Basement Renovation

Alex and the whole team did an excellent job! From the design phase to execution, we are beyond happy with the way things turned out. The crew was very trustworthy, professional and provided us with great advice along the way. They completed the job on budget and schedule and it turned out better than we hoped it would. We would recommend Carrerra to anyone and are grateful we used them!

Highly recommend

We cannot say enough good things about Carrerra Design. They recently finished our basement and it is outstanding. They made our vision come to life and were very collaborative. Alex and his team were amazing. There is nothing they can't do: herringbone patterned tile, molding patterns on statement walls, custom barn doors, etc) They gave us the work schedule and stuck to it and kept us informed every step of the way. They worked full days (into the evening sometimes, too!). We would recommend them without hesitation. Great people who do great work. We are thrilled with how our basement looks and it has become the go-to spot for our family.

Basement Renovation

Why we chose Carrera?
-Read the online reviews and really liked how contemporary their past projects looked.
-Was the only contractor that had the courtesy to reply back on the same day.
-As a Chartered professional accountant, I was pleasantly surprised how everything was correctly itemized and priced on the estimate.
-Never asked for all the money to be paid in advance.
-Had a can do “attitude” with no aggressive sales pitch

How was the experience?
-I work from home, so I was worried that my work would be impacted. Every contractor that came to the house was on time, professional and knew what to do. Many days they worked from morning into the late evening and we really appreciated their commitment.
-Delivery of materials, scheduling of contractors, removal of garbage was all coordinated perfectly and we were always in the loop.
-All of our concerns and requests were taken seriously and corrected.

How was the finished product?
-Everything looks perfect from the staircase to the bathroom.
-Pot lights, light switches and wall plugs were all placed to code and had no issues with the inspector.
-Flooring, base boards, drywall, tiling and painting was perfect.
-No issues with the workmanship and would definitely use them again for other projects

Overall we were just lucky to come across Carrera.

Alex, Festis, Johnny, Demetri and Mike worked really hard to create a top tier product on schedule. All team members were professional, courteous, and polite!

Amazing basement and so glad we chose Carrera!

Complete basement renovation

When we decided to do our basement Renno we interviewed multiple contractors but the minute I met Alex I felt he was more knowledgable and experienced and I just had a good feeling about him. He took his time and explained everything to us as this was our first major Reno. He was professional and straightforward. He said his timelines and his “which were very comparable and slightly better than others, the job was finished early with excellent quality. Alex’s team Johnny Dimitri Festus and all the rest are The hardest working young man I have ever met did and they also did a great job. Alex was even willing to go above and beyond for us. My husband was away when I had a disaster strike my kitchen drain clogged probably from 22 years of grease and food, I tried everything to fix it although nothing was working his clock had nothing to do with the Reno a separate pipe all together yet when I called Alex for help he came right over and he spent several hours there late into the evening trying to help me now that’s a good contractor and a good man. My husband and I are 100% happy with our beautiful new basement and would highly recommend Alex and his team to family friends and coworkers. Thanks Alex and team for making our dream a reality.

Best Decision We Made! We love our new finished basement and home office!

With our growing family and remote work arrangements we made the decision to finish our basement and set up a home office. This was a big decision, as we did not know what to expect. We met with 4 contractors and decided to go with the Carrera Team. It was their honest communication and commitment to the customer experience that made our decision. Best decision we made! Alex, Festus and Muneeb were great to work with throughout the entire renovation. They were very responsive and accommodating anytime we had questions, requests and changes. Our son in under 2 years old and takes naps. They were very accommodating to his nap schedule, which we appreciated. The craftsmanship and finished product was amazing! Alex and Festus take great pride in their craftsmanship and it shows. We had a lot of changes throughout. The sense of urgency and responsiveness was greatly appreciated. Both Alex and Festus would take the time to understand our request and made sure it happened right away. We were very impressed with the entire Carrera Team’s strong work ethic. This company is best in class. We highly recommend working with the Carrera Team for any home renovation projects. We love our new finished basement and home office! Thank you Carrera Team!

Toronto Washroom

We hired Alex to do our master washroom. He did a great job with the tiling work and the Schulter shower system. His price was fair and he made sure to show us before tiling that the based was indeed waterproof. Happy with the results.

Hamilton House Renovation

Alex and co bid on our home renovation job in Hamilton. We needed to finish part of our basement, add washrooms, kitchens and flooring etc. His team was professional, quick to rectify concerns were very helpful by scheduling video calls after each milestone to walk thru the work that was completed.

We had several problem areas like our attic that he was able to creatively find solutions for. Attached are some pictures of the finished product.

I would use him again.

Main floor renovations and wall removal

Alex and the boys did an okay job BUT the sales person really turned me off any future projects. They never came back to finish the job they had done. We are left to finish it ourselves.

This Review is not a accurate representation our our business. This is a direct attack on our company and values which has no truth to it. Carrerra Design & Renovation will give time to who ever this person is writing this review on. We will be filing a civil defamation suit if not taken down.

Great Contractor

We have been working with Alex and the Carrerra group in many projects. From basement finishing to complete reno. They know what they are doing and their clients have nothing but great things to say about them. They are organized and on time.

Always a pleasure to work with :)

Basement renovation

We had been waiting to finish our basement for years and this was a very big decision for our family. We saved up for 10 years to finally get the basement we wanted as our kids are now in their teenages. We initially had Mike over for the consultation and he was very impressive. He was able to make sure that our needs and wants were heard. In the first meeting he had drawn up 3-4 different designs on his software for us. We still got 4 other quotes and I must say after being very comfortable with Carrerra's presentation and their material offering we decided to go ahead with them. After the initial meeting their construction Manager Alex had visited the job site and explained to us in detail how he would frame the walls and bulkheads which is very important to us as we wanted to achieve maximum ceiling height. He explained how he would be using 1 5/8 studs instead of the regular 2 by 4 studs in order for us to feel more comfortable about our ceiling heights. The whole project lasted about 6 weeks even with covid delays as materials are short. We also had a selection meeting in detail and were able to choose different flooring and tiling options as well which is a major factor for us. To summarize I would say that this is definitely a great company to work with. These guys are professional, punctual and the whole team is very nice. Special thanks to Johnny, Festos, Alex, Josue, Moe, Mike, Adam and the rest of the team. I would highly recommend their basement renovation services and would use them again.
