Stucco restoration to the front of the house

The front of the house, made of stucco, required extensive repair. Many cracks and chips had developed and water leaks were a real threat. In addition, we had had continual problems with the eavestroughs. They had been repaired and even replaced over the years but never seemed to work properly. David Bochner, the owner of Exterior by Design, met with me,explained the work to be done knowledgeably and in full detail. He described what was involved in replacing all the stucco, adding insulation and replacing the aluminum eavestroughs, and fascia. I was given a very reasonable quote. The work was completed in a timely manner and the original "Tutor" look of the house was preserved. Only the very best, top products were used, the resulting insulation was well above building code. and the entire space was waterproofed. The real test came about 3 weeks after the job had been completed. We had a terrible rain storm and for the first time in 20 years the eaves didn't overflow and conducted the water away from the house!
The workers on the job were all very professional and always on time. The property was left clean and the quality of the workmanship was superb.
I was delighted with the result and I would certainly recommend David Bochner and Exterior by Design.

Stucco

We learned about Exterior By Design-Stucco and Stone Inc.at the Toronto and Oakville Home Shows in March and April this year.

From our initial appointment to the completion of our project in May, David Bochner and his team were professional, reliable, knowledgeable, efficient and clean. Their attention to detail and quality of workmanship was superior in all respects. We now pay extra attention to other stucco projects in our area and nothing compars with Exterior by Design - Stucco and Stone Inc.

The pricing of the entire stucco project, aluminum soffits, facia and gutters was reasonable and fair. We relied on David and his team for suggestions on colour and trim design. Our raised bungalow now has a clean, classic look for which we are receiving lots of positive feedback. Best of all, we are already noticing decreases on our hydro bills because of the added insulation.

David said that we could trust him; we were not disappointed. He delivered on everything he promised and more! We are pleased to share our experience through this venue and are delighted to recommend David and Exterior By Design - Stucco ad Stone Inc. to our family friends and neighbours.

Stucco Exterior

Dear David - I wanted to send you a note to express our warmest thanks and sincere gratitude for all you and Exterior Stucco and Stone did to make our renovation so amazing!!
When I decided to proceed with you and your Company, for our major restoration project, it felt it was right, from the beginning. I was confident with my choice of contractors and knew I was in good hands. Two months later, when I look at my house, I am so thankful that I went with Exterior Stucco and Stone. My gut feeling instantly told me that you and your Company would be easy to deal with, deliver quality workmanship and great ideas to top off the finished product.
You absolutely delivered what you promised and always told me to trust you and you assured me not to worry that you will make sure I love the job, and you were right; I love the job that you and your team did for us.
I cannot tell you how many compliments we have had on the house and how many people have said it makes the other stucco jobs in the area look inadequate. You are definitely a high-end Company that takes pride and ownership in their work and customer satisfaction is your number one priority and your ultimate goal.
It would give me great pleasure to recommend you and your Company to anyone looking to reface their house in stucco, stone or both. We hope to work with you on other projects in the future.
With warmest regards,

Vicki White and Ron Burke

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

In 2013 my home on Indian Road in Toronto underwent a large renovation.The exterior Stucco work was completed by exterior by design-stucco and stone inc. David Bochner and his team of experts did a very professional job in a timely manner and I was thrilled with the workmanship and finishing.Customer service is excellent and calls were returned promptly and considerately. I would not hesitate to recommend the company.
Thank you David and your team.

Upper Home - Stucco r

Last summer, we had hired a local firm for a huge upper home stucco application. Long story shorter ... they finished PART of the job and then folded! They took our money and ran! We found Exterior By Design last fall at a home show. They came in, finished the stucco job, made constructive suggestions, and fixed what the prior contractor had messed up. All within budget, and all 'on time'. A GREAT Job by David Bochner and his team!

exterior stucco

We hired this company to do a stucco job for us. The team had a bit of a drive and showed up every day. We did have to call them back, but they did come back and they fixed the issue.

Stucco exterior of home, new roof & soffit & facia

My wife and I were very pleased with the colour and quality of the stucco exterior done to our home. The new roof looks great and the soffit and facia gave everything a neat, finished appearance. David took our drab old house and breathed fresh new life into it. I would be happy to recommended his services to prospective clients.

Stucco to Front of House and Rebuild Gable

I wish I had read the other review before giving our job to this company. I will start off by saying that the stucco quality and look of the job are very good.

But I would never go through the hassle of dealing with the owner again no matter how great the house looks. The price negotiations should have tipped me off to the lack of professionalism. There was not itemized written quote like other companies. He simply came and gave me a total off the top of his head. If I didn't seem to be pleased at the price, he asked if I thought it was too much, and would continue to lower it until I seemed to agree. This happened on both the initial quote and later work we decided to do. The workers were very sloppy around my house. They did not put a tarp over my plants and got stucco all over them -- several died this summer. We found plastic water bottles, coffee cups, cigarettes and stucco/styrofoam fragements everywhere. My mailbox had paint all over it. The worst was when my husband drove into our driveway and almost ran over a board with nails protruding up. The stone mason we hired after this company also found boards with nails in my garden and they had to rid the job site of garbage before starting their work. After seeing the mess left, my stone mason warned me to protect my new door if I called Custom Stucco Designs back again, because he did not trust they would be careful around the job site.

We had to pause the finishing of the entranceway so I could have stone set and a new door installed. When we called back the owner, he claimed that the moldings around the door would cost more than expected and tried to get more money out of us. Neither of us could fathom having to deal with him again so I hired another stucco company to finish this simple 6hr job for half of what he tried to tell me it would cost.

I listened to the owner complain about his health problems, his subcontractors, his other clients, and the fact that business was so slow that he was not making any money. In fact, he tried to tell me that he purposely took a loss on my job in hopes I would hire him to do the more expensive stonework. I told him that if indeed it was true, it was definitely not good business sense. I am so glad I did not hire them for the entire renovation. I would have paid double not to have to deal with them again!
