We have fallen back in love with our home! Rachael and Pat were a pleasure to work with. They are professional, down to earth and take great pride in their work. The crew was always pleasant and respectful. From our first meeting we had a good feeling - Rachael and Pat came with constructive ideas and when we presented our budget they worked hard to build an action plan that would make our dreams into a reality. They are highly communicative which we really valued. Inevitably there will be bumps/surprises in a reno - the Cadence team was quick to flag them and to present solutions/options to keep us as customers happy and the reno on track. They are very organized - our reno was completed on time and on budget. The workmanship is excellent - their attention to detail is great, and when we flagged small things for improvement there was never an issue or ego. Rachael and Pat welcomed our feedback and encouraged us to be vocal throughout the process to ensure we would be happy upon completion. We would highly recommend Cadence.
My husband and I consulted with a few companies before signing with Cadence Construction and Design Inc. to renovate our basement. What made them stand apart from the rest was their ability to listen to our needs, articulate what they could do within our budget, and create a realistic plan. In addition, the power to select a lot of the materials and finishes was significant because we did not want a cookie-cutter style basement.
We relied on their expertise to solve unique design challenges in our space. They demonstrated innovation, creativity, and commitment to professional craftsmanship with every detail. Rachael and her team were always there to guide our decision-making process with great attention towards selecting quality products.
We’re so proud of what we accomplished, and we are exceedingly grateful to all of the contractors from Cadence and to all members from the various other trades that made our dream come true. They delivered custom results way beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend their services to anyone!
From day one we knew we were in good hands with Rachael and Pat. A leak in our outdated 70s basement prompted us to prioritize a project that we thought was a few years down the line. Cadence helped us transform our tiny basement into a cozy bonus space that we are thrilled with - a new hangout space for my husband, a full washroom that’s great for guests and an adorable little laundry nook for me! Excellent communication, a truly kind and lovely team of tradespeople that I trusted every step of the way in my home, and an eye for keeping the project on budget. We can’t wait to work with you again on our next project!
Thank you so much Colleen. It was such a pleasure to work with you and we look forward to any future projects you may have in store for us.
Ever since we bought our home, one thing that my husband and I wanted in our house was a kitchen renovation. When we finally got the time, we got many recommendations from various people for contractors but we are so glad that we found Cadence Construction. Rachael and team were professional right from the start. She came home to provide us a free estimate and design. She was patient to listen to our needs and gave us a design suiting all our needs. The best thing that I loved was the personal shopping experience with Rachael for cabinets, tiles etc. Rachael and team were meticulous and paid attention to detail. We are extremely happy with our kitchen and thank you Rachael to make our dream come true. Would highly recommend Cadence Construction.
Thank you so very much Vandanaa. We are so happy that you loved your experience with us and we wish you many years of happiness in your new kitchen.
We hired Cadence Construction for our basement renovation. We sought out a number of quotes from different reno companies. Cadence was the only one that really listened and took note of our ideas/wants. Rachael was terrific both in the planning stages and during the construction. Always available to address any questions/concerns. The crew members were terrific. They were respectful, on time and communicated ahead of time if they were going to be away that day. The quality of the work was very high. We highly recommend Rachael, Pat and the crew and would certainly hire them again.
Thank you so much Glen. It was a pleasure working for you and the family. We're sure you will get many years of enjoyment in your new basement.
Rachael, Patrick and their team did a fantastic job on our small basement. They took the time to understand our needs and planned use for the space, and how to make it work with our budget.
Patrick and the guys doing the work were a pleasure to have working in the basement. They were respectful and tidy. They always came in with a smile and a shout of ‘good morning’. Patrick and the team created a space that we didn’t even think was possible, maximizing the small unfinished basement space and turning it into something great where we now enjoy spending time.
Before, during and after the project, communication from Rachael was fantastic. She is a joy to work with and makes sure that the homeowners always know what is going on, how things are going etc.
As new homeowners using a contracting team for the first time, Cadence made the process easy and stress free, thank you! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Cadence to anyone.
This is our second project with Cadence Construction and they did not disappoint! We had some idea what we wanted but upon site inspection, Patrick offered some great, creative options that made the space even more inviting. Rachael was always prompt in responding to our inquiries, with great attention to detail. The on-site crew worked really well together and in just over a week we were able to enjoy a beautiful outdoor space well before the summer season. Would highly recommend and use this team again!!
We had a very positive experience with Cadence Construction and Design Inc. and would definitely recommend them for other jobs. Our main floor renovation included making a very broken up floor plan into an open concept, with a 33' steel beam installation right through the middle. The kitchen was a full reno that included a 10' island with stove and range hood, new floors throughout, recessed lighting throughout, and paint and trim. The crews were always on time and very mindful of us as well, seeing as this occurred near the end of 2020 Covid was still a factor and we had parents working at home and a university student as well throughout the entirety of the project. We have been in this home for 34 years and have to say that the changes they did have changed how we live in the home now. We are enjoying the space like we never have before. Working with Cadence Construction and Design Inc was easy and we would call them again in a heartbeat.
Rachael and her team renovated my unfinished basement into a beautiful, cozy space for my parents to live in. The team was incredibly professional, courteous and efficient. I really appreciated Rachael's eye for detail, her coordination of tasks and also keeping me informed every step of the way. Despite the unknowns and set backs of the pandemic, they were able to be ahead of the curve and organize themselves to avoid delays with the renovation. We truly appreciate all the work done and for providing such a great space! We'll definitely miss your company as well. :)
Best of luck on your future projects.
