Backyard Landscaping

We are very happy with the work completed by Tom and his team. We had a very plain and small backyard that we wanted converted into something more inviting and usable. Tom was helpful in terms of generating design ideas, and quickly provided us with a competitive estimate.

The pandemic threw a couple of challenges into the mix. It necessitated a delayed start date, and spark a materials shortage - both of which were obviously beyond TAG's control, but communication about these issues was prompt.

The materials shortage meant that the project needed to be completed into two stages. This meant that a couple of small details didn't quite align, but there was no hesitate to arrange a time for someone to come back and make the fixes.

All in all, working with TAG was a great experience and I don't hesitate to recommend them!

Front yard landscaping

Totally redid the front and side of the house - interlocking brick, raised garden beds, paved driveway, new lawn. The guys were meticulous in the construction of the brickwork, and consulted us regularly to get input on the finer points as they progressed. The end result looks great and I'm confident it will last.

Deck with hot tub

This is the second project I have done with Tom and The Anything Guys. I got a few quotes before going with them and their price was competitive versus the market. I went with them due to the good job on my first project. Tom was very easy to work with before committing to a plan an price. Unfortunately there were delays due to weather and lack of materials (crazy Covid summer, cedar wood was hard to come by). Once the project did start all the workers I dealt with were courteous and listened to all my requests. The main carpenter I worked with was Steve. If you want a good guy to with with request him. He fixed every little detail I asked him to and he was great at keeping me in the loop as the project went along. There was some damage to my driveway during the prep phase (the dozer was heavier than my brick driveway could take) and Tom got his people to fix it before finishing the project. Overall I was very satisfied with the outcome and company. I would have no problems using their services again.

Basement bathroom renovation.

I had a basement bathroom that had a washer and dryer in it when I moved in. I hired the Anything Guys to put a shower in the space where the washer and dryer was. This lead to reframing the walls, cutting a trench through the cement to run piping from the new shower pan underground to existing piping. Anew toilet, vanity, sink etc. We did the shower in 12 x 24 porcelain tiles and it looks great. The flooring was 24 x 24 vinyl interlocking flooring. What a fantastic difference. Drew did a fantastic job for us and was a pleasure to work with.

Deck, Pergola, Porches, Steps, Walkway

Choose TAG if you are seeking excellence with a reputable, reliable contractor. Collaboration, innovation, highly skilled and professional workmanship - this is what Tom and his TAG team will offer you. Tackling an aging backyard patio, a front entrance and walkway badly in need of repair, TAG transformed both areas with unique and clever styling, creating a stunning new look and feel that far exceeded my expectations. I can do nothing more than offer sincere thanks to Tom and his team for making dreams become a reality. Such a pleasure working with all of you.

Full Main Floor Renovation

Tom and his crew really knocked it out of the park for our main floor renovation. The scope of the project included removing two load bearing walls, and moving the kitchen to the dining room. Throughout the process Tom was upfront and very communicative about the changes, options, and how to proceed. The job was done on time, and his crew was very respectful. I would definitely recommend them and will have them do more work in my home.

Second Story Deck

TAG completed the reconstruction of second story deck, which included installing a sub-floor, membrane, and eavestrough to waterproof the porch below. After taking a look at the porch, TAG immediately understood what would be necessary and provided a detailed plan in the quote and contract. TAG looked after all subcontracting (dumpster and roofer). In spite of some understandable pandemic and weather-related delays, the job was completed by the end of the summer and I'm confident the deck will last for many years. Highly recommend TAG for a worry-free experience.

New Kitchen

I hired TAG after a decision of making a new kitchen. They did sketch of my future kitchen and at first time I loved it.
After sketch we made it in real life and now after 2 months I totally happy with that. Many thanks guys for extremely good job!

Great quality and nice people

My husband and I hired TAG for a multi-tiered renovation project. We had recently gotten rid of our above-ground pool in the back yard and wanted to install a new deck or a flagstone patio. We also wanted our old deck to be re-stained as well as have the earth by the side of our home angled away to help with a minor, seasonal flooding issue. Tom and his team worked with us to decide on the best approach for our budget and for the space itself. We were very impressed that Tom never tried to push us into a really expensive option or try to add on unnecessary work. Quite the opposite. He was very down to earth and although he laid out all of the possibilities, he advised us that some of the more expensive ones were probably not worth the extra money given our goals and that we would probably be just as happy with a mid-range estimate plans. He also took the time to explain all of the subsequent work and costs that each option would bring us in the future. (in terms of upkeep) The team was also very professional and were very considerate of our tenants and their safety during covid. My tenants had nothing but good things to say about them. The quality of their work is excellent and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. There were also some adjustments and add-ons that we wanted to make along the way and the team was very accommodating and quick to adapt. The work was finished in great time and was extremely well done. We will definitely be working with them again in the future and would have no problems recommending them to our friends. Thank you to the whole team!
