We had Eurodale complete a full Excavation/addition/renovation to our home in the midtown/davisville area that started spring 2015-2016. No project comes without stress, but we can't say enough about this team. They give contractors an amazing name in an industry full of firms that scare many away from renovations and construction. In full disclosure, as happens when trying to keep parts of a 90 year old home some unforeseen things came up. Additional expenses arose. Many of which Brendan did warn us in advance of. Some just bad luck for us (additional concealed asbestos, undermined floor joists etc. Eurodale worked with us and communicated through every stage. No homeowner ever wants to hear about extras but it is a realistic part of the process in Toronto (unfortunately). Every time Brendan and Jim were put up against it with the opportunity to show both their, and their companies character they showed what this firm is all about. Stand up, honest business owners who give you an A++ product.
Brendan will tell you right off the bat... You get what you pay for. We sure did. When I think about what might have been, if I took cheaper estimates we had been presented with.. I actually shudder. We ended up experiencing an absolute neighbour from hell situation (refusing access to his property midway through the project too finish siding, which required right of entry permitted access, calling in an encroachment complaint known to be false, sending threatening legal letters to my pregnant wife... The list really goes on and on. Many man hours were spent on Eurodales part for which I never saw a bill). Any other contractor in their right mind would have walked off the job in the first month but the team at Eurodale handled everything with the utmost class.
In addition to the amazing ownership team the icing on the cake has to be our lead carpenter Blair. It wasn't until well into the framing that I came to really understand the LEAD CARPENTER SYSTEM. Basically he is on your site EVERDAY.... how many people go through a one year Reno and say someone was onsite every single day? He is not just responsible for framing and other carpentry work but management of all other trades ensuring the utmost quality. I remember Brendan telling me early on Blair would be the guy he would have build his house. I understand why!! His attention to detail and passion for what he does shows through every part of my home and even though our constant changes must have driven him mad we love the house he built for us. When I think of the money he saved us by pointing out or recommending changes before it was too late and would have been extra cost my head spins. People ask us what would you change or do different and I think it's a large part thanks to Blair there really isn't much.
This team gave my wife and I, and our newborn son our absolute dream home. Every homeowner needs to go into reno's with eyes wide open. It's stressful, prepare for and expect the unexpected, but when you have people who stand behind there product no matter what, that's what your hiring in Eurodale.
