Bathroom Renovation

My wife and I are extremely pleased with our bathroom renovation! This was a down to the studs redo of our existing main bathroom. Chicasa completed the job on time and on budget. Along the way, Ali and his team made many great suggestions in terms of design, tiles, finishes, etc. that would complement the space. Ali was very accessible, sending texts from time to time as to ideas and solutions. As a Creative Director, I am extremely detailed oriented and my expectations of all things design is very high. I’m happy to report that the design and execution were flawless. I’m amazed! Everything looks great and works great. Mo was also very collaborative, super nice and highly skilled. He went above and beyond to ensure we were happy with the work. No detail was overlooked.
Projects like these can be very stressful, Chicasa has been an incredible partner and collaborator who deliver. I would highly recommend them especially to those who are detail obsessed. We will definitely look to them again for future work. Thanks guys!!

Kitchen & bathrooms renovation

This company deserves A+ all around and highly recommended. I received quotes from a few other contractors before contacting them, but these guys gave the most reasonable price and timeline. They have the friendliest most professional people to deal with. Their service is excellent and reliable. They did a great job renovating my kitchen and 2 bathrooms. Everyday they showed us some of the work and asked our opinion to make sure we like what is being done. I like the fact that they are professional and don't need supervision. Ali had a great taste and gave us tips for cabinetry colours and finishing touches. We are very satisfied with the service and would contact them again for future work in the house.

Basement renovation

Chicasa is truly the best renovation company in Toronto. They are honest, knowledgeable and very professional. I’ve dealt with a number of different companies both for my home and apartment renovations over the years, but I got the best service from these guys. My basement reno went without a hitch and as planned. They have a huge selection of material and they can accommodate your budget. Thanks Ali and Mo for your dedication and professionalism. Will work with you in the future for other parts of the house.

Bathroom and laundry.

The space is small and a lot of things had to be done. Two bathrooms renovated into two bathrooms and a full size laundry in the same space. I'm not satisfied because I settled for a change of design because of space and size. All in all it is a lovely Reno end result. This picture is of the upstair bathroom. I really like my main floor bathroom the most.

Dear Tawadoud,
Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. At Chicasa Design, our number one goal is to make our clients happy. Unfortunately, as you said, we had to work with the small space available, that's why the design had to be modified. You mentioned it was a "lovely reno" and you were happy with the end result, so I am not sure why you gave us a 6/10 rating. It doesn't correspond with the content of the review. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to address your concern.

Basement renovation with Bathroom

We are overall very satisfied with Chicasa's renovation work on our basement. We needed a new bathroom and furnace in the basement and wanted a high end, modern and clean finish to the entire space. They delivered on all these items and more. The team was always professional, courteous and accommodating during the project.

Hair Salon Renovation

Chicasa Design completed my hair salon renovation. Great deal of work was done and the results are phenomenal. Make sure you meet with Ali in advance a few times to tell him what designs you like. Their designer is really professional too.

Bathroom and office renovation

Small bathroom project 4-5 weeks.

Project management:
No written time line, or labour plan. They seemed to be overwhelmed with oher project. Often working half days or not at all. This had direct result on inflating the total construction time by more then double. Additional, work was not scheduled in a standard pattern tile was completed before drywall. Cutting corners by not stripping the bathroom to the stud (per the detailed scope) resulted in quality issues in drywall and trim install.
Quality:
Drywall and trim install is uneven, shower faucet had chrome stripped during install. Chipped tiles installed.
Generally seemed overwhelmed.

Hello John, initially you had given us a 10/10 rating; It is not clear why you would all of a sudden change your entire review? You had previously mentioned that everything was perfect and that you were satisfied with all the work!! This is why I am confused.. if all these issues, then why give us a 10/10 to begin with? Are you sure it is not about the final $500 that you still owed us and refused to pay? Our company strives to make all customers happy! We have never ever left any work incomplete or any detail unattended. You guys were very indecisive from the get-go and did not have a clear plan. We modified the plan for you and you both okayed it. You kept adding details to the plan (hence the price change) and we patiently worked with you to keep you happy. We give all our clients a 1-month window to go over all the details and inform us of any issues they may encounter. We would then gladly come back on-site and resolve all those issues and ensure they are satisfied. Unfortunately, you cannot inform us of your issues 2 months after you have approved everything and the job is completely done. We would be glad to make an exception for you and come back to check everything.
