We contracted with Strathmore Construction Ltd to replace the ceiling, repair a wall and prepare the floor for installation of new hardwood flooring in our living room/dining room.
It was our belief that when the previous owners had carried out a major renovation in 1987 they had upgraded the electrical wiring in the rest of the house to a standard still compatible with the 2020 electrical code. When the ceiling was opened up it quickly became clear that this was not the case and that the wiring was an amalgam of original knob and tube plus various additions made prior to 1987.
To make a long story short the cost of this project escalated enormously to accomplish the rewiring required by the present-day code. David of Strathmore Construction skillfully coordinated and facilitated the activities of the electricians and the flooring installers. Once priorities were set and an upper limit established for costs David and his team competently and conscientiously completed the project for the agreed upon amount.
David is a meticulous craftsman with a keen understanding of the older houses of the East York area. We are happy with the work he did for us and would recommend him and his company for renovations of this nature.
