Bathroom, Powder room & Flooring

Designer lipstick put on with the wrong hand and without a mirror is the best way to describe our experience with North Shore Bathrooms... The design process and concept put together by Mitchell was great but the execution was sorely lacking -- finishing scope not completed, "extra" work done to cover up cut corners and an unwillingness to own up to fixing deficiencies (including incorrectly (at best) or uncompleted bathroom venting resulting in significant airspace moisture that now must be fixed). Almost a year after the last work was done, we're still coming across cut corners in the install work. Frustrating (and costly) to say the least.

The scope of work included a complete bathroom (with lots of tiling) and powder room refresh (with sub'ed out plumbing -- at least that was done well!) as well as 2 levels of new laminate flooring in our townhome,

North Shore Bath was not the cheapest quote we had but we decided to make the jump based on the first consult impressions with Mitchell...

Related -- I contacted the Baeumler Approved program (@B_Approved / #BaeumlerApproved) with my issues and they had little interest in following through on an investigation into the work, doing little else than saying they'd put North Shore Bath "on probation pending other complaints". The Baeumler Approved program means very little for the consumer - I'm sure membership has it's privileges.

####### Response to the Company Response ########

I don't argue with the premium materials (i.e. "designer lipstick") and while the install progressed well (and the review you asked from us to help you out was during installation) the finish / completion fell short... The "free" painting (which I actually agreed to pay for as extra scope) and baseboards (which made no sense the quoted floor install did not include replacing baseboards but I would have considered paying if they were not so hastily installed - no amount of filler makes up for the uneven cuts and odd shims to fill floor gaps) certainly doesn't make up for the scope left incomplete.

Regarding the bathroom ventilation -- From the beginning of the project, you fully knew I had strata approval (incl funds) to put a new vent in the roof to improve ventilation (the main focus of the project!!) and even provided the strata roof contractor to do the work. All you needed to do was coordinate the work and connect to a new vent. Instead, you said the "HVAC Inspector" (who either should have his license revoked or simply doesn't exist -- feel free to clarify) confirmed the new (much more powerful) exhaust fan was "venting outside through the connection to the existing ducting." While the new fan certainly pulled moisture out of the bathroom, little did we know it was being pumped directly into the ceiling... There is no "concrete wall to see through" and the existing ducting was barely 6ft long and open ended into the airspace -- I know as I've seen the snake camera footage.

The "gorgeous bathroom" we were left with has a hole in the ceiling where an exhaust fan should be, cracks in the shower header due to the drying of moisture blown direct into the airspace plus the deficiencies and unfinished scope that you walked away from including no back splash, off-centered light fixture, a couple gaps in the grouting and unfinished floor transitions (tile to floor and stairs) - to name just some.

Compared to renovations completed by other contractors in my neighbour's homes in our +40 year old townhomes, the difference in finishing quality and attention to detail is striking.

Kudos where due, your design and materials selection were great and spoke to exactly what we were looking for but it is regrettable (and expensive) that completion did not live up to the concept.

I'm sorry you feel that way Brian but as previously discussed multiple times we hooked up your ceiling fan where it's been hooked up for the past 30 plus years.
We removed all the mould and mildew from your bathroom re-tiled it using premium products and installers.
We cannot see through concrete walls like I discuss that with you we did check the ventilation was blowing out but like I said since your Units are connected it must have been your neighbours as yours blows over into your bedroom because it wasn't properly done right from the builder.
That's why you're experiencing mould like I stated to you on your ceiling now and I was happy to come back and fix it for you decided to go with another company however.

Also when your bathroom was completed you & your wife where very happy even given great reviews and we did all the flooring in your home and gave you baseboards installed for free as well as a painting for free.

We went above and beyond but it's never enough I know you enjoying your bathroom and your floors you're just simply venting over something that your builder did 30+ years ago. The reason we did your bathroom was because the mould wasn't getting out because of the fan we fix that issue and you received a gorgeous bathroom unfortunately the ventilation in your building wasn't hooked up correctly to begin with not my issue.
You're more than welcome to call me anytime to discuss further
take care

Bathroom tiling, Schluter install, and kitchen backsplash

I reached out to Mitchell looking for professionals to help me install a Schluter system in two showers, plus tiling. Mitchell was always responsive ensuring that all our questions were answered, plus giving us sound advice. I met Mitchell on a Monday, then he had his tile expert in working the following day. It was so great to get someone in so quick as our reno has delayed many months now. This was all while juggling multiple jobs, trying to satisfy all his customers.

Pat, who was the professional who completed everything for us is absolutely amazing. Not only was he very respectful of our requests, he kept the place clean, balanced different tasks to ensure my other trades were able to finish, plus took tremendous pride to provide the best quality of work. I have already received many compliments of his work.

Overall, I would be happy to recommend Mitchell and Pat to others, as our experience was a great one.

Remodelling home

Mitch and his whole team at North Shore were amazing from start to finish. From giving me ideas for a whole floor renovation to sourcing the products and of course the job itself. He was on time and kept everything within budget (READ THAT AGAIN!) On time and kept within the original budget!! I think that's the first time a contractor has done that for me.

I will definitely work with North Shore again for any renovation needs in the future!!

Supply Materials

Needed some quality Schluter Kerdi products for a bathroom renovation I was doing for a customer and contacted Mitchell. He was able to locate and deliver the products I was having difficulty finding all in the same day at a competitive price. It was a pleasure dealing with someone who takes customer service seriously.

We Love Our New Bathrooms!

After I gutted and rebuilt our two main bathrooms I contacted Mitchell to install the tile. My wife and I had already picked out the tile we wanted; a large and heavy 12" x 48" tile as the main tile and a ledge stone for a feature wall. All together about 400 sqft.Mitchel gave us a very reasonable budget to work with and would install the Schluter System in the shower and bath areas.Aaron came out to do the tile work. For the 2 weeks he was here he was like another family member! I was doing other parts of the overall house renovation and often we would break for lunch together like "old co-workers"He was meticulous in his work, very professional. One of the things we appreciated very much was that he would call in the morning to give us a heads up to when he would arrive...giving us a chance to get out of bed and have a coffee, before he did.When a problem or issue arose, he would communicate it immediately and we could find the best course of action rectify it. When we were finishing the shower we noticed that the cover plate for the shower valve didn't quite cover the hole in the tile. He said; "No problem." and broke out the tile and replaced it.All in all, we are very pleased with the work, the cost, but mostly the people. I wouldn't hesitate to ask them back when I do the basement bathroom!

Tile Floor Setting

Our first tile setter did not have any commitments to help us to replace our kitchen floor. It was not done correctly and took nearly a week just to get half way on our (13' x 14') kitchen floor. We found North Shore Bathrooms & Flooring through online search and thanks to them for their awesome work. They not only cleaned up the mess, but they fixed it in a very knowledgeable way also efficient, as a result, we have a much nicer look to the kitchen floor.

Reliable, On Schedule, on Budget

#1 contractor in my books. I received the MOST reliable professional service from Northsore. Every other work i will be doing is with this company. On time never broke project schedule, kept project budget and produced a one of a kind end product. The packages offered by Norhsore makes the scope simple and easy. I did a bathroom reno on a revenue property and did the whole job over the phone. I HIGHLY recommend Northsore to anyone and everyone who needs anything done.
