We hired Rovimat (Rolando and Vitor) when my wife and I bought our first house. We knew we were going to be doing major renovations when we bought it, but the first stage was finding the right contractor, which was a challenge since we knew we were going to be doing some structural work and we didn't have a lot of confidence in the initial contractors we had met with and have heard horror stories about other projects friends have done.
When we met Rolando, we knew immediately Rovimat was the right team for us. The quote provided significantly more detail and removed the majority of the cost surprises that we've heard have come up with friends when renovating.
We essentially renovated the entire main floor of our house, as they removed two structural walls and completely opened up the family room, breakfast area and kitchen. We also had new wood flooring installed and finished on site throughout our entire main floor, beautiful tile work in our entry and laundry/mud room, new powder room, new laundry room and new ceilings with pot lights and new electrical switches, outlets and dimmers installed. We had extra plumbing work done for our two dish washers, over the stove pot filler and ice maker in our fridge. As well, they installed a gas fireplace, with a beautiful custom recessed area over top to mount our flat screen and hide all of the wiring for a clean finished look.
When we did find some surprises behind the walls Rolando and Vitor were great providing economical solutions to the problem. For example; we found some surprise HVAC pipes in one two of the walls we wanted to remove completely, for a minimal cost they re-routed the pipes so we could have the clean open concept look we wanted to achieve.
They were at our house every day, which made it really easy to understand what was going on for that day or week and how the project was progressing. It was a 7 week project and they actually finished a couple of days early! We wish we could give them an 11, we still have our basement and second floor that we'll be renovating and as soon as we can, we will definitely be calling Rolando and Vitor for those projects.
We truly couldn't be happier with our house and the work that Rovimat did for us. Our friends and family love the work they've done and generally the feedback we get is that our 30 year old house looks brand new. In fact my parents hired Rovimat after seeing their work to renovate their master bathroom and had the same great experience we did! We have already recommended Rovimat to a neighbor and work college with complete confidence.
Rovimat (Rolando, Vitor and team) were excellent value, stayed on budget, time and were super friendly and great listeners, I'm super picky and their patience was greatly appreciated! They really made our vision come to life, we really couldn't have asked for more in a contracting team! You hear about how stressful reno’s can be, honestly Rolando and Vitor actually made the processes enjoyable and exciting, we are so thankful we found them!
