Bathroom remodel

Aaron, Justin and Ian were fantastic. We had a small(ish) project to redo a bathroom. In the planning stage they proposed excellent suggestions to enhance our original ideas. They worked with us upfront to set all expectations so there were no surprises as the project went along. As issues arose (as they always do!) they communicated them clearly and handled them promptly and professionally (and fairly). Great quality of work - we're thrilled with the end result. Happy to work with them anytime.

Kevin, thank you so much! It was wonderful working with you both and we are extremely happy with the end result too. The finishings you chose work well together and you now have a beautiful ensuite to enjoy everyday! Thank you for the opportunity to help improve your home.

Home renovation

We used Home Guru to do a large renovation at our home in Toronto. They gave us a new kitchen, bathroom, fireplace, foyer, cabinets, storage areas, drywall, and outside stairs.

The guys at Home Guru (Aaron, Justin & Ian) have done a lot of this type of work and were great to deal with. They had the right trades on the job at the right time, and went above and beyond to make sure that the quality was high and we were happy with the project and results. This is a large project and it's our home, so trust is really key. We completely trusted them in everything they did. They were above board about costs and the progression, and we had great communication throughout.

It's an older home, so it comes with its challenges and they discovered we had an issue with old pipes. They were on top of it and recommended the best way forward and got it fixed quickly. We're done now and are thrilled with the results! We'd wholeheartedly recommend Home Guru.

Thank you Shirley,
We are thrilled that you are happy with the results. It was really great to work with you and Alain and we hope that you enjoy your newly renovated home for many years. We really appreciate the opportunity to work with you. We know that choosing the right contractor is important and a little scary at times. Finding good people makes all the difference in the world and we are equally happy to have found great clients like you!
Wishing you and your family all the best for 2023.

Main floor / Kitchen renovation

At a high level, our project consisted in
- a kitchen remodel
- removal of a load bearing wall
- changing a rear window into a french door
- redoing the flooring throughout the main floor.

We selected Home Guru after meeting with 5 different contractors and we are very happy with our selection.

Aaron and Justin are honest, hard-working, dependable and professional. Our site manager, Ian, was also great to work with.

They guided us throughout the whole project, made great recommendations when we were unsure about our options.

The project overall went very well. Within the timelines that were discussed originally and within budget that was agreed to. The site was kept clean

They use an application that helps manage communication with everyone (CoConstruct) and for me that was actually a great way to have all communications and information in one place. It made exchanges quick and everyone was in the loop at the same time.

I would definitely use them again for renovations in our house and have no problem recommending them to anyone who is looking to do renovations in their home.

Thank you Home Guru for giving us a great experience with our home renovation.

Underpinning + Waterproofing

I can't rave enough about how great the Home Guru team was during this process. An house underpinning is a big project to take on, especially living through the digging process. They were very courtsey, very clean and quick at completing the project. We have hired them on to finish our basement in the near future and will probably be our go-to contractors for any future projects. I would highly reccomend them.

Thank you for your help.

Main Floor Renovation For Single Family House

Home Guru did an amazing job completely renovating the main floor of our single family house. The job was finished in 2 months, ahead of schedule and on budget despite the many supply chain issues and extra items we added to the scope.

Justin and Aaron are honest, hard-working, dependable, professional, easy to work with and very knowledgeable – and really nice people as well. We completely trusted them and their recommendations and the whole process was very smooth. Their Project Management tool ensured we were kept in the loop at all times and they were super-responsive and patient when we had questions. Also their sub-contractors were professional, reliable and respectful of our space.

If you are looking for a home renovation company you can trust, I would definitely recommended Home Guru and will definitely use them again if we do another reno.

Ensuite Bathroom Renovation

Aaron and Justin were a pleasure to work with. They were professional and punctual and always kept us updated on progress and next steps. I liked using the app they use to keep everyone on the same page and keep a concise record of conversations. The work was A+ and they delivered on budget. Would recommend!

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.
