About 5 years ago, we hired ME Contracting to do our backyard. We were thrilled with the job they did, so when it came time to deal with the front of our house, (small East York property), we knew who to call. Daryl came by, listened to what we wanted in the design and in the selection of plants, and quickly came back with a sketch and estimate. We then worked together to refine the ideas and plan for a Spring start. The bulk of the job took two days, with an additional day for the four planters to be installed and planted. The team doing the work on site were efficient, thorough, kind, and very respectful of our property, as well as our neighbours, and the plants selected for us are so much better than we could have come up with ourselves. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again, and have had several neighbours go out of their way to compliment the work and ask who our contractor was. There is no hesitation in telling them it's M.E. Contracting.

We've been in our little 100 year old East York house for a few years now and have been chipping away at the big projects that we need to make it our own. After the HUGE success with our bathroom renovation, we knew just who to turn to for our kitchen. Again, Caio and his team really came together to make our kitchen renovation stress-free and smooth. Charlotte's advice and patience in the designing phase, (we knew what we wanted, and she worked really hard to make sure we got it!) and Caio's recommendations for materials and technical details got us the room we wanted and needed. As well, the trades people that came in were all respectful of our space and so easy to be around. We stayed right on schedule (except for a few pesky custom doors that were slightly delayed) and on budget and, in the end, had a beautiful, fully functioning kitchen. We have recommended The Home Improvement People to friends who have also had wonderful experiences, and we wouldn't hesitate to use them again!

Have an amazing 2017!

We are incredibly happy with the work done by The Home Improvement People and the level of customer service provided by Caio Freitas. The bathroom in our small, 100-year-old, East York home was in desperate need of a major renovation but, being the only bathroom in the house, we were concerned about the inconvenience that a big reno would cause. Having the work done while we were away on vacation was a solution, but meant finding a company that we could trust to take care of everything while we were away. Caio took care of it. He helped us brainstorm and plan, told us just what we needed to know, worked within our tight time frame and set us at ease. He is very knowledgeable, professional and a really nice guy. Very early on a (Saturday!) morning we handed Caio the key and his team began putting up protective plastic as we drove away to the airport... The following Saturday we arrived home, not knowing what state our home might be in. We could not have been more pleased and relieved. In one week, the bathroom had been completely reconfigured; plumbing, tiles, flooring, electrical, painting... all very well done. The house had been cleaned and mopped, even pictures hung back up on the wall. Shortly thereafter, custom glass was expertly installed around the shower. We love our new bathroom. We would not hesitate to recommend The Home Improvement People and will be contacting Caio for our future renovations. Joe and Jessica, East York

I contacted Keren and Eitan in January to discuss our backyard. Eitan came by in the dead of winter and we stood outside on all the snow and ice to talk about what we were hoping for. (Interlocking stone, gravel and removal of an old shed.) The job was scheduled for late May/early June. What a fabulous surprise when, at the end of April, Keren got in touch to say that they could fit us in the following week! They sent a team of guys who were able to navigate the very slim access to our yard, (old East York houses are really close together!), and who were able to get the job done in one day! They were friendly, very respectful of our property and the clean-up after, and obviously took pride in their work. My only complaint, I do wish they had supplied more gravel, because the edges of the stonework are a bit of a tripping hazard, but nothing we can't address ourselves. I would absolutely recommend ME Contracting to anyone for their landscape contracting needs. (In fact I did recommend them to a friend who needed a large retaining wall replaced, but ME is so popular, that they were completely booked! Get in early!)

Hi Jessica,
Thanks for your review.
Al you needed to do is give me a call and tell me about the gravel... I will send someone to put you more gravel when we are around.
Thanks again for choosing M.E Contracting.

We needed to replace the roof on our home and a friend referred us to Trish at Fixer on the Roof. She quickly arranged to have several contractors provide estimates for us to choose from, all in a timely and professional way. Thank you Trish!

Victor and his team did an amazing job replacing our roof. Victor is responsive, fair, and thorough. He talked us through every step, showing us pictures and videos as the job progressed, and went above and beyond given the state of parts of our roof. Also, he and his team were incredibly respectful of our home and our neighbours. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend Victor and A-Line Contractors.

Thx Jessica and Joe for your review.
That house was a bit of an issue... Hidden layer of cedar was an unexpected surprise... In total- 3 layers of shingles and one layer of cedar on mansard walls and no space between the neighbour eaves is kind of a rare coincidence nowdays)). However, in general the job went smooth and without any excessivness. The only concideration for you is to take care of the windows and aluminum arround them. As far as before under the aluminum trim you had 4 layers of material and now only one, the trim has to be reflashed and might as well old windows and frame changed. Later we can accomplish the other walls.
Thx again.
