back this past summer of 2017 my townhome needed a new roof. when i spoke to my adjacent neighbor about selecting a roofing contractor, he recommended Bayview Roofing. we agreed and hired them to go ahead and do both our roofs for $2700. each. they performed the work and it looks great.

0/10

this is a breakdown of the disaster that was this project: 1. Contractor/owner of company has been paid to date a total of $23,000.00 by e-transfers + an additional $1,000 cash 2. the breakdown is as follows: - $18,000 for the reno work and materials - $5,000 for the kitchen (i have copies of invoice from kitchen sub-contractor and invoice from: Sika General Contracting, double, huge price difference, 100% mark-up) 3. the only real work done so far was: - remove old laminate flooring in basement - install dri-core subfloor (which was installed incorrectly, squared, not staggered. it was also glued down, but it's supposed to be a floating install) - install laminate flooring in new living/kitchen area - frame 2 small walls in the laundry area - drywall and mud said walls - plumbing: rough-in only, for kitchen and laundry, not completed. - electrical: installed sub-panel and wire runs for kitchen appliances, new light fixtures and most light fixtures half installed, still not completed. 4. the kitchen was installed "as-is" by the kitchen subcontractor: - installation could not be completed because the work required by GC to prepare for the kitchen install has not been completed. - the kitchen area walls are not square and counters are not flush to wall. - cannot install back-splash tiles, wall is not complete. - my mother bought and paid for all the appliances out of her own money directly with the supplier, Appliance Canada - my mother also bought and paid also for: - back-splash tiles - kitchen sink - kitchen tap 5. work still not completed: Electrical: - 240V outlet for kitchen stove not operational - incorrect light fixtures installed, we asked for warm white spotlights, we got cool white flat diffuser type. - some light fixtures are missing, not connected or operational - light switches are missing - some 120V outlets not operational. Plumbing: - kitchen sink is only rough-in, no connection to tap, still in sealed box on counter as shown in photos. - laundry room on tenant side not completed as per plans, no plumbing rough-in, no sink, no cabinet as requested and shown in plans. - laundry room on owner side has no sink rough-in, only drain, no cabinet as requested and shown in plans. original sink could have been re-used, i found it in the garbage in backyard. Flooring: - no vinyl plank flooring in laundry room as requested - no flooring material on site Paint and trim: - no trim work, baseboard, etc. around walls after flooring was installed. - no painting was done. - no paint and materials on site. my mother witnessed the contractor removing all purchased paint and supplies from site. Disposal: - there was a construction disposal bin for a few days on site. it has been removed. - there is still ample scrap and garbage on-site, in the backyard and side of the house. i have photos to prove it. the money paid of $18,000 (work and materials) plus the $5,000 (kitchen) plus $1000 cash, total of $24,000 more than fully cover the work done and materials so far and we still need to finish the job. there is more to be said about this but there's a pending court case so i cannot get into details.

This so-called contractor was hired to do a renovation in a walk-out basement in our Toronto home. Workmanship was shoddy, fraught with delays and mistakes. He was allowed to sleep in an adjacent room on-site to help speed up the completion and cut down on travel from his home in Colborne. We have terminates his contract before completion and now he claims he is a tenant and won't leave!.
