10/10

We loved Fred and Guido's work so much (our bathroom and main floor hardwood), that we decided to go with them for a total gut of our bathroom...and they did not disappoint! Fred worked with us to ensure that the quote was reasonable, and Guido was incredible throughout the reno process. Our basement was an old East York Bungalow that hadn't seen any love in years. the old brick was leaking water every time it rained, and it was dark and dingy. We hired Zaza to come in and waterproof it, install a new concrete floor, install a bathroom, bedroom and new laundry room. As with any reno, things pop up that aren't expected. But Guido was so flexible and thoughtful. There were areas that looked strange (bump outs in the wall that couldnt be moved), so Guido put doors on it and created a new HUGE closet. Our bathroom is as beautiful as the one he installed upstairs, spa like and peaceful with a walk in shower. Guido showed up EVERY DAY, and cleaned up EVERY DAY until the job was done. Our house is now everything we ever wanted, thanks to Fred and Guido and Team. Thank you so much for everything you did!

Meeting with Fred to discuss our plans was effortless - he guided us with his knowledge and Guido and Paul did an incredible job. Our dingy old bathroom has been transformed into a beautiful spa-like retreat! They brought the bathroom back to the studs, moved the plumbing around and extended the bathroom to encompass the useless cupboard outside the bathroom. Guido also suggested several design features that worked perfectly; larger tiles than we had initially chosen (the ones we chose would have shrunk the already small room), a perfect colour for the walls (we had chosen a colour that would have been WAY TOO cold!), and he chose the finishing tiles for around the new window and on top of the subway tile along the walls...it's just perfect. Guido and Paul also put down new flooring throughout the house - we had the original hardwood replaced, and new quarteround put in. They put in a new subfloor, and the squeakiness usually found in these old bungalows is gone! We also wanted the hood in the kitchen to be hooked up to the outside - which was done with ease by Guido. We had a microwave above the gas stove that Guido instructed that he was not comfortable putting back in as it was far too close to the stove, and not to code - so not only is my kitchen better ventilated, but it's also now safer. Thank you Guido!! It is important to also note - you definitely get the sense that Guido is very proud of the work that he does - and this is the type of person that you want doing the work in your home. The Zaza Team is so incredibly respectful of your home, and treat it as if it were theirs. The house was spotless each night when they went home for the evening, and they worked a full day EVERY DAY to get the job done on time. Fred and Guido make an incredible team! Fred is always available for any questions or concerns, and the payment schedule was fair and timed perfectly to the work being done. We are so happy with the work done that we're very much looking forward to our basement reno, that Zaza Contractors will be completing in the New Year!!
