Chris and his team at Profile Cabinetry and Millwork did an incredible job renovating the entire main floor of our home. We're incredibly happy with the final results and have received so many comments from friends, family and even strangers online about how good it looks.
Our house is an old home, built in 1925, and much of the main floor had barely been touched in that time. The kitchen was difficult to use and impractical. There was a mudroom addition to the house sometime in the 1950's or 1960's, but that room was not usable in the winter as it was not properly insulated.
Chris managed the entire renovation from the planning and permit stages all the way to final finishes. We gutted almost the entire main floor of our house down to the studs and floor joists. Chris and his team of employees and subcontractors handled everything and did a great job.
We ran into some delays with this job because it was started just a few days before the pandemic really hit Canada, but Chris did a good job with managing those unforseen circumstances and communicating well with us throughout the project.
Chris did a great job at helping us keep everything within our budget. We knew going into a project this big on a house as old as ours that we would run into some unexpected costs, and he did a good job at communicating those to us and managing the costs of them. One example of that was with our mudroom addition. It was built really poorly when it was first added to the house, so the entire structure was sinking and was actually coming apart from the house, which we couldn't tell until the job started. There were a few different options for recitfying that and Chris took the time to walk us through our options, price out each and update our permits with properly engineered drawings detailing how they fixed the issues.
They also did a good job making the most out of tiny spaces, as our house is really small - under 900 sq feet. Chris was able to add a new 3 piece bathroom to our house while also enabling us to still be able to use the mudroom as the new main entrance to our house. Our kitchen and living room also feels so much more spacious with proper planning and the removal of an unnecessary wall.
One great thing is that Chris has really high standards of his team and subcontractors. If I ever had an issue with something, he would fix it without hesitation. There were also times when he would have something redone to meet his standards without us even asking. My wife and I are honestly very particular and warned Chris about that before going into this project. He handled that well and met our expectations.
Overall, we really love our "new" house, and have been happy to already be able to recommend Chris and the Profile Millwork and Cabinetry team to a number of friends.
