Wall and popcorn ceiling removal

Burt and his team did an amazing job removing the wall between our kitchen and living room. They made sure the beams were placed correctly and safely. They removed the popcorn ceiling and installed the drywall ready for paint. All this was done in record time and very efficiently! I am so happy Burt was reccomended to me. Their work exceeded our expectations!

Beam Installation, joist redesign and Concrete Work

I was recommended this company through a mutual contact and I couldn't have been happier with the professional service Bert and his team provided. I would highly recommend them for any structural contracting jobs.

Load bearing wall removal and demolition

We were referred to Bert by our structural engineer to remove a load-bearing wall in our home. Our first encounter when meeting with Bert was that he was very knowledgeable and reassuring that the job would be done correctly. His price was competitive and he completed the job on time. His crew which consisted of Adam, Justin, and Sam were respectful, hard working, and friendly. The team worked efficiently and effectively together. Bert has been very helpful in guiding us to complete other aspects of our projects. Thank you so much Bert for everything you and your team have provided. Your recommendations have made our renovations go smoothly.

Load bearing wall removal

We were starting a basement remodel and needed to have 2 load bearing walls taken down. Bert's team was available to do the job when we needed it done and at a reasonable price.
Bert was a great project manager and he had a great team of guys that worked hard for 3+ days. Although there were some unexpected issues that came up, they were resolved quickly, and the job was still completed on time and on budget.
Our opened up basement looks great and we're looking forward to getting it finished.

Wall Removal

I hired Bert and his team after moving to a new home in Toronto. I wanted to open up the main floor but was unsure if it was possible. I was happy to learn that Bert could remove one of our load bearing walls to open up the space. He was quick and courteous. 10/10 all around!

Bathroom renovations

Bert did an amazing job removing a load bearing wall so we decided to hire him again to renovate our main bathroom and ensuite bathroom. They both needed to be completely remodeled.
Bert and his crew show up early every morning, they work very hard and get slot accomplished every day. His crew are respectful of our home.
Bert's experience was amazing, as always with any reno there were a few surprises once the new tub and vanity were to be installed. Bert was able to quickly figure out how to work around it and make
it all happen as planned.
They did an amazing job and were finished both bathrooms in under 2 weeks.
We now have 2 amazing bathrooms that look like they are from a spa.
I would definitely recommend this company.

Flush beam installation, replace popcorn ceiling, install potlights

After removing one wall 3 years ago with Bert, we decided to pursue another load bearing wall removal. We were confident Bert could do it properly and efficiently. Bert quickly came to look at the job and suggested that we go with a flush-beam. While it was a little bit more money, my wife and I agreed with him that the flush beam would be the best choice. Since we were opening the wall we also decided to remove the old popcorn ceiling and do flat ceiling with potlights.

Bert and his crew arrived promptly each day. Bert was also accommodating when we asked about taking down another ceiling in the family room. It was no problem for him. Electrical was handled by Rudy who did a great job to fix up messy work done by a previous contractor who installed the kitchen.

The ceiling removal and mudding & taping is a really messy job. Nothing can be done about that. However, we did it at the right time since the wall was being done, plus we had removed our flooring to install new hardwood. It was really worth it though as the ceilings look amazing. It's very nice having good lighting in each of those rooms now, and the ceilings were finished flawlessly.

One minor issue came up in regards to the potlight color that was initially installed, but Bert and his electrician kindly accommodated our request to change them.

Since we were doing other projects such as refinishing stairs, flooring, fireplace surround, breakfast bar/cabinetry, and tiling of foyer, Bert kindly provided his wisdom and experience by answering a number of my questions and offering suggestions on how best to finish each of those areas.

Bert operates a great business, trustworthy, priced well and most importantly done right.

Kitchen Renovation, including partial removal of load bearing wall

We just had our kitchen renovated with Cando Renovations, and couldn't be happier. Right from the initial contact we felt Bert was very trustworthy and knowledgeable, and very helpful in pointing out different aspects of the project. He has been in this business for many, many years, and was able to give us excellent advice, thus reducing our expenses.
We initially requested a quote on the partial removal of a load-bearing wall between our kitchen and sunken living room. Bert was able to show us the best way to go about our renovation and we decided to let Cando take care of the complete project. Bert and his crew removed our old
kitchen and the bulkheads, partially removed a load-bearing wall, and installed a new opening to the sunken living room. As the wall was removed, Bert discovered some faulty duct work, and corrected the builders' mistakes from over 30 years ago! He took care of all electrical, including installation of potlights, undermount lighting and pendants over the island. He relocated and took care of all plumbing, installed drywall and trim as needed and installed exhaust fan and appliances. He also installed our backsplash.
Throughout the renovation Bert was always very prompt in responding to texts, calls or emails. Our kitchen looks very nice, and has turned out
very functional. Thank you so much, Bert! Please, don't retire before we do our laundry room! Also thanks to Adam, who was always cheerful,
professional and polite, and to Justin and Rudy, the electrician.
