John and his son upgraded the 40 year old 1/2" copper pipes to 3/4" in my basement and replaced the laundry faucets and hot water heater shutoff valve. John is a master plumber and his work shows it.

Tricolour provided the best quote for the work and were able to start the soonest. There crew was prompt and hard working. They happily accommodated several changes after the work began. The whole job including digging out the old floor, roughing in a new bathroom, installing the crushed stone and pouring a 4" slab was done in five days. My house is old and they know how to work on old houses.

My neighbor and live on narrow lots in an old part of the city and share a mutual drive. Our 1930's small frame garages were falling apart and when we managed to get city permits to rebuild, I asked Paul if he would do the framing. Luckily for us he had a window of time. He gave us separate quotes for labour and material. Other quotes we received were higher, and used inferior materials. During construction I asked if the garage could be built with a vaulted ceiling. He got the go ahead from the building inspector and built it with no impact to the schedule or cost. He brought a big crew and both garages were framed and sheeted in less than three days. It would have taken me that long to order the material. We are very satisfied with Paul's skills, and professionalism.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. It's nice to hear that you are happy with the service we provided. I always try to work within everyone's budget and if the work changes along the way and does not take any extra time there is no need to add any extra to the cost. If you need anything else in the future please do not hesitate to contact me. Paul

Mandarin Heating and Cooling removed the old ductwork that ran down the middle of my basement, and installed new ductwork along an exterior wall where it is now unobtrusive. The work was actually quite complex, requiring a lot of custom ductwork. Brian visited my basement while it was being demolished and went out of his was to ensure my goal of removing head obstructions from the main sightlines in the basement was achieved. He and his crew arrived promptly, worked diligently in an extremely dirty environment and had the work completed in about nine hours. The end result far exceeded my expectations.

Because of a last minute change in direction, I needed the plaster and lath removed from the dining room walls and the wall adjoining the living room removed. It was Friday evening early July when I called Frank. He and Colin? showed up first thing Saturday morning and the work was completed by noon. They were professional, careful to minimize dust and helped me out on extremely short notice. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.

For years I had been planning to rip out and level the sagging plaster ceiling in the living room and dining room in our 1930's semi. Finally this spring the better half gave the OK to proceed. I knew for years that I would try to hire Rob because of the reviews and prices I had read on homestars. I asked for a quote to drywall and tape/mud the two ceilings and the wall separating the living room and dining room. Rob took measurements and got back to me a very reasonable estimate. He expected the drywall and taping to be completed over about a week. We agreed on a start date early in July. I had to delay the drywalling at least four times because of my delays in demolition, framing and electrical. I also changed the scope of work. I ended up removing the wall separating the living room and dining room and ripped out the plaster on the remaining three dining room walls. After each of the delays I introduced, I emailed Rob and he replied to me within 24 hours. When the preparation was finally ready, Rob promptly sent in drywallers and completed the taping himself over a one week period. My wife and I are very appreciative of the quality of Rob's work, but are even more appreciative of how accommodating he was.

We needed loose slip covers for a new sofa and chair because the cat was scratching them during the night. We wanted to easily remove the covers during the day. As her website www.cheapandcheerfulslipcovers.com stated, Helen visited our home and provided what we felt was a reasonable estimate. It was October 12th and Helen estimated she could make the covers the first week of November. We accepted her quote and paid 50% which approximately covered the material cost. On November 5th I contacted Helen and we made an appointment for the morning of November 9th for her to come and measure the furniture. That was the last I have heard from her. I have phone and left numerous messages and have sent numerous emails. It seems that she refuses to reply.
