Main floor remodel

We are really happy and satisfied with the results and experience of remodelling our main floor. We really appreciated how Mike was so responsive and he really goes the extra mile to make sure we are happy and that everything runs smoothly. His team was very professional, arrived on time everyday at our site and always left the place looking clean. We felt safe and reassured that everything was going to be ok. Mike did a great job keeping us on track and within budget. I would definitely recommend and will most certainly be working with Homes by Dones again in the future.

Home Reno

We decided to make completely redesign our condo townhome, making it an open plan, changing the stairs and redoing the flooring and painting on all three floors.
Homes By Dones ran with this project from start to finish, managing the demo, structural work and the fine finishes. As with any Reno, issues came up and Mike was always on the ball to take care of them, keeping us informed throughout the project. The weekly status reports were also reassuring and very appreciated. Excellent work by Mike and the team of contractors.

Bad job done

They redid my kitchen and bathroom. They caused a leak under my new shower by faulty installation of the showerhead, which we discovered a few weeks after they finished the job. If it had been found later, it would have caused serious damage. They came a few hours later on that day and fixed it. Luckily we caught it early and I was saved that diaster. Grout in my new porcelain floors keeps crumbling and cracking. I have one loose tile already. I now have to go with a new company so that my floors can be properly assessed and saved. There were lots of other issues with this company.

Hello Holly,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

I am truly sorry that you had these issues during the construction process, I know this must be difficult for you at this time. I reviewed everything with my team, and the reason the grout is having issues is because the floor has not had an adequate amount of time to fully cure. As discussed before tile installation, the tile should, ideally, have 72 hours to fully allow the bond to solidify, in some cases, 48 hours would suffice. Because their was movement on the floor the same day, and much after, the bond below shifted, which caused cracks/crumbles in the grout. We mentioned this would happen, if walked on immediately after install, and I scheduled my team for touch ups immediately after. It is difficult to ask any homeowner to vacate their home during a remodel, and given these times, it is even more challenging, so I understand your frustration. As per our previous discussion, I would be glad to help you resolve the grout issue, however, if you decide to go in another direction, please follow the companies recommended guidelines to prevent any future damage.

Kind Regards,

Mike

Bathroom Remodel

Mike’s gutted and renovated our bathroom to luxury standards for a super reasonable cost.

They were polished, his guys came in company shirts, problem solved all issues professionally.

They removed the several inches of old sub flooring, I don’t recall asking them to, I feel sorry that their guys worked so damn hard, but the end result looks like a masterpiece up close. Attention to detail is remarkable. When you text them to discuss, the response is immediate.

This is by far the best contractor I have hired, and as a landlord, I have hired many. I didn’t not know Mike prior to this engagement, and due to the quality/value he provided, he will likely be a very busy guy. I didn’t want to write this review because I hope to engage them again, but the least they deserve is essentially a perfect review. I would now have a problem working with anyone else.

Bathroom Renovation and Expansion

We met with Mike to show him our potential plans for a bathroom renovation ranging in size and scope. Mike was very easy and fluid to work with, allowing us to really achieve all that we desired working within our given budget. We were able to bounce ideas off of him to really narrow in on what we wanted to accomplish. When we were finally ready to go, Mike organized the team to start soon after. When the team showed up on site, they were very professional and got right to work. We had some early hiccups, but Mike and Tom were very helpful in finding resolutions that worked for everyone. The bulk of the project was completed in the timeframe Mike originally estimated, with just a few odds and ends they finished up shortly thereafter.
We would definitely choose to work with Mike and team again in the future and recommend them as well. My wife and I are very happy with our new bathroom and really appreciate the whole project being handled with such professionalism, reliability, and responsiveness.
As you can see, great work!
