Major Home Reno

James completed an ensuite reno for me at my old house and did a fantastic job, so when I moved, I called him again. This time it was a major reno - whole basement reno with new basement suite, new flooring, new master bedroom and ensuite, new paint and doors throughout. James did not disappoint. The results are amazing. His crew is professional, thorough and caring. There were a lot of hiccups because the house was old and had a lot of issues including mould and fire hazards. It was starting to look like a money pit but James took care of all of it. I felt completely confident that the job would get done properly. The only real work I had to do was choose materials and colours. James and his crew did everything else. And the level of care carried through to the very last touch up. I highly recommend him and will definitely be hiring him again.

Bathroom Renovation

I hired J Murphy's Contracting to complete a bathroom renovation for me. James and his crew were very professional and hardworking. James had great communication with me and my husband through the whole process and was extremely professional. All the workers were respectful and understanding especially during this time. I would recommend J Murphy's Contracting.

Bathroom renovation

We hired James to do a major renovation of our master bathroom in August 2019. The current bathroom was small and dated, and generally inadequate for our family so we wanted to enlarge it and relocate all the plumbing fixtures. It was a total redo.

We're quite happy with the end result. It's still not a very big bathroom, but the space is well utilized and the bathroom is clean, modern and functional.

As for our experiences with James and his crew:

- quality work
- crew kept the mess to a minimum
- James gave us access to his substantial discount at local suppliers
- the job took about as long as expected, without any major delays
- some disagreements about what constitutes extra work

Although there were some tense communications near the end, looking back it's water under the bridge. The end result is good, and that's what we'll remember.

Landscaping and Back Deck Renovations

With two boys who are finally old enough to not want to destroy every shred of grass, deck and fence in sight, we decided that it was time to make our backyard into a space that my husband and I can enjoy now. Having virtually no experience in design or landscaping, we relied heavily on James' expertise and that was the best decision we made. We could tell that he really loved working on the landscaping piece (he really knows his plants!) and he came up with some great solutions for us around how to structure the new deck and stairs. He kept us on track, on budget and when he said ‘my guys will be there’, they were…every time.

Now, when I look out onto our backyard I am no longer silently sobbing into my coffee mug at the sight of a child-created war zone - I am crying tears of joy.

(No photos yet as we are STILL waiting for all of our new patio furniture to arrive…a month later than quoted but we will upload them when it’s all done. James - maybe you should get into the patio furniture business too?!)

Bathroom renovations

Recommended by neighbours, we turned the renovation of three bathrooms over to James and his very capable crew. Our project is ongoing but we are very pleased with the quality of the workmanship to date. Also, minor problems have been dealt with professionally and quickly.

Bathroom reno

We wanted to update our bathroom by removing the bathe and replacing it with a shower. you don't realize how much goes into the whole process but the results speak for themselves. We are so glad we chose James to do our reno, hard working professional who knows this business like the back of his hand. Forget all these other contractors who give you empty promises. J Murphys are the ones to trust we totally recommend them.

Bathroom

I am very very happy with the work James and his crew did on my bathroom. They were punctual, skilled and left the job site very clean. The work done was worth every dollar and the bathroom is more than what I expected. What a professional company and the final payment was close to the estimate.

Master Bath

We hired J Murphy Contracting to completely renovate our master bathroom. James was honest and easy to communicate with. Over the course of the reno, his guys were always on time, professional and responsive to questions or concerns. They took great care to clean up the work area and always put out drop cloths to reduce the impact of reno work. We had a couple of small issues that came up with the plumbing, but the issue was quickly resolved. We sourced out and provided all of our own fixtures, tile, vanity. We are very pleased with the our new beautiful bathroom. Yes we recommend J Murphy’s and would use them again in the future if we have another project.

Bathroom Renovations

We recently had 3 bathrooms renovated in our Townhouse by James and his crew. We were very impressed with every ones professional, curtious and knwoledge of what our renovations required and from time to time they were more than willing to give us help advise when trying to make an important decisions that need to be made and we were struggling on which direction we should go. James was on budget and on time, all of that hard work and help by James, Darren, Mike and the crews that worked along with them has paid off as we now have 3 bathroom that look incredible. We would highly recommend James and his Crew to anyone who is looking for a responsible, reliable and hard working team to anyone looking to do a renovation.
