Basement Renovation

From start to finish, the Home Improvement People were easy to work with and did a fantastic job with our basement renovation. When Philip came to check out our basement for the estimate, he listened to our concerns, offered great advice and worked with us in terms of the cost of the reno. Once the work started, Eli was great with communication and was always available if we had questions about the renovation process. Trevor, Chris, Ty and Christian completed our reno for us, and they all did awesome work! Trevor was always available to answer our questions as well as offer advice when planning out our basement floor plan. Chris does AMAZING tile work (see pictures attached). Christian took care of all of the electrical work for us and was very easy to work with.

Overall, all of the guys we met via our renovation with the Home Improvement People were polite, respectful and did fantastic work. They always listened to our concerns, answered our questions, were all easy to work with and did an amazing job! Now, we have a basement that we absolutely love, and it's all thanks to the Home Improvement People!

Bathroom remodel

Another job well done by the HIP! We love our remodeled bathroom. The job was scheduled to be completed while we were away for the week, and the crew finished everything in 7 working days. Gerhard, Nicolai, Elia and Haydee are all very easy to work with, great at communication and follow up when needed. Although we could have found a cheaper contractor, over the years we have come to appreciate the service and value of a company like HIP to deliver exactly what we asked for, be great communicators, and finish on time. The job included a few extras that were needed in our 100+ year old semi detached house to bring the electrical, plumbing, window, and insulation up to par. I highly recommend HIP to anyone looking for a contractor you can trust. I hope they stay in business forever, we will use Home Improvement People for all future renovations.

Kitchen renovation

Had a great experience working with this company. We needed a kitchen renovation and our friends recommended this company. It did not come out cheap overall, but was obviously worth it. It looks much bigger and brighter now.

Separate suite - basement reno

Made the experience of executing a full scale basement reno virtually stress free. Huge thank you to Trevor and the crew - Tyler, Chris, Christian - who worked tirelessly every day to get the project finished before Thanksgiving.
Always available to answer questions and very responsive, Trevor was endlessly accommodating with a smile.
On the front end, Philip, Elia and Charlotte took our vision and brought it to life with the final floorplan.
Would use HIP again in a heartbeat!

Basement renovation

We bought our first home in March and had issues with the basement from the very first day; plumbing issues and then we discovered mold. It was a nightmare. We have a baby coming and absolutely needed the space. HIP was our favourite from the beginning (they’re pictures are amazing) and they were also the cheapest. Philip was very nice, we went back and forth about what we could afford. He was very understanding. Elia, the project manager, was always available for questions and also very nice. The guys Chris and Carlos did an amazing job with the basement, they were great at capturing our expectations for the renovations and turning it into a reality, they left everything clean and were just great to have during the renovations. We’re in love with the results, we can finally enjoy the space downstairs peacefully. They’re still more projects to do around the house, HIP will probably become our go to contractors!

Main Floor Renovation

We had a great experience working with the Home Improvement People. Charlotte, who was the Designer, was easy to work with and very accommodating. She understood what we wanted and changes and revisions were made quickly. The Contractor, Steve, and his crew on site did a really good job. This could have been a very challenging project as it started in March right as everything shut down. The project continued with a crew of 2 people to keep everyone safe. We had only one trade on site at a time. The Electrician and kitchen installers were also very professional and did great work. We were also working from home dealing with the noise and dust. Even through all of that it only added an extra few weeks to the timeline. We were shut down for a couple of weeks waiting for the Building Inspector to come to site. There was only a couple of things that came up that needed to be changed. Steve was very helpful in providing a solution and changes were made the next day.
We are so pleased with the end result. I have attached a few pictures.

Main floor renovation

The Home Improvement People exceeded our expectations in every way. They removed the wall between our kitchen and living room making our main floor open concept. We got new kitchen cabinets, counter tops, backsplash, an island, new flooring throughout, pot lights, pendant lights, basically the whole room was gutted and redone. It looks exactly how we wanted it to look in fact I think it even looks better! Would highly recommend them. We will be calling them again for our bathroom renovations.

Bathroom reno

The work done by Nadia and Cornel exceded all my expectations.
Professional, polite, clean and thoughtful are just a few of the words to explain how happy we are with their work. From day one to the day they left it was always a pleasure dealing with them. The end product is better than we hoped.
They are not the cheapest out there but I believe the price reflects their dedication and attention to detail.
