Mysterious Leak

Once again Andrei and his SOSNA crew improved our house and our lives. They have created new rooms for us in the past, this time they repaired some faulty original construction, that has caused leaks in our kitchen ceiling over the past 25 years.

The obvious cause of a water stained kitchen ceiling would be a leak from outside. We have had our extended kitchen roof repaired three or four times - but every few years the water stains were back. Andrei’s keen eye suspected a different problem. First he had us hire a heat-escaping engineer/photographer who confirmed Andrei’s suspicion. The original builder had not insulated the metal beam that supported the second floor where our kitchen extension roof ends. This allowed the beam to get very cold in bad winters and cause condensation to drip onto our kitchen ceiling.

His polite and efficient crew came in one morning, covered the floor from the front door through to our kitchen and draped sheer plastic sheets along the working corridor. At night when the work was done for the day, we would lift and tape up the plastic sheets to make doorways to our kitchen cabinets and family room. The main floor looked a sultan’s tent.

One thing that was up in the air was whether or not we would have to paint the kitchen ceiling where the drywall was removed to install spray-in insulation foam, or if Leo, our congenial site foreman, could match the paint to the rest of the kitchen ceiling saving us from having to paint the whole of the main floor ceiling.

Leo matched it and Andrei happily lowered the estimate. How unusual for a contractor to lower costs after their work. But it is not surprising if you deal with an honest contractor like SOSNA.

Andrei, to you and your crew - thank you again. We look forward to working with you on more of our home improvement projects.

Home renovation

I just have to write to say how pleased I am with your services, which you already know :). We have known each other for about seven years now and each and every time I have spoken or emailed about anything to anyone I have dealt with, it has always been the most pleasant of experiences. As recently as yesterday, Vitaly was here to do some small adjustments/touch ups and, of course, he's as pleasant as ever, and did a great job.

Both Brian and I feel very lucky that we found you when we were looking to do our first renovation.

A huge thank you to you and your team, which with your leadership, has just over and over again proven excellence.

Kitchen Renovation

Thank you for sending Boris today to fix the caulking in the kitchen. He came immediately. The training your workers have is exceptional. They are professional, courteous and personable. It was like greeting an old friend when he came today!
As I have said before, it is a pleasure dealing with your company. You stand behind your work. If there is something to be fixed, it is attended to rapidly and with care and proficiency. It makes us as customers feel we spent our money wisely when we chose your company to do our renovations.
Thank you!

Take care,
Sheila

Mississauga Open Concept Main Floor

We were introduced to Sonsa by a close friend, who had just finished his Toronto townhouse renovation. We had just bought a house in Mississauga that had the original floor-plan - completely separate living room, dining room, kitchen, and the smallest powder room ever built.

Our designer Anna was great to work with, as she has a similar aesthetic as us, and knew how to execute the bold and modern design elements we were looking for.

The most impressive and unique part of the renovation was how they reconfigured the front entry to make the power room larger. They switched the front door and the sidelight, and built the sidelight into the bathroom as a window, which almost doubled the square footage of the bathroom.

We're really happy with how everything turned out, and can't wait to have them back for future projects!

Main Floor Reno

Sosna delivered on all fronts, project was done on time, the crew was great, kept the place as neat and tidy as can be. Anna, the designer was very helpful in guiding us on choosing the right design. Our 30 year old house has been given a modern updated transformation. Very happy with the end results.

Bathroom Renovation

After extensive research, I hired Sosna Inc to renovate my second floor bathrooms and walk-in closet. Due to the fact that I have a very tight timeline, I need to find a company who is not only excellent in workmanship, but also with a good track record of sticking to the schedules. Now that the project has completed, I am thrilled to say that Sosna Inc delivered everything that I have expected and more!

During the very first meeting with Andrei, I was impressed that he listened to our pain points and advised us to REALLY focus on what we actually need with the limited space we have.

During the design phase, our designer Olga really showed her commitment and dedication to making sure we have a functional layout, and that every inch of our limited space is made to good use. This is the first time that I have ever used a designer, and the modified layout is so clever that I could never thought about that myself. This alone is already worth every penny. Olga made numerous trips to my house to discuss all the plans and finishes down to the very last details, including the color of the grout, so we know there will be no surprise as everything is on the drawing.

Our project lead Victor is a gem. He is on site every day from 7:00 am. He is courteous, organized, and keeps the site clean before he leaves for the day. On rare occasion that he needed to be late, he always let me know in advance, so that I am prepared. I really appreciate it as this shows he really respect people's time. My family and I live in the house during the renovation, but we don't feel stressed, because firstly the dust is kept at minimal, secondly, we could see progress every day.

Roman the project manager came to my house every Thursday morning to check on the progress and to collect my feedback. All other trades used by Sosna are all very polite and very efficient.

