When we decided to have our kitchen redone, the staff at Borrowed Time quickly gained our trust with their prompt reply to questions and the professionalism that was shown right from our first meeting. Tanya is a pro at using IKEA software and did not rush us through the design phase. All ordering, pick up and delivery was organized by Tanya (even giving a quick ‘heads up’ call to say the delivery would be imminent). Greg’s vast experience came in to play as he walked us through the reno process and pointed out future considerations so that there would be no regrets. Work was done in a timely manner, the site was left in good shape at the end of each day. Greg kept us posted on timelines and what to expect. We are beyond pleased with the way our kitchen looks. The entire job (kitchen reno, remove and replace most of the main level flooring, painting) was completed in two weeks! Don’t be fooled by the time frame, quality was not sacrificed; it reflects the way Borrowed Time focuses on one job at a time, giving full attention to the customer/job and being easy to contact throughout the process. Highly recommend this company.
I definitely could sleep at night knowing Borrowed Time was on the job. This team not only provided a beautiful kitchen reno, they did it with good communication, attention to detail and excellent problem solving of any issues that arose. They were all very pleasant to work with and always provided updates. They showed up on time and cleaned up when they left. Most importantly, the quality of their work was excellent. I would definitely recommend them and would hire them again.
Greg Johnson is professional and very knowledgeable. When I needed info on whether or not what I wanted could be done, he was able to tell me why my old bathroom floor was cracked and what he would do to prevent the new floor from cracking again. As well as replacing my bathroom floor, he removed the old vanity and plumbing, installed a new light fixture, installed the new vanity and faucet, painted. Everything was done with explanations when necessary and completed in an efficient manor. When finished everything was cleaned up. I'm delighted with my new bathroom! This is the third time I've hired Greg to do work for me - in Nov 2020 he removed the old and installed new kitchen cabinets for me, as well as adding pot lights, painting, removing the old tile floor, installing new subfloor, and running the water supply for my new fridge. I no longer call anyone else for estimates. I call Greg to see when he can fit me in and know that he will do a great job at a reasonable price. I'm very pleased with the work he has done for me.
From quote to finish professional, timely, knowledgeable, and quality. Greg talked you through everything he was doing and why he was doing it. Found ways to maximize the small space we had. Followed all covid protocols. no corners were cut. Tile work was great gaps are tight floor is level. Drywall and mud smooth and clean. Shower work all-around clean work. Trim miters cuts were perfect no gaps. Would recommend him to anyone. Busy guy and I know why it was worth the wait. Only contractor I will use going forward.
Greg and crew it an outstanding job the bathroom compete Reno, & new laundry room. Greg did what he said he was going to do when he said it was going to be done and at the quoted price.
Unlike other work I had done this was a fantastic, stress free experience, my only regret is I had not found Greg earlier.
I highly recommended him to anyone looking for a great work, on time and at fair price.
Greg and crew was prompt, courteous, and professional throughout their job. Work completed on time as quoted. This is the 3rd job we've hired Greg. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a great work and fair price.
Greg and crew renovated a large deck in the summer of 2020 involving many angles using composite decking and aluminum railing during Covid-19. They arrived every day by 8 AM until the work was complete. Greg was very good at keeping me informed both before the project started and during the work. They cleaned up each day after the day's work. Best of all he did not cut corners taking the time to do it right.
We chose Borrowed Time because we wanted a professional carpenter with excellent reviews and Greg met all of our expectations. He was very polite, gave us some excellent suggestions, is an excellent communicator, stayed on budget and finished in the specified time.
We are thrilled with our beautiful, quality built deck and would highly recommend him.
Borrowed Time handled my project very professionally right from the beginning. Tanya was very good in communicating and following up with the steps of the project, I never had to wonder or guess what was coming next and when. Greg took the time to listen to what I really wanted and explained all the work details patiently. Throughout the project, Greg continued to answer all my questions (there were many:) and kept me updated at all times. Also, he stayed within the proposed budget and provided all the details of the expenses.
Thank you Greg, thank you Briar for your outstanding hard work, the details really show your experience. I love my new deck!
When Greg and Briar came to our home, our kitchen was worse for wear. It was the original early 80s kitchen which divided our home and was not functional. It was essential that the wall was removed to accommodate better sight lines/flow in our home. Tanya was amazing to deal with, and had many suggestions for our small space. We were glad we had planned for the removal of the wall/addition of a new beam, because, it would have had to be done for the safety of our family. Greg and Briar discovered that our second story was not supported correctly (and had been that way since the home was built). Without their knowledge, care and experience, our second story could have eventually collapsed. Our home is now a safe, open, bright space and it is all thanks to the team at Borrowed Time. Would recommend them in a heartbeat!
