I was not having great luck getting quotes for my mom's Toronto condo renovation. It was in bad shape, probably 50 years old and I was moving mom to Calgary and I wanted to rent her place right away for her. I was really pressed for time and I didn't really know anybody in Toronto. Then my cousin suggested Homestars. I immediately had 3 quotes, one from CozyCasa. The next day CozyCasa met me at the condo, took measurements, came back with the best quote of four I had, negotiated fairly then started demolition three days later on Oct 7 once I organized permissions from the building management office. I went back to Calgary on day 2 and the company sent me progress photos every day. In one day everything was removed and new materials started coming in right away. Within two days I had 3D layouts of the new kitchen cabinets and counters to approve. I was in shock how fast CozyCasa was moving. In week 2 the tile and floor was already in and in the third week the entire kitchen was installed and it was DONE and ready to be rented. I was really happy because CozyCasa took care of everything. It picked materials, paint colours, flooring and tile, bathroom fixtures, tub, toilet, vanity, installed a complete new kitchen with cabinets, pantry and built a separate laundry room. All of the electrical outlet, switchplates and door handles were replaced with new. Fan and heating vents were all repaired and refinished. All of the lighting was replaced with new LED lights. It was a complete modernization. CozyCasa brought in all the vendors and subs needed to install and complete the job. I did nothing except stand back and watch it happen. The CozyCasa team were nonstop every day and they worked with the building superintendant and management office and the office reported to me that CozyCasa was excellent to work with and kept things clean and adhered to all the condo regulations. CozyCasa connected me to an excellent vendor for appliances and coordinated delivery so I didn't have to deal with any of that. CozyCasa found me a broker for insurance after my bank refused to provide liability and renter insurance. CozyCasa kept in touch daily and stayed on budget. On October 27 I had a brand new home and was able to rent it Nov 1. It was gorgeous and lots of people were knocking on the door to rent it as word spread throughout the building. If you have a project, you can't go wrong using CozyCasa. I reviewed previous work by CozyCasa and it does a lot of renos, flips, basements, legal entries and more. More importantly, the company is incredibly honest and respectful of its projects and people affected by construction. The people at CozyCasa all have an excellent work ethic I found. I think CozyCasa's success is because it has an amazing team of workers and vendors who obviously get things done quickly and efficiently. Never in my life have I had someone do such an amazing job in less than three weeks. I have a ton of pictures of this transformation. If you need a reference, contact me for any questions. I've decided to find another property and CozyCasa will be the only contractor I will use. Highly recommended.
