Main floor, kitchen & bathroom renovation

I have used Arash & his team at Summit Contractors for a smaller job in the past. After comparing contractor quotes I decided to work with him again for the renovation of our basement bathroom and main floor including kitchen.

The work is good, but the most important thing about Arash is that he is ethical, kind and will not leave you high & dry. With so much demand for construction, I have found many providers tend to leave things 95% done and call the job finished. Arash makes sure everything is done and that you are happy. This is a rarity in construction today.

His team was also able to identify and fix work that would have led to problems down the road such as poorly routed plumbing.

Pricing is transparent and fair.

Bathroom Reno

Background
We were looking to upgrade our bathroom and consulted with a number of contractors for estimates and ideas. I found that Summit Contractors was the most thorough in their estimate details as some other vendor quotes were quite vague. As part of the discussion, Arash provided good ideas and options. Further, in my initial interactions, I could tell that he takes a lot of pride in his work and is very particular about quality.

Setup and Preparation
We asked that a plastic barrier be put in place to contain the dust, which was done. In addition, a blue protective barrier was put in place to protect the floor. The work areas were swept on a daily basis. However, you should expect that there will still be a lot of dust!

Demolition
The demolition was quick and tidy, with minimal damage to the opposing walls, which were ultimately repaired and painted by Summit. Once the demolition was complete, we reconvened to discuss the layout and options along with materials (e.g. tile quantities) and fixtures/finishes.

Plumbing/Electrical
We requested copper pipes versus pex, which was accommodated. In addition, we saw that they double waterproofed, which is reassuring to avoid any potential water issues. We have great lighting options in our bathroom with modern electronic switches!

Framing/Drywall
Arash made every effort to square up the walls to help ensure the tiles, door, etc. would all be aligned and cohesive.

Tiling
The tiling work was well done. We missed a few items and Arash was kind enough to pick up the jambs and missing grout.

Painting
The painting was in the bathroom, opposing walls per above reference, the ceiling of the bedroom where the barriers were put up. This was all taken care of.

Installation and finish
The vanity, fixtures, tub, etc. was all placed exactly where we requested. We were consulted throughout to ensure placement was where we wanted. We had a minor problem with the door installation that was resolved to our satisfaction. At the time of writing, we are resolving an issue with the glass shower door. Even though the shower glass/door is separate from Summit, Arash has been kind enough to take ownership of the issue to resolve. We are expecting full resolution in the next couple weeks.

Overall
We felt that we were always in good and experienced hands with Arash and his team. He is committed to making sure you will be happy. Thank you Arash, Peyman, Sam, Reza and team!

Multi-bathroom reno + new flooring

Arash impressed us from day one with his sincere and honest approach when it came to evaluating and quoting our three-bathroom renovation project, which also involved the rebuilding of a staircase and the laying of new vinyl flooring throughout our basement.

Despite this being my wife's and my first major renovation and having only heard horror stories from others I'm very happy to say our experience was smooth sailing throughout, with our final cost matching our expectations, and the results exceeding our expectations. When slight surprises were discovered, Arash offered immediate assurances of finding cost-effective solutions (and came through every time) and was upfront and transparent about any additional costs that were incurred during the two-month process none of which turned out to be significant.

Arash uses a familiar team of plumbers, electricians, tilers, and painters who all treated the project (as well as our home) with the same level of care and dedication as Arash himself. His team was especially diligent about keeping work areas as clear as possible, and would regularly sweep up at the end of each workday.

We are thrilled with the outcome of the project and the quality of all the work performed, and would happily hire Arash and his team again.

Kitchen Renovation

Our second project in upgrading our kitchen with Summit Contractors was as successful as the ensuite bathroom we completed with them last year. Arash and his team completed our kitchen renovation on an established schedule and budget. I like working with Summit Contractors as they apply the same level of detail and precision throughout each task and phase of the project constantly reinforcing the expectations before proceeding. Some of the key attributes for having Summit Contractors perform your renovation are job site preparation, aligning skilled trades, ensuring the right materials are used, always maintaining cleanliness of the job site and your home as the project evolves, ensuring expectations for a task or job are meant, and ensuring the customer is satisfied with the outcome. These are the reasons I have used Summit Contractors and will continue to use them for any of my future projects. If you want a renovation to be performed right the first time, on schedule, and established budget, then look no further than Summit Contractors, you will not be disappointed.

