Foxtrough was recommended to me by a friend when I mentioned some water overflow last winter which had left ice on the side of my house. I emailed for a quote with a single photo and Jesse quickly responded with a diagnosis of the problem and a three-pronged plan to prevent future occurrences. He worked around my schedule, managed to find a way up to the trouble spot in my cramped backyard, and was finished quickly. The finished work looks very professional and secure. I'll recommend Foxtrough to anyone who asks!

I was impressed by Ian from his first visit to start putting together a bid for us. His eye for detail and natural mastery of potentially complex issues were immediately evident. We bought a 1908-built downtown house that really needed some love. It had never seen extensive renovations or repairs and some serious problems were threatening drainage issues and water damage; that much was evident from our original (independent) inspection. The house also needed a thorough going over as plaster and floorboards were within an 1/8" of their lives. The kitchen and only bathroom were disgusting disasters. Ian took everything in hand quickly and professionally and came up with a plan that met our needs and budget. His wasn't the lowest bid we got, but it was definitely the most thorough, and he stuck to it, only adding what we asked him to as the project moved along. Jarek and the crew do very quick and careful work. I was very impressed by their attention to detail, and how they wouldn't hesitate to fix any small faults I found along the way. The subcontractors Ian brought in were no less impressive. Everyone was a real pleasure to work with and did excellent jobs throughout the house. We now have all new plumbing, spray-foam insulation, reinforced joints, an improved electrical system, new roofing, a new basement walkout with sump pump, a backflow valve, new floors and drywall, new bannisters, a completely rebuilt kitchen and bathroom, and a new powder room. My wife and I are thrilled with the results and have to restrain our enthusiasm when showing the house to family and friends, lest we lose all sense of humility. I can't recommend Ian and everyone at Willistead highly enough. I feel very fortunate not to have any first hand experience with contractor horror stories. Quite the contrary: the whole process has gone exceedingly well. Do yourself a favour and give them a call.

This is an exciting phase in your life with a new practice getting underway, as well as a new home and we are thrilled to have played our part. Starting the planning with you whilst waiting to take possession and your detailed nature greatly helped to speed things along, so that you could move in on time (and on budget!). Thanks again on behalf of everyone connected to Willistead RG.

Prompt, quick, and professional. We bought a house that had some particularly messy tenants in it. There was an unbelievable amount of garbage. We had it all rounded up and nowhere to put it, so we called Rid Of It. They showed up the next afternoon right on schedule, assessed the situation very quickly, and started hauling everything out to their truck with no hassle at all to me. They clearly explained what they could and couldn't take (for legal reasons) and volunteered information on what to do with the rest (i.e. paint, a bike, a shopping cart). I'm extremely pleased with the service. Their pricing was as quoted and their service was prompt and professional. I'll definitely be calling them when I need a bin rental for our upcoming renos!

Clean My Space did weekly cleanings at my house for several months. They were punctual and professional at all times. Cleaning was as thorough as anything I've seen. They use environmentally-friendly products, which I really appreciate. It's a bit pricier than some services, but worth it to have such professionalism.

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

We were really thrilled with the service! The ladies were prompt, cheerful, thorough, and highly energetic! The whole place is a thousand times better, and we feel like we can move in now without it being a giant dust mess. Thanks so much!
