Perfection is a tall order but Tony comes about as close as possible. He is a pleasant guy who clearly takes pride in his work and in my case went above and beyond with a few extras that were not part of the original quote. I waited to post my review until I had painted, because the last guy I hired left a multitude of errors under a thick layer of dust - I was relieved to find no nasty surprises this time. Thanks Tony!

Thank you Bruce for the great review. I'm very happy that you were satisfied with my work. As for the extras that I fixed outside my quote, it was my pleasure. I always try to do my best to make sure my client is happy.

If you don't have a huge area to cover, check out their remnant warehouse - I got a killer deal on a beautiful piece of stone. When it came time to install I was nervous as I've had bad experiences in the past, but I have to admit they did a beautiful job. 3 guys came in and executed with speed and precision - not so much as a scratch or nick to be found anywhere. Very impressed. Thanks Latitude!

Austin is a nice guy and he helps stray cats, so I can't be too harsh in my criticism. Having said that, I felt the attention to detail did not justify the price. One man, 4 hours, $600. If I'm going to pay someone $150 AN HOUR to caulk I want it to be damn near aesthetically perfect, and it wasn't. If you're like most people then you won't notice a problem. But if you're very discerning like me, you probably will. At the very least, shop it around - see my other reviews for a more affordable caulking option. Nice guy but I'm tired of tradespeople feeling they can charge through the roof for decent work - a day of labour should not cost $1000. Such is life as a homeowner in Toronto, I suppose. Thanks Austin for helping the cats.

Milorad is an artist and a gentleman. He takes the utmost pride in his work and does not rush through anything. The results are precise and beautiful and leave nothing to be desired. Hire with the utmost confidence.

Aqua Tech waterproofed my basement a couple years ago. Great job, fair price, no complaints. Unrelated, I recently wanted to run a short length of drainage pipe underground. No one I talked to wanted the job, so I called Andrew and asked if he could help. He remembered me, took the job, and his guys knocked it out in under an hour. Oh and the best part? FREE!!! He wouldn't take any money from me! Considering using a different company? Hire these guys and you'll sleep well, I promise. Thanks again Andrew!

Have a nice day…The Aquatech-Waterproofing Team.

I'm a perfectionist, and caulking brings out the worst in me. Like a patient therapist, Chris tolerated my OCD behavior and allowed me to inspect every bit of caulk as it was laid down. I cannot believe how patient and understanding he was. AND he did terrific work at a terrific price on a small job - no one else even returned my calls! Will definitely use again. Hire with 100% confidence!

Being a perfectionist, I typically find fault with any sort of work done at my home. However, I must admit that Milorad exceeded my expectations with a very tricky mosaic tile. He worked slowly and meticulously and the end result was spectacular. Professional in every sense of the word - hire with 100% confidence.

Dmitriy is a true pro. I called him to install the Ikea kitchen cabinets I assembled myself, and he gave me a reasonable price with no questions asked - no one else seemed to want the job at all. He had to make a bunch of custom modifications on the fly and the end result was terrific. Hire with confidence.

Upon a friend's recommendation, I hired Wilson to change my panel and rewire my whole house from aluminum to copper. A huge job. He has been an absolute pleasure to work with and has taken every change and additional request (of which I have made many) in stride with nary a complaint or extra charge. Super nice guy and a true professional - hire with 100% confidence.

Two winters have passed, and I am pleased to report my Canadian Choice windows and doors have performed even better than they look. Zero condensation and a pleasure to operate. The quality is fantastic. My only (huge) regret is letting the installer do the caulking - he did a terrible job. Hire a specialist to do the caulking and give your windows and doors the finishing touch they deserve.

Steve seems to specialize in stucco removal. Perhaps he is good at that. He's a very friendly guy and I made the mistake of hiring him to tape and plaster my newly drywalled basement. It took him a number of days and I saw no cause for concern. Upon "completion", I took a quick look and everything seemed OK - of course, all surfaces were covered in a thick layer of dust. After vacuuming, I came to the horrid realization that the space was RIFE with flaws. Unfinished, really, would be the correct word - not a smooth seam to be found. Entire areas missed. I texted him about the problems and he said he would return to take a look. Well guess what - no Steve and no response to my subsequent calls and texts. NOTHING. I've spent at least 20 hours repeatedly sanding and plastering, and I'm still dismayed. The walls are OK but the ceiling is atrocious - everyone looks at it and grimaces. EVERY corner where wall meets ceiling has cracked - rather than try to fix I have hidden it with crown molding. Steve took my money and ran - avoiding opportunists like him is the reason HomeStars exists. I realize he has a few positive reviews, but be careful not to dismiss my experience as an aberration - it happened to me and it can happen to you. Exercise extreme caution, and above all else, DO NOT PAY BEFORE A VERY THOROUGH FINAL INSPECTION! You've been warned...

The mistake I made with this job was giving a quote before the drywall was completed. If you got to the root of the problem you would find that maybe you shouldn't have cheaped out and actually hired someone qualified to frame and hang the drywall. I plaster walls, I dont straighten bananas. Not my proudest job but the fact you would give me a zero is a joke and then claim to work 20 hrs additional is absurd and frankly just not believable. Im a finisher and sometimes there is only so much I can do with crooked drywall. I stand by my work %100

Paul and his crew were in and out in one day - they did a great job on my roof and left no mess. Seemed to be very conscientious and did not try to upsell me on anything unnecessary. Hire with confidence.

Paul did a terrific job designing and building my front porch and stairs. After completion, he came back to address a couple tweaks I wanted - with no charge and no complaint. His crew was friendly and respectful. Hire with 100% confidence.

I had a similar job done at my previous house and there is no comparison between those guys and Aqua Tech in terms of professionalism, efficiency, and attention to detail. They definitely aim to please. Hire with confidence.

Chris did a terrific job with my doors and openers and happily (haha or so it seemed) tolerated my perfectionist tendencies. Even threw in some extras for free. Hire with 100% confidence.

I'm a perfectionist and can generally find fault with just about every completed task. Vitaly, however, fulfilled my every fussy request down to the finest detail and never once complained. And he was a pleasure to have around, to boot. One word? Integrity. Hire with 100% confidence.
