It was our first ever home reno and I had heard so many horror stories I was afraid to embark on the journey. Our home desperately needed a major upgrade to bring it into the 21st century. It was badly outdated when we moved in 15 years ago. We needed the entrance way, kitchen and 3 bathrooms to be gutted and redone to bring new life into our house. My wife and I knew nothing about renovation, design or materials (and both have very little idea of style and colour). I went to HomeStars and interviewed 6 of the most highly rated businesses as well as several more contractors who had been recommended by friends. I have to say that I was immediately impressed by our representative, Cheryl. She came into our home and got a feel for our lifestyle and needs. She gave us a detailed quote that specified all the materials that were to be used. Everything for the reno was included (except a couple light fixtures). I frankly didn't have a clue about choosing sinks, tiles or anything else for that matter. The quote was really too good to be true and she picked excellent materials that we were very pleased with. We were welcome to upgrade anything but frankly I didn't feel the need to add very much. Many other contractors quotes would have made us price each and every material used to find out what the budget would be and frankly I didn't want to have to price each item individually to find out how much the total job would cost. But I can tell you we got an EXCELLENT deal in consideration with the size of the job. Other quotes were higher even though they didn't include all the materials. Cheryl took the time to sit down and educate us on choices and components because frankly we didn't have a darn clue. And I can't say enough how respectful all the guys including Danny, Mark, Ben, Quing and David were in our home (especially in a time of COVID). Cheryl said she could do this major reno in 6 weeks and I chuckled to myself at the time. Well they finished it all in 6 weeks and 3 days and the 3 day delay was caused because of supply problems finding the sink I wanted. They did so many extras and it all remained within budget which I find to be truly amazing! Cheryl came today for the final payment "less deficiencies" and really there was not one to be found. I don't usually do "these review things" but I can not tell you how happy I am with K Wood. From the design to the finished product this team can not be beat. And I haven't even mentioned how beautiful my kitchen cabinets are yet! Thanks to all the great people at K-Wood who made our dream home reality.

My 2 older boys have moved out of the house and I'm at that age when climbing a ladder can be a disaster (my dad fell off ladders 3 times ... you think he would have learned the first time). I felt like it was time for a professional solution. I got several quotes for various over priced products but found the both the product and price for gutter guards at Maple Windows to be excellent. They were able to complete the installation in one week which was amazing. But even more amazing was the professional manner in which the product was installed. They went beyond the call of duty even installing a splash guard (which I had purchased previously) to stop problem with overflow caused by a valley bringing too much water down and bypassing the eves. I am in no way affiliated with this company but if you are looking for a permanent solution to cleaning eves then this is the company to do it for you.

I recently purchased a king size bedroom suite. All the furniture was king size and super heavy. We Haul moving gave quotes that were 50% better than the competition. The stairway was a tight fit but they took the time and care and had the expertise to get everything safely upstairs (I never want to move it out cause I can't imagine I could ever get it to fit). They even helped on the assembly. If I could give a higher rating than 10 I would certainly do so.

When I heard about the Ontario Green Fund incentive for home insulation I jumped at the offer. My second story was added about 25 years ago and the attic insulation was very uneven and thin in many spots and not nearly up to today's standards. I contacted 4 local companies for quotes. The service offered by the 4 companies was very comparable but I was most impressed by Ecostar. There were very knowledgeable and their quote was less than half the price of the most expensive quote. Now I don't choose contractors by price alone. There are many other factors to consider. The service was quick. They were able to complete the job within 10 days of signing the contract. The installers were very courteous. They took the time to explain what they were doing and to make sure to treat my home with respect. They were ultimate pros and made sure that they left the job site as clean as it was when they arrived. After they finished I inspected the work and was very happy with the finished product. I'm hoping to save $$$ on electricity bills for years to come. I would highly recommend Ecostar Insulation and now is a great time to use the Green Ontario Fund incentive to help subsidize the job.

I was looking for a new AC and furnace and priced 7 or 8 systems from various contractors. Spring Home was the best quote by far. They took the time to explain the various options and sell me the system that was best for my needs. They were quick and professional. I've used them for service and am very happy with the speedy results and good service.
