Having designed our kitchen and ordered our cabinets from Aya, I needed a general contractor to help me get through all of the structural, electrical, gas, and plumbing work required to completely overhaul and rearrange our kitchen. I narrowed down my research on Homestars to two contractors and found that, for about the same total cost, Celio Group was prepared to do more work and go the extra mile to get the job done. This included a complete demo of the old kitchen down to the studs of a 106-year-old High Park home. There were some surprises along the way that ultimately slowed us down, but Aya was flexible enough to allow Celio Group the time needed to do the job properly. Anthony & Rob worked with an electrician of my own choosing while employing their own plumbers, gas experts, boarders and drywall tapers. All of the wiring was replaced, new venting and gas lines were installed to accomodate a new range/oven location, and entirely new plumbing from the bathroom above the kitchen to the laundry room next to it was installed when we found the existing plumbing to be a leaking mess. Celio Group did not take advantage of the surprises we encounterd behind the walls and kept the cost of extra work to a minimum. All of this plus boarding and taping of the new drywall was completed for a reasonable and very competitive price. Truthfully, the only shortcomings on the job were by a couple of the tradesmen who either caused some unfortunate damage, made a couple of minor errors or just didn't clean up after themselves as much as I would have liked. To their credit, Rob & Anthony were quickly on-site to address any of these problems themselves, tools in hand. The Aya installer ultimately had no problems whatsoever installing the cabinets to create our very unique kitchen. Celio Group had successfully worked with a combination of Aya renderings and my own additional details on other elements of the renovation. I would recommend Celio Group to friends and family because Rob & Anthony can get the job done for the right price in a timely manner.
