We frequently use Homestars to find a reputable contractor but at rare times the highest rated isn't always the most feasible convenient one to choose. Recently we experienced some electrical problems in our house and, after first checking with HYDRO, set about trying to find a good electrician. However in checking with one of the top-rated choices we were advised that it would be weeks before they could see us. As I considered this to be a safety issue (which it turned out to be), I decided instead to contact OM Depot, whom we had used successfully in the past. We contacted Michael who fortunately was able to drop by a few hours later. Michael is a very honest knowledgeable electrician expert who quickly diagnosed the problem and performed only the tasks (no more - no less) required to effectively fix the problem. I highly recommend him.

Man, was I impressed! Contacted Markham Garage Doors at noon and had the problem resolved by 3:30 pm. Andrea (who took my request) and Rob (who dropped by to do the work) both took good care of me. It's no wonder that this company is highly rated in Homestars. The service was great and the cost was reasonable. Thanks guys and thanks Homestars.

As stated in past Homestars reviews on other recommended contractors that we’ve used on our home projects, there really are only 3 key components in completing any successful project: quality material, skilled experienced labour, and well-managed customer expectations delivered consistently. From our recent personal experience Victorious Carpet & Flooring delivered top marks. From the get-go, all of our kitchen flooring requirements and communications were handled in a friendly, prompt and efficient manner by Mark Aydin, starting within hours of initial contact. Mark and his installation technician crew (Ramsey and Zekai) delivered 100% to all expectations. My wife and I were very pleased with the final result. Conclusion: if you want an professional job, pay an honest reasonable price to get the job done right the first time, call Victorious. You won't regret it.

There really are only 3 key components in completing any successful project, such as installing a new shed: top quality material, skilled experienced labour, and well-managed customer expectations delivered consistently. From our recent personal experience The Shed Installer Guys delivered top marks on all 3. I’ll not repeat all the various glowing comments that many other satisfied customers have given in their top-rated reviews of this company except to strongly suggest that interested readers should carefully check all of them out, as well as those of other contractors, as we initially did here at Homestars and elsewhere. From the get-go, our shed install requirements and communications were handled in a friendly efficient manner by Matthew Davidson - starting within hours of initial contact (unlike others whom we reached out to but who took forever to reply). The project: to install a Costco Lifetime (11 x 11 ft) shed on a (12 x 12 ft) concrete pad in a timely cost effective and professional workmanship manner. Matthew and his crew delivered 100% to all expectations. The work consisted of a crew of 4 taking one work day to remove garden and lawn material on a 12 x 12 ft area, preparing the cement forms, machine compacting the soil, installing a gravel bed with rebar, taking ready mix cement truck delivery, and then installing the concrete base. Allowing for 2 days of cement curing, Matthew and Will then later returned to spend a second work day installing the shed and taking away the garden and lawn material along with the shed packing material. All work was done in a professional and friendly manner. Matthew told me that this was one of his larger shed installs and it certainly wasn't a job for any amateur (such as myself). Conclusion: if you want an honest professional job, pay an honest reasonable price to get the job done right the first time using quality materials and experienced services that come with warranties. Call the Shed Installer Guys. You won't regret it.

This is my favourite review, thank you Claud for taking the time to represent your experience with us in such a wonderful way. I don't think anyone will top that for a while.

There really are only 3 key components in completing any successful project, such as recovering a roof: top quality material, skilled experienced labour, and well-managed customer expectations delivered consistently. From our recent personal experience New Steel Roofers delivered top marks on all 3. I’ll not repeat all the various glowing comments that many other satisfied customers have given in their top-rated reviews of this company except to strongly suggest that interested readers should carefully check all of them out, as well as those of other roofing contractors, as we initially did here at Homestars and elsewhere. From the get-go, our roof install requirements and communications were handled in a friendly efficient manner by Jill in the office. In turn, Max Guerra provided excellent project management in ensuring that the roofing material was delivered in a timely manner, that only highly qualified installers were selected for the job, and that the work was progressing well and completed successfully. We own a detached split level house with a Mansard roof. This is a difficult roof to cover as it sits not just on top of the house but also continues halfway down all of the sides of the house. Several years ago we had a bad experience when another roofing company attempted to re-shingle our house. The original crew did such a bad job that, after considerable pressure, the roofing company was forced to completely remove their top quality shingles and, with a better qualified crew, completely redo the job from scratch and absorb the cost! We were determined not to have history repeat itself and New Steel Roofers didn’t let us down. Tony and his crew went the extra mile to install our new stone coated steel roof in an expert European attention-to-detail manner. Despite occasional rain delays, in 5 working days the guys removed our old shingles, checked for any water leakage (fortunately none was found), installed waterproof roofing underlay on day #1 (so that no roof leaks occurred during the heavy rainy days that interspersed the work), and then did a great job in installing our new roof. Daily cleanup ensured that our house surroundings were always well maintained. These guys did an excellent job, meeting all our requirements and expectations. The price, while not low as a simple re-shingle roofing job would have cost, was fair considering the results delivered and the challenge and effort required in expertly doing so. The bottom line: be prepared to spend a fair price for quality. Anything less in the long run is a waste of money, in my opinion.

Does this sound familiar? You try contacting a tradesman to complete a small household project and they don't even have the courtesy to return your calls. Not the professional folks at DrainWorks! We wanted to replace our old cement laundry tub, along with a few old leaky taps around the house. One call to DrainWorks was all it took to get a professional repair job done, at the date and time promised, and at a fair and reasonable price. Steve from DreamWorks did a great job, answered all our questions, made suggestions, the list goes on. Thanks guys!
