Norseman Construction came highly recommended with the stamp of approval from Mike Holmes. We reached out to Norseman after a horrendous experience with our previous contractors who gutted and then left our newly purchased home uninhabitable (and took 70% of our money while only completing 5% of the work) Thankfully, Norseman’s owner, Kris, responded to our plea for help. His sincere appreciation for the nightmare we were left in was apparent and heartfelt. His vast knowledge, expertise and professional candor was coupled with his respect for our home since his first correspondence and his extensive walkthrough. Kris provided us with a detailed contract, outlining timelines, scope of work, expectations, cost, warranty and indicated that payments are to be made upon project milestones being achieved. This was very reassuring to us, given our previous experience. NC used a platform called Buildertrend, which ensured a fluid correspondence amongst the various trades on site with client, as well as step by step photos of our project, daily updates, invoices and payments, mitigating any surprises. They professionally addressed any issues or suggestions that arose and provided us with sound and ample advice and options.
The renovation scope consisted of 2 floors beginning with major structural work to our 116 yr old home, extensive plumbing and electrical, removing load bearing walls, framing, spray foam, drywall, paint, hardwood floors and new windows. Based on our drawings, NC created a new open concept main floor, kitchen, family and dining area, 3 bathrooms: a new elegant powder room, new 2nd floor bathroom with a shower, and converted an existing bedroom into a stunning wet bathroom with heated floors and walk-in closet, as well as relocation of our washer/dryer. NC transformed our gutted house into a gorgeous home. The exquisite custom carpentry, exposed brick and stained glass, maintained the original features of our home while also achieving a balance of modern design.
It is with absolute certainty that we recommend Norseman Construction. You will be in great hands irrespective of who project-manages your home, as they are all respectful, knowledgeable and debrief amongst each other daily. The Norseman team is honourable and prides itself on their workmanship while being client focused and striving for a positive experience throughout the duration of the project. They have the depth and expertise on all levels to be entrusted with any scope of work. It is with sincere gratitude that we thank Kris, Kevin and Robbie for their extensive work, care and diligence on building us a beautiful and safe home for our family. Thank you! We couldn't be more in LOVE with our home!
