Bathroom Renovation (two bathrooms)

We had Benchwood Builders completely renovate two bathrooms. One main floor powder room was renovated an expanded to include a shower. The other one, an upstairs family bathroom, was renovated to have a refreshed appearance and the main doorway into the bathroom was expanded and replaced with a barn door. We are very happy with the final product and we absolutely love our two new bathrooms, not to mention the added value to our home for going from a 1.5 bathroom to a 2 full bathroom home.

Mike and his team were very nice to work with and we always felt safe and comfortable speaking with them and being around them, as well as having them in our home to complete the work. They were always respectful of us and our space and put us at ease with the project. Mike took an active interest in all of the choices that we made and often made suggestions for materials that would work out even better than what we had thought of in order to obtain the look we had in mind. He was always available to discuss any questions or concerns that we had and assured us that no question was a "dumb" question.

We love our bathrooms!

Basement renovations. Full bathroom, bedroom, family room and bar.

The older house we live in was never changed from 1957. They gutted the basement moved plumbing and put in new ductwork and electrical. The bar was a surprise design that I love and a mantle over the new fireplace was a gift, a handmade piece.

Kitchen, wall removal, bathroom and other interior renovations

Mike is a true professional that will work within your budget to give you exactly what you're looking for. He possesses qualities not easily found in contractors. He's honest, trustworthy, talented, quality-focused, and he surrounds himself with people that share his values.

Our project started with us looking for someone to install flooring in an 80 year old home that we purchased in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We were thinking of doing some renovations to update the home but decided to hold off mainly due to the fact that we didn't know any contractors in the area and weren't ready to embark on any major renovations until we found someone we could trust. When we found Mike, it was with the intention of only installing new flooring in the house. When he was working on the flooring, we got to know him and his crew and we started discussing our other ideas as well as budget.

Needless to say, what started as a simple flooring project, turned into a full-out renovation of the main level and making some updates to the second level (new doors, trim and Mike applied his expert craftsmanship to modifying new closet doors to accommodate for a sloped ceiling). Mike and Gail's (his lovely wife) floor plan ideas turned out to be perfect for the space limitations. The extra touches they also recommended are now our most loved features, such as the wood beams in the dining room and open kitchen. We converted a main-floor bedroom into a much needed hall closet, wider entryway and a large bathroom with a beautiful custom vanity and large shower.

The new kitchen is now the focal point of the home with a modern layout, huge island, yet still has that "cottage charm".

We'd like to thank Mike and his crew, Leo and Matt, for a wonderful job. We would definitely work with Benchwood Builders again for any home reno project, big or small.

Entire first floor of a raised bungalow

I could pinch myself everyday living in this house. Mike and his team were absolutely amazing and incredible. Wonderful personalities and beyond professional. Beautiful attention to detail and are all committed to delivering the best of their individual talents for the reputation of the company. They take pride in their professions and were so easy to work with. Any concerns or questions we had were met and answered with humbled confidence and support in a prompt timeline. We cannot thank Mike and his team enough for their generosity and kindness. We are so very pleased with our home. And we will be using Benchwood Builders in future projects.
