The time had come to update this nearly 100 year old home semi in the Beach. I used HomeStars to research and then reach out to my selected contractors; HomeStars then added a few of its one, and one was Ward Group. Great first meeting with Austin and Andrew, and while their ultimate quote was slightly higher than others I received, they brought something to that first meeting that none of the others did and that was critical thought to what I wanted to do. A lot of "yes no problem" from the others; Austin and Andrew noted where what I wanted to do might cause real issues.
In a nutshell this was a gut of upper and main floors; resizing and complete rework of upper floor bathroom; new staircases; excavation, underpinning and full finishing of basement, including new 3-piece bathroom; new front porch and yard landscaping.
A great level of communication and workmanship was brought to this project, from the architect and engineer to Shawn, Tommy and AJ on the ground, all of whom took care in what they did and where they were doing it, including in all dealings with my neighbours, about which I can't express enough gratitude. They also worked well with the designer for the project; no butting of heads. All was was done safely and as promptly as could be done during COVID, timing was only thrown off slightly. And aside from a couple of blips that the house itself threw into our plans where something needed adjusting, all of the changes in the work scope came from me, so no negative surprises at all, only positive.
I'd highly recommend this crew for anything you're planning, big or small, but they're on to my deck next!
