We hired Blackstone Renovations to perform a major elevator addition to our 2-storey home. They installed an elevator vestibule from the basement to the second level on the exterior of our home with interior access in the basement, kitchen and master bedroom. They did an exceptional job of matching it to the existing exterior house finishes. Most people comment that the addition looks like it was always there. From dealing with the Architect to City Planners and sourcing new and creative ideas for supplies & suppliers, Paul, Darrel and the Blackstone Crew were truly a god send. Not having planned for such a renovation, we all felt and appreciated the good hands we were in every day during construction. Every detail was carefully planned and completed on time, even in the middle of a pandemic! As other reviewers have previously mentioned, you can see that this family owned business treats their employee’s as part of that family and we are sincerely going to miss having them around every day. The eye to detail, excellent craftsmanship and thorough follow-up would lead us to recommend Blackstone to anyone - hands down.
We purchased a home that Blackstone had just completely renovated. We looked at in excess of 50 homes that had been recently renovated in more established neighbourhoods and the renovation completed by Blackstone was head and shoulders above any others that we saw. Once purchased, Paul and his team were quick to respond to any questions we had and walk us through the features of the home that we weren’t fully familiar with, like the boiler system. We appreciate the work Blackstone completed and wouldn’t hesitate to refer them to anyone else looking for a home renovation.
Blackstone was by far the best renovators we have worked with. Paul and his crew were outstanding. We gave him an almost impossible timeline and he achieved what we originally asked him to do and then some. The attention to detail was greatly appreciated. The end result is a more beautiful home than we anticipated. We would definitely work with them again and will recommend them to anyone else that needs a renovation.
Paul & his crew did a great job working on our home upgrades. They adapted to surprises as we "opened things up" in our 40-yr old home and had some great ideas for some custom work, like sound deadening the loud upstairs bathtub filling noise we'd hear from downstairs (using special acoustic insulation). They kept non-work areas well protected & cleaned up very nicely each day. They had no problem handling issues like having to re-route some drain pipes in unexpected locations or wiring. As we discovered other upgrades along the way they were able to handle all those items. They provided us with a detailed breakdown of items and costs. Paul kept in touch with progress updates so we always knew what was going on and what was next. I would recommend Blackstone for your home improvement projects!
Blackstone is the best renovation company to go with hands down! I wanted to punch holes in my wall so that Blackstone couldn’t leave! They installed a 3 stop elevator in our bungalow with the end result better than we thought. They went above and beyond with their service, assisted me with every single thing I asked of them and their workmanship was better than I could have expected. They were respectful, professional and the cleanest contractors I have ever dealt with. They made sure that every day their equipment was tidied up and even made sure to let my cat out of the bedroom before they left! All of the guys (and girls!) on their team were great to deal with and represented Blackstone perfectly. You can see that this family owned business treats their employee’s as part of that family and I am sincerely going to miss having them around every day.
Hiring Blackstone Renovations to do our massive demolish and rebuild was the best decision Little Learners Preschool could have made. Working with very tight timelines, Blackstone came through on time and on budget with excellent craftsmanship. Their professionalism and honesty has made them a great company to work with.
Blackstone re-painted the entire interior of my house, had extra insulation blown in the attic, installed a tile backsplash and new sink in the kitchen, had electrial work done in the furnace room, and installed 2 new exterior doors. Work from the Blackstone team and their subs was all top quality, house was left clean every time, and are a trustworthy crew.
Paul showed up, measured everything, drew up some options, and then met to review whether needs were met. Came up with great idea for keeping cabinets off the floor to avoid water damage. A few on the fly modifications were necessary, but everything came together as planned. Very happy with the work. Job site was cleaned up when the project was finished. No problem recommending Blackstone to anyone looking for a hands on contractor.
I hired blackstone renovations to perform a major renovation on my 2-storey condo. They built an elevator enclosure from the basement tothe second floor with entrances in the basement, the garage, the living room and the upstairs office. The job was carefully planned and completed (5 weeks) on time and on budget. Paul kowalenko paid close attention to detail and finishing. His workmen have been with him many years and have excellent skills. I am very pleased with the result and would highly recommend his company.
