I had open riser staircases installed in my townhouse in 2020. Since then, the wood remained unfinished because I have not been able to find anyone that I felt confident enough to hand the job to. The stairs are small, and lined with glass railings; this required a lot of patience and expertise. I was given various insane quotes and was even told to perhaps only finish the top of each tread because the rest was too difficult.
When I contacted Phil, I got a quick and courteous response to my questions. He came personally to look at the stairs (which I really appreciated), and explained the process of finishing the stairs to me. He put my mind at ease and I felt he really knew his craft. He gave me a detailed quote within a couple of days, and was happy to answer all my questions. Needless to say, his quote was thousands of dollars less than what I had been previously given.
When it came to doing the job, Phil was punctual, meticulous and left the place spotless. He took his time, and found ways to stain the wood in very hard to reach areas (behind glass panels, and close to walls) which no one else wanted to do. I was very grateful for his incredible attention to detail, and his commitment to give me an excellent result.
Another reviewer referred to Phil as the "consummate professional" and he truly is. This is very rare to find nowadays in the world of renovations, especially in Toronto.
I would whole-heartedly recommend his services!
