My wife and I recently completed a major extension and renovation of our 60 year old house and couldn’t have been happier with the support and guidance we received from Reiner. From his extensive industry relationships Reiner was able to get us access to the absolute best professional services we required – general contractor, architect, designer, surveyor, cabinet makers etc. all to meet our exact needs and targeted cost. His guidance throughout the contracting process was invaluable – reviewing requirements, completing the contracts, skillfully resolving any issues throughout the engagement. He had countless excellent construction and design ideas as we moved through the work, discussing with us and working with the contractor to make adjustments in real-time – many resulted in substantial improvements to what turned out to be a beautiful reno. He and his team were also the most reliable and trustworthy service providers we dealt with – always organized, connected to the project at all times, on time for all meetings, quick to respond to requests and with a very focused, professional, calm personality. His skill and knowledge on construction matters – legislation, zoning and by-laws – are probably best summed up by way of example. Our property backs on to a ravine and was subject to restrictive by-laws imposed by two separate municipal governing bodies including the Ravine & Natural Feature Protection (RNFP). Recent changes to by-laws, which Reiner had knowledge of, were going to compromise our ability to extend our house which was critical to the overall reno. After five months and numerous calls and emails between myself and the RNFP with no movement, I asked Reiner to get involved and within two days he had an in person meeting with a senior individual at the RNFP and by noon that day had an agreement in writing to the proposed variances to their by-laws which literally SAVED THE PROJECT. Without Reiner efficiently resolving this matter we simply could not have moved forward with the construction. In retrospect, Reiner was single biggest factor in both the successful outcome of our renovation and the low level of stress throughout the process. I would not do a major construction project without him. My wife and I felt so comfortable with Reiner and at all times could completely trust him to look out for our best interests above all else. I cannot recommend Reiner and The Reno Coach more highly. Thank you Reiner for helping us build an amazing home that was so far beyond our expectations and perfect in every detail - in large part thanks to you.

We went with Ontario Villa Construction for a major renovation involving a full three story extension and completely gutting the existing house. After 20+ years of working with countless contractors, Angel and Ontario Villa Construction are simply the best; most trustworthy contractor we have ever worked with. Angel and team transformed our 70 year old semi into a beautiful modern open-concept home. The job was finished on time in only 7 months and to the absolute highest possible standard of quality. Throughout the process Angel made countless suggestions to overcome challenges of building onto an older home and to improve upon the design, many of which came at substantial cost to him but never once looked to increase the price or add time to the build. Angel’s sole focus was to deliver the best possible home for my family and I. My wife and I also made numerous changes throughout the build and once again Angel was so flexible, accommodating every change we requested. The office staff, Monica and Nadia, were also extremely friendly, responsive and an absolute pleasure to deal with every step of the way. The office stayed on top of the work and were very connected with us throughout the entire process. I cannot recommend Angel and Ontario Villa Construction more highly. Thank you Angel for building us an amazing home that was so far beyond our expectations and perfect in every detail.

contracted Kelly's to do an arborist report for a construction project. Arborist (Tara) did an excellent job, excellent communications, good turn-around time, comprehensive report at a reasonable price. Also provided a lot of very helpful advice for a number of city compliance matters we needed to resolve. It was a pleasure to work with this company - i cannot endorse them strongly enough.