We hired Cadence Construction and Design for some renovations in our home. I met with Rachel, with whom I knew immediately was the one that I wanted to use. I had met with two others before her but they did not see my vision as she did. Her design for the kitchen was amazing. The crew that work on my house was friendly and knowledgeable and always good with advise. (And they were dog lovers) I enjoyed watching the progress. In the end we had a beautiful functioning kitchen that we could be proud of. I was very happy with how they listened to my ideas and incorporated them and how we worked together to design everything. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who needs work done.
Thank you so much Kelley for your kind review on the work we did in your kitchen. We are very happy that you and the family are in love with your space again. It turned out beautifully.
We had used tge services of Cadence Construction for our kitchen reno 3 years ago and the results were amazing!..Rachael paid close attention to our wants and needs and didnt want unnecessary bells and whistles and no extra pressure to do so. And the job was done in amazing timeframes as well.
So when we decided to update the basement den it was was an easy call to Rachael to get a quote.
The finished product is exactly what we asked for and needed. Patrick put in alot of extra time and workmanship on our fireplace mantle a d shelves..the mantle is a work of art!
They pay attention to detail and working with them is a pleasure.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with you both again and we are thrilled that you are so pleased with how everything turned out.
Rachael and Patrick
This is the second time we have used Cadence Construction for a major renovation. This time around we had out backyard deck designed and built. What an amazing transformation! Rachael worked with us through the design process and really captured our wish list and was super flexible to update and change as we made budget and design decisions. Patrick and team were amazing during construction. Super accommodating and kept the construction space organized and clean every day. Patrick personally designed the pergola built over our hot tub and is a key feature to the entire backyard. Both Rachael and Patrick were open with communication and timelines as we dealt with material shortages due to Covid. We will be reaching out to Cadence again when we are ready for our next renovation.
Thank you so much Julie for your very kind review. It was great to work with you both again and we were so happy with the way your deck project turned out. Thank you for trusting Patrick and I with the design and layout of your deck, hot tub placement and pergola. I'm really glad the covid delays and material shortages didn't stop us from getting your new deck done before the end of summer.
Looking forward to working with you and Chris again in the future.
Rachael and Patrick.
We have worked with Cadence in the past. They did a full interior reno that went extremely well. we know one of their strong suites is decks so we hired them last year to do a backyard deck this year. We had scheduled them to start April, but unfortunately the pandemic hit. However, even with everything going on, they were still able to get started as soon as restrictions were lifted. The majority of the work was done as scheduled, with only some minor delays due to supply issues with Covid. As always, Pat and Rachael were always a quick phone call or in person conversation away, and worked with us throughout the project and answered all of our questions. The final deck is the deck of our dreams, and is better than we imagined when we first started the project. We would highly recommend Cadence for any deck work.
Thank you so much Brian for sharing your experience while working with us yet again. We have truly enjoyed getting to know you over these past few years while working on almost every room in your home (only one left lol) The deck project was a large one and it turned out exactly as we hoped. We know you will have many many years of enjoyment entertaining family and friends. Thank you for trusting us once again with your home.
See you again soon
Rachael and Patrick
I’m so glad we decided to use Cadence Construction & Design Inc after interviewing a couple of contractors The main reasons being their reputation for meeting deadlines, attention to detail & Rachael’s role. Our family lived off-site, approx 2 hours away. It was nice to have phone calls with Rachael everyday to discuss progress. She provided a lot of details and always communicated any issues that came up. Pat does excellent work and overall great to work with. My husband really appreciates his direct approach when communicating. The entire team was extremely friendly and worked hard to get us back in our house on time (they were even finished early!). The kitchen and bathroom turned out beautifully - love everything!
As always Pat, Rachel and team came through for us with flying colours.
We were very fortunate the Cadence team work was able to start our project just as things reopened in the spring (2020).
The old deck was removed and the new one erected in very short order, about a week.
We were very pleased with the results and enjoyed it all summer.
Cadence is always caring, reliable, trustworthy and efficient.
We would not hesitate to recommend them for any job big or small.
Love the work.. great company!! Great to deal with and great kitchen work!! Thank you Cadence!!!!!
We have zero regrets in hiring Cadence Construction & Design Inc. for our recent main floor renovation. We are so happy to report that the entire Cadence team was a complete pleasure to work with and that they each far exceeded our expectations!
Patrick and Rachael were very professional and right from the beginning they put our minds at ease by sharing with us that they had just successfully finished opening a main floor very similar to ours. Their in-depth knowledge, confidence, and experience together with their friendly, open and honest personalities made it an easy decision for us.
We quickly learned that this company is 100% trustworthy. The project was so well organized and moved right along the way any homeowner would hope it would. The skill and workmanship was very impressive right down to every little detail! Ongoing communication was excellent and any concerns or questions we had were always addressed right away.
We honestly can’t fault them for anything; I’m so thankful that after scrolling directionless through reviews online that we came to find this particular company and that they took such care in making our main floor open and beautiful and a place that we all love!
We highly recommend Cadence Construction for your project and would, without a doubt, hire them again for our next one!
Thank you so very much for taking the time to write such a kind review. You and Keith were truly incredible clients to work for and we really hope to work with you again the the future.
