Bill, owner of Fairney and Sons, is my hero.  We had an alleged water problem (home inspection) in the basement of a rental townhouse we owned and had up for sale. The condominium board attempted to blame the home owner stating that the window drains were plugged and water would find its way into the basement.  The condominium contractor also suggested that the basement wall, wood framing and insulation would be covered in mould and would require special procedures for its removal which would he would do but then failed to follow through even after we agreed to his quote. Hence we called in Bill for another opinion and he appeared with his interior associate Peter to assess the situation. Bill and Peter doubted that the window drains were the cause of the moisture and suggested that the condo board was merely attempting to shift blame so they wouldn't have to deal with the problem. It was decided to open a section of the basement wall to see what was going on.  The wall was opened and to our surprise it was bone dry, no mould, no rotten framing. and no cracked wall.  Clearly the window drains were not the problem and so by opening the wall we were able to disprove the condo board's theory and the whole issue returned back to them.  Bill and Peter identified a number of problem areas that the board should address to prevent any future problems some of which they have already undertaken to complete. The basement wall was meticulously restored and the alleged moisture problem was dealt  with and any future issue is now the problem of the condominium board. Bill is a no nonsense contractor, he tells it like it is and really knows his stuff.  He said he'd get  me out of this mess which he did and the sale of our property went ahead problem free. This is a contractor I trust and who is price competitive and hence it goes without saying he is someone I would highly recommend. Peter and his wife, Trudy, did an excellent job of returning the basement wall back to a better than original condition. One final note, Bill reminds me of another well known contractor, Mike Holmes, and I believe they would probably share the same motto, "Do it Right".   Thanks to everyone for a job well done!  Dieter and Debbie M.

Awesome, that’s how we feel today after the oak floor was laid by Eugene and his assistant from Markham Flooring. I tend to be a perfectionist and often am reluctant to hire people believing that only I can do the best job. Sebastian’s friendly and knowledgeable personality won me over! He convinced me that his installers could meet my expectations. When Eugene and his assistant appeared at my home they were very friendly and as a customer I became very relieved that my home would be treated like their own. Detail and perfection was a mandate that Eugene constantly pursued and he was never reluctant to make his workmanship 100%. Indeed he welcomed my presence and input on the job site. He encouraged another set of eyes to assist him in ensuring the highest quality of workmanship and customer satisfaction. I was thoroughly impressed with their attention to detail around all of the kitchen cabinetry. Their workmanship far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend the Markham Flooring Team for those individuals seeking outstanding workmanship. The hardwood floor in our kitchen looks magnificent. For anyone wishing quality product and workmanship, Markham Flooring is the one to deal with. It was a absolute pleasure doing business with Sebastian and the Markham Flooring team!
