Grand Building and Contracting Ltd., was truly a god-sent to me. I have been planning on completing a complete home renovation/gut job and after speaking with multiple companies and contractors that sought $500,000+ to complete my home renovations, I quickly began to feel that a home renovation would not be in my future, period. I called Grand Building and Contracting Ltd., on a whim and had the pleasure to meet Jason and Alex first.
My home was originally built in 1919, with two additions made in the later years. My house was a challenge. One that Grand Building and Contracting Ltd., worked miracles on. They turned a decaying home into a beautiful piece of work and created the dream home I have been praying for. To put things into context, I embarked on a complete gut job of my semidetached homes in York, Ontario. The house had no installation, windows where the cold air entered freely, floors that cracked with each step I walked on them, etc. The house needed a BIG upgrade.
I want to be clear; I don’t trust contractors and have a difficult time believe what they have to say. My family has had many negative experiences with contractors in the past. So, when I agreed to proceed with Grand Building and Contracting Ltd., I did so with much caution, especially when my project was $100,000+. I am not a trusting individual; boarding on distrust when it comes to trusting people I do not know. Working with Adam, Jason, and Alex, I never felt I was not being heard or that my concerns were not important. They took the time to explain everything. They took the time to ensure I knew what I was getting into.
Although I did work with Jason and Alex, most of my day-to-day interactions about my project were with Adam. All three, from beginning to the end of the project were respectful and did take the time to listen to me. What I most appreciated about Adam was the time he took to inform me of any project changes and/or improvements. If I ever had a question, Adam spent the time explaining the process. When I requested a change to the project, I was given all the information I needed to make an informed decision. Never did I feel I was being forced to make a decision I didn’t want or accept an outcome I didn’t want. In the end, Adam found efficiencies and was able to stretch my funds in ways that provided unexpected improvements to my home.
I have never worked with a company that went beyond the contract and made an effort to add improvements into the project, while staying within budget. I most appreciated the team’s ability to stay within budget. I needed this project to stay within budget. I could not afford any last-minute changes in figures. Adam did a great job in pricing everything and stayed well under this pricing.
My home looks amazing. Better than my expectations. Trust me, if you are looking to work with three individuals who have passion about their work and do go the extra mile to make you happy, then I highly recommend Grand Building and Contracting Ltd. I have informed Adam that he is always more than welcome to showcase my home to anyone thinking of completing a large home renovation and wants to see the before and after in real life. I am very proud of their work and highly recommend Grand Building and Contracting Ltd., to all those who will listen.
