Flooding restoration and complete bathroom renovation

I waited 6 months before writing this review so that I was certain that the workmanship of 911 Restoration would stand the test of time. Well, it certainly has and I am so thrilled to have found this company through a simple Google search. In October of last year, our contractor accidentally drilled through our sprinkler pipe and caused a major flood to our condo. Within seconds a half a foot of water was on our bedroom and ensuite floors and dripped down to the two units below us as well. We called 911 restoration based on their other positive reviews and they were at our house within hours. They set up industrial sized fans in all of the rooms and assessed the damage. The owner, Raz, was extremely knowledgeable and walked us step by step through not only the water removal process, but also how an insurance company would handle a situation like ours. Raz showed up daily to check on the water removal process and also assisted our neighbours in their suites as well. He was able to dry out the ceiling of two units below us, but the flooring in our unit and the one below all needed to be replaced. Once we gave him the go ahead to do that, he sourced the wood immediately and had it replaced within days. My neighbours flooded bedroom flooring was different than ours, discontinued, and 6 years old, yet he was able to find the exact match for a perfect replacement so he wouldn't have to rip up her entire house.

Anyway, Raz was so helpful that we decided to hire him and his business partner Yaad to redo our entire ensuite since the tile now had to be ripped up from water damage. They made our bathroom project a top priority even though they were working late hours into the night on other emergency floods. When the bathroom quote seemed more expensive than it should have been, Raz was totally transparent and sent me pages of the estimated renovation completely broken down into the smallest materials. The bathroom they created for us (designed by our own design team) was absolutely stunning and came together beautifully. Overall, we are so so thrilled to have found Raz and Yaad. My reviews always give full disclosure so there were a few things I did want to mention so that they are as accurate as possible:

1. Flood restoration and replacement flooring happened immediately, but the bathroom project did go quite a few weeks longer than we were originally told.
2. Based on a lot of tile work that we have previously done renovating our last two homes, the cost of tiling this project per square foot was much higher
3. The grout on our bathroom walls is not as smooth looking as it should be

The customer service of Raz, Yaad and Karli was second to none. I've never come across a service company in any field that takes the time to explain things like they did. These guys are totally genuine and TRULY want what is best for their customer. I have recommended them to everyone I know and would call them again for a future project. Thanks so much 911 Restoration, you immediately brought comfort to a really scary flooding situation and turned it into something better than we could have ever imagined.