Thanks to Sosna Inc, our family now have two beautiful bathrooms, and one roomy closet to enjoy for many years to come. Thank you Sosna Inc for making our dream come true!

Downtown Toronto Townhouse Reno

We were referred to Andrei and his team through a friend who had already worked with Sosna. From the first contact, Andrei was very informative and took the time to understand what we wanted to change and why. We needed to remove a non-load bearing wall to create one larger room from 2 smaller rooms, remove an existing closet, build a new custom closet, install new flooring and completely redo a full bathroom and a half bathroom.

While the quote was a bit higher than the others we got, the planning process Sosna uses to stay on time and on budget, as well as their quality materials/workmanship made our decision easy. We had the pleasure of working with Olena on the design, she made multiple trips downtown to accommodate seeing us in person and talk about options. She also brought samples of materials for us to see and suggested stores for us to check out when looking for certain items. The drawings she created were really helpful and we planned things out.

Once the design was complete, we were very pleased to meet and work with Viktor who was on-site on a daily basis. Viktor's work is very clean and precise, he definitely takes pride in what he does and it shows. We were away from home for much of the work but felt very comfortable leaving our place in Viktor's capable hands.

We were very pleased with the results of the work, Sosna stayed on budget and actually completed the job a week early! There were no hidden costs and when we did want something extra done, the process to add a change request was very easy. As with any project, some things don't go exactly according to plan but the Sosna team helps to find good solutions and puts the customer first. We've been out of town quite a bit since the work was finished but will be taking our 'after' pictures this summer to add to this review.

Thanks again to the Sosna team for their effort and great work!

Bathrooms Renovation

We hired Sosna for two ensuite washrooms remodeling project. It involved removing some existing walls and relocating a walk-in closet. We chose Sosna for their strong technical knowledge and well-established project management process. We are very satisfied with this reno and love the project outcomes.
Sosna listened every thought and requirement of us. The sample material and product pictures were brought to our home for review. This saved us many trips and lots of time. During the construction, nearby furniture and floor were well protected. Every day, the team cleaned the site before leaving. The completed job was of high quality.
During the project, the team discovered an electrical safety issue left from previous reno. The existing hot tub was not protected by a GFCI breaker. They handled this situation professionally by installing an additional outside electrical box with GFCI breaker. And they didn’t charge extra for this change.
Thank you so much! I am very proud to have a good contractor for our project.

Ground Level Flooring Complete Redo

Big thanks to Andrei and his amazing team to come rescue our house and bring joy back to our family after our disastrous renovation a year and half ago.
We have our first floor hard wood flooring replaced by an unaccredited contractor and it ended up crooked and unlevel. He blamed on the quality of the hard wood. We trusted him and gave him a second chance and repurchased new tiles for him to replace all the hard wood. After a few months the tiles became loose and no longer stuck to the cement underneath. He had no idea what went wrong and once again claimed the tires caused the failure. We were completely devastated and didn't know what else to do.
Luckily we finally found SOSNA Inc. online which have exceptional reviews on multiple home reno/interior design sites. Andrei is one true professional who is highly knowledgeable and experienced and explained to us in details what could be the issues and provided recommendations to us. We were particularly impressed with all the pre-work planning and meeting arrangements and the plastic protection that was put up to shield out all dust from the second floor we were still using daily. Work was done very efficiently and the team always keep the first floor neat and clean after work each day. Victor the site manager kept us well informed on the progress and was attentive to our questions.
The job was finished well ahead of the promised time. Andrei met with us once again for a final review to ensure complete satisfaction. We finally have our peace of mind back knowing that our first floor flooring is back to a great shape and we will be able to enjoy it for many years that follow. Lesson learned: Trust only professionals like SOSNA Inc.

Kitchen and first floor renovation

Another superb job by Sosna Inc.!

We hired Sosna to renovate our second floor including new hardwood flooring and both guest and master bedroom bathrooms. We were so thrilled with the outcome that we hired Sosna once again to do a complete renovation of our first floor. This included a new kitchen, flooring, powder room, laundry room and a makeover of our dated family room fireplace.

Andrei is an excellent listener and is able to capture client requirements very well. His project management skills shine thru from gathering requirements, to planning and design, construction and after completion follow-up. His problem solving skills are excellent and if an issue came up he would respond quickly and always resolve it to our satisfaction.

The whole Sosna team is very diligent, hard working, and provide excellent craftsmanship and quality finished work. Olga, the Sosna designer was invaluable in providing options for the design of our new kitchen. Olga’s knowledge, advice, and suggestions were
truly outstanding. It was a tremendous pleasure working with her for the second time.

Roman, the project manager for our renovation was always accessible and quick to respond if we needed to discuss anything. Vitaliy always arrived on time every day. His quality of work, work ethic and meticulous clean up every night was greatly appreciated.

Sosna provides top quality work, on time and on budget. I would highly recommend Andrei and his team to anyone wanting a home renovation.
