We were looking for a contractor to renovate our 100-year old semi. The house has deteriorated over the years under the previous owner and required a full renovation. We got a structural assessment done and were looking for a contractor who specializes in framing and could complete the job as per the structural report. I found Slava on Homestars and he came the next day to provide a quote, which was reasonable. After the initial job we got Slava’s team to complete the remainder of the renovation. Our full renovation included: demotion of floor boards, sistering floor joists on the main and second floors to level the floors and strengthen the structure, brick work to add a new window and French doors, installation of windows and doors, framing of all walls, drywall, taping, painting, all millwork and caulking, bathroom tiling and installation of the engineered hardwood flooring.
Slava has an extensive network of subcontractors and we were able to tap into them including: full electrical rewiring, new HVAC, new plumbing (Dennis was great), new kitchen and built in bedroom closet, new stairs and railings and roofing.
Throughout the renovation process Slava has been very reliable, responsive, trustworthy, professional, quoted fair price, always thinking on his feet and was great with troubleshooting when it came to managing sub-contractors. We were also able to work alongside Slava’s team and did ourselves some of the plaster wall demolition and wall insulation work. We learned a lot from his team (big thanks to Kevin and other team members!). Overall, we are very happy with Slava and would use him again for another project down the line.
