10/10

2nd time using Colin and The Pine Nuts. Had an unexpected main floor water leak that required a full floor replacement. After talking with Colin and our previous discussions, we ended up doing a full main floor reno - entire floor replacement, removed an office, and replaced countertops in the kitchen. As with before, work was great and completed on time and on budget. My biggest issue with contractors is getting "surprises" at the end - this didn't happen. We're already looking at phase 3 and we'll be calling Pine Nuts to get the work done.

Company Response

Thank you Mark. Even though this portion of your renovations happens a lot sooner than expected we are glad that you are, once again happy with the results and process. Looking forward to the next stage!

We had asked several reno companies in to quote on completing our basement/bathroom project and Colin's price was very competitive. Not the lowest but not the highest either. Once we had a sit down to discuss scope, cost controls, and what we were looking for, Colin came up with a detailed construction plan and laid out a structured invoicing template with firm construction benchmarks that would be completed prior to each instalment being paid. The project stayed exactly on budget. The only time it went over was when we elected to add in some new things or make changes. There were no "surprises" at all which we really appreciated. At any point where we were contemplating changes, Colin would always give us options and not do anything until we expressly knew what the changes would cost and approved them. We had had a bad experience in the past with a contractor showing up with inflated bills so we were a bit gun shy. Not this time. It really couldn't have worked out any better. As for the quality, things were really well done - especially the cabinets and woodworking. High quality, solid construction, and it will last a lifetime. We also had a fairly intricate shower/steam bathroom build in with floor to ceiling tile which really turned out well. The construction timeline slipped a little bit due to our own delay in picking a few items, and there were a few days where we didn't see anyone on the job but it was well within the times we were expecting. Overall, I would definitely recommend "The Pine Nuts" to anyone looking to do some work in/around your house. Colin and his team are very laid back, easy to work with, and we will be going back to them for our next phase down the road.
