We used LDT to replace two windows on our current house. We used them about 13 years ago to replace a large picture window with lower sliders as well. In the most recent work, they replaced a kitchen and bedroom window. Stavros visited on site to take measurements and made some helpful suggestions. We went with an awning style for our kitchen to replace a slider. The window works very smoothly and opens up the space. The bedroom window was changed to a double hung from a single pane crank out. The screens are practically invisible. Installation was done in a tidy and efficient manner. The installer was very punctual, personable and hard working. The timing and price were excellent and were better than several other estimates. We had our windows within 6 weeks, when others had quoted us up to 3 months (due to delivery system delays). LDT makes some of their windows on site, which speeds up the process. Photos show before and after for kitchen. We have not finished the carpentry yet. Overall, very happy with their work and product and would recommend.

We got a quote from Balsam based on a recommendation from our neighbourhood facebook group. We had another company have a look first, but were put off by the impression that everything was a hassle, that there were a lot of urgent issues, some marital advice thrown in, and general superior attitude. Peter from Balsam was a breath of fresh air! He has such a positive, 'can-do' attitude, and he and his team work very well together. It was a pleasure to work with them. Peter is very knowledgeable, but shares his knowledge with kindness and generosity. We have a very old (maybe 75 years) tub, which did not have an overflow valve. The drain was in a very tight space in our wall, which happened to be open due to a kitchen renovation. Working in the space was not a problem for them. Peter had only see one like that a few times in his career. He was happy about having the opportunity to train his team on it. A big difference from viewing it as a hassle. The team found ways to save us money where possible. They installed our new bathroom vanity, along with new tap and the kitchen sink got new tap, drains and pipes, all done very tidily. Our upstairs toilet was replaced, along with taps for bathroom sink, and a new seal ring for our main floor toilet. In addition, Peter and team worked to replace a very old rusted out rad intake pipe in a hard to reach place. New rad shut off knobs were also supplied. system checked, etc. All work was done in a tidy and quick fashion. Scheduling the jobs around our kitchen reno over multiple days was very easy with Maureen in the office. Over all, we loved working with Balsam plumbing and recommend them whole heartedly.

We used Canlik to install a new kitchen in our older home. We kept that same footprint due to architectural limitations. Victor was able to do an excellent draft plan based on the photos we submitted and then was able to present them to us in a follow up zoom meeting. Despite the space limitations, Simon was able to make some excellent suggestions on site when he came to measure. These suggestions were a great improvement on our original plan and gave us additional counter and storage space, and improved the overall workflow and look of the kitchen. It is a small space, but Simon was able to innovate some small cabinets and storage shelves to maximize the space. They worked with us to find a way to expand our sink capacity to 1.5 sinks. Simon and the counter installer were also helpful in determining the final look and layout and finish of our counter tops during the onsite visit. The installers were very efficient and precise. Even though our house is over 100 years old with pretty much no square/plumb corners/surfaces, they had the laser technology that allowed them to fit the cabinets precisely, line them up so they are square with our flooring, and level, etc. The cabinets and drawers seem sturdy and we are happy with the finish. There was a considerable delay in the door fronts, but that was due to pandemic delays and outside their control. Simon was exceptionally responsive via email, text and quick in person visits when necessary. He is very kind and patient. Communication with the entire team has been excellent. Photos show before and after.

Extel was very responsive to our initial quote request and very easy to work with for scheduling. Pricing was fair. Chris was knowledgeable and personable. He found a way to relocate our gas pipe for a new cooktop installation that saved time and money; he didn't just go ahead and do what we had asked, which would have been the wrong placement and solution. At a later service call, Chris and another technician came to install the cooktop. Work was efficient, mess was cleaned up. We just had to make sure that the placement of the pipe and connection was in the right place according to the cook top installation instructions. A bit more time could have been taken to be clear on that. Stove works great, we have access to a safety shut off as requested. Overall, an excellent company to work with.

We have used Charles' services a few times over the past 11 years and have been very happy with his work. Charles is a problem solver and is able to work with old houses, knob and tube, etc. He explains his work and also gives options where they exist. Charles is very personable and communicates well. He is very responsive. Drywall cutting, when necessary, is done with clean lines and mess is cleaned up. He also shares his knowledge of the electrical code to make things safer for homeowners. I fully recommend his company.

Walter responded to a quote request via this site. He quoted after viewing our house. He was professional, punctual, and personable. He was hired to replace our dining room ceiling and have it match up with the existing living room ceiling. Walter is a problem solver and managed to finish some difficult stairway walls that we needed repaired. He worked quickly and was very clean. Walter also arranged for painters who did a great job. I 100% recommend his company.
