Cladding replacement

Rob and his team tackled this project with immense professionalism and skill. The job comprised replacing rotting wood cladding (more than 30 years old) with James Hardie fibre cement siding. It was no small feat navigating the many angles associated with the building and we were very impressed with the final product. Greg was the foreman on the project and his detail-oriented focus meant no small finish was left unattended to. This was incredibly important given the age of the building and state of decay. The team's knowledge of the product and installation skill was incredible and importantly, they made sure to communicate constantly with the condo board overseeing the project. They kept within the budget set forth at the start and delivered a product we are very happy with. We've received a number of compliments from neighbours and passers-by speaking to the aesthetic quality of the work. Would definitely recommend PCL Interior

Windows, doors, trim

Absolutely delighted with the work performed by Rob and his team.
Despite how extensive this project was, it couldn’t have gone better.
The level of professionalism displayed far exceeded my expectations, in fact everything did.
Rob has an extremely high standard when it comes to both his team and clients.
Don’t fall in the trap of trying to save money while compromising quality.
PCL is not the most inexpensive, but their quality of materials and craftsmanship is the best I’ve ever seen and I’ve been dealing with trades for decades.
Remember, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
If you want the best look no further than the pros at PCL.

THANKS ROB!!!

Windows and Doors

We contacted P.C.L. Interior and Exterior Finishes earlier this year regarding our Windows and Doors. Upon completion we were very happy with the work that was done to our home, It’s as if we live in a brand new home. I found Rob to be very patient and took the time to explain which windows and doors would compliment our home. George did a fantastic job with the install not to mention very precise. We would definitely recommend P.C.L Interior & Exterior to our friends and Family. We will definitely be contacting them for future renovations to our backyard. Thank you Rob, you have made one family very happy!

Exterior renovations

This was a big job! It started on May 21, 2019 and was completed on July 4, 2019.

The work involved removing the existing aluminium siding, the felt insulation behind the siding, the ‘gyproc’ and the fibreglass batt insulation on the second storey of my home. This was followed by the application of expanding spray foam between the studs, affixing ½ inch plywood and ‘Tyvek’ to the exterior of the house. Next, came the installation of the James Hardie trim, lap siding and shingles as specified and the final stage was installing new soffit, fascia and eavestrough.

James Hardie Building Products are manufacturers of premium siding products and P.C.L. Interior and Exterior Finishes Inc. (“PCL”) is a preferred installer of this product.

The change to the appearance of my home was transformational. We have increased the ‘curb appeal’ and have received many positive comments from neighbours. My wife and I are very pleased and very happy with the final result.

In the early stage of my discussions with Rob (the owner of PCL) he asked if I would like to increase the r-factor in the walls and then he explained how the existing insulation can be removed and replaced with expanding foam. This makes the house stiffer and increases the insulative factor. I am looking forward to having a more comfortable home and some payback over the coming years through lowered heating and cooling costs.

When I invited Rob to come and quote on the work, he took very detailed notes and measurements and provided me with a very specific estimate listing all items and costs. He provided excellent advice all the way through the end of the job and was always available for consultation with us.

Rob and the crew from PCL were all hardworking, courteous, knowledgeable and willing to please us. The crew were well-trained, and it was a pleasure to have them here. I had a lot of fun working with these guys too.

We had a few ‘hiccups’ along the way but everything was completely resolved to our satisfaction.

If I was doing another project such as this, I would have no hesitation in using PCL again and if we have any future interior work to be completed, I will be calling Rob.

If you are contemplating a similar renovation you can have complete confidence in PCL that the job will be completed to your satisfaction with high standards in a professional way.

New siding on addition

We were extremely happy with Robert and his crew. The crew was skilled, friendly and happy to answer questions and Robert went out of his way to make sure that all of our questions and concerns were answered and dealt with right away. His main concern was our happiness with his work. We felt that they truly had our best interest at heart giving us tips on other areas of our exterior in order to have a water tight house. Also Robert was extremely detailed and quick when sending his quote and revising the quote when unforeseen items arose so that you were always on the same page with the finances. I will definitely pass on this company's name to friends and neighbours who need exterior work done on their houses.

Full House Renovation

Entire home renovation! New, floors, subfloors, baseboards, casings, stair case, kitchen, 3 bathrooms, living room, dining room, family room, laundry. Attic and wall insulation for our old plaster house. New windows, flashing and eaves. Rob and his team from PCL were a dream to work with. They worked with our budget and were very knowledgeable and helpful with our vision. They completed everything in a timely and efficient manner. Not only is our home beautiful, we are also saving on gas and electricity too. Most importantly, Rob and his team came back to the job to make sure everything was done to our satisfaction and left no items incomplete. We are happy to recommend their work over and over again!!!

Complete exterior renovation

This was a huge job! We repurposed our garage, completely rebuilt our front porch with stone pillars, removed 5 layers off the house, added spray foam and then finished with James Hardie board and trim. We have a 100 year old heritage property and needed approval for our changes. Roberts team worked with our architectural plans and we are so happy with the finished product. Robert’s team are hard workers and have a great eye for detail. On more than a few decisions I had no idea how I wanted something to look and they talked me through options and their suggestions looked better than I could have imagined. There were a few bumps along the way and it took longer than we were expecting but the finished look was worth it!

New siding installation.

The work was done professionally, high quality and with focus on detail. Rob and his team were courteous, friendly and informative. Extra work was done due to asbestos tiles that needed to be removed under the old aluminum siding. Rob had a professional removal team come the same day to remove the tiles. The price was reasonable for the job. I would definitely hire PCL if needed in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality contractors. Thanks again Rob, Greg and the rest of the PCL team.
Sincerely Richard.
