Bathroom/Laundry Renovation

It was a genuine pleasure working with Ian and the Willistead Renovation Group. The project was conducted professionally throughout and the tradespeople that Ian employed were all experts in their craft. The highest of standards were maintained, which put my mind at ease as I have the highest of standards. The work was done completely, on time, and on budget. I was consulted throughout, my questions were answered and the final project was EXACTLY what we were hoping for. Ian went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy with the project and that everything was finished to our satisfaction. If I ever had another project, I would undoubtedly use Ian and the Willistead Renovation Group without reservation. My only wish is that I knew them earlier! It was an absolute pleasure working with Ian and I give Ian and the Willistead Renovation Group my highest recommendation.

Kitchen renovation

I found Ian and his crew to be very professional. I had a total kitchen renovation done. The tradesmen were very good and always cleaned up at the end of the day. There quality of work was great and they were always on time. Can not say enough good things about this company. I showed photos to Ian of the dream kitchen I wanted and his company delivered.

Major Renovation

I cannot recommend Willistead Renovation Group highly enough. Ian, his lead, Jarek, and his entire crew were honest, dependable, courteous, neat, and efficient. Ian predicted when this major reno would be completed and brought the job in on time and on budget. He and his workers were a pleasure to work with. His workers took pride in their craftmanship and each of the trades spoke highly of him when he was not around. The attention to detail all along the way was remarkable. I have only positive things to say.

Thanks a lot, Rickey, for your kind words and the many referrals you've given to friends since. It was such a pleasure to work with you on the complete roof-to-basement renovation of your home. The house looks amazing and we are as thrilled with the outcome as you are. I know you loved the Heated Floor in your stunning Master Bathroom this winter and now that spring is here I am sure you will enjoy, even more, looking out on your garden from the new Addition, with it's soaring ceiling and windows. Very best wishes, Rickey, from everyone associated with Willistead RG

Kitchen renovation

We were very pleased with the quality of Willistead Renovation Group's work. We moved into our home in the summer and chose WRG on the recommendation of neighbours who were doing work with them. We had a full kitchen renovation and needed new walls, flooring along with plumbing and electrical. All along the way, Ian at Willistead Renovation Group coordinated and pulled together the project. They started on time, kept on schedule and had our home ready when they said they would finish. Best of all, they kept our house clean and liveable throughout the renovation. I definitely would use them again and recommend them to others.

First Review

10/10

Extensive renovations

I was impressed by Ian from his first visit to start putting together a bid for us. His eye for detail and natural mastery of potentially complex issues were immediately evident.

We bought a 1908-built downtown house that really needed some love. It had never seen extensive renovations or repairs and some serious problems were threatening drainage issues and water damage; that much was evident from our original (independent) inspection. The house also needed a thorough going over as plaster and floorboards were within an 1/8" of their lives. The kitchen and only bathroom were disgusting disasters.

Ian took everything in hand quickly and professionally and came up with a plan that met our needs and budget. His wasn't the lowest bid we got, but it was definitely the most thorough, and he stuck to it, only adding what we asked him to as the project moved along.

Jarek and the crew do very quick and careful work. I was very impressed by their attention to detail, and how they wouldn't hesitate to fix any small faults I found along the way. The subcontractors Ian brought in were no less impressive. Everyone was a real pleasure to work with and did excellent jobs throughout the house.

We now have all new plumbing, spray-foam insulation, reinforced joints, an improved electrical system, new roofing, a new basement walkout with sump pump, a backflow valve, new floors and drywall, new bannisters, a completely rebuilt kitchen and bathroom, and a new powder room. My wife and I are thrilled with the results and have to restrain our enthusiasm when showing the house to family and friends, lest we lose all sense of humility.

I can't recommend Ian and everyone at Willistead highly enough. I feel very fortunate not to have any first hand experience with contractor horror stories. Quite the contrary: the whole process has gone exceedingly well. Do yourself a favour and give them a call.

Thank you for your extensive review, Brad. Like most of our clients we were referred to you and we are proud that you feel able to now refer us. This is an exciting phase in your life with a new practice getting underway, as well as a new home and we are thrilled to have played our part. Starting the planning with you whilst waiting to take possession and your detailed nature greatly helped to speed things along, so that you could move in on time (and on budget!). Thanks again on behalf of everyone connected to Willistead RG.
