Searching for a contractor is a challenge in today's market. My wife and I went through an indepth process to find Barry. Recommendations, various types of internet searches, and then meeting the owner. Barry is a rare find in todays market. He has true integrity. He listened to what we were looking to do, and gave suggestions that made sense. Nothing to 'enhance' the final cost, just improve on the quality and overall look.
Our home is a 1240 sq ft (per level), 50 year old bungalow. We did our exterior last summer, and the kitchen this summer. I am a person that is really picky on quality in product and finish, and onsite workers. I'm not easily impressed, nor fooled. Artiste Renovations met and exceeded my challenging nature.
Barry has a team of qualified, fast, and clean workers. He cares about them as people. Barry also supports the apprenticeship program.
He chooses his sub-contractors based on quality of product and service. Talking with the contractors you can see why they like to do jobs for Barry. They can adhere to the level of excellence within the services provided. All different crews did amazing work. I would ask them questions (knowing the correct answer), to see if they would try to use lower quality products or workmanship. None would. They would explain what they were using or doing and the reasons for it.
The suppliers we used from his list are equally impressive. They would learn what you are doing with your project and assist in making the right choices.
We would have contractors over that understand how a particular job should be done and look. The comments from the pro's are all top notch.
We are now proud owners of an amazing home. Try Artiste, you will be happy you did.
