report that they didn't hire this company. Christian was on time, on budget and did excellent work. My Family and I lived in the basement of our home during the renovation and not only was everyone involved skilled and professional they are all lovely people. Everyone Christian hires is at the top of their game. In addition the work site was always clean and orderly at the end of every work day. I am loving my new home and had a great experience with this company from process to final product.

Its a different process when you are working for friends. Things can go south very quickly and friendships can suffer but that was not the case here. This was one of my favorite renovations. From the unique and personalized design ideas to the location being around the corner from my own house. Come no cation was alway open and the best part is that I still get to enjoy the finished product. It was such a joy and a pleasure to be a part of thei fantastic renovation. Thank you for letting us build your dream home.

Full home renovation

I would thoroughly recommend using Bellsmith Carpentry & Renovation. Christian and crew just completed a 4 month renovation of our Victorian row house and we couldn't be more pleased with the results. From the initial estimate through to final finishing touches, Bellsmith Carpentry & Renovation were true professionals and treated our house as if it was their own homes. The plumbing, painting, roofing & electrical trades people they brought in were also perfectly chosen and provided an equally high quality of work. Particularly impressive was the level of communication from Christian including regular updates and photos as well as quick responses to any questions. This gave us total confidence and peace of mind in the process. Christian, J.P. and the rest of the team are true professionals and craftsmen and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them for your next project.

Major architectural home renovation, kitchen, bathroom, steam shower, staircases, windows and doors

I hired Bellsmith Carpentry & Renovation as one of the contractors for a total main-floor gut job that included all new gas, electric, water, and heating ducts, straightening exterior walls, brand new high-end architectural windows and doors, staircase structural work. On top of this, following an architect's plan, Bellsmith added high end finishing, countertops, custom millwork, and an extremely challenging precision tile-job in our newly enlarged showpiece bathroom. Throughout Bellsmith worked with good humour, professionalism, and courtesy- befriending our family and kids in the process. THey provided accurate budgets, informed us of how on-the-spot decisions would impact timelines and budgets so we could make informed decisions, and went the extra-mile to ensure a quality job was done even in the areas that no-one would see. Bellsmith took pride in accomplishing tricky framing and duct-work to ensure cold-air returns in all rooms of a house that was never designed to have them, for example. I wholeheartedly recommend Bellsmith Carpentry for your renovation; these guys are one of the best. Our home has now been featured in Design Lines, will soon be in another major national magazine, and its features have been added to thousands of Houzz "ideaboards". Grab these guys while you can!
