Main Floor Renovation

After working with other contractors and being frustrated by the lack of organization and communication, we found Ashton Renovations to renovate our main floor, including kitchen and living room. We chose them after speaking with Mark who provided a clear outline. We also appreciated that Ashton is a family run business and they advertise that they provide a clear and transparent process. Mark, Chris and the whole team were wonderful to work with. We began all of the planning through zoom meetings, since it was mid lockdown, and appreciated the 3D renderings of the plans as we went along. Mark was always responsive to our questions or concerns along a way. Our living room and kitchen is beautiful and exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Ashton Renovations and would choose them again for any renovation we have. They follow through and provide a clear and transparent process, as well as excellent, high quality work!

Beyond our expectations!

We worked with Mark and his team at Ashton Renovations on a total upgrade to our downtown condo. The project involved taking the walls down to the studs, raising the ceiling, adding a den and installing a stylish modern kitchen and bathroom. We started the project early in the COVID lockdown so things took longer than anticipated but Mark, Chris and the rest of the team were very professional in keeping us updated and adjusting the work plans to meet the various restrictions. We are absolutely delighted with the final product. Mark and his team has transformed our dream into reality. It’s beyond our expectations. We would definitely use them again!

Great job on full master bathroom renovation

I recently completed a master bathroom full renovation with Ashton Renovations and could not be happier with it! Mark, Chris and team were professional, courteous and experts in their fields. Everything was completed to the highest quality and the pride they all take in their work is evident. Communication was also good, getting the right balance of getting my input where needed/appropriate and just getting on with moving the job along. Unavoidable covid-related delays did result in the job taking a bit longer than originally thought, but Mark kept me updated and everyone did their best to expedite things. I even had a plumber show up on a Saturday to ensure near the end that all could be finished. I would definitely recommend Ashton Renovations and would use them again. Thanks so much for the great work!

Ensuite bathroom

We completed a full ensuite bathroom renovation with Ashton Renovations and are so thrilled with the results. From the start of the project when Mark took our vision and translated it into a beautiful design, to the final finishes at the end the team has been friendly and responsive, and held themselves to the highest quality. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mark, Chris and the team to my friends and family.

Hi Kara

Whole Home Renovation

After meeting with several contractors, we hired Ashton Renovations to do an extensive renovation on our house, including designing and renovating our kitchen, turning our unfinished basement into a family room and creating a new three-piece bathroom. From the start, we were impressed with Mark’s consultative approach.

This was our first home renovation and throughout the process Mark was always responsive to our questions and promptly returned our calls. His crew and tradespeople were respectful and friendly, and always keep the job site clean. The team’s attention to detail and craftsmanship are impressive. The pandemic significantly delayed our project, but Mark kept us informed throughout. When it was safe to resume work, the COVID-19 safety protocols that he put in place left us feeling reassured about allowing the trades back into our house to finish the job.

We are so pleased with all aspects of our renovation and would highly recommend Mark and his team.

Whole house renovation

We had Ashton renovation complete an extensive kitchen and bathroom renovation on our 100 year old Toronto home. After considering several home renovation companies across the city, it was their thoughtful, organized and thorough design and build plan that sold us.

The Ashton Renovation team was incredibly collaborative, professional, and responsive and they exceeded our every expectation. Our renovation included knocking out an exterior brick wall to create an open concept kitchen, enlarging and completely overhauling our upstairs bathroom, brand new plumbing and electrical, as well as updating our front entry and basement. Mark was an excellent project manager. He included us in all decision making and provided updates and expert advice along the way. He managed the trades people and renovation schedule meticulously. They were on time, courteous, impressive, and maintained a clean worksite.

Ashton Renovations took all necessary precautions related to Covid-19 so that we felt safe and comfortable throughout the renovation process.

We couldn’t be happier with the outcome! We highly recommend Ashton Renovation to anyone undertaking an extensive renovation on their home. They are experts when it comes to navigating the challenges of renovating an old home.