We wish the absolute best for you and the family.
Rachael and Patrick
After they finished my basement, shut down started so I had to wait two months for my kitchen to get started. I purchased the house new 18 years ago, but everything was builder grade, I had chosen nothing in the way of flooring, cabinets or layout. I added colour to the walls so my home wounded feel so basic and depressing. So waiting a couple more months was doable. I was rewarded with a kitchen I love. It looks timeless and French country. I love it. Flooring is great with beautiful stairs to match. They did an excellent job with getting rid of all the popcorn ceiling on my main floor. My home feels more like home because it has my taste in the design. They did a great job.
It was a delight to work with you again on your main floor and kitchen renovation. It definitely was a challenge with all the covid-19 delays but we couldn't be happier with how well your job turned out. You were a wonderful client to work with and I'm sure the crew will truly miss your cooking :)
Thanks again for being such a great client to work for.
I highly recommend this company. Rachael and Patrick are very professional, trustworthy and organized. They did a beautiful job on my large basement and kept me on budget. My family and I love our new basement. Rachael was very helpful when we went shopping for tile, flooring and other accessories. I have delt with another company in the past on a smaller project and once they started, the owner was hard to reach and rarely returned my phone calls the same day. This had me search for a new company to do my basement. Luckily I found Cadence. My experience was much different with Cadence Construction and Design. Every phone call and email was answered right away or same day. This is very important to me, makes me feel that they care and because of this, they will be doing my main floor and kitchen next and any future projects that will come. They are not only my contractors but now my new friends.
Gina you are such a wonderful client. Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience with us. We are looking forward to being able to start working again once this lockdown is over so that we can start phase two of your project (Main floor/kitchen). Your Basement turned out beautifully and we hope you have many many years of enjoyment in your newly finished space.
We recently hired Cadence Construction to renovate our 20+ year old powder bathroom - – BEST CHOICE we could have made. Not only did they meet our expectations, they went above and beyond in every regard to the finest detail providing the highest quality in product and workmanship. From the initial meeting Rachael and Patrick took the time to understand what was important to us providing valuable feedback and considerations. It was very clear from the first meeting that Cadence Construction is passionate about what they do and extremely focused and committed to ensuring their client’s needs are met 100%. We can’t say enough about Cadence Construction and their incredible employees and contractors - from Rachael’s superb project management ensuring everything came together on time and within budget to the exceptional talent of contractors who were thorough and professional and literally some of the nicest people we have ever met not to mention their exceptional talent, quality of workmanship and attention to detail. The team at Cadence Construction quickly became more than our contractor, they became trusted friends who you knew had your best interests at heart and everyone treated our home and pets as if it where their own. It’s bittersweet to have this project completed but we are extremely impressed with the quality of the product, attention to detail and amazed how great our new powder bathroom looks and all the hard work that went into the final product. A huge thank you to Rachael and Patrick and the entire Cadence team. Amazing people, amazing final product!! Quality of workmanship is next to none and very competitive pricing!! We would strongly recommend Cadence Construction and will definitely have them back for future projects.
Wow! Thank you so very much for taking the time to share your experience in this incredible review. You were such amazing clients to work for and we really hope to wok with you again in the near future.
Rachael and Patrick
We first decided to go with Cadence Construction and Design vs their competitors because they genuinely seemed to care. Secondly their contract was so detailed that I was confident there wouldn’t be any surprise costs down the line. Both have been true to the end. Everything we requested was met to our satisfaction including all last touch ups. I am incredibly happy with our kitchen and main floor. Rachael, Pat and their entire team were professional, respectful and wonderful to work with. Their customer service and workmanship was the best experience I have had working with any contractors thus far. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer my friends and family to use Cadence and I will certainly return for any future renovations. Thank you for a fabulous kitchen and main floor!!!
We hired Cadence Construction and Design to renovate our unfinished basement and we couldn't be happier! When we sat down for the initial consultation with Rachael and Pat we knew right away this was the contractor for us. They left us with a good feeling of being trustworthy and honest and they didn't disappoint. Rachael did a fantastic job of taking us shopping to pick out things needed for the basement and keeping us on budget as well as conveying our vision of the basement to Pat and his team who also did an amazing job of turning that vision into reality! The work team that comes in are all super nice and friendly and very respectful of our home. They worked quickly and always made sure that everything was cleaned up each day. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Cadence to anybody and we already have our next project in the works with them which they'll be starting soon! If you're looking for a trustworthy contractor who do what they say they're going to and within the budget agreed on these guys are for you!
Thank you so very much Dav for being such incredible clients to work with. We're looking forward to getting started on the upstairs renovation and creating a main floor you'll love.
We contacted Cadence Construction annd Design to discuss finishing our unfinished basement. Right from the first meeting we felt very comfortable with Rachael and Patrick. We felt that they understood our wants and needs for the space. They offered advice and suggestions on the best layout and materials for the job. All of which was laid out in the quote we received only a few days after our first meeting.
We met with Rachael to select flooring and fixtures and she was very conscious of our budget and helped us make selections that we loved and could afford.
Everyone that came into our home was considerate and friendly. They answered our many questions happily. Rachael always responded quickly to our phone calls, emails and text messages throughout the project.
