I replaced two sets of old bay windows for newer ones, and as a result I also had to replace the window trims because the old ones did not work anymore with the new windows. However, I wanted my existing blinds, which were all slightly different dimensions to fit into the new trims. This was quite a challenge: installing trims for two banks of three windows on old walls to properly fit six different blinds. Victor pulled it off perfectly. He did all the work quite carefully and professionally. Everything is straight, level, fits, and looks nice. Victor and his crew also cleaned up well after themselves. I am very satisfied and would hire VLT again. --- Update with pictures: you can see the trims before and after painting (which I did). In the last picture, the blinds are installed and you can see how perfectly they fit.

I needed to have a small (25') shoring job done in my backyard as my excavation was extremely close to my neighbour's house. Lorenzo came strongly recommended and I was not disappointed: he and his team got the job done cleanly, safely, and efficiently in two days. The job also involved some creative problem solving as everything was quite tight. I couldn't really see the quality of the work until two weeks later when the whole area was finally excavated revealing a beautiful job, as you can see in the pictures. Too bad that it will be hidden by my construction!

David helped me completely redesign my new house including an extension, basement lowering, and completely new layout. I am very pleased with my whole experience with David: because the changes were so huge, this redesign was by nature a very evolutionary process: I needed to explore various approaches in order to fully understand my needs and wishes and balance them with reality. David supported this process extremely well and very patiently, producing alternate creative designs (including even a few 3D models!) at key points in the development so that I could fully explore different approaches. It was also a very interactive process which I liked very much: I wanted to be involved in the design and David did integrate some of my better ideas into the plans and very respectfully eliminated the less promising ones. I am very satisfied with what we produced - I say "we" because it felt like teamwork even though David did 95% of the work; as a result I have quite a sense of ownership in this design. In addition to this redesign, David worked extremely well to get the engineering, HVAC plans and city permits in a timely way and keeping me posted on their progress. This was actually also a lot of work, as it involved interacting with the city, engineers, etc. but I it all got done without me worrying about it. That was also great.

Thank you Sophie for taking the time to craft such a detailed review, it’s always nice to work with clients that take an interest in the process and want to remain hands on from beginning to end. Your ideas and feedback were incredibly insightful and very important and I doubt that the final design would have come out as successful or have been as accurate a representation of what you were hoping to achieve without all of your input. It was a pleasure working with you on this project and I wish you all the best with the construction. Take care and keep in touch.
