3 level extension and interior gut

The scope of our project was extensive, requiring us to move out for 6 months (March 2018 - Sept 2018). We live in east end Toronto, (Coxwell/Danforth area), our home is semi-detached and approx 80 years old. Work completed: basement lowering (handled by a different contractor), 3 story extension out the back, main and second floor remodeling. Mike was lead contractor and did a spectacular job. Among the many highlights:

- Always working: our neighbours often commented that there were people at our house every single day. Mike did not want to waste any time. He scheduled sub-contractors in a way that allowed progress to be made every day.
-On time delivery: it was critical that we moved back home by Labour Day 2018. We did. That in itself speaks volumes. It was of course a bit hairy in the last two weeks but that is to be expected. Mike and team were still coming by for another month or so after moving in which was not ideal but in the big scheme of things, totally fine.
- High quality: It really came through that Mike did not want to cut corners. It seemed as if he cared as if the house were his own. That passion was evident and shows in the final product.
- Problem solving: Any issues we ran into were dealt with efficiently and effectively. He dealt with unexpected surprises behind the walls, sensitive neighbours, among other things. We met on a near-weekly basis to deal with day-to-day questions/challenges and he always offered a solution to the issue of the day.
-Fairness: this was a big project. It was not perfectly smooth. On occasion we ran into communication issues that led to questions about cost one way or the other. We were totally upfront with Mike about these issues and he was great in responding likewise. Just last month, nearly 6 months after moving in, he came by to pay for a water meter that was accidentally disposed of. It was an amazing gesture of fairness that speaks volumes about his commitment to getting the job done right.

Overall, we would highly recommend Mike and his team.

Main Floor Renovation

Mike and his team completely renovated our main floor (kitchen, family room, hallway, dining room) in addition to two staircases and two washrooms. Mike was very professional and respectful throughout this project. His ability to keep the house clean daily made it easy for our entire family maintain a daily routine. While there were big decisions to be made, it was the attention to detail that impressed us. Mike is passionate about his work. He is approachable and constantly maintains regular communication with the homeowners throughout the project.

Mike, thank you for all the hard work and effort. We were so apprehensive about taking on such a large project, but your genuine enthusiasm along with your knowledge and expertise quickly put us at ease. Your whole team showed such professionalism, respect and commitment. We have attached a few pictures to display your amazing work. To say we were please is a great understatement. You not only transformed our home; you revitalized our lives. Thank you.

Bungalow Main Floor Renovation

Being in the home renovation industry for over 20 years and having experienced dealing with many general contractors I was more skeptical than most when faced with looking for a team that could pull my project together in the limited time that I had. Once I met with Mike and we went over my timeline, budget and scope of work I knew I had hired the right team. Main floor renovation in my father's 50+bungalow came together efficiently and with excellent craftsmanship. His passion and love of the work came through in the work and in his team. I love the new layout and I look forward to seeing this team in action again when it is time for the next phase of my project. Thank you DiRenzo Group!!!

Kitchen and First Floor Renovation

We recently completed our second renovation project with Mike and are extremely excited with the results. Mike renovated our basement over 5 years and we continue to receive compliments on the space. We added a kitchen and Mike worked with our kitchen manufacturer to ensure the space was ready for the kitchen installation. We continue to enjoy the space and have had many family and friend gatherings in the basement. My kids love the space too and have enjoyed a few parties themselves (no parents allowed-lol).

Most recently we embarked on an even bigger project; renovating the kitchen. The discussion started with replacing a few cracked floor tiles. Then we decided since we are replacing the tiles, we might as well replace the kitchen (25 years old but still in good condition). Over the next few months the scope of the project continued to expand with Mike’s recommendations. He definitely saw the potential for the space before we did (ie. lets take a wall down here, lets add a beam here,….) —things we didn’t think of on our own. So after some long discussions, we said YES to a full out renovation of the first floor.

The results have been phenomenal; Mike helped us create a large open space which resulted in a kitchen much larger than we initially had planned on. He brought in professional trades that got the job done efficently.

And let’s not forget the staircase—“no way” we said to adding that in. However, once we saw how beautiful and modern the space was turning into, we couldn’t leave those builder stairs as is; we had the stairs sanded and re-stained, as well as the family room, living and dining floors to match. The space definitely looks complete now. We continue to recommend Mike’s contracting services to our family and friends; many of which have already hired Mike for their own projects.

BATHROOM RENOVATION WITH SAFETY BARS AND OUTSIDE DECK STYLE RAMP FOR WHEELCHAIR ACCESS

Bathroom renovation with safety bars and outside deck style ramp for wheelchair access
Mike and his stellar group renovated my parents' home for my dad as his quality of life will never be the same after contracting Influenza B at the end of March 2017 and experiencing cardiac arrest as part of the sequelae of the deleterious pathogen. This general contractor is a pillar of his profession and sets the benchmark high for his industry. His knowledge of the trade is encyclopedic in nature and there is no project him and his outstanding team of devoted employees cannot handle. Job well done!

House Renovation

We just had an amazing, high quality renovation experience and are so thrilled with Mike and his team at DiRenzo group. We instantly felt we were in good hands when we met Mike. He emphasized that it was important to him that we were happy with the renovation, and he delivered on this by frequently checking in with us along the way to make sure things were aligned with our expectations. He even understood our style and vision, and would suggest options (when we asked) that fit amazing with the design we wanted. On top of this, he insisted on an exceptionally clean and safe worksite, which only added to the positive experience. His team were all very professional and quality focused.

After-care is also important to us. Even with the big stuff done and the core renovation complete, Mike and his team are still available to address any issues or small details that come up. We feel very fortunate to be able to reflect on our renovation experience so positively. Thank-you Mike to you and your team for your wonderful work at our home!

Main floor reno

Mike and his team were amazing! My house looks incredible. They took down 3 walls and had to put up a new support beam. They took down my brick woodburning fireplace and converted it to a modern gas burning fireplace. I had a whole new kitchen installed with an island. They were very respectful and tidy. The site was always left very tidy, which was incredible since I was living upstairs. Thank you Mike and Ariel. I love my house!

Basement Renovation

Mike and his team finished out basement after we underpinned the floor this past summer.

We were thrilled with the quality of work including framing, tiling, insulation and design. We were also especially pleased with the customer service that the Di Renzo group provided and would highly recommend him for future projects.

Basement Renovation

We were referred to Michael of the DiRenzo Group we when looking for a contractor to construct our basement. Michael was not only our contractor but he also offered suggestions to the design layout via consulting with us to understand our requirements.

Michael set out realistic timelines based on the work effort and kept us informed of the status. We had daily meetings to ensure that both his team and our decisions on finishes we aligned.

This was the first renovation that my wife and I had gone through and Michael ensured that we are very happy with the results. We will definitely ask Michael to help us with our next renovation.
