Fencing

Known Ted for a lot of years. It was a no brainer to hire him and his company to do the fencing work I wanted done. I’m a HVAC contractor and have seen their excellent work many times in job sites. I highly recommend him and his guys, who were very professional.

New deck

Ted and his crew completed a beautiful deck for me. Ted's suggestions made it so much better than I envisioned. It was completed quickly as scheduled. I requested one small change after completion and that was done the following week. The site was cleaned up when they left. Pricing was fair. Ted was excellent at responding to messages and keeping me updated. All the guys were very pleasant to have around. I will definitely have them back for other work and would highly recommend.

Full Reno

We reached out to YS GC for a much needed update to our new (to us) house. Ted and his crew were quick to meet up and review the plan. Ted was fully involved with the planning and shared our excitement and vision to start this large renovation. While his team is still working through the remaining items on the renovation, I felt it was important to share how well this has been going, as well as how quick everything has been thus far. Our full reno includes a full window replacement, 2 bathroom renovations, new flooring, removal of walls, new kitchen, new furnace.
I'll be sharing more feedback in early 2021 when the reno is done. But if it is anything like what he has done for our first bathroom and supporting wall removal, it will be stellar.

Ted and his crew completed a beautiful deck and fencing for me last year and I am so happy with everything. My dogs love it too!

I called YS back to complete a new roof and eaves for me this fall and am once again so happy with the work.

If you’re looking for courteous, reliable and professional company look no further. Ted and his crew are amazing and will always be go to for all my home Reno needs.

Deck replacement

YS did a deck replacement for me recently involving replacing rotten deck boards and some of the support structure. I am 100% pleased with the result. The work was carried out in a very professional manner. The crew was pleasant and very willing to explain what they were doing. The new deck looks fantastic. There were some unforeseen problems (rotted structural beams and some rodent damage), but these were solved with minimal delay. My yard was spotless when they left.
I recommend YS very highly

Basement Flooring

Professional and very timely! YS General Contracting completed our vinyl flooring and tile along the hearth of the wood stove in our basement. We are now thoroughly enjoying our basement family room! Their attention to detail is very impressive. Trustworthy staff. We will hire them again to complete the mud room tiling. Thanks so much!

Outdoor improvements

Ted and his crew did an amazing job on our project! My wife and I are both pretty picky, so there was a fair bit of back and forth with him. He handled it very well and added some great input that helped make all our decisions easier. His crew was very polite, friendly and professional, especially with curious neighbours, which I appreciate. Even after completion, we have contacted him a few times with questions and small modifications that were handled quickly. We will definitely contact him for any future work, and will recommend him (them) to anyone!

Deck / Shed / Backyard transformation

YS General Contracting did a AMAZING job at my place. From start to finish. His team was friendly and got right down to business completing everything to perfection. Ted has a real talent for design and his work is fantastic. He took our backyard from the ordinary to a household resort.
Thanks Ted and team for everything!

New fence, deck and stairs

We are so happy with the work done by Ted and his crew. They were professional, respectful, and hard-working as well as being friendly and approachable. They took the time to answer all our questions and make suggestions when we needed them. The job was done faster than I had expected and on budget. The final product exceeded our expectations.