Bathrooms Reno and other house repairs

We worked with Ashton Renovations (Mark, Chris and their network of professionals) to renovate our 2.5 bathrooms and other miscellaneous repairs around the house. We bought our house last year and we were new to renovations (prior condo dwellers). Initially, we just wanted to renovate two outdated bathrooms, and as the renovations progressed each day, we increasingly felt our powder room (not included in the original renovation plan) was more than just an eyesore, we then asked Mark to add the powder room on the list as well. Mark always communicated well and updated us the renovation status timely, he always tried to think from a client’s perspective such as what is necessary and what is nice but costly and unnecessary, so clients have options to choose whatever fits into their needs and budget. Everyone on Mark’s team is highly professional, respectful, and friendly, and they focused a lot on the details. We are very happy with our bathrooms and other minor repairs!

Since we are new to home renovations, we had lots of questions for Mark and Chris, including things that were completely out of scope of bathroom renovations. They were always patient and explained things to us in detail, and they made practical recommendations to us, we also learned some painting techniques from them. We would definitely recommend Ashton Renovations. To us, Mark, Chris and the team are not just transactional contractors, they are partners who helped us fixed our house from the beginning (literally before we even moved in), and will help us with maintenance and fixes in the future.

Exterior renovation

We hired Mark for a complicated job rebuilding a very old and badly damaged carport with a roof that wraps around our house covering our front foyer, an outdoor shed, and a back patio. The job involved the coordination of many trades and was complicated by an early winter and then the pandemic. However, Mark did an excellent job and was always very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. He was quick to remedy issues and provide information on budget, next steps, and to work with us on a rebuild that matched our vision. I would definitely hire Mark again.

Old house partial renovation

We worked with Mark Ashton on a pretty intricate old house partial renovation where we finished our basement, replaced all plumbing right out to the street, rerouted and expanded HVAC, completely rebuilt an upstairs washroom and added another in the basement, and added an island and dishwasher on the main floor of our tiny kitchen. This project was complex with a lot of dependencies and we were living in the house throughout, so it presented a lot of challenges. Mark and his team & network did an amazing job of getting things exactly the way we wanted, and though the project took longer than expected due to some surprises discovered along the way, we knew that there was always a focus on quality work. When certain subcontractors messed up (it happens), the problem was always corrected to get it right, with no extra costs - they stand by their work which is important. Having their experience and suppliers to draw from was an asset, and led us to a better end result than we had initially imagined. We're happy with the result, and our house is much more liveable now, thanks Ashton Renovations!

Kitchen renovation

We bought our home in the upper beaches area back in 2016. Ever since we moved in we knew we wanted to redo the kitchen, it was a mess, it just took so long to finally decide to do it as it is such a huge investment. For our dream kitchen to come to life, we needed a lot of renovations:
- Structural changes to the wall in the dining room and the load bearing wall that ran through the kitchen. Mark and his team put in the extra work to ensure the structure and foundation was to code and safe. The beam that replaced the load bearing wall was supported on the main floor as well as in the basement with appropriately placed support posts.
- Chris spent a lot of time ensuring that our warped floor was level before we even considered flooring and cabinets - something other contractors have overlooked in the past.
- In addition to the structure changes, the Ashton team also tackled: flooring, plumbing, electrical, drywall, hvac, installation of a new oven hood (finally!), dishwasher, a brand new sink and most importantly - our new cabinets. The trim work was impeccable and the painting was performed with precision.
- The cabinets are the staple piece of our new kitchen. They are made of plywood with high quality hardware. Not only are they robust, but also look very sleek.

Most importantly, Mark, Chris and the rest of the Ashton team were an absolute pleasure to work with. Also to mention, our first baby was on the way so it was stressful having a house under construction. Mark is very trustworthy and gives you the sense that you are in good hands. He explains the process well, keeps you informed on progress and was always available when we needed him most! Chris is a fantastic general contractor - he does great work. He also makes you feel comfortable and that you are in good hands - this is especially important because kitchen renovations can be stressful.

We would highly recommend Ashton Renovations to anyone that wants a fantastic kitchen with intelligent design and a great customer experience.

Thank you Mark, Chris and team for everything you guys did for us!
