For several years I had intended to have hardwood flooring laid throughout the main level of my 44-year-old bungalow. Laminate had been put in place 2004 to allow me to care for my husband at home after his incapacitating stroke. But its quality and installation left a lot to be desired. This autumn, it was time for it to go! And, as my previous review indicates, this time, I knew where to go, to get it Done Right! Once again, Cory Beauchamp worked his magic. He: • assumed an active role in helping me select the best materials, hardwood, and tile, for my purpose. • took every measure to minimize the inevitable disruption of such an extensive renovation. • designed and installed a unique fireplace front to compliment the hardwood. Cory completed all this with the precision and attention to detail that I’ve come to expect from him, but which still amaze me when I see him in action. His objective? Perfection. His most severe critic? Himself! Along the way, once again, he answered all my questions and performed several little extras that he saw would be helpful to me. The result? A truly transformative renovation; again, at an excellent price. Thank you, Cory Beauchamp, for another remarkable renovation. I’m already planning your next project here, having seen your prowess with decks!

This is the second occasion that I've had the pleasure of doing business with Brian Verhulp of Ring Electric, so I thought I knew what to expect: A fine job, just like the last time. But, as it turned out, it was so very much more than that! This was a more extensive project with many of Bryan's team members participating. Each and every one of them went the extra mile to produce a remarkable result, far exceeding my expectations. Marty, James and Ryan are a rare group of consummate professionals who spare no effort to produce the very best outcome possible. I know that in Bryan and his team I have a company that stands behind their product and installation; people who are a phone call away should I need them. With the purchase of a maintenance plan, I look forward to peace of mind for many years to come. Now, I can honestly say that I look forward to the next power outage too! Thank you to Bryan and his entire outstanding team for a fantastic job!

I was introduced to this Carleton Place ON company as a sub-contractor via the company that is installing a generator at my residence. The two young men who completed the gas line hook-up for the generator were a pleasure to have doing this work. They were professional and personable, took great care with what they were doing and answered all my questions. Given the excellence of their performance here today, I shall be doing further business with Comfort Pro. I recommend this business without reservation and wish them continued abundant success.

Staples has long been my 'go to' option for home office furniture and supplies. Online ordering is fast and easy; variety is vast; prices reasonable. A very modest order merits free shipping. Items arrive promptly and securely packaged. I'm pleased to endorse a business that has saved me time and money. I wish them continued success.

I had employed and been impressed by Just Junk once before, so I knew whom to call when I wanted to part company with an old sofa. Michel and Andrew made quick work of carrying it up the stairs, out the door and into their truck. Once again, fast, professional and personable service. Thank you for a job well done! It is a pleasure to recommend this business and I do so most highly.

I've used HomeStars for some time now and, more recently, have submitted reviews to their site. I find this business to be a useful option in as much as it furnishes an online business presence to entities reviewed there and a resume of clients' experiences with the service. I would add the caveat, however, that since so many businesses have only one or two reviews, one would be well advised not to be overly swayed these reviews, be they positive or negative. To offset this reservation, HomeStars does have a feature whereby one may opt to see reviews by top, that is frequent, reviewers. My other observation would be that I attribute less credibility to reviews from those who do not include their names. The name of the service being reviewed is posted. Should not reviewers similarly take ownership of what they submit? Within these parameters, and assuming that the individual pursues further due diligence on the business selected, I believe HomeStars reviews may provide a useful preliminary tool with which to identify reputable home service providers.

Last year I purchased six Rumidifier units from Manotick Home Hardware and, once again, they have functioned effectively in adding humidity to my home during the drier winter months. This is but one of a myriad of examples of products from which I've benefitted. It is my 'go to' location for all things hardware, in addition to small household appliances, home decorating products, lawn care and furniture... The list goes on! But, such is the nature of a hardware store. What causes me to applaud this one in particular? The service! Personnel are knowledgeable, efficient and helpful. Whether longterm employees or students hired during the summer months, each unfailingly goes the extra mile to provide service with a smile, putting a smile on my face whenever I make a purchase there. In my experience over several decades, Manotick Home Hardware is a hardware with a difference: they care about their customers and the quality of their service reflects this value.

Over many years, I have found that I can depend on the service of Joe Devereaux & Son. They are flexible in booking appointments and always arrive promptly. Once on site, they are personable and proficient in carrying out the operation. Drawing on his knowledge of the field, Joe readily shares helpful tips. It is a pleasure to endorse this business based on my own longterm positive experience.

Over several years, I've purchased a wide range of electronics from Best Buy. For many reasons, I've found that it lives up to its name: the best place to buy! The selection is vast and the prices competative. But, beyond this, the service is knowledgeable, helpful and professional. The option of shopping online has, on occasion, saved me time. After surveying other retailers, I always find myself back at Best Buy for the best buys!

Millers have removed my driveway snow for several years now and I'm pleased to say that I am totally satisfied with their service. Because they consistently come very early after a snowfall, the driveway is always passable in the morning. The operators are very careful in how they maneuver in the driveway, avoiding any damage to nearby structures or lawn. They never fail to return for a second pass through should snow continue to fall. It is a pleasure to endorse this business.

Having used the Dymon facility at the Kanata Centrum location in Ottawa from February 2014 to January 2015, I can recommend their service highly. The personnel are professional, friendly and helpful in every respect. The facility itself is clean, bright and a pleasure to access. Should I require a storage option again in future, I would not consider going anywhere else. The cost is reasonable and the service is first class.

I retained the services of Maple Heights Tree Service in 2015 to remove a diseased Ash tree from my back yard. They are based in Brockville ON, but service eastern Ontario. In our initial discussion, after which I made a 565.00 pre-payment, the owner did not advise me that he would not be removing the resulting debris because they could not take diseased material out of the area. This had me paying him an extra 200.00 to have most of it placed in my side yard, as well as approximately 700.00 to a junk removal service to have wood and wood chips hauled off from both the side and back yard. I find it lacking in transparency not to have made this disclosure when I first contacted them, allowing me to make an informed decision about whether to employ them or to choose a more local provider in order to avoid dealing with this bother and additional costs. As a result of my experience, I cannot endorse this business.

The competent professionals at Done Right Renovations have completed a wide variety projects at my home, all of which deserve top rating. Renovating the ensuite bathroom was no exception. Work was completed on time and within budget, with careful attention to detail. Cory and his team consistently spare no effort to produce results that far exceed my expectations. In an industry riddled with stories of shoddy workmanship and worse, these are craftsmen who know what they're doing, do it right and stand behind their product. I recommend this business most highly and without reservation. Never would I consider dealing with any other contractor. Done Right Renovations is in a class by itself. I wish them continuing abundant success. This review was submitted by my own volition, not at the request of Done Right Renovations.

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.

Chad and Rick are to be commended for doing admirable work to remove challenging waste materials. They were efficient, personable and quick! This transaction was a pleasure. I recommend the service highly.

It was a pleasure to have Mark and his crew from Ring Electric review the electrical status of my home. They were efficient and personable, answered my questions and exceeded my expectations in every way. I thank and highly recommend the professionals at Ring Electric. Well done!