We added a few things that were outside of the original scope which turned out beautifully. Our built-in cabinets are exceptional and we have received many compliments on them and our new basement as a whole. Patrick and his team are excellent at building custom pieces. You won't be disappointed!
We ended up with a beautiful finished basement with lots of custom touches that we absolutely love!
Many thanks to Rachael, Patrick and team for making our vision a reality!
Thank you Lara for taking the time to write a review for us. We're so happy you and the family now have a new cozy hangout in the house for many years of enjoyment.
It was a pleasure working with you.
We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome of our full home renovation (back to the walls).
Patrick and Rachael Burden, owners of Cadence Construction and Design and their incredible team, turned our vision into a reality.
Rachael is extremely thorough in every aspect of the process. She has a great sense of urgency to get things done on time, along with a keen eye for design, which helped immensely with the million decisions that have to be made along the way.
There were many moving parts to this full home renovation and Rachael always kept things on track, was a step ahead of everyone and kept us well engaged.
We can't say enough about the team, the process and final product were beyond our expectations and they made it easy!
Patrick's attention to detail and follow-up and woodworking skills are exemplary, so much so we have even commissioned him to build a few other pieces for us.
They are professional in every sense of the word, reliable, passionate about their work and they have a wide network of excellent trades people who we were all very pleased with.
You are in excellent hands with Cadence Construction and Design, we highly recommend them and give them a 10+.
We made new friendships along the way, and will miss having them in our lives everyday.
This is the second project we hired Cadence for. The first project was almost a full home reno that went so well we decided to hire them for the remaining updates. We had water leaking into our basement, and Pat came and gave us an evaluation of the damage before we were even thinking about any additional renovations. Once the home was waterproofed, we had Cadence come and redo the washroom where the water had leaked in, and also had them install some cabinetry. As with the last time, Cadence was amazing in designing the bathroom, and provided incredible design ideas while coordinating with our own, and did an incredible job in finishing the work. Rachael and Pat are incredible to work with, and the rest of their team is friendly and easy to talk to and constantly kept us abreast on how the project was coming along.
It was such a pleasure working with you both again. We're excited to work with you yet again this coming spring. You both are so easy to work for.
Rachael and Patrick
I am extremely happy with my powder room renovation and working with Cadence Contracting. Rachel was a pleasure to work with. Keeping me informed every step of the way with a personal phone call, email and visit to inspect the work. Always with an upbeat and pleasant attitude which made it feel like a collaborative approach.
The contractors hired were wonderful. Highly professional. Highly skilled. Pleasant and friendly (a huge plus) and also kept my home as clean as possible while demolition was being done. I never once came home to a house that was a mess or covered with dust and debris - for which I am very grateful.
I certainly recommend Cadence Construction and would work with them again.
We are so glad that Rachael and Patrick Burden of Cadence Construction and Design Inc., agreed to take on the renovations in our condo, especially since they usually work on larger projects.
The work they did for us was excellent - the kitchen turned out great, the flooring and painting throughout was nicely done and the small bathroom turned out just as I wanted. The electrical and plumbing work is also all satisfactory.
Rachael is a really nice, friendly lady and was fabulous in helping me pick out colours, tiles, flooring etc. She was always available if I had questions and kept me up to date on how the work schedule was going.
We highly recommend Rachael and Patrick and their company - Cadence Construction and Design Inc.
We appreciate the fine quality of work done by Cadence Construction with our basement renovation. They did a professional job and followed code. We had the comfort to know that they would do things well. We also appreciate their follow up for touch ups. Even after a couple of months after the work was complete, they came in to touch up something minor for us. It further reiterates their commitment to value the workmanship and warranty.
Thank you Patrick, Rachael and your team.
A kitchen Reno is quite the struggle living without a kitchen for weeks. However the final product is well worth the struggles and Cadence Construction took my old unfunctioning kitchen and made it into the amazing one it is today. Tones of storage, counter space with lots of lighting and now super functional. I could not have imagined a better kitchen. Great job. Thanks to the entire crew for such an amazing job.
Thank you Kimberly for taking the time to share your experience. You were a pleasure to work for and hope you have many many years of enjoyment in your new kitchen.
Excellent service with Cadence Construction from start to finish. Rachel was very knowledgeable regarding different products available for decking & had wonderful suggestions. Pat & his crew were punctual professional & reliable. I couldn’t be more thrilled with my new deck. Anyone who visits is raving about it. Also the project was started & completed i at the time & in the time frame promised. No false promises here. Cadence construction is the real deal!!!
Cadence Construction and Design really came through for us on our kitchen Reno. They were professional, knowledgeable and fast. We couldn’t be happier with the end result. Thanks to Rachael for her expert opinions and suggestions. She had every detail organized, and made the whole process very easy for us. Jay’s amazing work and attention to detail really show in the finished product. I highly recommend Cadence and wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again.
You were such amazing clients. We truly hope we get to work with you both again.
Thank you so much for the great review, we wish you the very best in your new kitchen :)
Renovation included 3 washrooms, installation of HVAC and vents, removal of wallpaper and carpets and installation of laminate and sanding and finish of hardwood floors, painting, kitchen redesign, and probably a lot more not listed. As our general contractor, Cadence went above and beyond what we would have expected. For such a big project, we went in expecting lots of issues and delays. To our surprise, whenever issues arose, Cadence dealt with them while keeping us informed of what was happening. While stressful at times due to the scope of the project, we never felt neglected and it was truly a collaborative effort working with Cadence. Pat, Rachael, and the rest of her team were a pleasure to work with. We are already planning our next projects with them, and would gladly recommend them for jobs big and small. A link to the before and after photos is here (May 30th post): https://t.co/jY3FYl6wdo
Bryan and Genevieve,
We really enjoyed working for you both. I'm going to miss the puppies too!
