Bathroom Renovation. Do not hire these guys

Jim & Josh Recollet seemed like pretty good guys when they came by to give us a quote. They had beautiful pictures of renos they had done and good reviews so we chose them to do some serious renovations to our home. Turned out this was a horrible decision.

Almost everything they touched was shoddily done. For a guy with over 40 years of experience, you would think someone would know how to tile properly. Jim does not know how to tile. Our bathroom had to be redone by another contractor and $2500 worth of tile had to be thrown out. The schluter system they installed also leaked causing water damage. Josh tried to install baseboards and on a 2 foot span, was too lazy to remove the existing baseboard and actually joined a new baseboard to it. Looked butt ugly on a 2 foot span and even Jim said it didn't look right and to do it properly (i.e. remove the old baseboard and put in a new section where there isn't a cut in the middle).

I have heard that they are no longer doing renovations in the Toronto area but if they are, I am writing this review so that no one else goes through the same experience. Their prior reviews are very good so either they are fake or they had subcontractors that did better work. Do not hire these guys!!

First Review


Addition & Reno

I recently purchased my first home and added a small addition plus renovated the kitchen, bathroom, moved some walls, improved the stairway to the basement and did a stucco finish to the front of the house. The people at Recollet Homes were very easy to work with and stayed within my budget, they were good at sourcing the material to keep costs down and achieve look I was going for. Also really helpful in the design stage where they showed me the layout and concept images of what it would look like afterwards. I found everyone to be friendly and professional, went over and above my expectations. Price was fair, job was completed in a timely fashion. Excellent job!!! :)
