- [ ] With the cost of rising real estate, it is difficult for young family to purchase a home. With that being said, eight weeks ago my husband and I had to remodel our partially finished basement because our son and his family were moving back home. We had only six weeks before they move in. So we contacted York General Contractors on Homestar. Ronnie and Mo came to our home to give us an in home estimation. They were very professional and had a clear understanding of what we needed. They took measurements and made suggestions for the kitchen and other areas in the space . Over the course of seven week, Mo and Ronnie put in a three piece bathroom with three recessed lights , a walk-in closet with a recessed light and accessible by a pocket door, a full kitchen and remodel the already existing living room with 16 recessed in th ceiling , new railings for the stairs, laminate flooring throughout the space, remodel an existing bed room with a recessed wall for our dresser, sound proofing in the ceiling ,insulation throughout the space and a new layout and hook up for our laundry area, in the now much smaller furnace room. The finished space is exquisite. The time and effort they put into their work produce a beautiful end result. During this time, Ronnie and Mo became a part of our family. They are very trustworthy and honest. We felt very comfortable leaving them in our home as we both work. We’ve formed a life long bond with Ronnie, Mo, Mina and Mary. We will hire them again in a heart beat. My husband and I are now living comfortably in our new basement and our son and his family are living in the rest of the house with our youngest son. Thank You Ronnie and Mo

Create basement laundry room and finish two rooms and hallway

Mo and Ronnie did a terrific job finishing the partially renovated section of our basement that included a laundry/furnace area, bathroom and hall. They took out a divided wall/closet we no longer wanted and built another wall to enclose the washer/dryer, furnace and water heater as a separate area with two entrances, so that the rest of the room is now an excellent office space. We love the new arrangement of the space, which we did on their advice. Besides new ceiling, potlights, new drywall as needed, and baseboards, they put in a commercial grade laminate floor we love (and at a very reasonable price). Half of our basement now looks super. We liked their work so much that we had them go ahead and get us the flooring to complete the other half of the basement (our overcrowded workshop), which we'll have them do as soon as we empty it out. Overall, these two men are extremely professional, a pleasure to work with, and very fast: they completed our job in less time than they had projected and were very reasonable in terms of costs. We will continue to call on them in the future!

Installation of washer, dryer an dishwasher in basement apartment, including all electrical and plumbing work required.

Ronnie and his partner at York Contractor were exceptionally good. Smart, competent, honest and trustworthy. They showed up on time, worked very hard, and completed the job on time, exactly as discussed. Their pricing was fair and reasonable. I was very pleased!

Supplied and installed a railing on the basement stairs

Ronnie & Mo arrived punctually to do the work. It was not an easy
railing to do as the wall had 2 levels. They did an excellent job.
We are very happy with their professionalism and would hire them
again. They also did 3 small jobs for us and wouldn't accept any
compensation which made us very glad we hired them.

Full Basement Renovation, plus a few other small projects

Ronnie & Mo have been good to work with and obviously knowledgeable since day 1. We decided to have our unfinished basement fully renovated (about 1,100 sqft) and also have a couple of side projects done around the house (removal of a couple of non-structural columns, replacement of 2 interior doors with solid wood glass-insert doors, and relocation of some lighting fixtures).

We shortlisted from a large number of providers and although Ronnie & Mo were not to cheapest, they were well reviewed by previous customers and had spent the most time providing detailed quotes, ideas, and responses. General response time via email or texts is within 24 hours, which is quite remarkable on its own.

They were good in communicating the status of the project, as well as starting on time, while cleaning up at the end of pretty much each work day. They are also good in providing interim updates which are important as smaller, previously unclarified decisions are often required to be sorted out for large-scale home renovation projects.

Workmanship is good, as well as logistics management, so the project completed on time and within the stated budget without compromising quality of work. Smaller details / requests / fixes were all completed as one would expect from an honest, hands-on company.

Highly recommended! In fact, I've already recommended them to 2 other customers. Don't hesitate to give these guys a call if you want to have general renovation work done and judge for yourselves. I don't think you would be disappointed. Pictures can't do the work justice but I've attached some any way! Check them out.

Full basement renovation

Mo and Ronnie were amazing to work with. What else can I say about these guys work? Trustful, punctual, experienced, detail oriented. My wife and I after decided to renovate our unfinished basement, we did an extensive search on contractors and short listed it to four contactors to come for in-house estimation. We actually were very impressed with Mo’s attention to detail and thoughtful suggestions. They both spent more than an hour looking around and finding out our requirements of renovation. York General Contractors quote was not the least expensive, the detailed offer was comprising most of our quality and requirements, though. Even I tried to contact the company’s previous customers to get more information about the quality of job done. They spoke highly of quality of work, work ethic, professionalism and trustebillty. That was what I was looking for from a company who is going to renovate my basement. Mo and Ronnie did the grate job and I could not be more pleased with the results. They showed up every day on time, suppled required material according to contract and cleaned up every night. Sometimes it would happen to me asking technical idea because they had so much experience to draw from.

I highly recommend York General Contractor for your next basement renovation. You will not be disappointed.

Partition wall to create two bedrooms out of one room

Ronnie was terrific. Provided a quote and began and finished the job exactly as promised. They were very respectful of our home, worked quickly and finished in record time. I was so grateful for how quickly they were able to complete the job. They even matched new baseboards to the existing ones in the rooms. I highly recommend their services!

We found Ronnie and Moe after they had worked for my neighbor who are fully satisfied with their services. I called them to come and we talked about redesigning and remodeling of the kitchen first because there was a mysterious water leak beside dishwasher. They had brought a variety of high gloss design for cabinet doors which we agreed on one and some sample of quartz counter top for selection. Then we talked about basement ceiling to put drywall, paint and LED pot light. Also, floor and stairs to be removed old carpets and put new laminate on floor and Oak wood on stairs. In the main time we agreed to fully renovated the main floor washroom and put new custom made vanity, toilet, fan and LED pot light. After signing contract they started on time as we agreed on. They came everyday on time and we noticed everyday a big change in the house. They started from Kitchen and after fixing the nasty leakage and tearing down kitchen opening to make it bigger. Take all flooring out to reach underneath plywood. They made a new drain plumbing for sink and water for fridge. Then until they receive the cabinets started to do the basement finish. After installing ceiling drywalls and paint they put LED pot light. They also installed laminate on floor and made the space really neat. In the mean time we agreed some extra projects: to renovate our first floor bathroom and paint all interior walls and stacco ceiling and put pot light on main floor ceiling. They had received cabinets and was busy for installation after tiling the kitchen floor. After kitchen they have started bathroom to demolish and remove all out. They also installed four new doors. In the bathroom we got, custom made vanity with quartz counter top and under mount sink, glass shower door, all floor and wall tiled and LED pot lights on ceiling. They have added two more person for painting and did all within 8 weeks as we were expecting. They worked as a professional team and did everything in one shot. Very punctual, trustable and loyal team. We fully recommend them to our friends and dependents. Also, we talked about our next project when summer comes to do main floor hardwood.
