Toronto Basement Renovation

Home Guru did an amazing job on our full basement renovation. We did a full-gut reno including leveling the basement floors, putting in radiant-heated floors, and full bathroom redo. The results are great and working with Aaron and Justin through the process was extremely easy and smooth. Would highly recommend their work!

Full basement renovation & structural work

Justin and Aaron renovated our basement entirely and did a stellar job! From the planning stages to the final touches their team was efficient, courteous (I was pregnant at the time) and did their best to stay within budget. They were fantastic to work with and we would use them again for another project!

Basement renovation

Home Guru did a wonderful job renovating our home. The workers were professional, reliable and respectful of our space throughout the whole process. The crew took our basement back to the studs, changing it from cold and uninviting to a warm, beautiful space that our family now enjoys on a daily basis. Highly recommend for projects big and small.

Major home renovation

If you are searching for a home renovator who you can trust, really trust, which is a rarity, I would strongly recommend using The Home Guru. Aaron and Justin are honest, hard-working and extremely intuitive, a value really important in home renovation when unexpected events arise. If you are reading this, you have no reason to look elsewhere for a home renovation company. You will be treated with respect, integrity, honesty and with top notch workmanship.

Great experience all around

Home Guru Inc. took on my wide-ranging and quirky renovation needs (basement, porch, and garage) and handled everything with a professional attitude and quality of work. Their ability to coordinate all of the various trade experts showed me that they treat their suppliers respectfully and paid them in good time (this means they show up when needed!). The entire reno assignment was done on time and on budget. All around awesome!

Whole House Renovation

We originally approached Aaron and Justin about doing a kitchen and bathroom reno at our 100-year old house. From the first moment I contacted them, they were incredibly responsive to all of my questions (which were many!). Leading up to the signing of our renovation contract, it never took more than a few hours for them to get back to me with any question, and that trend continued on throughout the entire renovation.

As we had an older home, of course the kitchen and bathroom renovation mushroomed into a much larger project, but Aaron and Justin were consummate professionals throughout the entire process. Our budget and timeline barely increased from what they originally quoted us for, and they were very faithful to stick as best they could to the original budget we discussed. We had regular updates on how things were going, what they were costing, and regular invoices for installment payments. Originally the project was supposed to go on for 6 weeks, but by my estimation came in at about 8 weeks all told - which is insanely fast, considering we added HVAC work, subfloor repairs, and an entire second floor to our renovation scope. They regularly worked on weekends and late into the evening to get our project done as soon as possible. We were able to live in our home for most of the renovation solely because of how clean, neat, and respectful they and all their subcontractors were of our space.

I would work with them again in a heartbeat. I think this was probably the least stressful renovation in the history of the world, as they just made everything so easy. Our home is completely gorgeous now, all thanks to their hard work and design suggestions. If you're thinking about renovating anything, call them today!

Whole house reno

The Gurus redid our kitchen, bathroom, open space main floor (took down 3 walls), whole new HVAC system (and ducts), permits, new walk out to deck, new deck, waterproofing foundation, removed mold, refinish floors, new floors, insulation, and the list goes on. Not only did they do an amazing job, ON TIME (permits took 8 days only!!!!) and on budget but the process was smooth compared to all the stories we had heard from other renos. The Gurus were responsive (even on a Sunday evening), HONEST, and realistic. I recommend them 100%
