1950s Post War Home Basement Reno

Our strangely configured little basement had been unused since we purchased our home 10 years ago. We decided we needed to clean it up and make it functional. I did the demo and set out to find a contractor to put it together. Niall was the only contractor who asked what our budget was and then opened up the conversation to what could be accomplished within that budget.

The work included framing, insulation of walls and ceiling, all new electrical, installing pot-lights, drywall, trim work and flooring installation. Additional work included relocating our water heater to the furnace room and building of two closets, one under the stairs and converting a cold room into a closet.

Niall, Billy and Steve were a pleasure to deal with. Smart, talented, punctual and personable. We are extremely pleased with the results and look forward to our next project with them.

Quality basement reno

We recently bought a home in Unionville with a beautiful and large basement, with a very dated bar and a non-functioning fireplace. We weren’t entirely sure how to make it work for us, but knew we needed warmth and a clean finish.

Quoting process
We contacted several places . Most didn’t return calls, or bail on the time we had set. Niall showed up quickly, did a quote and was very transparent around what to expect and who was accountable for what piece in the quote. (ie: we provided the fireplace, the fridge and sink). They made excellent proposals (that we had not yet considered) and we ended up going with them and made suggestions on how to best prepare the site to minimize dust

Start
The project started on time (in fact a few days earlier) and started with taping their main entry/traffic on our main floor with a thick barrier that I was able to both vacuum and Swiffer for the duration of the project. The demo was done in less then a day with very little dust and mess indoors.

Staff
Super friendly crew, very respectful of our privacy, our home and kiddies. They showed up when they said they would and after they started, they didn’t halt or pause until the job was finished (ie: no juggling of others/delays in ours).

Quality of work
All of them were clearly experienced carpenters and they made sure to make every effort to minimize cost and maximise our result. The bar has a beautiful 2 level quartz countertop and looks amazing.
When they finished the job (mudding/sanding) they vacuumed and moped the floors before leaving.

I’d highly recommend Niall and his crew to anyone looking for a beautiful project that requires experienced carpenters. They didn’t cut any corners and allowed us to fully enjoy our basement.

Home Renovation

Home Renovation is always stressful and very challenging. Luckily, Niall, Billy and his professional team of top of the line licensed electricians, plumbers, carpenters, HVAC installers took charge of the project and consistently demonstrated quality of craftsmanship and attention to every detail no matter how minimal they were from start to finish. Niall took care of our needs( from family members here and abroad), worked with the architect’s drawings and city inspector and exceeded safety and quality expectations from contract standards and specifications and managed to stay as much as possible within the budget. This massive project consisted of demolition,reconstruction, electrical, structural, flooring, painting was efficiently kept to a strict timeline. Thank you Niall, Billy and your incredible team. The end product of course speaks for itself.

Basement Reno

Niall and his team were hired to help us renovate our old, half-finished basement. The scope of work included framing, drywall, insulation of walls and ceiling, building closets under the stairs for storage, tiling of laundry area and trim work.
Niall and his team did an incredible job, and showed a lot of pride and attention to detail while staying within our budget. They even identified issues that we were not aware of (some bad, previous electrical work that was not up to code) and had that fixed.
We would not hesitate to use this company again, and have already recommended them to friends of ours.

New Deck & Fence

Niall & team replaced an old deck and fence at my property that was very much past due for an upgrade. They did quality work, on time, and as quoted, and were helpful in making sure the project went smoothly overall. A great upgrade to the backyard!

Fence

We had wood fencing in our backyard on both the left and right side, but the back portion was a chain link fence. We contacted Niall to see if we could place up a wood fence to match the sides. He was quick to explain everything he would be doing and made sure we understood the process. A couple of weeks later he came in and within two mornings the fence was up and looked great. Niall was also able to fix the bowing side fencing while he was at it.

Overall very happy with his communication and the work performed. Niall and his team were very professional and easy to speak with when I had questions. I would not hesitate to call Niall, not only fencing but for any work To be done in and around the home.

Full basement Reno with Waterproofing

This was the second project we worked with Niall and his team on after he added a bathroom to our main floor in September. We found extensive plumbing and water issues in our basement that we just had purchased. Plus the basement was old, dark and chopped into small rooms. So as a result we hired Niall and his team to demo, waterproof, and essentially put our entire basement back together with new everything. We created a new floor plan, relocated the bathroom and moved the laundry room from upstairs to downstairs. We knew and trusted Niall from experience on our first project that he would advise us through the process and rectify and address the issues as they arose. His team is friendly and very professional. After completion you can see it’s a beautiful end product. We already have passed Niall’s name to friends and would highly recommend him and his team for any project big or small.

New front steps and deck

We urgently needed new front steps after our old ones were damaged and not useable, and Niall came to our rescue. He and his crew are very busy but he found time to squeeze us in so we wouldn't be without stairs for months. He was so easy to work with every step of the way: he returned calls quickly, very direct, very knowledgeable (gave us great advice on what materials to use and how to ensure the rails were safe and to code), showed up when he said he would, finished the project within the time he promised. It's clear that he and his crew take pride in their work and the steps are so nice, really excellent quality. Last but not least, he saved us money by charging fair rates and not charging for some extras. Everyone, THIS IS THE GUY. Fast + excellent work + fair rates. I'm telling all the families in our neighbourhood about him.

True Pro! Basement Reno Rescue

Niall saved the day - and our basement! We had a terrible experience with a contractor that left a number of items either incomplete, a safety hazard or ruined.

Niall and his team came in, assessed the situation, were honest - it was going to require a lot of work to be re-done, but was compassionate to our situation and took on the job to make things right. We are very glad he did as he and his team did an outstanding job!

They corrected a botched bathroom job and made it look amazing while also adding full functionality to a low ceiling, old-Toronto basement - they dug down to all for a full stand-up shower that can be used comfortably by someone close to 7ft tall!

He made sure that all of the things behind the walls - electrical, plumbing, vents, insulation were done correctly. He made sure we took advantage of every square foot, including installing a back flow valve and giving access through a hidden door in the laundry room.

Overall, this was the kind of experience everyone should have with a contractor. Niall was upfront about price and schedule and met both - while going over and above on the scope of work and quality. We trusted Niall to work at our house while we were temporarily relocated and he took great care of our place. He is a contractor that has a lot of pride in his work, employs very good people, communicates well and does what he says he's going to do.

We feel very fortunate to have been referred to Niall through a friend who had a similarly great experience. He'll be at the top of our list for our next project - we just hope he's not booked up too far in advance (as all the good ones normally are!).
