Bathroom update and porch makeover

We hired the team from Gala Renovations to take on two more projects in our house. Previously, Scott and his team renovated our kitchen. We were so pleased with the quality of work that we asked them to come back and update our bathroom and front porch. Scott quoted the work in detail and stayed true to his quote!

The team did an excellent job converting our dusty, old enclosed front porch into a clean, fresh, modern mudroom, complete with oodles of storage! From concept through to the selection of cabinet pulls, Scott was us every step of the way. His years of experience renovating Toronto homes came in very handy, dealing with the inevitable issues that pop up when updating a 100-year-old home.

Our basement bathroom had suffered the wear and tear of two teenaged boys and needed some freshening up. When we realized part-way through the renovation that the planned flooring approach wouldn’t give us the result we wanted, Scott provided options and helped facilitate the change in direction. The change involved sourcing new materials and getting tradespeople to do additional work. Scott accommodated the change with a smile on his face and even managed to stick pretty close to the original timeline.

A big shout out to Duke, who was on-site almost every day and made sure that the work didn’t disrupt our daily lives (and our dog loved the daily belly rubs!) He was a pleasure to have in our home for the duration of the work.

We are so pleased with our new bathroom and mudroom! Scott will be my first call when the next project pops up.

Kitchen and bathroom renovation

We hired Gala previously to replace the kitchen in our last house (now sold). Our family expanded and we had to move to a larger place, so we hired them again to replace the kitchen and build a small bathroom on the main floor.

As per usual, the service you get is amazing. There is nothing they can't or won't do. When installing a fan for our bathroom they noticed there was no insulation in the roof, so it was "do you want us to insulate it"? and then drywall came down, insulation went up, new drywall and painting, and it was like they were never there (except the room is much warmer now).

We changed the plans a number of times with no notice to them. They had no problems with that, adapted to our changes and the result was the usual Gala perfection.

Scott and his crew are amazing to work with. They are the friendliest contractors I have ever had in my house. Polite, no nonsense people who produce a high quality, top shelf product for a very reasonable price.

This is now the second time we have used them and we would use them again if we needed to. Another job very well done.

Condo Kitchen Renovation

Scott made our condo kitchen look like a home kitchen! He was very easy to work with and did a great job with our kitchen. He was always available for a chat and worked with our budget. Highly recommend Gala for any Reno work.

Basement, bathroom and hall renovation

Gala Renovations completely renovated our basement after it was stripped to bare walls and floor to remediate a mould problem.
The principal and his crew carefully and precisely implemented our plan to prevent future mould growth.
They worked steadily to completely refinish the basement, including a bathroom, laundry room, office and recreation area.
Their extensive knowledge of building technology was always in evidence. So was their willingness to consider all solutions to problems presented by the site.
Just as important for us was the contractor's professionalism, and his responsiveness to all issues as they arose.
It was a pleasure to work with him.
The quality of the work in our renewed space is excellent. At the end of the project we are completely satisfied with the work, the results and our choice of contractor.
We recommend Gala Renovations without reservation and, already, friends and family are working with Gala on their own projects.

1st floor renovation (kitchen, flooring, ceilings, trim, paint)

Scott and his team did an excellent job on our home. The communication was very good, as was their attention to detail. They were very professional and followed all safety protocols. We are so happy with the final result and would recommend Gala to anyone looking to renovate their home.

Kitchen & Main Floor Renovation

Scott and his team have been excellent to work with throughout the entire renovation process. As new homeowners without experience in similar projects, we really appreciated how available Scott was for questions, feedback, and idea generation. He brought some creative ideas to the project which helped us land on the perfect kitchen for our home.
We had great interaction with all of the tradespeople, and felt comfortable with everyone's adherence to COVID-related requests. We appreciated the ability to get to the showroom of the custom cabinetmaker and work through options for our design. The level of customization available and the ability to fit it perfectly to our space really made the difference vs. an Ikea kitchen or similar.
Again, I can't say enough about the timeliness and openness of Scott's responses, and the project was completed on schedule despite COVID challenges. Overall, cannot recommend Gala team more highly.

Main floor renovation

We recently completed a main floor renovation with Gala and could not be happier. We contracted Gala to remove a supporting wall, install new flooring throughout, renovate a kitchen and laundry room, install new lighting, refinish the ceilings, and refinish the stairs. Everything looks beautiful! I knew from the moment I met Scott that he was the person for the job. Scott’s calm, patient, thoughtful demeanor throughout the project was much appreciated, especially under the circumstances. We delayed our project for nearly a year due to Covid and Scott was so accommodating until we felt ready to proceed. He helped us navigate through all phases of the project, from the budget, getting the necessary professionals in to assess the scope of work, securing permits, choosing finishes, etc. He was always ready to answer our questions along the way. Scott, along with his crew, Greg, Rosendo, and James, have excellent workmanship and attention to detail. Scott made sure the project moved along with no delays in scheduling or waiting on tradespeople, which we appreciated. He was also very helpful with sourcing materials for the finishes and keeping us on track with our decision making. I would recommend Gala Renovations without hesitation and look forward to working with Gala again on the 2nd floor phase of our home improvements!

Awesome kitchen reno

Scott and crew did an amazing job on our old dated kitchen. He was a great communicator through the whole project and solved a couple of unexpected problems with no issue. We will definitely think of Gala Renovations for future projects and recommend them for anyone looking for a quality, all-in-one renovation solution.
