I spoke to Shakil who provided transparent pricing and then booked a time. His assessment was honest. He could've easily upsold his service, but only recommended mice poison in the attic. It ended being half the price I first assumed. I recommend Shakil.

I initially contacted SJS for a simple electrical repair in my bedroom. Once that was completed, I asked for an estimate to redo my entire bathroom. Joe provided solid numbers, and showed me lots of pictures. I consulted with my wife, and we decided to go ahead with Joe's team to do the work. There were no high pressure tactics and even when we asked for price for just a new tub and tiles in that area, Joe happily gave an estimate. In the end, we decided with a full bathroom rebuild. Though the schedule had a bit of an issue, once confirmed, Joe and team stuck to their scheduled tasks and provided updates. The tile work (floor and bath tub) is neat and tight. The overall finish is great. We really like our new bathroom. Joe provided his advice and took us to stores to select materials. He also had a schedule of payments that was clear. Joe was always easy to reach, and was open about everything. I would definitely use him again, whether it be for a small job, or redoing a bathroom from scratch.

Darryl was prompt in responding and answered all my questions. The eaves troughs were cleaned as scheduled and pictures were taken of the work. He also did additional work - fixing a leaky faucet, and removing and replacing caulking in a tub. Darryl gave a fair estimate, and completed the work in an efficient manner. I also asked him to look into a "dripping" issue that is likely caused by tub. Darryl again provided his professional opinion, and finished the urgent work while fitting it into his busy schedule. The leak was plugged, and Darryl put in new dry wall for the ceiling. I then decided to have Darryl replace my old backyard deck. It was in horrible condition. Darryl gave an estimate, and provided some ideas. It was built from the foundation level, as the original deck was not properly installed with supports. His team finished it during the hottest days of the summer. But our family loves our new deck. We use it almost every day, as it provides us a place to hang out and relax. Darryl was always polite, forthright, and easy to communicate with. His prices were fair, and the work finished to satisfaction. He is my new go to guy for all types of renovations. He can handle small repairs like a leaky faucet, or a bigger job like building a deck from scratch. For the work done so far, I highly recommend this company. Darryl is quick to respond, very professional in all communications, and fair in pricing for the work done. Darryl knows a lot about renovations, and it shows.

I contacted Paul and his team for a duct cleaning. My wife and I had not really planned the whole thing, with our baby's arrival being priority in our lives. The website indicated we could get a booking after March 28. Our baby is due March 29. I asked Paul about flexibility if I need to rebook or cancel. Instead, he immediately contacted me, and offered me something the very next day! Adrian came on time. He was polite and professional. He completed the work within the indicated time frame. When I asked him if everything was working as it should be, he said the equipment, though old, was working fine. The price was $329 - as advertised. No gimmicks, no slick sales moves, and certainly no extras. I immediately e-mailed Paul to thank him again for accommodating us at the last second. Also, I told Paul we'd use him again, and definitely will refer DCS to family and friends. Good work, Paul and the team at DCS!

We were one of their first customers. Peter and Manuela were both knowledgeable about their roles. We had a pricey project, but both helped us trim costs where possible, while maintaining the integrity of the quality and service. The workers always left the house in a clean condition at the end of the night. Especially important to us was that there was always a foreman on sight, and everyone was covered by WSIB and other applicable insurance. The final product was pretty good. Peter was always accessible by e-mail and blackberry. He would personally attend to matters if his workers couldn't. Manuela's design was both practical and made us fall in love with the kitchen. The clean up was pretty impressive, and they even steam cleaned our carpets. Everything was left in a "ready to use" condition. The only negative thing was that it was advertised as a 5 year warranty, but our contract gave us 2. It wasn't a deal breaker obviously. Would I recommend them? Yes. They delivered a product that reflected the price.

I was worried that a pipe had burst inside of the walls. But Chris Cochrane came and took care of it within minutes. Just the wall valve of a toilet needed a quick change and tune up. And the price was more than fair - it alleviated all of my fears and worries. Chris doubled checked his work and offered some helpful hints. I would recommend Chris.
