After having many companies come out to quote the removal of a birch tree and stump, we had A-Star come and do the job. Their price was the best and their work was excellent. Adrian and his team were great!

When we found out we were expecting, a good quality crib that was made in Canada was on our shopping list. At the recommendation of a friend, we went to Baby World to check out their selection. We were blown away at the selection of Canadian made furniture. We ended up choosing a crib, dresser and change table from them. Everything from the shopping, purchase and delivery went off without a hitch! Our pieces arrived ahead of schedule which was wonderful. Highly recommend.

We purchased a living room set from Stoney Creek Furniture. The sales associate was very patient with us and helped us select the perfect set for our family and home. Best of all, they stored the furniture for us for free while we were waiting to move into our new home. They promptly delivered the furniture on our closing/move in date which was very convenient.

We purchased four side tables and two coffee tables from Destination Leather. The quality and pricing of the products can't be beat. The only downside is having to purchase from a catalogue. However, we saw the same pieces at a chain furniture store, so we were able to see them in person there, but purchase via catalogue from Destination Furniture. By doing so, we saved a considerable amount of money. We were responsible for pick-up, which saved us even further. Destination Leather also has a great selection of patio furniture during the spring and summer months. Don't let the location deter you. Go ahead and check it out.

When we moved into our home, we had many bare walls that required art work. Custom art work is expensive so I was looking for cost effective ways to save some money, but to turn some of my photography into art work. I thought I'd give PosterJack a try after a recommendation by a friend. I thought I would start with ordering a small canvas of one of my photographs. I ordered online and it arrived on my doorstep very quickly. The quality was great and the price was very reasonable. I plan on printing more photography from them to help complete my gallery wall projects in my home.

We rented a Budget Bin for a recent demolition job at our house. The bin arrived on time and was picked up as expected. We chose Budget Bin for their great prices and will be sure to use their services again. Highly recommend.

When we purchased our home, it came with a hot tub in the backyard. The cover on the tub was in need of replacement. After checking a few local hot tub shops, we drove past The Cover Guy's head office near our home and thought we would give them a shot. After receiving a very competitive quote, we went ahead and purchased our cover. The cover served us well for many, many years. It was made of quality, durable fabrics. We are now at the point that we need to replace the cover (it has been over 5 years) and we have no hesitations to purchase from The Cover Guy again. Highly recommend checking them out!

When we purchased our home, it came with an outdoor hot tub. Never having owned a hot tub before, we were unsure of the regular required maintenance and where to purchase our supplies from. The previous owners purchased the tub from Oakville Home Leisure, so we went to the store for help. Not only did the staff walk us through the recommended maintenance schedule, they also printed us out the steps necessary so we wouldn't forget. They also tested our water and told us what maintenance needed to be done and recommended the correct products. In the end, we likely saved money by buying just the recommended chemicals needed, versus guessing on our own, messing it up and having to drain our tub water just to start all over again. Highly recommend them for all of your hot tub needs.

After visiting a few local door stores in search of a new front door and window lites, we chose to work with Doorway. Doorway came highly recommended to us by our contractor. Rick provides excellent customer service and a superb product. Pricing is competitive with other local options, but you can't put a price on honest, good service. Highly recommend!

We heard of Calibre Electric from our landscaper who used this company to wire a hot tub. We had a similar job, so we called to book an appointment. The electrician came to quote the job - his pricing was fair and he recommended the best type of electrical wiring for the job, as well as a safety shut off. He was very knowledgable and honest. He returned to complete the job when our landscaper had the trenches in place for the electrical. We were so pleased with his work that we hired him on for additional electrical work within our home. Calibre Electric has become our #1 source for all of our home electrical needs. We have them on speed dial! We recommend them to all of our family, friends and neighbours.

When it came time to purchase carpet for installation in our newly refinished basement, we went to Alexanian Carpet & Flooring. Their selection was great and the staff were knowledgeable and friendly. They helped us select the right under pad and carpet to suit our basement needs - it needed to be warm, soft and hold up to heavy traffic, including our Labrador Retriever (and all his hair!) The installers were great - punctual, efficient and completed a quality job. We would use Alexanian Carpet & Flooring again in the future.

When we purchased our 1970s bungalow, it was apparent that some new windows were in order. We consulted with our contractor and he recommended Desi's Aluminum for all of our window needs. Being first time home owners, we weren't certain which type of windows would be best for our home. Desi came to our house and we discussed all of the windows that needed replacing and he suggested which windows to use. We also discussed repairing some exterior aluminum around some windows to prevent any future leaks from occurring. His team came in one day and got to work replacing our windows, fixing aluminum where required and trimming out the windows inside the house. We couldn't have asked for a better team of people to be working on our job. Also, the expertise that Desi provides is something that you can't find in a big box store. His knowledge of the products that he carries is top notch and his crew of installers are the best! I highly recommend Desi and his team to all of my family and friends!

After searching local fabric stores without any luck for quality fabrics, I turned to the internet and stumbled upon Tonic Living. The owner, Janine, and her staff are AMAZING! Not only do they have a HUGE online selection of fabrics (everything from home decor fabrics to quilting fabrics), but they also offer competitive prices on professional custom sewing services - from draperies to pillows and more. When requesting a quote for custom draperies for my daughter's room, the staff at Tonic Living were very kind and knowledgable. They managed to turn my quote around very quickly and made adjustments to suit my needs. Shipping is super fast and I'm so pleased with my final product. I will never step foot in another local fabric chain again - Tonic Living is now my one-stop shop for all of my fabric and custom sewing projects for my home. I hear they also have a warehouse in Toronto. I have yet to go and explore because, really, the online experience has been so wonderful!

We have been long-term customers of Legends Landscape Supply since the company's inception. The husband and wife team of owners are very friendly and knowledgable about the products they carry and offer great suggestions in terms of usage. Over the years, we have purchased yards and yards of soil and mulch, aggregates, quarry products and seed from them to complete our landscaping projects. They offer prompt delivery (even same-day service when we were in a pinch!) and the products are always top notch, as is the pricing. Legends Landscape Supply is a hidden gem in Burlington. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to complete landscape projects.

Just a few days shy of our due date with our first child, we discovered multiple gas leaks in our basement from our 40 year old system. The joints were leaking and our service was shut off. Nick came on a Sunday evening to assess/quote the job and returned on the Monday to complete the repair. Nick's work is good and so is his word. He takes his work very seriously, which is what you want when you encounter a gas leak in your home. We have no hesitations using Nick in the future for any gas fitting needs.

We had the pleasure of dealing with Scott and Heath of NewRidge Refinishing. We chose to have them come in and provide an estimate on refinishing our hardwoods after reading such positive reviews on Homestars. We are so glad we went with their company! Scott was very prompt in replying to my emails and was very friendly to deal with. Heath did a great job on the floors - from sanding, filling, staining and urethaning our worn looking hardwoods floors. They are so gorgeous now! Heath also did a great job matching the stain to some existing floors we had in the house already. I would recommend this company to any of my friends and feel confident that they would get a quality job. The pricing seems very fair and reasonable. Thanks Scott and Heath for breathing new life into our hardwoods!
