Your Reno Crew did an excellent job, not only on the new renovation, but also more importantly, correcting a previous attempt.
I purchased a home that was built in the 1970's and had been neglected for many years. The previous owner had done some work, wanting to legalize a basement suite. Looked like a waste of time and money, I wanted a renovation that would bring the house up to current standards in terms of both safety and design.
Some friends recommended Your Reno Crew. I met with Gary and Dave, who were very professional and knowledgeable. They asked a lot of questions to understand what I was looking for and after several visits, put together a detailed Scope of Work that addressed all of my concerns. They also confirmed my assumption that the wiring (copper to alum.) was improperly connected. Although the old wiring was still ok, it was decided to just re-wire to current code and load requirements as I was also reconfiguring the layout.
They prioritized the work and started with the roof, gutters and down pipes. They explained that it didn't make any sense renovating the interior until issues relating to the exterior and potential water ingress were addressed.
When they were satisfied the exterior of the house was secure, they commenced a complete interior demolition. They started by removing several walls to create an open concept design. With a central island and big screen, the room is great for entertaining.
The master and main bathrooms were completely reconfigured so that instead of a small two-piece master bathroom, I now have a large three-piece master bathroom, highlited by a 42” shower, and the main bathroom, although smaller, has a much-improved layout.
A previous owner had enclosed the deck that was off the old dining room and installed a hot tub underneath (also enclosed). There were many safety issues related to this addition including the fact that an enclosed hot tub can lead to mould and health issues. Trouble just waiting to happen.
Your Reno Crew designed a new layout for the basement that converted a formerly unusable space into a beautiful two-bedroom in-law suite. The old hot tub room is now a master bedroom with French Doors that lead onto a private deck. The tenants(first ones to occupy), have been here for 3 years and are not in a hurry to leave.They just love the suite and property.
The old upstairs addition is now my office, separated from the main room, also by French Doors. The guys also suggested that I build a laundry closet off the office so that there is no sharing of laundry facilities.
Back outside, the Crew demo’d and rebuilt a new, larger dual level deck for outdoor entertaining. Not only is there space for the barbeque, but also a gas fireplace.
Your Reno Crew completed the renovation with all new vinyl siding and landscaping. They even figured out how to move the existing garden shed that was in a poor location to the corner of the yard increasing the usable area in my back yard. Saving the garden shed also saved me money.
In summary, this was a $150,000 complete home makeover that proceeded smoothly on time and on budget.
I would not hesitate recommending Your Reno Crew to anyone thinking of completing a home renovation - big or small.
