Complete house renovation

Somerset completed the complete gut and overhaul of our newly purchased, uninhabitable, 1908 house. We couldn’t be happier with the process and the results; the team turned it into a home. Graeme, Sandeep, and the Somerset team treated all of our discussions with honesty and respect and we fully appreciated the partnership. Somerset’s trades are top notch with excellent workmanship and knowledge. We would recommend Somerset to anyone looking to complete a project!

Genuine partners and great results!

My wife and I could not be more happy with the service we received from Somerset Construction and our relationship with them. For starters, we're thrilled with our (renewed) house. It's a beautiful as we had hoped and from the beginning we felt that Somerset shared that vision.

This happy result was the product of a very productive and collegial relationship with Somerset. With such a big job, we spent a lot of time together! We felt Somerset understood what we wanted, listened to our needs and tried to accommodate us as best as they could. Of course, our project had some inevitable surprises. Somerset helped us make good decisions under pressure and they worked hard to keep a lid on costs. In the end, our house was finished nearly on time and on budget. Everyone told us this wouldn't happen. Wrong!

Our one regret after moving back is saying a partial goodbye to Graeme and Sandeep. They were a welcome part of our lives and we owe them a debt of gratitude.

Built a Dream Home

We retained Graeme @ Somerset Construction to manage the construction of our dream home in Port Credit. Our project was a full teardown of an old side-split house from the 1950's to build a modern 4000+ sq. ft. home. We were on a strict timeline, and though a few basement walls and some paint had yet to be done, we moved and celebrated Christmas in our new home within 10 months of the demolition of the old house.

Building a house from a hole in the ground is never easy, but Graeme ensured our dealings with the various trades were smooth and, where necessary, fixed promptly. He and his trades made great suggestions along the way without pushing an "upsell" - many little changes we never thought of made a big difference. Every issue and step in the construction plan was addressed in a straight up, direct, and professional manner. Importantly, cost control was always at the forefront of his decisions and suggestions, and I have no doubt our project would have cost much more without his efforts. We have a dream home because of Graeme.

Very Well Done Job

We selected Somerset to gut and renovate our Toronto house. We are very happy with the result and with their ability to keep things moving continuously and getting us back in our home within days of the anticipated end date. The quality of the work was top notch – and was apparent even before the drywall and finishings went up. Best of all, everyone was very easy to work with: both Graeme and Sandeep on the Somerset side, but also most of the sub-contractors I had occasion to interact with. For the majority of those sub-contacted jobs we went with Graeme’s suggestions of who he’s worked with in the past, and where we did, the results were fantastic.

Due to a permit situation, we had to cut this job in half and renovate the interior of our house first, and wait for a permit to do the exterior and an addition. Which means we could conceivably change contractors at this point if we weren’t entirely happy. But we won’t – we’ll gladly work with Graeme and Sandeep on the second phase of this project.

Total condo reno

After purchasing our condo we discussed total renovation with a few construction companies. Somerset impressed us the most & did not disappoint. The results are of the highest quality thanks to the recommendations, guidance & trades people supplied by Somerset. Their staff stayed close to the project, were in regular attendance, saw timeously to any queries & ensured completion on time. We are very comfortable in our new home, happy with the results of the reno & would, without reservation, recommend Somerset for any similar project.

THEY GOT IT DONE ON TIME!

We were referred to Graeme from a close friend who had utilized him to get a major reno complete. Graeme was always on time, knowledgeable and friendly. Never felt taken advantage of or ripped off while working with him. His honesty is unmatched.

We had a 5month hard stop on a major renovation including adding a brand new floor. We moved in on time. I think that's unheard of. Obviously comprimises need to made as issues come up. But I can honestly say that as long as you make your decisions on time Somerset can deliver on time.

Great experience

I hired Somerset to rebuild my back deck and free standing garage. They were professional, on time, and easy to deal with. The finished product is fantastic, and I am really happy with the quality of the work, and the project was completed within an appropriate schedule. Graeme and his team were accessible, and wanted to make sure that we were happy, both during the work, and once the work was complete.

Bathroom renovation

We had a 1950's style bathroom totally renovated through Somerset Construction & were extremely happy with all the trades they coordinated for this project. The job was not completed until we were completely satisfied. Thank you Somerset for another fantastic job!

Gut to the studs and add 50% more S.F

We had a decrepit 100 plus year old home with termites and asbestos. Graeme helped us navigate at city hall with the permit application and problems with our survey. We were on a very tight budget and he was very accommodating to our needs. Not everything is done perfectly by the sub trades but we always knew that it would be fixed to our satisfaction.
