We have used Renato multiple times for our HVAC needs. He is the first person I call because he has a very quick response time. Almost always he is able to address the problem on the same day that I call. Renato came and quickly was able to assess the issue and fix it. He also explains in detail what the options are and what he is going to do. He also gives helpful advice on caring for your HVAC to prevent the issue from happening again. Thank you Renato!

The shut off on our shower faucet broke late at night. We had to turn off the main water supply. In the morning I telephoned Valentin hoping he could address the problem ASAP as I am at home with 2 children and its not ideal having no water. He immediately responded to my text and was at our house late morning. He also took the time to explain how to replace the shower cartridge on my own in case it ever happened again. I appreciated him taking the time to do that. Thank you Valentin. You are always our go to plumber!

We have used Pete in the past. He promptly addressed and trouble shot our problem over email on the weekend and came to make the repair early Monday. The repair is located at our rental property so it was great that it was dealt with quickly and without any stress. Thank you Pete!

Marcos has helped us with various plumbing projects, including 3 bathrooms, new plumbing for our laundry sink and hook up to the washing machine, and most recently a leaky outdoor faucet. He quickly will respond if called and tries to address the issue promptly. He can easily assess the problem and problem solve a solution. We have had no problems with any of the work we have had done. Thank you Marcos!

We have used FC Locksmith a few times now. They have always been able to respond quickly and get the job done promptly. The technician is very knowledgeable about locks and helped explain which lock was best for our needs. The locks that have been installed are high quality and we have had no problems with any of them.

Debora and her crew were very accommodating to my last minute need for a cleaner. They did a very thorough clean, including the inside of all appliances. I will definitely be calling them for any future cleaning needs. Thank you!

I have been trying to find a good electrician for a few years now. I have found some on Homestars which have good ratings but are terrible at communication and the work doesn't get done. Mark was great with communication and committing to getting the work done. He is very knowledgeable and will explain what options there are for a given job. We will definitely be using him for any future jobs we have. Thanks Mark

I'm so glad that we have found Neethan. He responded quickly to my initial call and committed to dates. I liked that he was on site with his crew to do the work and could explain what needed doing and why. Thank you Neethan, we will definitely be using you yearly for our eaves!

When we moved into our new house we were informed that there was asbestos on the ceiling pipes in the basement. I contacted a few companies from Home Stars, but went with Canada's Restoration Services because they were very detailed when explaining their processes to me and they had a competitive price. The work took about half a day. We were very pleased with the final product. All of the pipes were stripped clean of asbestos and the floors were left clean. Thank you, it's nice to know that is out of our house!

From initial contact, Insta-insulation gave great customer service. They were good at explaining the different options and what the process would involve. When we had addition questions, they were easy to reach. While working, they were very respectful of our space and protected the floor surfaces. Thank you!

Hello Anne! Thank you for recognizing that we all strive to take great pride in the process so that your experience with us is a positive one from start to finish. Of course insulation work is something that we do every day but we know that it's not always the customer's area of expertise and that they are relying on us to steer them right! It's so important to us to present you with your options, answer your questions, and give you all the information that we can so that you can make your decision with confidence! Thank you for your excellent review, Anne, and for putting your trust in our team. You've made a great decision to protect your home with proper insulation. Sincerely, Crystal - Customer Care

Sometimes when I have gotten people to do work on homestars that have great reviews, they are almost too busy with work to give good service. Renato had great communication and really focuses on each job. He is very knowledgable and explains as he works about what he is doing and why. He repaired a few things which were not done properly when our furnace was initially installed by someone else. He will be the person I will contact in the future.

The reason I initially went with Warren is that he contacted me by phone and not a string of emails. He is very personable and all communication is done directly. He is very easy to reach and keeps you up to date with how the project is coming along. As well, I found his rates to be great! It allowed us to purchase top of the line paint. We are really happy with the job that was done! Thanks Warren and Paul

Peter immediately called me after I emailed him through Homestars. He quickly diagnosed the problem and was able to obtain the parts needed to repair my stove. He was very flexible and able to work around my work schedule to come at a convenient time. He was prompt and was able to repair the stove quickly. Would definitely use Pambis again. Thank you!

I don't know what more to say other than we have found our plumber for life! Valentin responded to my homestars message by phone minutes after I contacted him. He was easy to book a time with and when he arrived, he was prompt. He is very knowledgable and quickly told me my options and what to expect with each. He isolated the problem and had it fixed in less than half an hour. He then had time to install the vent, which we had not previously discussed. He was very accommodating and efficient! Thank you Valentin!

We have used Glen before and are always pleased with the work he does. He always is able to not only diagnose a problem, but also find cost effective options to deal with it. He is very knowledgable on a variety of areas and is able to easily deal with any problem thrown at him. thanks Glen!

It was so easy dealing with Tip Top Trough. Pierce was easy to contact through phone or email, and quickly had someone out to do an estimate. The work was completed as scheduled, and best of all they stuck to their estimated quote. Eaves troughs look and work great! Thank you Pierce.

A&A Masonry did a great job with the tuck pointing of our house, but mainly I was so impressed with the brickwork they did over a basement window. It looks amazing, and they matched the brick so well that you can barley tell work was done. As well, they stuck to their quoted price. Thank you!

Glen was easy to contact and although busy, was easy to arrange a time for him to do the work. He showed up on time and did a great job. He also advised me what options I had or if certain things needed doing for some of the jobs. thanks Glen!

After having a hard time getting a handyman to follow through on their quote and actually start work, Charlie was a life saver. Immediately after giving us a quote he set up a schedule to begin work. (And he stuck to the schedule). Charlie was easy to reach and prompt to return our calls. All of the work done was meticulous, especially with the plumbing, and the job site was always left clean. Thanks Charlie! Looking forward to working with you again! Anne
