Bathroom Renovation

Peter Y., Ph.D., CHP, Mississauga. Ontario

I engaged DHC Reno in a contract for a total renovation of a bathroom in my house, with a major change being the replacement of an existing bath tub by a roomy, tiled shower stall accessible by a sliding glass door plus a new, high-quality toilet seat, over-head flood lights, ventilators, vanity cabinet, mirrored medicine cabinet, vanity lights, etc. Despite some delay in the pre-determined schedule, the job was completed with excellent results, leaving me with a great product well worth the money I paid. The delay, however, was because Frank, being a competent workman, fell sick in the middle of the project and was hospitalized for emergency surgery. During Frank’s absence, Dave, the head of DHC Reno overseeing several renovation projects simultaneously, came and completed the renovation work himself. That was an indication that Dave was a very responsible, professional person that he would do his best to give his customer a satisfying product, a product he himself can be pride of. There were minor flaws in the project, but Dave came back and quickly fixed them. He even fixed flaws left in a renovation project previously conducted by another contractor, and for free.
Base on my experience, I would highly recommend Dave and his company DHC Reno for household renovation projects. You might need to be a bit patient to cope with unexpected delays. But, at the end, you will get a great product well worth your money.

Custom Ensuite shower, tiling, electrical

Worked with Dave at DHC Reno to replace hardwood with tile in main floor entrance/closet/powder room as well as master bedroom ensuite bathroom shower, tile, lighting and vanity.

Dave followed through on his quote, and accommodated some additional requests of mine and did not adjust completion timing in spite of these.
The work was completed in 4 weeks and included demolition/removal, plumbing, electrical, tiling and painting. I'm very satisfied with the work and it looks great.

Dave and his team were courteous and professional and I would recommend them to be considered for other jobs such as these.

Backsplash install

Received a quote after a visit to my house to see the job. Backsplash was shown to Dave and job was confirmed.

Installer Frank (surprise it was sub-contracted out) was not qualified enough to install the herring bone backsplash as it is uneven and spaced incorrectly.

Initial timing of job was 1 day and it took 3. Installer complained about our quoted price and it was reflected in the quality of work.

I had to contact DHC when job was completed to come back and clean it there was thick grout left on that couldn’t be whiped off.

Very disappointed and wish I could rip it off and start over

Unfortunate response as job was quoted for aprox one day.It took two because herringbone is a job that requires many cuts and I missed this.The job wasn't subcontracted as client says .Frank is an employee. The job was left with excess grout and we came back and cleaned it the very next day .This took several hrs but client was happy with result or we wouldn't have left until she was.Gaps on a tile mesh are glued and spacing cannot be altered. To give a 0 rating for this job shows ignorance on the client's lack of knowledge. once this was brought to my attention we came immediately to rectify the excess grout and the job turned out beautiful, so I can't understand this response. We are not perfect but highly qualified for this job.It is well within industry standards to say the least and very sorry clients unhappy. client paid in full after the second day which shows it was satisfactory.When we returned the very next day all grout was removed and marble polished to clients wishes.She stood 2 inches away from backslash with our light to examine our work. perfection isn't fair to any trades person and client received a good deal on return for all work.Slanderous statements only help my cause and show a total lack of ignorance on her part with the exaggerated vindictive lies.

Kitchen & bath

I have worked with Dave from dhcreno for almost 20 years. As a Kitchen & Bath Designer I have done numerous successful projects with Dave. He brings a wealth of experience as a skilled carpenter to the project and he's an experienced problem solver and every job requires one!

2nd Flr Reno, hardwood floor, doors, baseboards, custom wall unit, staircase

2nd time hiring DHC Reno. Dave and his carpenter Frank and crew ripped out the entire 2nd floor carpet and replaced with engineered hardwood, replaced all doors, trims and baseboards, and built the staircase by replacing carpeted staircase with new threads and risers, new posts and rails, stained to match the new hardwood, everything looked good. Dave gives good cost-saving advice without compromising quality. Carpentry work is very high quality and very polished, floor boards laid in nice symmetrical pattern, baseboards and trims cut perfectly at every corner, very professionally done. All concerns and odds and ends were addressed, project delivered on time, crew cleaned job site. In addition, Dave also built custom cabinetry for our TV unit, nicely done. Dave is an honest trustworthy contractor and gave regular updates. He and Frank are perhaps the best carpenters and renovators out there in Toronto/Etobicoke, very highly recommended.

Bathroom Renovation

I hired DHC Reno to do a complete bathroom renovation. I am very pleased with the work that was done. Dave said the work would take 2 weeks and he stayed within the budget and timeline and was always professional, helpful and responded quickly to any questions or concerns I had. Dave referred me to the Silverwood Design Centre and I picked up all my tiles there and love how everything looks. Dave also went above and beyond by picking up items I had ordered for the project on his own time. Overall it was a rather stress free process and I would not hesitate to recommend DHC Reno.
