All we knew is that our kitchen needed a makeover. We had Andrew and Susanne from Verve studio come out to give us an estimate. The design ideas they suggested blew our mind away. They gave us amazing possibilities for our space that had never crossed our mind. We were always kept updated on the work. And their attention to detail was great.
They were on time, within budget and the only way I can put the transformation into words is Magic. They created magic and gave us a kitchen that we love. It is contemporary, functional and beautiful.
(I have already recommended them to all our friends.)
A couple years back I worked with Andrew to do a condo Reno. I was pleased with the work so I hired him to do a fairly significant Reno on a older home I just purchased in Toronto. Unfortunately there were a few delays along the way because of some unknown surprises so this slowed down the project. He did about 30% of the agreed contract but when it was time for Andrew to complete his work he decided that he no longer wanted to work on this project. My understanding is he took on way too many projects to handle so it was easier to just leave then to fulfill his agreement. I never thought he would do this to me given our history. I referred so much work to him and paid on time and he screwed me out of a lot money. Also a lot of the work he did was really bad and we need to rip it all out and start fresh. This is what happens when most of your workers are sub trades
If he can leave my job he will leave your job so please please beware!!!
Dear Shai, Its unfortunate that you feel it necessary to lash out and be so critical. We were honest in summarizing the challenges of your project and the backlog it created in our schedule – mostly brought on by your effort to manage it without the necessary experience. We were also honest in summarizing the high calibre work we had completed and the fees you had paid to date. We stand behind our reputation for excellence in service and quality as authenticated by our many satisfied clients.
We recently had our basement bathroom completely gutted and reno'd. The bathroom prior to the renovation was a mess. It smelled like sewage (which meant something was leaking sewage gas somewhere), it was freezing, the pipes kept on freezing in that room which meant the whole house would freeze. There were no good qualities about the bathroom and we bought the house knowing we'd have to do this reno soon.
Andrew and Susanne are exceptional. They came for the initial visit and within moments I could see how Andrew was taking the time to think critically about what needed to be done. They were courteous, genuine and honest. They never promised something they weren't going to deliver. Andrew was attentive and knowledgeable, and considering he had my father, and engineer, to answer to, that was a big check on my list. The price was not too over the top, and worth every penny. Andrew took the time most days (I would say almost everyday) to call me and tell me how the day went and what was next on the list. He was always around if I had a question, often texting back immediately or calling me within the day. This is something that is incredibly important to me, because I had a lot of questions.
Verve completed our bathroom in the exact time they said they would. Their contract workers they hired to do the work were also exceptional (and I mean, like, the nicest people we've ever met). I would hire Verve again for any work I ever do in the future.
Andrew and Susane of Verve Studio team did the great job right from initial stage of planning, scoping, drawing & Sketching per limited basement available space, framing to finish. In all stages of construction Verve Studio team all well deserve A+ rating. They understand our requirements well, Andrew did visualize per my rough sketch and put the visual sketch in real life in immaculate condition. We are proud of our basement and appreciate quality work of the entire Verve Studio Team..Well Done Team Verve.
