Kitchen reno

They are great with ideas but follow thru is terrible. on my third counter top and a very expensive bookcase that was to go under counter top is garbage. The contractor did not countersink a screw. Now it has a nice gouge and big scratch. They had to rebuild my dining room wall because they measured wrong. this is now a 7 month project and I will be doing business with another company for my bathroom. I don’t want them touching anything else. It’s a same because they are a Canadian company and use Canadian products.

We are sorry you feel that we didn’t do our very best on this renovation as we strive to give the best experience for all our customers.
The first countertop was a misunderstanding of how you wished it to be finished. The countertop was removed and replaced with the desired overhang. The second one had a manufacturers blemish and so the Countertop Supplier replaced and reinstalled to which you expressed the seam was not to your liking. The countertop was installed by the best laminate countertop place in Barrie and the owner assured us that it was a standard seam as laminate countertop seams are glued together with bolts to hold them flat. As this is not quartz or granite there is not a way to eliminate feeling the seam a little bit.
The scratch on the bookcase is a very easy fix as it was built here in Barrie from our custom cabinet builder and the top can be replaced within a few minutes. Please contact us to arrange replacement of the top.
The wall extension was due to a measuring error unfortunately. When this was brought to your attention you were asked if you wanted the two end cabinets remade or if you would rather extend the wall a couple of inches to keep the larger cabinets. The decision was made to extend the wall and that you would take care of the painting after the patch was complete.
Again, we are sorry that you are unhappy with our efforts to make you happy with your new custom kitchen. We wish you well with your future renovations.

Great Team, Excellent Work, Very Happy!!!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Luke, James and the entire HOME Team to redo our kitchen and main level...if we could give them 11 stars we would. From concept, to installation the HOME team exceeded every expectation and Luke's design to maximize our space blew us away....we absolutely love it and love entertaining in our new kitchen! Luke said he wanted to knock it out of the park and they did. You can shop around, but for quality, budget and overall pleasure to deal with HOME is your one stop contractor to suit any project.

Kitchen reno

It was a real pleasure to work with Rebecca, Luke and the rest of the team on my kitchen renovation. Any questions or minor issues were dealt with promptly. All steps from the initial demo to final details were handled with a high level of quality. I am very happy with my kitchen and would work with HOME again.

Kitchen Renovation

To the Staff at H.O.M.E.

Just a short note of heart-warming thanks for remodelling our kitchen. Wikipedia defines 'Interior design' as the art and science of enhancing the interior of a space to achieve a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing environment for the end user. H.O.M.E. has done this for us and we are truly grateful!

Rebecca's vision, clever choice of many Canadian-made products, and devotion to go beyond the call of duty when working with busy suppliers combined with Luke's and James' skilled installation and coordination of their drywall, electrical, HVAC and plumbing associates has resulted in an incredible end-product that continues to impress us and visiting friends and family.

Thanks, again for our 'dream kitchen' - it was worth the wait! We wish you well and hope you realize how special the work you do is. This is a team that can deliver dreams if entrusted with conceptual design, superior products and execution, however, allow sufficient time for delays in this demanding market.

You're always welcome in our home.

The Duquettes.

Basement Renovation

Rebecca, Luke and James were exceptional right from the design concept to the final finishing nail. They were also supportive and attentive. They listened to our ideas and recommended new ones that we had never thought about for both beauty and function. The trades, painter Lee and HVAC and plumber were all efficient and tidy. Our reno occurred during the winter months and they worked tiredlessly to complete the job by Christmas for our family to enjoy.

Two bathroom renovations

James is amazing. He is so knowledgeable and his attention to detail is fantastic. All the staff we dealt with were very helpful but James is a special person. His customer service is of a very high standard. He is so responsive, honest, open and wants you to be satisfied with the end product. We were so pleased with the first bathroom that we engaged him to do the second bath. Their time frames are realistic.

Bathroom renovation

Very pleased with the end result of our complete bathroom renovation. From the guidance through the planning process to the attention to detail throughout the construction. The team were respectful and courteous and always cleaned up as much as possible at the end of each day. We will definitely look to them for any future renovations.

2 bathroom renovations and a partial kitchen renovation.

Our home is older and with it came some challenges such as uneven floors, older plumbing, etc. The guys took the extra time and went above and beyond to ensure everything was done right so we wouldn't have further problems down the road. They took the time to answer my questions. They took my design and made it better. Our bathrooms are show pieces now and our guest rave about how beautiful they are. They saved us money by custom building some pieces in the kitchen to make an awkward layout work that would have been far more expensive otherwise.
