Interlock on drivway

JJR construction did a great job on removing the concrete slab on my driveway and installing interlock stones on it. I'm very happy with their skill, workmanship, and communication among other things. They also re-did the slob in my garage, and poured 2 concrete steps at the front porch. Everything was great. Highly recommended. Thank you

Collapsed garage floor

My garage floor caved and needed to be replaced. Julians workmanship is impeccable and the garage floor looks great. The price was very fair. It was a lot of heavy work removing the original foundation and beams that had failed after 43 years of soil settling underneath. Julian is honest and hard-working and I would highly recommend him for any job you need done properly! This is the guy you want to hire!

Front yard makeover

Julian was terrific to work with from the start. He brought good ideas for how best to re-do our front walkway and garden, and was able to recommend ways of creating the look we wanted without breaking the bank. He and his crew member worked long days every day to get the project done in a short amount of time. Now we just have to add some plants!

Backyard patio build with walkway, grading and sodding

It was almost 3 years ago that we decided we wanted to build a patio in our backyard and every year since then, we've had to put off the project due to cost, finding the right contractor and availabililty. Being a first time homeowner, embarking on our first-ever home reno project was very perplexing for me, as I had heard countless horror stories about contractors from friends and online forums. It was already June by the time I decided that this year I wanted the backyard patio built - and I was skeptical that I'd be able to enjoy the finished backyard this year.

When I posted the project on Homestars, I got almost 17 responses and I spoke to 8 companies in the first 2 days. When I first spoke with Julien, I told him that there are 3 contractors coming to visit the project site that weekend. I think he probably sensed that this was my first rodeo in the home reno space and he politely offered to help review what the other contractors offer to do and their cost - no strings attached. My main concern was that I didn't want to sign on a project and wait x number of months for the work to start. He said he has multiple crews and can move things around if need be.

After getting quotes and speaking with a few companies, I decided to go with Julien because he was very transparent about what he can/cannot do, made recommendations and design suggestions when I asked for them without being overbearing, provided his expert opinion when there are obvious bad choices in design and was able to give me a clear answer when he can start. He also gave me the option to go visit a project that he was doing at a nearby location and I got the chance to speak with the homeowner who "sang praises" about Julien and his crew.

From start to finish the project took 13 days. From the very beginning, him and his vew showcased a level of professionalism and attention to detail that left me thoroughly impressed. He was able to guide us on the style and color of the patio, where we could go and see some samples and also gave me exact phases of the project by which I needed to make certain decisions ( e.g patio stones, choice of steps, electrical wiring etc)

Most of the time, I didn't even know they were working at home. Julien always made sure that he asked for feedback after each stage was completed. And when we needed to make some design choices and changes, he'd explain the situation very clearly and patiently wait for us to understand and provide feedback. He actively listened to my concerns and welcomed any changes I requested. Overall, they meticulously planned and executed every aspect of the patio, ensuring that no detail was overlooked.

Communication was always clear, concise, and transparent. The contractor consistently kept me informed about each stage of the build, providing updates on progress, any challenges encountered, and the timeline for completion. This open line of communication made the entire process smooth and stress-free.

One aspect I want to call out again was that I was amazed at Julien and his crew's work ethic and commitment. I wanted the project completed before a family event in 2 weeks and we unfortunately lost a few days due to bad weather. So, his crew worked a few days till 8-9PM to finish the job on time. After the work is done every day, they'd clean up the whole place before leaving. What impressed me even more was their thoughtfulness in alerting the neighbors when cutting tiles to prevent any dust from entering their homes a gesture that was greatly appreciated.

So, here I am, sitting in my perfectly built backyard patio - which was overrun by weeds only 2 weeks ago. The grading on the patio and side walkway is perfect, the color combination/pattern/texture of the patio is exactly what I wanted, the grass looks like a pristine green carpet.

I cannot recommend Julien and his crew enough for anyone seeking to transform their outdoor space. Their exceptional skills, attention to detail, and dedication to customer satisfaction made the entire patio construction experience effortless and enjoyable.

Interlocking around the house and finishing front poarch with natural stone

The landscaping project surrounding our residence ranks as the second largest contracting endeavor we have undertaken. Given our past encounters with various contractors, I approached the task of hiring a contractor for this particular landscaping venture with considerable skepticism. Over the course of this year, I had the opportunity to interview approximately 15 contractors specializing in interlocking and landscaping work across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Each contractor would inquire about my requirements, take precise measurements, prompt me to select colors from a catalog or their Instagram page, and subsequently provide a quotation. Surprisingly, some contractors failed to even inquire about the preferred color scheme or stone type. While a few decent individuals offered their suggestions in line with my plans, certain contractors even made illegal recommendations, unbeknownst to me at the time. However, Julien proved to be a distinct exception.

I discovered Julien through Homestars. During our initial meeting, he attentively listened to all my requirements and provided valuable insights. Most notably, he directed me towards several landscaping stores where I could personally view and select the appropriate stones for the project. Admittedly, until that point, I was unaware of the existence of such stores, making his guidance immensely valuable. We dedicated nearly a week to carefully selecting the natural stone for our front porch, as well as the appropriate landscaping concrete for our driveway, side yard, and backyard. I am delighted to report that we opted for the thickest stone available, resulting in a visually appealing and robust final outcome.

Julien proceeded to renovate our front porch using natural stone, removing the existing deck. He then diligently worked on our backyard, side entrance, and driveway, skillfully incorporating interlocking stone. Given the slope upon which our entire property was built, he expertly constructed retaining walls wherever necessary, ensuring a seamless and integrated appearance. Additionally, he went above and beyond by constructing flower beds for our enjoyment.

I have taken the time to compose this detailed review solely because Julien has proven to be the most exceptional contractor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His commitment to perfection and his self-critical nature greatly impressed me. He would not rest until he was completely satisfied with each task. Even when my wife and I requested design changes and additional features after the project was finalized, Julien remained patient and composed, never rushing to complete the work or displaying agitation. He consistently met and exceeded my expectations, delivering flawless results. Without a moment's hesitation, I will unquestionably reengage his services for any future projects and wholeheartedly recommend him to all my friends.

snow shovelling service

This is my first year working with Julian and his company on snow shoveling. When I called, he came on the same day to provide an estimate. His prices were on the higher side but overall, he and his crew did a great job shoveling snow and salting the walkways. He also left extra salt for us each time when his crew visited. Since this was my first year working with him, I also asked him to call me and let me know if his crew had been at my properties or were not able to make it due to other emergencies. He has done a good job keeping me informed. I have noted that his crew tended to use a lot of salt. But I found him respectful and receptive to my feedback. I am very likely to use his snow shoveling service again in the future.
