Rear 2 story brick addition plus finished basement and new detached garage: After extensive research of numerous general contractors in the GTA, my husband and I found Steve Babcook from Kingsway General Contracting Services and I am so happy we did! Good friends of ours had used Kingsway during construction of their own two story rear addition and had nothing but good feedback from their own job. We did a rear two story brick addition to our 100 year old home with two rear porches, a deck and a detached two car garage. We are so pleased with the quality of work done. We know our home is solidly built thanks to Steve and his crew. We used a wide range of building materials and custom finishes on the job, including full brick combined with Hardie cement board siding, heated natural stone floors, ICF concrete foundation, extensively customized wiring with full ethernet network capability, Azek porch flooring and railing, hardwood floors and stairs, custom built wood mantels and trim for inset gas fireplaces, custom built cubbies and closets for kids in the mudroom, and the list goes on... Throughout the process Steve was hardworking, diligent, always made sure the job was done right and that we were happy with the results! Any time we wanted to add additional work to the project that wasn't covered by the original contract, Steve was very fair and honest and we never felt like we were taking advantage of or overcharged for extras that were done. Steve went the extra mile to use green building materials at our request and let us pick and choose the exact finishing details and trim profiles we wanted. Steve has a very friendly and courteous work crew who cleaned up each night, so impressive! This was very important to us as we lived in the original part of the house throughout the entire build process and his crew had numerous interactions with us and our children throughout the day. The most important thing at the end of a large project like this is whether you would hire the same person again - we definitely will and plan to do our front porch and laundry room with them in the near future.. and have recommended Kingsway to our closest friends for their own renovation.

Found the matching Mirage flooring for our new addition which was exactly the same colour to our existing living room we installed 12 years ago. Result is beautiful! Low pressure sales, great service, quick delivery. Very satisfied. Mirage installs so easily (way better than the cheap hardwood flooring I bought elsewhere!)

I installed new glass shower (large glass panel, shower door and movable transom) and beautiful glass railing. The measurements taken were exact and installers were terrific! Beautiful result! Highly recommend!

I ordered the hard to get super quiet Panasonic bathroom fan from Dupont Plumbing Supplies - they were quick and efficient when I needed it in a hurry! I also have been there to get plumbing supplies for my steam shower unit and they were extremely patient and helpful to find a solution for my plumbing challenge!

The roofing job was well done, they used top quality materials and made a great recommendation to use Landmark shingles with a great warranty. Disappointed with the lack of clean up after the job was completed. Roofing garbage was left all over my neighbor's yard which my husband had to clean up the next day.

Cathy helped us find a beautiful granite to compliment our existing kitchen counter for our new breakfast bar. We had a tricky template and they cut it exactly as requested and had it ready right on time! Highly recommended! Cathy is terrific!

We were thrilled to find Under the Sun Landscaping for a fairly large project in our backyard. We had Sal and his crew regrade our entire backyard. This required using 4x4 cedar posts buried to reinforce the earth. Sal was efficient, ecologically minded which was important to us and did a great job. He was a wonderful person to have on site, my two children loved having him here! 10/10!! I would highly recommend Under the Sun Ecological Landscaping for any project!! We look forward to having them come back to do our newest project this spring! The Joos Family, Toronto

Shone,
Thank you for this awesome review you submitted! It was a great project, I love it when it's all for the kids! Great motivation. Also they were great little supervisors to have around, making sure their master plan was being executed to perfection. haha. I hope the house reno is going well.. Whenever the snow melts we'll get together to look at the new landscaping project. Take care,
Sal.
