Thanks a lot Ted. I bought a new house that is about 40 years old but had no exhaust fans in any of the 4 washrooms. There were no vents, ducts, wiring etc either. Also the kitchen had an over the range microwave that had no vent and just recirculated the air back into kitchen. So I was looking for someone to install all this and I am so happy that I found Ted. Prior to finding Ted I talked to several contractors but none of them agreed to do the entire job. Some said they can install the vents but not the electrical, others said they could do the electrical part but not the vent or the patch work on the roof or the outside walls. But Ted, said he could do it all - supplying the best quality whisper quiet Panasonic fans, do the duct work, do the electrical part, do the patchwork outside and inside and install the range hood in the kitchen. And he quoted me a very reasonable price as well. He and his wife arrived on the appointment day on time and got to work immediately starting off by covering all the floors and making sure nothing will get dust and debris. Now the installation on the first floor was relatively straight forward except for the fact that the attic was super hot. But the challenges came while installing the main floor powder room fan and then the fan in the basement washroom. The issue was the joists running in these two washrooms were in the opposite direction and Ted had to do some innovative maneuvering to install these. Took a while. The kitchen range hood that I had bought was also not that easy to install. First challenge was to take off the old overhead microwave which was relatively not difficult. Cutting a whole in brick wall and installing a 6 inch vent and the tight corners that he had to negotiate while mounting the range hood were more difficult. All through out, Ted and his partner were very patient, took their time, never rushed anything and made sure everything fit perfectly. They cleaned up everything, touched up the ceiling and the walls, and once they were done no mess for us to clean up. The whole project of installing 4 washroom exhaust fans and the kitchen range hood took 2 days. Me and my wife are very happy with the service that Ted has provided. We will surely be recommending him to family and friends and off course contacting him if we need something in the future. I also want to thank Homestars for this wonderful website because this is where I found Ted. :)

Thanks for your comments. Even though some parts of your job were challenging, especially the hot attic, we were able to install all your bath fans and stove vent. We are happy you are very satisfied. Ted
