Doru Valer (Heptagon) was instrumental to the success of our full home renovation. I acted as my own project manager for this project, and Doru was easily the best member of my team to work with.
Once our house was completely gutted, Doru did all the framing, subfloor and structural reinforcement (2 floors plus basement). Once mechanicals (plumbing, electrical, HVAC), underpinning, spray foam insulation and drywall were put in, Doru returned to install baseboards, crown moldings, wainscoting and our kitchen cabinets. He also built us custom cabinetry, including a fireplace mantel and surrounding shelves, a banquette with storage, and a large entertainment centre. Doru also does drywall, but was not available to do our large job at the time we needed him to. I regret not being able to use him for the drywall, as the quality of the work from the other sub-contractor we used was not nearly as high as what I saw from Doru.
After we moved back into our house, Doru has not hesitated to return to help us with small jobs. I'm sure it takes him more time and gas than it's worth to return and help us with these minor things, but I think he does it as he is committed to providing the best service possible to his clients.
Doru was always on time for appointments (usually early) and worked hard to ensure he completed tasks on the agreed upon timelines. A typical day for Doru was from 8am to 4pm, and he took very few breaks. I was always amazed at his progress at the end of each day.
I would not hesitate hiring Doru again in the future. HIs attention to detail, good advice and excellent work ethic was a huge part of the success of our project.
