This is the third time we have used Decorative Details and will continue to do so. The owner, Michael Darnley, is personable, easy to understand and provides reliable, excellent service. Michael just finished removing all the carpet in a three-bedroom suite and replaced it with beautiful laminate. Michael's recommendations for laminate thickness and soundproofing underlay has meant that the tenants below don't hear our dog barking anymore. The work included quarter-rounds and transitions, disposable of the old carpet, moving of all furniture during the renovation, and he cleaned up afterwards! They completed the whole place in less than five days! We highly recommend him for any home renovations. He is doing our bathroom next!

We were preparing our home for sale and decided we had to renovate the living room, replace the front door and paint the basement. Having used Michael Darnley of Decorative Details Inc before, we called them again. The door arrived and was provided 3 inches too narrow. They came up with a creative and beautiful way to bridge the gap and the door looks amazing. They then removed the old stucco ceiling in the living room and then installed potlights, added crown moulding and repainted everything. Finally he painted the basement. Prospects seeing our home raved about the renovations. The house sold in 4 days well above asking price. I would highly recommend Michael Darnley of Decorative Details for any renovations.

I purchased a door from Rona. We worked with their door specialist and told them that we want a door where the sidelight hinges and swings open. We were told no problem and we gave them the specifications and ordered the door. That's when the problems started. The door arrived and it was too narrow for the opening, After looking at the quote it was obvious they transposed an 8 into a 5. The door also turned NOT to have a swinging sidelight, which is why we paid special for it. When I raised this with a different door specialist he insisted that all was as it was ordered. I asked him to requote the door with the differences we had noted and HE REFUSED! My wife was there when we ordered the door and confirmed we were told we would get what we asked for. I escalated to the Assistant Store Manager. He talked very calmly and said he would get it sorted after we sent him photos of the door. The photos were sent a week ago and we have heard nothing. I wonder if they will come through and address their mistakes at all.

We had another contractor who started the bathroom renovation. It was a mess, a nightmare. Instead of using their expertise to advise us so we could avoid issues we ended up with a number of DIY type mistakes as well as their own sloppy work. Mike Darnley and Decorative Details to the rescue! Where the previous contractor quoted $7000 to fix their mistakes Mike did an amazing job for $2000. He advised us on the fixtures to use, correct placement of the vanity and lights and we now love our bathroom. Thanks Mike!

I recently replaced 3 2nd floor windows, a large living room window, 2 basement windows and a sliding patio door. The work was done quickly and efficiently in ONE day. The workman was friendly and pleasant to work with. They cleaned up afterwards. I would highly recommend Brock for your next project.