Looking forward to working with you again in the future and hope you love your new home.
Couldn't have asked for a more professional contractor. From the first email and succeeding telephone conversations with Rachael our deck was finished in 3 days as promised! Patrick was very accomodating and tailored our deck to what we want. I would recommend them to anybody looking for an honest and reliable contractors!
Thank you so much Isabel, you both were such a pleasure to work with, and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
Dave and I wont to thank the team of workers that build our deck Mark and Dave were great guys very experienced at there job if you wont the job well done give Rachel call would have them do a job for us any time.
Dave and Gladys.
Thank you both so much for your kind words. I am so thrilled that you have a safe deck now to enjoy for many years.
You were a pleasure to work for.
I am thrilled at the work done by Cadence. Both contractors, Jay and Rob, were very friendly and professional.
Rachael and her team kept us in the loop and up to date from start to finish. The Cadence team made us feel at ease during the whole process and their workmanship is awesome. The transformation of my basement is unbelievable and I am very happy with the finished product. We are already discussing future projects in my home with Cadence.
You and Lynn were fantastic clients! We hope you love your new basement for many many years. Looking forward to the next project so we can work with you both again.
I signed my contract with Rachel October 2017 so that my job could be one of the first on their docket for summer 2018. Cadence Construction kept their word and my job was started May 2018. Mark and Dave were very professional and knew what they were doing. I asked for some additional work to be done and not only was Rachel more than accommodating but Mark and Dave did it with a smile on their faces. The deck turned out to be even better than what I had imagined. Rachel is a lovely human being and helped me design what I was envisioning. She treated my project as if it was her own, with many site visits to make sure I was happy:) Any questions or concerns I had during the work was being done, were always answered/rectified. Very few issues after the job was completed, and even those were looked after immediately. I cannot say enough good things about Cadence Construction and cannot wait until our next project with them.
Rachael and Cadence were amazing from day1 to the end. We got the personal touch and advice you would expect from a friend or close relative as well as first rate workmanship. Professional and very trustworthy. We have already hired them to renovate our ensuite bathroom.
Thank you Rick, We are looking forward to working with you again on your Master bath project.
We really appreciate the kind words.
My family had just lost a loved one and I was desperate to find a contractor that would be able to renovate my basement to enable my daughter and 3 children to have a place to live. Right from the start, I was very impressed with Cadence Construction thoroughness, professionalism and quick response. Rachael (one of the owners) arrived at my home for the consultation and I didn't have to say much - It was like she was reading my mind as she knew just what was needed. Rachael made sure I was comfortable every step of the way and always available to answer any questions I had. Patrick and Rachel were very conscientious, honest and straightforward- never giving false expectations with what they could do given the tight budget and time-frame they had to work with. Patrick and his crew were friendly, very hard working and trustworthy. I now call them all friends. I cannot thank them enough for all their hard work. I would highly recommend Cadence Construction and Design to anyone.
I highly recommend Cadence Construction, the basement needed to be done within a 4 to 6 week window and it was! They are extremely professional, clean and fair in price.
They were very flexible and patient with us.
I will definitely hire them again for the next project!
Thank you so much!
Thank you Kim
Rachael / Patrick and their crew were very professional and accommodating.
Rachael bent over backwards to ensure we were happy and satisfied with all aspects of the job.
Some of the sub contractors were not so professional as they were cutting the custom cabinetry in our garage without notifying us...and left a big mess.
I hired Cadence Construction and Design after interviewing two other companies. Right off the bat I was impressed with the thoroughness and professionalism of Rachael, one of the owners. During the entire process I was kept up-to-date on the progress of the renovation. All my questions were answered in a timely manner either face to face or by email. Jason the foreman was very accommodating and went out of his way to make sure my basement renovation turned out how I wanted it to be. All the trades from plumbing, electrical to carpentry were polite and respectful. Some unforeseen complications with the plumbing arose and it was handled with aplomb. Budget came in a little over planned, however, with a 90 year old house, surprises are common. I am very pleased with the final result. I would highly recommend Cadence Construction and Design.
Overall, our experience with Cadence was good. Rachel and Patrick were on time for their consultation appointments, were helpful in the planning phases, stayed within our budget and were always available for input and answering our questions. The guys they employ to do the work were great, friendly, and very hard working - Dave and Rob were awesome!
The only area of improvement would be in the details. Once the basement was complete, the guys had to come back several times to fix things that were over-looked, or not done to our standard - example, the surround shower kit was installed crookedly. Dave came promptly and fixed it by removing it, and starting from scratch - very professional and knew immediately how it should be fixed. Other than taking a bit more time to make sure the details are not rushed, we were happy with the results.
Thank you Angela for taking the time to write the review. We appreciate your constructive criticism and will definitely make those improvements in the future. It was great working with you and wish you the very best.
From start to finish Rachel and Patrick were a pleasure to deal with. Cadence truly has the customer in mind.
