After a 1 year nightmare w/ another "basement systems" contractor that failed to fix water penentraing the sill plate around 50% of my house, I finally contracted Crawford & Sons. The experience was night and day. Immediately after the work was complete, not a single drop of water has entered my basement for over 3 years now. The work done was prompt, thorough, and best of all actually works!!!!!! Don't make my mistake and go thru a painful mistake w/ another company that doesn't know what their doing. Go w/ Crawford & Sons and you will be very happy!

I have used Compass Home Services for all of my HVAC needs. This company is a breath of fresh air in comparison to the competition. I am the type to call multiple contractors, research and compare notes in order to make the most informed decision possible about my purchases. Compass wins hands down every time. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and skilled. I am very pleased w/ the quality of work done by their installers and am happy w/ the value for the price. You can certainly go for the lowest bid w/ the competition but you will pay dearly in the end. Save yourself time and aggravation, you can't go wrong w/ Compass!

I hired Terzo to maintain my rental property lawn in the 2013 season. The package was suppose to be inclusive of weed control. Before hiring Terzo, the lawn was virtually weed free. During the course of the season, I noticed more and more weeds popping up and repeatedly asked if the proper chemicals were being applied to which I was told yes. The grass was cut religiously once per week as promised. In April 2014 I tried reaching Corrado multiple times to ensure my property was on his list for spring clean up etc. I called, emailed and tried his online chat feature all to no avail for over 3 weeks - I thought he went out of business. He finally called me back and advised he is changing his business and no longer serving the Pickering area. 2 weeks later I see him and his crew at the school around the corner from my house. I tried to approach him and he walked away as though he couldn't' be bothered to speak to me. Now i'm left w/ a weed ridden lawn and searching for a new company to help recover it. Not a happy customer! :(

My backyard had severe drainage issues that needed to be addressed. Given the cost to correct the problem, I expected nothing but the best work having selected Lloyd's Landscaping after interviewing multiple landscapers. In the beginning, all was good - proper scope of work provided, reviewed plan together and seemed like a good fit. After the work started however, suddenly things changed. The workers were less than professional - young kids, smoking on the job, throwing their lunch waste, coffee cups etc. in the drainage pit, going shirtless. I didn't expect this given the professional image Paul Lloyd portrayed initially. Paul showed up to the job site very infrequently. After the mulch was laid we found numerous foreign objects including a bent up spoon, razor blade, rubber among other garbage - we told the workers and they said it couldn't have been in the batch. The interlock patio is where it really fell apart. The first time it was laid, I sprayed water on it to see if it was sloped correctly (away from the house) - of course, my worse fear was realized - it was sloping toward the house. I called the company and they sent another set of workers to correct the problem several days later. These workers again failed to correct the problem - I sprayed water on it and it pooled in the center of the patio. I called Paul Lloyd again to advise of the problem - several calls later he came out and advised it was due to settling from foundation work I did the year before. He said he would have it fixed one more time only but after that I would be on my own. Really? So much for the 1 year warranty. This is absolutely ludicrous since it was a matter of days since the patio was laid, not months or years. They then sent out another set of workers who sloped it correctly, still w/ several improper cuts on the curved section of the patio. I thought that nightmare was over, only to move to another house where the former homeowner hired Lloyd's Landscaping to do the same type of work. Again, we discovered the patio is sloped toward the house and water is pouring into the basement after the winter snow thaw. We call Lloyd's for over 1 month to try to explain the situation to no avail, the secretary eventually became annoyed and tells us to go find another landscaper to fix the problem since we're not happy. Needless to say, I would not hire this company to fix my kids sandbox. I have since called multiple landscapers and shown them Lloyd's work all of which say it's a notorious problem with them that they end up having to fix - STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!!!
