Re-building a flooded basement

After waterproofing the walls we had to reframe the walls, rebuild the fireplace, replace the electrical, insulate, paint, fix windows, etc. We were given an end date and they beat it by 2 weeks. What I particularly liked was how they co-ordinated the trades in and out. A job well done.
Photos show the fireplace close to end of job.

Main floor renovation for first time home owners

My husband and I had never gone through a home renovation before, so we were intimidated by the process, and nervous after hearing about all the stress and horror stories from other people's experiences. We also had a unique situation as my husband is quite handy and wanted to do part of the renovation himself.
The renovation wasn't small as it included our whole main floor: new floors, ceiling, plumbing, electric, brand new kitchen, new stairs.
Bevan was friendly and welcoming from the get-go. He was supportive of our desire to do part of the reno and was also very helpful with finding ways we could save on costs, since our budget was tight. Throughout the process he was in touch on a regular basis and constantly in communication, giving us updates and taking time to explain things to us and talk through big decisions together. I always felt like he was available and there to work through any challenges that came our way.
We are so happy with how our main floor turned out - it's a completely different space from what we started with!
We'd recommend working with Bevan and his team!

Back Deck-Wonderful

These folks are wonderful. Bevan was not only polite and honest, but extremely attentive and responsive. His able crew were equally a pleasure to deal with. Delighted with our new back deck. I would heartily recommend Kangro to one and all.

Basement renovation on 100 yr old house

It started with a leaky drainpipe in the basement ceiling and ended with a life-changing renovation. Bevan was referred to us through our neighbourhood Facebook page, was the first to respond to our post and the first to quote on the project. We chose him because he was direct, thorough and patient in helping us define our vision for the project, explaining the process and the projected costs and being available for any questions.

Bevan and his team managed a complete overhaul of our basement during the pandemic, while we lived and worked upstairs 24/7. They were punctual, responsible, responsive, safe and completely professional. They took time to engage us in defining what we wanted down to the smallest detail, and did all of this on budget.

Bevan was masterful at keeping communications going well between homeowners, the crew, tradespeople and suppliers. He handled all of our questions effectively and with good humour and patience, which we appreciated a lot since this was our first reno project.

Bevan and his crew always went the extra mile to make us really happy instead of just satisfied. There were times when we stood in amazement at their artistry. Our basement was a complete disaster before Kangro came along and now it is a true sanctuary.

Would highly recommend and will be calling Kangro for future renovations and improvements.

Nursery build and ceiling repairs

We hired Bevan and his team to build a mini nursery within our master bedroom (and then added in a few extras like ceiling repair and bathroom repaint because we were already impressed!). Bevan met with us right away to work out a plan that would suit our needs and budget and the team got started quickly. Bevan was amazing to work with; very professional and took the time to really explain the process and figure out our interests. We were also really impressed with how present he remained for the duration of the project to ensure everything ran smoothly. Everyone who worked on the project was also fabulous. Special thanks to Brett, Seamus, Craig and Nick for their hard work. The room has some pretty tricky ceilings to work with and the team thought of every detail to make it special including a cool custom door (attaching a before photo and many after photos of the work). After having some bad experiences with contractors in the past, this experience provided us so much more peace-of-mind. Wouldn't hesitate to hire Kangro again! They will be our go-to team for sure.

Fence repair and gate installation

Bevan and his team were a pleasure to work with. Bevan always followed up with me for the timing of the work and even though it was a smallish job I felt I was treated as an important customer. I would highly recommend them for quality work and friendly and professional service.

Reno in the Beach

We were on the search for a company to take on fairly significant structural work - turning the main floor of our 100+ year old home in the Beach into open concept. The scope was quite extensive involving steel beams/posts, LVLs, new ceiling joists, a new footing in our basement and window lintels.

We selected Bevan to take on the work as he was incredibly thorough, knowledgeable and a great communicator from the get-go. As it turns out, his team was amazing too... every single of one of them. They knew our timeline was tight and pushed through our scope as planned, helping us collaboratively problem solve as challenges came up. Safety and cleanliness were also always top of mind for them, which we appreciated as that is a rare find.

Without a doubt, we would work with Bevan and his team again... and we intend to!

Bathroom and Kitchen Update

Thank you for the excellent work! The bathroom is stunning. Love the new cupboard doors and hardware. The quartz countertop is gorgeous. The new vanity is lovely and practical with tons of storage space. The kitchen has a fresh new look in white with new cupboard doors. Very happy with all of the workers who assisted with this job. Everyone was tidy, respectful and arrived on time. The jobs were organized to suit my schedule with minimal interruption in my home. Front hall closet also has new doors that were done to perfection. Thank you! Highly recommend this company.

Basement renovation

Bevan and his team were a pleasure to work with. This is our second time hiring Bevan to help us with a renovation project, and we won't hesitate to contact him again if we have any projects in the future. He is detail oriented and solutions oriented. He worked with us to keep the project within our budget, while ensuring it was done properly. Bevan is knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. He's a breath of fresh air in the world of contractors!

Bathroom, bedroom, kitchen renovation

Bevan and his team worked with us to renovate our home before we moved in. They worked through the challenges of renovating an older home and were able to give the place a much needed update. He had lots of creative solutions to make our small space feel big and beautiful. He was readily available by phone or email and kept us updated throughout the whole process with progress photos. He gave our kitchen a much needed face lift, updated all flooring, built a new powder room, and created a beautiful master bedroom.
We appreciated that he was cognizant of our budget and worked with us to stay within that. We would highly recommend him, and have already recommended him to family and friends that are planning renovations.
