We hired Cullen Landscaping Ltd for a landscaping design service. After several consultations (at home and at office) the designer provided us with a wonderful landscape design which suited our needs. Subsequently, we hired them to do some landscaping work (preparation of land for patio and walkway, re-slopping the backyard, prepping land for new garden beds). As we wanted to do some of the work ourselves to save money, we worked out a deal with Cullen Landscaping Ltd so that they did only part of the work. They even suggested that we get the work done towards the end of the season so that we could get a discount on the labour. We really appreciated their cooperation on this. Their work was superb. The customer service was far beyond what is expected. Their staff are extremely friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. We would definitely hire them again!

We hired Ottawa Tree Surgeons to trim the top and side of the long cedar hedge along our property (approx 70' long). They did an excellent job! Everyone we dealt with was very professional and friendly. They conducted the work soon after it was requested, were punctual and tidy. During the free quote I received great advice regarding other areas of my property. I would definitely hire this company again.

My husband and I hired Insultech to install expanding foam insulation in our 1948 home. Insultech was very professional and dependable. The representative who first came to the home was very trustworthy and knowledgeable. Insultech drilled 450 small holes throughout the house and blew in expanding foam insulation. Although they were friendly, fast and efficient the only problem was that I don't feel that I was properly warned at how much dust would result from the work. They cleaned up pretty well but there was a thin layer of dust everywhere from drilling into plaster walls that I wasn't expecting. Other than that we were very happy with Insultech.

My husband and I hired Ottawa Building & Foundation Repair (OBFR) last Spring to waterproof our basement. Our house was built in 1948 and didn't have weeping tile or any type of waterproofing membrane (which we only found out after having a bit of water in our basement when the snow melted). We received a few quotes and was most comfortable with Nathan (owner of OBFR). He took the time to answer our never-ending list of questions. Him and his team are very dependable and trustworthy. When comparing companies I found that pricing was pretty much the same across the board so I went with the person I thought would do the best job and I wasn't disappointed. Since my foundation was a block foundation they had to excavate around the perimeter of my house. That took a few weeks because they discovered massive rocks in the ground. Be prepared for this project to take longer than you might think. Like with all renos things arise that you couldn't have predicted. A few issues arose with my neighbour (who's driveway goes right up to our house) but they were taken care of by Nathan in a very professional way. No complaints from me at all! One good thing to know is that excavation will really change the landscape of your home. If you're not handy with landscaping/gardening I would consider hiring a landscaper. OBFR cleaned up the site to the best of their abilities but when it came to re-seeding the grass they were not experts in that field and were not being paid to landscape as a professional landscaper would.

We had Oliver Painting come in to patch our plaster walls after we had spray foam insulation installed in our house. We had 450 holes in our house and they were ale to patch the walls and paint the staircase in less than one day. When they left the house was very clean, Very nice people.
