Four Season Complete Suite Renovation

Robert and Helen were key in the project management and site supervision of this project. This project consisted of extremely high end finishes and involved a significant amount of coordination between trades, designer and management team. As team Robert and Helen manage to cover all details and go above and beyond to make the project successful and insure the end client is satisfied.

Patching and Painting Kitchen, Hallway, Family room and front portico

Helen and Robert DePonte are excellent General Contractors who use skilled craftsmen with attention to detail. The painters did excellent work, and colour matched my Farrow and Ball colours exactly; Helen and Robert were on site several times daily, made sure I was happy with the work as it progressed, and at the end of each day inspected all of the work, and at the end of the job. They are honest, and charge a fair price for well executed work. They are totally trustworthy, congenial and a joy to know!

Main floor Modernization of 1953 Bungalow (Kitchen, Living area)

If you are looking to welcome honest and caring contractors into your home to complete improvements, look no further. Where Rob and Helen excelled: their attention to detail and forward planning, "When this step is complete, how would you like to blend it into the rest of your home?"; their client service and flexibility, "Is this okay? Do you like this?"; and their problem solving ability "This appliance will protrude slightly, here are some options for that."   

Rob and Helen modernized the main floor of our 1953 brick bungalow and completed the following:  restoration and matching of original hardwood floors, planning and layout for open concept kitchen, demolition, framing, insulation, counters, cabinets, lighting and electrical, painting, appliances, tiling, parallel coordination of gas line, central heat, and air conditioning.

 The De Ponte's initial quote and assessment was true to scope and budget. If you're seeking quotes, place a De Ponte Construction quote next to any other provider and I think you'll be likely to find that your more inexpensive quotes are missing steps in the project plan and the more expensive quotes have created too much budget space and missed opportunities for project efficiency and cost savings.  Thank you again Rob and Helen!

Basement Bathroom and Kitchen

When we developed a problem with our basement bathroom that required a complete remodelling, we immediately thought of contacting De Ponte Construction and are very happy that we did. We’d already had the opportunity to view a couple of projects completed by the De Pontes, in our own neighbourhood, which had left a lasting impression on us.

At first we were nervous, considering the fact that two of us would be working full-time from home due to the COVID pandemic, but after meeting with Robert and Helen to review our budget and discuss their proposal, we realized just how much effort they put into managing and supervising their typical renovation projects and we were immediately put at ease. In the meantime they listened carefully to our ideas, clarified our needs, then suggested a few alternatives that had never occurred to us. In the end, we decided not only to redo our bathroom, but also to remodel the kitchen area and update the lighting in our family room.

Rob and Helen were professional, remained engaged and reliable throughout the project, and proved to be a terrific resource for contemporary and stylish ideas and recommendations. They even accompanied us, when needed, to provide assistance and advice selecting fixtures and appliances. It was obvious throughout the entire process that their goal was to fulfill our dream safely, provide quality results, and adhere to our budget, while also remaining on schedule. The end result far exceeded our own vision and expectations.

I cannot overstate how reassuring it was to know that, throughout the entire time, everyone took the pandemic seriously and adhered to all precautions. All trade workers proved to be reliable, skilled professionals who not only respected our home but also remained committed to safeguarding our health and safety, along with their own. Every day was concluded with Rob and Helen checking their progress, reviewing the next day’s plans with us, and making sure that the worksite was left clean and organized for a quick startup the following day by the next trade on site. It was clear throughout the entire process that everyone had mutually respectful working relationships with Rob and Helen, which in turn added to our confidence and peace of mind. It was another example that proved to us that Rob and Helen have extremely high standards, and enforce them for the benefit of their clients.

We *highly* recommend De Ponte Construction and wouldn’t hesitate to use them for future projects!

Second story addition

I was very nervous about taking on this project as a female solo homeowner until I met Rob and Helen. They put me at ease and made me comfortable every step of the way! They were highly professional and walked me through every step of the process, happily answering any questions I had. I now have two beautiful bedrooms and the spa bathroom of my dreams! Everything was done on time and within my budget... which is saying a lot whilst in the middle of a pandemic! I can’t say enough good things about the De Ponte’s ... I will definitely be hiring them again for any future project! Highly highly recommend them!!

Basement Renovation

We couldn't have done our basement renovation without Rob and Helen! They managed the schedule and all the trades seamlessly which made what would have otherwise have been a stressful time for us, quite pleasant. They are very knowledgeable in all aspects of a renovation, very organized, on budget, professional and a pleasure to work with.

fire restoration

During a very stressfull time following a house fire,Rob and Helen not only renovated our home beyond our expectations ,but helped us mentally. They drove us to suppliers helping us to chose, countertop,(granite),kitchen cabinetry,lighting,plumbing, etc. The quality of workmanship that was performed on this project was away above Ontario code requirements.We are happy that we decided to have Rob,Helen,at De Ponte Costruction, bring the nightmare we were living to a very happy ending.

Amazing company!

As a preferred trade partner with De Ponte Construction, I am pleased to
write a review on their behalf. Helen and Rob are true professionals that go beyond the scope-of-work required for their clients and they expect the same from their trades. I have had the pleasure of working along side of them for many years and can confidently say that their level of professionalism, support and service sets the bar high in how a Contractor should run their business and take care of their customer. They understand that "Team work makes the dream work" and I am honored to be a part of their team!

Kitchen/powder room/basement bar

We just completed an extensive renovation including a kitchen extension, powder room and basement bar. The De Pontes were professional, responsive and respectful of our home. They were onsite daily with updates to timing and left the house as clean as possible. We were up and running in our dream kitchen by Christmas, as promised. Overall the project went well and we will use the De Pontes for future renovations.

Home renovation

Our home needed a major update to bring it from the 70's to current year, everything from new floors, baseboards, millwork, powder room overhaul, new ceiling, pot lights, stairs, painting and more. The De Pontes delivered what they promised, in the time they promised and kept us on budget. We were given daily and weekly updates on all work done and what to expect from all their trades people, who were all very professional and reliable. The De Pontes' attention to detail is second to none. They helped us make design and decor decisions, and accommodated the last minute changes we made. They went above and beyond by helping us deal with other little hiccups that popped up that were not part of the renovation or their responsibility. We were very happy with the professionalism with which everything was handled are thrilled with the end result. We would recommend the De Pontes wholeheartedly!
