We were looking to do our kitchen and Al was referred to us by my wife’s friend. We had a few quotes already from other contractors but weren’t really satisfied with the quality and value we were getting.
Al came in for a quote and immediately understood what we wanted to do, and had pictures of kitchens he had done that had a similar look and feel. He even referred us to a designer who gave us excellent advice and had great things to say about Al so we decided to move forward with him. Best of all his quote was very competitive.
Al did a great job of explaining the work that would happen and the transparency was helpful as what started with a simple kitchen Reno evolved to a full main floor job. Other contractors told us what we thought we wanted to hear regarding the flooring in the kitchen but Al was very forthcoming with the pros and cons of our flooring options and ultimately the right decision was to change the hardwood entirely on the main floor. Turned out to be a great decision, we’re very happy with the change in direction.
Al showed a lot of flexibility as we kept adding to the scope (powder room redone and entire house painted) and costs didn’t escalate out of control. We’re very happy with the work and quality and absolutely love our main floor.
So happy that we wanted to secure his time and do some minor work in the basement, which is ongoing now.
Al and his team were very pleasant to work with and their attitude of treating the house as if it were one of their own really showed.
One thing to make sure about is timing - we had a lot of changes as the job evolved which complicated the timelines so I’d recommend open communication so that timing expectations are set in advance.
Overall we highly recommend Al and his team.
