I wanted to add a gas line for a Barbecue outside our house which was under renovation. Looked around here and but eventually found Ken Kijiji. There he listed his TSSA and License and rough pricing per job. I had called several others but I just felt the information he provided was more forthcoming.
Work was done in July 2016. Ken was very punctual which is super important when it comes to renovations because there are so many people and sub projects running at the same time.
I was actually at work at the time, so I would speak to Ken or my wife over the phone to properly communicate what needed to be done. Ken also speaks Cantonese which was a huge bonus because my mother-in-law is handling alot of the renovation and the communication for her is easier. I myself only speak English and had no difficulty in communication.
Job was done fairly quickly, and yes one hole had to be made in the basement ceiling but the other contractor patched that up in a jiffy. We had our line lead start from the furnace room with a cut-off, run a little more than 12 feet to outside, and run another 9 feet with another cut-off, all securely mounted to our exterior brick and painted. The run was very clean, and the cut-off clearly labelled in the furnace room.
All in all, I would use Ken's service again, and have no problem recommending him to anyone.
Sidenote: I think Homestars is a very important site to gauge the reputation of vendors (we are using 2 directly sourced from here). However, do not let non-"Best of" vendors scare you away, some are like Ken, who have few reviews but maintain a very high degree of customer satisfaction, they just may not promote themselves enough.
No, he did not ask me to fill this review after the work was done (but he should).
