Soundproofing

Bevan and his guys were great. The work was on time and on budget (which is the most important), as well they were pleasant to have around and super easy to deal with. I will definitely be hiring them again for other work in our home.

Drywall taping and mudding in basement

Bevan gave me a reasonable price to do the drywall mudding in my basement, and overall he was easy to work with, communicated well, and his team did a quality job. They took extra effort to correct some issues on parts of the wall that were outside of their scope, it really seemed that they were trying to do a quality job that I would be happy with. The only issue I had is that they didn't protect the concrete floor from mud drips, but they did clean it up later and then used plastic. I should have asked them to use plastic in the beginning. Overall, they were accommodating of my requests, communicated well throughout the job, and they did a very good job of the drywall, it is a nice smooth finish. I will be asking them to quote my next job for sure.

Basement Renovation

Thank you Sam, Bevan and team for turning what was a damp, dark, moldy basement into a bright, clean livable space.

While the project evolved into much more than initially planned, Sam and Bevan communicated the issues and provided us with multiple solutions, all the while being mindful of our budget. We very much enjoyed working with the guys at Kangro, and would recommend them to family and friends.

Deck

Bevan and his team were great. They provided us with what we wanted. Much of the work was done quickly (they started when they said they could start) and the workmanship was excellent. There was some back and forth with a supplier which delayed completion however. Bevan went out of his way to ameliorate our concerns and completed a few extras without charging us.

Retrofit plus remodel

My husband and I had a horrific Fall of 2015. Our simple bathroom remodel and the creation of a new baby's room resulted in the discovery of mold and structural damages in our century old Toronto home on all three levels. Our initial contractor was not up for the job as the structural retrofit was complicated and we were on a tight timeline (with baby due mid Feb) and budget. Kangro contracting was recommended to us after numerous other companies couldn't start our project until mid January and were quoting us that it could take upwards of 3 months to complete!

Bevan and his team started at the end of December and completed the job in 6 weeks. Their work was nothing short of remarkable! Bevan employs smart, creative and skilled tradesmen who have given us back our home, made it safe, were personable and reliable. Bevan is an excellent communicator and kept us in the loop at all stages of the project. Even when unforeseen challenges emerged (as they always do), Bevan always had numerous solutions for us to consider. He has an excellent eye for detail and efficiently manages his team as well as working with our other professionals such as our structural engineer, door installer, roofer etc.

I have no doubt that any project, big or small, can be tackled by Kangro and you will not be dissatisfied if you work with them too!

bathroom,laundry room, mudroom, foundation, drywall, plumbing, electrical, tile - everything!!!!!

“Dear Bevan – thank you SO MUCH for your professionalism, your attention to detail, your precision, your technical abilities and your amazing communication skills! – even when it was late in the day, and you had so much on your plate, you took the time to provide explanations and reassurance. You are the "complete package"....and in addition you are kind, committed and an absolute pleasure! As a Mom, you can't know how much peace of mind you have given Brad and I, not only "making new” an absolute disaster at Erin and Doug's house ( make that multiple disasters!), but you did it with kindness and excellence. I hope that you take great pride in your work – because it is well deserved! Thank you to you and your team so much !!!! sincerely,

janet ( Erin's Mom)""

Basement Project

I own a triplex in the downtown Toronto area and needed to get some sounds proofing done between the floors. Bevan and his team got the job done promptly and professionally. They demo'd, insulated, dry walled, mudded and sanded the ceilings in the basement as well as got everything up to code. I've since hired Kangro to attack other projects at my rental property and plan on using them as my main contracting company in the future. I would recommend them to any home owner in Toronto.

Backyard Deck and Fencing

Bevan completed a backyard deck and fencing project for me in the SummerHill area of Toronto. Bevan is extremely professional. He came up with a very reasonable quote and had some great ideas for the project. His workmanship and attention to detail is outstanding. He is punctual and kept the worksite always clean. He was easy to contact and always kept me updated. I would highly recommend him for a fencing project.

Garage Loft Storage

Bevan and his team built us a garage loft storage unit. We had a lot of overhead space in our garage and decided to utilize it for storage. Bevan listened to everything we were looking for and provided expert recommendations. It took them less time than anticipated and the result was even more than we hoped for. Thank you, Bevan!
