Excellent work!

My wife and I hired Barry at Artiste Renovations to do a big renovation job before we moved into our new house. It involved several subcontractors: electrician, carpets, plumbing, drywall, and painting.

Overall, Barry did a wonderful job of organizing everything, and keeping it all as low-stress for us as I think is possible. Surprisingly, it was all done in a much shorter amount of time than expected! I think it was all completed 10 days before he had estimated it would be.

The carpet installer did wonderful job of the installation - the carpet looks great, and seems secure - but left things quite untidy. There were lots and lots of little strands of fibre, presumably from the cutting of the carpet, just absolutely everywhere. Our vacuum didn't do a good job of picking them up, so we're just dealing with having carpet fluffs everywhere for now. Also there were a few bits and pieces left behind, like a small triangle of carpet left on a shelf, things like that.

The lighting fixtures were one of most stressful parts. We selected the new fixtures ourselves, and afterward found out a couple of them couldn't go in the locations we'd chosen them for, for example because the base of one wasn't wide enough to cover the hole in the ceiling that it was going into, so we had to select alternate locations for a few at the last minute. We were recommended a very specific type of lightbulbs which we couldn't find locally, so ordered on Amazon. The electrician said one of our light fixtures isn't dimmable even though the web site we ordered it on and the box it came in both said it is, so that's something we're going to figure out later on. But other than that, in the end the light fixtures turned out looking great and working well.

I'm very impressed with the drywall and painting in particular. There were tasks that you can't tell were done because the walls look so smooth and nice, like that's how they originally were. (Removing some sconces from a wall, removing built-in shelves from a wall, and changing the corners of a doorway from rounded to right angles.) It all looks lovely!

I'm sure we were quite annoying to work with, because we kept adding more tasks to the job as we thought of more things we wanted done, but Barry took it all in stride. He let us know what was and wasn't possible, and didn't give us a hard time about it. The only downside is that because of the way we added tasks, we didn't find out the total cost until it was all done, but that wasn't unexpected. We had been given an accurate quote for the initial list of tasks, and then the final cost had all the additional stuff added on.

At the beginning of the job, Barry took a key, which he kept in a lockbox outside the house for the subcontractors. That was very convenient for us, as we didn't have to go to the house to let people in.

In conclusion: any complaints I might have are either unavoidable aspects of doing such a big job, or are pretty minor. A lot of great work was done in a very quick amount of time, for what I believe is a reasonable amount of money. Barry was very organized and accommodating, and managed all the other workers in a way that limited our stress. I'm very happy with the work that was done, and would recommend Artiste Renovations to others.

Thanks Jamie. We enjoyed doing this project for you and the add-ons are a normal part of our life so that doesn't throw us off at all. As it turned out all our subs were available when we needed them. Hence the fast turn around. You have a lovely home and I sincerely hope you have many years of enjoyment there. I wish you all the best for 2021 and beyond.

Kitchen, bathrooms, mudroom

Barry previously completed a basement renovation for us and we were very happy with the quality of the work. This time we brought him back to do kitchen, bathroom and mudroom renovations in our new home, and once again the work was excellent. Many of his employees and subs have worked with him for years, they are honest, organized, reliable and respectful of the home. I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again, or recommend to friends and family.

Foyer Tiling and Fresh Look Upgrade

It was time to update the look in our 20-year old home, so we worked with Artiste Renovations to swap out oak trim, casings and jambs in our home and to replace our foyer tile to give our home an updated and cleaner look.
This is the second time that we have used Artiste Renovations for work in our house - we used them in 2019 to renovate our bathrooms. By visiting Artiste's suppliers, my wife and I were able to educate ourselves on what is available and what we liked. Because Barry (the owner) and his team have substantial renovation experience and expertise, they enhanced and improved upon the ideas that my wife and I had. Barry worked well with us, he listened to our ideas and made them come true. The end results have exceeded our expectations and are stunning.
Barry and his team are easy to work with and are very competent and professional. They keep their work areas clean and uncluttered. This was important to us because we continued living in our home as the renovations were completed.
We have further projects planned for our home in 2021 to bring a more modern look to our oak kitchen and we will be using Artiste Renovations to complete this work. We know that the end result will be spectacular.

Bedroom and living space reno

We needed to create a new bedroom, add railings to stairs and quite a few other things to a house we purchased. We contact 3 contractors, and their references. Artiste was not the cheapest but they got the best references, Barry was easy to communicate with and their price was in the same ballpark as the others we contacted.
The ease of communication was important as there were a few changes, additions we needed to make to the project as it went on. We were happy with the result, the bedroom and the rails etc all look wonderful.
I would recommend Artiste to anyone, and would use them in the future for other projects.

Major home renonvation

I contacted Artiste for some major renovations to the house we were buying. The house had location and interior layout for us and we felt it was worth upgrading from a 2006 design to a 2019 design.

Barry came over and we discussed what had to be done. A that time things were quiet for Artiste. My wife and I discussed the project and when we gave Barry to go ahead and signed the document, work for him exploded and we had to wait about 4 months before he could start. Once underway it was a 3-month job - kitchen, 3 bathrooms, front entry. Now we have a home that supports our lifestyle and is modern.

Barry and his team were wonderful to deal with and after 3 months you sure get to know them. My only caution is I would try and stay away from the summer months for reno work. Vacations can play havoc with the trades and Barry has only those who he considers skillful. Some times you have to wait a bit on a trade however, other work was being done during that interval.

Artiste planned their work flow around our need to continue to live in the house while under renovation. We always knew what the next phase of the work would be so could adjust accordingly. Given some dust is created during renovations, Artiste always placed plastic sheets over our furniture to minimize any cleaning after the work is completed.

All in all we are pleased with Artiste and would use them again if a reno project was required.

Thank you - great job!

We decided back in the fall of 2018 to have our kitchen gutted and to replace everything. Artiste Renovations came highly recommended from colleagues at the U of A so they were our first stop. The professionalism was evident right from the beginning. Barry was able to capture what we were looking for and began work in May 2019. It certainly wasn't fun watching our kitchen of 20+ years being demolished but now that the work is done (about 7 weeks later) we are thrilled with the result. Thank you, Barry, Hans, and the many contractors involved. Great job!!

Bathroom renos and flooring

Artiste came recommended via word of mouth - from two different sources. I am so happy with the two bathroom renos and main level flooring replacement completed by Barry and his team. They were always reliable, responsive and did great quality work.

Kitchen Renovation 2016

Artiste delivers outstanding project management, renovation know-how and expertise in planning, coordination and quality of trades people. Dedicated tradesmen was professional and of high standard workmanship. Barry planned and managed the project very well and visited the project site regularly, addressing issues proficiently. Trades showed up when scheduled, on time, and their professionalism was notable.

Bathroom Reno

I called Barry at Artiste Renovations for an initial bathroom quote. He came over and reviewed what I wanted done for our bathroom. He provided us with a quote and another option for what we wanted done in the bathroom.

During our renovation, Barry was very professional, always kept in contact with me via email or text, kept me in the loop of the progress of the work, ensured that everything that I wanted completed in the bathroom was done.

We are satisfied and extremely pleased with the quality of workmanship of the tiling of our bathroom (thank you, Lorne!) the installation of the fixtures, the smooth process of the renovation and the relationship that we developed with Barry. When we asked for something to be completed or inquired about an add on or even to increase the heat of the water coming out of our showerhead, Barry was prompt and knowledgeable with his responses.

This was our first house renovation and we are very happy to have our bathroom completed!

Thank you Artiste Renovations!