No idea was off the table and they worked with us to create what we now feel is truly an oasis in our backyard. The pictures do not do justice to the final product and level of detail and workmanship. All this while keeping the project on track and on budget even with our last minute requests.
We look forward to working with Rachel, Patrick and the Cadence crew on our future projects.
P.S. Drinks this summer on the deck!
From the the very beginning when Cadence came out and did the consultation with my wife and I, we knew we were in good hands as they were very knowledgeable as well very customer service orientated. Throughout the project the team was amazing how they cleaned up at the end of each day to take the time and playing with our dog. When we had questions or concerns throughout the project Cadence was there answering them and and addressed our concerns to our satisfaction. The quality of finishes are amazing, you can tell the each employee cares what they are doing and how they want the company they work for represented. Even after they have left and the projects are wrapped up, we have asked them to come back and do minor touch ups that went unnoticed through the final inspections and they have come back no questions asked. I will definitely be using Cadence Construction for my future projects. I strongly suggest anyone to give them a call for any projects that they are considering.
We were very please with Rachel/Patrick and their team. They did a great job.
We wanted to renovate our basement for a long time and finally were able to do it. After our first meeting with Rachael, she came up with a plan and what will be the process for the whole reno.
Once the renovation started her team discovered some issues (who doesn't!!!) and they add to jacked up our house by 2 inches and build a new support beam.
All the tradesmen that came to our house did an excellent job and really worked with us toward what we had envisioned.
The whole renovation took quite some time but at the end we are really happy with the result
As of Rachael and Patrick, they really make sure that you understand everything that it is happening and they make sure that you spend your money wisely.
It was very nice to work with them
We are so pleased you both are happy with your basement. Thank you so much for the kind review, it was a pleasure working for you.
After putting off a kitchen reno for years after hearing stories of unkept timelines, over budget, less than professional work and disruption to our home, we finally contracted Cadence contractors due to a referral. After speaking with Rachel we immediately felt confident with her commitments and the company. We did alot of research and finally came back to them.
They were prompt, always keeping their commitments, professional at all times and showed total respect for our home.
If the project went over budget a bit, it was because I chose flooring and the backsplash over the price they had estimated and allowed for.
The job was completed within an extremely reasonable time frame. By the end of week 3 we were in our kitchen again with a few odds and ends needed to finish.
The men working on the job were always professional yet fun to have working here.
We have found our kitchen flawless and are delighted as the results have exceeded our expectations which us something of a rarity these days.
We would not hesitate to refer them to family and friends in the future!
From design to final finish, Cadence went above and beyond to give us our ideal kitchen. Rachel provided suggestions for and insights into our various options for tiles, cupboards, etc. And every tradesperson who worked on the project was courteous, professional, diligent and genuinely keen to ensure we were happy with the work. Any problems that did arise (and every renovation will have problems at some point!) were dealt with properly. As a much-appreciated extra, Cadence even made us a decorative wall hanging from the previous kitchen light fixture! In a time when rogue contractors seem scarily prevalent, we were happy to work with such an honest and trustworthy company as Cadence.
Rachael is great to deal with because she is up front and easy to get a hold of. She helped with ideas and presented us with different options to choose from. She went above and beyond in her homework; for example, finding us different options for purchasing a barn door and providing an electrician to move outlets. The work done was also very good. The guys put up a new wall, painted, and installed the doors and rails in a short time and cleanly. We get lots of complements on the workmanship. Everyone was super friendly and no problem was too big for this crew.
Thank you Ryan, it was a pleasure working with you both.
My husband Mark and I have known Patrick and Rachel for 12 years! We trust them both implicitly and are our immediate "go to's" with any and every home improvement requirement!
Their personal care, concern, advice, and ultimate service has proved invaluable to us, and we delight in recommending Cadence Construction to ANYONE who demands "excellence" and totally reliable work done!!!
Thank you so much for your kind works Mark and Bridget. You both are always a pleasure to work for.
Rachael, Patrick and their team were absolutely amazing. There's literally nothing negative to say at all. Not even constructive feedback. They are just the best. :) They are friendly, courteous, professional, clean, communicative, responsive, reachable, full of great ideas, and delivered absolute top notch quality of workmanship. Despite delays, courtesy of the permit and tree protection process - no fault of theirs at all - they revised our initial idea (to accommodate the requests from urban forestry) and turned the design into something even better than we could ever have imagined. It's more than we hoped for, we love it and we cannot recommend them enough! We would hire them again and again (and I'm sure we will!).
We are so happy everything worked out so well, we love your new backyard oasis and wish you many years of family fun and entertainment on your new deck. :)
We were very happy with the workmanship they were always here on time and cleaned up every day before leaving. Great communication, verbal daily updates of the work that was done each day. Can't wait to get to phase two of kitchen renovations and have them come back to finish it all off.
We are looking forward to working with you both again.
When we decided we were going to do a renovation of our master bedroom and ensuite we knew we were going to need a contractor.
We started looking for contractors to get quotes and noticed a sign on one of our neighbour's lawns for Cadence Construction and Design. We asked our neighbour about their experience with Cadence and they had nothing but good things to say and recommended them highly.
This would be our first major renovation and we had some concerns about putting our home into someone else's hands. All those concerns melted away very quickly after our very first meeting with Rachael and Patrick. Right from the start we felt comfortable with them both and could tell immediately that they understood our vision for our space, made many suggestions appropriate to our concepts and they were very detailed and knowledgeable.
