We recently moved to another condo that had a natural gas hookup on our balcony for a barbeque unit. However the previous owner never used it so the connection wasn't ready for use with our new barbeque. We looked on Homestars and other online review sites to find reputable gas technicians and saw all the great ratings for Gas Guys so we gave them a call. We were able to secure a service date 2 days after calling Gas Guys. We got a morning appointment window and George came on time and even gave us a call the morning of to let us know more specifically when he would arrive. George was great! He finished off the natural gas line connection and hooked it up to our new bbq, all the while explaining everything as he was doing it. Once everything was set up, he even showed us how to ignite our new bbq and gave us a nice overview on key things to know about using our new unit. And to top it off, our natural gas line wasn't emitting gas initially so George figured out where the natural gas line valve was in our condo hallway and helped turn that on so that our line was activated! Gas Guys is a great company and George is awesome. We will definitely use them again for any future gas needs and will recommend them to our friends and family. Thanks George for all your help, we're now ready to use our bbq all summer long!

Thank you Josephine for taking the time to write a wonderful review about your experience with GasGuys.ca Inc. I am glad we were able to find the shut off valve and activate that gas line for you. Much appreciated and enjoy the grilling season!

We met Mike at the CNE Spring Home Show and arranged for a quote to paint our condo. Mike was really helpful in explaining their process and the costs were very reasonable so we decided to go ahead with the work. Mike and his team were great. The painters were very professional and ensured all of our belongings were covered and protected throughout the entire process. They were also very respectful of our property, even taking off their shoes while they were here and tidying up each day after they were done. The job took two days to complete (we painted our 2-bedroom condo, excluding the bathrooms) and Five Star Painting did a great job. After the first day, we pointed out some areas for the painters to touch up and they happily ensured all those items were addressed, no fuss or push back on anything. And while Mike wasn't involved in the actual painting work, he was always available via a phone call or email to respond to any questions we had. Overall we're really happy we finally decided to get our condo painted and to do it through Five Star Painting. Thanks Mike to you and your team, this was a great experience. We'll be sure to contact you again for our future painting needs!

Thanks Josephine! It was a pleasure to meet you and Simmer at the Home Show and to work with both of you throughout the process from the initial estimate, choosing colours, scheduling the job with our crew and seeing the final results. Nothing is better than everyone including the painting crew being happy and satisfied with the total process and final outcome. Thanks again for posting the review and for choosing Five Star.

Our garage door needed a new paint job as parts of the paint were peeling off so we looked through HomeStars and found Wagg's painting. It's important to note that we are landlords who don't live very close to our property, as such we try to find companies who are easy to work with though remote means. Wagg's painting was definitely easy to work with in this regards. Chris promptly responded to our request for a quote and we quickly arranged for him to stop by to view the garage and provide an estimate. Once we received the estimate and had our questions answered, we were comfortable with our interactions with Chris and the quote we received to proceed with the job. Everything was handled by Chris himself including providing the paint and primer (at our request as that was easier than having to purchase and supply the paint & primer ourselves). He also ensured that the paint matched the existing color. As the weather didn't cooperate 100%, the job had to be spread over a couple of day. However, Chris was great in providing us with updates including photos of the garage after it was sanded down as well as a photo of the finished product. Our tenants were on hand to review the paint job and provide us with feedback to confirm the work was satisfactory and they were very pleased with the job. We would definitely recommend Wagg's Painting to anyone, especially landlords who are managing their own properties. Thanks Chris and team for making this easy for us an for doing a great job!

I recently listed my condo for sale, however, it desperately needed a fresh paint job. The tenants who lived there had a mini stove fire and as such, there were smoke stains on the kitchen wall and ceiling which I couldn't remove. I needed the work done asap so I contacted a few companies to get some quotes. Kris was excellent as he responded right away and gave me a quote very quickly. We communicated via email and Kris was always prompt in answering my questions, including suggesting a suitable paint color to use to make the unit appear bigger. What I really appreciated about Kris was his ability to accommodate my urgent need to get the entire unit painted before it was shown to prospective buyers. He squeezed me into his schedule a couple of days later and was able to complete the job in 1 day!!! The quality was excellent and my realtor has told me the place looks beautiful. Thanks Kris to you and your team for getting this work done so quickly without sacrificing quality, I'll definitely contact you for future jobs!

The Shock Doctors were great. They came out to see my rental property right away and they performed the work as per my request. I really liked their customer service. Both phone calls and emails were answered swiftly so no waiting around. I also liked that they sent me an email of the electrician who was going to perform the work along with his photo (so I'd know who was coming to my home) as well as proof of both liability and WSIB insurance. This is a great company and I will be using them whenever I need an electrician.

Thanks for this nice review, Josephine!
Whenever Smoke or CO detectors are involved, we don't fool around. Those safety devices are just too important. Glad we could help. :)

My tenant notified me late Saturday night that the furnace had stopped working and that the property was freezing cold. This was extremely stressful as it was a weekend and I didn't know any HVAC companies in Barrie. I searched HomeStars and found great reviews for Ardent Heating so I thought I'd give them a try the next morning. Ardent Heating scheduled a service call within 2 hours after I contacted that so I was extremely happy as I wasn't expecting anyone to be able to help me so quickly. They arrived on time as promised and Jason was excellent. He identified the problem and explained everything to me so that I was comfortable in moving forward with the repairs. Ardent Heating is a great company and I will definitely be using them for any future HVAC needs for all my properties. Thanks Jason for your great work!!!
