James Hardy siding

Robert is extremely busy but well worth waiting for. He is very professional and followed up to be sure we were totally satisfied. At the time I was recovering from hip replacement surgery so he even cleaned the 10 upper windows for us at no charge.
I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great job done by someone with integrity and expertise.

Exterior Hardy Board Installation

Rob and his team were fantastic. They put the Hardy Board face on our brand new custom home. The job they did was impeccable - like artists working on our home. Every detail was done perfectly and we continue to get comments about how beautiful the home is.

Exterior Renovation

Rob and his team did an amazing job. They were very accommodating, ensuring all of our requirements were met - and sometimes we were changing our minds mid way through! The quality of finish is outstanding and the team really spent time on the smaller details. I found the team was not prepared to settle for sub-standard workmanship or short cuts - of something needed to be done it had to be done well! Well worth the money and we now have a home that looks fantastic and is protected from the elements!

Exterior facelift: new doors, porch railing

PCL replaced three exterior doors on our house. As our home is quite old, built in 1922, any Reno is a challenge. Robert

Kitchen - Siding - Bathroom

We have used Robert and PCL for a bunch of different renovations at our Toronto home - he and the team at PCL has been great for all of them. I would highly recommend PCL for any interior or exterior renovations. The finish and attention to detail is excellent with PCL. Also one thing I love is the end of day clean up - PCL does a great job of this and it is critical if you are living at your house through renovations.

Insulation and Siding Renovation

The original house was built in 1942 and had a couple of past renovations. The reason for the project was that the house was very cold in the winter, especially on the north facing wall. The insulation was the most important factor although we were happy to replace the vinyl siding with James Hardie Plank board and trim. As expected there were a few surprises. Underneath the vinyl was asbestos siding! And some key support beams around the house were rotted. Also as the house was quite old plywood sheets were not used and the house was covered in individual wood boards - which tripled the work of removing the exterior wall in order to spray foam the wall cavities.

We had met Robert at PCL a year ago and took our time getting other quotes and different perspectives. Based on Robert's reviews on Homestars and personal meetings we decided to go with him.

It was the right decision.

The project was delivered on time and on quote, and the work was high quality and thorough. Any revisions to the quote ( e.g. Asbestos ) were discussed in advance and remediated the next day. Robert provided almost daily updates on progress and met many times with us face to face to discuss any issues we had. Robert and his team 'always' over delivered against our expectations.

I would highly recommend Robert and his PCL team for any renovation project. We will be using him for an upcoming bathroom and kitchen remodel.

Exterior Refacing and Insulation

Where to start? Everything I read on here about Robert is true. He approaches the project as if it were his own house. His standards are high which means he is constantly having to fix, change and redo where other trades have fallen short. He takes pride in his work and wants the very best. He won't work with inferior materials or take shortcuts. He stands behind everything he does. He is a great collaborator.
He wasn't my first first choice because we were shopping by price but after several consultations, and at the 11th hour we changed our minds and decided to go with Robert because he was more attentive and respectful in the quoting process. That was the best decision and a lucky one. The only mistake was that we only hired him to finish the exterior. Our top to bottom, inside out renovation and addition project became quite problematic almost from the start. Robert was always there (physically and over the phone) helping us to troubleshoot, find new trades and find alternative solutions to some major issues. By the time we reached the point of insulating and residing, winter had set in and Robert and his crew of merry men were there everyday getting our house sealed and finished in sub zero conditions. They didn't abandon us or rush the job because of the weather nor did they sacrifice Robert's high standard or finish. Robert is truly a good person, trustworthy, dedicated, honest, hardworking and he instills all of these qualities in the people who work for him. I was told his prices are higher than most but when I look back at what others quoted and what Robert delivered, he is worth every penny and the others most definitely would have cut corners or fallen short. Looking back, PCL was the only choice in my opinion.

New Home: Exterior Siding, Soffit, Fascia, and Eavestrough

We hired PCL to do the exterior siding and trim work on our new home this summer (2016).
Robert and his crew were great to work with. Open and friendly.
They always took the time to listen to any questions we had and helped to provide ideas and suggestions on the best solutions regardless of the issues left by other trades.
They take pride in their work and don't just take the easiest path to complete a job. They treat your house like they were building their own.
Our new James Hardie siding looks great.

Thank you Robert V, Robert, Frank, Jack and Sean.

Large 4 month exterior and Interior renovation

In summer 2015, we hired PCL to:
- do a large interior renovation where we demolished our kitchen and rebuilt it in a new location in our home
- exterior reno to remove 3 layers of siding and all insulation and put in spray foam + new James Hardie siding
The job grew because we had to perform several structural repair

Robert and his crew were amazing:
- Robert stepped in to start our job quickly when we had problems with our original contractor.
- Robert provided on time quotes
- Robert maintained good communication throughout the project and took care of our home as we had to be out of the country for the majority of the work.
- The worksmanship and attention to detail for both the interior and exterior were extremely high.
- Robert's crew were very friendly and a pleasure to work with
- Most importantly where we encountered issues with one of Robert's subcontractors who's work was not up to par, Robert had him repair it quickly.
- Robert is committed to the quality of his work and has come back to check on things and ensure everything is operating well.
