10/10

If I could give the Markham Garage Doors greater than 10/10 rating, I would! Chris and Kevin run a professional and honest business. We first had our garage doors installed by Markham Garage Doors quite a few years ago and the entire process and after-service were exceptional. This year, when my mother needed a new garage door to replace her old one, I knew exactly who to call. Kevin provided me the options and quoted a very reasonable price. We scheduled the install at a mutually convenient time. John came to do the installation of the garage door and he was very friendly, quick and neat. A couple of days later Robert came to install aluminum frame capping as well as a new vinyl header over the garage door. He too was a very nice and friendly gentleman. The way the capping is installed by the Markham Garage Doors crew is very different from everything I have seen other companies do – there is no messy calking involved and the finished product looks fully integrated with the brick of the house. Robert re-installed the light fixture over the garage door and even polished it for my mother, so now it looks like new. We could not have been happier. A couple of weeks ago I receive a call from Kevin who told me that during the install they noticed a minor imperfection on one of the garage door panels and the new replacement panel was ready to be installed. I can honestly say that if he did not call, I would never know that there was a defect. But Markham Garage knew there was one and they wanted to make sure everything was perfect. A little while later the new panel was re-installed. The new garage door looks great! Thank you again, Markham Garage Doors!

David Amariz was recommended to me 3 years ago by my plumbing fixtures’ supplier when I needed a custom vanity done for a bathroom renovation. I had very specific design in mind and I e-mailed to David my dimensions and ideas. David responded promptly with the design and quote which was very reasonable for a custom vanity. When I went with my contractor to pick-up the vanity, we asked to see the workshop and we both were amazed how clean and organized it was. The vanity David made was perfect and 3 years later we could not have been happier with it. I recommended David to a few of my friends and they were all happy with his work. This year it was time to redo our kitchen. We were renovating the kitchen for ourselves and wanted to make sure it was done right and done to meet our family’s needs. I called David and he quickly returned my call and within a couple of days came to the house to take initial measurements. I was the one designing the kitchen layout and sourcing all the materials and David and his wife were of great help providing many useful suggestions that I did not even consider. After a couple of days of his initial visit he sent me initial 3D drawings with a quote. David also provided several cost saving options that I was happy he recommended. We established the project timeline that worked for all parties. Before and during the kitchen manufacturing and installation I had some questions for David and he ALWAYS responded to my calls and e-mails which is something that is unfortunately not that common in this business these days. David was ready when he said he would be, he always contacted me to let me know when he would be coming, he was very respectful of my house and did not leave a mess behind when he left at the end of the day. In the middle of the project I decided to switch and use his quarts sub-contractor who he recommended for their quality of work. Despite having to pay a bit more, it gave me a peace of mind not to have to manage this aspect of the reno. During the installation project we ran into a few issues with the walls and ceilings not being straight, etc. and David and I both worked together to come up with the best solution. David did not rush through the install and made sure everything was as perfect as possible (although I would caution people to expect 100% perfection). We had a few delays beyond David’s control and he was able to work around the new extended schedule. My kitchen was completed a week ago and we are extremely happy with it as well as with the way the work was handled by David! The quality of the kitchen cabinets and installation is excellent, and I already had many compliments on the final product. I would definitely use David on any other project I may have and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

We neede to replace our sagging backyard patio as well as the front driveway and the walkway. Alex spent time with me coming up with options and optimum design, driving with me to the stone supplier and helping me navigate through the multitude of stone choices to ensure the optimum cost to meet the needs. I am quite detail oriented and can be picky, but Alex understood my wishes and concerns and was very helpful through the entire process. He arranged for the city to come to the property and mark utilities. Once the work started, he made sure that he consulted with me on the last minute design options and my husband and I thrilled with the final result. The work was done a year ago and Alex came by in the spring to make sure there were no issues and even did the "touch up" where needed. A year later we are still as happy with the work done as we were last year. Thank you, Alex!

We needed to have our back door replaced and Mario Tavares of Residential Door Systems was recommended to us by another Homestars contractor we used in the past. When Mario came to provide us with the estimate, he was very friendly and clear about the services and the cost. He knew exactly what we were looking for and quoted us a very reasonable price. Once we signed a contract and ordered the door, it took about 2 weeks before the door was ready and Mario was the one that came to install it. After the door was installed, he was not quite happy about the length of the door trim and he came back the next day to replace the trim to make sure it was perfect. In addition to the door install I asked him to replace window calking (not very well done by another contractor) and Mario did that without extra charge. After he finished our door installation, he also droped by my parents house to fix their sliding door. We very pleased with Mario and very satisfied with the work he did. We could see that Mario takes pride in his work and he wants to make sure that his Customers are satified with his work. We would not hesitate to use him for another project and would recommend him to anyone needing to install a door.

We were looking to do a complete brick to brick front double door replacement, in addition to the wrought iron inserts. Based on all the wonderful reviews for What A Pane, we called them and Murray was at our house the very next day. He was extremely helpful and provided us with all the choices and information we needed. Our new doors (front entry as well as the entry from the garage to the house) were installed yesterday. Tudor who was our installer was excellent - very detail oriented and patient. Before the work was even finished, the neighbors were coming up to the house with their compliments on our new doors and asking us for the contact information for What a Pane. The lock that was supplied with our new door was not working perfectly and Tudor called the lock manufacturer and insisted that they come to fix it right away (which they did). We could not have been happier with our new doors and the service we received from What A Pane. Thank you Murray, John and Tudor! Most reviews I read for What A Pane are about inserts, but I would highly recommend them for bigger installation jobs because they really know doors and take pride in the work they do.
