Full basement renovation

Full Basement Renovation

Arnold has been quick to react to my quote. His responsiveness and professionalism made me take that same quick decision that I have never regretted 1 second. He understood my needs for a simple, clean and practical basement, respecting my tight budget. All along the project, he has provided recommendation which were useful to follow.

He and his team have done an efficient and professional job. Thanks particularly to Navid who is professional, friendly and skillfull. Navid was there everyday, working until late when needed, making sure the renovation could get going without any interruption. It was all about the basement but what is a nice basement without a nice way to go there! I am now proud to say that I have a beautiful hand-made stairs crafted by his own hands.

Thanks to the whole team!

For sure Arnold, you're the first person I will call back when I will be planning my next reno!

Exterior Caulking and Sealing Job

We hired A&K for a job to caulk and seal on the exterior of our windows and doors. Arnold was friendly and responsive throughout and even came personally beforehand to inspect what was needed and match colours. His team arrived promptly on the job day. They worked hard all day and did an amazing job. They even found some issues with the previous caulking, explained the problem, and made sure it was fixed properly. We are confident our windows and doors are properly sealed! The team left the area clean and Arnold followed up to inspect the work. All around awesome job and we would definitely hire them again. Nice work!

2 Full Bathroom Renovations

Originally, we had interviewed 4 different contractors and was to settle with one of them. But my gut feeling told me I should do a few more interviews before signing. I decided to submit one last quote request, except instead of what I thought was to a specific company, I ended up getting 4 additional replies. After meeting up with Arnold, we decided to hire him.

We chose Arnold’s team because he understood our needs and requests. Since, I don’t like surprise pricing adjustments and BS excuses for price jump, we requested for a fixed pricing that wouldn’t compromise on the quality and workmanship.

Arnold included materials and labour in the price. He was fair and reasonable. We provided the vanities and vanity lightings, mirrors, toilets and some accessories, only because we had already had our mind set on a specific look.

We were fortunate and grateful to have had Jerry, the one man does it all team of one.

Jerry completed both bathrooms in 18 days. He is very attentive to details and his workmanship is superb. Jerry is very skillful. He made us feel at ease and was professional and worked efficiently. I didn’t have to worry about him making mistakes. I will miss having him around, making my house beautiful. I would definitely recommend A&K. Ask for Jerry, you won’t be disappointed.

Honestly, be prepared for dust. It is a renovation site. People get all worked up about it. I have real bad allergies, and was well prepared for it. Jerry always tried to keep the work area clean and contained.

Needless to say, Arnold’s meeting was a welcome accidental error on my behalf. Both of my bathrooms are beautiful and was completed within a reasonable timeframe as indicated.

Thank you!

2 bathroom renovation

A & K is a great company to work with. Arnold is really professional, very friendly and knowledgeable.  We hired him to correct some issues with previous renovation in 2 bathrooms, specially the wet areas/tiles.
We showed him our concerns and he pointed out additional things that we didn’t notice.
Arnold is a great person to work with: very easy going, knowledgeable and gave us a lot of good feedback and ideas. He would answer right away to any question or concern we had.
They started the work very quickly and things were on schedule, very nice finishes and attention to details. They completed the work as agreed. He went over and beyond and completed part of the plumbing he discovered wasn't done properly before at no additional charge. Upon completing the master bathroom we requested a quote for the other bathroom and they started right away doing a full renovation tiles, niche, plumbing, painting and baseboard all done the right way. They always kept everything very clean.
I am very picky with details and finishes and he made sure I was happy throughout the whole renovation process.
Arnold was always giving us tips for our DYI projects on what to use and the right way to do it. We have other project to complete and we definitely will contact Arnold again. Already referred to a friend for bathroom reno. If you are on the edge to choose a contractor go with Arnold and you will not regret.

Complete bathroom renovation

We needed a complete gut and rebuild for our bathroom in our 1968 built home. Pulling apart everything straight to the studs. Insulation, drywall, new fan, tiling, plumbing, etc... Given we messed up and ordered the wrong size vanity before choosing A&K they completed as much as they could of the bathroom and waited an extra 4 -5 weeks to reschedule and finish the job off once our new resized vanity came in. Arnold was extremely patient and understanding through the whole process of what had to be done in the bathroom. Arnold and his team were awesome to have here. Very detail oriented and remained focus the entire time. If we had the vanity they definitely would have completed the bathroom in the timeframe they originally quoted us. I would definitely use them again. Hopefully the kitchen will be next!

Living room renovation, paint entire home, paint kitchen doors and cupboards

We live in a 100 year old home. We take pride in our home and always want a nice warm somewhat modern and must be comforting welcoming feeling all around. It was time to add a little more rustic warmth and flare to the living room. Arnold and his fabulous team made creative use of original barn board to create an accent wall and shelving for our living room.

We were so motivated with their inspiring energy that we literally said “paint the whole house while you’re at it!” The care they took in protecting our items and floors was very comforting. Daily follow up updates was welcoming to let us know the progress.

We are so happy that the work was quickly and efficiently completed just in time for Christmas. This renovation is the best gift Santa could ever give us this year thanks to the talent and work from A

Bathroom reno

They had to tear down an old bathroom completely and start over. This involves creating a new shower new floor out of porcelain as well as pot lights and so on.

They did a quality job and were done in two weeks. They never left the job until it was finished. They were great to work with and will do a second bathroom for us next summer. They also cleaned up nicely.
Jerry and Arnold are a great team.

We love the new bathroom!

I highly recommend them.

Bathroom Renovation

In essence, all the great reviews that you can read in this website about this company are ABSOLUTELY TRUE. Add to that the great personality of the owner, Arnold, and you get the best you can wish. Actually, he is the owner and boss, but he does work too and has no problem getting his hands dirty.
Arnold is very easy ro reach (phone or email) and replies very quickly to the requests or questions. He provides a sense or reliability and 'I do not need to worry" that is remarkable and invaluable. He even calls if he is going to be late.
Most of the renovation work was done with us away, but he kept us informed very well.
Cost is very reasonable, the work quality is tops, and he even added and did a few extra things with no added cost.
Bottom line: He is the man and his company is the company. I will be calling him again soon to renovate the 2nd bathroom....the best review I can give.