Master Bathroom Renovation

From start to finish, Arash and his team were great. Arash listened to what we wanted and helped us through the whole process from planning, to budgeting to purchasing materials to scheduling and installations. Great care was taken to our home while they worked on our bathroom project and all tradespeople were very respectful and did a great job. Arash was involved and very helpful throughout the project and his knowledge of the trade showed especially when unexpected issues arose and he had to find solutions for us.
I would highly recommend Summit Contractors for any future home renovations.

Main bathroom reno

During the winter, we wanted to pre-book a renovation for our main bathroom in the late spring or early summer. With all the manpower and supply problems out there, we soon realized this would be easier said than done. We repeatedly encountered poor or no communication from contractors, with some even coming over to provide a quote and then going totally incommunicado afterwards. A huge pain and waste of time for everyone. Summit was one of the few contractors willing to commit to a specific time period and a specific cost, and we are very grateful to them for this.

Arash and his team kept to the promised timeline, and we are heartily pleased with the outcome. Fine workmanship and a nice bunch of tradespeople to work with. A special nod to Hakim, Omar, Reza, Sayeed and his son; and the tilers (whose names I've forgotten) were top notch.

Arash provided excellent advice and contacts for suppliers all the way along, and he was very accommodating about handling jobs not directly related to the bathroom renovation -- and at a reasonable additional price.

The only reason we're not giving Summit a "10" is that we sometimes found the communication with Arash a little strained. We got the impression that Summit is somewhat overwhelmed by all the work they've taken on, and this sometimes translated into tense exchanges with us and his crew. We wonder, though, if this is true among all contractors these days, what with all the stresses and strains of the pandemic and economic uncertainties.

We also recommend that if you have special concerns about clean-up after each day's work, that you really insist on this and make sure Summit takes care of this at the end of each day. Overall, everyone was good about keeping dust and disruption down to a minimum, but it seems like a little more could have been done, especially where non-Summit tradespeople are brought in. Again, this is probably a problem across the sector, but insisting on this from the start might save some headache and prevent couples from ending up in divorce court!

We look forward to saving up some money and having Arash and his team over again soon for another excellent renovation job. They probably charge more than many contractors out there, but we feel the extra expense was worth it.

Main bathroom renovation

We selected Summit to renovate our main bathroom as we had a very particular design and plan in mind, which required a detail-oriented approach. After an initial site-visit and quote, we signed on with Summit and began purchasing the materials for our design. When we had questions about specifications for some of the products, we would email Arash for clarity, and he was able to provide a response.

Construction began as scheduled, and the demolition was done cleanly and quickly. The floors and stairs leading to the bathroom were protected with sheets throughout, which we appreciated. The dry wall and flooring were prepared with an eye for detail and accuracy, to ensure straight lines and angles, and Nima would check in whenever he had questions about the work. Our bathroom is fairly small, and Summit was able to remove and reduce unnecessarily bulkheads to open up the space as we had hoped.

Waterproofing was provided for the shower, and we requested a shower niche as well. The tile-work is some of the best I have seen - the tiler went above and beyond to ensure a seamless look for our fish-scale tiles in the shower; this is definitely my favourite part of the bathroom. Though there were some issues with the plumbing, Arash was able to get it sorted and stay on schedule. The shower glass was custom-cut to size, and care was taken to ensure that all bathroom fixtures were appropriately centred - all of this contributes to a very polished look.

Due to circumstances outside of his control, Arash was not able to be as present as he typically would which caused some communication challenges for us at certain points, but despite this, the overall the project remained on-budget and on-schedule, and was completed to our satisfaction. We would therefore recommend Summit.

Ultimately, if you are looking for a more affordable project, this might not be the option for you, but if you are looking for detail-oriented and customized work, Summit will be able to deliver.

Hello sh,

Thank you for your positive and honest review. We're very happy that you're satisfied with the whole project and I wish that my daughter wasn't at the hospital so I could have been able to be present more at the job site. Meanwhile we're also trilled to be able to deliver an excellent result for the challenge of fish-scale tile installation and satisfy your expectation. I also appreciate for such detailed feedback and on behalf of everyone from Summit wish you guys to enjoy your beautiful bathroom and I admire your taste to provide such a marvellous design.

Window Framing and Drywall

I am a repeat customer of Summit Contractors -- 18 months ago they finished my kitchen renovation for me and did an excellent job. We enjoy it everyday, and have found no flaws in their work!

Last month I had a 10' x 3' window (& cut-out) installed and was left with challenging interior framing and drywall repairs around the window. I called Arash and he was helpful as always. His drywall guys, Reza and Faro are really good! They finished the job quickly and on budget. I've attached a before and after shot for reference. I highly recommend Summit Contractors and will use them again myself.
