Phase 3: bedrooms, bathrooms

This is the third time that we have contracted with Dependable Renovations to do work on our home. As with the previous 2 times, they did a fantastic job. The work was done to a high degree of quality and was finished on time and on budget. Working with Barry and Lisa is so easy, and Adam is a great site manager. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Home renovation

Our beautiful old home underwent a stunning transformation to a modern open concept configuration. It was a dramatic change, and wouldn't have been executed as smoothly without the Dependable Team overseeing the many moving pieces. We made a number of small and not so small refinements to the concept during construction and Barry and Adam did a great job of making our ideas a reality, while Lisa expertly coordinated the changes needed. We thought we were in good hands with Dependable and they proved us right.

Custom Built-ins

We have had the opportunity to work with Dependable Renovations over the past year, and we would highly recommend them. It has been said, "If you want to find a reputable contractor, ask the trades that work with them." Our company has had the opportunity to work with many different contractors and Dependable Renovations is one that stands out. They exhibit the highest level of professionalism, and their level of care for their clients is evident in every step of the process. We would not hesitate to recommend them to our clients, friends, and family.

Thanks so much for your kind words, Jolanda! It seems to be more “bad than good” most times when a trade/builder relationship is in discussion but we’re so pleased to work with great people that make it an easy win-win. Appreciate all you guys do to make our jobs go seamlessly! :)

Mud room renovation

Our mudroom was also our laundry room, and it was a nightmare. We didn't know how to make better use of our space: The floor was covered in a combination of laundry and shoes, and there was no room to walk in the door, as the washer and dryer were right behind it. Clothes hung to dry and we had to use the hallway to hang our coats and hats. There was no space for hampers, no space to fold, and no place to walk in the door and leave our outdoor clothes. Interestingly enough, it also had 11 foot high ceilings, which we found to be a sad waste of space. Barry from Dependable Renovations came to look and immediately talked about what great space for seasonal shelving! He told us the rough cost of having our washer and dryer moved to the basement, and then the cost of locker systems and shelving.

We were pleasantly surprised with how easy the process of renovating was, as this was our first major renovation we had ever done. Lisa from Dependable Renovations set up a meeting with all of the contractors who would work on our room, and then was quick to give us a quote and detailed calendar of who would be working when, along with everything that needed to be done. Everything worked like clockwork, the people Dependable Renovations work with are incredibly knowledgeable, honest and friendly, even taking the time to meet our highly timid dog.

Our basement was impeccably set up for our washer and dryer, and our new mud room is so lovely, we often joke about how we should eat our dinner in there. The amount of storage we now have is incredible and having the laundry moved out of our mud room was the best thing we ever did. We have four locker-style areas for each member of our family's outer wear, we have a shoe rack storage system, and we have beautiful cupboards above it all for seasonal storage. We even have a lovely bench to sit on. We LOVE our renovation, and Lisa and Barry from Dependable Renovations made it SO easy. We will most certainly be calling them in the future when other renovations need to be done.

Bathroom(s) Renovations

Integrity, quality, and value.

We had a fantastic experience with Dependable Renovations, and are thrilled with the outcome. Lisa and Barry provided detailed plans and budgets, and maintained excellent communications throughout the project. The trades were true artists, and very respectful of our home while on site. We will absolutely use Dependable Renovations for our next project.

Hey Greg,
Thank you so much for your kind words! We LOVED working with you & Tara... wait can I say that again?! We LOVED working with you guys!! We hope you enjoy your gorgeous bathrooms for years to come - they really did turn out to be the "gems" that Tara described at the beginning.
Thanks for trusting us with your project - crossing our fingers for the lottery so we can get started on that custom home!
All the best,

A great company to work with for our renovation!

Dependable Renovations made the venture into a major renovation so much less stressful than we anticipated. The scheduling of sub trades was on time, and the work was completed one week earlier than expected. The company owners, Lisa and Barry, are outstanding to work with and were readily available at anytime to answer questions. They handled our many questions and uncertainties with grace and patience and we were treated with caring and concern, not simply just another project client. Their hands-on approach, coupled with their excellent organization and time management skills, and genuine personalities and strong personal character gave us a great sense of confidence that we were in good hands for our kitchen renovation. That meant a great deal to us, given that we heard so much in the news about the perils of hiring a renovation contractor. We would not hesitate to recommend Dependable Renovations to anyone.

Commercial Renovation

Dependable Renovations are 'DEPENDABLE'! You will not be disappointed with their work. Communication is easy and information flows well. There are always little blips at the finishing stage and they were taken care of immediately. The workers they hire are clean and very nice.
