After ten years of living in our 1892 house in the Beaches, we were finally ready to put an addition to the back of our house to increase our kitchen size, to add a new master bedroom with ensuite, and a new laundry/storage room in our basement. After doing lots of research on contractors here on Homestars then meeting with and getting quotes from 4 contractors, there was no question that we were going to work with Pavel and Novacon. Simply said, we couldn't have made a better choice.
From working with us to design (from my awful sketches) the new spaces, to getting the permits, to then doing the actual work, the Novacon team was excellent. While there were issues/unforeseen decisions that came up (as is common in any major renovation...especially with old houses), all were handled so well. Novacon came up with great solutions to any problems that were often at no extra cost to us.
William managed our project and was great to work with - whether it was during our regular in-person meetings, through their app (which is fantastic), or on phone calls, emails and texts! There are MANY decisions that have to be made throughout a renovation and William kept us on top of them and was great to bounce ideas off. Yvon was also fantastic to work with and at coming up with creative solutions. As others have said, Yvon is a true craftsman who takes great pride in his work and it definitely shows. He has a great eye for detail - noticing that the trim beside our stairs had a different finish/cut at the top versus the bottom. We barely noticed this even after he pointed it out to us (and certainly never would've noticed it) but he insisted that the work be redone.
Throughout the renovation, friends would ask for the horror stories but we had none! Pavel has built an excellent team that not only communicates very effectively but who are honest, ethical and really great at their craft! They stand by their work and have come back in to fix deficiencies that were only noticed after we moved back in.
We truly can't say enough great things about Novacon and can't wait to work with them again on our future projects!