Some of our concerns leading into this process was how overwhelming we had heard the renovation process can be. With Rachael basically holding our hands from design to shopping as well as incorporating any changes we wished to make, it was almost easy.
Patrick and the rest of the crew were amazing to deal with. They were punctual, very respectful of our home and family (including the dogs), courteous, kept the work areas clean, were very knowledgeable and kept us informed throughout the process (not to mention every one of them were very nice guys).
In the end, we had an extensive renovation done involving many subcontractors (of which Cadence uses very qualified professional individuals that seem to share many of Cadence’s values of customer satisfaction as well as being very approachable), and we couldn’t have been any happier. They took our old bedroom and ensuite from being one of our most hated areas of the house to being our favourite.
We would highly recommend Cadence and look forward to working with them again the next time we tackle a renovation. As a matter of fact, we have already given them our highest recommendation as they will be doing a large basement renovation for relatives of ours based on our recommendation.
I highly recommend this company.
From the start they were very professional, listened to what I wanted and offered up helpful suggestions/ options. Estimates/Quotes/ were detailed and easy to understand. Contract clearly outlined deliverables, expectations of both parties and payment terms.
All trades were professional, quick, helpful and kept the work sight clean. Project was completed within budget and time frame originally established. As with any renovation some issues did arise - the company took ownership was quick to react, offer up suggestions and keep me (the homeowner) informed.
I am very happy my new kitchen, entrance way and bathroom.
Paul, We are so pleased with the outcome of your kitchen. You were a fantastic client and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
Thank you for the kind words.
Rachael and Patrick
Dealing with all staff from Cadence we experienced very professional service from start to finish. And we have a beautiful deck to enjoy when the warmer weather comes!
We hope you have many many years of enjoyment and family time on your new deck. It was a pleasure working with you.
Let me just start by saying that, regardless of the project you are undertaking and how much stressful renovations can be, it is a known fact that everybody ends up loving Rachael. You cannot ask for a better partner to go shopping and picking up every piece of your project. She knows what you want, like a mind reader, and she will find it for you even if you have a tight budget like I did. And the guys, I didn't think I could find anyone more obsessed than me with the little details. When I was about to open my mouth to suggest something, they were already taking care of it. They put everything together perfectly, with not a single mistake. They built me a kitchen from scratch in the exact way I told them to and I could not be happier with the result. Regarding the budget, I can only say that they offered us an estimate more or less similar to other contractors, but it was their professionalism, enthusiasm and the variety of ideas they presented us what ultimately made us go to them. I would absolutely recommend Cadence Construction, and we are definitely considering them for other projects.
I really enjoyed our shopping trips and am so pleased you love your kitchen, it looks amazing and we made a great team.
Looking forward to working with you again.
Rachel and Patrick at Cadence Construction have been a dream to work with. Admittedly, this is my first major renovation and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. By the end of the renovation, Rachel feels more like a friend than contractor/project manager.
Some highlights are:
1. From the initial walk through of my home and what my idea for the reno was, Rachel and Patrick showed up on time, and were ready to work. They took everything I said down and offered suggestions without being pushy. This is important to note because, while I loved their suggestions, it just wasn't my idea. They said ok and took my ideas back and provided me with a detailed quote based on what I wanted.
2. This takes me to the quote which was extremely detailed with estimated costs beside every point that we discussed and then some. It was very easy to understand and made me very comfortable with how my money was going to be spent. Rachel let me know that these are estimates and some expenses might be a bit higher if we makes changes along the way while some might be lower if we don't require as many materials as quoted. All would be updated in the end (subtracting and adding as needed)
3. Pre-reno - once the contract was signed Rachel set up a time to meet me and different stores to pick everything out TOGETHER. This was huge because she knows what works and what doesn't, what works within budget and what other options there are that I never would have thought of. If I went out a purchased something myself (sink and faucet, as an example) then it comes off the quote in the end.
4. Reno time - the team that came to my house to do the dirty work was very respectful of that fact that I sometimes work from home and were so good with my young son when he would return from school. They let him participate a little bit and he loves that he got to write his name in our kitchen which will be there forever. I love that it's hidden :)
5. Hit by the reno bug - once things got underway I realized I wanted a few nicer things...of course. Rachel was very helpful and detailed each cost along the way so there were no surprises in the end.
6. Final Result - I am in LOVE!!! My floors look amazing. You can't tell that there was ever nasty popcorn ceiling, i'm in love with my kitchen - so much extra space now with 4 corner cabinets where there none, the trim and caulking is so sleek, etc.
7. Customizations - instead of leaving dead space in my kitchen, the team custom built a floor to ceiling pantry, cute cupboards on either side of my above range microwave and built in fridge with lots of storage above it. Of course this came with costs but it was soooooooo cheap and was discussed beforehand.
8. Tired of reading? I'll stop here as I'm beginning to ramble, but I highly recommend Cadence Construction. The team was great, the execution was flawless and my overall opinion is I'M SO HAPPY.
Now to save for the basement :)
WOW!!! Thank you so much for such an incredible review Cassandra. I must admit, you were very easy to work for and I'm delighted that you love your kitchen again.
Looking forward to working with you again in the future.
The best part of this team is their awesome customer service. Rachel is great & really follows through. The whole team was great and our kids loved them. There were np issues with the workmanship. We had some little details that we weren't happy with at the end and the team was responsive to come fix them up.
