Fast and efficient

Robbie was hardworking, reliable and cheerful, with lots of helpful suggestions for reno of my ensuite bathroom. My condo neighbours were pleasantly surprised at how much he got done, and with very little noise! He picked up the tiles and vanity I had bought. I had the shower, shower system and vanity taps delivered.

Kitchen

This was our second time dealing with Robbie (first time was a bathroom reno 8 years ago). As usual, he was very professional and very knowledgeable about all areas of our small kitchen renovation. He provided some excellent, practical advice throughout the process. Workmanship was top-notch all around. Work completed included ceiling refurbishment, new floor tiles, new ceiling lights, new backsplash tiles, range hood installation.

Kitchen renovation

We hired Robbie to renovate our bathrooms a couple of years ago and hired him again on our second home to do our kitchen and mudroom renovation. His work speaks for itself. Before and after pictures attached. He also works closely with a licensed electrician for the electrical work who we highly recommend.

Deck

Robbie had previously renovated our kitchen and bathroom. We were pleased with the results and decided to ask him to demolish our old deck and build a new one. Robbie is reliable, responsive and has great design ideas. He provided us with a timeline, a budget and he stuck with it. Most important to us: he listens and he's skilled. Will definitely have him back for future renovations.

Master Ensuite Bathroom

Robbie recently gutted and renovated our ensuite bathroom and we’ve been satisfied with it so far. Robbie was easy to work with and it was evident that he was experienced, as he had an order to doing things. He seemed knowledgeable about suggesting the use of materials and recommended places to buy them. He was also very receptive to re-doing areas that needed to be re-done and was very accommodating. He also returned after the job was completed to finish off sealing the shower and fixing minor areas that were missed. My one bit of feedback was that he needed to take a little more care outside the renovation area as there were some scratches and dents in my floor. All in all, the bathroom looks good and I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.

Bathrooms

After several quotes from bathroom contractors listed on Homestars, we decided to go with Robbie from RAAKSS. The prices were all very comparable but after having met Robbie, we decided that his professional, easy-going manner would suit our purposes. We had very little knowledge of a bathroom renovation, and he was quick to provide us with help and many tips. We were so happy with his work, and his punctuality, that we had him do three more of our bathrooms! Thanks Robbie for putting up with me.

Basement Bathroom renovation11

We had obtained 3 quotes for the washroom and chose to go with one who could start right away as our daughter and son in-law were wanting to move in. Robbie actually told us to be careful as this was a red flag(being able to start right away). And he was right! the job was botched badly and we were left having to have it all ripped out and redone. We called Raakss and Robbie came and looked at the horrible job we were stuck with....he was very understanding and gracious and gave us a timeline and reasonable quote along with some very helpful advice and suggestions regarding tiles ,lights, shower glass etc. Robbie worked on our project every day for a couple of weeks, he was professional and a pleasure to deal with and kept us up to date on all the progress. We are thrilled with our new bathroom and learned the hard way....we should have went with Raakks and Robbie in the first place.

Bathroom Renovations

We chose RAAKSS because we were impressed with Robbie's pleasant but professional manner when he promptly arrived to give us a quote on gutting and renovating two bathrooms. His quote was in line with another reasonable one we had received, and we were comfortable with the detailed contract that provided us with a price for his labour. Once Robbie began our project, he arrived reliably every day, progressing methodically from one stage to the next quite quickly. It was important to have all the materials we provided (i.e., tiles, fixtures and accessories) on hand to not slow Robbie down, but he was flexible when there was a brief delay in receiving an item. He demonstrated his expertise by solving issues that came up, such as our purchase of a freestanding bathtub intended for installation while a home is being built! We would advise making use of Robbie's knowledge and experience by asking for his recommendations for important items you will require prior to purchasing them. Robbie completed our two bathrooms in the predicted time, at the quoted price, and they look beautiful! He didn't abandon us when the shower enclosure we purchased refused to co-operate, persisting with solutions until we were satisfied with the results. It was a pleasure to work with Robbie and we would gladly do so again. In fact, we have already recommended RAAKSS to friends. Thanks Robbie!

Bathroom Renovation

Robbie renovated my bathroom for me 6 months ago and it still looks phenomenal! I have a very small bathroom and he helped me to make it feel much larger by converting the tub into a shower, installing a smaller vanity and toilet, and removing the door to install a sliding barn door. I had a very specific vision of what I wanted and Robbie was able to execute this perfectly while still making very helpful suggestions. I love the heated floors!! He also resolved ventilation issues and water damage while still finishing on time and on budget. Thanks Robbie!

Powder Room Build

We hired Robbie to put a powder room where we had previously had a closet on our main floor. It was a tight space, but he made it work. We had a number of other quotes which ranged from the absurd to the impractical. Robbie walked us through how we might make it work (without moving walls and staircases), and helped guide us through material selection and layout. They did a great job - handled all parts of the job - and were in and out on time and on budget. He also suggested installing a heated floor, which is an upgrade we thank him for all the time! Would absolutely h
