we used this company upon our realtor's recommendation. they gave us an all-clear so we bought the house. a year later, only during renovations, we discovered that there were issues that they failed to catch at home inspection, the repairs of which would cost about $5000. I wasn't amused or impressed!
The work includes putting down a strip of paving stones at the front of the house & repairing the front door steps. The steps were decently done, but the interlock work wasn't. After one winter, the stones are coming loose, and it shouldn't be the case.
i had to travel overseas during the winter snowstorm and found them on kijiji. Wasn't sure if they'd turn up but they did, and did a good job too. will use them again.
Thank you Mel for having reviewed our company. It is because of your review that we are now on HomeStars.com.
We went to tile shoppe and got a marble jam for the bathroom. I ask the staff for a recommended size and he told me it is a standard size, and there are only two colors. When i gave it to my contractor, he said it was the wrong width - tile shoppe sold me a 4.5" when the standard should be a 6". I called them for an exchange but was told it's final sale and we just need to buy again. I think the store has a really high-handed way of handling customers. I can understand if they want a re-stocking fee, but this is absurd.
we hired the boys to move from toronto out to the suburbs and they were good - on time, worked fast, careful. I will be using them again soon ..
Hi Mel, it was a pleasure helping you out last year and we look forward to making your next move a successful one as well!
I had two cracks to the foundation in the basement that had to be repaired and I called for a quote. The company was comfortable enough to quote me without even coming by - and they honored their quote, too. They had a packed schedule and wasn't able to accommodate my preferred date, but their man came as appointed, on time, and finished the job within 3 hours.
Thank you Mel for your business and support of Dryshield. We apologize we did not have an opening sooner, however we are very happy to hear that you were satisfied with our services and honesty.
I engaged Derek to come get rid of the hedges that were growing wildly in my front yard, as well as a small tree in the backyard. His rate was reasonable and he came by promptly when he said he would - something I appreciate, after dealing with contractors who don't even bother showing up, let alone on time! Derek does a decent job.
Thanks for the review Mel and keep us in mind in the future. Derek
Ikea products are notoriously difficult to assemble so I didn't hesitate to look around for help when I needed new kitchen cabinets assembled. I found Lee on this website and engaged his services. He just finished my project, worked diligently, with a great sense of humor, and did it in just two days. Well done, hard worker, very pleasant experience!
Mel and Hazel, it was great working with you. Your positive attitude was very much appreciated.
