Revision to Permit Drawings

I needed a super fast turnaround on some changes to my revision to permit drawings. I had hired a separate designer/draftsperson to complete my home drawings some time ago - who unfortunately is nowhere to be found now that I need to get over the finish line.

In a panic I started searching for someone who could revise my drawings on short notice. I found Robert who was willing to help. Within a day he made the revisions and I was able to submit those changes to the city.

Robert was extremely responsive, friendly and able to get the job done quickly. What an amazing gentleman. I will be sure to use him in the future and can't recommend him enough.

Residential Additions/ Renovations

I have worked with Valente Cad Studio on a number of residential projects ranging from building additions, renovations and restoration projects.

Valente CAD Studio delivers a professional approach to each project and provides quality CAD work. As important as the quality of work, Valente CAD studio manages each project diligently with attention to detail and timely deliverables.

Valente CAD Studio was involved in the redesign of a damaged roof for a custom built home in the Durham Region. The site work involved field measurements and preparing new building plans complete with floor layouts, roof plan, elevations, cross-sections and design specifications all required to obtain a building permit. The building
permit was obtained from the municipal building department.

My experience with using Valente CAD Studio has been very positive and rewarding and highly recommend their design services.

Structural beam design for kitchen renovation

I have worked with Roberto from Valente CAD studio on several residential projects over the past year. Every single project has been a great experience. In our last project we needed to replace a 10 foot beam with a larger 13 foot LVL beam to remove a wall and expand the kitchen. Roberto can to assess the situation and then started working on the structural design to specify the new beam size and post. He also sent us a couple of reports showing that the steel beam in the basement would will support the new loads from the new beam. He is very professional, knowledgable and always takes the time to answer any questions. I highly recommend this company to any person who plans to do any construction project.

Internal residential renovation.

Roberto was very easy to work for and very diligent in providing us feedback on building code requirements. He was also quite flexible when changes were required. He was very conscientious.

Basement permit drawings

I worked with Robert to get permit drawings stamped for my client to submit to the city. He is very knowledgeable with the Building code and the entire permit process. Robert maintained open and efficient communication during the entire process from the minor variance application to obtaining the building permit for construction. I would not hesitate to contact Robert again and look forward to working with him on future projects.

Basement permit

We had a great experience with Robert and am very happy to have engaged in his service. Robert was responsive, timely, and overall showed a high level of professionalism and a sense of responsibility. We’ve reached out to serveral designers before deciding to go with Robert. After conversing with several other designers, whose attitude ranged from indifferent to down right rude, Robert’s professionalism was a breath of fresh air. We would recommend Robert’s service to our friends and family.

Main floor and kitchen project design - excellent

Work on our main floor and kitchen is still underway, but we could not have gotten this far without Valente CAD Studio. He made the design & Toronto permit process easy for us. We already had an idea of what we wanted, but Robert also offered great advice especially with our kitchen, of which he has a lot of experience with kitchen design. Working with him perfectly met our needs of a straightforward and affordable design and permit process. Now if we ever get the money together to redo our basement, I would look forward to working with him again!

Hi Lisette, thanks for sharing about your experience with us and I am glad that you were happy with the kitchen design. Bringing the kitchen, dining area and living space altogether into one big room will make your home feel much bigger and lighter, giving you much more space in the downstairs area. Also it is easier to watch your kids in the open space. Not to mention that having an open kitchen it is nice when you have dinner guests but don’t want to spend the entire evening away from them to prepare your gourmet meal. I am very happy that the permit was issued right away with no issues and hope you will have your dinner with guests very soon. Hope to serve you again in the near future. All the best, Robert.

A masterful interlock design

Robert Valente of Valente studio provided us with a beautiful, effective design that adds much to the house; it maximizes the functionality of the various spaces and ties everything together. See pictures below. His price was very reasonable.
Looking backward we recognize that his service is truly a must to any intelligent home/business owner who considers interlock work. Since it separates conflicting interests of design:
• For the independent designer - Beautiful flowing design, that will provide beneficial use, take advantage of the property features and affect the value of your home.
• For the contractor - to cut the fewest stones, to have the simplest designs and layouts so it takes no time to calculate, measure or plan. This maximizes their profits. Also, they typically do not like to plan much, calculate, or measure exactly (otherwise they will be in a different work area), some cannot.

Interlock work has low barrier to entry, and artistic conception, style and design are not typically of areas of study and/or interest to interlock contractors.
We found dealing with Robert a pleasure, he is personable and affable. His outstanding design is a source of many compliments from visitors, neighbors, passersby and just last Thursday our mail man caught me outside: “this is an incredible Job you have done with the interlock, you know I see them all”.
Thanks Robert.

Hi Tzvi, thanks for sharing about your experience with us and glad that you were happy with the work Valente CAD Studio performed and the thoroughness of our design. Curb appeal is the attractiveness of a home's exterior, and your home exterior now will demonstrate a pride of your ownership, inspire curiosity and draw-passer by to look in further. Not only can your new front interlocking walkway add value to your home, it can even encourage friendly relationships with your neighbours. I am happy that the design came out great and the pictures look just amazing. If we can be of any help in the future, please keep us in mind. Thanks again for your business, it is greatly appreciated. All the best, Robert.

laneway garage design

Roberto was responsive, professional and extremely knowledgeable. His confidence and keen attention to detail reassured me that our permit would be granted without any problem - and that is what happened. He was very familiar with bylaws pertaining to our project. There were delays on our side and Robert was always available to respond to my inquiries promptly, even when we hadn't spoken in weeks. He is self motivated and does not need reminders to get the work done. I would hire him again for future projects and would recommend his services to anyone. I'm glad I chose Valente Studios based on the other reviews here on Homestars.