Thank you Julie, it truly was a pleasure working with you and your family.
We love our new deck. From start to finish Cadence Construction surpassed our expectations. Their professionalism on every level made our deck building experience flawless and stress free.
Pat and his crew started the deck on time and finished earlier than expected. We love the added touch of our privacy screen.
If your looking for a honest hardworking company then Cadence Construction is the right team.
We are looking forward to many years on our deck.
Craig and Joy
We chose Cadence really because of Pat's reputation and from seeing the shows he was a part of on HGTV - we knew he was well educated in construction and design. However - working with him and his crew really blew us away and surpassed our expectations!
They listened to our ideas and the final result still has our neighbours talking weeks after the project wrapped up!
From start to finish Cadence was amazing to work with, and the team was fantastic to have on hand. We already know we will use them for future projects!
Rachael and Patrick were such a pleasure to work with. From the get go, they walked us through every aspect of the renovation and never set false expectations with timelines. They were very receptive to our input and changes, and were quick to respond to all of our queries. We are extremely happy with the finished product and will certainly be calling on Cadence for our next big job!
I’m extremely happy with the work that Pat and Rachael did on my basement. They listened to my plan and offered great advice at the beginning of the project. From the very start they showed an enthusiasm and expertise that assured me that they were the right choice of contractor.
They worked within our agreed-upon time frame and routinely checked in with me to make sure I was happy with the progress. The finished product is absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t be happier with their work or the whole renovation experience. They made the process painless and kept within budget perfectly. I would highly recommend Cadence Construction to anyone looking for quality work.
We have recently contracted Cadence Contracting to work on our main floor renovation. We had asked for a tight timeline as well as a tight budget for them to work with. They were very conscientious of maintaining the schedule as well as helping us make decisions on changes while keeping the budget in mind. We lived in the house during the main floor renovation and the level of understanding and compassion was exemplary.
We enjoyed the friendships that were made with Rachael, Patrick, Matt and Stuart. We appreciated their guidance to help make decisions, the level of professionalism and the workmanship that was provided. We would highly recommend the Cadence team to any of our friends or anyone looking to have a renovation done with a positive experience.
We will be using Cadence for a next renovation!!!
Darren and Lisa C.
Exceptional work . The crew was amazing, well knowledge and vary helpful in helping chose the design.. I was so happy that they came in under budget. Totally recommend this company.
Thank you so much Rachelle, you and Paul were fantastic clients and we hope you love your new kitchen for years to come.
Cadence construction helped me an immense amount by taking this job to revamp and freshen up my house before we sold it. They did a great job and were very communicative with us. Rachael is a pleasure to deal with; honest and straightforward. The job was done well, finished on time, and quoted correctly. Stuart was an awesome worker and make sure to get feedback from us when needed. We ended up selling our house for 46K over asking and I know they helped with that. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again, oh wait! I didn't!! I hired them for my brand new kitchen in my new house based on how happy I was with this job.
I can not say enough about Cadence Construction. From the initial consult, we felt completely comfortable with their knowledge, skill, and professionalism. They worked with our vision to perfect it and make it a reality and now our master suite looks like it belongs in a magazine. In addition to being highly skilled craftsmen, the customer service of the whole team is impeccable and they really took the time to make sure we were completely happy. Initially we were worried that our baby would be upset by the commotion of the renovation but the guys were amazing with her and became like family to her. We cannot wait to work with Cadence Construction again on future projects!
I had interviewed a few contractors for my master bathroom reno but when I met Rachael and Patrick my search was over. They listened to what I wanted, offered their input on design ideas and when it was all said and done- came in on budget! Rachael and I met on 3 separate occasions to go fixture, tile and lighting shopping. I couldn't have pulled this masterpiece together without her help! They delivered the master bathroom retreat I was looking for. While they were there I also got them to renovate my laundry room which is now so inviting I actually look forward to doing laundry!
Cadence Construction built our deck this past fall. We had an existing deck that they completely demolished as well as built the two tier deck to replace it. We found Pat's design and creativity fit perfect with our 'style'. Rachael was a pleasure to work with and made sure we were happy with all the plans before starting anything. They were a pleasure to work with and we would recommend them to anyone.
We hired Cadence Construction to completely renovate our kitchen and replace flooring throughout our main floor. We gave them a tight timeline as we purchased our new home and had a short window before we moved in with our family of 6. Rachael and Pat were very professional and did great work. They were always on site when they said they would be and if there were any issues, communicated clearly so we could come up with solutions. We are thrilled with how our kitchen turned out and we would highly recommend them to anyone. A great experience.
Cadence Construction was very professional in the services they provided. Patrick's design suggestions helped enhance what we had already designed ourselves, to create a totally unique space. They worked with 3rd party companies to co-ordinate our gas fireplace, and stair installation with minimal involvement from us. The almost daily update from Rachel was great to ensure we both were on the same page in what was completed and what was still to be done. Would gladly recommend to friends and family.
Cadence Construction did a great job. They gave us the best quote, started and finished the job in the time frame given, arrived everyday on time and worked fast and clean. We even had something we needed to call them back for and they were prompt and ensured that everything was taken care of. Both Rachael and Patrick provided excellent customer service throughout the entire process. We will be using them again when it comes time for our next Reno!
